Ft. Doug Wilson
Doug was what most people in the modern day world would have viewed as successful. He had moved to London for work, where he was working in a great corporate job, making great money, loved to party and seemed to be living “the life”.
It wasn’t until at the age of 31, Doug’s life changed as he knew it. Doug was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumour. After undergoing a 14-hour operation, and suffering extensive cranial nerve damage, he battled surgically induced meningitis, had to learn to walk again and still today faces life-long complications, including single-sided deafness, permanent balance issues and facial paralysis.
In this episode, Doug takes us on his journey, on how in the middle of his madness, he found his way back to himself through yoga and meditation. Doug shows us how the universe is always talking to us, and it will either tickle you with a feather, or slap you in the face depending on how closely you are listening.
This is an inspiring story where Doug shows us how he turned what seemed like a road to destruction, into the path of overcoming addiction, healing trauma and finding the way back to the truth of who he is. If you have ever had the feeling that there must be more to your existence, then this a must listen!

Ft. Crystallin Dillon

This is an extremely frustrating reality for many, and is often what causes havoc in relationships both personally and professionally. In this episode, Crystallin is unpacking the importance of understanding how to communicate with impact, so that your messages, and responses are deeply understood by yourself and the receiver.

Ft. Jamie Wheal
**Special White Rabbit Edition**
Our White Rabbit Editions are footage and recordings of conversations not originally intended for the podcast, but worth sharing!
In this White Rabbit edition, listen in as Jamie Wheal - Executive Director of the Flow Genome Project (FGP) provides solid sounding points for emotional, spiritual and tactical actions as the world as we now it changes at lightning speed.
In the words of Jamie Wheal “It’s lively times and we hope everyone is keeping heads up and hearts open”.
As our newsreels and newsfeeds tell the tales of empty grocery stores, social distancing memes, borders closing and hygiene tips. This repurposed recording gifted to us by the FGP team offer us a larger frame of how to remain in a high performing state during VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) times, the message is one that shares an anti-fragile secret to surviving and thriving in challenging conditions.
As the world got crazier people began to reach out to the FGP team for recommendations on the practical and tactical of surviving and thriving. They then hosted a Zoom call with their community that went into some depth on what they have learned guiding expeditions in remote corners of Nepal and Tibet, leading off-grid base camps for months at a time in the forest (no electricity or refrigeration), tracking the emergency responsiveness of the Burning Man community, and being privy to a bunch of high level off-line dialogues with their three letter agency, DC, WHO, SOCOM, existential risk friends.
If you’re looking to distill the complex information out there right now this recording will raise your awareness (without the panic) and can provide you with the means to Embrace the Suck, Take the Hit as a Gift. Savor and Save the World and Above All, Be Kind.
