It empowers one to accept themselves and others, breaks down barriers, and rebuilds a world where everyone belongs.John Samuel is the CEO and cofounder of Ablr, a disability inclusion and accessibility business working to remove barriers that hinder people with disabilities from all aspects of life.

ASPIRE with Reiner Lomb

In this Aging GreatFuLLy power hour we welcome the invitation to bring our visions to reality and tap into our leadership abilities to create the future we aspire! With special guest, Reiner Lomb, Author of ASPIRE: Seven Essential Emotions for Leading Positive Change, No Matter Where You Are, we discover that each of us has special abilities and talents to inch us towards our aspirations and we’re not checking our emotions at the door! Reiner is Founder of BoomerangCoach, an executive coaching firm specializing in leadership and career development, innovation and transformational change whose mission is to mobilize and develop leaders to create a more sustainable future for all. Reiner reminds us that we all have the capacity to lead towards positive change and shares how this is an important contributor to achieving what we want most out of life. Reiner believes emotions play a key role in creating change and shares a variety of ways the seven critical emotions help towards leadership roles as well as achieving goals, dreams and aspirations. It’s a must-listen hour as we begin with asking listeners what they would do if a Genie magically showed up in their life! But if you couldn’t answer that then, by the end of the hour, you’ll have plenty of inspirational ideas to get you motivated towards your aspirations. We talk about changes as we grow older, feeling like we’re no longer worthy or capable of change and even how we may feel challenged to define our dreams over and through the years. But there’s a few key phrases in this episode that speak to everyone, “No Matter Where You Are” and “Resilience”. In this, we are reminded that while we may not know the answers or feel challenged to identify them, Aging Rebels always find a way. And that’s another message in this episode, as Lomb feels “Your inspiration to create inspirational change may come from your dissatisfaction from the status quo, joyful anticipation of an aspirational new future, or a new insight. To create such a vision and bring it into reality requires an emotional shift from hopelessness to optimism and inspiration, which then can mobilize any group – from dozens to millions.” We spotlight purpose and passion as an important component throughout life and certainly as we grow older. And we acknowledge even when we may not have a voice like we once did, we may still be able to be heard through our emotional connections, delivered heart to heart. To connect with Reiner Lomb, learn more about his individual and group coaching, speaking, or buy his book, ASPIRE, or Boomerang Approach, Return to Purpose, Ignite Your Passion, visit him at www.ReinerLomb.com.Thank you, amazing Aging Rebels, for listening to the Aging GreatFULLy show!

Light After Loss with Ashley Davis Bush, LICSW

In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour, we continue with part two of our last conversation talking about grief, healing, love and even light after loss, as we welcome special guest, Ashley Davis Bush, LICSW. Ashley has over thirty years of experience as a psychotherapist in private practice and is the author of ten self-help books, including her most recent work, Light After Loss: A Spiritual Guide for Comfort, Hope and Healing. She is trained in EMDR trauma work, as well as Emotionally Focused Therapy, is a Reiki master and a spiritual director who draws on many healing modalities. Listeners will appreciate the depth and tenderness this conversation offers as we welcome them into the light – and discuss so many important facets of grieving experiences we face in life – including why it is so important to grieve and how grieving has changed over the years. We expand on our last conversation furthering ways we can support others during their grieving journey and even defining our own terms of how we need to grieve. We talk about expectations of others when it comes to grief and even judgement regarding the grieving process and how we can educate others around us when we are in this place as to what we need for the grieving process. We acknowledge that while grief won’t have an expiration date, we can begin the process of healing through light – recognizing our own illuminating from within and as our guest shares in her work and book, Light After Loss, through Light-Shift practices. We focus on a multitude of ways to make meaning out of loss, to celebrate our loved ones, especially during the holidays and special anniversary occasions when we might feel especially heartbroken in the depths of bereavement – to bring them closer to us and warm our heart and soul with love. Listeners will truly appreciate the wisdom-packed hour as we analyze grief from so many different perspectives in an effort to help everyone better understand it towards healing, hope and finding purpose to live in the light again following the loss of a loved one so dear. We discover it is through picking up the pieces of our broken heart a little at a time, while honoring our loved one along the way, somehow light finds its way in. Because love is light and it can slowly open the doorway to a new way of living again after loss. To learn more about Ashley Davis Bush, purchase her book, Light after Loss, or her class books, Transcending Loss, and The Little Book of Inner Peace, and many more, access her blog, inquire about her counseling services and more, visit her at www.ashleydavisbush.com.

Wouldas, Shouldas & Couldas: Quilting Good Grief with Holley Kelley

In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour we begin a two-part series on an important topic most of us face at some point in our lives – coping with grief and being prepared for end-of-life. However, we begin the hour talking about some of your favorite TV shows, because on the Aging GreatFULLy show, we’re never cookie cutter! But you’ll soon understand why… as we do make our way to explore several kinds of grief, including the challenging emotions we may be left with after experiencing the loss of a loved one. Host Holley Kelley shares how we often end up replaying all those challenging post-death emotions of regret, resentment and remorse through what she calls our “Wouldas, Shouldas and Couldas” renderings. But this Ground Hog Day replay we subject ourselves to can also often prevent us from moving forward to live our best life and experiencing healthy grieving – good grief. We talk about how grief can come in many varieties and discuss the challenges many have in knowing how to deal with their own grief journey and how to support others who are grieving too. Kelley takes us through the hour as we look at grief from a variety of angles and experiences. Kelley also is a huge advocate of advance care and end-of-life planning as an EOL consultant. She is author of the Amazon #1 Release, National and International Multi-award winning book, Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse and FUNctionality, that has helped readers around the world plan for the end and inspire their GRAND new beginning with her novel approach to living fully while being thoughtfully prepared. Her book is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble or visit www.HolleyKelley.com for autographed copies. Listen to this episode for a special and limited promo code she shares. In summary, Kelley invites listeners to consider special ways to upcycle their grief to celebrate their loved ones – something she calls Quilting Good Grief© with a “Good Grief Quilt Patch”©. We discover, through remaining centered in the love and energy inspired by and through our loved ones passed, our heart is encouraged towards healing, hope and transcendence, one stitch or deed at a time.

The Fountain of YOU-th! with Gregory Landsman

In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour we invite you to bask in the Fountain of YOU-th! That’s right, come gather around for this conversation all about YOU, destressing, healthy, AGEless living and self-care strategies for your mind, body and soul with returning guest, one of the world’s most noted beauty and wellness experts to the supermodels and superstars, Gregory Landsman. Gregory is a best-selling author of nine-books and the TV Host of Face Lifting Food – a show about how to use food to lower stress and maintain healthy, younger looking skin, shown in universities, wellness centers and in more than 70 countries worldwide. Join us for a conversation beyond beauty, as Gregory speaks to the essence of seeing one another with our heart. As he says, it’s beyond the skin and not “hard work, but heart work”. The conversation flows effortlessly as only it can with Gregory Landsman because he is passionate about his work and believes that “How you age is in your hands.” You will LOVE his acronym for BEAUTY! We talk about the external messages we’re receiving about growing older from the greater world from a variety of sources and how we may be internalizing them, including how they may be wearing us down. But we also discuss what we should “say back” to these messages once we acknowledge them. Gregory believes that Mother Nature has provided what we need to provide self-care and natural remedies for skin care. And his books highlight his processes beautifully as he shares how to reduce stress and skin stress naturally (one of the greatest causes of premature skin aging) to naturally age less while embracing every beautiful stAGE along life’s way. But we also talk about the Fountain of YOU-th, in that Fountains spring forth life and vitality. Every fountain is beautiful and YOUnique. And we believe this to be true about every Aging Rebel. And the Fountain of Youth itself represented the great quest for youth. And as such, we love that Aging Rebels are dedicated to seizing and bubbling up their own child-like wonder in their curious and ongoing zest for life! And much like a fountain, Aging Rebels possess an enthusiastic approach to living, inspiring others through being great Role Models. Much like a fountain offers abundance, we also speak to the many special and important gifts and wisdom every listener has within them to share with the world around them at every stAGE! We focus on Gregory Landsman’s best-selling trilogy, Face Fitness, Face Food and Face Value, a dynamic work he has created that provides readers with a solution to transform the health of their skin naturally as we take a deep dive into the challenges many encounter with their internal thoughts, perceptions and even fears about growing older – even from a very young age. As a sought-after expert who has worked in the beauty and fashion industry for over 30 years, Gregory has developed his own GL De-stress and AGE Less method. Based on ancient modalities that have been used for thousands of years, his techniques are proven, endorsed and science based. They have been used by the global beauty industry for years to teach models how to de-stress their bodies and skin. But Gregory believes everyone should have affordable access to this type of self-care. It's a special conversation about one of my favorite topics – YOU, Aging Rebels! You won’t want to miss it! To learn more about Gregory Landsman, visit him at www.GregoryLandsman.com where you can connect with him and also access the free eBook shared on this show, purchase his books and more. His books are also available at your favorite book retailers and his book trilogy, Face Fitness, Face Value and Face Food is available on Amazon in paperback https://a.co/d/0HrCFPM and also available as an affordable eBook version.Thank you, amazing Aging Rebels, for listening to the Aging GreatFULLy show!

Stroke of Gratitude with Aanandha Sharurajah

In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour we go gratitude mode with a surprising twist in Stroke of Gratitude with our special guest all the way from Singapore, welcoming Aanandha Sharurajah, for a reflective, inspiring and educational conversation everyone will treasure. Aanandha is the author of the just released book, Stroke of Gratitude: How to Find Truth, Love, and Happiness in Healing After Health Crisis. And he didn’t just write the book, he lived the experience and continues to every single day. He joins us to share a story of inspiration. A Journey of Grit; Moments of despair and times of great challenge. He knows what it feels like look back upon a life that once was and realize it won’t ever be the same again. Aanandha joins us to share his story of overcoming unbelievable adversity but most of all how he chose to take what had happened to him and manifest it for the greater good not only in his own life but for the world at large. In one moment, Aanandha Sharurajah was CEO of one of the largest wellness companies in Singapore. And in the next, his entire life was derailed by a life-threatening stroke. His life changed in an instant. And along with it, he found himself redefining what it meant to be happy and successful. He discovered that the loss of independence and identity can be as debilitating as the diagnosis itself. But he also learned that living an empowered life after a health crisis is possible—when you choose the path of self-discovery instead of self-pity. He shares how a positive mindset paves the way to emerge stronger after loss and the transformative power of strong relationships. His sage wisdom echoes clearly why it’s important to heal from the heart, not just the mind. And he gives a simple blueprint to initiate the neuroplasticity of our brain by managing stress, enhancing movement and improving our diet – all valuable contributors to his personal journey of recovery. He also shares how alternative treatments, combined with therapy, made a significant impact towards his recovery. He believes he survived this life-threatening stroke for a reason – to help others avoid what he has endured and be a voice for humanity. And he is passionate about stroke education and prevention. He shares the importance of sleep, diet, stress management and much more as well as stroke statistics that Aging Rebels will find surprising. But you’ll really appreciate some other special words of wisdom that I won’t share here because we don’t want it all to be a spoiler. In the end, this episode is a must-listen for everyone! But especially anyone who finds themselves challenged in life. And in particular, anyone who may be facing a health crisis who may need some inspirational hand-holding to carry them through the next steps. Aanandha definitely reminds us that life isn’t about what happens to us, but how we handle what happens to us and furthermore, what we do with it once it does. It is a lesson on life and a life lesson on living like no other. A reflective power-hour certain to help us all Age more GreatFULLy!

Rosenberg, PhD, bestselling author, three-time TEDx speaker, corporate wellness consultant, media expert, and trainer on communication, confidence, resilience and authenticity. Dr. Rosenberg presents a simple system for releasing us from the tyranny of the 8 key unpleasant emotions that undermine successful lives. She is the author of the bestselling book, 90 Seconds to a Life You Love, How to Master Your Difficult Feelings to Cultivate Lasting Confidence, Resilience and Authenticity.As a young girl, Joan Rosenberg struggled with being terribly shy, sensitive, bullying and with a feeling of not fitting in with her peers. In short, she had no confidence. But she saw confidence in the people around her and strived to understand why they had it and she didn’t…what was the difference? It became her life quest! And now, as an innovative and leading-edge psychologist, with over 40 years of clinical practice combining neuroscience and cognitive and emotion-focused therapy, Dr. Joan Rosenberg absolutely knows what that difference is. Her discoveries are groundbreaking and life changing!

Because confidence, she has found, has everything to do with your ability to know you can handle unpleasant emotions. In this must-listen power hour of enlightYOUment, Dr. Rosenberg unveils those eight unpleasant emotions and what trips many people up regarding suppressing unpleasant feelings, why we avoid unpleasant feelings, and even distractions that undermine our confidence.

