The primal approach is about doing less, better.

This podcast is the epitome of an example of organic self-discovery.

Adam shares how it was one foot in front of the other for him. Listening to the big nudges and following the subtle pulls of what felt right for him and of course, moving towards what was both confronting but liberating.

The adjective primal describes something that’s essential or basic, like the primal urge to protect yourself and your family from harm. The Latin root of primal is primus, which means first. If your friend talks about his primal self, he means the most basic, important part of who he is.

Adam is a living breathing experiment of what it looks and feels like when we strip everything back to the basics.

“After lots of reading, research and curiosity, I was lucky enough to stumble across the caveman diet (paleo). Within a few weeks of starting to eat a more nutrient rich wholefood diet, my health dramatically improved. My thyroid was healing.

As I started to improve more and more, I realised getting back to basics and focusing on the simple things were really important for me. Kicking my shoes off and getting barefoot has been powerful.

Working in the mines gave me a high paying job but I was miserable. Shift work and all-nighters were shitty. It was a scary decision, but I quit my job to travel Australia. I had zero plans but to get back into nature and just immerse myself into some beautiful scenery and see where the road would take me.” – Adam Kavanagh

Some of the points we weave in and out of include:

  • How long Adam hid his symptoms of food intolerances, depression, anxiety attacks and everything else that came with hyperthyroidism.
  • The doctors’ suggestions for a *solution* that lead him to shifting to a paleo diet.
  • Adam’s inner process for leaving the mines: his fears, hesitations, conditioning and action plan.
  • His journey to Africa that was a strategy for his wellbeing and ultimately supported his decision to leaves the mines.
  • What it was like to meet the locals, community and be invited into the indigenous community in outback Australia.
  • His step-by-step process to stripping things back to as clean and simple as possible and the improvement in his wellbeing.
  • What it’s like to eat and live off the land using indigenous tracking techniques, a bow and arrow and fire pit cooking.
  • His three-week experience of being on the reality TV show, Naked and Afraid where he was dropped in the middle of no man’s land in a part of Africa with a woman he’d never met, naked and had to survive without assistance for three weeks.
  • How he survived one of his most confronting encounters in the outback including being ripped up by a wild boar and collecting honey from killer bees.
  • What he believes is the most important skill of all for surviving the outback.
  • What he learned from the land and the indigenous friends he made who now feel like family to him.
  • What he’s now doing (taking people to have bush experiences, working with fire making and re-wilding).

Psychology, embodiment and toxic relationships...

What a subtitle, eh?

Let me begin with a little appreciation for your patience. It's been a minute between podcasts as they draw the short straw when I'm elbow deep in projects. I can assure you, this is worth it. 

Laura Corcoran is a Holistic Psychologist. Her 10 years of experience in the field range from forensic, mental health, and addictions primarily. She's also an incredibly honest, raw, intelligent, kind woman and a Mum of "two light beams", as she puts it.  

This episode is vast in its topic and while it began with the contradictions around some of the principles of psychology, we weave in and out of rabbit holes that most people can relate to including repressed trauma emerging in the *stressful* now of life and toxic bonds in passion relationships. 


  • Trauma that we might not realise is trauma (it's not always how it seems).
  • All of us have in our life experienced a time where what we were feeling was too much.
  • Toxic bonded relationships we think are filled with passion but are bound together by pain.
  • An embodied approach to healing and the basis 
  • The basics that psychology can forget that make all the difference to long term change
  • Sensory experiences, breath and movement for regulation and healing
  • A ton more...

This little quote is from one of Laura's influences, Peter Levine, and somewhat encompasses the point Laura unpacks around the dire need for embodied practices within psychology treatments. 

"If frightening sensations are not given the time and attention they need to move through the body and resolve or dissolve, the individual will continue to be gripped by fear." - Peter A. Levine, Psychologist

Is it worth it?...

I have a really rad friend called Benny and he developed an app based on vice optimisation.

Basically, you check in the next day after getting on the booze and decided if it was worth it or not.

