Throughout Alexia’s career she has gotten to conspire with some of the greatest minds of our time. She worked closely with Richard Branson for over a decade in her 13 year career at Virgin.Then in 2009 she branched out on her own and founded Alexia & Suns, which is a high-level events company that delivers unique, unimaginable experiences. For example she did the weddings for two of Richard Branson’s children. No big deal. And then, my favorite, she collaborated with a group called “The Elders.”
~
 
(So a side note here: The Elders are an Independent group of global leaders working together for peace and human rights, brought together in 2007 by Nelson Mandela, Richard Branson and Peter Gabriel. Members have included President Carter and Desmond Tutu amongst others. And I hadn’t heard about The Elders before and I think at this particular moment in history this type of collaboration is not only incredible but VITAL… so I just wanted to bring awareness to it.)
~
 
So anway… Back to Alexia …Then at the beginning of 2015 Alexia decided to take a break from work to just “be.”  I. love. this. 
~
 
She felt a change brewing and wanted to re-evaluate the direction she wanted her life to go. Alexia embarked on a regimen of healthy eating, meditating and exercising, she surrounded herself with people that inspired her and took more time to do the things she loves. 
~
 
From this space of stillness and clarity her latest venture -SPACE- was born. SPACE is an unbelievable retreat, designed to help you reconnect with the best version of yourself. So, basically my dream vacation. 
~
 
In today’s episode we discuss:
 
-The greatest lesson she learned working with Richard Branson
-Why she asked Virgin to let her go during a recession 
-How she deals with Fear 
-The importance of surrender
-How we can create more space in our life
-And much much more….
~
 
Alexia is an amazing example of someone who follows her heart and calling.. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this conversation and I know you guys will too! Namaste!

Zhena is an award-winning, purpose-driven social entrepreneur, teacher, author, public speaker, and the publisher of Enliven Books, a new Mind-Body-Spirit imprint. 
 
In her critically acclaimed book, Life by the Cup, Zhena chronicles her journey from - being a single mom with $6 to her name - to building a multimillion-dollar fair trade tea company. It’s such an inspirational story. Mark Wahlberg’s production company has actually optioned her book to create a TV series out of it. 
 
Something I love about Zhena is not only that she built this amazing company out of nothing but that she believes that business is the most powerful force for good on the planet. And that all executives should adopt a stronger triple bottom line commitment of PEOPLE, PLANET, & PROFIT. Yessss. 
 
Zhena was a pioneer of the fair trade movement. Her company, Zhena’s Gypsy Tea, which she is no longer the CEO of, was built from this holistic perspective - dedicated to building equitable trading partnerships that create opportunities to alleviate poverty. This includes providing fair wages and added benefits such as better housing, healthcare, education and a sustainable environment. 
 
Zhena’s mission is to inspire others to achieve their most audacious dreams and live in ways that heal themselves and our world. Join us!

Hey guys! Welcome to Episode 17 of The Daily Cordial
 
Today I’m talking to an inspirational friend of mine.. Matt Coulter. 
 
Matt is the co-founder and executive director of The Young and Brave Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping today’s youth beat cancer. What an incredible intention, right? It’s an incredible foundation designed to support those, 40 and under, who are battling cancer. I also love that if you donate to a specific warrior 100% of the money goes to the family… it’s amazing. 
 
One of the things that inspires me most about Matt is his journey to find meaning in his life. 
He started his career in a high paying job, completely driven by money and status.
 
I think most of us can relate to the idea of chasing the wrong things… 
whether it’s Money, Fame, status, (the list goes on and on) and thinking these things are going to bring us that deep fulfillment that we are longing for… “When I have this, or when this happens THEN I will be happy. “
But these things are usually ego driven and insatiable.. so no matter how much money, fame or status we get, it will never be enough. 
 
And if you peel back yet another layer, I think ultimately we are just trying to prove to ourselves and others 
 
1. that we’re enough 
2. that we matter 
3. that we’re special
 
All of which is actually an inside job and will never be satiated from the external world. So either way we’re set up for failure chasing these things that our society places so much value on..   
 
And this is not to say you can’t want these things but understand, that they will probably not fulfill you in the way that you think they will. 
 