Life and Death Matters with Holley Kelley

In this week’s Aging GreatFULLy power-hour we explore simple yet bountiful ways to receive the most out of life in the present while preparing thoughtfully for what is to come – our inevitable future passing. Host Holley Kelley, a gerontologist, Fellow in Thanatology, and Founder of the Latter-Life Planning Institute, puts the spotlight on some of her professional work and discusses facets of her book, Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse and FUNctionality, and shares the many ways planning can bring peace of mind and newfound passion-borne freedom to living extraordinary in the present. While Aging GreatFULLy often emphasizes innumerable ways Aging Rebels can center themselves in Best Life Now Practices, Kelley reminds listeners to make a habit of setting daily intentions alongside their smiles and gratitude practices. She focuses on things that one can do to live with peace and concord not only in the present, but so one can die with a clear conscious, regret free, as well as ensure those they leave behind can receive closure and live with resolution too, referencing her novel “Kick-the-Bucket-List”. She also discusses ways to ensure you’re living everyday life, not just going through the motions, such as working that Bucket List emphasizing that each day is a gift and to be cherished and honored through our grand living!Kelley acknowledges that many people are challenged to know where to begin when it comes to basic planning and that it’s easy to just "not think about it" or leave it to another day. Noting there’s not day of the week called “someday” she gives a prod, elbow and on-air nudge for everyone who hasn’t yet done so, to complete their advance directives and even reviews one on air, sharing what it entails to try to answer some of the questions many may have about doing so.From discussing changes as we age, to thoughts about personal items, funeral planning, memorials and your many wishes in general, including thoughts you’d like to leave behind with those you love, it’s an important conversation for anyone who believes they may someday die. Life and Death Matters—Matter. And Kelley covers them A-Z in her book, Sunrises and Sunsets…well, actually, her acronym for covering them is CREATED PEACE, her innovative 12-Step process allowing everyone to plan through a soulful and enriching journey. Her process goes beyond the physical and technical and connects one spiritually, mentally and emotionally to truly discover and explore Life and Death Matters in a way that is gentle, compassionate and transformational. For those interested, Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse and FUNctionality book is available on Amazon Prime, Barnes & Noble or you can ask for it at your local booksellers. For exclusive autographed copies available in the continental U.S., visit her store at: https://www.latterlifeplanninginstitute.com/store/c11/Books_-_Sunrises_and_Sunsets_Single_%26_Bulk.html.

The Gift of Shift with Ann Papayoti

Don’t let life’s roadblocks and what may feel like a dead end hold you back any longer! In this week’s Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightYOUment, we welcome international life, leadership and relationship coach, Ann Papayoti, author of The Gift of Shift: Discover the Key Within You to Unlock Your Best Life, written with Tracey MacDonald. The Gift of Shift is Ann’s gift to those who are struggling with life’s unforeseen consequences and fear what is ahead. She shows how easy change can be once you embrace the gift within the challenge, and set your course for a lighter heart, and alternative emotion, and a surrender within the moment. It’s easy to get overwhelmed in life and only see the obstacle, challenge or setback or as shared in the opening—only “see” the dead end. But there’s always another choice. Ann’s work is founded on personal experiences of having endured some of life’s most brutal blows, from her college best friend deliberately stealing her high school sweetheart, the loss of an infant child, surviving a belligerent and abusive husband, having a child born with epilepsy and other neurological disorders, a family suicide, being bitten by a poisonous snake that went undiagnosed for months and the list continues. But despite it all, she found the gift hidden within each experience and utilized the gift of choice to respond to the challenges. And she’s on a mission to share with the world how they too, can open their gifts when facing unfortunate circumstances, instead of freezing up, shutting down or giving into depression or other unhealthy emotions, and alternatively choosing a better, more life-affirming, adaptable approach that can lead to new possibilities and a better path forward. In her book, The Gift of Shift, “Gift” is the center theme of each chapter and readers will discover how to make “shift” happen within their own lives and unique circumstances. The book is written as a guide to make it easy to choose change. It’s an inspiring hour from beginning to end and Aging Rebels will definitely want to not only purchase The Gift of Shift at their favorite bookseller, but also visit Ann Papayoti at www.skyviewcoaching.com to learn more about how she guides others towards personal growth. She also has a free gift, Soul CPR Mini Course video intro followed by a downloadable workbook to find your pulse on life again for listeners to access at www.skyviewcoaching.com/soul-cpr-free-gift.

The Go-Giver Marriage with John David & Ana Gabriel Mann

In this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightYOUment, we discuss an important topic to everyone—relationships! So often relationships can feel like two ships that pass in the night verses two ships anchored side by side in the harbor. And at the core of our relationships can be marriage. With that, we welcome the coauthor of more than thirty books, John David Mann, including four New York Times bestsellers and five national bestsellers; his classic 2008 parable The Go-Giver (coauthored with Bob Burg) selling over 1 million copies and earned the 2017 Living Now Book Award’s “Evergreen Medal” given for its “contribution to positive global change.” But John David Mann’s latest work involved a different partner of the pen, his life partner and partner in marriage, Ana Gabriel Mann, M.A., and together, they created The Go-Giver Marriage: A Little Story About the 5 Secrets to Lasting Love. Together they weaved their wisdom, unique strengths and experiences to create The Go-Giver Marriage to be a book like no other!Over the years since the original book’s publication, the term “go-giver” has become shorthand for a defining set of values that has helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world find greater professional success. Now, with its charming fable-within-a-parable, followed by an in-depth practical guide, The Go-Giver Marriage brings the personal side of The Go-Giver to life.For more than a decade, readers of the bestselling Go-Giver series have been clamoring for a book on how to apply the philosophy at the heart of The Go-Giver to their personal relationships. From the original story’s coauthor, John, who is a well-known and gifted storyteller, and his wife, Ana, a clinically trained educator and therapist, this long-awaited sequel shows readers how to unlock a deeply satisfying, abundant relationship based on simple, everyday acts of generosity. You’ll enjoy the entire hour as John and Ana share how to improve your marriage by focusing on your own mindset, and how you bring yourself to the relationship. They discuss how one simple practice can transform your relationship and create positive, lasting change in as little as a week or two. They remind us to drop the score card, and alternatively, build a “things-I-love-about-you” list that can transform the quality of your marriage and so much more you won’t want to miss! They also share their favorite secrets to lasting love but you’ll have to listen to find out what they are! Ana Gabriel Mann earned her degree in clinical psychology before going on to serve as a celebrated educator, therapist, corporate trainer, speaker, and coach.

You Rockin’ 2022! With Holley Kelley

As we welcome the New Year, host Holley Kelley welcomes listeners with a simple message, to make the year theirs! Instead of hoping this year will bring great bounty to us, Holley reminds us that we already have all that is necessary to bring forth awesomeness to ROCK THIS YEAR!

What if your conscience could be your guide and provide super-conscious wisdom? That’s the powerful message today’s guest, Leonard Perlmutter, brings for the New 2022 Year and beyond!

As author of Your Conscience: The Key to Unlock Limitless Wisdom, Creativity and Solve All of Life’s Challenges, Perlmutter articulates the powerful role of our conscience, highlighting its supreme intelligence, and helps us better understand the Four Functions of the Mind. Using his shared wisdom, we gain insight as to why perspective is everything and he helps us identify how to tune into our own conscience. He educates on this complicated topic in a simplistic way that makes sense and it’s no wonder Jiminy Cricket is AMI’s self-proclaimed spoke person, as he does believe we should, “Always let your conscience be your guide.” But Perlmutter asks us not to take his word for it —calling upon each listener to experiment with what he shares. It’s an educational, empowering and entertaining hour from beginning to end, offering tips, tools and guidance towards unlocking our full potential of wisdom and unlimited possibilities. In this power-hour of enlightYOUment, Perlmutter addresses the importance of self-care as it may relate to many New Year’s Resolutions, as well as a well-celebrated living and Aging GreatFULLy. He defines Yoga for us, and its many benefits, as well as meditation, and he invites listeners to join him for his globally-welcomed weekly guided meditations and Satsang held every Sunday morning. Leonard has presented informative workshops on the benefits of meditation and Yoga Science at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Kaiser Permanente, the Albany Medical College, The New York Times forum on Yoga Science, the Commonwealth Club of California, the University of Wisconsin School of Nursing, the Washington University Medical School the University of Colorado Medical and the West Point Association of Graduates. Over the past twenty-five years, he has served on the faculties of the New England Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts and the International Himalayan Yoga Teachers Association in Calgary, Canada. Leonard’s first book, The Heart and science of Yoga: The American Meditation Institute’s Empowering Self-Care Program for a Happy, Healthy, Joyful Life, is an encyclopedic guide to meditation and the Yoga Science that lies behind it. The book and its corresponding curriculum, taught by Leonard in his Foundations class, was enthusiastically endorsed by popular medical luminaries like Drs. Dean Ornish, Mehmet Oz and Larry Dossey. You can learn more about this, his books and inspiring work, workshops, guided meditations and more by visiting www.americanmeditation.org.

Old-Fashioned Christmas Storytime with Holley Kelley

Join us for an Aging GreatFULLy Old-Fashioned Christmas Storytime with Holley Kelley! Some traditions never grow old, and story time gatherings are certainly one of them, regardless of our age. You’re invited to gather around the fireplace or snuggle up with your favorite blanket, beverage, family or pet and enjoy the timeless tradition of storytelling as host, Holley Kelley, shares some holiday stories she wrote just for listeners. Two are from last year’s Christmastime episode—but that’s the great thing about the holidays—the tradition of cherishing recycled stories told year after year. And we have a new narrative this year too, founded on truth that began long ago, around Christmastime. We hope you will enjoy all three special and unique pieces in this special holiday tribute hour. In the hustle and bustle and demands of life, especially this time of year, we hope you will find some joy and lose yourself in the creative imaginings of storytelling. These stories are about family, love, forgiveness and never giving up on your dreams. They remind us of the true meaning of Christmastime and how important it is to carry forth the essence of all it encompasses, year-round. The messages in these stories also bring forth the unwavering significance of unconditional love, what it means to belong, how you’re never too old, it’s never too late, and how family… is well… family—sometimes blood related, and sometimes it’s who we call “our people.”Whether you celebrate special holidays or not, we hope every listener enjoys the messages woven within these storylines. On behalf of the Aging GreatFULLy show, we wish each listener a season of happiness and joy, may your life be full of what matters most, health, hope, passion, love, peace, and happiness.Thank you, amazing Aging Rebels, for listening to the Aging GreatFULLy show!

A Holley Jolly Fun-Filled Christmas with Santa!

Join us for a Holley Jolly Fun-Filled Christmas with Santa Claus but don't take us too serious because we're not, even if we try! Santa Claus, joins the Aging GreatFULLy show to tell us how things really are behind the scenes at the North Pole. But be forewarned, it's not a show for the young boys and girls because Santa, aka, my brother, Del Kelley, talks about liquored-up reindeer, what really happens at the Kringle Mingle, and some other surprises I didn't see coming! You'll be able to tell it was hard to keep my composure throughout a lot of this dialogue because my brother -- I mean Santa -- has that effect on me. It's a good thing that laughter is the best medicine!With the year we've had, the challenges we often face, struggles life can throw our way, I hope this episode allows you to get lost in some imaginative Christmas fun and lose yourself in a laugh or two. This episode is meant to entertain; I acknowledge that my jokes are bad but my hopes are to simply take your mind off of things and bring some enjoyment into your life and make your Yuletide merry! Our family laughs a lot, at each other, at life, and at ourselves. There's something to be said for laughter. I believe we can't get enough of it.Santa shares how to make the "Nice List" and what he does with all those letters he receives! And he also answers the big question we're all wondering -- will Rudulph lead the sleigh again this year? It's a big reveal from beginning to end, including what he does during his off time, what he wears when he's not outfitted in the red suit, and so much more surprising North Pole News you'll only hear here!There's some serious aspects of this show too, hidden amidst the narratives, humor and creative imaginings. Santa reminds us about the true meaning of this sacred and Glorious season. And the empirical value of kindness, and how each day offers a new opportunity to begin again with a fresh beginning. And Santa shares the importance of forgiveness too as he talks about the Naughty to Nice List system implemented at the NP. Christmas reminds us of the importance of sharing our generosity of spirit with others but Santa asks us to remember to do this year round. The gift of Christmas is a wonderful one to celebrate. So, I hope you laugh along with us through corny jokes, an atypical Santa, childlike imagination and wonder and join in our holiday cheer and celebrate this time of year with lots of fun and lightheartedness alongside us!

