It gets better and better

I often listen to this podcast as my dog and I are walking, and the amazing thing is how often the information being relayed seems to be meant for my ears at that exact moment. Long ago there was encouraging words about making art "as if no one was watching," then this summer Pete Holmes talked about Ram Dass' advice re meditation (I am an expert avoider), then Father Greg Boyle blew my mind about how tenderness is needed above all when dealing with ourseves and other people, and just when I thought that interview couldn't be topped (and I told 20 people about it), yesterday I listened to Mark Wollyn and his theory of family inherited trauma. I have a therapy appt today and I have bought two of Mark's books, one for me and one for my therapist, and we are going to talk about this! What happens when I listen to these interviews is nothing short of internal transformation, and I am so grateful. I am currently on the patreon website to donate, because it is SO SO worth it. BTW, Sam, in this last interview with Mark Wollyn, you never sounded so eloquent and grounded and "in" your body, like you really came in to yourself in a grounded and exciting way. I could sense the learning happening due to Mark's work, and it was reflected in your voice and speech. Hard to put in words, but it was definitely there. Thank you for what you do. Perhaps there is no "What should I be doing?" Perhaps you are doing it. Right now. Today. Father Boyle quoted Rumi (and I have it on a post it note in my car now) who said, "Stay in the present, where everything happens." Never forget that the Universe has your back, and it will bring you your life unfolding, day by day. Cheers. Betsy Ellis

Sam & guests share so much

This has become my favorite podcast. Sam begins each interview with a “who are you?” And what follows are thoughtful answers with amazing, creative humans who never fail to inspire me. The “dear data” interview with Giorgio Lupi blew my mind, but my favorite is always the one I’m listening to at any given time.

I’m a religious dropout, and found value here

The Unshakeable Goodness episode gave me a spiritual idea I could hang with for the first time in ten years. I grew up in a tight-knit evangelical community and followed that all the way through Bible college and becoming a missionary. But then I couldn’t preach that exclusive message anymore. Father Boyle shared something special: don’t take a message to others but receive them and let them reach you; be tender toward each other. This resonates. Thanks, Sam, for opening up these conversations for all of us to hear.