This reflection practice, alone, has proven to support humans in staying in integrity and showing signs of increased happiness by up to 400%.

I actually made that up that stat, but who hasn't been 400% more stoked when they've been able to pause and shift direction from an otherwise destructive path? Exactly.

I borrowed my mate Benny’s idea and held that question up with a magnifying glass to my life and business.

My priority is joy, that's my measuring stick for 'worth it'. Because - joy.

Usually, people look at the return and if it's shiny or powerful looking enough, they sacrifice the juiciness and don't question the burnout factor or the destruction of busyness.

In fact, there's a virus nestled in the minds of humanity that if it had a voice it would say, "The more time and energy you put in, the more worth it, it is. Never mind the collateral damage to your mental health, wellbeing, relationships and happiness - it's the outcome that counts”.

It would also be in Trump's voice…..maybe, I don't know. But you get the idea.

How often are we sacrificing happiness, joy, spaciousness, peace, love and orgasms for a cost we will pay 10 x time, at least, sometime in the future?

I have been known to be guilty of such things and right now is a great time to pull things apart and examine what’s working, honest and fulfilling and what’s not.

Below is a solo-session podcast talking you through the process.

My anthem is - self-lead geniuses for the win. You being the genius, me leading you to the water and you drinking form your own genius pond.

Have a listen here. There is a step by step on the page as well as a 12-minute breakdown of how to do it.

I hope you enjoy looking at the inside of your life; the sacredness and ceremony of energetic  flow itself. 

And while we are on the topic of things that are worth it.

SuperCharged is almost full. All you fence-sitters, let's jump or you will miss it and it'll be sad and you'll have to turn to Ben and Jerry's half baked ice-cream to grieve the spot you didn't claim as yours.


Stpe 1. Grab a piece of paper and split it into three columns.

 Column 1 = list.

Column 2 = is it worth it?

Column 3 = action.

Step 2. Write your list of the following in column 1

  • List all the things you do in a day, week, month and year.
  • List the 10 relationships you invest the most time in.
  • The three things you spend the most money on.
  • List the 10 thoughts that ruminate through your mind.`
  • The top five food/beverages you ingest.
  • The beliefs you am currently choosing to believe about money, time, energy and making stuff happen!

Step 3. Assess what is worth it or not and mark it with a Y or N.

Step 4.  Next to the things that are an N, write what action you will take to either reduce the amount of time/energy/money invested or remove it altogether.

Enjoy. There are no rules, adapt to your life.

Be Honest.

"When I lost the lower half of my leg in an accident, my visions of representing Australia seemed to be destroyed in the blink of an eye. When faced with this situation I had to make a choice, Hide from the world or take it as a challenge and attack it head-on."

Breaking upper limits requires presence,

Today's episode has four different facets of psychology and healing, explored through the life and profession of Dan Kurlapski.

Whilst a physio in a 'past' life, Dan is an NLP(NeuroLinguisticProgramming) Master Practitioner and Trained in Integral Semantic Facilitation. In short - it involves work on how the language we use, both verbal and non-verbal, has a direct connection to the deepest parts of our sub-conscious, where all of our limitations, beliefs and potential to thrive take place.

From Arctic Leadership Wilderness Adventures to running Online Conscious Festivals week one of international lockdown, Dan has a plethora of experience and wisdom in using the very moments that can potentially break us, to stimulate and expand our personal potential.

Dan has travelled the world learning about meditation, developmental psychology, communication and human performance. He believes in connecting the human with their truest expression of self, building their capacity to serve the collective from a healthy, thriving state whilst having a regenerative impact on this planet.


