Bioneers: Revolution From the Heart of Nature | Bioneers Radio Series
In Western civilization, human beings are considered the exceptional species and uniquely intelligent. Yet science is consistently revealing our intimate biological kinship with all species, especially the primates with whom we share 99% of our DNA. The breakthrough primatologist researchers Roger and Deborah Fouts take us on their amazing journey with chimpanzees that shows that, not only are people animals, but animals seem to be people too. Featuring Roger and Deborah Fouts co-founded and directed the Chimpanzee and Human Communication Institute (CHCI) at Central Washington University. CHCI facilitated research on primate communication, advocated for chimpanzee conservation, and served as a sanctuary for chimpanzees from 1993-2013.

Forgoing motherhood has traditionally marked a woman as “other.” With no official place setting for her in our society, she has hovered on the sidelines: the quirky girl, the neurotic career obsessive, the “eccentric” aunt. Instead of continuing to paint women without kids as sad, self-obsessed, or somehow dysfunctional, what if instead we saw them as boldly forging a first-in-a-civilization vision for a fully autonomous womankind? Or as journalist and thought leader Ruby Warrington asks, “What if being a woman without kids was in fact its own kind of legacy?” In this episode, Adama dives deep with Ruby to discuss a taboo yet important topic, plus her upcoming book, Women Without Kids: The Revolutionary Rise of an Unsung Sisterhood. Ruby Warrington is creator of the term Sober Curious. Author of the 2018 book and million download podcast of the same title, her work has spearheaded a global movement to reevaluate our relationship to alcohol. Other works include Material Girl, Mystical World (2017), The Numinous Astro Deck (2019), and The Sober Curious Reset (2020). With 20+ years' experience as a lifestyle journalist and editor, Ruby is known as an astute culture commentator and true thought leader. She is also the founder of self-publishing imprint Numinous Books. Her new book, Women Without Kids, will be published with Sounds True in early 2023.

Do you find yourself filling up your “free” hours with mundane tasks, soaking up podcasts to improve yourself, and rushing around, never getting it all done? For many women, it's the same kind of story—we hustle to overachieve at work and at home, all in the hopes that we can “crush it” until we finally feel fulfilled. Vanessa Loder invites you to consider this question: “What if the point isn't to crush it in life, but to savor it?” With The Soul Solution: A Guide for Brilliant, Overwhelmed Women to Quiet the Noise, Find Their Superpower, and (Finally) Feel Satisfied (Sounds True, 2022) , this sought-after women's leadership expert shares a powerful and practical guide to help women who feel overwhelmed and exhausted to recover our true selves—and our joy in living.

Cracking Open with Molly Carroll
Have you ever had a conversation with someone you just met, where time seems to come to a standstill and it feels like you have known this person for years? This is exactly what it felt like when I interviewed Tami Simon. Tami is the Founder and CEO of Sounds True, a wildly successful multimedia publishing company that she launched more than three decades ago with a dream and one clear mission – to disseminate spiritual wisdom. Now one of the top publishing companies for many of the leading teachers and visionaries of our time, Tami and her team of more than 110 employees are accomplishing their mission to wake up the world. Sounds True now has the world's largest living library of transformational teachings that support and accelerate spiritual awakening and personal transformation. Tami is not only creating shifts in consciousness through her life's work, however. She actually embodies what it means to live a life of awakening and transformation in her own personal journey which she intimately shares with us in this week's podcast. In fact, Tami admitted to me that this was one of the most intimate interviews she has ever given. Not only do we talk about the "why" behind her creation of Sounds True, but we also take a deep dive into her marriage, and discuss one of her deepest desires – to have soul freedom and help others discover their pure potential.This interview also held deep personal meaning for me. When my dad died in 2011, and again with my mom's death in 2019, there were days I had to drag myself out of bed. Yet even in those darkest of times, I was intuitively drawn to Sounds True's website time and time again. I always felt comforted as I clicked on their website, looking for support and solace in my grief.I have continued to turn to Sounds True when I find myself asking the bigger questions about my existence in this life, or even simply searching for tools to help my clients in the Cracking Open Coaching Program.Sounds True not only provides free resources, online courses, in-depth programs, and events, but it is also the home of many best-selling and beloved authors such as Pema Chödrön, Danielle LaPorte, Marianne Williamson, and Eckhart Tolle. Their newest endeavor is the recent launch of Sounds True One – an online membership that provides access to life-changing teachings and resources to support a soul-filled life.I have an immense amount of gratitude for this incredible library of spiritual resources that Tami Simon has helped bring into the world, and it is an absolute honor to share her story and life's journey with you all today. May her words, stories, and wisdom launch you into 2023 with an open heart, the courage to make any changes you may need or desire, and the deep knowing that you are never alone.Love,MollyCheck out the amazing library of resources at Sounds True Explore Sounds True One Follow Sounds True on InstagramConnect with Tami on LinkedInLearn more about Molly Carroll hereGet your free Body Emotion MapFind me on Social:InstagramFacebook
Many years ago Sandra Ingerman was working with a producer Mitchell Clute at Sounds True to create a Year of Ceremony program. During one of their conversations, Mitchell said the phrase “energetic signature”. For Sandra this phrase started an entire way of thinking about what energy we leave in the web of life. Or what Renee would say what footprint are we leaving on the Earth.Renee Baribeau and Sandra's combined conversation created true alchemy as they talk about the different permutations of how we express our energetic signature and how important it is for all of life.

