the first time i met her, i asked her to share her experience of a journey she took as i was about to set out on a trip to speak to those no one speaks to and listen to those no one listens to. here is the advice she gave me:

though the voice of the many, the voice of the one is shared. the trip i was taking had to be completely for me, if no-one ever saw it, if no one ever funded it, it would be enough.

she shared with me, her journey was stepping out of a life that she was supposed to live into finding who she was; it meant not being always what she should be and discovering who she wasn’t; she went willing to be all the things she wasn’t, willing go on an adventure. and when she said this one simple sentence, it really affected me: 

“everything in life is a reflection of us speaking to us about us.”

every person i met, everything that came to me was coming to me to speak to me about me. she told me, i took the rebel road, to take the journey of the unknown, no agenda, but purely to express my own voice and i knew the universe would lead me on its own way.

this was purely for me. the world does not need me to change it. when i spoke to people, i said, i am not here for you, i am here for me. by the end of the journey, (7 months on the road with her children) but and experience that lasted seven years. there was so much light in those seven months that it opened up everything cellular, ancestral, that could be opened up in darkness. she went into the darkness, into the pain, into the doubt, into all the things we try to avoid going into and when she emerged after 7 years, the darkness was gone.

you can clearly see why i was excited to speak more with Simran. i was a guest on her show which i loved. here is the link to that show:

here is what we talked about on The Mosaic Podcast:

  • the connection we feel even though we have never met in person
  • what it means to be an ordinary person having extraordinary experiences
  • a discussion on ordinary and extraordinary
  • growing up too quick, working in her family business, and believing that if she worked hard she would be loved
  • the process of deadening herself to doing what others wanted of her
  • the crack of ego that happens when things get too hard
  • the pain and beauty of the crack
  • discovering what it means to serve herself AND others, who are we, what do we want, what does the soul desire?
  • the excruciating pain of ripping off the mask that is glued to your face and cracking the ego that hides the soul.
  • feeling the space between the irritation of the false that was created and the truth of the soul
  • allowing what is new to emerge and allowing the mask under the mask under the mask to be cracked
  • as we become less of who we were, we tap into more of the truth of what we are
  • it is not who we are but what we are
  • all of the cracking that is taking place is the casting aside of all of the adornments so that we can walk through the door of our own humanity
  • the pain of letting go of who we were vs. remembering what we are and what is coming.
  • the bridge between here and there
  • the past is in a box and the new can’t be confined
  • 99.99% of us are unconscious 99.99% of the time. even the most conscious of those amongst us.
  • be present to the moment and whatever that moment offers. pain, pleasure, despair, etc.  this moment takes you to the next moment.
  • instead of figuring out how to experience the pain and to not let it overcome her, she choose to invite the experience of the pain TO overcome her
  • being in the feeling of her tears and her knees buckling and knowing what it was there to give her
  • curling up in the presence of this wound and allowing the wound to heal her.
  • what appeared in her life had gold in it
  • knowing the true light that was in the center of that darkness,  that all the light she was experiencing was artificial lighting and she wanted to know true, real light that shows what the darkness looks like
  • and sooooooo much more

Ep 099 Every Moment Is Sacred feat. Padma Gordon

By | Podcast

Sep 25, 2020

THIS SHOW IS SPONSORED BY THE MOSAIC to learn more and to buy the book please go to: www.TheMosaicOnline.com or go to amazon: http://a.co/dvgsgG3

Padma Gordon is a Spiritual Guide, Embodied Mindfulness Counselor, author and lover of life who invites people to deepen their connection to body, heart, and soul. She teaches about relationships through the lens of awakening. Her new book is called, “Being Together: Practical Wisdom for Loving Yourself and Your Partner.”

i was amazed at how much we shared in common and how in one conversation we could go s deep.  this was one of the few conversations i have had where we both held the space for the other to be loved and accepted, listened to and heard and acknowledged and validated.  it is what she does in the work she does too.

we spoke of:

the spaces between the words

the beauty of words, but there is something far more in the work we do for people that happens beneath the words

we spoke of time and space and how she feels it dissolving

we spoke of the power that comes when we can be together

Every moment is sacred including the less preferable ones

and so much more

but more than the words we spoke, you will feel the vibration between us as you enter into the sacred space of two space holders.

when i asked her, if you could say one thing to a world that was listening, what would you say, she answered,
I would say: Be present. Every moment is sacred including the less preferable ones. Life is a celebration. Be a devotee of Love and Loving. Life is short. Know that you are enough and trust that you are loved.
This is a podcast you will want to hear.

