Spiritual pussy and bedroom jungles with Alphachanneling

Spiritual pussy and bedroom jungles with Alphachanneling

If you’re like me you might ask, where has imagination gone? We seem to have forgotten that muscle. How to even tap what’s really inside us. It’s sort of amazing when you think about it, we’re born into a world where there are tuning forks on any topic that pump out a story about what that topic should be— how we should think, feel, and behave when it comes to marriage, love, money, work, religion— or really any topic. 

So we find ourselves trying to adjust our harmony to those other tuning forks. We’re reacting to them. We’re trying to make them happy. We’re trying to satisfy all of the demands that those containers and shapes are asking us to conform to. 

It’s almost impossible to get in tune with reality. There’s a lot of guests on this show that have talked about how fake everything we’ve created really is and certainly that is true when it comes to one of the most fundamental topics: our sexuality. How we encounter and express intimacy— physically, emotionally, spiritually, and cosmically— with someone else. How we share it and what it should look like.

Avoid Silicon Valley's “bro bubble” with CEO Anne Bonaparte

Avoid Silicon Valley's “bro bubble” with CEO Anne Bonaparte

Lately there’s a lot that’s been published about the lack of diversity within the Silicon Valley tech community which have been generally populated by a lot of young, white guys and for the most part, still are. So, I was excited to have Anne Bonaparte on the show. I invited her about 8 months ago to come in and chat a little bit about being a mid-stage CEO not just because she's a woman not in her 20s, but really just because she’s outstanding at her job and understands how diversity can come from all sorts of places. Anne’s point of view about how to create healthy conflict at the workplace, and a productive, diverse environment for growth couldn’t be more true today then it was when we chatted eight months ago. 

How I talked hundreds of jumpers off the ledge with Sgt. Kevin Briggs

How I talked hundreds of jumpers off the ledge with Sgt. Kevin Briggs

At least once a week for almost 20 years, Sgt. Kevin Briggs would stand just a few feet away from a severely depressed person who had climbed over the rail in the middle of the Golden Gate bridge and was a step away from falling to their death. While they both stood there with noisy traffic and cold, strong wind creating insane vibrations, Kevin had to find a way to do whatever he could to break through and get people to decide to climb back. We all have moments of despair so I hope that, in this brief conversation with the man who’s become known as the “Guardian of the Golden Gate,” you can borrow from the powerful technique and messages that he used too help hundreds of people save themselves.

Shark Tank winners open bakeries, marriage and home with Shannon and Florian Radke

Shark Tank winners open bakeries, marriage and home with Shannon and Florian Radke

The last thing that Florian and Shannon Radke are afraid of risk. They had the entrepreneurial balls to not only start and successfully grow an unusual business but to hustle themselves onto Shark Tank (and win btw). Their strong point of view on ethical veganism-- for example-- has not only been foundational in starting their own company, but they’ve invested that same energy into PETA, into helping bring important movies to life like Cowspiracy, which had Leonardo DiCapreo’s as executive producer. You should check it out on Netflix, btw.