For those who know Mark Nepo's work he needs no introduction. For those who are not yet familiar with his work, Mark Nepo has been called “one of the finest spiritual guides of our time,” “a consummate storyteller,” and “an eloquent spiritual teacher.” A bestselling author, he has published twenty-three books and recorded sixteen audio projects. His books have been translated into more than twenty languages. Recent work includes Surviving Storms (St. Martin's Essentials, 2020) and Drinking from the River of Light, a Nautilus Award Winner (Sounds True, 2019). I have been following Mark's work for over 30 years. Yet, I first connected with him when my music was used on his two audio programs for Sounds True, Reduced To Joy, and Inside The Miracle. Since then I have had the honor and privilege of being part of a number of his mentoring circles for authentic living. Mark has a unique capacity to bring the inevitable complexities, challenges and inherent paradoxes of life into an intimate, clear and accessible focus through the power of story, metaphor and his timeless poetry. In this episode, we dive into his most recent book, "Surviving Storms: Finding the Strength to Meet Adversity". It's as all of his books a powerful, deeply intimate read about becoming truly ourselves in times of adversity, challenges and suffering. Today, more than ever, Mark's timeless wisdom is a welcome healing balm and lantern to light our way through the dark.

San Francisco Zen Center Dharma Talks
01/07/2023, Caverly Morgan, dharma talk at City Center. This dharma talk is based off Caverly's new book, The Heart of Who We Are: Realizing Freedom Together, published by Sounds True. Have you ever found yourself identified with a self who is on a mission to annihilate the self? Have you found yourself believing you have to get rid of in order to experience truth? Believing that the conditioned mind can take charge and try to control and omit thoughts, experiences, people is a distortion of a negating, or Neti Neti, approach. And we do it in the name of spiritual practice. In this talk we explore this topic conceptually as well as through our own direct experience.
Your Weekly Dose of Higher Consciousness
This week I am happily sharing a FREE tool for transformation. This month's FREE tool is from Caroline Myss, a renowned medical intuitive and bestselling author, speaker, teacher, and good chum of Oprah Winfrey. Caroline has a Free 3-part Video Series, that was produced by Sounds True called The Science of Medical Intuition- Self-Diagnosis and Healing with your body's energy systems which you can access at any time at TheMindBodySpiritNetwork.com/cm3So I'd like to start with defining medical intuition…What is it?According to Wikipedia…A medical intuitive is an alternative medicine practitioner who claims to be able to use their intuitive abilities to find the cause of a physical or emotional condition through insight rather than modern medicine. Other terms for such a person include medical clairvoyant or medical psychic.I then discuss the significance of Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), one of the most renowned and significant medical intuitive throughout recent history.I introduce you to Caroline Myss:More than 25 years ago, a Harvard-trained neurosurgeon and researcher named Dr. Norman Shealy was introduced to a young woman with a special gift: she could “see” illness in other people with only her intuition to guide her. After extensive testing, Dr. Shealy concluded that her ability to diagnose disease—even from remote distances—was 93% accurate. Today that medical intuitive, Caroline Myss, is a legend in the field of intuition and energy healing and has five New York Times bestsellers to her credit. Together, Dr. Norman Shealy and Caroline Myss, have created a groundbreaking self-care curriculum: The Science of Medical Intuition.Along with Sounds True, They created an introduction to their online course that I am introducing you to today, which is a Free 3-part Video Series that was produced by Sounds True called The Science of Medical Intuition- Self-Diagnosis and Healing with your body's energy systemsJoin Caroline Myss for FREE Video Series Learn and apply medical intuition and energy healing from renowned medical intuitive Caroline MyssDisclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.

