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!

Featuring: Justen lee
Justen Lee is a 25-year-old with a bit of a tricky to define title. He works in Austin Texas as an addiction recovery coach, life coach, movement coach, health and wellness guide with a background in culinary arts. Some of his other passions include rock climbing, surfing, martial arts and philosophy. But we’re not here to talk about his passions, we’re here to hear about his life changing experience that saw him go from addict to living on purpose.
In this episode Justen shares his story of remarkable transformation, from feeling like he was pretty sure he was going to die, to buying a one way ticket to the Bahamas in the a last ditch effort to see whether extracts of the African root medicine Ibogo, (the purified alkaloid ibogaine) could help him turn things around. Follow Justen through his experience of having his mind wiped clean and a how he used the post treatment effects of greater neuroplasticity to write a new script for all areas of his life.
Justen shares wise tips of how we can all escape the “boxed in” life and fill the emptiness that led him to his addictions.
