    Spiritually Loose, with Susan Pearse

    Spiritually Loose, with Susan Pearse

    Susan Pearse is a three times best selling author, founder of Mind Gardener and business expert who is passionate about motivating people to trust their intuition, think differently, lead consciously, and let life guide them to fulfilment.
    Susan's life purpose hasn’t always been clear. Her wake-up call came in the form of a quarter-life crisis, which sent her on the first of many worldwide searches for answers. A shopping trip to New York led to a chance meeting with His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, and the first hint of her life’s purpose. She’s explored everything from quantum physics and neuroscience, to philosophy and eastern traditions, and even qualified as a kundalini yoga teacher.
    ‘Spiritually Loose’, released in August 2022, is Susan’s fourth book and tells the story of this search and exploration. Initial reviews have described it as “raw, honest and ground breaking.”
    In this conversation, Susan and I discussed:
    The story behind the title ‘Spiritually Loose’ and how it came to Susan well before the book was writtenHow darkness is relevant to our search for light, and the importance of sitting with our emotionsMaking peace with our bodies and how being ‘in our bodies’ fits in with spiritual practicesBringing an energy of joy to our work to our business and how that impacts success more than number of hours workedThe simple ways Susan looks after herself and finds joy,And the importance of 80s music.To buy Susan's book, Spiritually Loose, you can access via her website, Amazon, Booktopia and all good bookstores.
    You can connect with Susan through her website: www.susanpearse.com, as well as on Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.

    The Expansion of Motherhood, with Marta Bukowska

    The Expansion of Motherhood, with Marta Bukowska

    As an almost-20 year old, Marta Bukowska left her homeland of Poland for a "short" visit to see a friend in the US, seeking freedom and adventure, and quickly fell in love with the bustling city of NY (and a man). 
    20 something years later, she still lives in New York with her second husband and two boys. With her eldest son now finished high school, she’s started reigniting her dream of adventures in Costa Rica.

    In this conversation, Marta and I discussed her two different experiences of motherhood raising sons who are 12 years apart and surrendering into the expansion of motherhood. We also discussed how Marta was able to follow the Universe nudges from being in chaos to leading a purpose-driven life and the first steps she took.

    Marta is a certified wellness and life coach and founder of the multi-modality coaching practice, Mind Body and Purpose. She supports her clients through principles of mindset, emotional intelligence, embodiment, holistic nutrition, and movement to create a vibrant life on their terms.

    You can connect with Marta through her website - Mind Body Purpose, as well as Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn.
