I agree with the other reviewer and am very frustrated by the host. She needs to let the speaker talk more. Also, NOT fond of the commercials that seem more mainstream and its disappointing to know that Consciousshift would agree to take money from these advertisers. Said it.

After exploring more than 50 other podcasts, I'm so glad I stumbled upon this one (ConsciousSHIFT). The brilliant minds & hearts of the guests that Julie Ann is able to invite to the show is truly inspiring. The advice shared is very generous, and both uplifting and actionable. I've only heard the recent 3 months of interviews but already there are gems I would listen to again, particularly the interviews with: Michael Bungay Stanier, Jonathan Robinson, and Tom Shadyac. (The John Hunter interview should be awesome too, but at this writing, it's not downloading properly.)

Rank #1: Dr. Judith Orloff/THE EMPATH'S SURVIVAL GUIDE 05/03/17

Podcast cover
Read more
We all know someone who is more sensitive than others and more affected by the hardships around them.

The term that describes these sensitive people is "empaths." But unlike the experience of normal empathy, they not only share in others' joy and pain, they actually feel and absorb others' emotions and physical symptoms.

Empath's heightened experience of the world can overwhelm or even damage them, unless they learn tools to empower and ground themselves.

Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest, Dr. Judith Orloff - author of The Empath's Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People - says that research shows that 1 out of 5 people are highly sensitive.

But what is the difference between having empathy and being an empath or highly sensitive?

"Empathy means our heart goes out to another person in joy or pain," says Dr. Orloff. "But empaths actually feel others' emotions and physical symptoms in their own bodies, without the usual defenses most people have.

While most of us tend to think first, and then feel, empaths function in the opposite way. Other characteristics of empaths include:

* They are overwhelmed by large groups and need a lot of alone time;
* Labeled as shy, introverted, or overly sensitive;
* Over-stimulated by noise, odors and non-stop talkers;
* A need to replenish in nature.

In our over-intellectualized society, we often do empaths a disservice by thinking there is something "wrong" with them and misdiagnosing them with sensory processing disorder, depression, agoraphobia, panic disorder, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue.

They have a gift that needs to be nurtured.

While their big hearts and amazing talent for deciphering other's feelings often lead them to health and service professions, it can also lead to compassion fatigue and burnout.

To better embrace their special gifts, empaths need to develop self-preservation techniques to not only survive, but thrive.

Join Julie Ann and Judith to discover 5 insider tips for empaths and highly sensitive people in an insensitive world - with these strategies in place, you can enjoy your gifts of depth, creativity, intuition, love of nature, capacity to deeply love, and fulfill your desire to help others and better the world.

Rank #2: NEALE DONALD WALSCH / AWAKEN THE SPECIES 05/03/17

Podcast cover
Read more
An essential and new message is coming through, shared by Neale Donald Walsch in his latest book, Conversations With God, Book 4: Awaken the Species.

Julie Ann is honored to host Neale again on ConsciousSHIFT (see May 2010 Show on iTunes http://itun.es/igQ6Wv) - in this show they discuss Neale's unexpected, and powerful, new message from God (introductory excerpts below):

You are already awake.

You just aren't acting like you are.

The jarring state of the world you are experiencing is reminding you that you're already awake, and you can choose to do something about it.

Even those who did not know before, know now.

It's becoming too obvious for even the most immature members of your emerging species to not seek it, to not realize it, or to pretend they don't know. Yet you're still not acting as if you know. You're not integrating what you know.

You must begin acting like you know Who You Are.

That is all that's going to be required for all of you who already feel that you are awake to bring and end to every nightmarish condition.

The invitation is to demonstrate Who You Really Are - and one way you see yourself doing it is by assisting in ending the suffering of others, bringing healing to a planet, and affecting in a a positive way the future of those you love.

The invitation is to awaken, as part of your process of personal evolution, the many members of your species who are already awake, to the fact that they are, and then to inspire them to begin acting like it also, so to model and inspire an awakened behavior for those others who are still asleep - and to do this because your personal evolution calls you to. You can't awaken the species until you awaken yourself.

Being awake and knowing what you know ... and having all that you know fully integrated into your life ... are two different things.

God resides inside you. You are an Individuation of Divinity.

It's time to start acting like it.

Survival is not your basic instinct. If you all followed your basic instinct, the survival of your species would not be in question. It would be guaranteed.

