“Those we love don’t go away they sit beside us every day” — Liane Moriarty

I had the honor of speaking with Grace Kelly on this week’s Insightful Conversations. Grace generously agreed to come on to the show to share her story of love and loss, having recently lost her beloved fiancé, Francesco. Francesco, a healthy young man, unexpectedly died from a heart attack back on December 5th, 2020. As fresh as Grace’s pain is, she wanted to share her experience of how the loss of Francesco has impacted her life. Grace says she feels compelled to share her story…

Women united in spiritual circles will awaken the wisdom in each other’s spirit — Shikoba

This week, I enjoyed chatting with my lovely friend and colleague, Andrea Vallely, on my Insightful Conversations show. Andrea and I talked about many things, including the 8-Week Women’s Wellbeing Mastermind we co-facilitate. When Andrea first asked me if I would be interested in working together, I immediately said yes. I didn’t know Andrea very well, but I knew enough to know there was something very special about her. Andrea exudes pure love and joy. Both her smile and laugh are infectious, as is her…

Over the course of those years, Bill and Connie noticed that many of the people they worked with were successful in losing…

“When we are spiritually bypassing, we often use the goal of awakening or liberation to rationalize what I call premature transcendence: trying to rise above the raw and messy side of our humanness before we have fully faced and made peace with it.” ― Ram Dass

On this week’s Insightful Conversations, I replayed a show I first aired back in early 2020. My guest was a fellow 3 Principles coach and a client of mine, Marina Pearson. Out of the hundred-plus I.C. shows for me to choose from, I decided to rerun this one because it deals with a subject…