Through trials and tribulations, Chris persevered despite setbacks on the road to his eventual success, such as business failures, loss and heartbreak. Chris is currently a real estate consultant and founder of The Patrick Group, a premier real estate firm in Las Vegas. With over $100 million sold since 2013, he was named in the top 1% for all Las Vegas Realtors and the number one top producer for Signature Real Estate Group. Previously, he owned three successful businesses and spent 15 satisfying years in sales, marketing and customer service. His message is an important and powerful one, written candidly and received between the pages as if hearing it right from your bestie over a latte or your favorite beverage or brew. And that is, he hopes to inspire others to see the opportunity within their own failures, rather than shame and defeat, and overcome their serious hardships, traumatic events, or struggles in order to live their absolute best lives. Chris's unfiltered messages resonate chapter after chapter. (note we elude to expletives in this episode but do not use them)Chris Patrick is the classic example that life is what we make of it, and he’s here to remind everyone that nobody has a perfect life but we do have the power to improve it. Disaster to Dreams is a gripping read reminding everyone of their limitless opportunity. It’s part guidebook, part self-reflection workbook, part memoir, and entrepreneur’s bread crumb trail for great advice, but most of all, it’s a book for anyone who seeks to get the most out of life!To learn more about Chris Patrick, connect with him or purchase Disaster to Dreams, also available on Amazon or your favorite booksellers, visit him at www.chrispatrick.net.

But Margit makes the case that moving forward is made easier by looking back. From a variety of heartfelt and authentic stories to years of experiences and wisdom gained both personally and as a senior move manager, Margit shares how we can reframe and re-vision growing older to navigate the years forward with purpose and passion! From the importance of social connections, to what we can learn from our aging pets, and even life transitions and making amends, her stories and examples are tender, all-too-real, sometimes humorous and even occasionally sad, but remind us all of the importance of having insight regarding these thought-provoking conversations. Margit also focuses on legacies – not just the kind you leave behind but also the kind you create by the life you live – something so important for each of us to consider in our aging journey towards living our best life now.

Relationship RescYOU 200: Me, We, World with Dr. Erica Goodstone

In part 2 of our Aging GreatFULLy Relationship RescYOU series, we welcome back Dr. Erica Goodstone, Ph.D., LMHC, LMFT, a Healing Through Love Mentor and Relationship Expert and continue the conversation in Relationship RescYOU 200: Me, We, World. We receive a bounty of insight as Dr. Erica helps us understand the nuances of relationships, defines what love is and what love isn’t, and we gain a better understanding of why, when it comes to others, love can be a team sport. They say it takes two to tango, and where love it concerned, it also takes two – to share a common goal of being invested in the relationship. It’s a conversation rich with wisdom across the ages, as Dr. Erica cites what she’s learned personally, professionally and even gained from some of her most admired mentors. And we realize love may be a little easier said and aspired than acquired – but when we achieve it, it’s well worth the effort. We talk about expectations and even disappointments, both being one and being on the receiving end of one—the power of forgiveness and making amends, and even letting go. And we discuss how the little things can be the big things. We also reflect back to last week’s episode, Relationship RescYOU 101: Me, Myself & I, to our youth and former experiences, even culture, and how they play a powerful role and greatly impact what we bring to our relationships. We gain awareness as to why we choose the partners we choose and even a better understanding on why they may react the way they do in certain situations.It’s a deeply insightful power-hour of enlightYOUment on all things relationships you won’t want to miss for everyone that wants to know more about dating, their partner, strengthen their marriage, understand more about love, improve their life or just wants more harmony in their relationships both individually and with others! Dr. Erica Goodstone helps you (as an individual or couple, male, female, gay or heterosexual) to heal your body, yourself, and your relationships through Love. Dr. Erica is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Marriage Therapist, Board Certified Sex Therapist, on the Faculty of the International Institute for Clinical Sexology, Somatic Body Psychotherapist and Personal/Life and Health/Wellness Coach.

Relationship RescYOU: Me, Myself & I with Dr. Erica Goodstone

In this special 2-part Aging GreatFULLy series we put the spotlight on all things Relationships! In this first episode, Relationship RescYOU 101: Me Myself and I, we welcome special guest, relationship expert, Dr. Erica Goodstone, Ph.D., LMHC, LMFT, a Healing Through Love Mentor, as we focus on the most vital and foundational relationship – that being, the one we have with ourselves. Dr. Erica Goodstone educates us on mother-infant bonding and how the formative years, those we can’t remember, are paramount in how we view and engage in relationships later in life as well as how we adopt personal beliefs regarding internal and external love. It’s an educational and insightful hour from beginning to end, as we discover how we are impacted by our culture, our family dynamic, upbringing and foundations of love. But most importantly, we learn about the brain’s plasticity allowing us to ability to improve areas where we may have experienced a deficit in those formative and younger years and this empowers us as adults to take the wheel and make positive improvements to make the rest of the years the best of the years moving forward. We discuss disappointment, forgiveness, and capacity for self-love and how the relationship with ourselves is an important one for many reasons. We also realize that when we look around and only see ourselves, it’s not only important to like that person in the mirror, but we also need to be able to count on them. We need to take stock in who we are. But also, it’s beneficial to become our own best friend, get behind ourselves, support ourselves in this journey of life, and know what we stand for and really appreciate what it’s taken to become the person we are today. When we do the work, we realize, when we’ve gotten ourselves to a place where we are good with the person in the mirror, we are ready for what the world –and others—may bring our way. Getting good with who we are is also wonderful rite of passage towards Aging GreatFULLy as well!Be sure and join us next week as the dialogue continues in part two, Relationship RescYOU 200: Me, We, World with Dr. Erica Goodstone.

We discover the incredible power of our thoughts and the relationship regarding how they really work towards manifesting into becoming things. One thing we realize, is that it’s important to pay attention and be mindful of our mind--consciously conscience—but also, note which part has the loudest voice.It’s an enlightening and educational hour from beginning to end allowing us to discover more about our own conscience and as Perlmutter shares, “when regularly exercised, can become sharp and clear like a brilliant mirror” which, of course, makes it earlier to reflect our inner wisdom and guide our actions.

Life Mastery with Sherry Stirling Fernandez

We’re all on life’s journey heading in varying directions but what we truly desire is to achieve Life Mastery. And today’s guest would have it no other way! We welcome Shirley Stirling Fernandez, author of just that book, a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestseller, Life Mastery: Personal Progression Toward an Infinite Potential. Sherry shares The Formula for Continual Expansion into Your Own Greatness: Contentment + Progress = Happiness.

Cowboy Ethics, Living Well & Aging GreatFULLy with Jim Owen

There are some things that just don’t go out of style, no matter how much time passes by. That is some of the core values taught by our ancestors that came before us who lived to tell the stories of their day. And we too, are building and creating our stories, the introductions of which often began unfolding early in our youth. At nearly 81 years young, returning guest, Jim Owen still has a lot of living, passion, purpose and stories to share! Determined to get fit in his 70’s, the 80-year-old former Wall Street executive, best-selling author of Cowboy Ethics, and Just Move, documentary filmmaker, social entrepreneur, and global speaker, Jim Owen, inspires others through his fitness journey, positive and empowering thoughts about life and living and his recent documentary film, The Art of Aging Well. We unpack his best-selling and highly inspirational book, Cowboy Ethics: What It Takes to Win at Life, and how he came to explore the Code of The West. Jim will tell you he had a fascination with cowboys since his youth and they had forever been his heroes. But it was his ability to cherry pick their core values that truly is astonishing. And as he shares on this show, that isn’t just my opinion. His Code of the West was declared as the “Official Code of the West” by the Governor of Wyoming…a high honor indeed! Speaking of honor, Jim’s codes aren’t just for cowboys and day’s gone by. They embody the best of fundamental values, iconic traits for living a life rich with principled beliefs in a modern era. 10 tenets like Courage, Pride, Fairness and Promises, all of which he outlines on the show. The book itself is a work of art and each page wisdom infused stories to back up the reason for the code of ethic. But his resonating message is one of the fact that we all need heroes during this time, and his hope is that the Cowboy Way will inspire everyone to reach for the Hero Within. But he’s much more than a cowboy enthusiast and admirer --though admittedly not a cowboy himself, and says quite openly he’s even scared of horses. But what he is – is a BOLD life enthusiast and absolute Aging GreatFULLy Role Model! In his book shared on a previous episode, Just Move, he shares his journey from couch potato to fitness by simply making the choice to “move” and encourages everyone to simply do so. His latest project is another powerful one, a multi-segment documentary film, The Art of Aging Well and spotlights everyday super-agers the art of aging itself. Listeners are invited to view it on his website at www.justmoveforlife.com for free, where you can also learn more about all the fascinating and inspiring work he is doing, purchase his books and connect with him.An inspiring show from beginning to end you won’t want to miss!

Ellen openly shares her journey of caring for her mother with cognitive decline and how their relationship changed over time. And candidly shares how in spite of the changes in the relationship, there were still ways to create special moments of connections, joy and even laughter. Ellen also shares a saying she has adopted, daresay a mantra -- that I feel many listeners will appreciate and even adopt into their own lives. An enjoyable and enriching hour from beginning to end!Ellen Rittberg lectures about caregiving, parenting and creative writing in many venues, including before Covid, on cruise ships.

Sara shares her personal journey of an impressive thirty-year career in fashion, writing, and advertising. And, one of the biggest lessons she learned in her thirty-years is that in advertising—appearances can be deceiving—and Sara was good at showing people only what she wanted them to see.

It’s a powerfully candid hour as Sara takes us along on her unbelievable quest to uncover answers to questions she didn’t even know she was asking at times. And, as you will learn from listening, despite life’s lows, silver linings may simply be the ability to still see a glimmer of light, or find humor in unsuspecting places and laugh along the rocky road we travel. In her case, it took a rogue lobster, dying rock star, an eighteen-pound tumor, a meditation guru, a famous medium, and a former monk to put her on the path towards light, hope, self-love and healing. Truly, a captivating listen from beginning to end! Sara serves as a light house for others to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel and your time to shine is ahead, regardless of what life may feel like today.

Cracking the Code of Caregiving with Dr. Aaron Blight

Sometimes we’re just driving along life’s scenic journey enjoying the view and suddenly out of nowhere we intersect with something we never saw coming. We get the call the changes the entire trajectory of our intended destination. That is often what it can feel like when we are thrust into a caregiving role. Today’s guest knows this first hand. Aaron Blight, Ed.D., joins us to share his personal story of becoming a family caregiver and how it forever changed his life. Dr. Blight is the author of When Caregiving Calls: Guidance as You Care for a Parent, Spouse, or Aging Relative, and not only is he a professional expert in this field, he’s been there, done that – personally. As founder of Caregiving Kinetics, Dr. Blight has made it his mission to Crack the Caregiving Code! In this must listen power-hour of enlightYOUment, he shares how caregiving suddenly took its detour into his family’s life, why he wrote his book, When Caregiving Calls, and how prevalent caregiving is in society. We use the metaphoric road trip of life and in doing so, we realize there are many routes one can take to reach a destination, and the same is true with caregiving; Dr. Blight shares the uniqueness of each caregiving situation and that it is not a one-size-fits-all approach. He emphasizes self-care, and even with life’s confusing roundabouts, we don’t always get it right the first time – try “try again” and be easy on yourself regarding your caregiving learning curve – he cites, “showing, guessing, trying” (you’ll have to listen)! Dr. Blight offers the roadmap caregivers are seeking and inspiration they need. But this hour addresses this conversation from all angles, both giving and receiving care. We also recognize the fear factor surrounding care – and the statistics tell us we should certainly address these. But there’s something else we should address that often doesn’t receive the attention it deserves. It is more typically upstaged with the challenges, emotional and physical exhaustion. And that is the unexpected and inimitable rewards that arise from caregiving. Hidden amidst the confusion and the hustle and bustle are little pockets of perfection where time stands still and beautiful gifts of love are exchanged. THIS cannot be taken nor duplicated and it forever lines the heart with special depths of tender devotion that is a shared experience between the caregiver and receiver that transcends a lifetime and fleeces the soul with pearls of joy. What a beautiful gift to both give and receive. But that’s the beauty of gifts – they bring delight to both the giver and recipient. And so, it is with caregiving too. Aaron Blight, Ed.D., is an international speaker and consultant on caregiving, aging, and healthcare. He serves as an Adjunct Professor of Healthcare Management and Public Health at Shenandoah University. He has served as a family caregiver, home care company owner, caregiving scholar, and leader at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. He was recently recognized as a “Top 100 Healthcare Leader” by the International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare. To connect with Aaron, invite him to join your caregiver support group to discuss his book, purchase his book, When Caregiving Calls: Guidance as You Care for a Parent, Spouse, or Aging Relative, or learn more about his work, visit him at www.caregivingkinetics.com.Thank you, amazing Aging Rebels, around the world for tuning into the show!