Some of what we cover includes:

The necessity for a plan V the necessity for flow

The body is the gateway to presence

Surrendering in your body, not your mind

Balancing a healthy masculine drive

It's not about mindset, its about openness

The drawbacks of ‘sticking to your guns’

Being open to opportunity is more important than knowing what’s next

The best plan is TRUST

Presence is the catalyst for creation

Resistance is what creates suffering

Listening is key to making the ‘right decision

Seeking distorts your ability to hear

Humans (including men) are relational beings,

This episode explores some of the more hands-on work for men, and the masculine, that is often overlooked, underestimated or displaced by cognitive therapy alone. We dive into the role of relating to the world, others, self, source, emotions and everything as fundamental to rebuilding the divine masculine in a healthy way.

We cover deep and wide avenues in this chat including:

  • What presence and being in ‘flow’ looks and feels like and appreciating the contrast of numbness as a result of a severed connection to source
  • How a lot of men/people surrogate needs of touch and feel with women when they actually need that vital connection with men also
  • How to restore vitality to mens/all beings lives and how to actively be influenced at every level
  • Exploring the patterns in different types of addictions that coincide from a lack of certain needs being met as a child
  • How many attachment styles and codependency habits develop as a result of trauma
  • Exploring the difference between somatic and cognitive therapy; why we need more than speaking in order to heal
  • Denying our nature of being relational beings and how disconnection has been celebrated in men.. and the damage that ensues as a result of this denial
  • Clarifying true power (influence) and control and how control is a lack of trust and shutting down
  • The piece for women in this work is creating openings for men in our world and how to do that
  • Why for some men, it can be exhausting to remove walls and remain vulnerable, even in the face of vulnerability
  • message from Michael for men who get frozen in the face of confronting their own walls and vulnerabilities
  • Why letting yourself feel, be influenced and be affected in relationships is empowering for all

My favourite bit was - all of that. Mainly when Michael talks about how doing this work is a form of activism for the collective rise of our future. 

Please, go and check out Michael's work

Imagine sourcing your sense of power and love from within, forever.

This episode is about how to use intimacy, with self and others, in order to move through pain, discomfort and resistance to create a life of fulfilment and truest expression as a sovereign being. 

Sovereignty in its most simple form is being self-governed. You are not swayed or lead by internal or external environments. You are the leader, the creator and the seer of your world and life, period.

Not only is woman exceptionally fierce and an embodiment of love, but she is also a dear friend of mine who I've been energetically held by. I know the power of her insights and light and am delighted to share them with you all.

From Court,

"I'm Courtney McNabb. I'm a women's Empowerment Coach and Feminine Energy Repatterning Trainer touring the world activating women in their fierce feminine power.

Between and during global ventures, I work with female spiritual leaders and seekers across the globe. My mission is to activate an unshakable internal world and to align high-vibrational energetic behavioral patterns with sacred purpose. I help women dissolve wounded stories which keep them feeling scarce, stuck, and limited.

My home base in Denver, Colorado, where I love creating community and drinking oat milk lattes. I specialize in Sovereignty and the Sacred Feminine, love plant dancing to gangster rap and adventuring the mountains with my boyfriend and baby sister."

The bottom line of the interview explores the following (and then some):

  • What does sovereignty mean?
  • How your thoughts, actions, mess are yours..and then what’s beyond that?
  • Moving beyond our personality structure
  • Free will and how to exercise your power of choice
  • Burning the pushing paradigm
  • Holding yourself and landing in your body when we are re writing codes in our consciousness
  • The work is invisible and where our invitation is
  • The rejection of ‘trust’ is the old masculine..and something to embrace
  • Knowing your kingdom to govern it
  • Understanding we have operated from the wounded feminine and what it takes to shift that
  • Grieving adjustments as a man to embracing the feminine energy
  • The key to unlocking the leverage of connection and surrender to source and flow
  • Noticing the wounded marline and feminine within and how do the divine versions interplay
  • Integrating all four parts of our divinity into one
  • Trusting ideas, inspirations and goals as a GUIDE to your life not a ‘pipe dream’
  • How we are fearing the divine love of the feminine which is the opposing force magnetic to the patriarchy..which is what we are dissolving
  • How to release analysis, paralysis, control and judgment through this work
  • Allowing this all to be simple, releasing control and contraction and order to own your true power

We did this live in Costa Rica on the second last day of a retreat she was running that I dropped into to say hi and connect with her and our mutual friends and her co-hosts, Jeremy Goldberg and Traver Boehm. 

