Now that I am two weeks into the podcast and finally have a bit of a stride (well more like when you are running too fast for your feet and you are doing everything in your power to not fall down… that’s really more like it), I thought I would get back to this blog.
Going forward I will highlight the upcoming week’s podcast – some behind the scenes stories that you won’t hear on the podcast, and my takeaways from the interviews. I would love to hear yours as well. Please let me know your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, or email, as well as any guest suggestions that you have!
Up to this point, I have had the chance to chat with Cole Hatter on making money with a purpose so you can have the ability to contribute in a significant way; Erica Black on what it takes to believe you are worthy of a great life; Wesley Chapman on making a tremendous difference with struggling youth and mental illness; And Bob McIntosh on getting out of your way, “Being done is better than trying to be perfect”. All amazing guests and are each inspirational in their own way. They challenge us to think about how we show up and the things we can do to up our game today. On the website www.thegamechangerpodcast.com you can read more detail about each interview as well as their contact information if you would like to reach out them directly.
In the upcoming episode, Monday October 19th, I have the great honor of chatting with a mentor of mine Richard Miller, PhD. He is the founder of iRest a Yoga Nidra/guided meditation practice that he has developed. He has a long and impressive resume, in fact, which you will hear more about on the show. I have spent time with him at various trainings and retreats over the last two years all over the U.S. As I said in the intro to the show, he doesn’t just walk the talk, he IS the talk. He is the most unflappable person I have ever met, and I have tried to flap him, I can assure you. (Is that really even a thing? Well, you get what I mean.) If you know of anyone struggling with PTSD, regardless of its origin – from childhood abuse, a victim of violent crime, or a military veteran… you don’t want to miss this show. iRest is now widely used in VA centers across the U.S., homeless shelters, schools and addiction centers, but certainly isn’t limited to that. He is now applying this work to people with chronic pain and those struggling with sleep disorders. In addition to of all of this, the truth is his work helps all of us to become better connected to our true self, our true nature, and in learning to accept ourselves as we are right now – rather than what we “someday” hope to become. Richard truly is that friend we all need who accepts us for who we are without judgment or an agenda. I hope you have the chance to listen to the conversation, as I put his work second to none when it comes to having a better relationship with yourself, and in turn everyone around you.
I am now at the Thrive conference – an event filled to the brim with Game Changers. If you have heard any of my shows to date, you have heard me reference it a lot! I appreciate all of you who have taken the time to leave a review and who have subscribed on iTunes. It means a great deal to me and I appreciate it more than words can say.
With Heartfelt Gratitude,