The basic instinct of humanity is the expression of every human's True Identity - which is Divinity.

If humans followed the impulse of their soul in every moment, they would create Heaven on Earth overnight.

It is The Perfect Time for Advancement.

Join Julie Ann and Neale, as he shares 16 contrasts between how we live and how an awakened Highly Evolved Being would act, as well as the 7 Tools of Integration - which we may use to live an Awakened Life, fulfill our potential, AND save ourselves, the species, and the planet.

ConsciousSHIFT with Julie Ann Turner featuring
Daniel Pink /WHEN: Secrets of Perfect Timing

Timing is everything ... but we don't know much about timing itself. It turns out, timing is not an art - it is a science ... one we may use to our great benefit.

Our lives are a neverending stream of 'when' decisions:
when to start a business, schedule a class, get serious about a person.

Yet we make those decisions based on intuition and guesswork.

Timing, it's often assumed, is an art; Daniel Pink shows that timing is in fact a science.

Drawing on a rich trove of research from psychology, biology and economics, Pink reveals how best to live, work and succeed.

* How can we use the hidden patterns of the day to build the ideal schedule?

* Why do certain breaks dramatically improve student test scores?

* How can we turn a stumbling beginning into a fresh start?

* Why should we avoid going to the hospital in the afternoon?

* Why is singing in time with other people as good for us as exercise?

* And what is the ideal time to quit a job, switch careers, or get married?

Join Julie Ann and Dan for irresistible stories and practical takeaways that will give you compelling insights into how we can live richer, more engaged lives.

of balance, through a powerful practice
of Conscious Self-Care.

Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest Danielle Sax -
an internationally recognized author, speaker

how "over-giving" can actually work against
the joy we seek during this annual Season of Giving -

and our most precious relationships
and moments in our lives.

and their well-being in the process.

In her book "Shifting Out of Chronic Stress," Danielle
shares how Conscious Self-Care offers a powerful,
long-lasting solution. By sharing her authentic story
and expertise, she shows you how you, too, like

Steve Jobs, fresh from the sting of being
unceremoniously dismissed from Apple,
bought a little-known graphics company
called Pixar from George Lucas.

For years Jobs personally financed the company —
hoping that it would be his comeback story —
breaking new ground in the technology of computer animation.

For Pixar to lift off the ground though,
it would need help.

And that was where Steve Jobs turned
to Lawrence Levy, Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT
guest, and author of TO PIXAR AND BEYOND:
My Unlikely Journey with Steve Jobs to Make Entertainment History.

What Lawrence, a Harvard-trained lawyer
and executive, found as he explored Pixar -
was a company on the verge of failure.

Lawrence shares the story of what happened next:
how, working closely with Jobs, Lawrence produced
and implemented a highly improbable plan
that transformed Pixar into one of Hollywood’s
greatest success stories.

Join Julie Ann and Lawrence to discover the untold
and unknown story of how he worked hand-in-hand
with Steve Jobs to reinvent a tiny video graphics studio
and grow it into one of the most powerful and beloved
motion picture studios of our time.

Rank #7: THOMAS MOORE/THE SOUL OF CHRISTMAS 12/20/17

Podcast cover
Read more
Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest, Thomas Moore - author of THE SOUL OF CHRISTMAS (and New York Times bestseller "Care of the Soul," among his 22 books) - says that, in truth, "the enchantment of Christmas is a taste of what is possible if human beings could really love each other."

The infant in the manger symbolizes new life, the potential all human beings have to be a new kind of being dedicated to agape, a love of the other - whoever that 'other' may be."

Moore believes this sacred holiday has plenty to offer to Christians and non-Christians alike - that is an event and a transformation that belongs to everyone.

THE SOUL OF CHRISTMAS is all about Christmas - taking a look at one of the important symbols of the Christmas season (the birth of Jesus in a manger, the guiding star, the Magi, the Angels, and the Christmas tree), and exploring their history and their meaning, across belief systems - to discover how everyone, no matter what their religion or belief, can enjoy this magical time of year.

Moore shows that focusing on the meaning behind the symbolism and the sentiment behind the commercialism can lead us to a way of living that can hold value to people of any faith:
a grand experiment in living from generosity rather than competitiveness, a single day when children know better than anyone that magic exists.

With the right mindset, even shopping can become a deep practice of love and spirituality. Treasure the gifts exchanged at this time. "Christmas gifts are a taste of utopia, a way of being in the world that flows from the heart and overcomes ego anxieties. In this way, gifts are the real meaning of Christmas and are an important part of the entire, multi-faceted festival."