Yes, life is delicious. Both Leila and I get lost in the flow of this topic and forget multiple times we are even on a podcast recording. We both share intimate experiences we’ve had unpacking some pretty messy times in our hearts and minds so you have real-life examples of how to do some of the work from birth to now that will help you lift and raise your vibration. 

We unpack in detail the powerful philosophies of yoga, the soul, trauma, healing and practical techniques to build internal connection, energy and overall re-integration of ourselves as a whole being. 

I know, right? Fucking rad. 

Some of my fav points covered:

  • Discerning what it is to be a human and the connection between infinite and our human sense of “me”.
  • The three aspects of the soul; “Sat Chit Ananda” (Satcitānanda, Satchidānanda, or Sat-cit-ānanda (Sanskrit: सच्चिदानन्द) ?
  • The connection between stimulus addiction, lack of presence and fulfilment and our ignorance to our true nature
  • Why we need to know who/what we really are in order to amplify joy, peace, love and all the good feels.
  • Working with the mind, our mental mood and voice and getting right with the mind.
  • How to practice self-healing and trauma release.
  • Taking personal responsibility to the inventory of our decisions, macro actions, thoughts and sanskaras 
  • What you need in order to love self and of others
  • Strengthing discipline through our own “stoking of fire”
  • The shadow of self and spiritual growth and how to check-in if its playing out in your life
  • Why consistency and self-trust in your life for strength and freedom
  • How painful events in the past, unprocessed, can lead to feeling hollow, emptier and even affect self-esteem, happiness and wellbeing
  • How to cultivate our own inner energy to utilise, channel and work through something greater than ourselves. 
  • When Leila described step by step how she re-integrated parts of her being that she had left behind throughout her life and overcome multiple different fears,  traumas and insecurities
  • Taking your practices from about “me” to about “we” in order to find courage, discipline and 
  • The most simple tool for making decisions that will either fill you or drain you. 


Before making any decision, especially tough ones, place your hand on your heart and take five deep breaths first.

Are you leading or are you being lead?

And whatever the answer….is it a conscious decision.

This podcast made me hurt from laughing and cracked me open with its truth.

It's with the brilliant,  Traver Boehm.

Traver 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 around the globe experience their masculinity by uniquely blending both the Primal Masculine with the Divine.

What I love about this podcast is that I know in my heart of hearts, just by listening people will have some profound shifts and life insights.

Traver is the kind of man that makes the feminine feel safe because, within himself, he’s done, and continues to do the integration work of his shadows. But most of all, he’d be too humble to say so.

In this episode, we unpack the history of masculine trauma, the light, dark and gold of the shadows and the evolutionary consciousness and importance of our collective healing.

We unpack how he came to write his freshly published and genuinely soul-awakening book, The Uncivilised Man.

A few of  the many points we cover:

  • How the masculine unconsciously or consciously outsource their emotional healing to the feminine
  • What's in the shadows of the collective masculine
  • What a man can do to make a woman feel safe
  • The history of how men became civilised, suppressed and traumatized and the ripple effect that we are now facing.
  • The devil and savior of social media and its connection to depression and healing
  • How the birth of the Civilised concept evolved from a conversation about Mc Donalds.
  • What a shadow is and how to find the gold in the shadows and or reclaim the power that’s maybe there
  • The red flags that there is trauma to be worked through and how it plays out in a relationship and life
  • How the masculine shadow triggers the feminine shadow and how the feminine can make the moves first to catalyse healing
  • What steps you can take to heal and move towards the truest most conscious version of yourself?
  • Compassion, compassion and more compassion.

Find someone you can trust and have an honest conversation with, and share what your written reply to this question is (writing for one minute) “if my pain could speak to me today it would say”…

Pain has depth, you have to go to a depth to reach pain. 