Some people go a lifetime unknowingly chasing these things only to reach their goal mystified as to why they don’t feel fulfilled.…and quite the opposite are greeted with empty dissatisfaction. 
 
What’s cool about Matt is that he made this discovery about himself early on. In his early 30’s, feeling dissatisfied and unfulfilled he quit his high paying job and shifted his purpose to giving back to others - starting “The Young and Brave Foundation” with his best friend, professional surfer Nathanial Curran. And his life has been different ever since. 
 
In today’s episode, Matt and I had a really fun and playful conversation and we cover a wide range of topics.. from …discovering your purpose and the value of living in service to others… to sensory deprivation tanks, journaling, sleep & creativity. 
 
We also discuss: 
  • The moment he realized he wasn’t happy and the changes he made to discover a life with meaning
  • His shift from serving SELF to serving OTHERS.. and how that’s changed his life
  • The link between doing what you love and authenticity 
  • How we can all make a difference
  • And much much more.. 
 
Matt is a super smart and creative guy and he’s using his skills to help the greater good, which is what it’s all about. 
 
Hope you guys enjoy the show.

Today we’re talking about the incredible influence that we have to shape our brains, and even our genes! Did you know that the lifestyle choices that we make can actually optimize how our genes and brains behave, allowing us to reach a state of health and fulfillment undreamed of even a decade ago. 
 
Our guest is Harvard Neuroscientist Dr. Rudy Tanzi.
 
Dr. Tanzi is a professor of Neurology at Harvard and Director of the genetics and aging research unit at Mass General Hospital. He is one of the world's foremost experts on the causes of Alzheimer’s. and was name to TIME magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world.
 
Dr Tanzi collaborated with physician and mind-body expert Deepak Chopra and co-authored two books - Super Brain and Super Genes, both of which absolutely blew open my mind!
 
Their first book, Super Brain, is a manual for relating to our brain in a new way. It shows us how to use our brain as a gateway for achieving health, happiness, and spiritual growth.
 
And then in their follow up Super Genes - they say that our experiences actually sculpt our genes! Crazy, right?!
They say, you will always have the genes you were born with, but genes are dynamic, responding to everything we think, say, and do. So, we are the user and controller of our genes, the author of our biological story. And our everyday lifestyle and habits, whether good or bad, are changing our gene activity.  
 
Chopra and Tanzi propose, that through a person’s increased self-awareness and conscious intention, the brain and genes can be taught to reach far beyond their present limitations. They say the brain and genes are capable of incredible healing and constant reshaping. And Through a new relationship with both you can achieve, what they call, radical well-being.

The wisest question when we are deeply sad is not, “How can I end or numb this pain immediately?” The wisest question is, “What is the meaning of this pain? or, “What does it reveal to me?" or "What is it calling me to understand?”  -Marianne Williamson, Tears to Triumph 

My guest today is one of my most important spiritual voices of our time, Marianne Williamson! This is a HUGE deal. Marianne has been one of my greatest teachers of all-time. She is an internationally-acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer. Seven of her twelve published books have been NY Times bestsellers, and four of them have been at #1 on the list!

Her mega-bestseller, A Return to Love, is a must-read. As is her newest book Tears to Triumph, which explores the spiritual journey from suffering to enlightenment. This book really changed my perspective on suffering. I HIGHLY recommend checking it out.

Today we talk about suffering, depression and the path to healing.

 

There’s so much value and wisdom packed into this episode, including:

  • Why suffering is an unavoidable part of our experience? And how can we survive and even transcend it?
  • Why it’s important to be fully available to our suffering, as opposed to suppressing it or numbing it?
  • What the role of forgiveness and love is in freeing us from our pain
  • How we can proactively cultivate happiness
  • The power of forgiveness
  • The wisest question you can ask yourself when you are deeply sad
  • and so much more.

