Moving Beyond the Weight Loss Mentality
Don’t Lose Weight; Release It. Cathy Mott, from in Life AWARENESS, joins me to talk about the difference between a “proactive” and a “reactive” mindset, as it relates to weight release. This is NOT a show about goal-setting—this is a different way of relating to our bodies, food, and exercise. If you struggle with weight-related issues, you won’t want to miss this episode of It’s Not a Problem, It’s a Pattern.

Weight Release Community and Consciousness
For the past five years, I have drawn in an amazing community to support Weight Release. Weight Release is more than the books I have written and the process I have created. Weight Release is my own practice and perspective that has helped me release physical weight (around 70 pounds, five years ago) and maintain a healthy weight and healthy patterns every day. Weight Release extends well beyond physical weight—what I, and those who have joined me in this process, have released is the burden of patterns (thoughts, beliefs, behaviors, and perceptions) that bind us to unhealthy habits and the “small story” of who we are and what we are “up to” on this planet. On this episode, I will be joined by my dear friend and colleague, Kimberley Kaase. Kim is a former Weight Release client, who is now a Weight Release Coach and mentor. We drew some important correlations between our “Collaboration” work and the process of building a “Weight Release Community” to support your amazing potential and ultimate birthright. Whether you struggle with physical weight and unhealthy eating patterns, or not, this program will offer you a powerful way of looking at your life.

Abundance Comes When We Learn to Share
Collaboration is a NEW paradigm in human evolution. It is not as if we have never collaborated before—BUT what we are talking about on the show is a new “operating system”—a new orientation toward life. We talk about an expanding consciousness that starts with subtle collaboration opportunities and expands to larger and larger possibilities. There IS enough to go around—you don’t need to hoard (you aren’t in a fight with imaginary competitors). Learn to share and watch your world open up with possibility. Kim Kaase is my guest cohost, again, as we continue to explore “Collaboration 2.0: A New Human Operating System.”

In the wake of the Boston Marathon Bombing, Freeman talks about how we respond to external incidents. We must feel our feelings deeply enough and with a consciousness that allows us to emerge with wisdom rather than react quickly to the impulse that is triggered.

Awakening Man Series, Part 3: Competitive Patterns With Jeff Brown and Freeman Michaels
Unhealthy competitive patterns hold us hostage. They promote a VERY small story; they diminish our life force energy, undermine our contribution, and inhibit our potential. Both Freeman and Jeff get caught in them often. Our cohosts are joined in this discussion by callers Dalkoiya and Elizabeth—this is a wonderful conversation.

New Values Mean a New Way of Relating Between Men and Women
Jeff Brown joins Freeman, along with special guest Jessica Bahr and caller Gail, for this episode of the Awakening Man series. The question that brought about this powerful conversation was: “In the 21st century women don’t need men to provide for them—what value, besides provider, can men offer to women that will make them attractive as mates?”

Come to Your Senses, Man
Today’s show is about men reclaiming their senses. Most of us desensitized as a form of self-protection. As boys, we learn to cut off our feelings and numb our senses in order to survive systemic chauvinism. Resensitizing is about self-acceptance, self-expression, and reclaiming our sensitivity and our senses.

Playing Into a Projection
Do you ever find yourself playing into someone’s projection? It is so easy to do—in fact, it usually takes tremendous conscious awareness to respond appropriately when someone is running a story about you. This is the topic of today's episode of It's Not a Problem; It's a Pattern.

Don't Make It About the Circumstances
If we treat circumstances as a reflection of patterning and if we are willing to really own what is being expressed in the reoccurring challenges of our lives, we can begin to shift our experience profoundly. But when we keep insisting that our happiness is circumstance-dependent and that the circumstances are the cause of our unhappiness, we are not only missing a profound opportunity, we are destined to generate more circumstances to reflect the beliefs and agreements that spawned the crappy circumstances in the first place. I know this is hard—it is hard for me too. I am not candy-coating challenges and slapping an affirmation on top of layers of deeply held, self-perpetuating beliefs and agreements—there is a process however that allows us to peel back the layers in service to a held intent. The process starts with a generative and sustainable vision along with the ability to see your situation clearly. I can help with that. If you feel overwhelmed by circumstances in your life and you want to gain a more empowered perspective, perhaps today's show can help. It starts with being able to see your situation in a constructive and productive manner—aiming your life toward a self-chosen destiny.

The Story We Choose to Support
In this episode, we discuss stories. Stories are how we make sense of things. Patterns are held in place by stories—we call them "story lines." When we start to develop the perspective that our lives organize around patterns, we recognize the impact of certain stories.
