Rank #6: Yoga Adventure: How my teacher Kelda Anderson laughs at her ego self & teaches her baby birds how to fly Episode #56

Podcast cover
Read more

In western culture we so often are focused on the individual. Taking care of ourselves and then our family and friends. Travelling the world I was always aware of how so many other countries and cultures were entrenched in the philosophy of union and a tribe mentality. Even when it comes to the Eastern practice of Yoga we somehow manage to separate the practice from the practitioner. We turn the union into a physical and material trend. How to we learn to adopt a union with ourselves, our bodies and our minds?

I will never forget the first time I tried Yoga. I was so nervous and really thought I would not fit in. My good friend Karen and I grabbed our coffees and walked into the studio and from that moment on I was hooked.

Yoga came in and out of my life, a sporadic practice that definitely did not incorporate my spiritual self into the mix, well not intentionally anyway. Even though I was never an athletic person and I hated going to the gym, something about Yoga called me to want to teach. So for my 40th year in this world I gave myself that treat and enrolled in my teacher training with Kelda Anderson at Love Life Hot Yoga. It was the best gift I could ever given myself.

Kelda Anderson was exactly what I needed in my life as a teacher. I had already gone through so many spiritual phases that I was ready for teacher that didn’t take themselves too seriously. Someone who knew how to make fun of themselves, still respected and loved spirituality but in a way that was grounded and fun. Check out our interview, learn about yoga adventure and how Kelda teaches her baby birds to fly.

Rank #7: My Journey of Using Digital Media for Social Good. The Roadrunner, Episode #55

Podcast cover
Read more

I love the feeling of teaching youth the power of using multimedia for social good. We hold these incredible tools in our hands every day with unlimited possibilities in how we can capture the world around us. How can we empower others to embrace digital creativity and use it as a platform to help important stories be told?

Today I’m going to share with you something special to me. It’s the audio from my very first documentary and it’s still one of my favourites. When I was learning this art form we had to choose and organization or an individual in our community to capture. I knew the perfect person and his name is Jeff Murray.

Jeff has cerebral palsy and at the time used a piece of paper to point to letters spelling out what he needed to say. I would always see him going full speed down the street in his electric wheelchair and I wondered what life was like in our small town when it came to accessibility.

As I got to know Jeff and the people in his life I came to find out he was hilarious, a smart ass sometimes, but also an incredible advocate and inspiration for change.

Rank #8: Good Morning Gorgeous: Dale Smith Thomas Teaches Individuals &Corporations How To Find Beauty Within

Podcast cover
Read more

Often times throughout our day we put ourselves down in one way or another. Maybe we think that we are too fat, or too skinny, too tall or not tall enough. Sometimes we can’t even take a compliment when one is sent our way, we just deflect the gesture and downplay our light. How do we change the way we think about ourselves in the world? How do we go from thinking we are drab to knowing we are fab? How do we find our inner gorgeous?

My guest today, Dale Smith Thomas, experienced a similar untruth about herself and did not always think she was pretty, in fact she really thought she was nothing special at all. As she got older she began to realize that her beauty had to come from within.

In her book, Good morning Gorgeous,Dale reflects on her experiences as Mrs. Tennessee and offers a unique perspective on what it means to be truly beautiful. She has already helped thousands of women discover their “inner gorgeous” and continues to reach more every day. In addition to her books, she’s also been a frequent guest on Dr. Phil and other major network television shows.

I know I say this about all of my guests, but I really did fall in love with Dale’s light. It felt like I met a long lost sister. I highly recommend her book because it captures the struggle within ourselves and offers a fresh outlook on how we can break the shackles of our own negative self beliefs.

Rank #9: Hearing With My Heart: Justin Osmond May Have A Hearing Loss, But That Hearing Loss Does Not Have Him

Podcast cover
Read more

I have a bone to pick with the people out there who feel the need to spread their negative beliefs onto  others. Stop it. Your philosophy is tired and the human soul is energized and has proven time and time again, that you’re wrong. It’s time for us to silence the naysayers and listen to what we know to be true in our hearts, that people are incredible and to prove it all they need is a little hope.

My guest today has led an extraordinary life. Justin Osmond was born with 90% hearing loss. That is hard for anyone, but being the son of Merrill Osmond, the lead singer of the world-renowned Osmond Family, made deafness and even bigger challenge.

After 12 years of intense speech and listening therapy, he can now speak with passion and through modern-day technology, hear with conviction.

I am honoured to have him on the show and to continue to spread his incredible message. I think we could all learn a thing or two from Justin’s life experience.
