    How the loss of a loved one combined music & coaching | Featuring Eric Bauberger

    How the loss of a loved one combined music & coaching | Featuring Eric Bauberger

    In today’s episode I chat with Eric Bauberg, a Holistic Life Coach and Motivational Entertainer who works with people one-on-one as well as in groups through his workshops.

    Eric’s story is a sad yet fascinating one, where surrender plays a massive part in. If he did not learn to surrender, then the tragic death of his beloved sister could have had a different outcome. Yet, through being able to surrender he connected deeper with his sister and this enabled him to finally step up and into the person he is today.

    Listen to this incredible interview to gain insight into how to deal with a terrible loss of a loved one that turned into a journey where music and coaching come together and inspire others towards their greatest self.

    A bit about Eric’s work:

    In his one-on-one coaching, he guides self-aware individuals to tune their minds and their bodies, so that they could create more ease and flow as they move towards their greatest self.

    When Ben is hosting workshops, he tries to teach certain principles, certain tools, while telling his own story and infusing his own original music in there to really influence the energy, but also to really ground the message of what he is trying to say and where it has brought him in life.

    During chat we cover:

    · Eric’s life up until the moment that changed his life forever

    · What he calls the ‘gift of tragedy’

    · Why he felt he led a double-life

    · Moment of his sisters’ passing & what surrendering has to do with it

    · How music played a particularly big part in this tragic phase of his life

    · The message he now shares with others around spirituality & music

    · Examples of how he moved from ‘fear to fuel’ as a musician

    Why you don't need to have it all figured out in your 20s with Philippa Robinson

    Why you don't need to have it all figured out in your 20s with Philippa Robinson

    On this episode of the Living on the B Side podcast I welcome Philippa to the microphone.
    Philippa is a proud Northerner, who studied law at university, and she spent most of her career exploring the UK, subconsciously seeking "home". She settled in the beautiful city of Bristol where she now lives with her husband, two teenage sons and Bob the dog.
    During her own personal transformation, through healing childhood trauma and learning to love and live for herself, she arrived at her soul mission to guide people to be the truest versions of themselves because she believes that is the greatest gift we can give ourselves.
    She proudly supports Nacoa (the National Association for Children of Alcoholics). Discovering a joy for writing, wild-swimming and even running (slowly) in mid-life has been a fabulous surprise.
    Philippa has a podcast (Meeting of Minds) and is a certified coach. Her memoir, I See, Me, was released on 30th November 2021 and is available in paperback and on kindle at Amazon.

    During our time together we chat about:
    · Why she created a music playlist about her life story
    · Her take on the messages we receive around who we should be or shouldn't be
    · When she realised she needed external help and seek therapy
    · How younger people can use music to stay true to themselves
    · Why one song can help you potentially figure out how you are feeling
    · Her message to younger people in the world & how music is connected to that

A unique and refreshing podcast

I am an author that has been on dozens of podcasts. I was invited into a conversation with B as a potential guest and so I listened to this show. This show is refreshing. The music angle and the host’s perspective on life and music are inspiring and enlightening. This is a great podcast to listen to.
