Engaging, informative and refreshingly practical!

The podcast to listen to if you’re interested in gaining practical, everyday tools to help you live a more conscious, thoughtful and joyous life :)

I end each episode having learned something new (and useful!), eager (and prepared!) to attempt that practice in my daily routine.

Nick knocks it out of the park

Just like everything else he does. These episodes have been a great way for me to learn new things about my mind while quarantined

Fascinating and Fun

The podcast on hypnosis was surprisingly interesting and informative. New podcasts can be a hit or miss, but Nick seems to bring a good balance of quality recording plus helpful tools in understanding mental health. I look forward to hearing more from him in the future.