Christmas, says Moore, belongs to everyone. It has meaning only as a plan for the entire human race.

"If you enter the spirit of Christmas, the child could be born in you. You have a chance to rise above the unconsciousness that is widespread in the world today."

Christmas shouldn't be sentimentalized or turned into consumer frenzy: "The child lying in the manger is perhaps the most radical of all spiritual reformers."

The Christ Child reminds us of the infinite possibilities of life available to us, and we celebrate that vitality in the season of good cheer, gift-giving, and community.

Christmas also offers an opportunity to get in touch with our own mystical side, to recreate the Nativity in our hearts. "If we could but mix just a small measure of the child's naïveté with an intelligent appreciation of the traditional Christmas symbols, myths, and images," Moore asserts, "we might be surprised at the profundity."

Meditate on the nativity scene. Put one in your home and notice the ones displayed in your community. "Nothing could be more important than finding ways to incorporate in your person and your life the moment when the spiritual realm fully intersects with your ordinary life."

Join Julie Ann and Thomas to ponder the deeper meanings and wonders of Christmas - available to each of us, with the potential to lift the souls of humanity.

Rank #8: STEVE Farrell / Global ONE 10/18/17

Podcast cover
Read more
What if the world as we know it
operates on a false premise -
a premise that everything is separate
from everything else?

What if ultimate reality is something different
than what we believe in the mainstream?

What if we can create Heaven on Earth
by simply living as who we really are?

Global Oneness Day was created
precisely to address these things.

Join Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest, Steve Farrell - co-founder
with "Conversations with God" author Neale Donald Walsch
of Humanity's Team, the international organization and
movement that created "Global Oneness Day" -
the "Earth Day for Awakened Humanity" -
in its 8th year, on Tuesday, Oct. 24.

> Register for the free Global Oneness Day Summit & Gifts
https://vg165.isrefer.com/go/g1d17JAT/jaturner/

Speakers include Michael Beckwith, Marianne Williamson, Jean Houston, Doreen Virtue, Nassim Haramein, Panache Desai, Gary Zukav, Ervin Laszlo, Neale Donald Walsch, Barbara Marx

Hubbard, Bruce Lipton, Gregg Braden, Lynne McTaggart and Ervin Laszlo, and many others.

ConsciousSHIFT is a Global Oneness Day Co-Creator this year,
and I am committed in lending my support, as I have for years.

I’m contributing my time to call attention to our connection,
our Oneness, because this is the first step
in creating a fulfilling, compassionate and sustainable world.

It is an ancient truth, a timeless truth,
that we are all One with the Divine,
each other and all of life.

We are not separate, even though
it appears that we are
when we look out on the world.

This wisdom is shared in the Old Testament,
Bhagavad Gita, the Vedas, Tao Te Ching,
the Upanishads and other Sacred Text.

The message that we are all One
with the Divine and each other
has been shared over the millennia.

In Oneness, we see that what we do for others
we are actually doing for our self.

It is easy to see how this leads us down a virtuous path.

For example, when people are hurting
or the earth is crying out for our attention, we respond.

But not from a vantage point of a problem
that is “out there” because there is no “out there."

Everything is interrelated, interconnected and interdependent -
so everything is personal and we hold everything close.

In Humanity’s Team we believe this is the missing message.

It is the message that turns the world right side up.

When we commune with the Divine within and live in connection
with the world around us everything starts to come together.

We are part of the beautiful planet we inhabit,
so we naturally come into service to humanity and all of life.

Imagine what the world looks like when we live in the truth
of our connection, our Oneness.

Imagine each of us communing with the Divine within
and coming into service to the world around us
because we know it is part of who we are.

Imagine all of us living as our Big Self, not our small self.
This is the Heaven on Earth that we’ve all dreamed about.

We believe we can make this our reality in this generation.

In 2007, the Humanity’s Team Global Council gathered
in Portugal to discuss this. We reflected upon how Earth Day
had been created to address the ecological crisis and discussed
how a Global Oneness Day might call attention to the illusion
of separation that has caused so much dysfunction in the world.

We agreed to create an Oneness Petition and to solicit signatures
from all over the world. In 2010 we gathered over 50,000 signatures
from over 150 countries and arranged a meeting with Ambassador
Anwarul Chowdhury at the United Nations. On May 20th our team
presented the petition and formally requested that the United Nations create a Global Oneness Day.