“There were so many ways that this little being helped to bring us closer together, to teach us about love, to teach us about unconditional love.” This episode is sponsored in part by Doobet.com and Maddie's Fund. In this episode, Stacy chats with Cheryl Richardson, the author of several books and audio programs, including her recent audiobook How to Survive the Loss of a Pet, which helps listeners navigate the journey of grief, acceptance, and renewal after a pet passes. In her conversation with Stacy, Cheryl discusses the strong bond that we have with our pets and how they can play such major roles in our lives. She describes how her late cat, Poupon, taught her about love and how, towards the end of his life, the most profound act of love was to let him go as gently as possible. Cheryl discusses her book “How to Survive the Loss of a Pet”, and talks about how her role is that of a grief coach. She emphasizes the importance of giving yourself space to grieve and explains how each person handles grief differently. She believes it's critical to respect and honor your own unique way of grieving. Most importantly, Cheryl wants listeners to know that if you've lost a pet and are grieving: you are not alone and will get through this. To learn more about Cheryl and her work, visit her website.

Acharya Shunya is a truth-teller who facilitates authenticity, self-remembrance, and divine feminine pathways to awakening. After centuries of living in patriarchal societies, many women don't realize how powerful they are—or how much they've been enculturated to keep their true nature hidden. In Roar Like a Goddess, trailblazing Vedic spiritual teacher Acharya Shunya empowers women everywhere to step into their divine immensity and lead powerful, abundant, and wise lives through her revolutionary revisioning of ancient India's primary goddess archetypes: The Goddess Durga—A role model who vanquishes internalized misogyny and institutionalized patriarchy, Durga teaches you how to take back your full feminine power. The Goddess Lakshmi—Known for her beauty and generous spirit, Lakshmi guides you to cultivate unshakable inner contentment and soul-aligned abundance. The Goddess Saraswati—The ultimate teacher of our most profound journey to Self, Saraswati illuminates the gifts of wisdom, peace, and inner freedom. Sharing classic myths, original insights, and empowering practices, Shunya offers a profound process for awakening the many faces of the goddess within. Episode Highlights: * Why Women's Anger is Sacred and why we must learn to express it * How the Goddesses can serve as inspiration for modern feminism * One of the most fundamental aspects of self-empowerment is cultivating a healthy sense of self-worth. * How the goddesses teach us to love ourselves * Acharya's journey as a spiritual teacher who became the head of a 2,000-year-old lineage. * How she walks the line of being bold in her assertions, as well as inclusive in her teachings * Why we should encourage the carnal pursuit of pleasure * Similar to the pursuit of sex, we — particularly as women — are taught that the goal of material wealth is “non-spiritual,” but this is not true * Why women's power is not always available uniformly, and how can it be accessed from within. The first female lineage-holder of her distinguished Vedic tradition, Acharya Shunya is an internationally renowned scholar, teacher, author, speaker, and scholar of nondual wisdom (Advaita) from India and a classically-trained master of Yoga and Ayurveda. She is the Founder of The Awakened Self Foundation and the nonprofit Vedika Global, Inc., platforms headquartered in Northern California that empower, educate, and inspire a global community of students through online courses, workshops, and retreats. These conversations are furthered by Shunya's top-rated podcast, “Shadow To Self.” An award-winning author of international repute, Shunya's most recent book, Roar Like a Goddess: Every Woman's Guide to Becoming Unapologetically Powerful, Prosperous, and Peaceful, was published by Sounds True in September 2022 and is now available worldwide.
What does it mean to be in touch with the heart of who we are? That question is at the core of The Heart of Who We Are. Written by Caverly Morgan, a meditation teacher, author, speaker, and nonprofit founder, the book offers a pathway to contemplate such topics as our interconnectedness, our beingness, and the things that get in the way of us feeling whole and complete. This week we look at how awareness practices and contemplative technologies can transform our understanding of ourselves and the world. Guest Bio Caverly Morgan is a meditation teacher, author, speaker, and nonprofit founder. She is the founder and Lead Contemplative of Peace in Schools—a nonprofit which created the nation's first for-credit mindfulness class in public high schools.

