Lifefulness: Live Life Fully
It's our birthday! Or at least it was two weeks ago. Yes, the Lifefulness Podcast is 1 year old, which totally blew our minds. We decided to do a special episode reflecting on what we've learnt through 63 interviews. The 8 questions we dig into are:1) What did you learn about Lifefulness?2) What did our guests have in common?Then we dig into the 6 PIllars of Lifefulness:3) What did we learn about Ultimate Meaning?4) What did we learn about Celebration and Contemplation?5) What did we learn about Community Life?6) What did we learn about Personal Growth?7) What did we learn about Serving Others?8) What did we learn about Speaking Truth?It turns out that speaking to incredibly smart people every week, will do wonders for your thinking. We've essentially had deep-dives with thought leaders in our field once every 7 days, and boy has it helped us.Thanks so much for listening. You're amazing. We love doing this for you. Can't wait to see where it goes. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Creating Communal Peak Experiences with Sanderson Jones
The Happy Entrepreneur Podcast
This podcast is the first in a series of episodes where I'll be focussing on our annual event here in the south of England called the Happy Startup Summercamp. We first held this event in 2013 and we're now into our 7th year. Summercamp is the business event that Laurence and I were looking for when we were running our digital agency. It's a heady mix of inspirational talks, practical workshops, fun activities, deep conversations and serendipitous connections. We have veteran campers who come back every year and we have new attendees who have no idea what they're in for. They come together as strangers and leave as friends. Over the next 5 episodes I'll be talking to some of our Summercamp contributors so you can get to know them and what they bring to camp. My hope is you'll have a better understanding of what it's like to be at the event. I'm kicking off the series with the MC of Summercamp and the glue that sticks everything together. Sanderson Jones is one of the founders of Sunday Assembly and also the creator of Lifefulness. In Sandeson's words Lifefulness is to congregation what mindfulness is to meditation. During the discussion we talk about peak experiences, the importance of gathering with others and what it's like to be on startup love island. If you're passionate about building community and hosting events that create real impact then listen on.

Moving and grooving in the aisles in 'Celebration of Life', singing along to Bonnie Tyler's 'I Need A Hero' and listening to Alice in Wonderland readings is just part of the joy, fun and uplifting things that go on in the Sunday Assembly, co-founded by stand-up Comedian, Sanderson Jones. So what IS this all about? How does someone go from touring Australia, gigging at the Edinburgh fringe being part of the London comedy scene, suddenly out of seemingly nowhere begin a monthly 'church service' for atheists? No worship, no altar, no communion wine - a need breed of spiritual gathering in a traditional setting. As Sanderson says, 'we kept all the good stuff of church services'. We managed to track down and interview this bushy bearded non-vicar who is now drawing in the crowds with over 200 people worldwide to set up their own Sunday Assemblies. Living up to his comedian status, Sanderson keeps us in stitches of laughter with this short and spirited chat. If this is a taster of what goes on at the Sunday Assembly then no wonder it is packed out and becoming more popular by the month...look out for them coming to a Church near YOU!!! These guys are on fire.