The rest is history.

We were invited to create Global Oneness Day so we did.

Our first Global Oneness Day was on October 24th, 2010.

We arranged a global conference call with the capacity
to hand

Kelly McNelis/YOUR MESSY BRILLIANCE

There is no magic pill ... no one-size-fits-all solution to your problems ... no guru coming to save you.

And there is no personal-development program that will get you to “perfect.”

The truth is, you don’t need any of those things. You are brilliant and breathtakingly powerful, exactly as you are.

The remarkable truth — one that you already know deep down in your bones — is that this idea of perfection can’t
bring you the joy, passion, and purpose you are craving.

What you are looking for, according to author and Women For One founder Kelly McNelis, is your messy brilliance.

It’s the part of you that’s perfectly imperfect and that contains your wholeness: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

In fact, fully owning our stories will free us from the disease of perfectionism, shame, and self-judgment that holds us back from living the life of our dreams.

Rank #11: STEVEN KOTLER / STEALING FIRE 03/15/17

Podcast cover
Read more
We are witnessing a revolution in human possibility - a growing movement to storm heaven and steal fire.

It's about a $4 trillion dollar underground revolution in hacking consciousness to increase performance.

Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest Steven Kotler -
co-author with Jamie Wheal, of STEALING FIRE:
How to Harness the Revolution in Altered States -
the story of Silicon Valley executives, members of
the U.S. special forces, maverick scientists,
to name only a few—who are turning everything
we thought we knew about high-performance upside down.

Instead of grit, better habits, or 10,000 hours, these trailblazers
have found a surprising short cut.

They're harnessing altered states of consciousness
to solve critical challenges and outperform their competition.

Today, this revolution is spreading from the extreme
to the mainstream, forcing us to rethink how we can
all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives.

Driven by four accelerating forces — psychology,
neurobiology, technology and pharmacology —
we are gaining access to and insights about
some of the most controversial and misunderstood
terrain in history.

It is essential to know how to navigate these potent forces -
so we can harness them safely and responsibly,
and avoid common traps that exist as we explore
the edge of consciousness and human potential.

New York Times bestselling author Steven Kotler and performance expert Jamie Wheal spent four years investigating behind the scenes of this revolution-from the Virginia Beach home of SEAL Team Six, to the Googleplex in Mountain View, to the Burning Man festival in Nevada, to Richard Branson’s hideaway on Necker Island, to Red Bull’s headquarters in Santa Monica, to Nike’s innovation team in Portland, to the United Nations Headquarters in New York.

And what they learned was stunning: In their own ways, with differing languages, techniques, and applications, every one of these groups has been quietly seeking the same thing: the boost in information and inspiration that altered states provide.

Today, this revolution is spreading to the mainstream, fueling a trillion dollar underground economy and forcing us to rethink how we can all lead richer, more productive, more satisfying lives.

Join Julie Ann and Steven to enter that revolution - to discover the nature of “ecstasis”—those moments where we step beyond our default consciousness - and begin to explore more expansive possibilities, in the intersection of consciousness, wellbeing and performance.

My empathy was used against me.
I was terrified of him, and ashamed I was in this position.
What bound me to him was my desire to heal him.

My compassion was incomplete - because it did not include me.

When he threatened to kill me, I knew I had to escape.
I revealed the truth to my mom, and she encouraged me
to seek help at a local domestic violence center.
This conversation saved my life.

Authentic love does not devalue another human being.
Authentic love does not silence, shame, or abuse.

If you are in a relationship that does not honor and respect you,
I want you to know that you are worthy of love.
Please reach out for help. Your voice will save you.
Let it extend into the night, let it part the darkness,
let it set you free to know who you truly are -
valuable, beautiful, loved."

Since then, Brooke founded SHE IS RISING,
to provide a healing community for survivors
of rape, abuse and sex trafficking.

http://www.sheisrising.org

Brooke herself was trafficked by her nanny when she
was 7 years old. And this experience made her more vulnerable
to experiencing domestic violence later in life, she explains—
a major risk factor for entering abusive relationships
is sexual abuse before the age of 18.

"I founded SHE IS RISING because I believe in
the unconditional worth of women and girls
who face the trauma of violence and exploitation,"
Brooke says. "I believe in their dignity, resilience,
creativity and vision for the future. SHE IS RISING
empowers survivors to become leaders."

