    Ep 186 Recreating Your Life & Summer Vacation

    Ep 186 Recreating Your Life & Summer Vacation

    We all just went through a year of unexpected twists and turns. What can we learn from it? Anytime we go through something dark, difficult, or traumatic, it changes us. That means we may find that we have new reasons for doing what we’re doing, we may care about different things, and we might have to reprioritize. It’s a scary time and an exciting time because you get to destroy and then create. On today’s show, I go into some questions you can ask yourself to help you recreate your life with the perspective of who you are today.

    These questions include:


    How am I defining myself?
    Where is the life?
    Where are my allies?
    Where are the breadcrumbs?
    What is motivating me today?
    What is most fulfilling?
    Where am I looking for validation?
    What are my three goals for the rest of 2021?
    What is my origin story?

    What got you here won’t get you there.

    Ep 182 Experience Growth Without Suffering with Sophie McLean

    Is growth possible without suffering? Leveling up in life requires a ton of growth - both in confidence and in skills. How can we acquire both of these without suffering? Our guest today is Sophie McLean, a wisdom teacher who has spent decades leading transformational seminars to over 200,000 people around the world. She likes to explore the universal existential questions of “Who am I?” and “What is my life about?” while also focusing on the nature of what it means to be human. She is the author of The Elegance of Simplicity: A Wisdom Teacher’s Epic Journey to Awareness and offers an effortless pathway to awareness. She also shares the secrets she's discovered about the process of self-discovery, how  you know when you’ve discovered something meaningful about yourself, and how to settle on a topic or brand for yourself if you want to be a known speaker or author. Get access to Sophie's free course, The Call of the Soul, here. 

    More about Sophie: 

    Born in Algeria, educated in Morocco and France, and with a professional career in the USA and UK, Sophie McLean has had an eventful life. She’s been a helicopter pilot, a teacher, a designer, a relief worker, a war refugee, and a CEO. She’s been shot at, shipwrecked, and widowed. She’s lived on a farm, a boat, a penthouse, and an ashram.

    Ep 181 A Better Way to Deal with Change with Erin Davidson

    A breakup can be more than a romantic relationship -- it can be the loss of a job, a business, a move to a new city, losing a cherished friendship, anything.

Erin Davidson (pronouns: she/her), MA, RCC, is a writer and Registered Clinical Counselor in Vancouver B.C. specializing in sex and relationship therapy. We focus on her new book, Break Through the Breakup, to show how the breakup can be a catalyst for self-discovery and growth.

    More about Erin:

    Erin works with clients of all genders, sexual orientations, and relationship dynamics to bring more compassion and joy to their connection with themselves, their sexuality, and their relationships. She is the author of two books: Break Through the Breakup and Thriving in Non-Monogamy. You can read more of her writing and connect with her on Instagram @erin.e.davidson and her website: www.erinedavidson.com.