You have to breathe to find it and then breathe to heal it.

So, loves...

If you want real life examples of what it takes, looks and feels like to re-parent, heal, transcend the destructive behaviours that kept us safe as children but sacrifice our true selves as adults, this is your podcast. 

Kylie McBeath is the Co-Founder of Zura Health, Writer, Emotional Wellness Coach, and a spokesperson for soul. She is committed to uncovering the tools, technology, and ethos to live a life at the bleeding edge of our potential. From inner struggles to moments of complete bliss, Kylie invites us to the depths of our own shadow so that we can integrate, accept, and become the most aligned version of ourselves. Her mission is to create a world that is in harmony with all of life’s expressions by simply being her raw, vulnerable, and human AF self.

What I feel you'll vibe the most with in this episode:

  • The road out of sabotage is liberating, but it comes with your whole body having to go through  the motions of fear and "death".  
  • It's a process which we face on a human level as we collectively shift from powerlessness to  reclamation
  •  Examining "death" and our survival strategies that are no longer in alignment with our highest
  • Stepping out of punitive consciousness and cultivating practical practices to support this growth
  • Tools and techniques that you can use right now to help you sustain your new choices and beliefs when it feels scary and impossible
  • Exploring how boundary setting is a process that requires action and consequence not just verbal explanation
  • Unpacking the different ways in which our feeling 'not enough' unless we receive or do X, Y and Z can show up in the masculine (yang) and feminine (yin) imbalance
  • That we are all human, supporting and navigating this life and how powerful it can be to learn the lesson of asking for support, being radically honest with yourself and most of all, how to do this

This episode is so personal because well, it's something we all go through as humans and both Kylie  and I are real about this. We both know that expressing out  own journeys as well as sharing  advice, tools and techniques to do  this powerful work yourself are equally as important. W

We will definitely have a part two on this one!

For now, here is where to get more of Ky...

Reconnect to yourself, your inner-child and all the part within you. In stillness, validate all of the parts of  yourself that feel alone, unloved, unworthy. place your hand  on your body and give these parts of yourself hands on love, support and energy from within yourself, DAILY.

Be patient, love. 

If you’d like to bloom, you must first be willing to be buried. 

Sit in the mud, let it wash over you, let the tears wash you clean, step into the freedom of your pain and let it cleanse you of blame and then, watch your confidence rise up and present itself love. 

After overcoming a life full of trauma, physical and sexual abuse, near-death experiences, breaking her back and being widowed, Erika Cramer found herself drowning in pain and sadness trying to numb everything she had been through. These life changing experiences finally lead her to life coaching where she went on a deep path to personal growth and healing. As a confidence coach she is here to guide women to living a life where they seek progress, not perfection. She is taking a bold stand for women owning their throne and reclaiming their confidence.

What I loved most about this episode is that Erika wanted to lick my face and I wanted to lick hers.

Translation: We vibed, and these kinds of conversations are full of flow, soul, insight and deep transformation for listenings. 

We touched on:

  • How patience and perseverance through the rough shit is where confidence is learnt and cultivated. 
  • If you dont choose to connect with others through transparency and honesty, you will feel more alone and helpless, and will stunt your expansion and burry your esteem. 
  • Trust in self and life is built by committing to doing the work, and then acting on it. 
  • Ownership of your experience should not be as simple as a Pinterest quote on a wall;  it's about deep healing, purging and profound insight that comes from all of the above. 
  • Responsibility is not bypassing; you cannot be grateful and use your painful experiences until you've transcended the hurt and victim mentality. 
  • Purpose through hardship and experience is the result of first becoming uncomfortable and then choosing, with an attitude of oneness, to share, teach and support others. 

It is deeply delicious and it's going to rock your mind and heart. Listen to the episode here:

I got so excited that I forgot the challenge questions SO, I'm going to make one for you. 

Go and read, “Loving What Is”, by Byron Katie. I'm dead serious, it's a wicked and essential read to accelerating self reflection and self awareness. It's also very freeing.

