    Self-love: Filling the Success Void with Marc Weinstein

    Self-love: Filling the Success Void with Marc Weinstein

    Welcome back to Holy Sh!t We’re Alive!

    We’ve got a double podcast this week with this episode going live both here on Holy Sh!t We’re Alive and on the Look Up Podcast with Marc Weinstein.

    Marc and I met at an Ayahuasca ceremony 4 years ago and then reconnected about a year and a half later at another ceremony.

    At that first Ayahuasca ceremony, we both had incredible experiences that have played a large role in our own individual journeys of self-growth, and we’ve enjoyed staying in contact over the years to share our experiences with each other.

    In this episode we’ll be talking about psychedelics, self-love, relationships, the success void, my new book, and more.

    We’ll be sharing personal experiences on our different paths to spiritual growth, mindfulness, and overall wellness, as well as tackling some of the inner stories we’ve had to overcome.

    Also, did I mention that I have space for two new private coaching clients? 

    If you’re interested in finding out more, DM me on Instagram and we can set up a call.

    From NFL Linebacker to Glorified Janitor, Reclaiming a Fragmented Life with Caleb Campbell

    From NFL Linebacker to Glorified Janitor, Reclaiming a Fragmented Life with Caleb Campbell

    This week on Holy Sh!t We’re Alive we’re talking with Caleb Campbell.

    Caleb grew up in a Christian home on a farm in Texas with a deep fear of never being enough.

    His high school football career led him to West Point where he made national news and eventually was drafted as a linebacker into the NFL.

    Despite his success and fame, nothing could satisfy his deep longing for acceptance, approval, and belonging.

    The NFL applied just enough pressure to leave his life in fragments, so he left it all behind.

    Through a series of unexpected events he ended up moving to Canada on a whim, and began a journey to heal the emotional trauma that was keeping him stuck and miserable in life.

    In this episode, Caleb shares the raw, gripping, emotional journey that led him from a life full of rage, disappointment, and suicidal ideation to a life of radical self-acceptance and deep satisfaction.

    “intersection of the human and the business” striving for a life of balance and fulfillment.

    In this episode, Michelle shares her story of growing up in an addiction fueled household, how that shaped her into an overachieving hustler who felt she had to prove her worth, and how she overcame those tendencies to build a balanced and happy life.

    Michelle talks about the myriad of obstacles she has overcome on her way to figuring out what she really wants out of life and the legacy that she wants to leave behind.

    Addiction, rehab, homelessness, and coming out as gay. Learning to love yourself with Alli York.

    Addiction, rehab, homelessness, and coming out as gay. Learning to love yourself with Alli York.

    Holy sh!t, Alli York is alive.

    Alli’s story is incredible. At a young age, she started to believe that there was something wrong with her and that God made a mistake.

    This led her down a path of denial — denial of her of sexuality, identity, beliefs, and purpose.

    Alli went through EIGHT rounds of rehab treatment struggling with heroin and alcohol addictions until finally living on the streets in Salt Lake City for over a year.

    Alli shares her experience begging for a few dollars a day to feed her habit and ultimately coming to the realization if she stayed on her path, she would end up dead.

    She finally said a sincere prayer… She said, “If I have a purpose, I need to know.”

    Alli’s story of recovery is incredible — she breaks down how she learned to love herself through the 12-step system, her own journaling, and her “mirror work.”

    You’ll love this episode. Can’t wait for you to get to know Alli.

    Following the White Rabbit: My June 10th Spiritual Awakening

    Following the White Rabbit: My June 10th Spiritual Awakening

    Happy June 10th, the most beautiful day of the year!

    For those that don’t know, 4 years ago, on June 10th my life changed overnight. Still, to this day, it is the most profound, most insane, most beautiful experience I’ve ever had.

    Back in 2016, I had begun to really set focus on personal development, healing, and more interpersonal (rather than external) performance.  I was focusing on habits and goals, but I was so asleep at the wheel that I needed something to rock me to my core, something so big and so significant to really get my attention, to continue down my spiritual path.

    It all started with a random audible credit and a book called Stealing Fire that opened my eyes to the benefits of psychedelic medicine.

    In this episode, I share the story of my June 10th awakening.

    Also, did I mention that I have space for two new private coaching clients?

    Pornography, complacency, and addiction. Rewiring your brain with Frank Rich.

    What’s it like to live a life without consequences?

    Frank Rich grew up in a home where he had very few consequences for his actions… Drinking, smoking weed, drugs, pornography and more were all part of his life from a very early age.

    But does he have regrets?

    Absolutely not.

    Through his own experience with addiction, money, and chasing success he learned what works for him and what doesn’t.

    After leaving a high-paying job, Frank developed curriculum to help men battling addictions to pornography — focusing not on the MORALITY side, but on the SCIENCE behind what pornogrphy does to your brain and how to UNWIRE learned beliefs.

    So what does he say about regret?

    Everything in our lives leads us to where we are now.

    This episode is a great listen and Frank shares his seven-step method for overcoming addictions and rewiring any negative behavior.
