Creating the Impossible with Michael Neill

We are REALLY excited about this one!(I know, we always say that, but seriously, we are!!)We have our dear friend and colleague Michael Neill as our guest and the theme for the interview is: How do we make the invisible visible, and the impossible possible. It’s filled with insights and reflections about how the process of creating something happens(or as the tagline of Michaels book says: taking stuff out of your head and putting it into the world) and how something that seems impossible can switch into something do-able. We experience this process all the time, and constantly learn to see beyond our imagined limitations and through the walls of what is «possible» for us personally, as One Solution, and as the world. The good news for us all, however, is what Michael shared in the conversation: «You don’t need special skills to go through an imaginary wall» That means that we are literally a blink away from new opportunity. Because although we know that the mind creates imaginary LIMITS, we also have first hand experience in the magic, or dare we say miracles, that can happen when those limits evaporate. Here are some highlights of what we talk about: - How to create something when we don’t see how. (Hint: it turns out looking for HOW is not where «it’s at» when it comes to STARTING.) - How do we move forward when we do see what  we want to do and how, but we’re still stuck even before we start. - How progress looks WAY different than the way we think it will look. - Maneuvering failure, plateaus, doubt, fear, obstacles. - How global solutions is not going to come from doing MORE or working harder, it’s going to come from something NEW. - And much much more!If you enjoyed this, we would REALLY appreciate it if you rate and review our podcast, it really helps us fool the Itunes algorithm and get infront of more people! :)

The cure to addiction and all other coping mechanisms

In this podcast, we(Eirik and Mara) are fresh of the boat at a 3 day visit at the Farnum center in Manchester,NH. Here is what they do:The Farnum Center help people realize their own inner health by coming to an understanding that every human being has a healthy internal core that is fully accessible to them. Everyone has inner resiliency and the ability to bounce back and overcome adversity when we gain perspective of what gets in the way. Their clients learn about your innate capacity for health, insight, and contentment. You will also learn how accessing a healthier perspective about your life will help you leave your past behind. We will guide you through your journey from the day you enter our program until you are ready to leave. Working as a team, you will reclaim your life from addiction to alcohol and other drugs, and become a happier and more positive person. Now, if that doesn't already convey how awesome this center is, we can vouch that it is! In this episode you will hear us dissect some of the insights we gained around addiction, and how that plays into all other "symptoms" we see in the world right now. What we find especially hopeful about their approach to helping people with addiction is:- They look for the health and wisdom in the person, not for what's wrong. - They teach them about how their mind creates their world, and therefore how they can go beyond the situation and circumstance around them. - They teach them how the mind works in such a way that they don't get put off by bad feelings, and therefore don't need to do the drugs or alcohol to help them deal with it. They are able to deal with it internally, by not being afraid of their experience. We feel like this nuggets are HUMAN nuggets, that any human can see more about, and will help everyone in the world. If we all just saw more of those points, we would live in a different world. We hope you enjoy this first introepisode from the two of us - and as we mention the next ones from Farnum Center will be from the staff and clients themselves!!

People are not broken - with Anna Debenham

She does that in a new and sustainable way: By looking at the mind. In a very human, common sense way she helps facilitate  the unlocking of peoples minds and point towards the resilience within them. The result is they increase their wellbeing, mental health, and make different choices either while still in prison or when they get out. She explains that the only thing that truly can make somebody change is an internal shift - and that is what all her work is about. To check out more from what she is talking about, check out this video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv7lMMdBCYE In this podcast you will hear stories about her own journey of doing this work, aswell as examples from her students in prison. This is the solution to truly rehabilitating and preventing, and looks for peoples mental health. About Insight Alliance The Insight Alliance uncovers the natural resilience and innate mental health all human beings already have inside them.

The depth and breadth of my experience ranges from being part of a multi-disciplinary healing and support team for at-risk boys at the London organization, StreetWise Youth; establishing an outpatient program for a drug and alcohol recovery centre in Melbourne, Australia; to working as a coach and facilitator for Westminster council in London. My career shifted when I came across this groundbreaking way of helping people understand the principles behind our state of mind. My experience working in a UK prison with Beyond Recovery ignited a love of helping those incarcerated and those transitioning to their freedom. Now I bring all my experience together as Director of The Insight Alliance. The Insight Alliance is partnered with the YWCA as we expand to Coffee Creek woman’s prison and SCI in Salem. The programs continue to grow by word of mouth and by post-release individuals that stay connected to and work with the Alliance. The organic evolution of The Insight Alliance demonstrates the boundless potential and creative possibility of inspired people, and the wonderful power of fresh thought.

From labeled biologically depressed to being mentally free.

Recording this podcast really made an impact on us. It's the story of a teenager that had her life and reality turned upside down, when she met Anna Debenham from Insight Alliance.  She was told she had Biologic Depression and needed to be on a cocktail of medicines, with no hope for any change occurring. But as soon as she sat down and heard about the fact that she is not broken, and that it was just her mind playing tricks on her, everything changed. We're not going to spoil it any further, and just invite you to listen for yourself. About The Insight Alliance:One Solution co-founded a Collective with the Insight Alliance and The Spark Initiative, to join forces in our quest to look at the mind and our innate resilience as the route to change. The Insight Alliance focuses Primarily on work in prisons.The Insight Alliance uncovers the natural resilience and innate mental health all human beings already have inside them.

Interview: Overcoming addiction by realizing your mental health!

This is a the first interview we did with participants of the Farnum Center Program in Manchester NH. (To hear more about what this is about, listen to previous episode with Mara and Eirik) In this particular episode you hear from 4 of the clients who have gone through a period of learning about their own mind and their own innate resilience and health - and how that has helped them get sober and stay sober. We were so impressed by the wisdom these guys shared, and what they have learned and how they wanted to pay it forward and help other people struggling with Addiction. Hear them share both their personal stories, aswell as their hope for a better future for the world. We love how they shared that learning about their minds not only helps them with addiction but with a persons whole life. EVERYTHING gets better when we feel better. Enjoy!

Women could't use credit cards! - A talk about thought and world change

This podcast is a throwback to the One Solution conference that was held in Oslo in may 2016. This is a short ted-style talk that Linda Pransky did, and we love it! She is a dear friend, collegeague and we love both the simplicity and profoundness she talks about how one person changes is the same way the whole world changes. About the talk:Thought produces the apparent limitations of the mind, which are also the limitations of the world. There are deeper solutions within the mind that allow us to transcend these limitations. In this talk, Linda will discuss how an understanding of the nature of thought and our mind releases these resources into the world. Hear her make the connection between personal limitations, and global limitations, and how they are the same process! If you like, it - please subscribe/Review us on Itunes :)

The Global Immunesystem

We are always searching for what is the ONE thing that affects everything, and this podcast will be about how important that search is. To visualize this we use the metaphor of an immunesystem - if we increase our global mental immunesystem all of our global issues improve. This is true for your body, for your family, for a community, for a business, and for the world. When humans feel better, we do better - and when we are healthy, we make healthy decisions. It's as simple as that, but why are most of us spending time fixing what went wrong, rather than preventing it from happening in the first place?
