Warning - this episode is deeeeeeeeep. 
In a really good way, like the Santa stocking being deep - kind of way. 
I am at a point in my life where I have very little patience for small talk. I used to feel I was always like that, however, I am finding that more now than ever, I am unable to be in a conversation that is surface level. If you resonate with that - then this podcast is going to rock you, in a - Chris Rock/good kinda way. 
A few of the points we covered (there were so many) and the reason that this interview will rock your socks:
Breaking down how to go beyond our everyday fears
Looking at what our unfoldment is mean to look like on a spiritual level
Breaking dogma and rules around religion and spirituality 
Un-developing ourselves to get to the core of what life is about
Understanding that there is no such thing as worthlessness or deservedness 
Learning to explore, have fun and evolve with life 
Seeing yourself and removing all other illusions
IKYA is the name that this spiritual mentor goes by. I love his direct and practical approach to spiritual unfoldment. He shows the way for people of today who want to cut through the fog of collective beliefs and become awake in a world asleep. IKYA's teachings can be life-changing and will help you find true direction and purpose. His message is often surprising and brings you thought-provoking ideas that can crush your blockages and open your mind and consciousness.

Why James and this episode will blow your mind!

We discuss:

  • That 'life purpose' and happiness are not meant to be independent
  • The power of making a decision and sticking to even the most challenging goals
  • When you focus on a purpose bigger than yourself - anything is possible
  • Defeating cancer and overcoming drug addictions
  • Overcoming bulimia and related behaviours by understanding the cause
  • How silence can amplify love, kindness, and change in our world 
  • Learning that if you want people to listen, don't push; show them, be patience, give love and compassion
  • Facing demons and working through them in solitary

James travels the globe giving free talks to educate about the option of becoming a vegan and helping people understand the suffering of animals to make food, clothing, and entertainment for human beings. He asks himself the confronting question:

"If we don't need to kill and eat animals to be healthy, what are we doing this for?"

At 17 he was diagnosed with leukemia and told he had six weeks to live. Fast forward to beating that disease, getting hooked on a lot of drugs and letting go of them, overcoming Bulimia and being a dedicated personal trainer for almost a decade, James met a man through his work that changed his perspective on eating animals forever.

James brings patience, unconditional acceptance and a down to earth honesty that is very rare, to everything he speaks about. Even if you are completely new to the concept of veganism, have heard amazing or even challenging things against it this interview is worth the listen. I am certain that simply by hearing his journey, and the roller coaster that is his life, it would be impossible to walk away from listening to this episode not be touched in some way, for the rest of your life.

I would to know, would you consider stopping eating animal products after listening to this episode? Why, why not?