I reached out to Sarah a couple months ago, soon after the birth of our child looking for some help and support. I found myself in a very closed and contracted place and after googling 'heart opening' I found her podcast on Sounds True, listened, and immediately downloaded her book, Heart Minded, How to Hold Yourself and Others in Love. I suppose it was the right time and the book was exactly what I needed. After listening through twice back to back, I emailed Sarah and was grateful to hear back. It was a couple months since that email, many lessons and the result ended up being more of a conversation about her experience and process, my own and a sharing and exploration of nurturing and keeping an open heart in the midst of both calm and turbulent waters. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/mindufulenduranceprogram/support
In this episode, Deb discussed how she was inspired after hearing Stephen Porges, Ph.D. speak about his polyvagal theory, and found ways to use this theory in helping clients to heal. She explained that there are three states of the autonomic nervous system, which are the ventral (feeling regulated, safe, connected), sympathetic (fight or flight, activated), and dorsal (collapse, shut down, disconnected) and that there are cues that trigger these states. We discussed how emotions are the labels that we attach to these states, although the same states may have different labels (anxiety vs. excitement). She pointed out that our nervous system takes in information from three pathways, which are embodied (interoceptive or internal sensations), environmental (external cues), and between nervous systems (how our nervous system is reacting to another's nervous system). She discussed how the polyvagal theory allows therapists to help clients identify the cues that trigger these states, understand these states, and they also inform the therapist as they help coregulate the client through the therapist being in a ventral state. The polyvagal theory, she pointed out, sees these states in a hierarchy, where when the sympathetic is overwhelmed, then the person moves into the dorsal state of collapse or dissociation, and to move from the dorsal state, one must go back through the sympathetic, fight or flight, state to return to a ventral state. Deb discussed how we learn to move through this system through coregulation and we discuss how this plays out with parents and children and in couple relationships. She explained that survivors of Complex PTSD, who grew up in an unsafe and/or unpredictable environment, weren't able to get that experience of coregulation to internalize, so they had to regulate themselves, and these solutions may have become maladaptive. This also creates difficulty for the client because their experience is that people are dangerous, so it is dangerous to be in the presence of another, making coregulation very difficult. Part of the therapist's work with trauma survivors is to be able to help coregulate them in a ventral state, while they also access those other states while revisiting the trauma, experiencing the coregulation in the present while engaging with the experience of the past. She discussed techniques she uses with clients such as breathing techniques, connecting to memories of times in ventral state, using objects that cue a time when in a ventral state, and a discernment question where the person is able to reflect on whether the current activation is needed for the current situation, and notice, name, and then turn towards the nervous system experience. Deb Dana, LCSW is a clinician, consultant and author specializing in complex trauma. Her work is focused on using the lens of Polyvagal Theory to understand and resolve the impact of trauma, and creating ways of working that honor the role of the autonomic nervous system. She is a founding member of the Polyvagal Institute, consultant to Khiron Clinics, and advisor to Unyte. Deb is the developer of the signature Rhythm of Regulation Clinical Training Series and is well known for translating Polyvagal Theory into a language and application that is both understandable and accessible for clinicians and curious people alike. Deb's clinical work published with W.W. Norton includes The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy: Engaging the Rhythm of Regulation, Polyvagal Exercises for Safety and Connection: 50 Client Centered Practices, the Polyvagal Flip Chart, and the Polyvagal Card Deck. She partners with Sounds True to bring her polyvagal perspective to a general audience through the audio program Befriending Your Nervous System: Looking Through the Lens of Polyvagal Theory and her print book Anchored: How to Befriend Your Nervous System Using Polyvagal Theory.

