The outer world is continuously vying for your attention, luring you under its control. It can cause you to lose sight of your value, your importance, and your purpose. At times you need others to remember and remind you. These reminders often come from the most unexpected places. To recognize them requires your open heart and mind. Connection, feeling seen and understood, loved, and needed are imperative in order to experience wholeness.

Through this podcast, it is my pleasure to facilitate unconditional love for one, perhaps misunderstood, human being to another. Beginning with love for the self you can then become a wellspring for the world. The world needs you.

    THE BOOK JEWEL

    THE BOOK JEWEL

    Owner, Karen Dial, and manager, Sean Moor have truly brought a jewel to Southern Calfornia with the opening of the bookstore, "The Book Jewel." In a time when so much is unfamiliar and so much of what Humankind loves has been held at bay, Karen and Sean had the consciousness to open an amazing bookstore in the midst of a pandemic. The success of this store and the diverse outreach speaks volumes about their integrity and character. I applaud them and wish them continued success.

    EMPATHY IS MY SUPERPOWER

    EMPATHY IS MY SUPERPOWER

    Joy Assent’s story is compelling.

    She was raised by parents who were addicted to crack cocaine. At a young age, she was robbed at gunpoint and later fell victim to a severe head injury. Yet, she thrives; she loves; she sees through the eyes of the other. Joy has lived and continues to live through her open heart bringing the gift of empathy. That open-hearted empathy is her superpower.

    Six years in the army which moved her into a different way of living and now a member of an HR team, Joy refers to herself as a “Purveyor of Positive People.” She can only be that because she is beyond positive. She lives from her heart space. We have much to learn from Joy Assent.

    THE MAGIC OF DIANNE REEVES

    THE MAGIC OF DIANNE REEVES

    If you know anything about Dianne Reeves, if you’ve heard her sing, the power in her voice, you’re aware that there’s something extraordinary happening there. Her voice touches the soul. Her presence is felt the moment she walks into a room.

    I was curious to understand the origin of her depth. I wanted to understand what she's leaned on, her superpower, that has allowed her to shine so brightly through this racist society and come out unscathed.

    We had a fun time speaking of what I refer to as her magic.

    Tune in and enjoy my conversation with the amazing Dianne Reeves.

    You might just hear something that moves you into a deeper relationship with yourself.
