Life on Purpose
About This Show
How do you live your life more deliberately? What can you do to bring more meaning and purpose into your life? How does that affect your health, happiness, and well-being? If you're asking those questions, you're in the right place! http://www.lifeonpurposeshow.com
Life on Purpose presents in-depth conversations with entrepreneurs, creatives, seekers, and thought leaders from around the world. In each episode, we'll discuss how those guests are being purposeful with various aspects as their lives- whether in their daily habits, work and running a business, relationships, health, travel, money, or just how they move through their day. My goal is to offer inspiration and concrete examples that listeners can apply to their own lives.
Life on Purpose, which was featured in iTunes' New & Noteworthy listings in January/February 2015, is the latest creation from Gregory Berg, producer/host of the acclaimed Radio Enso, which aired nearly 150 in-depth conversations from 2011-2014 and also has a five-star rating on iTunes.
Through the years, Greg had been fortunate enough to interview an amazing array of inspirational people whose life work revolves around helping others answer those very questions — creatives, academics, and visionaries like Brene Brown, Dr. Bernie Siegel, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jennifer Louden, Jonathan Fields, Danielle LaPorte, Chris Guillebeau, Susan Piver, Chris Brogan and MANY more.

Linda holds degrees in Eastern and Western Psychology, and has post-graduate training in theology and Sanskrit. She is the award-winning author of eight books on spirituality including Daughters of the Goddess: The Women Saints of India, and The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Hinduism. Linda joined me for an enlightening chat about her new book Lost Masters: Rediscovering The Mysticism of the Ancient Greek Philosophers, in which she offers a fascinating opportunity to reacquaint ourselves with the ancient Greek masters, revealing a side of Western philosophy that has been almost completely ignored by traditional academia. "Ashrams in Europe twenty-five hundred years ago? Greek philosophers studying in India? Meditation classes in ancient Rome? It sounds unbelievable, but it’s historically true. Alexander the Great had an Indian guru. Pythagoras encouraged their students to meditate. Apollonius, the most famous Western sage of the first century c.e., visited both India and Egypt." About Linda Johnsen: I'm a writer who shuttles back and forth between two universes: the modern Western world and India!