Two Lifetimes: From Fear to Love with Patti Henry, MEd, LPC

If your life seems to be one long endless struggle, your relationships unsatisfying, you're angry, disillusioned, unwell, stuck or just plain unhappy, and you'd rather be sailing along joyfully, enjoying a life of freedom, peace and prosperity...The solution is moving from Lifetime One to Lifetime Two-without ever kicking the bucket.Join us as we welcome special guest, Patti Henry, MEd, LPC, a psychotherapist who has been in private practice since 1988, and author of Two Lifetimes: From Fear to Love. We’ll explore her novel concept of Two Lifetimes and the incredible possibilities for growth, healing and happiness when we lean into our full potential of authenticity. Patti Henry poses the all-important question of “which lifetime are you in today? The one that’s run by fear or the one that’s fueled on love?” This clever metaphor is one that graduates us from being controlled by our wounded child to being lovingly directed by our emotionally-mature adult. Moving into lifetime two means GROWING UP. Moving from Lifetime One where every emotion, decision and action is consciously or unconsciously driven by the hurt, rebellious "I'm not good enough" child inside us to Lifetime Two, where every emotion, decision and action is driven by the thoughtful, love-inspired, emotionally mature adult. Drawing from her personal experience of surviving an abusive alcoholic father, experiences with her own children, and cases with her many patients, Henry offers stories and anecdotes that will hit home. Henry is no stranger to overcoming life challenges, as you will learn in this episode her unwavering grit and resilience -- so inspiring! But we also put the spotlight on fear and it’s paralyzing effects which stunt our ability to thrive fully in adulthood (Lifetime 2) and she provides a wonderful blueprint for healing, rewriting the narratives (stories) from our youth (Lifetime 1) and even kicking that ghost driver out of our car! (Tune in to learn what we mean!) From beginning to end, this is truly an inspiring and transformative power-hour of enlightYOUment for everyone that wants to become center stage of their own lives, kick the baggage of their past to the curb and get in the full light of living their best life now!

Some Light at the End with Beth Cavenaugh

So often in life we find ourselves in situations looking for that glimmer of light to lead the way out of the darkness; as without it we felt lost in our sense of navigation. It’s so wonderful when that light appears because it is not only the answer, but our usher and guide, so welcomed. There are times in life we need such a light, a guiding hand to usher us through unfamiliar terrain, one certainly being a terminal diagnosis. It can be scary, feel like a dark place. The options can feel so limited. Joining us to offer Some Light at the End, is Beth Cavenaugh, RN, BSN, CHPN, author of just that book. Beth is a certified hospice and palliative care nurse, Reiki practitioner, and educator with over 14 years of experience in caring for patients at the end of their life. Compassion, patient autonomy, and transparent communication are at the core of her care philosophy. In this incredibly soul-enriching and deeply transparent hour, we discuss the all too familiar reality of grief, the many ways we can create meaningful end-of-life rituals, and we put the spotlight on hospice and how their care provided to patients can maximize quality of life and provide nurturing support for both the individual facing their own passing and their family. Beth shares some of her many experiences with patients such as when the family may be ready for hospice and the patient isn’t and vice-versa, defines a “beautiful death,” what the role of being a caregiver is like, how to know when it is time for hospice support and even how the process works to make the decision to accept hospice services and so much more. One thing is certain, more often than not when hospice nurses come into your home, facility or you to theirs, you’re going to feel like their “star camper of the week” because they love their patients and they lead with their hearts! Beth’s book is a wonderful guide for those seeking Some Light at the End: Your Bedside Guide for Peaceful Palliative and Hospice Care. Beth’s experience and wisdom illuminates how we can find peace and beauty in death, instead of exhaustion and fear. Her book offers the empowerment everyone is seeking during the final stages of their beautiful life. You can purchase it on Amazon or her website at www.BethCavenaugh where I invite you to connect with her and learn more about her hospice workshops for groups and individuals, where she demystified death and dying so this powerful moment will be embraced as a normalized and celebrated event. A must-listen power-hour of enlightyYOUment from beginning to end on a topic many of us can personally relate to and of course, know we will eventually face.

Compassion Heals: From Self-Care to Healthcare with “Patient Lee” Tomlinson

We carry out many roles in our lifetime and even throughout each and every day. Some of them we give little thought to, while others may require us to bring our A-Game or may even cause anxiety as we anticipate what’s ahead. That can certainly be the case when our role is the one of “patient.” When we access healthcare, we, as patients, find ourselves part of a care delivery system that also requires some patience on our part. While most health care experiences are hopefully positive ones, there are instances when care delivery falls short somewhere along the way. When this happens, it can add stress and even negatively impact our state of well-being. That’s where this week’s guest, “Patient Lee” Tomlinson, Award-winning television producer, movie studio executive and owner, former professional athlete, speaker and TED Talk presenter, comes in to revamp the provider / patient experience. Author of the new book, Compassion Heals: From Self-Care to Healthcare, Lee Tomlinson’s life mission is to inspire healthcare professionals to return compassionate care to its rightful place at the forefront of modern healthcare. Doing so will benefit patients, their families, the bottom line; and perhaps most importantly, their often suffering, “burned-out” selves. But finding this mission wasn’t even remotely easy – in fact, it’s a mission that found him.Unfortunately, during a recent battle with State 3+ throat cancer, “Patient Lee” became painfully aware of the trauma caused by treatment lacking in compassion –that drove him to the darkest of depths. What saved him from suicide was a tiny, simple, yet powerful act of compassion delivered by a loving doctor and friend. “Patient Lee” is alive today due to the combination of a lifetime of extraordinarily effective medical treatment and deeply kind, compassionate care. With his renewed zeal for life and newfound purpose, “Patient Lee” created the Compassion Heals Movement. This Movement is designed to reconnect America’s 20 million healthcare professionals with the compassion that got them into healthcare in the first place. Then, do whatever is necessary to prevent the “burn-out” that affects over 60% of these vital caretakers, rendering them unable to provide compassion to their patients, themselves, or anyone else. And finally, once healed of their own distress, to reignite these dedicated professionals, and inspire them to redouble their efforts in providing even more compassion than before – all to better heal their patients and the world. Wearing nothing but a hospital gown, Lee has already told his story on more than 200 stages around the world! You can learn more about him, purchase his book and connect by visiting him at www.LeeTomlinson.com. Or join his Compassion Heals Movement at www.challenge.LeeTomlinson.com where he invites all of us to commit to purposely providing one additional compassionate act daily for themselves or others, and sharing them for 7 days on his Compassion Heals Challenge website.

EIGHTYSOMETHINGS: Wisdom to Celebrate Growing Older with Dr. Katharine Esty

In this stereotype shattering Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightYOUment, we welcome Dr. Katharine Esty, PhD, a practicing psychotherapist and author of Eightysomethings: A Practical Guide to Letting Go, Aging Well, and Finding Unexpected Happiness. A widow, a mother, a grandmother, and an activist for aging well, Esty imparts incredible wisdom as she focuses on creating a new understanding of possibilities for living into older age. At 86 years young, she has learned first-hand the very wisdom she imparts and has many lessons on a variety of important issues, including dispelling myths about older age and a mission to end ageism, which limits and undermines the most experienced among us. Additionally, Dr. Esty feels it’s healthy to acknowledge what we’ve lost in the pandemic, and to grieve these losses—big and small—for our own welfare. But she also shares lessons for a post-pandemic life and how older adults can continue to live fulfilled, happy lives despite the challenges of aging and even COVID and in doing so, conveys positive messages of strength to all generations. In this inspiring hour, Esty describes life challenges, including how loneliness can influence health outcomes and the effects of isolation. We also take a deep dive into the negative impact of ageism, often hidden in surprising places. She shares the details of forming relationships in life’s later years including views on sexual attraction and special connections regarding intimate and loving bonds. Her most resonating message is one of resilience and bringing effervescence to our years as we learn we can have our cake and eat it too when it comes to growing older!

The Stories We Tell with Dr. Mary J. Cronin

Everyone has a story but many of us choose to keep them in the quiet crevices of our memory bank. But what if you were inspired to share your story beyond your own cognitive archive and actually put pen to paper? What would your story or even stories be about? What would they say about you and the life you’ve lived? What messages might they hold for your loved ones or even the greater world, both today and for future generations to come?In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy, we welcome special guest, Dr. Mary J. Cronin, an advisor for Write the Family, an intergenerational family storytelling program affiliated with Write the World for a powerful conversation on the potential capacity of sharing our untold stories. Be prepared to be inspired to begin your own storytelling journey or even write a memoir or micro-memoir, as Dr. Cronin addresses how engaging family members in telling stories can strengthen connections across generations, reassure younger family members when they hear how elders coped with disappointments and survived setbacks, create a strong and resilient sense of “intergenerational self” in young people, promote intergenerational communication and relationship building and more. We examine how something as simple as your story evokes memories and has the potential to bind generations together, promote healing, and even provide a sense of personal growth and newfound harmony and meaning-making. Dr. Cronin is a Research Professor at Boston College of Management, and the President of 4Q Catalyst, a business strategy consulting firm. She serves as director of the Boston Authors Club, the Encore Boston Network, and the Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs, and has authored 12 books on managing digital innovation and social impact. Combining research from Emory University, along with her family storytelling expertise, Dr. Mary Cronin shares out how rebuilding resilience and self-confidence comes down to the often-over-looked tradition of sharing stories of elders – from both good times and bad. In the end, listeners will be moved to begin their own storytelling adventure of leaving a written legacy and begin the exciting journey of The Stories We Tell. Dr. Cronin invites listeners to connect and join her Write the Family workshops by visiting www.writetheworld.com where anyone can experience the profound liberation and joy of storytelling, especially during these times of social isolation.

It’s a survivor story in a category of its own – one that does not dwell on tragedy but rather celebrates human ingenuity and the power of faith.

Midlife NO Crisis with Lisa Levine

Midlife Crisis is a familiar term that conjures up all kinds of images and behaviors. But what if we flipped the narrative and instead, enjoyed Midlife NO Crisis?! Enter age activist, Martha Beck Institute-Certified Life Coach, and heath coach, Lisa Levine, author of just that book, Midlife No Crisis: An Audacious Guide to Embracing 50 and Beyond. Lisa herself reached a turning point when she turned 50. Spending years in a successful career and even as an entrepreneur starting her own business, she always had a sneaking suspicion that something was calling her name. Getting through a diagnosis of Graves disease, infertility, and raising a daughter with Hashimoto’s Disease, sparked a passion within Levine to use food for healing. This was audacious for her because it required her to step out of her comfort zone and learn to enjoy veggies beyond carrot sticks. And that bold move turned her “midlife meaning-of-life crisis” when she was tired of her career into taking a leap of faith into the coaching world. Becoming a coach met her vociferous craving for more meaning in her life and she discovered what she can bring to the table (literally and metaphorically). In this inspiring hour, you’ll hear about her amazing journey, why she believes in living audaciously including five ways to do so! She discusses the value of a “stop doing” list, and how to step into midlife feeling empowered verses disenfranchised. Levine also shares why feeling “old” is inflammation in your body and mind and how to detox, including how change can be an opportunity for growth and so much more! You won’t want to miss the wisdom imparted guaranteed to empower everyone to embrace the years to come with vivacity!Today, Levine enjoys sharing tools to help people understand and move beyond their fears, shift their perspectives and, first and foremost, how to truly pay attention to what they are thinking, feeling and doing to get un-stuck and move towards the lives they truly want to be living. Even if they don’t know what that looks like yet. Her book, Midlife No Crisis, is an empowering read, encouraging both women and men to do something different when what their doing is no longer working. Levine says the secret to owning this next chapter of your life: Finding the audaciousness in and around you.

Reclaim Your Right to Grow Old with Kathleen O’Brien

You may have heard the voice of today’s guest before … but these days she’s using it to echo a different message, inviting everyone to Reclaim Your Right to Grow Old!Once dubbed “the most heard voice in America” by New York Times, Kathleen O’Brien was the voice of directory assistance throughout the 1980’s and 90’s. If you dialed 411 at any time from a landline, it was her voice you heard. And while technology and times have changed over the decades, with an abundance of education, research and a career portfolio under her belt, at the proud age of 72, Kathleen has a timeless message of wisdom to share as author of her new book, “Reclaim Your Right to Grow Old: How to Immerse Yourself In, Be Curious About, and Celebrate Life’s Most Important Stage.” In her book, Kathleen takes a deep dive into societies misguided attitude towards aging and highlights all of the wonders that lie ahead for those who dare to grow old. Reclaim Your Right to Grow Old is filled with what might seem like surprising advice in today’s seemingly overwhelmingly anti-aging culture. Kathleen offers many messages including why fear can be a great motivator, why she believes we should be proud to reveal our age, her views on the marketing machine behind the beauty and wellness industry and how that is impacting our views on aging as well as respect for older adults and even seeing time and death as your ally. She won’t tell you to age gracefully – but she is all about Aging GreatFULLy and even celebrating your eccentricities! It’s a must-listen power-hour of enlightYOUment you won’t want to miss!