Ep 097 Love Is Just Damn Good Business with Steve Farber

By | Podcast

Sep 3, 2020

THIS SHOW IS SPONSORED BY THE MOSAIC  to learn more and to buy the book please go to: www.TheMosaicOnline.com or go to amazon: http://a.co/dvgsgG3

Steve Farber is Ranked on Inc.’s Global Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts list, Steve Farber is a Wall St Journal best-selling author and the founder and CEO of The Extreme Leadership Institute. His first book, The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership, was named one of the 100 Best Business Books of All Time. His new book, Love Is Just Damn Good Business, has been listed by Book Authority as one of the top business strategy books of 2020.he says, “Promoting Love Is Just Damn Good Business”  and invites you to receive a  free LEAP Assessment at www.loveisgoodbiz.com

Steve believes, It’s time to toss aside the touchy-feely notions of love in business and recognise the real power it holds. Love is not only appropriate in the context of business, it’s the foundation of great leadership, and, therefore, the very foundation of a thriving, competitive enterprise. When love is part of an organization’s framework and operationalized in its culture, employees and customers feel genuinely valued. Employees who are passionate about the work that they do are more loyal, innovative, creative, and inspired, and that translates to great customer experience. They don’t serve others out of obligation, but because of a genuine desire to improve people’s lives. And when customers reciprocate by loving your products, your services, and your people, that’s when something great happens. That’s when you get loyalty. That’s when you get raving fans. It’s a refreshingly human way of doing business.

this is one of those pivotal conversations that you just have to listen to.  it was unique not only in the conversation we had but in the application of how to introduce love into the business arena. choosing speak about love as the passion you have for what you are do and the feeling you have for the products and services that you offer, rather than speaking from a place of having to love yourself first or love your team, he brings that culture of love in in a way that corporate people can understand and thens peaks of what happens when your team says, “i love working here.” and your clients say, “ i love what these people do.”

does that mean that everything becomes perfect. listen in to and out. this is a beautiful conversation and one in which Steve, like many others that i interview comments on the uniqueness of the questions and feel of the interview.

i highly encourage you to visit his websites and spend some time there and inviting Steve to come and do a presentation for your team.

Ep 096 Reinventing The Planet with David Gershon

David has dedicated his life to empowering humanity to believe we can create the world of our dreams and designing the strategies and tools to help us make this a reality. He is putting this aspiration and second order knowledge into action through a bold plan to change the world called: “Reinventing the Planet.”

David Gershon, co-founder and CEO of Empowerment Institute has been called “the number one expert on social change.” He applies his visionary leadership and social change expertise to designing second order change solutions for cities, countries and the planet that enable the seemingly impossible to become possible. Over the past four decades the initiatives he’s designed have won many awards and achieved much recognition.

David has dedicated his life to empowering humanity to believe we can create the world of our dreams and designing the strategies and tools to help us make this a reality. He is putting this aspiration and second order knowledge into action through a bold plan to change the world called: “Reinventing the Planet.”

this is one of those conversations that you just have to listen to.  it was unique not only in the conversation we had but in the ability and flexibility of David, a brilliant man to be kind and generous enough to change direction midstream with me and move away from what most if not everyone wants him to share, to answer my quirky questions and to challenge his own edges.

let me prepare you, David is not like most people. the world he sees is different from the world most of us see, because he asks different questions.  for instance, instead of asking what wrong with the world and how can we fix it? he simply asks, “what is possible?” it is amazing to see how the questions we ask give us the answers we follow. try asking new and different questions.

