A Prickly Time
How do we reach across the divide in which we find ourselves? What happened to "we are all in this together?" Was that all lip service only to now move into total discord? If we are to rally and find a way forward on this beautiful planet, we need to dive in and reach out.

It’s Time To Focus On Your Soul Work
Have you been spending time wondering what your purpose in life is? What you are here to do? If so, then this episode of Courage In Our Time is just for you.In this episode I discuss:- The importance of quiet, alone time as an introvert- The challenge of finding the courage to take that time for yourself- Seeing sensitivity as a strength, not a weakness- Recognizing the impact that the disruptions in your life and the world may be having on you- The value of high-level visioning- The importance of soul time and how it can help you work through the negative ‘dark horse’ type monologue in your head that tries to bring you down- Learning how to use your life energy on things that feed your soul- How to make decisions, take action on things today that will get you closer to your long-term vision- How it’s time for the seekers and sensitive ones (just like you!) to heal the world with the work they were brought here to doIf you have been experiencing a sense of overstimulation or overwhelm, while also feeling a deep longing to do the work that you are meant to do, I hope that this podcast ignites a flame in you. Because the world needs our work as much as we need it right now.I would love to hear from you if there are any particular insights from this podcast that help you move forward toward your vision.

Longing for Home
What is bliss? Is it the absence of sorrow, anguish or grief? No, it contains those and joy. It is the moment where we stop compartmentalizing and acting as silos and we slip back into the ocean of belonging.

Crossing the River of Grief
Humans are driving me crazy. Even at the (hopefully) end of a pandemic, we are still consuming, developing and stepping on others. What will it take for us to come to a point of reckoning? Can we see this river of grief that we have created through decimation of nature, oppression of Indigenous people and generally bad behaviour and be courageous enough to swim? It is time.

I Want To See You
Uncertainty... There is nothing but uncertainty in today's world. What if this is actually a gift? What if we have been given this time in order to go within and find our greatest inner beauty and strength, our dharma? Can you pause in your frenetic behaviour and give up control to your soul?

Managing The Uncontrollable is Women's Superpower
This is the first in a series of podcasts reflecting on women's experiences in a full year of waves of lockdown. Women, traditionally the ones that hold the community together, may be affected differently when cut off from their friends and acquaintances. In this session, 3 friends gather -- two that are active in theatre and the arts and me, the Yoga girl. My hope is that these podcasts will make you feel less isolated, more compassionate toward yourself and even maybe a little more sane.

Despair and Empowerment
What to do with this nagging feeling of despair as we remain in the dance of a pandemic, the reality of the effects of climate change and a sense of utter powerlessness? We must sit together in the darkened room and listen, undefended, vulnerable and open. We must summon the courage to hear the hard and still stay. Only then will we find the power with and power from within that will lead us into the light.

The Birth Canal
In this first episode of a new season, the fatigue of disruption is sitting on top of us. But, are we in the exact right place? Is this actually exactly what we need to evolve, transform and heal? I think so.

I'll See You There
The apocalypse is easy, everything just happens for us, we don't even need to do our work! How about we grow up now and realize that the better work is to take care of ourselves and do our work. We are stewards of this part of our earth (our selves) and so we must take care, evolve and transform. This is our dharma.

What gifts do you have in this lifetime? Have you opened them or do you keep them locked away for fear of hubris and shame? How might you transcend the pattern of hiding and move into one of celebrating your skills, your purpose, your gifts? Who needs to get out of the way?

Anything is Possible, Nothing is Certain
If we allow ourselves time and space to let our minds wander, we will be able to create the world that we dream to live in. If the world were everything you dream it to be, what would it look like? The roof has blown off and the cage door is open... What will you create?

It's Time To Listen
I woke up with Vertigo and I know it is time to stop and really sink in instead of running for solutions and bandaids. We cannot build a right and just new reality if we don't stop and sink into this reality. We need to see what wasn't/isn't working so we stop investing in it. We can only do this when we are brave enough to stop and listen to our council of elders, sages and wise ones within.

Don't Cancel Me Out
In this climate of cancel culture, is there room for yes, and? Can we find ways to learn that we all have failings and flaws as opposed to making some people super heroes and others villains? Is there a way to become vulnerable enough to sit in beginner's mind and endlessly learn from each other as opposed to endlessly labeling one as wrong and the other as right? I can only hope.

As a species, we are in a massive state of transformation, relentlessly thrust inwards to look at our shadow side. How can we hold ourselves in this time when we can see nothing past the tip of our nose? What will be when we emerge out of this cocoon and become what we were born to become? Will we stop eating empty calories? Will we stop holding the water ski rope after long ago falling and continually swallowing water? *** If you appreciate these podcasts and are able to contribute, please consider contributing to: http://fnd.us/c1dex4?ref=sh_18rxT0