Let's talk mens integrity and mental health.

We are all connected to men in some way. We all have (or had) a father, we may have male siblings, friends, or intimate relationships, and we’re all intimately connected and affected by the mental wellbeing and integrity of men past, present and future. 

Part of the discussion of working through oppression and repression and patriarchy is how to prevent this from happening and help heal the unconscious within each person (specifically men in this podcast) that’s fuelling this in the first place. It’s being present with how this was created, building unity rather than separation from what we want to change, and support this through voice, action, unconditional love and expression. We need to heal together, not apart.

Mike is a men’s coach, author, and wannabe professional stone fruit eater. Mike is the founder of The School of Personal Mastery – a group coaching program for everyday men wanting to get their shit together and achieve greater success and happiness in their career, relationships, and life - without the guilt and hang-ups. 

With loving straight talk, Mike passionately makes personal development relatable, accessible, and applicable for everyday men to better help themselves and others. He is also the creator of Beyond The Beers, a show and series of live events for men taking a beer with mates to new depths, and actually talking about the shit that matters.

The dynamics of this interview shifts gears rapidly as we cover:

  • What does it mean when you ask a man “Who are you?” and how this question is not a judgement, but an invitation that will move you towards what you may not know you’re missing.
  • Understanding that avoidance or stimulation is a symptom of moving away from what we really need to pay attention to. Avoidance takes us in circles. 
  • Examples of what it means to be in integrity with yourself as a man; thoughts, actions, words and life itself. 
  • The struggles most men find themselves spinning around in and to identify where you are and what the next step may be.
  • Why feeling stuck and going nowhere is the perfect place to begin a deeper inquiry.
  • Specific questions to be able to reflect on when you feel stuck.
  • How to move from head to heart to be able to hear oneself, hold space and transcend emotions, deepen self connection and get to know yourself better.
  • Indoctrination to what it is to “be a man” and how we can ask the right questions to break away what no longer serves a man who wants to live in integrity. 
  • How radical responsibility for emotions and self growth are fundamental to the collective healing.
  • The relationship between masculine and feminine in a relationship and how our partners can reflect back our self deceptions.

Okay, more of Mike,

There is nothing more delicious than a conversation with someones heart, not their head.

  • How to overcome negativity, criticism and rejection with a simple turn around thought
  • The simple tools he uses to work through dark times, negative thoughts and the fear of judgment of others
  • His experience with meditation, breath work, mindfulness and coaching and how he uses really simple practices to support a positive mindset and overcome fear on a day to day basis

  • His experience of a deep euphoria through his practices and how he uses this to achieve his goals
  • The advice he as for artists/anyone standing in the face of  fear and following their dreams
  • A VERY powerful action step for unlocking potential that we can all start doing right now

Let's talk about Reclaiming Anger!

My guest today is truly in the business of challenging the status quo, and in her own words, gets even the most stubborn of us grooving into an ass shaking + move making state of mind.

Angel Phoenix Arsenal (previously known as Angela Gallo) is on the podcast today with myself and my biz sidekick Tara Caetano (stay tuned for an upcoming solo interview with her soon), to help us reclaim our anger and open our minds up to our privilege, in a way that activates change for the future.

A little more about Angel:

  • Angel Phoenix Arsenal is a Melbourne Doula who has turned her obsession with all things birth, motherhood, sexuality, women's work, social media, justice-for-all, personal growth, passionate professional development and challenging-the-status-quo mindset, into an empire of inspiration.

  • She is gregariously enthusiastic about creating monumental spaces where cis women, non-binary
    and/or non cisgendered women can come to play in BIG ways. She is also infatuated with all things powerful business strategy and principles, as well as the positively productive use of social media to successful, amplify your brand and business. Her instagram @the_angela_gallo is most certainly a playground of inspiration that you must explore.