David invites people to grow beyond the edges and watch what happens when i ask David what is beyond the edge of his own growth right now?

i highly encourage you to visit his websites and spend some time there getting to know David and the amazing innovations he is creating with the people who associate with him . .

Ep 095 It’s Ok To Be Human with Andrea Garfield

By | Podcast

Aug 29, 2020

THIS SHOW IS SPONSORED BY THE MOSAIC
to learn more or to buy the book please go to amazon: http://a.co/dvgsgG3

Andrea Garfield has been building businesses and coaching and teaching leaders her whole career. after getting her MBA she built and sold companies and volunteered, coaching leaders across the globe. now as Founder and CEO of Awesome Institute, she is passionate about helping people be more human at work.

she blew into my awareness through a short video i saw of her coaching Simon Sinek through a tough time in this coronavirus pandemic.

and from the moment i watched that video i knew i wanted to have her on The Mosaic Podcast. she is kind, authentic, approachable and dare i say human. although she works with some really well known people, there was no air about her. she was real, and vulnerable (although she says this is still hard for her to be) and very accepting.

i found our conversation to be easy, like sitting on the front porch in a comfortable chair sipping a lemonade.  there was something very clean and wholesome about it. and we spoke about feeling feelings, how we learn to be separate, the gift of children, walking rather than jumping into change. i could tell you all about it, because in its own way, the conversation touched me like a gentle breeze touches me and brings me comfort. but that would rob you of the opportunity to experience this conversation from your point of view and feel what you feel from it, and why would i want to do that.

when i asked her what she would say to the word if she knew it was listening, she replied: “It’s okay to be human at work and in life.”

i invite you to experience Andrea Garfield and when you like the experience, i encourage you to learn more about her by going to:

Ep 093 The Moment We Become Who We Are with Trina Bardusco

By | Podcast

Somewhere in the back of my mind, i have the idea that the book i wrote, The Mosaic would always be turned into a movie or a Netflix series or something like that and from time to time life brings to me people who are really talented in filmmaking, directing and producing films.

i have also always felt that the essence of The Mosaic, the idea of listening to people no one listens to, and watching them righting front of my eyes transform from who i thought they were to who they are.  for the most part, this happens in my seeing something that i never saw in them before, AND . . .

occasionally it happens through the practice of holding space.  when a person feels safe enough to be themselves, all that they are not falls away, leaving only who they are to be seen.

both ways involve this practice of compassionate listening and both processes are exquisite to watch.

Trina Bardusco is an American-Venezuelan who is passionate about innovative storytelling, championing multiculturalism, diversity and content for women. She has written, directed, produced and or co-hosted a total of nine web series and for-and-about women in both English and Spanish.

you can easily see why i was so eager to speak with her.

She also co-pioneered HBO Latino’s original, award winning series, Habla, that for over a decade has given a platform to Latinos living in the U.S. Latinos from all walks of life, including dozens of celebrities, share their personal stories.

Her latest project, Going Solo, is a documentary series with a distinctly feminine take on the impulse to travel. Blending bold storytelling, far-flung locals, and spirited exploration, we follow Trina as she takes a walk—or twirl, or ride—in another’s shoes, seeking passion and excitement in each unique form of cultural expression.

need i say more, but there is more . . .

Trina began her career as a Fulbright Scholar of ethnomusicology in Spain in 1999 for her project, “Flamenco’s Duende and Deep Song.” She soon traded the library for one of the first, readily available DV digital cameras, and started documenting gypsy flamenco singer, Luis Agujeta. This lead to her debut documentary, I’m the Tourist,  where she first began experimenting with immersing herself in a way of life markedly different from her own.

what was fabulous to watch in this interview was that moment when we could feel who trina was actually came front an center.  thesis not to say that before na after that moment trina was not real and authentic and beautiful, but if you watch, i thin you will see, there is a moment she something changes.

those moments are what i live for. i hope you will enjoy watching this episode and that it will encourage you to usher in that moment for yourself when you become you.