The Heart of Home: Home Care Conversations with Merrily Orsini

Home may be where the heart is … but perhaps each home takes on its own symbolic heart too.In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy we put the spotlight on HOME. Specifically, The Heart of Home, as we welcome special guest, Merrily Orsini, for home care conversations every listener will truly appreciate! Merrily Orsini is Founder and Board Chair of corecubed, and considered a thought leader in the in-home care services industry. In this must-listen power-hour of enlightYOUment, Orsini shares why home care isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach and explains why choices for aging-in-place are so complicated. But, despite the challenges, Orsini provides a simple overview to begin the decision-making process as to when, where, and how to begin making decisions, either for yourself or on behalf of a loved one. We also discuss intergenerational living, healthcare at home, the importance of a social infrastructure or support system, why health care at home isn’t the model, and how assistive technology is changing the way we can continue to live and thrive independently, helping parents with Alzheimer’s or dementia, telehealth, aging in place, long-term care insurance and so much more! But most of all, hearts are tender, whole and complete when it comes to home. So home is ultimately where we most want to be, wherever that is – perhaps even ever-changing. But we do know that home is a place we feel loved, secure, peaceful and happy. So, while our home may change throughout -- and even over the years – perhaps our primary goal is to ensure wherever we go, or the decisions we make on behalf of others, is to live in a place we can call “The Heart of Home.” Orsini’s business ownership began with a geriatric care management model in-home care agency, a venture that garnered her the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 1996. She is the past Chair of the Private Duty Homecare Association of America and has served on the boards of the National Association for Home Care and Hospice and the National Association of Geriatric Care Managers (now Aging Life Care Professionals). In 2017, Orsini won a Lifetime Achievement in Business Award, sponsored by the Stevie Awards for Women in Business. She is also the leader, creator and host of the Help Choose Home Podcast, which focuses on educating the masses on how to and when to choose healthcare at home in later life.

Life After Death!? Exploring Afterlife Connections with Mike Anthony

It’s been a question since the dawn of time. And truth be told, one you have probably pondered many times in your own life. What REALLY happens when we DIE?Depending on beliefs, faith, and views, our ideas about this, can certainly vary. But imagine being part of an experience that you never saw coming. One that led you down a path of discovery, which put uncovering the answers to this question to the forefront of your life.That’s exactly what happened with Mike Anthony, who was a bartender at a busy Broadway show when just before intermission he received the call that his father had suddenly died. This was a devastating loss to his entire family. However, when a stranger’s unpredictable phone call delivers a message that Mike’s dad had contacted her from “the other side,” it kicks off a chain of events that entirely changed Mike’s family’s perspective on life, death and the transcendent nature of love. In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy, we welcome professional actor, Mike Anthony, author of “Love, Dad: How My Father Died…Then Told Me He Didn’t,” who details his incredible and true story as he pulls himself out of despair, and alongside his family, finds a true connection and communication with his dad once again. Given the transformative nature of the experience, he couldn’t help but share what happened, hoping to bring others the peace he’d discovered. So compelling is his story, that Netflix chose to feature it in three episodes of their series, Surviving Death. His eye-opening book pushes the boundaries of what we think we know, unlocking the door to new and exhilarating possibilities. What might it be like to know that death is truly not the end? A must-listen and riveting power-hour of enlightYOUment for everyone who is interested in this topic, has questioned what happens after we die, has had an after-death connection or experienced an unexplained phenomenon, paranormal activity or is interested in psychic connections with those departed as it relates to grief and even healing -- as Mike Anthony candidly shares his personal experiences and notes current research in some of these areas as well.

Dr. Misak does regular YouTube shows teaching quantum bio-electric health concepts, has been published multiple times in Naturopathic Doctor News and Review (NDNR), and does regular radio or talks teaching an analytical natural approach to health.

What's Your Next? The Blueprint for Creating Your Freedom Lifestyle w/Dr. David Phelps

Life is full of NEXTS … but some are truly a crossroad that will determine our entire trajectory and that single choice can rest in how our life will unfold. In this powerfully liberating Aging GreatFULLy episode, we welcome guest Dr. David Phelps, DDS, author of WHAT’S YOUR NEXT? The Blueprint for Creating Your Freedom Lifestyle. Dr. Phelps experienced his own pinnacle moment of truth, deliberating his own “What’s Your Next? intersection, in his real-life emotional experience of standing over the gurney of his 12-year-old daughter as she was about to be wheeled into the operating room for a liver transplant. He found himself overcome with a sense of helplessness. And worse, knowing she would need his loving support and care in recuperation with the demands of living with acute lymphocytic leukemia. But his real-life reality was that he was trapped by a business that kept him wedded to a treadmill that allowed him no time to support her. And it was in that moment that he made the decision of His Next – stepping out of his comfort zone and on a leap of faith, choosing his Freedom Lifestyle. That day of his wakeup call, he made the critical decision to build a life that afforded him the freedom of time to be with his daughter instead of a traditional path that would “give away” his time to a career and business that he’d spent building for decades. He pursued a path of self-knowledge, relationship building and informed capital acquisition that resulted in such success that others asked him for guidance. Out of a meeting in his living room, with a number of friends who wanted to know how he had untangled himself from his professional practice to achieve a lifestyle of time-freedom – came Freedom Founders – an organization that helps others achieve the Freedom Lifestyle. Today, David is a nationally recognized speaker on creating Freedom, helps other professionals become dreamers, then strategically manifest those dreams into Freedom. He authors a monthly newsletter, "Path to Freedom" and hosts "The Dentist Freedom Blueprint" podcast.In helping others determine WHAT’S THEIR NEXT, David has blazed a trail and created a community of people who are supporting each other and planning consciously for a life that affords them time to spend with their families, with their special interests or mentoring and serving others in ways that creates meaning and fulfillment.

Peace trEATy with FOOD!

Have there been times in your life you feel food is the enemy in your battle to get fit and lose those extra pounds? What if you could make a Peace trEATy with food? We love food! It’s nourishing, vital and of course, enjoyed in so many ways! So, let’s make peace with and sense of this important part of our lives once and for all!Join us for an empowering episode as guest, Todd Nyholm, author of “Ah, Food, Why Do You Trouble My So Much?” shares why food isn’t the enemy in your battle to lose weight and why you don’t need another diet… but instead, you need your food to work for you, rather than against you. As a somatic therapist and holistic educator, Nyholm helps people discover how to reprogram their perception about food, nutrition and most importantly, themselves. He reminds us that diets aren’t one size fits all and often are not connected to one’s willpower. Nyholm says diets fail because people have not changed the underlying mental, emotional and physical programming that drives their behavior. Discover why it’s important to pull back the layers of why we do what we do when it comes to food and drink and in terms of “feeding” our lives, including habits and motivations from all the way back to when we were kids! Nyholm’s book isn’t a book about diets. It’s a book about discovering and working with your relationship with food in real time. For many, the subject of food and eating has left knots of emotional wounds. But through a series of questions and answers, readers are able to discover a lot of insight into the reasons behind their food behaviors. And with the answers revealed, success can certainly follow!

Kicking Pain in the pASSt! with David E. Frost

Have you dreamed of Kicking Pain in the pASSt? In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy, we combat PAIN like never before because if we’re going to get in the full light of living our best life now, we don’t want pain to impede our best of plans. And while pain definitely can be a quality-of-life spoiler, not all pain is bad. Join this amazing conversation with special guest David E. Frost, a NFPT Certified Master Fitness Trainer, rowing Coach and award-winning adjunct professor, as we take a deep dive into this topic that impacts most of us and certainly more so as we grow older. Dave helps us kick pain not only in the pASSt -- but in some cases, perhaps bid it farewell. Together, we'll discover the top five chronic PAIN’s experienced by older adults, including what we can do to prevent, remediate, or mitigate some of the effects, the key differences between acute and chronic pain, the two dimensions of pain, how pain subjectively and objectively changes as we age, and surprisingly, even some potential benefits of pain. Dave speaks of the “Art of the Possible” and in this inspiring episode, listeners will be encouraged to realize what is within their control. He reminds us there is so much we can do to not only make sense of our pain, but to take charge of it. From sensible footwear, smart phones, intimacy, sleep, posture, too much sitting, diet, exercise, controlling stress, and many other choices well within our command, we can absolutely kick much of our pain in the pASSt!In a world of polypharmacy, we discuss viable alternatives to painkillers, NSAIDS, and other popular prescriptions, and how our bodies have their own internal storehouse of pain relievers, otherwise known as oxytocin. And of course, it wouldn’t be the Aging GreatFULLy show if we didn’t discuss the importance of attitude, gratitude and happiness and the essential role they play regarding our experience with pain and positive aging. Dave Frost is passionate about adding life to our years, and doing so as pain free as possible. As author of Kaboomer: Thriving and Striving Into Your Nineties, he is also Founder and leads Well Past Forty LLC, to actively promote both wellness and fitness for athletes of all ages and abilities. He specializes in nutrition, endurance and strength training for people who deal with cancer, MS, PD, CP, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

New Year’s ResoYOUtions! With Brendon Watt

It's finally here, happy New Year 2021! There’s so much to celebrate and this year the focus is on YOU! But instead of making a long list of New Year’s resolutions, this year, we’re doing something different on the Aging GreatFULLy show. Don’t miss this power-hour of enlightYOUment, as we welcome returning guest, Brendon Watt, Speaker and Best-Selling author of Relationships: Are You Sure You Want One, for a conversation on how anyone can reinvent themselves, how to end self-sabotage for good and even how to come back from rock bottom! So, this year, we’re not going to make grandiose and lofty goals only to put ourselves under undue pressure of a pass / failure come March. Nor will we sign up to subject ourselves to the stress each day of having not been “good enough” and get caught up in that underachievement cycle that leads to self-sabotage day after day and often goes on for years—or even a lifetime. But instead, this year, we’re choosing New Year's ResoYOUtions. ResoYOUtions puts us in the driver’s seat of our own lives. ResoYOUtions are about personal empowerment … as we embrace reinventing what already exists. Accepting the awesome us that is; and deciding to make some positive improvements through asking ourselves the right questions. But the most important part of New Year's resoYOUtions is the answers we reveal to those questions we’ll be asking ourselves.

A powerful show and perfect one to begin the New Year! If you want to be inspired as we begin 2021, this is a must-listen episode giving you the tools to create change and the life you want!

Leave Your Light On: Navigating the Lighthouse of Life After Loss w/Shelley Buck & Kathy Curtis

Aging GreatFULLy brings listeners a heartwarming show on an important topic for everyone, especially those who have endured loss of any kind. Join us for “Leave Your Light On: Navigating the Lighthouse of Life After Loss,” as we welcome special guests Shelley Buck, Kathy Curtis and honor the illuminating life of Ryder Buck in this transformative hour that will endear all. This year in particular, has been one where we as a world have endured losses of all kinds and in this episode, our guests share firsthand how to come back out of the dark tunnels of despair from the most devasting losses one can imagine. We also talk about the mysterious emotion grief— and how it can cripple us, empower us, and at times, be a major motivator in what changes us. Kathy and Shelley talk about using the light from our passed loved ones to shape that recovery and how to use it as a tool to live with more energy and purpose. We bring this show to our global family of listeners as we enter the holidays knowing it is a time of challenge for many, as we are certain the lessons of parenting and tribulations, combined with the power of Ryder’s larger-than-life spirit will hold promise and bring profound messages to others for living in the light and ultimately being the lighthouse keeper once again for others. And we will celebrate light, love and learn how to find our way back living after experiencing loss as we explore in depth the book, Leave Your Light On: The Musical Mantra Left Behind by an Illuminating Spirit, by Shelley Buck & Ryder Buck with Kathy Curtis. Our guest, Shelley Buck moved to California after college to follow her dream of working for Disney. It was there she met and fell in love with her husband, Chris, who worked in Animation. After they married and had their first child, Ryder, she stayed home to be a full-time mom to him and the two brothers who followed. Shelley is a storyteller and artist which she expresses through her original jewelry at www.Shelrae.com. Shelley shares her journey of having a child diagnosed with cancer, what it was like to experience that and then to suffer the most unimaginable loss. But her story is one that brings a lifeline to others and some essential messages for those who have ever been in the darkness. And that is, how exploring the light that our loved ones leave behind can be the bridge between that light and our own healing. Ryder Buck lived a short but charmed life west coast, where he fell in and out of love, and formed an indie band, Ryder Buck & the Breakers, that made waves all across the LA area. After a 9-month battle with cancer, Ryder emerged disease-free and fearlessly followed his dreams of changing people’s lives through his music. When tragedy met him on a dark highway, the light he had so fiercely protected throughout his life became limitless. His words and songs continue to carry that light forward. Ryder received the Flame of Hope Award (posthumously) from a local cancer facility where he and his band played for cancer survivors. Ryder’s dad, Chris Buck, is the producer of the film, Frozen and Frozen 2. Ryder became the inspiration for a new character in Frozen 2 and for one of the films songs. You can learn more about Ryder Buck’s infinite legacy and music by visiting www.RyderBuckMusic.com. Kathy Curtis moved into Shelley’s neighborhood when they were both 12 years old and an instant, lifelong friendship took root. She has worked as a healing artist and writer since 1991. Her programs support the transformation of grief, illness, and emotional barriers through creative expression. She is the author of Invisible Ink, a memoir about her own journey through grief. The unique writing process that brought her so much healing has since become a successful program, online and at various venues in the Midwest. Kathy’s intimate connection to the Buck family, combined with her writing and healing background, made her the perfect person to partner with Shelley on the creation of this book.

