    Don't Put Off Gratitude - Nancy Stevens

    Don't Put Off Gratitude - Nancy Stevens

    Nancy Stevens is Mom to 4 sons age 14, 16, 23 and 24.  She is married to a Grammy award winning music producer.  Becoming a more grateful and an everyday grateful person began when she took her first yoga class and the practice of being grateful through mindfulness was introduced.     

    She often felt a covering of negativity and frustration and realized that this was not how she wanted to be and live.   

    This way was emotionally crippling.

    The open door of a non judgmental yoga class placed her on the path of healing and gratitude growth.    

    Nancy is a healer and uses her expertise as a yoga teacher, yoga trainer and wellness coach to help people.  

    Gratitude in her own words and experience: "Practicing gratitude on a personal and professional level has changed me from the inside out, literally."

    Gratitude Instead Of Appologies - Amanda Elder

    Gratitude Instead Of Appologies - Amanda Elder

    Amanda Elder is a teacher turned stay-at-home mom, proficient in sword fighting and diaper changing. Amanda has a background in education and child development, but now stays home with her children and writes about them during nap times. 

    She blogs at stayathomepanda.com and she contributes to numerous online publications like The Huffington’s Post, where I read an inspiring story that led to this interview. 

    We spoke about: 
    • Changing from “everything I do and need is an inconvenience” to a positively strong stance
    • Using gratitude to increase your confidence (in a way you most probably didn’t think about yet)
    • Apologies and gratitude, which one is more kind and polite actually, and what’s the effect they have on people 
    • Asking for a raise in a healthy way, being in a mindset of gratitude Not assuming the lower position in relationships and knowing your worth without apology

    Vietnam War Veteran On Peace & Thankfulness - Claude AnShin

    Vietnam War Veteran On Peace & Thankfulness - Claude AnShin

    At the age of 17, Claude AnShin enlisted in the US Army and served in the Vietnam War as a helicopter crew chief. He was honorably discharged at the age of 20 and was awarded numerous medals, including a Purple Heart. After battling severe post-traumatic stress, isolation, and addiction, he discovered Buddhist practice and began intensive training and study. In 1995 he was fully ordained as a Zen Buddhist monk in the Japanese Soto Zen tradition.

    Since then, Claude AnShin has dedicated his life to addressing the causes and consequences of violence, war, and suffering in and among individuals, families, and societies. Using the tools of Buddhist practice and insight, he educates and accompanies people in the peaceful transformation of conflict and suffering.

    Claude AnShin is also the founder of the Zaltho Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 1993, dedicated to the peaceful transformation of conflict, violence, and trauma in individuals and groups.

    He is the author of two books: his award-winning memoir At Hell’s Gate: A Soldier’s Journey from War to Peace and his new book, published a few months ago, Bringing Meditation to Life: 108 Teachings on the Path of Zen Practice.

    Claude AnShin Thomas' message of addressing suffering and “making peace with our unpeacefulness” through an active meditation practice, based in daily life, would make a beautiful addition to your interviews because he teaches how the human mind can repair PTSD and live a state of ease and calm no matter what horrors it's experienced.

Inspiring!

I love this podcast! The host’s voice is so calming; his desire to spread love and be the good is so inspiring. I’m grateful he has taken the leap of faith to do this podcast- I feel so much more lead to work on my own gratitude practice.

Grateful for this podcast!

I don't see myself as a Negative Nancy, but I'm definitely a realist -- and as such, when the world gets dark, I can find it difficult to maintain an attitude of gratitude. That's why I so appreciate Georgian's approach... it's authentic, empowering, and inspirational. Grateful for this outstanding space!