Ep 092 When Curiosity Meets Listening with Martin Lopez

By | Podcast

Aug 12, 2020

I met Martin several years ago.  in the years i have known him, he has always been one of the kindest people i know.  he is someone who has always given to me way more than he has asked for, he has had me on numerous platforms that he has created and yet over the years we have not seen each other all that much

when he invited me to be on a facebook live conversation, i saw something in him that i had not seen before, and i wanted to have him on this podcast to share with us his work around curiosity and his book The Curiosity Theory.

i must say, this was one of the most interesting podcasts that i have ever done, because in the middleman our conversation, Martin stepped back to analyse what he was thinking and feeling from a curiosity perspective and then i did the same thing from a place of holding space and listening.

the two practices are very similar but i think you will see in this conversation, the living breathing practice of what each of us do.

i highly recommend Martin and if you are feeling stuck or this that a new way of looking at the world with curiosity might benefit you and/or you company, please reach out to him.

here is a little more Information on who Martin is and how you can reach him:

Martin Lopez is an Real Estate Professional as well an Author, Trainer and Coach in the personal development industry.

His book The Curiosity Theory is a powerful methodology that radically changes…

✅ The way we look at ourselves

✅ The way we look at each other.

✅ And The way we look at life,

The Curiosity Theory gives people alternatives during tense and stressful situations. This allows people to Powerfully Interact vs. Repeating the same mistakes over and over.

As a Trainer, Martin’s works with:

Start-ups ::: Corporate CEO’s ::: One on One Coaching ::: And High Performance Teams.

His gift is uncovering blind spots and strengthening professional and personal relationships, As well as helping teams and organizations work together more openly and efficiently.

Martin is a graduate of the University of Santa Monica’s Spiritual Psychology program and has extensive training in may other methodologies.

During his 30+ years as a real estate professional and mortgage banker, Martin saw so many opportunities lost due to misaligned energy, conflict and self-sabotaging communications.

Almost every time, the issues were human rather than technical:

  • Simple misunderstandings
  • Tragic disagreement
  • Fear-driven distrust

The Curiosity Theory is the result of Martin’s exploration. Written in the same humorous, conversational style he uses when teaching seminars. The book is a guide to practicing The Curiosity Theory to strengthen your relationships in all aspects of your life.

Applied curiosity improves communication and collaboration. It helps teams work together more openly and efficiently. It brings friends, couples and families closer together.

Ep 091 When Fiction Becomes Reality – Sugar Mountain with Alfred Alcorn

By | Podcast

Aug 7, 2020

This happens sometimes in the world of fiction and science fiction, a writer writes a story that speaks of something that happens only to find years later, what the writer saw happen, actually happens. Alfred Alcorn is not a prophet, a psychic or a doomsayer, he is just a brilliant author who has seen enough of the world to tell stories of a world that could be.

Sugar Mountain, written in 2013, could become a manual to help us navigate or way through the global pandemic of Coved -19.  it is not an exact rendition, but what it does do, is it invites the reader to contemplate, is Coved -19 a one and done endemic or the messenger for a more deadly pandemic that could surface at any time.

Hear Alfred thoughts on what can be done, what the world is trying to say to us and what the world might soon look like if we don’t all come together.

First published in 2013 and set in western Massachusetts, Sugar Mountain  revolves around the struggle of an extended family to survive a pandemic  that starts in China and spreads around the world with devastating effect.  As it stands,  Sugar Mountain could serve as a survival manual should Covid 19 mutate and turn more deadly than it already is.  Because of the relevance and increased demand for Sugar Mountain, the publisher has come out with a reissue that might be of interest to those who have not read the 2013 edition.

Born Alfred Denny and orphaned at the age of eight, the author grew up in the U.K. (Merseyside), in Ireland (County Roscommon), and in the U.S. (Massachusetts). He graduated from Harvard and has worked as a journalist, editor, teacher, travel director (for the Harvard Museum of Natural History).  In that last capacity he planned and led trips all over the world, including Antarctica.  He has also been a safari guide, mostly in Tanzania, which he knows well.

To date he has written and published 10 novels.  They have been reviewed in the New Yorker, The New York Times, the Boston Globe, and many other publications.