 

In today’s show we explore:

  • Why suffering is a normal part of our human experience
  • The effects of the numbing of our pain
  • The medicalizing of human despair—the multi-million dollar business
  • Why we don’t need pills when we really need to “do the work”
  • The huge black wave of her depression that was unavoidable
  • Lessons learned in a failed political campaign
  • The power of surrendering to a higher power in suffering
  • How to pro-actively cultivate happiness
  • The importance of DOING for others
  • Grief: the psyche’s “immune system”
  • Forgiveness of self and others
  • Meditation to quiet the voice of ego
  • Relationships: where we come to heal
  • Taking responsibility for our speech
  • Buddhist principles -SAY the right thing; DO the right thing

Welcome! Do you need help managing your time and being more productive? Is your life—and your brain—cluttered with a zillion items on your “to-do” list? I have the answer for you! Join me and meet David Allen, a consultant and the author of Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity.

 The “Getting Things Done” methodology, also know as GTD, has shown millions how to transform a fast-paced, overwhelming, overcommitted life into one that is balanced, integrated and relaxed. Time Magazine proclaimed “Getting Things Done” to be ‘the definitive business self-help book of the decade.’

But this technique isn’t just for work - it’s a proven path for getting in control of your life.

 In today’s show we discuss all things PRODUCTIVITY. 

 

  • David walks us through his step by step process of “Getting Things Done” 
  •  We learn the 5 simple steps to apply order to chaos
  • David shares his “2 minute rule” for checking things off your to-do list

  • Why his model is a holistic plan, going through ALL the steps to get really clear. 
  • We each have a comfort zone for unprocessed stuff.
  • Why we keep deadlines and commitments to others, but often NOT to ourselves
  • David’s plan can bring you success in ONLY TWO DAYS! It may take up to two years to become a habit.
  • Why do we procrastinate? We are afraid to fail, so we don’t start. It’s the perfectionist trap.
  • David shares his morning routine. You may be surprised at his priorities!
  • Why your lists and processes need a weekly review
  • Why are we here? “To experience who we are at multiple different levels and explore that so we return back to the essence of what we came from”

I am so excited to have Dr. Lise Janelle, a heart-centered success coach, as today’s guest. I am a huge fan of Dr. Janelle’s work, and it was amazing to be able to have a deep conversation about restoring our connection with ourselves, before we even attempt to connect with others. I learned so much by having this conversation with Dr. Janelle. She discusses how most of us are still dealing with negative conditioning from our past, and the fact that we are all worthy of love isn’t something everyone believes. The good news is there is a path to healing. Dr. Janelle has helped thousands of people move past their limiting beliefs.

 

I was able to get some really good examples of how we are impacted by our incorrect beliefs about ourselves, and she was also able to give us some incredibly valuable advice to change our beliefs.

 

We end the interview with a meditation, so don’t miss out as Dr. Lise guides us in the Heart Freedom Meditation!

  • How to get to a higher level of consciousness without having trauma as the catalyst
  • Why we fall into the trap on not wanting to do the work until something bad happens
  • Why up to 90% of our behaviors are based on conditioning and beliefs from our past
  • Are you petrified of love? Most people are and don’t even know it
  • 3 clues that sub-conscious beliefs are holding you back in any situation 
  • How the 2 stages of human development contribute to our belief systems about ourselves
  • Resources that can help you determine what your limiting beliefs are - find them and destroy them
  • Your limiting beliefs also have physiological impacts - learn how it manifests in your body
  • Finding the root cause of your patterns of belief can free you
  • The root cause of all of your pain lies in the belief that something is wrong with you.
  • The best way to protect your children from these limiting beliefs
  • Every challenge you experience is designed to help you
  • Ways the Best Friend Journal will help you overcome limiting beliefs
  • How you can dissolve the negative beliefs about yourself
  • Ways gratitude can play a role in your mind shift
  • It’s an act of love to get rid of thoughts that are no longer serving you
  • Finding out at what point you are no longer worthy of love can change your paradigm
  • Bringing your essence to the world is an act of love towards yourself and others
  • When obstacles come, address them with, “Since I am worthy of love……why, etc”
  • How to attract the right people to your loving relationships

In this episode we talk to Dr. Beverly Kitaen-Morse who is an internationally renowned therapist in the field of psychotherapy and couples counseling. And she’s going to delve out some relationship advice! But we also goes much deeper into understanding why we interact with the world in the way we do. 