PERFECT: A Path to Love, Forgiveness and Transformation with Judi Miller

In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy we embark on a path alongside our guest, author Judi Miller, and her not-so-ordinary journey of generational and individual healing. For those who have been curious about near-death experiences, past lives, and who have always felt different for reasons you have never understood, this is a must-listen show.Judi Miller was a highly success CPA and corporate finance executive, who unknown to her co-workers, lived with a frightening secret. Throughout her life, Judi always felt different. But she also lived in terror of the night and the possibility of sexual assault continually plagued her, yet she never understood why. Happily married with children, her fears made life a modern-day nightmare, but the mystery as to why haunted her as she knew of nothing in her own personal background that would warrant this constant state of fear she continually faced. Finally, she set out on a quest to unravel the mystery that had such a hold over her life and this ultimately led to an amazing and unexpected life changing journey she never saw coming. Her growth was no longer aimed at making herself better; instead, she began to focus on finding her intrinsic wholeness. This shift brought her numerous lessons around the nature of the creator, forgiveness, and the trajectory each soul follows throughout the course of many lives. Tune in to this power-hour of enlightYOUment as we understand why she came to write the book, Perfect: A Path to Love, Forgiveness and Transformation, and how her transformational journey brought the right people together in the right order, to heal wrongs committed decades ago; before her birth and which left shadows on her soul. In the end, it becomes evident we all have the capacity to open our hearts to connect with our true selves and allow the love that heals and direct us towards the light and path we are meant to take to awaken, prosper and serve. We discover ultimately that faith is paramount in our journey of life as we aspire towards living with more passion, fulfillment, clarity, joy and seeing life in all of its splendidly imperfect perfection.

Hope, Empowerment & Maintaining Health While Growing Older with Dr. Joe

There are certain diseases commonly referred to as “age-related diseases” but that doesn’t necessarily mean just because you’re growing older, they’re predestined for you. In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy, we welcome Dr. Joe Nieusma, Founder and CEO of Superior Toxicology, for an important conversation about the top ten diseases commonly affecting older adults, the typical prescriptions prescribed, as well as some alternative remedies and natural approaches to help circumvent the affects or even avoid the risks altogether. Dr. Joe encourages us to adopt healthy lifestyle approaches early and reminds us that the little things we do can make a big difference in our health. One thing is certain, we learn that it’s never too late to begin positive and healthy habits in the right direction. And the more we know, the better decisions we can make regarding our own health and wellness. We don’t have a crystal ball to forecast the future. But we can certainly implement a positive mindset, good habits, well care, and make strides each day to position our mind, body and spirit to be in the healthiest state possible! It’s an important conversation and in the end, we realize the more we know about these things, the more we can do to circumvent many of them. This is an empowering hour, encouraging listeners to take charge of their health, one step at a time, one day at a time.

Rockin’ Role Models: How Seniors Are Saving the World with Dr. Thelma Reese

Join this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightYOUment as we welcome guest, Dr. Thelma Reese, co-author of How Seniors Are Saving the World, for an empowering dialogue on how older adults are also some of today’s boldest experts, activists and leaders! In her book, co-authored with BJ Kittredge, they share inspiring true stories of seniors working with vigor and purpose. And they argue that instead of thinking of the 60’s and beyond as the twilight years, that instead, this is the time to shine in the spotlight and take your stage! Tune into this inspiring episode as Reese shares why retirement should be UNretirement, why exiling seniors to nursing homes is not only dangerous, it’s our loss, how volunteerism is being transformed by older adults and how purpose and meaning are recharging love and intimacy for seniors. We even unpack in great detail the damaging ramifications of ageism—both how it’s not only counterproductive as a society—but how it insidiously makes its way into our own lives in ways we may not even be aware. Dr. Thelma Reese is also the author of The New Senior Woman and the New Senior Man and creator of the blog, www.ElderChicks.com. She’s a retired professor of English and Education, the former spokesperson for Hooked on Phonics, and has long been active in national and Philadelphia-based educational and cultural initiatives.

Our Wisdom Years: Growing Older with Joy, Fulfillment, Resilience & No Regrets

We’re all growing older, so why not be experts at this thing we’re so fortunate to be able to do! But society more often urges us to fight aging rather than embrace it. We are discouraged from slowing down, implored to keep our wrinkles at bay, and pressured to be “productive” in our retirement.But as today’s special guest, psychologist Dr. Charles Garfield, asserts in his new book, Our Wisdom Years: Growing Older with Joy, Fulfillment, Resilience and No Regrets, the later years are not defined by success and self-mastery like they are for young adults. Rather, those entering their sixties find that, instead of anxiously asking, “Do I have what it takes to complete?” they find themselves wondering, “Do I have what it takes to lead a fulfilling life.”As founder of the Shanti Project, an internationally honored volunteer organization dedicated to the care of the dying, Dr. Garfield is very well acquainted with this shift from “success thinking” to “legacy thinking”. In later years, the drive to keep accomplishing is usually less pressing than the desire to nurture loving relationships and to contribute to something that will live on. Dr. Garfield reminds us that we ourselves can be the difference between zero and one, reminding us each of the important role we can each play in the lives of others. To address this shift in values, Dr. Garfield offers an invaluable roadmap to help those entering later years assess what they truly value, discover latent interests and passions that have been abandoned for more practical pursuits, and invest in the relationships they value most. Drawing on his own experience with aging, along with the accounts of several others, that he has counseled through the years, Dr. Garfield shares a new perspective to later life, and along with it, new visions and discoveries. From asking listeners to embrace a period of radical self-discovery, to discovering and defining their own joy, to forgiving those who have wronged them, including self-forgiveness, and so much more, this is a must-listen power-hour of enlightYOUment that listeners will find thought-provoking and continue to ponder well after the hour has ended. Dr. Charles Garfield has innumerable honors, accolades and distinguished accomplishments including earning a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of California at Berkeley. He writes for and serves on the editorial board of Greater Good, a national e-magazine from the University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Science and the Greater Good. To connect with him or buy his book, Our Wisdom Years, visit www.CharlesGarfield.com or to learn more about his Shanti Project, visit www.Shanti.org.

My Last Eight Thousand Days with Lee Gutkind

We have no way of knowing how many days of grand living we’ll be gifted. We’ve certainly become inured to the reality that life discloses our experiences moment by moment in real-time and it is up to us to determine how we choose to finesse all the “whatisness” life brings our way. In this authentically captivating episode of Aging GreatFULLy, we welcome the founding editor of Creative Nonfiction magazine, and architect of the genre, Lee Gutkind, author and editor of more than thirty books. He’s appeared on many national radio and television shows, including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Good Morning America, and National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. Even before Lee Gutkind was spotlighted in Vanity Fair Magazine in 1997 as “the Godfather behind creative nonfiction” he was its most active advocate and practitioner. In 1991, he founded Creative Nonfiction, the first and the largest literary journal to publish narrative/creative nonfiction exclusively. All the while, Gutkind continued to practice what he preached, immersing himself in diverse worlds for months and years and producing dramatic and intimate creative nonfiction books about subjects as rich and varied as the motorcycle subculture, child and adolescent mental illness, baseball umpires, veterinary medicine and organ transplantation. However, his latest writing endeavor wasn’t looking outward into the lives of others, but instead inward, towards his very own. Undertaking perhaps his most difficult and challenging work to date, Gutkind took to the task of writing his own memoir, My Last Eight Thousand Days: An American Male in His Seventies. In his revealing, candid and vivid portrait of aging, Gutkind examines aging like we’ve never seen before. And while the words on the pages are his experiences, thoughts and stories, having read them, I feel they may relate in some way to to every listener, as Gutkind has managed to unearth the truth on aging like only he can. A must-listen, wisdom-infused episode that is full of fun, because isn’t that what life is about? But we also shift our attention to some topics that are important and serious that need our attention too. And Gutkind shares candidly the challenges he faced in growing older, including making connections, making meaning of it all, and what he did to find his way to the many better todays and wonderful tomorrows to come. This is definitely a power-hour of enlightYOUment that delivers on so many levels you won’t want to miss! Gutkind’s memoir is a fantastic read for everyone that I highly recommend—to get your copy of My Last Eight Thousand Days: An American Male in His Seventies, or to learn more about or connect with Lee Gutkind visit www.LeeGutkind.com.

The Art of Assisting Aging Parents with Teresa Moerer

We love our parents! But do you ever worry about yours as they grow older? Or even your own future aging circumstances? Providing support to a loved one can seem overwhelming and you’re not alone if you find yourself in this role currently.According to Pew Research’s 2015 data, there are 40.4 million unpaid caregivers of adults ages 65 and older in the United States. Of that group, nine-in-ten are providing care for an aging relative, and a plurality is caring for a parent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.What if there was an ebb and flow to caregiving and time spent supporting and nurturing loved ones was redirected to its fullest potential while still allowing time for ourselves? What if caring for aging parents was an art?In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy we welcome author and physical therapist, Teresa Moerer, who faced similar challenges when caring for her parents and patients. She also knows the joys of success as she assists people to achieve their optimal potential. In fact, she a created a unique four-step method, Experi-Age, and wrote a book, Aging Parents: Discover the Journey to Honor Your Parents, Create Treasured Memories, And Live Life to The Fullest. Teresa highlights what she calls an Art of Assisting Aging Parents. Teresa gently guides readers (and patients) through how to turn daily activities and healthy living strategies into meaningful and affective experiences. Her Four-Step Method teaches people how to help you or your parents increase motor and thinking skills, instill healthy habits to promote wellness, make smooth transitions and set quality goals, reach their highest state of health and well-being. Through Teresa’s course, BOSS Caregiver Blueprint, she teaches people how to have a vibrant life while also assisting aging parents. We all aspire to live and age well through well-celebrated and successful life experiences. In this episode we uncover so much about that plays into the premise improving our lives, such as how even those rare relationship encounters matter, why our brain likes surprises, aging in place, the importance of a life vision, why you need to hone your strengths, being an active listener, and even the art of living itself and so much more!A must listen power-hour of enlightYOUment for anyone that has parents or is one… because if you’re aging – this show is for you.

Rising Courageously From Darkness to Dreams with Rebecca Bea Thompson!

In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy we embark on a real-life journey where dreams that once felt forever on hold were surprisingly discovered taking the path less traveled. Guest Rebecca Bea Thompson, experienced speaker, writer, consultant, facilitator and coach shares her chronicle of personal courage and spiritual expansion that defies conventional wisdom. Frustrated by her (now ex-) husband’s increasing alcoholism, Rebecca embarked on a healing journey which led her to explore a variety of spiritual practices. Following years of spousal devotion and co-dependency, she eventually learned how to love herself, and found freedom from a situation in which she thought she was stuck. From engineer skeptic, she made a fascinating right turn, and discovered a new lens on life. Along the way, she became a Reiki master, certified Crystal Therapist and Shamanic coach, and incorporates these areas of expertise into her consulting and coaching practice. But it’s her talks with the moon that will intrigue many. In her new book, Rebecca Rising: How I found courage and self-love through friendship, coaching and conversations with the moon, this memoir chronicles her healing journey. Additionally, Rebecca shares the life planning process created over a twenty-year period with her best friend, Darlene Ryan. Committed to the friendship and the richness it held for each, they made a pact to always connect on Sundays at 8:30. As a result, they eventually created a book together, Sunday at 8:30: Two Decades of Life Planning, which includes worksheets prompting others to create their own life plan. In her candidly authentic reveal, Rebecca reminds that hope can be hiding in some unsuspecting and surprising places, and that with an open mind, we can achieve clarity beyond our wildest imaginings. A must-listen power-hour of enlightYOUment for anyone and everyone who has ever felt stuck in a situation they didn’t know a way out of, for those seeking strength towards life changes, and for those curious about alternative approaches towards spiritual expansion.

