Creatively Emerging From The Dark Night with Lisa Baker

February 8, 2022

Lisa's life was changed from the inside out when she entered her 9 year journey through the dark night of her soul.  Her relationship to "purpose" completely changed.  

As a life-long painter, she was surprised when she began to see animals and archetypal wisdom appearing in her paintings, returning her to the intrinsic mysticism of her childhood.

  • Her dark night of the soul that lasted 9 years
  • How painting moved from expression to meaning making and spiritual connection
  • Discovering her own way of working with archetypes
  • Moving through uncertainty and not knowing
  • The role of synchronicity and finding mentors

A Spiritual Awakening That Changed Everything with Cathy Black

A Spiritual Awakening That Changed Everything with Cathy Black

January 25, 2022

In 1998 Cathy Black was living in Taos New Mexico as a massage therapist when her inner life began to deepen and open up in a potent way. She then had a spiritual awakening experience that changed everything.

Today, she continues to integrate her awakening into all that she does in the world.  Here she speaks to Julie of the magic and power of synchronicities, serendipities, intuition and what it has been like for her to follow her "intuitive pathway". 

Cathy now offers programs, retreats and meditations through the Lumos Center that support a deeper awakening of embodied presence for individuals and groups.

The Buddha That Transformed 11th Ave with Dan Stevenson

The Buddha That Transformed 11th Ave with Dan Stevenson

January 11, 2022

In 2009 11th Avenue and 19th Street in Oakland was an intersection that attracted garbage dumping, and gatherings of street people whose energy was dark and divisive.  It was in this environment that Dan and Lu Stevenson, living in the neighborhood, got the creative idea to install a Buddha statue on the corner and see if it might change things.  And did it ever! 

Here Dan Stevenson talks with Julie about how their neighborhood was transformed--how the Buddha became a unifying force that shifted the energy of their neighborhood for good.

December 28, 2021

Metis speaker, singer, writer and actor Andrea Menard sees her life as a medicine wheel, her creativity emerging from the four elements of her essential being.  She shares how she made a deal with life early on—she would be courageous and have a voice as long as she was guided by wisdom and her voice helped make the world a better place: "I'm not doing this if I'm not guided.”

Thriving As A Social Entrepreneur With Madeleine Shaw

Thriving As A Social Entrepreneur With Madeleine Shaw

November 30, 2021

"We are living in a linear world and yet we are cyclical beings…We are in an override mode with our nervous systems and our minds…Yes we want solutions that work for the planet AND we need to not drive ourselves crazy or burn ourselves out as we approach those goals." Madeleine Shaw

Madeleine Shaw's new book, The Greater Good, as described on her website, is an inspiring, practical and deeply personal look at a growing movement of non-traditional entrepreneurs whose ventures are focused on creating social and environmental change.

Here, Madeleine talks with Julie about the core elements she writes about in her book and expands our notions of what it can look like to be in business in a way that honors who we are and what we have to give. Her own path from feminist activist to social entrepreneur was a radical shift of focus and put her on a transformational path that continues today.

Madeleine shares from her new book "The Greater Good":
• We are cyclical beings and can design our lives to work with our humanity
• Thriving doesn't have to mean scaling
• Madeleine's first product design was a personal solution to period pads
• Alternative ways to structure your business
• Empowering people on the fringes
• Her vision for the future and the role of everyday people starting businesses that solve the world's problems
