Mark Epstein MD

Have you noticed the return of spirituality to science? Psychotherapist Mark Epstein is well known for mapping the ways in which Buddhism can enrich Western approaches to psychology.
Though definitely not an evangelist trying to convert people to Buddhism he has written extensively on western psychology and I would say, widened and deepened, it with his meditation. With whimsical titles such as "Advice Not Given, A Guide To Getting Over Yourself" or "Going To Pieces Without Falling Apart" and "Thoughts Without A Thinker" his books are playful yet astute, wise without pretence. I had a wonderful conversation with a very humble Mark and at the end felt deeply lifted, inspired by a really beautiful human being.

Charles Eisenstein

Charles Eisenstein is one of the world's most exciting new thinkers. The author of 6 books dealing with everything from yogic eating to sacred economics, the ascent of humanity and climate change, the one that really shook the world (and Oprah) was "The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible".

I recently had the great pleasure to have a conversation with Charles. I really encourage you to have a listen, if you're anything like me, I am sure you will find all sorts of wonderful new ideas that will shift some of your entrenched paradigms.

We discussed a wide range of topics from the new story of interbeing that our hearts know is possible to the sacred gift economy. You can find Charles here. Click on his books to buy.






Lisa Smartt

Lisa Smartt is a linguist who recently started the "Final Words Project". Lisa's idea was to capture what we say in the final days before passing and investigate what it might inform us about us, our lives and our deaths.

The results are compelling and I recently had the wonderful opportunity to have a chat with the very generous Lisa. I am sure you'll find it as interesting and inspiring as I did.

She often works with Dr Raymond Moody, the famous author of "Life after Life", the pioneer book about NDE's (near death experiences) who we will be talking to soon. You can find Lisa here. Click on her book to buy