Unbounded: Journey To Your Within with Aaron McCormick

"Unbounded: Journey to Your Within!" This week's Aging GreatFULLy with special guest, author, speaker Aaron McCormick!Tune in to his inspiring and true story of how even when all the odds are stacked against you, your inner spirit has the ability to prevail, ushering you to unparalleled success so you can then light the path for others to do the same!By all rights, Aaron McCormick should have been a casualty of his upbringing, "destined," as he says, "to be crippled by almost every externally imposed and there for, self-imposed limitation you could imagine." Raised on the south side of Chicago, in poverty by a single mother with no education, deserted by a father who was likely an undiagnosed bi-polar schizophrenic, and tightly controlled by an extreme fundamentalist religion that allowed no personal freedom whatsoever, including getting a college education or playing sports, Aaron ultimately defied those expectations of failure. In fact, he succeeded spectacularly. With no college education, beginning is his early twenties, he became a hugely successful corporate enterprise software salesman, making millions of dollars for his employers and himself, climbing from company to company until he was honored with the prestigious “Best of IBM” award bestowed on only 1% of the company’s 400,000 employees. Along the way, he also earned an MBA, without an undergraduate degree!His journey is one of incredible epiphany and one that took incredible courage to stand up to and escape the fundamentalist religious cult in which he was raised, ultimately resulting in the loss of all familiar -- his friends and family. But what he realized to be most fulfilling was the reverence for the power of personal introspection and the universal wisdom right before us all. Aaron decided it was time to step out and share it with those seeking more fulfillment and success in career, love and relationships and personal power. His book, Unbounded: Journey To Your Within is an incredible story and his words will capture readers attention from the very beginning as he shares his unfiltered story that ultimately shows sometimes we just have to take the long way home, a winding road be it as it may—back to our authentic ourselves. For more information or to connect with Aaron, visit him at www.aaronmccormic.com Don’t miss this power-hour of enlightYOUment, full of momentum, inspiration and proof, that we all have the ability to change our circumstances and rise, unbounded, journeying to your within!If you enjoy this episode or the many others, we invite you to share it and / or leave a show review!

Wisdom Healing Qigong with Master Mingtong Gu

You’ve may have heard the term Qigong before and if so it’s likely you’ve equated it with just another form of slow martial arts. But as practiced in Wisdom Healing Qigong, it’s actually a 5,000-year-old Chinese Healing system that has significant implications for those that fear contracting COVID-19, those that are suffering from it and anyone who is dealing with physical illness or emotional pain and stress in in the world today. As Founder of the Chi Center, Master Mingtong Gu is the man who brought a profound 5,000 year old form of Chinese healing to the West in the form of Wisdom Healing Qigong, and is bringing it forward as a vital practice in the time of COVID-19.As a child growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, Master Mingtong endured hunger, poverty, and a long separation from his birth family. Despite these incredible hardships, he became the first from his village to attend college, earning a bachelor’s degree in mathematics followed by two master’s degrees, including an MFA from Ohio State University. As a graduate student in art, Master Mingtong discovered the treasures of his own culture through the spiritual iconography of Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism, while practicing yoga, Tantric Buddhism, and qigong.In 1997, Master Mingtong returned to China for Qigong training under Grandmaster Dr. Pang Ming, a Qigong grandmaster trained in Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, and the founder of the world’s largest Qigong hospital. During his training, Master Mingtong observed thousands of cases of chronic and “incurable” diseases being healed at this “medicine-less” Qigong hospital, which treated 200,000+ patients with more than 185 different illnesses, with a 95% effective improvement rate.Could that medicine-less Qigong facility be duplicated in the West? Sold on its benefits, Master Mingtong dedicates his life to advancing the practice and a place to teach it in the United States. Hence, The Chi Center just outside of Santa Fe NM was founded to bring Wisdom Healing Qigong to thousands of people in the United States, China, and Europe through his retreats, workshops, books, and online and educational programs. To learn more about the work of Master Mingtong Gu, visit him at www.ChiCenter.com. But today, he offers listeners a free gift as he joins the Aging GreatFULLy show to share how Wisdom Healing Qigong can help you resist the COVID-19 virus and other illnesses and ailments as well as decrease your stress, feel more connected in a time of isolation, and even heal faster if you’ve been stricken by viruses, health conditions and even feeling anxious and overwhelmed or even seek improved wellness and peace of the mind, body and spirit.

Reignite, Redesign and Reestablish Thriving Relationships

Relationships are the fabric of our lives! And recently many of them have either become stronger or strained, depending of the unique circumstances. With self-isolation and working-from-home underway, all around the world, millions of relationships are currently being done differently and couples are having to adjust to a new way of being together – or not being together.Brendon Watt is a speaker, life mentor, and the co-author of Relationship: Are You Sure You Want One? and co-founder of the Relationship Done Different workshop series.He understands that the constraints of home isolation will prove to be too much for many couples. “A lot of people will be thinking, ‘You know, I can live with this person for four hours a day but put them in a house with me for 24 hours a day, and I can’t stand it,’” he explains. “The current situation is highlighting just how vital it is to actively create your relationship, rather than just maintain it,” he adds.Brendon is well-regarded for his honest, pragmatic (and sometimes irreverent) approach to love, sex and relationships. He is available to provide a wide range of relationship tips and advice, specifically designed to help the millions of couples currently dealing with intimacy overload.“The relationships that are most likely to fail right now are those where the parties are waiting for the relationship to go back to normal. The relationships that are going to succeed are those where the parties are saying, ‘Okay, there is no yesterday anymore. How do we create the future together? What do we want the future of our relationship to look like? What choices do we need to make today, to create that future together,’” Brendon advises.A must-listen power-hour of enlightenment for everyone, especially during this unprecedented time

Journeying From Darkness to Light

Join the Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightenment and be inspired by one woman's journey from darkness to light!Author Athena Demetrios joins us to share her powerful spiritual experiences and guidance that healed the traumatic childhood wounds impacting much of her life. In her book, Walking Between Worlds: A Spiritual Odyssey, Athena courageously shares her revelations of a deeply painful -- yet uplifting -- journey out of the darkness and into light, and with her, she brings an unwavering message to others who have lived with and experienced trauma, abuse and tragic life events. And that is that YOU too can heal and enjoy the life you aspire and deserve.Having grown up in abject poverty in a dysfunctional and alcoholic environment, at the age of six years old, Athena was terrorized and repeatedly raped by a repulsive boarder who lived in the root cellar. Athena succumbed to a downward spiral of melancholy and despair leading her to push people away. She experienced rage, self-destructive love relationships and remained guarded. Struggling with recurring thoughts of suicide, she desperately sought answers. Through a desire to both understand and experience more in life, she bravely revisited horrific buried memories of her past, and even finds forgiveness to those who had caused her harm. Through hypnotic regression that enabled her to explore repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse she regained her power. We share Athena's odyssey as she continues on to overcome victim-hood and peel away the layers of pain and despair through exploration of the spirit--emerging with hope, insight, forgiveness and a newfound love for life as she makes peace with the past that had power over her for far too long. Join this powerful conversation, as Athena shares her odyssey towards healing, transformation and achieving a fulfilled and spiritually guided life!To learn more about Athena Demitrios visit her at www.IAMwithin.com.

His book, Cowboy Ethics, a best-seller with more than 150,000 copies in circulation, and two follow-up volumes, Cowboy Values and The Try, put a spotlight on the importance of shared values and personal character in our society. Along the way, Jim established a nonprofit foundation, the Center for Cowboy Ethics and Leadership, to help support and amplify those ongoing programs.Now Jim has expanded his focus, becoming a passionate evangelist for fitness as a way of life. In his speaking engagements, he reminds audiences that being in shape helps older adults stay mobile, active, and independent, enabling a quality of life no amount of money can buy. Fitness could also play an important role in combating serious chronic diseases and controlling health care costs as our nation’s over-50 population balloons."JUST MOVE Book A New Approach to Fitness After Fifty," highlights Jim's journey from living an unhealthy, sedentary life of being a poster-child for looming old age, to now being 78 years young and in the best shape of his life!

Refurbishing Life After Loss with Gerontologist Holley Kelley

Refurbishing Life After Loss with Gerontologist Holley Kelley: Being in the amazing grace of life means that we will also experience loss. This show discusses this all-true reality of this part of our journey. We discuss how planning for our own future passing is so very important for inspiring your grand new beginning and a loving gift to those you love and the importance of living a regret-free life of appreciation. We also talk about the challenging stages of grief and that all loss are not people. And how animals grieve too. And that all losses are not human—we experience many kinds of losses in our lives. But what we do discover is that losses can serve as opportunities for growth if we give ourselves the chance to be a student of life, in all of life’s hard encounters. The psychological term for positive transformation following survival of a traumatic event is called post-traumatic growth. And this can be an opportunity to discover the most about ourselves, including new possibilities following suffering—and rediscovering ourselves and life again too. I call experiencing a personal metamorphous… because we are never the same. Because a loss is just that. We have endured incredible loss. We are forever different… thus I named this show “Refurbishing” life after loss, because the definition of refurbishing is “renovation.” We cannot be “restored” to who we were, we must “renovate,” and redecorate. And walking with extreme grief means sometimes we may feel the need to even resuscitate ourselves and eventually reconstruct our way to a life we really love again. And occasionally we need to give ourselves permissions to do so. There is life after loss. One day at a time, and through practical and positive processes, support, time, dedication, and beautiful honoring, cherishing, remembering and holding those we love close, including ourselves, everyone can find their way into loving and refurbishing life after loss.

Heart Reconnection with Lee McCormick

On this Aging GreatFULLy learn to harness your heart’s innate ability to reclaim it’s wholeness. With guest / author Lee McCormick you will enjoy this insightful and soul-enhancing power hour-of enlightenment! Tapping into 300 years of collective wisdom from 6 renowned leaders whose time-tested approaches to heart-based strategies have shown remarkable success!It started simply with a group of friends sitting around a table in Santa Fe, New Mexico—experts in addiction recovery, psychology, health sciences, and the wisdom and native traditions of healing—sharing their concerns about the low rate of tradition addiction therapy. “Our goal was to identify healing processes that we knew from experience were the most helpful and, by combining efforts, develop a new program and perhaps a new paradigm for working with people whohave addiction. Our goal quickly expanded to include people who have experienced trauma or are struggling with any other conditions that keep them from moving forward in their lives. We wanted more people to succeed and experience the freedom and joy that we know is on the other side of the struggle. We stepped off the well-worn trail and explored new territory. We looked at practices we knew from experience were effective, and we placed them on a path of awakening that looks at people in the light of their innate wholeness-- rather than in their brokenness,” they recall. The book and work is actually for anyone who wants to learn more about themselves and enjoy life’s journey! And, thus, was born Heart Reconnection Therapy (HRT) and the extraordinary book The Heart Reconnection Guidebook, by Mary Falkner, MA, and Lee McCormick, with Joan Boyarsenko, Ph.D, WillTaegel, Ph.D and Gary Seidler, including a Practitioner’s Guide by Holly Cook, LPC. The book is available on Amazon and your favorite book stores and you can connect with Lee at www.spiritrecovery.com or www.integrativelifecenter.com.

Enjoy this not-so-ordinary discussion about this not so predictable undertaking! Because we’re living longer there can be as many as four or five generations together in a single family. As exciting as all of this sounds, the reality exists that aging can bring challenges to the family dynamic. What types of things should we contemplate as we think about growing older? What concerns should we have about our parents? What do they expect from us? Where is the give and take? What kinds of situations can arise? Have you ever thought about it? Well there’s a few common ones I’ve encountered professionally worth discussing in today’s Aging GreatFULLy show as I impart some of my thoughts regarding key components of Aging with Aging Parents from a personal and candid point of view. This show is a tiny glimpse into some of my Aging Rebel perspectives that I’m passionate about regarding aging, life, and circumstances that may arise, including important qualities that help beautifully usher the journey into a more fulfilling and rewarding experience for everyone. I also reveal it isn’t always easy, we don’t always have all the answers, but there are some things that should remain constant, regardless!

Neutralizing Difficult People & Regaining Peace to Age GreatFULLy with Sarah Elliston

​Former "difficult person" herself comes front stage to share with all who will listen how to deal with "people like us!" Author of the book, "Lessons from a Difficult Person: How to Deal with People Like Us" shares her infinite knowledge in her mission to help others stand up for themselves and regain peace.The funny thing is that Sarah Elliston never realized she was “a difficult person,” -- someone who harangued people until she got her way, threw snip fits and temper tantrums, talked over her bosses and pointed out what she thought were their misconceptions. In her family, where she felt bullied, the only way she knew how to get someone’s attention and approval was to voice her opinion—and loudly! Without standing her ground, how could she do what she thought was best for herself and everyone else around her. She wasn’t intentionally mean-spirited. She was just trying to do what she thought was RIGHT! Until a kind, but firm, boss woke her up! With great compassion, and strength, her boss pointed out that that her actions had consequences. That in being “difficult,” she was not only disrupting the office camaraderie and production, but impeding her own professional advancement. That’s the beginning of Sarah’s transformation— when she started on the journey to leave behind the difficult person, and become the woman who teaches others how to deal with difficult people. Sarah “Sam” Elliston is now bringing forth her vital manual on how to awaken the challenging personality, and change both the relationship and the environment with her new book Dealing with Difficult People; Lessons Learned from a Difficult Person. Today, Elliston is a highly successful workshop leader and trainer, who offers wisdom learned the hard way—and through rigorous study and certification in many areas of professional training that aid her in her work -- Values Realization, Parent Effectiveness Training and Reality Therapy.

