When someone shares their experience openly and honestly, something magical happens: you’re able to see yourself in that story, connect with them, and grow together. The Gravity Project is an experiment in consciousness, community, and connection, and we invite you to join us in our mission to elevate humanity by inspiring, connecting, and empowering individuals and communities.
The human experience - shared fully, insightfully, and profoundly. These are journeys worth hearing.

Doing Good Now
I feel like I was eavesdropping on this conversation with two dear friends over coffee. Insightful, authentic, and heartfelt. Another reminder that life is a winding road that can be joyous, playful, loving, uncomfortable, sad and all the things that we must embrace it ALL to be fully alive.
Authentic courageous storytelling
Gravity has become my go-to podcast when I need inspiration. I love the authenticity of the guests—their willingness to go deep and tell all. Brett’s ability to ask insightful questions, and listen with empathy is unlike no other. Each episode provides an opportunity to learn live a better life.
Like Malcom Gladwell’s 10,000 hours phenomenon described in ‘Outliers’, Brett concerns us with the specific challenges successful people overcame in their childhood. Brett links these methods learned and adapted by his guests during their childhood and observes how these traits were vital in marking the guest who they are today and their noteworthy contributions possible. This is such an underserved area of thought. Some of the same things people hide about themselves -to themselves and to others - turn out to be the catalyst making them great. It takes a thoughtful, professional-grade listener to make these connections and make them available. We are lucky the stars align and Brett is taking the time and energy to publish these stories. They are a window into how people become successful because of their ways of overcoming the challenges they face. Most enjoyable!!
