Ellie Knaus and DaughterAre you a mom who questions your abilities, decisions, and actions as a parent? Welcome to parenting!

We all have our fair share of struggles, expectations, and unconscious beliefs about ourselves, but there is nothing more raw then when our children bring all this up for us. In those (usually very painful) moments we can either acknowledge it and take responsibility or we can continue to create an unconscious environment for our children.

This weeks’ episode is all about mommy life! Ellie Knaus and I discuss the messiness, the beauty, the challenges and the blessings that all come with raising the next generation in these modern times.

This episode is filled with humour and reassurance that we are all doing the best we can at any given time and that is enough! Leave your high expectations of being able to do it all at the door, ladies.

Satyen Raja 1This week’s episode is all about intimate relationships. Satyen Raja and I get to the core of what is really causing the breakdown of our relationships and how we can salvage, repair and even prevent breaking up in the first place.

Satyen breaks down for us what being masculine and feminine means and how to figure out which one is our core essence.

Meet John Prendergast

Have you ever had a “gut feeling?” Do you listen to that “gut feeling when you experience it?”

In this episode, Dr. John Pendergast states that “our bodies have a natural sense of truth.” By listening to our bodies, we can connect with our felt sense of “inner knowing” – that deep intelligence available through our bodies. He shows us how we can integrate the gifts of our inner knowing into every aspect of daily life.

We also explore how our shadows can be used as portals; in other words, how our dark and painful feelings and sensations can point us toward a radiance within.

Plus, we learn about the somatic qualities of our inner knowing and how these quiet signs can guide our choices.

Robbie Vorhaus 2Robbie Vorhaus’ path is very inspiring and also sounds very common (at least the first part of his story). On the outside, Robbie’s life appeared ideal: a New York City Park Avenue apartment, a home in the Hamptons, two adoring children in world-class private schools, and a thriving PR agency representing world leaders, celebrities, sports stars, entrepreneurs and Fortune 500 companies. Privately, though, his life was falling apart.

A marriage in trouble, jeopardized health, and financial pressures culminated on vacation when his family asked: “Dad, are you really happy?” Realizing he was in peril of losing everything he held dear, Robbie courageously followed the advice he had given clients for decades: Follow your heart. Choose to be happy. Consciously make everything better than you found it.

The result: Robbie closed his agency, moved his family to their small Sag Harbor home, started a leadership and crisis consultancy, and began anew.

Now transformed, healthy, happy, and celebrating a marriage of more than 25 years, Robbie shares how he overcame his struggle and how you can to! Robbie has a very interesting perspective on how we can begin slowly (sustainably) to change our behaviour toward living a more fulfilled life – One less. One more.


Meet Robbie Vorhaus

Robbie Vorhaus is widely recognized as one of the top three leadership, communications, reputation and crisis experts and advisors in the world. Vorhaus is the best-selling author of the critically acclaimed, transformational book, One Less. One More. Follow Your Heart. Be Happy. Change Slowly. (Storytelling, Inc., 2014) Robbie Vorhaus is also a frequent media contributor, public speaker and teacher on authenticity and the clarity of purpose and vision.

Marianne Williamson - Show

Marianne Williamson is a New York Times bestselling author, world-renowned speaker and one of the most influential spiritual leaders of our time. In her latest book, Tears To Triumph, and during our interview, Marianne makes clear that true healing can only come when we finally face our pain and become curious about what is has to teach us.

Instead of allowing ourselves to acknowledge our hurt, we numb it, medicate it, dismiss it, or distract ourselves in some way in order to never face it. When we refuse to look at our suffering, we actually prolong it and deny ourselves the wisdom that is being offered, which ultimately limits our personal growth and opportunity for enlightenment.

Marianne offers a powerful way forward through our pain into a deeper awareness of our feelings, our experiences, and our true selves.

This show is a must listen for anyone who is feeling overwhelmed, scared and even hopeless about something in your life right now. May you find comfort and peace knowing that you are not alone and that everyone feels this way from time to time.


Meet Marianne Williamson

Marianne Williamson is an internationally acclaimed spiritual author and lecturer. Marianne has been a popular guest on television programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, Good Morning America, Charlie Rose & Bill Maher. Seven of her twelve published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. Four of these have been #1. The mega best seller A Return To Love is considered a must-read of The New Spirituality. A paragraph from that book, beginning “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure…” is considered an anthem for a contemporary generation of seekers.

Marianne’s other books include The Law of Divine Compensation, The Age of Miracles, Everyday Grace, A Woman’s Worth, Illuminata, Healing the Soul of America, A Course in Weight Loss, The Gift of Change, A Year of Miracles, and her newest book, Tears to Triumph: The Spiritual Journey from Suffering to Enlightenment, available now.

Marianne is a native of Houston, Texas. In 1989, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. To date, Project Angel Food has served over 10 million meals.  Marianne also co-founded the Peace Alliance. And she serves on the Board of Directors of the RESULTS organization, working to end the worst ravages of hunger and poverty throughout the world.

According to Time magazine, “Yoga, the Cabala and Marianne Williamson have been taken up by those seeking a relationship with God that is not strictly tethered to Christianity.”

Koy McDermottThis week’s guest, Koy McDermott, shines light on this idea of the “Millennial Dilemma” and demonstrates that not only is it something that is sweeping the nation by storm, but how it is creating a big shift in the way we seek out a livelihood.

Being a millennial himself and working with hundreds of fortune 500 companies, he found that while it was fun and paid the bills, he knew there was much more he was here to do. Today, rather than helping businesses grow, Koy’s real passion is to help people grow.

Koy shares his story of what it was like to become a parent, but not having a father figure himself growing up. He also talks about the word ‘FAIL’ and what that really means to him as well as how to apply and actualize the information that we learn.


Meet Koy McDermott

Koy has a massive passion for changing lives and has been obsessed with business since he was a child. After years of working with hundreds of Fortune 500 companies he found that helping businesses grow was fun, but helping PEOPLE GROW was his real passion. Koy is actively combating the “Millennial dilemma” that so many Millennials face. He prides himself on helping people create profitable businesses through proven strategies, which has sparked massive attention in the education space.

Guy FinleyHave you ever felt like there is more to life than what meets the eye? Today’s guest sure has and he is here to remind us of what that is. Guy Finley has a lot to say about what it means to be conscious of our life and how that impacts the quality of it.

He shares with us how we can enhance our level of self-reliance through self-illumination in order to override fear and hatred and also free ourselves of limitations that create within us feelings of anger, depression, and anxiety. Guy shows us how we can experience more compassion, love and kindness in life!