However, studies are showing that trends are returning to multi-generational living, despite our contemporary lifestyles. And technology and design are making it easier for families to maintain their livelihood and still provide loving and nurturing care to all generationsunder one suitably designed roof. And helping with this movement is someone who knows just how it's done both personally and professional!

That’s the premise in Dr. Jacob Liberman’s newest book, Luminous Life: How the Science of Light Unlocks the Art of Living. Integrating 40 years of research, practice and direct experience, this groundbreaking book presents a new science of life. Dr. Liberman’s journey began early in his optometric career, when he experienced a sudden, significant and permanent improvement in his vision during a meditative experience. This seemingly inexplicable event led him to question standard medical beliefs and practices, investigate the therapeutic value of light and color, and wonder if our fundamental ideas about life are flawed. His initial research revealed that most of us are not looking where we think we’re looking. Our mind’s eye is not focuses on the same location as our physical eyes. But when this misaloginment is corrected through simple practices, vision improves and presence expands, impacting many other important aspects of our lives. Liberman will share with Aging GreatFULLy listeners his fascinating journey on how the body is guided by and dependent upon light. How it affects our health and relationships and how we are able to implement simple steps towards luminous living ourselves!

The Formula for Miracles with Brent Michael Phillips

Do you believe in miracles? Have you ever wondered about the legitimacy of instant healings? In his new book, The Formula for Miracles: Where Science Reveals the Secrets of Spirit, best-selling author, Brent Michael Phillips reveals the hidden science that explains phenomena such as miraculous healings, higher consciousness, and profound life transformations. To most people, mystical phenomena such as instant healing, intuition, the Law of Attraction, and experiences of higher consciousness such as seeing energy and auras are either considered total nonsense, or are reserved for only a few special and naturally talented individuals. However, Bruce shares with us the truth is that there is a simple scientific basis underlying energy healing, mind power, and the ascension of consciousness. Quite simply, what we call a miracle is just any phenomena which can’t be explained by our current level of science and technology. Author, healer and MIT-trained engineer, Brent Michael Phillips has dedicated all his scientific training and engineering experience to discovering and demystifying the science behind instant healings, the Law of Attraction, higher consciousness and even Enlightenment. By spending many years studying with the world’s best healers, psychics, gurus, masters, and spiritual teachers, he has slowly reverse engineered and figured out exactly what they are doing. Tune in for our life-changing conversation as Bent shares a simple set of powerful but simple processes that anyone can learn quickly and easily to perform instant healings, subconscious clearing, manifestation, and facilitate profound life transformations, even unlocking the shortcuts to Enlightenment.

Eight-time Culinary Olympic Champion Chef Charles Carroll joins Aging GreatFULLy in this timely show titled “Holiday Feast Hacks, the Secret Recipe and Chef Carroll Wisdom.” My guest today has a unique perspective on success, greatness, and what it takes to create world-class teams. Chef Charles Carroll took his first Culinary Olympics gold medal at age 24 and has participated in eight different Olympics over three decades. As executive chef at one of the highest-rated country clubs in the nation, he manages and mentors a team of seventy-five, in six kitchens and three restaurants, putting out eighty to a hundred banquet functions per week — and maintains an unshakable sense of team morale and family spirit in the process. He travels the country giving inspirational talks to young people on the Ingredients of Greatness. In 2011 Chef Carroll founded Operation HOT (“Honoring Our Troops”), putting on a series of Vegas-style shows and presenting a home-cooked Cajun meal for thousands of U.S. troops in the middle of a war zone in Afghanistan and giving away more than seven tons of gifts. Chef Carroll was personally commended by for his work U.S. Presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, and was invited by President Obama to a White House reception. In 2013 he was awarded the Honorable Order of Saint Martin by the U.S. Army for his work.And in his spare time, he’s written a book — a “culinary parable,” he calls it — with The Go-Giver coauthor John David Mann. How does he do it all? And more importantly, why does he do it?

Loaves of Bread and CREATED PEACE with Host Holley Kelley

Sometimes in life, the path is clear...that is what Aging GreatFULLy host Holley Kelley calls "Loaves of Bread." She shares the journey of how she came to do the work she does and how life often unfolds to reveal its intended path. CREATED PEACE is Holley's unique and novel approach to advance care or final affairs planning. This is what Holley feels is everyone's personal and important area of responsible planning. In this show she gives you a gentle nudge as she guides you through her unique process of planning that has changed people's lives around the globe. Her planning is outlined in her Amazon #1 New Release book, Sunrises and Sunsets: Final Affairs Forged with Flair, Finesse and FUNctionality, a national and international multi-award winning book. Holley also hosts workshops around the nation helping people plan for the end while inspiring their new beginnings. She always says, "You can't choose when, but you can choose how." She makes your planning fun and her approach brings incredible peace of mind to those who embrace and embark on the process. While less than 30 percent are preparing for what 100 percent will face, most people avoid completing a simple Advance Directive form. Holley's goal is to not only raise that number, but to also encourage people to become less frightened of this type of planning and show them that many burdens are lifted once this planning is in place. "People begin to remap their life and live life through their bucket list! It is really a surprising transformation that occurs when one has looked their own death in the eye and planned every detail. They really appreciate living like never before!" says Holley. This is a great show for those not sure about moving forward with planning or wondering what is involved in the planning process by the Sunrises and Sunsets author and Aging GreatFULLy show host herself.

This book presents information, stories, and simple, yet life-changing practices designed to assist you in doing the work you came to earth to do – Waking up into the Awareness that you are the Presence of Love, and living your unique life of meaning, purpose and fulfillment from within that Awakened state. From Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick, Founding Faculty and codirectors of the University of Santa Monica, the Worldwide Center for the Study and Practice of Spiritual Psychology, Remembering the Light Within (Hay House, February 21, 2017) affirms that we all suffer from greater or lesser degrees of “Spiritual amnesia.” We’ve forgotten who we are and why we’re here.

Wouldn’t that be Amazing Grace?Remembering the Light Within is filled with remedies for Spiritual amnesia including Spiritual Wisdom and practices supported by the time tested Principles of Spiritual Psychology. A few of the essential concepts covered in this book include: discovering what it means to enter the Spiritual Context, learning the difference between the ego and the Authentic Self; recognizing the distinction between Goal Line and Soul Line opportunities; accelerating Spiritual Awakening through using the scientific method; reframing unresolved issues as Blessings; communing with the Divine through prayer; and finding Freedom through Compassionate Self-forgiveness.

Timeless Wisdom for Healthy Relationships with Acharya Shunya!

Rico Racosky’s early life was a very active combination of his love of all things aeronautic and his passion for art. So it might not come as a surprise that both of these “visual careers” are still playing out in his life in a major way--in his dual careers as a former fighter-pilot-now-airline-pilot and as an author/publisher of multiple graphically-original books, that quickly and clearly explain life through visuals rather than mere words.​Just 2 Choices was “an accidental discovery.” While working with primarily 4th and 5th graders for nearly 20 years on his days off from flying, Rico found himself frequently saying the phrase that “...there are Just 2 Choices of action. One choice will take you closer to your dreams and goals... the other choice will take you farther away. Which choice of action will you take?” After saying “Just 2 Choices” over and over for all those years to the children, Rico thought the phrase would have great applicability to working with grown-ups. So he literally “wrote the book on choice”—a book that’s entirely dedicated to and pioneers the topic of choice in a visual form.A pioneering breakthrough system that creates a “flip-in-thinking” to reveal the exact choice point that releases the personal power unnoticed in every choice turn your ordinary choices into extraordinary choices using choice mapping!Whether at the controls of a F16 Jet Fighter—or now at the controls of a sophisticated jet airliner, Rico Racosky knows that every flight choice he makes is based on one of two choices. He may make multiple split-second decisions as he evaluates the instruments in front of him that show the aircraft’s immediate performance of speed, altitude, and navigation, yet each choice he makes ultimately comes down to a “yes” or “no” input decision based on JUST TWO CHOICES. From Rico’s point of view, all of life is choice and happens at the speed of choice—a perspective he recently shared at Harvard University as a “Choice Expert” Thought Leader guest speaker to Harvard Business School’s Entrepreneurship Clubs. Now, Rico is bringing his wisdom and perspectives to Aging GreatFULLy and we are all ears and anticipation to learn more! Because when it comes to aging, he is also going to tell us how it's JUST 2 CHOICES! I can't wait! Be sure to tune into this fantastic episode with this powerful guest!

73 Prayers to Transform YOUR Life with Lisa Barnett!

When Lisa Barnett wrote The Infinite Wisdom of the Akashic Records, she knew that she had an instant success on her hands. Rocketing to bestseller, it helped people to understand that there is a universal archive of our infinite soul’s journey through the millennia and the dimensions. Furthermore, it can be accessed to understand and help course-correct in this lifetime. Barnett, the internationally renowned founder of the Akashic Knowing School of Wisdom, has been teaching people how to connect with the Akashic Masters for many years. But she also spent 10 years as a prayer practitioner at the Golden Gate Center for Spiritual Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, guiding people to the right prayers to seek intervention for specific issues in their lives. So, was it any surprise when the Akashic Beings of Light metaphorically tapped Barnett on the shoulder and asked her to bring forth a series of powerful, Source-imbued prayers that help people turn their lives around? Indeed they did! And that’s how From Questioning to Knowing: 73 Prayers to Transform Your Life was born. With a foreword from Jack Canfield, this book provides illumination for those seeking to end pain, suffering, financial strain and the feeling of being trapped in their own lives – and to take a leap forward into a new state of being. Notes Canfield, “It’s no accident, but rather divine timing, that Lisa has written this book now, when so many have unanswered questions. By simply reading a prayer, every page of his book can transform you effortlessly from where you are to where you feel loved and supported.” Here’s how the Akashic Beings of Light expressed it through Barnett: “When your readers chose to say a prayer, they are connecting to us...They will energetically access their soul’s library...receiving guidance from us as the divine messengers. We are here to guide and help humanity remember the truth of their infinite souls. We are here to support you in releasing old beliefs or karma stuck outside of time (from previous lives) blocking your progress or to understand more about your soul purposes and gifts.”Along the way, Barnett addresses: • How to release old karmic patterns and complete soul contracts with these messages of light • The influence ancestral lineage may have on you • The way to unblock chakras using prayer • How these prayers are best used to resolve issues, clear blocks, heal emotional pain and resentments -- and open space for the miraculous to arrive

Breaking Into Brilliance with Lynn Singer!

Another life-changing hour of Aging GreatFULLy with guest Lynn Singer!​It's not a book. It's not an ebook. It's not a picture book. It's OH SO MUCH MORE...something you have never seen before and that will change your life. Breaking Into Brilliance: An Awakening of Creative Consciousness is Lynn Singer's gift to mankind-an astonishing, interactive, animated, emotional, online EXPERIENCE masquerading as a book. Yes, it may open like an online book, but watch as the storytelling unfolds, pictures move, maps unfurl, Lynn's honeyed voice lures you into new depths of yourself and illuminating breakthroughs. There's even an interactive iJournal entry on each page to record your own responses, questions and searching. Why? Because so many of us are miserable or stuck or reacting to life from old wounds. Breaking Into Brilliance is a gentle way to shake you loose. It's a journey to unleash your creative self. Singer's lifework is designed to show you how to change your perspective, mine your innately brilliant soul and burst through to your own reality-creating powers. Partly autobiographical, partly metaphysical, partly meditative and partly inspirational, Breaking Into Brilliance uses storytelling, poetry, photography, meditation and deep questioning to disrupt your status quo, creating more meaningful connections with your consciousness. And propel you forward and upward. It's a true Tour de Force. Singer--an actress, renowned voiceover professional and voice coach--calls on her gifts to release people from the bondage of their own making. But this is no empty journey for her. You can hear the pain, sorrow and loss that she endured before her own awakening. It is the discovery of her own creative genius and power that inspired her to create Breaking Into Brilliance as a new form of edu-entertainment, a way to show people the path while engaging all of their senses. Her virtuoso effort combats the hopelessness and resignation so many feel today. "We know that everyone is capable of brilliance. However, learning to live in our brilliance is quite another matter, "says Lynn. "Many of us meditate, have sought counseling, and are careful about what we eat and how we how we take care of our bodies. And yet, we are still yearning. We have not anchored our relation to spirit, nor accepted that we are creating the world around us. This requires a release of old beliefs and ideas and a mindful activation of our creative powers." Breaking into Brilliance uses storytelling, key dreams, art and healing exercises to help examine limiting thought patterns and discover how the mind can heal the body (and vice versa).