Beverly’s husband Dr. Jack Lee Rosenburg, who recently passed, was an internationally recognized pioneer in the field of psychotherapy. They had an incredible marriage. And for decades, Beverly and her husband worked side by side, to develop what is called - Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP), which is a psychotherapy that recognizes and treats the physical, psychological, and spiritual nature of a human being. It is based on the premise that the body, mind, and spirit are not separate, but rather integrated parts of a whole person. Unlike other modalities, IBP puts a strong emphasis on breathwork to promote mindfulness and alleviate depression and anxiety.

Jack and Beverly co-wrote the book The Intimate Couple and their work is taught globally at IBP institutes around the world. 

I’m currently in a 3-year program studying IBP, I just completed my 2nd year, and throughout the program I’ve seen dramatic personal growth and a new found ability to break free from old patterns and create lasting change.

Beverly and studying IBP has had a profound impact on my life so I really hope you guys find value in this conversation. Re-listen and take notes for maximum impact! 

So we got a little carried away and have a monster interview here so I split into two parts -

 In Part 1 we discuss:  

•How Beverly went from a housewife without a college education to a dr in her 40’s

•Why your same “themes” continue to come up in every relationship 

•How Beverly and her husband created IBP to make sure that the things that got in the way of their first marriages wouldn’t get in the way of their marriage

•Why it’s difficult to sustain change… whether it’s in diet, relationships, exercise, bad habits.. etc.

•The MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do to change an unwanted behavior or pattern

•How our early childhood wounds directly impact the way we see the world today

•And why we need to work with our mind AND our body in order to make lasting changes

 

In Part 2:

•Beverly offers up her #1 piece of relationship advice 

•we learn how to stop interrupting our happiness

•The MOST important thing you can do for your child as a parent

•How to wake up and live from your true self and feel a greater level of aliveness

•Practices you can use in your relationship to increase connection 

•And much much more! 

 

SOME QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF BEFORE LISTENING:

•what is a destructive theme or pattern that you bring to your relationships? 

•And in general, what is an area of sensitivity for you, something that particularly triggers or upsets you?

 Just take note of them. I think you’ll find it useful to get the most out of these episodes.

And for decades, Beverly and her husband worked side by side, to develop what is called - Integrative Body Psychotherapy (IBP), which is a psychotherapy that recognizes and treats the physical, psychological, and spiritual nature of a human being. It is based on the premise that the body, mind, and spirit are not separate, but rather integrated parts of a whole person. Unlike other modalities, IBP puts a strong emphasis on breathwork to promote mindfulness and alleviate depression and anxiety.

Jack and Beverly co-wrote the book The Intimate Couple and their work is taught globally at IBP institutes around the world 

 

I’m currently in a 3-year program studying IBP, I just completed my 2nd year, 

and throughout the program I’ve seen dramatic personal growth and a new found ability to break free from old patterns and create lasting change.

Beverly and studying IBP has had a profound impact on my life - I mean it’s been a game-changer for me. So I really hope you guys find value in this conversation. I’m anxious to hear what you think. 

 

So we got a little carried away and have a monster interview here so I split into two parts -

 

In Part 1 we talk about 

 

  • How Beverly went from a housewife without a college education to a dr in her 40’s
  • Why your same “themes” continue to come up in every relationship 
  • How Beverly and her husband created IBP to make sure that the things that got in the way of their first marriages wouldn’t get in the way of their marriage
  • Why it’s difficult to sustain change… whether it’s in diet, relationships, exercise, bad habits.. etc.
  • The MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do to change an unwanted behavior or pattern
  • How our early childhood wounds directly impact the way we see the world today
  • And why we need to work with our mind AND our body in order to make lasting changes

 

In Part 2:

  • Beverly offers up her #1 piece of relationship advice 
  • we learn how to stop interrupting our happiness
  • The MOST important thing you can do for your child as a parent
  • How to wake up and live from your true self and feel a greater level of aliveness
  • Practices you can use in your relationship to increase connection 
  • And much much more! 

 

SOME QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF BEFORE LISTENING:

 

  • what is a destructive theme or pattern that you bring to your relationships? 
  • And in general, what is an area of sensitivity for you, something that particularly triggers or upsets you?

 

Just take note of them. I think you’ll find it useful to get the most out of these episodes.
