    #186 A Place To Heal - with Fiona Arrigo

    This week's guest on Being Human is intuitive healer, mentor and life teacher Fiona Arrigo.
    What I found so compelling about Fiona is her profound belief that we can heal ourselves. With so many of us right now - including me sometimes - seeking external sources for our wellbeing, she's part of a growing movement of people rediscovering their innate healing potential.
    On this basis, she has developed her healing method The Arrigo Programme, where she offers a multi-layered approach to anything from anxiety and depression to relationship issues, chronic pain, or simply a feeling of losing our way.
    We talk:
    What it means to be humanWorking on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levelsHow surviving a severe car crash became a spiritual awakeningHow there is no blueprintOwning "I don't know"Links:

    #185 Post Growth - with Tim Jackson

    > Sign Up For Our Newsletter: http://www.firsthuman.com/being-human-newsletter/
    This week's guest on Being Human is ecological economist and writer Tim Jackson.
    Tim's view is that we need to give up our obsession with GDP and focus instead on human progress. He envisions a return to a focus on virtue and a re-prised role for institutions to integrate the desires of individuals with their social obligations. 
    His book Post Growth is both a manifesto for system change and an invitation to rekindle our connection with what it means to be human.

    This week's guest on Being Human is Marina Efaimoglou. She has an interesting life story, to say the least.
    Whilst still in her twenties she was running her own investment firm having survived a cancer with 25% survival odds. The scare caused her re-evaluate her life. She later received a second diagnosis. This time, she was able to heal purely through natural methods.
    Her health quest led her to create the Euphoria Retreat in the Taygetus Mountains near Sparta in Greece. But it’s not all salads and massages, at its core is a spiritual inquiry into why we’re here.