Join Julie Ann and Brooke as they explore the ways we can all help inspire young women to reclaim their worth
and express their power to create a more compassionate world.

help resolve problems, but craft a new ending
that serves us all, both on a personal level,
and on a global level.

Ever feel like the clouds are closing in on you -
and you just can't seem to break through
to see the blue sky of your true potential -
and your power to choose happiness?

Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest and renowned Zen master
Joseph Emet - author of FINDING THE BLUE SKY: A Mindful Approach
to Choosing Happiness Here and Now - shares powerful
mindfulness techniques that allow us to choose
happiness in every moment.

Joseph says multiple mindfulness techniques can foster happiness -
even when life is far from perfect. These practices help us to:

• Retell our personal narrative
• Incorporate moments of pleasure into each day
• Identify and omit the destructive habits that we assume will bring us happiness
• Understand how emotional states impact the way we experience the world
• Determine real needs from wants, and learn how to express them
• Counteract the daily indoctrination of the media
• Practice mindful laziness
• Experience agelessness by being in the moment

Instead of focusing on the negative, positive psychology focuses
on what makes people happy - tracing the fascinating intersection
between the age-old wisdom of Buddhism and the latest scientific
research.

Join Julie Ann and Joseph to discover how to replace negative thinking
with positive thinking, move from frenzied thinking to quiet contemplation,
and enjoy happiness as a daily - even moment-to-moment experience.

Rank #16: ALEX PANG/REST: Why You Get More Done When You Work Less 12/07/16

Podcast cover
Read more
In our 24-7 global economy, REST
feels like a luxury at best
and a weakness at worst.

We see work and rest as competitors -
but what if they're actually partners
in a productive, balanced life?

Indeed, knowing how to rest well
turns out to be the secret to how many writers,
scientists, and artists managed to be creative
and prolific, while having less harried
and busy lives than ours.

Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT Show guest - Alex Pang,
author of REST: Why You Get More Done
When You Work Less - shares scientific research,
along with examples of writers, painters and thinkers -
from Darwin to Stephen King - to expose how we've
underestimated the power of rest for our success.

Though it's as natural as breathing, REST
is also a skill we can all learn to boost
our creativity and productivity.

We'll explore three big ideas:

Work and rest are partners.

We normally think of rest as the opposite of work, or a negative space defined only by the absence of work.

Conversations about “work-life balance” imply that work and rest are competitors. In the lives of the people I write about, work and rest complement and complete each other. Periods of focused work allow people to feel they’ve earned rest, and to enjoy it without guilt; rest offers a chance to recover from work, and creates a space for creative minds to stretch, explore new ideas, and generate insights. These lives show that work and rest need not be opposites; they can be partners, each making half of a whole life.
Rest is a skill.

We often think of rest as mindless relaxation. Laying in the sun or binge-watching Netflix has its place; but the best kinds of rest are not passive, but are active, mindful, and deliberate.
Rest enhances creativity.

History’s most creative people rested in common ways, and built similar relationships between their work and rest. Fortunately, science can help explain why deliberate rest helps us be sharper, smarter, and more innovative, and helps us see how we can build deliberate rest into our own lives.

Join Julie Ann and Alex to discover ways that upping
our downtime, from sleep to hobbies to vacation -
we can craft a new roadmap for finding renewed energy and inspiration, and getting more done with more ease.

Rank #17: JEFF FOSTER / THE WAY OF REST 11/30/16

Podcast cover
Read more
What if you are perfect
exactly as you are?

Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest, Jeff Foster -
author of THE WAY OF REST: Finding The Courage
to Hold Everything in Love - invites each of us to rediscover
that you are perfect even in your imperfection ..

and that even your pain, confusion, and exhaustion
are saturated with intelligence and sacredness.

Discover how radical self-acceptance can be the key
to cultivating vulnerability, finding peace of mind,
and celebrating the majesty of every moment.

You immediately get a sense of the power of Jeff's
gentle, yet profound, guidance:

“I hope my words inspire, challenge, and encourage you.
But most of all, I hope they help you remember that you are life ...
inseparable from the power that grows the flowers
and gives birth to galaxies,” Jeff says.

Drawing from his personal journey - including his own struggles
with illness and depression - Jeff guides us to restore and revive
ourselves when we feel exhausted or defeated, inviting us
to contemplate “the Way of Rest” - and and its potential
to transform our experience of:.

