“We are husband and wife and parents to our 2 year old son, Sullivan. We do our best in this journey called life. We strive for excellence, not perfection. We ponder our failures and celebrate our victories. We are human, just like you. We hope that sharing our experiences and the experiences of our guests will help you in some way.”
Casey’s passion for Conscious Living comes from his background in residential home construction. Having built everything from small renovations to major additions to custom homes, he has seen way too much garbage going to landfills. Now, as the President of Cornelis Grey Construction – The Conscious Builder, he is making sure that proper support and systems are being put in place in order to promote conscious, more sustainable building.
Casey’s leadership skills have helped him attract the people required in order to make real change in this world. He has many plans for the future but knows that he can’t do it alone. He understands that we all need to do our part. “All we can do is make sure we do the best we can with what we have and make sure we make the conscious decision,” says Casey. “Remember Newton’s Third Law; For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This means that every thing you do will affect something or someone, somewhere. It’s up to you whether you want that effect to be positive or negative.”
Natasha has a passion for life and all that can become of it. “I am a believer in the human potential and the uniqueness that we all bring,” says Natasha. “I seek others to be inspired and hope to inspire others.”
She has a Master’s degree in Psychology with an expertise in Child and Family Therapy; however, has has made the conscious choice to transition her work from treatment of illness to prevention of illness. She now focuses her time and energy on wellbeing and wholeness. Natasha also has extensive training in nutrition and everyday seeks to learn something that she did not know the day before; something that serves herself and the world at large.
Now, this city boy and small town girl (shout out to Journey) are making sure that they lead by example. Casey’s leadership and environmental experience teamed up with Natasha’s nutrition and psychology experience makes for one heck of a team. They do their very best to live by Mahatma Gandhi’s famous saying, “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” To start this major shift, one of the first moves they did was to build one of Canada’s very few Passive Houses in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In addition to this radical decision, Casey and Natasha make conscious daily choices about what type of food they put into their bodies as well as making sure they move their bodies; daily aerobic exercise, weight training and yoga are their go-tos.
Their son, Sullivan, is a constant reminder that they need to lead by example. They don’t want to do anything that they wouldn’t want their son to do. Natasha shares that “Knowing and doing are very different things. Most of us know what needs to be done but we may not necessarily do it. When Casey and I learn something new, it may be difficult, but deep down we know its the right thing to do – this is what we strive for – doing the right thing even if it is not the easiest.”
“It’s an ongoing process, but my wife and I are always looking for ways to improve ourselves and the lives of the people around us,” says Casey. “We Know it’s a journey and not a destination, as corny as that sounds.”
The Conscious Living Podcast is one of those things that can only create good. Not only will it serve Casey and Natasha, but it will serve it’s guests and it’s listeners. Win/Win/Win.
Whatever your next decision is make sure to make it consciously. Remember, even if you decide not to make a decision, that’s still a decision that, hopefully, you have made consciously!
