    #58 Thriving with Purpose (with Ashley Munday)

    Ashley Munday is the director of Thrive by SweetRush. SweetRush Inc. is a global training and development firm where Ashley leads the Thrive team of culture and leadership consultants. She leads an expert team of culture and leadership consultants. She and her amazing team help guide clients to create human-centered cultures where authentic purpose becomes the beating heart of whatever else that organization does in the world.

    As you'll hear in this conversation, Ashley is a deeply dynamic, life-loving person who has spent her life's work deepening into the questions of what it means to thrive in the world, and how purpose can help serve as an anchor for our thriving.

    She stands for the power of asking the questions that most of us simply aren't given permission - or the invitation - to ask. For the deep, foundational relevance of exploring purpose and meaning in a world often more concerned with fitting in. For the beauty of music, arts, and culture to reframe our everyday experience. Above all, for the power of falling in love with life.

    #57 Pleasure and Power (with Hana Ramat)

    #57 Pleasure and Power (with Hana Ramat)

    Hana Ramat has a fascinating background in psychology, psychotherapy, mindfulness, and human development. Over the past 10+ years, she's worked with folks of all ages and backgrounds; from adults with severe and persistent mental illness at Bellevue Hospital in New York to children at Albert Einstein's College of Medicine’s early childhood center, and many in between.

    Most recently, she’s shifted her attention to work with women who are struggling through life and are navigating a journey to self-actualization. She helps them reckon with and move through the unique challenges that women face as they navigate a patriarchal culture that prizes dominance, relentless competition, and emotional repression.

    At the root of her work is the invitation for women (and, really, for all of us) to step into their bodies and into the pleasure and power that comes with being alive, without shame. The pleasure of love, romance, and sex. The power of being a leader and claiming space in the world. The way pleasure and power work together to allow for healing, wholeness, and resilient inner strength.

    If you care at all about a world where women thrive, and a world where all of us - men, women, and everyone else along the gender spectrum - have access to more of the innate feminine energy and the capacities and sensitivities that come with that, then this conversation is for you.

    #56 Future Meets Present (with Amer Jandali)

    #56 Future Meets Present (with Amer Jandali)

    My guest today is Amer Jandali, an energizing, creative human being who brings together a variety of different disciplines to imagine a world where a true human future is possible. A world in which we have not only tackled the challenge of climate change, but actually built a beautiful, more inclusive, more energizing - both metaphorically, but literally in the sense of where we get our energy, our fuel, our food - world where everyone can thrive.

    He's the founder of a new social design firm called Future Meets Present, and they're doing incredible work to help us see what's possible on the other side of the climate crisis that we're facing right now. He brings a natural optimism and enthusiasm to these questions of existence, survival, and thriving, and he's also just a wonderfully heartfelt human being who has dedicated his life to bring people together.

    #55 Meta-Leadership (with Dr. Jeffrey Hull)

    #55 Meta-Leadership (with Dr. Jeffrey Hull)

    Dr. Jeffrey Hull has been something of a “mentor at-a-distance” for me. His book, Flex: The Art and Science of Leadership in a Changing World, provided a framework for leadership that I had an intuitive sense for but didn’t quite know how to describe. Reading his book was an ‘a-ha!’ moment for me. I hadn't heard anyone else put into words in the way that he did. So having him on the show and exploring with him first-hand was a real privilege.

    His book explores the distinction between alpha leadership and beta leadership. Beta leadership is a way of leading that allows for more flexibility, inclusivity, warmth, and perspective-taking. Jeff compels leaders who are limited by an ‘alpha-only’ approach to take a wider stance, to develop the emotional and intellectual agility to either lead from beta, or step back so that beta leaders can step forward when they’re most needed.

    However, even the binary between alpha and beta is a kind of constraint. Jeff named that binary limitation in our conversation, and we started to dive more deeply into the question of what it is to be a meta leader. A meta leader is someone who is neither alpha nor beta. Someone who draws from all of the different perspectives available so that they can show up in a way that is in service of the greatest good.

    If you care at all about leadership, human development, about what it is to meet the current moment with agility, grace, new perspectives, and a deeper sense of what's possible for our collective future, then this conversation is for you.

    #54 Joining Team Courage (with Brooke Lavelle)

    #54 Joining Team Courage (with Brooke Lavelle)

    Brooke Lavelle is the co-founder and president of the Courage of Care Coalition, a nonprofit that helps people from across cultures, backgrounds, and identities work together at the intersection of compassionate inquiry, self-discovery, mindfulness, and spirituality.
    Our conversation today dives into the question of what it is for us to be together, not in spite of our differences, but rather, as a direct extension of and integration of our differences. Coming together in a way that allows each of us to be who we uniquely are, while also being in true community with other people who have their own story, journey, and identities.

    #53 The Journey Towards Collective Healing (with Liz Moyer Benferhat)

    #53 The Journey Towards Collective Healing (with Liz Moyer Benferhat)

    Liz Moyer Benferhat is a healer with a big question and a big dream: How do we heal ourselves collectively in the face of the damage and change that our entire planet is facing as our climate and culture shifts? How do we take care of each other and care for the world that we are a part of? Her dream is that we find a way to answer those questions through our individual journeys of healing, which can become our collective journey.

    Liz draws from an incredibly rich and deep set of practices and disciplines. She has a background in systems design, applied research, and international sustainable development. She also has deep lived experience facilitating community-based approaches to emotional healing and relational consciousness. From psychology to spirituality to the human body, Liz brings together all of these elements to create spaces where people can come together, grieve for what they've lost, and find a way forward in the face of all that we still have to reckon with.

    This conversation is a beautiful inquiry into what collective healing is. You'll hear us working with that edge because it's something that has never been done on a global scale before and that's how big Liz's dream is.