• Imperfection—how we are “gloriously flawed” yet complete exactly as we are

• Not knowing—how we come to trust in the greater intelligence of life

• Melancholy and loneliness—how we learn to release the healing energies of “exquisite sensitivity”

• Ordinary moments—recognizing and receiving “the closest thing of all”

• Discomfort and discontent—how our frustrations become an opening to deep peace

• Love—rediscovering who we are beyond our carefully constructed facades

• Silence—discovering the vibrancy of living by letting go of thoughts and concepts

Join Julie Ann and Jeff to explore how finding "the Way of Rest" -
and finding the courage to hold everything in love -
creates the "pathless path" to a peaceful, joyful human experience.

Rank #18: JONATHAN FIELDS / HOW TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE 11/16/16

Podcast cover
Read more
So often, we look at life as a game to win,
or a journey to get from where we are now
to that magical, far-off destination where,
finally, we get to live a good life.

Except, it doesn’t work that way.
There is no there there, there is only here now.

When we look at living a good life as some faraway “place,”
we end up losing so much of the grace
that comes from the practice of day to day life.

Everyone is so focused on happiness.

Does it matter? Yup.

But the real difference-maker is meaning.

In no small part because happiness is a snapshot,
it's fleeting.

Meaning endures, sustains and fills,
even when happiness is off on walkabout.

Join Julie Ann and Jonathan in a dynamic, live exploration
of how to find your own meaning - your own Good Life;
and leave you feeling lit up by the way you contribute
to the world, as you're guided to do the work
you were put on the planet to do.

Rank #19: STEVE FARRELL / GLOBAL ONENESS 1019/16

Podcast cover
Read more
What if the world as we know it
operates on a false premise -
a premise that everything is separate
from everything else?

What if ultimate reality is something different
than what we believe in the mainstream?

What if we can create Heaven on Earth
by simply living as who we really are?

Global Oneness Day was created
precisely to address these things.

Join Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT guest, Steve Farrell - co-founder
with "Conversations with God" author Neale Donald Walsch
of Humanity's Team, the international organization and
movement that created "Global Oneness Day" -
the "Earth Day for Awakened Humanity" -
in its 7th year, on Monday, Oct. 24.

> Register for the free Global Oneness Day Summit & Gifts
https://vg165.isrefer.com/go/g1d16JAT/jaturner/

Speakers include Deepak Chopra, Iyanla Vanzant, Michael Bernard Beckwith,
Barbara Marx Hubbard, Neale Donald Walsch, and many others.

ConsciousSHIFT is a Global Oneness Day Co-Creator this year,
and I am committed in lending my support, as I have for years.

It is an ancient truth, a timeless truth,
that we are all One with the Divine,
each other and all of life.

We are not separate, even though
it appears that we are
when we look out on the world.

This wisdom is shared in the Old Testament,
Bhagavad Gita, the Vedas, Tao Te Ching,
the Upanishads and other Sacred Text.

The message that we are all One
with the Divine and each other
has been shared over the millennia.

In Oneness, we see that what we do for others
we are actually doing for our self.

It is easy to see how this leads us down a virtuous path.

We believe we can make this our reality in this generation.

This year our theme is “Seeing the Divine in Life”
and “Standing in the shoes of the ‘Other’”.

Deepak Chopra is our Global Oneness Day Honorary Chairman.

You can view a complete list of the speakers and the program schedule here:
https://vg165.isrefer.com/go/g1d16JAT/jaturner/

Finding the Essence of Innovation in Creative Pairs

When is the work of two people together greater
than what either could do on their own?

As long as we’ve been interested in creativity,
we’ve been preoccupied by
the myth of the lone genius.

Julie Ann's ConsciousSHIFT Guest Joshua Wolf Shenk -
author of THE POWERS OF TWO - busts this fantasy apart,
and draws on new scientific research to show how
the pair is the embodiment of ingenuity.

On the show, we'll explore the magic of John Lennon
and Paul McCartney, the power of "hidden partners"
(even Einstein had one), and the genius of scores
of others in the fields of writing, music, dance,
science, technology, social activism, and business.

When it comes to creative success, we'll discover why
Josh persuasively argues that two is the magic number –
and why this changes everything we thought we knew
about creativity.

Join Julie Ann and Josh to discover the “secrets”
of creative pairs!
