Light In A Spoon showed up in my life 16 years ago when I picked up a book called "I Heard God Laughing, Renderings of Hafiz". Each poem cracked open bits of my heart and mind as I let the humor and wisdom of this ancient master seep into the deeper parts of ME.
The MAGIC and SELFLESSNESS of 'A Poet' ignited a fire that burned hot with possibility in the secret place, unexpressed...until NOW.
Light In A Spoon, A Poem By Hafiz
A Poet is someone who can pour light into a spoon Then raise it To Nourish
Your beautiful parched, holy mouth. (Hafiz)

    Episode 28 – Sam Goewey A Lovable Tragedy

    Episode 28 – Sam Goewey A Lovable Tragedy

    I met Sam in the rooms of a 12 Step Program for substance abuse. Sam has a very unique view of the world and his recovery, including “drinking having a spiritual component” (listen close for that one). He referred to himself as a ‘lovable tragedy’…the dude is just damned lovable.



    As I’ve come to know Sam, his wisdom and his heart for others has been attractive. I am pretty sure you’ll come to love him too.



    Sam is a poet and generously pours his light into a spoon and he lifts it to nourish many beautiful parched holy souls. For those who understand service  to others, you know what I mean.



    Sam offers resources that have moved the needle for him. Find them on Amazon. Click on the links.

    You will be inspired by this courageous woman and incredibly generous human being. You will also love her just released book “All Bets Are Off”



    Betsy took on her life right where she found herself. Diabetic, dramatically overweight. She hired a coach, Spencer Newell; yes the same Spencer Newel of Episode 24 and the life partner of last weeks guest Tracey Hulick of Episode 26.



    Betsy Thank you for your incredible determination to transform your life and then the courage to  lend your voice to encourage all of us to “not go silently into the night” but lean in to life, find the inspiration required and get busy taking action to have the human experience be as exquisite as it possibly can be.

    E 26-Tracey Hulick

    E 26-Tracey Hulick

    My introduction to Tracey Hulick came as I sat with Spencer Newell, LIAS guest on Episode 24. We were comparing notes regarding early inspiration for endurance running. I recounted my inspiration leading up to running my first marathon in October of 2006. I had donated a kidney to my younger sister Amy in Chicago, October of 2005, the same week of the 2005 Chicago Marathon…Spencer stopped me and said, “dude you’ve gotta meet my girlfriend Tracey. She donated a kidney and has started an organization called “Kidney Donor Athlete…” And she is an endurance runner too. 



    Spencer gave me Tracey’s contact info and thus began what has become a dear connection and friendship with a stellar human. I am going to let Tracey share her story, her love and the passion that drives her to raise awareness for living organ donation through her organization, FaceBook and Instagram @Kidney Donor Athletes .



    https://kidneydonorathlete.org/



    May each of you find a passion that calls you, invites you and compels you to contribute to the world. Even if your world is your family, church, temple or synagog. For some of us like Tracey it may be a demographic that is disenfranchised, disempowered or suffering with disease.



    Being in service to something or someone greater than ourselves is the ‘juice’ of life itself.

    Episode 25 – Cylvia Hayes

    Episode 25 – Cylvia Hayes

    Cylvia had been an environmental consultant and founder of 3 E Consulting. She then became “First Lady” of the State of Oregon and long time partner of former Gov John Kitzhaber. Of course, she had reached a level in public life where anything and everything becomes open season for journalists and the media. In October of 2014 Cylvia received a call from a journalist that uncovered “her past”. I will let Cylvia share her story of her “fall from grace” and subsequent rise to become a powerful force for transformation and…Authenticity.



    This episode brings home the wisdom of “never quit…NO MATTER WHAT”. My conversation with Cylvia Hayes inspires me to remember that the perceived failures…aren’t…failures at all. NOT AT ALL!



    Be looking for her forthcoming book. Click here to view Cylvia’s TEDx Talk “Who Do You Think You Are, Really? TEDxBend. You can also find Cylvia on Facebook & Instagram.



    Cylvia is a powerful woman who walks in the world with a life that is “transformation lived” which means she may have a thing or two to share with us…and SHE DOES!!!



    Cylvia, thank you for taking time and gracing us with your story, your courage and your love. As always I remind us all to explore the life of what the Sufi Mystic referred to as “A Poet”. “A Poet is someone who can pour light into a spoon and lift it to nourish your beautiful, parched holy mouth.

    Episode 24 – Spencer Newell

    Episode 24 – Spencer Newell

    I got a call one day last summer from Craig Foster, a fellow ultra running buddy and brother in recovery saying “I just heard a guy by the name of Spencer Newell #spencernewell #appetiteforaddiction on the David Clarke Podcast and I think he lives pretty damned close to you.” I tracked down Spencer, who indeed lives in Bend, OR. I reached out via FB Messenger and we connected for this episode of ‘Light In A Spoon’.



    Spencer has since become a good friend and a man I respect the hell out of. 







    Spencer’s life is chronicled in his book, “Appetite For Addiction”. He speaks with courage and vulnerability about the wreckage of a past caught in the merciless grip of active alcoholism and addiction. However, the story continues to unfold. Spencer has risen out of the incomprehensible demoralization that comes, part and parcel with addiction to begin life as a professional triathlete, coach, personal trainer…and if I can have any influence, the author of a second book that covers the power and beauty of his ‘recovery’.



    Please welcome Spencer Newell. Spence, any chance you’d be willing to be a ‘regular’ on Light In A Spoon? I think we could create some real goodness and share it.



    On another note; we have just launched our first nutritional ‘Superfood’ product called ‘Spoonful Of Light’ Superfoods. This amazing formula of 36 fruits, vegetables and superfoods are blended to powerfully alkalize our body at a cellular level, boost our immune system, INCREASE energy and endurance and even fuel athlectic performance.

    Spencer, I want to thank you again for bringing ALL of you to this conversation. Keep it real and keep it moving my brother. I also want to thank the with Soul Social Media Agency team of Holly JustHolly + Tambi  Lane for handling getting these episodes T’d up and ‘live’. And as always thank you Jay Pinto of #JayPintoMusic for the theme song “We Breathe The Same Air”.



    Until next episode be at least curious and try on being a Poet. “A Poet is someone who can pour light into a spoon and then lift it to nourish your beautiful parched holy mouth.
