My profound breath-work session w/ Damian "Wim" Glynn [PART TWO]
Part 1 was the theory, now we're putting it into practice. I share my experience doing the breathwork session with high performance and mindset coach Damian Glynn, which included profound morphine-like pain relief, an out-of-body experience, followed by an extreme state of presence Damian calls the "flow-state".Then we do a few rounds on-air of the exact breathwork method Damian lead me through and the one he uses to train leaders and high performers to show up and get the best out of their mind and body.Watch the episode in full HD at:https://youtu.be/aXD-YFrJOJsFind out more about Damian Glynn and the Better Everyday Project at:https://www.bettereverydayproject.com/

The Healing Power of Love, Geometry & Altered States of Consciousness — Dr Steven Booth (Transpersonal Acupuncturist)
Now for something a little different... for this episode I encourage you to be curious and open minded and hold tight as it's going to be a fun and intriguing conversation.My guest in this episode is my friend and Doctor of Chinese Medicine Steven Booth — a transpersonal acupuncturist, researcher and author on the topic of sacred geometry. Now, I'm really new to this. And this is probably a really poor explanation, but sacred geometry is essentially the harmonious patterns that we find repeated in nature, and space and in our own bodies.I met Steven and his wife Tasj at a health retreat a few years ago, and was deeply impacted by their authenticity, attention and compassion in steering me through a difficult time in my life.Stephen has treated people with all kinds of traumas, both mental and physical, PTSD, illnesses, injuries and ailments. And he goes about it by shifting learned patterns in our minds, bodies and spirits that no longer serve us. And that actually cause a blockage to healing and repair. It's really a spiritual work that directly impacts the body. He uses a whole host of different healing modalities, including acupuncture, light body activation, breathwork, sound healing, and guided meditation to lead a patient to an altered state of consciousness and a place where he calls the heart space. That gives people the ability to see the negative patents and the courage to make positive and lasting change.TOPICS IN THIS EPISODE: - The mind-body-spirit connection and the illusion of separation- The importance of trust and rapport between patient and therapist- What is sacred geometry, energy work, light body activation and breath work- What is esoteric and transpersonal acupuncture- Coming into heart space through altered states of consciousness- How altered states help create lasting mental, emotional and physical healing- Patients meeting lost loved ones, aliens and "the big guy" during treatment- Current US trials with psilocybin mushrooms for treatment of PTSD, depression and end of life anxietyNow, If this stuff sounds or woowoo, to you, then yeah, I know it does to me as well. And Steven would gladly accept that it does as well. And even that the science on this stuff is not settled if it is ever settled on anything. But Stephen doesn't need you to buy into some sort of belief or new framework.In fact, on the contrary, he encourages you to dig deep into your own faith, worldview or belief system to find that foundation of love of compassion, and acceptance of self and others, which is the true source of healing and lasting change. Stephen is such a disarming and unassuming person, and I'm so glad to have him on the show to talk about the great things that he is doing to heal the "wounded" from the inside out.CHECK OUT STEPHEN ONLINE AT:https://www.drstevenbooth.com.au/https://sevenstarsacademy.com.au/FOLLOW ME ON YOUTUBE AND WATCH THE VIDEO EPISODE:https://youtu.be/Yj5VjmNLYxA

Meditation — The Power of Rest (Healing & Mindfulness Meditation)
Hey, welcome to the first guided meditation for the podcast. This is where you and I go to the deeper places, from learning and processing, to resting and being. Connecting with the deeper self, the spirit, in timeless present to recharge and to heal.I have no idea if this little 10 min thingy will mean anything to anyone (I'm keen to hear if it does or doesn't) but never-the-less I thoroughly enjoyed putting this together, pushing into the moment, expressing experience and deeper feels, capturing the Burleigh beach sounds with my little recorder and beautiful sun rise just on the iPhone, for this my first meditation “for the healing journey”. So right now try mute your inner critic, of yourself especially, but me too ideally. And when judgements, fears or distractions arise as they will, note them and allow them to be, without attaching yourself to them. This meditation is called The Power of Rest.Background ambient sound recorded at Burleigh Beach, Queensland, Australia.
