The Amber Hawken Podcast

As the founder of Amber Hawken and Calm Mind Project, Amber questions, unpacks and simplifies the paradox of being a spiritual being in this human experience. In her solo sessions and expert guest interviews, Amber asks the important questions, like, how can we be human with less suffering, and more joy, love, growth, impact and purpose? Through clarity comes understanding and from understanding comes aligned action and wisdom. This podcast interviews experts on life science, spirituality, psychology, relationships, mental, nutritional, physical and emotional wellbeing, and entrepreneurship to alchemise confusion and fear into clarity and aligned action. Each episode has real time transformational exercises and/or techniques that can be integrated into everyday life to ensure maximum impact for the time you invest listening. Each episode will enable you to get back to what’s true and vital; your true nature and how to get there in each moment, over and over again.

I think I may have found one of my favourite humans on the planet. Yep, author of The Good Hustle, Polly McGee is a walking paradox from the get-go. A tattoo-covered yogi who works in the corporate world, this woman has a story that I'm beyond excited to share with you today.

 Here’s why I know you will love this interview. We discuss:

  • The importance of serving others
  • Why she rejects the idea of 'fake it til you make it'
  • Why success is about the collective, not the individual
  • The quickest way to lose the moment you're in
  • Why you don't need to become a better version of yourself
  • The core wounds we all have & the real illusion of them
  • Defining 'Dharma'
  • Rejecting the expectations of the corporate world (especially suits!)
  • Happiness isn't the end goal... it's something else
  • Polly's personal practices for mental discipline
  • What Polly would like to have as a superpower

And so. much. more...

Be It Till You Are It

Whoa. Wasn't that awesome? Told you I found my twin flame. Polly is that passionate about the life-changing magic of meditation practice, that she is offering a copy of her brand spankin' new book, The Good Hustle, to TWO of my beloved listeners (one audio book & one physical book if you're old school like that).

Entering is simple: tell me WHAT your 365-day meditation commitment is + why you're doing it by emailing me at hello@amberhawken.com. Remember to also note which book you'd prefer: audio or physical. Giveaway closes Sunday 31 March.

Vulnerability without strength is fucking chaos. Build foundations within, THEN, open your heart. Strength + vulnerability = Open hearted freedom.

Today’s guest Traver Boehm is the author of Today I Rise, a TEDx speaker and men’s coach, currently practicing intentional nomadism. He is the founder of the Man Uncivilized Movement, redefining the way men around the globe experience their masculinity, and teaches people to skillfully use the inevitable pain of their lives as fuel for growth and positive change.

We cover so much in this episode, from reaching deep into the darkest moment of Traver’s personal life where he found himself losing everything, to Traver’s “The Year to Live Project” that would eventually see him on a 28 day social experiment living in complete darkness and isolation in Guatemala. Traver is as real and honest as they come, and we dive into one my favourite topics, vulnerability, and how combining the Primal Masculine and the Divine is radically shifting the way men experience their masculinity. Because in his words, Men need both, women need men to have both, and the planet needs this more than we do.

Traver’s story, strength and his hunger to get deeply acquainted with what it means to go beyond everything you know to be true about life is infectious, and I could have chatted with him all day. If you’ve ever contemplated on what you would do if this was your last year alive and feel the pull to test your own limitations, this episode is for you!

Dive in to hear more on:

  • How honesty is the new vulnerably
  • Learning how to be vulnerable in a healthy way, as opposed to a destructive way
  • Learning what it is to die and be free
  • How our pain can be our guru
  • The power of pushing beyond your edge and coming back to life
  • How to be honest in your voice and actions
  • Cultivating energy and driving into the direction of love and creativity
  • Sexual energy and its ability to manifest
  • How to own your manhood and mature masculine
  • How to hold space for your partner and not get triggered
  • How to feel into the feminine sensuality and use that for purpose and enhancing relationships
  • Dying and understanding your insignificance in order to really live
  • Leaking energy by fantasizing, and how using stimulants and other distractions can destroy your life and relationships

When you are strong, you can hold space for yourself even when falling apart because you allow yourself too. You are strong in your unconditional love.

Be sure to tune in right to the end where I challenge Traver to 90 days of something very very difficult!

Anger is an emotion that often points to another emotion

Emily Ann Peterson is a singer-songwriter, creative consultant, and author of Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Courageous. In 2013, Emily was diagnosed with a degenerative neurological hand tremor, which forever altered her two-decade livelihood as a cellist/cello teacher. Refusing to lose her life's love of expression, she knew she’d have to be brave, and man, is she that! In an act of neurological defiance, she expanded into wider mediums and broke through her creative glass ceiling, opening the door to limitless possibilities.

I just had to have this woman back on the show (check out this throwback episode with her a year ago) because we always go deeeep in to our personal stories of navigating life's curveballs with humour and honesty.. the only way you get it here with me!

 

Emily offers so much transparency and I adore the work she is bringing to the world. In this conversation, we cover this and more:

  • How to be brave
  • A new way to look at 'readiness' in terms of launching a creative project
  • Her most powerful method of self healing
  • Unpacking what we can do with our anger
  • The ingredients of bravery
  • What to do when we're faced with the feeling of "this is the end of the world"
  • How to identify emotions in your body
  • Why it's important to inspire the emotions we desire to feel
  • What advice she would give to her 15 year old self
  • How we express our truth through mediums other than our voice

 

If you don't understand your desires, you're screwing yourself over

Emily oozes a humble warmth AND a powerful fierceness that fuels her drive to be a catalyst for bravery. I've loved this conversation because we don't cover what's IN her book but the brilliance of the behind-the-scenes of what needed to happen for her book to come together.
