Glenn Younger - Connecting with Her Divine Soul (interview)
Glenn had been on a spiritual path for a long time. She started meditating in college with her roommate. She studied with amazing teachers, learning to trust her intuition more and more. She found herself letting go over and over again. She let go of control and listened more to her inner guidance. She let go of her fears and limitations. During one particular meditation, she let go of everything and met her Divine Soul. It had a profound effect on her inner and outer life. Inwardly, she experienced a deep love and connection beyond anything she had known before. Outwardly, she travelled the world and became a spiritual teacher. Listen to Glenn’s story of what this process has been like for her, what shifted because of that connection to her Divine Soul, and how she is now helping other people connect to their Divine Souls.

Toni Fraser Brennand - Meditation Before, During and After Pregnancy (interview)
Toni just kind of fell into meditating. Her husband had learned to meditate and his teacher offered to teach Toni, too. The benefits were fast, clear and almost too good to be true.

And when she got pregnant, meditation became a natural support both for her and her baby. Toni now teaches this meditation technique to pregnant women. It helps them bond with their baby during pregnancy. It can be used during labor and delivery. Even more, it provides a valuable aid to adjusting to life as a new parent.

Nicole Liloia - Exploring the Many Forms of Journaling (interview)
Nicole Liloia was given a beautiful travel journal just before a two month trip to Venezuela. She had just quit a stressful job, and it gave her a chance to step back and reassess her life. She didn’t continue journaling at home, but picked up the habit again a few years later. She started with simple things - tracking new habits she wanted to develop and noticing meaningful moments in her day. Journaling helped her keep to her new habits, and made her more aware of all the good things in her life. She developed a daily writing habit, and continued to explore different possibilities for her journaling. Sometimes she came up with ideas she wanted to share in her business. Sometimes she wrote mantras over and over again. Sometimes she used journaling prompts to dive deeper and see aspects of her life she had been avoiding. Listen to Nicole’s story of all the ways she has explored journaling, the many benefits she has seen from her practice, and her best advice to start a journaling practice of your own.

Alex Mill - From Zen Monk to Zen Life Coach (interview)
Alex followed his girlfriend and her friend into a new age bookstore (someplace he wouldn’t normally be caught dead in). He felt called to pick up a book on Zen Buddhism and start reading. He was amazed. The author was talking about all the things he was dealing with in his life. He thought he had it all (the job, the apartment, the girlfriend), but he was still unhappy. He knew he needed more of this information, so he started to study and meditate. Eventually he entered a Zen monastery. He settled into the routine there, meditating, studying and running retreats with the other monks. After nearly 14 years, he felt pulled to leave the monastery and start a business so he could share what he had learned with a larger audience. Listen to Alex’s story of how he became a monk, what he learned from the experience and how he is sharing that wisdom through his Zen life coaching business.

Amelia Aeon Karris - Spiritual Teacher and Entrepreneur (interview)
Amelía was a busy, successful entrepreneur when she met a couple from Japan during a business event.

After 10 years, she experienced a big breakthrough. She became clear that she wanted to share more of what she had learned and continued to discover.

Lizzy Hurwitz - Building Courage with Tibetan Buddhist Meditation (interview)
When Lizzy’s brother-in-law was diagnosed with a terminal illness, it turned the family upside down. They had to learn how to care for him during his 12 year illness and ultimate death. They also had to learn how to take care of themselves with all these new and unexpected responsibilities. At that point, Lizzy had already been meditating for 25 years. She had teachers she loved and respected, but something was still missing for her. She had yet to find a practice where she could freely share all aspects of herself. She connected with a Tibetan Buddhist lama. He had been born in Tibet in 1939, and studied with many of the teachers who tutored the current Dalai Lama. He was funny and open, and he helped her deepen and broaden her meditative practices. Listen to Lizzy’s story of what it had been like to study with this lama for the last 22 years and how the practices she does have helped her find the courage to work with people facing death and their caregivers.

Peggy Freeh - A Passion for Daily Practice (interview)
Peggy had been a stay at home mom for 9 years. She was at a breaking point, focusing all her time and energy on her kids and none on herself. She signed up for a life coach training program, and threw herself their recommended daily practice to notice and dissolve her painful thoughts. But after a year, she realized that it wasn’t very effective for her. Even though she learned the technique and could use it effectively with other people, it wasn’t causing many shifts in her life. So she tried another practice - yoga. This was a completely different experience. She felt genuinely inspired to do this practice. She felt the benefits right away and continued to feel them as she practiced more. She was so inspired that she went on to create this podcast to find out how other people create their own transformative daily practices they love.

Patsie Smith - Embracing Many Forms of Meditation (interview)
At the age of 20, Patsie was so depressed, she took an overdose of painkillers. She ended up in the hospital, floating in and out of conscious. During that time, she connected with something that astonished her - a profound sense of total peace and love, beyond thought. After she left the hospital, that peace was only a memory, so she started to explore meditation to find her way back to it. The first place she found it was practicing chi kung. She was able to let go of her mind and find that peace again. She explored other practices - visualizations, yoga, breath work - and was able to connect with and maintain that sense of peace throughout her day. She continued to explore other forms of meditation and find other benefits even beyond that sense of peace. She was able to disconnect from her thoughts and deeply connect with who she truly is. Today, Patsie has an amazing collection of meditation techniques she draws on every day as she needs to keep connected to her moment by moment experience and her soul.

Vivian Carrasco - A Kinder, Gentler Approach to Daily Practice (interview)
Vivian remembers the dark years. Between moving, changing jobs, her husband retiring and her sons leaving home, her life was turned upside down. She knew she needed to do something different so she decided to simply stop and pay more attention. She started with daily journaling, asking questions and listening for the answers. She sat outside every morning at sunrise, watching the light come from the darkness so she could trust that the light would come back into her life, too. While her practices were helping her, they came with a catch. She was treating them like other items on her to do list, and if she ever missed a practice, she beat herself up. She wanted to find a way to be consistent with her practices in a way that felt kind and loving. Listen to Vivian’s story of how she approaches her daily practice now so it does feel loving and supportive (even when she misses a few days), and how her practice is an ever evolving part of her life.

Sarahjoy Marsh - Yoga to Recover and Thrive (interview)
Sarahjoy’s first daily practices were not kind ones. She compulsively weighed herself, obsessed about food, and exercised all the time. Making art was her only escape from thinking about her body and food. She went on a solo backpacking trip. She struggled up the trail with an overloaded backpack. When she got above the treeline, she put down her pack. As she looked around, she experienced an expansiveness and freedom that she had totally lost touch with in her obsession with food. She started to move her body and connect with how her body actually felt. Soon after she arrived home, she discovered that the movements she spontaneously did had a name - yoga.

Chel Hamilton - Practices to Get Off Autopilot (interview)
Chel was a sensitive kid. For awhile, she ran away from that sensitivity. In her 20s, she found herself getting into trouble - partying too much, staying up too late. She ended up severely depressed and facing major panic attacks. She tried journaling and meditation, but they didn’t help. What did help was a micro practice - stopping to observe what she was thinking and feeling many, many times a day. And things started to shift. She was able to develop more awareness and was eventually able to stop her panic attacks. Chel went on to learn hypnotherapy and uses it to help her stop the automatic negative responses and replace them with new, more positive patterns. She is able to live her life in the calm, confident, loving way she wants.