  • Angel also trains Doulas. And not just any kind of Doulas, either. Fierce, impassioned, unique, devoted-to-the-cause, resilient, visionary, trailblazer type of Doulas – the kind committed to bringing the humanity, connection and compassion back to a multitude of thresholds Doulas hold space for. Doulas who travel to the brinks of places where all hope is lost, and bring humanity back to the barren. 

In this episode we dive into:

  • Demystifying the topics of oppression, self-suppression and the ways we have been taught to feel unsafe in our anger
  • How the "good girl" mentality and not feeling 'oppressed enough' keeps us from participating in conversations that need to be had
  • How anger serves a purpose in activating change, and how not engaging with the oppressive nature of our society is privilege in full action
  • How to discover what you're truly passionate about
  • How to have a healthy relationship with your anger, in a way that amplifies your work and cultivates confidence and conviction, vs. keeping yourself in a counter productive victim mindset


Each episode of The Amber Hawken Podcast comes with a challenge and in this episode Angel challenges you to have the hard conversations:

How can you initiate the uncomfortable conversations, both in real life and on social media?

How can you ask better of those you know? Where are you letting things slide?

How can you back these conversations up with action?

Email and tell us about your results and or experience with this (we may not reply, but always here to listen and keep you energetically accountable).

As always, we adore hearing what you think of each episode and appreciate all your itunes ratings and comments on the podcast, so if you enjoyed it, please let us know by giving us a five star and leaving a review. You can head over to your favourite platform to do this and subscribe - iTunes, Spotify, Libsyn.

More epic episode are on the way. Until then...

My guest today is a repeat offender (guest) on the podcast.

What I love most about this podcast is how much change I know is possible for anyone who listens to it.

The conversation style of Jer and I becomes a crazy in depth banter where we take things to a deep level of understanding and embodiment, fast. It's just how we roll which is why I am so damn excited to announce the Ignite Your Life retreat we are running in August together in Byron Bay. Check it out here. 

Okay, a little background on Jer,

The man himself is a:

  • TEDx speaker trying to make kindness cool. Watch the TEDx talk here.

  • PhD scholar who spent the past five years studying the science of human behaviour, specifically how attitudes affect action and how we can communicate to inspire greater and lasting change.

  • A spoken word poet who rants about love, life, and everything in between. Watch his most recent viral video here.

  • Instagram and beautiful words @longdistancelovebombs
  • A compassion-cultivating, day-making change agent, a kind heart, someone who believes in you.

The major take aways you'll get from this episode encompass:

  • why human beings find it so difficult to change and how to get leverage on yourself to ease that grind
  • it's not about massive action (even though sometimes it is), it's about the little things (which we dive into everyday examples of small changes for massive results)
  • what it really takes to turn your investment of time, energy, money and 'hopes' into actual action despite a lifetime of resistance and patterning
  • how to call yourself out on your own bs
  • the most effective to to make change stick
  • what kind of damage self denial, rejection, shame and guilt about not being good enough can do and how to spot when this is playing out in your life even though it's terrifying to face at times
  • lots of jokes, dirty ones, bad ones, sad ones, ones that no one but ourselves will laugh at....


Jul 3, 2019

Oh man. Welcome and thanks for being here.

It's been almost 15 months since I last released an episode and Im stoked you are here.

This episode is a solo session with myself where I will be teaching something that is the core of what I bring to any event, workshop, one on one session, retreat, corporate event and of course my own personal practice; self connection.

In this episode I take you through:

  • The different associate elements of intuition, thought, feelings, emotions, motivation, action and results
  • How to increase the fire for change towards what you want to expand on and create on in your life
  • What prevents us following through with ideas of change
  • The loop of negativity we often unconsciously find ourselves in and how to reverse it
  • Explanation of self connection on a practical level
  • How to use the breath to release tension or built up emotions
  • How to use our breath to bring the mind, body, feelings/emotions and nervous system into balance
  • A meditation that you can use anytime to come into your centre and connect to the present moment, recalibrating your mind, body and emotions with calm
  • My background and different businesses I have that are relevant to what I'm teaching in the podcast

Guys, Im so bloody glad to be back.
