    The Transformative Power of Holding Space with Matt Kahn • 243

    The Transformative Power of Holding Space with Matt Kahn • 243

    We will learn:


    How to engage different levels of listening.
    How to validate people in conversation. 
    Why we get pushed away when someone fights their pain. 

    Do you ever have moments where you just don’t feel understood?Why is it that some conversations feel disconnected while others feel like you’re completely wrapped in them? I think it has to do with the space that someone holds for you. It’s probably one of the greatest gifts we can give to someone else. And it’s also one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves.When you hold space for yourself, you give yourself the awareness and the time and the intention to allow your own energy to move. You need space to transform.So today we’re going to learn how to hold space for ourselves and others.Our guest is Matt Kahn. He is a spiritual teacher, speaker, author and highly attuned empathic healer. Matt wrote the highly acclaimed books “Whatever Arises, Love That", "Everything Is Here to Help You”, and “The Universe Always Has a Plan".His newest book is “All For Love: The Transformative Power of Holding Space.” He has 20+million YouTube channel views where people are finding relief from the challenges of daily life through his heart-centered messages.Links from the episode:

    Indigenous Wisdom for Finding Your Inner Medicine with Asha Frost • X94

    Indigenous Wisdom for Finding Your Inner Medicine with Asha Frost • X94

    We will learn:


    How to call upon your animal spirits.
    How legends and stories can connect us with our nature.
    Why we’ve lost the sacred and how to bring it back.

    We tend to think of medicine as pharmaceuticals. In reality, medicine has been practiced since prehistoric times and it was more like an art form of knowledge and skill. 

    But what if we expand our view of medicine even further?

    What if we chose to see that everything is medicine? Everything in life is helping us to grow, evolve and expand in love. Everything is leading to our evolution. Our most difficult experiences are actually a gift.

    So today we’re talking about how you can recognize the gift of these experiences and how to move into a different state of being.

    Our guest is Asha Frost. She is an Indigenous Medicine Woman and a member of the Chippewas of Nawash First Nation. She is the best-selling author of "You are the Medicine", and has guided thousands of people through profound and lasting transformation.

    The Quiet Power of Being Humble with Daryl Van Tongeren • 242

    The Quiet Power of Being Humble with Daryl Van Tongeren • 242

    We will learn:


    The common barriers that make it hard for us to look at ourselves in an unbiased way. 
    How to ask for feedback and respond non-defensively. 
    How to embody humble ambition. 

    Whatever happened to humility? 

    Everyone in the world seems to have their personal brand: this is who I am and what I’ve done and how I look and everyone should follow me.

    The algorithm feeds our narcissism and as we’ve heard in several recent episodes, we’re literally living in a narcissism epidemic.

    So if society is built to reward narcissistic behavior, how do we consciously choose to balance out?

    Today we’re talking about how and why to be humble. 

    Our guest is Daryl Van Tongeren. He says that in its true sense, humbleness is the happy medium between self-denial and self-obsession: It grants the holder an accurate view of reality. By seeing where we have room to improve, we can grow. By admitting our doubts, we can learn. And by acknowledging our own worldview as one among many, we can truly connect with others despite our differences.

    How Debate Teaches Us to Listen and Be Heard with Bo Seo • X93

    How Debate Teaches Us to Listen and Be Heard with Bo Seo • X93

    We will learn:


    How we screw ourselves in free-flowing arguments. 
    How to break through deadlocked conversations. 
    How to bring in empathy in times of disagreement. 

    Do you shy away from arguments because it’s just not worth it? Or do you run toward them, get nowhere and then feel like crap wishing you hadn’t?

    What I’ve found is that so many topics have so much emotion behind them, or dare I say programming, that both sides become blinded by their talking points and have stopped being able to see outside of them.

    So how do we get to a place where we respectfully converse? A place where we can come together and shave off the extremities in both of our views and meet somewhere in the middle?

    That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Bo Seo. He is a two-time world champion debater and a former coach of the Australian national debating team and the Harvard College Debating Union. He is one of the most recognized figures in the global debate community and is now the author of Good Arguments: How Debate Teaches Us to Listen and Be Heard.

    Five Deliberate Choices to Realize Fulfillment and Joy with Amy Wong • 241

    Five Deliberate Choices to Realize Fulfillment and Joy with Amy Wong • 241

    We will learn:


    How we self-impose our suffering. 
    How to choose “feeling it out” over “figuring out out”. 
    A process called “painting forward” that helps you integrate new choices. 

    Did you know that we make an average of 35000 choices per day? Look back at yesterday. How many of those choices were you actually aware of as you were making them?

    The thing about those subconscious decisions is, we have more control over them than we think we do.

    So today we’re going to talk about five deliberate choices to help you realize fulfillment and joy in your life.

    Our guest is Amy Wong. She is the founder of Always On Purpose®. She is an executive leadership coach, author, speaker, and facilitator working with organizations like Airbnb, Salesforce, Roku, LinkedIn, Facebook, and more.

    Grief Rituals for Finding Hope and Healing with Amanda Held Opelt • X92

    Grief Rituals for Finding Hope and Healing with Amanda Held Opelt • X92

    We will learn:


    The power of Irish keening for releasing emotions. 
    How to deal with fear around loss. 
    How to hold presence for grief, whether for yourself or a loved one. 

    There’s a huge spectrum for how people deal with grief. But it’s one of those things that I feel like we need a handbook for and we just don’t have one.

    We used to gather around to support one another for all major life events. We had collective rituals that helped us feel connected. That gave space to the grieving. That kept life moving when the griever couldn’t yet handle the little things.

    So what would that look like today, in the modern world? Today we’re going to explore some of the most helpful grief rituals that are worth bringing back.

    Our guest is Amanda Held Opelt. She is an author, speaker, and songwriter. She has spent the last 15 years as a social worker and humanitarian aid worker. And she writes about grief and creativity, and believes in the power of community, ritual, and shared stories to heal even our deepest wounds.

Such an amazing gift to the world

This podcast has become one of the most cherished parts of my week! As a parent, and small business owner making a huge career change, I can relate with so many of the experiences that Melissa shares with her listeners. The passion she brings to the conversations with her guests is such a refreshing approach to this format. She is both candid and vulnerable about her personal life while adding insightful advice along the way. I’m so glad I found this positive light in such a chaotic world. The more I listen, the more I look forward to each new episode.

My first heartbreak

I am 37 years old, and I am experiencing my first heartbreak. I have been the one to leave my past relationships and, until now, I have not known the true pain of having my heart broken. The pain is unlike any other that I have ever felt, and I honestly have not felt capable of surviving it until now. I am learning so much about myself, how to love myself, how to hold myself accountable, and most of all, that I am not alone. Thank you so much for your podcast.