Sounds True: Insights at the Edge
In 2018, Mary Firestone survived the tragic Montecito mudslide caused by 200 million gallons of rainfall in 15 minutes, washing away her home and more than a hundred others. In the wake of this experience, Mary began a healing journey that led to the creation of her new book, Trusting the Dawn: Choosing Freedom and Joy After Trauma. In this podcast, Sounds True's founder, Tami Simon, speaks with Mary about her personal story and the lessons she offers in the book, including how we share the narratives of our past traumas; the difference between being victimized and remaining in victimhood; reframing our experiences versus spiritual bypassing; the importance of integration for the healing of trauma; MDMA, ketamine, and holotropic breathwork therapies; the “personal I” and the “depersonalized I”; initiation experiences; overcoming fear around speaking your truth; hypnosis and past-life regression as a pathway to wholeness; meditation, EMDR, flower essences, and other widely accessible alternative healing modalities; the power of choice; and more.
Meet Danielle LaPorte Danielle LaPorte is a member of Oprah's SuperSoul 100, a group who, in Oprah Winfrey's words, "is uniquely connecting the world together with a spiritual energy that matters." The former director of a future studies think tank in Washington, DC, where she managed a team creating global scenarios, she now speaks about the intelligence of the heart. Her most recent book, How To Be Loving: When Your Heart Is Breaking Open and Our World Is Waking Up, is also an Audiobook + eBook with a companion deck and journal––to be released in October 2022. Danielle is also the author of The Fire Starter Sessions, The Desire Map, and White Hot Truth, and producer of dozens of meditation kits and online programs for spiritual support. Danielle is the creator of the Heart Centered Membership and the Heart Centered Leaders Program, with 400+ leaders in 30 countries hosting conversation circles, retreats, and workshops in all kinds of communities and businesses. Her podcast, With Love, Danielle, often ranks in iTunes' top 10 for wellness. Most of her offerings—from the Heart Centered Membership to her online classes—are on a pay-what-you-choose basis. Named one of the Top 100 Websites for Women by Forbes, millions of people a month visit DanielleLaPorte.com. Marianne Williamson refers to Danielle "as a bright light." V (formerly known as Eve Ensler) calls her "a force field of energy, wonder, humor, and love." Her charities of choice are Ally Global Foundation, helping survivors of human trafficking to rebuild their lives (@allyglobal), Trees Sisters'Sisters' reforestation projects (@treesisters_official), and VDay, a movement to end violence against women and girls (vdayorg). Danielle LaPorte lives in Vancouver, BC. You can find her on most places on social media @daniellelaporte. This book is so incredibly wise, and you'll want to listen more than once. We discussed Danielle's newest book, How To Be Loving, published by Sounds True, in great depth especially focusing on the tricky parts we often don't accept, allow or embrace. Put on your seatbelt and get ready for a powerful journey within… Loving The Ego The old way of viewing the ego is to see it as something to banish, get rid of, override or overcome. I loved Danielle LaPorte's approach and her focus on loving it all, including your ego. Yes, your ego needs and deserves love too. As she said, "I created it. And as the mother of it all, I am responsible for loving and caring for every aspect of myself." Danielle does this by telling her ego that she's not leaving or abandoning this part of herself, and as she said, ''I got you.'' This means having a conversation with ourselves that is loving, compassionate, and unconditional. This means loving your insecurities and anything you wish you could change. Learn to love it as it is. Accept it as it is. Thank this part of you, as it brings the opportunity to love yourself even more. Woah, that's a big reframe if I've ever seen one. Try it, and let me know what you think and feel. What is it like to truly call in love for every single aspect of yourself? Self-Improvement Gone Bad The issue for many of us steeped in the self-improvement world is the incessant desire to constantly evolve, awaken and become enlightened. There's nothing wrong with wanting to grow, but this non-stop desire can actually be the ego, or the spiritual ego, incognito. Underneath the striving is this belief that you need to do these things to be worthy in God's eyes. Danielle LaPorte explains a better and more loving way to see this. You were born whole. This is liberating because it means you don't have to push, strive and work hard for worthiness. You are already worthy because you were born. In reality, what we're also talking about is the energy from which you're coming. It's more energizing to come from a celebratory focus versus striving. But in the end, self-compassion is the whole point. Be compassionate to everyone, including yourself. You can do this by identifying with your light and heart. Over and over again. Power Redefined I love how Danielle La Porte talks about and explains receptivity. In essence, the way that we receive the cues from the Universal mind is through receptivity. The way to being receptive is through stillness and calming down your nervous system, mind, and overall being. Silence and stillness become your best allies as they help you to slow down and tap into the universal intelligence waiting for you to pay attention. As you connect to your divine downloads, you tap into a power that is beyond your mind, ego, and limited understanding. This is power redefined and it starts with being receptive. As Danielle said, "the light WANTS to come in." We then need to learn to pause, be our own guru, and allow for the light to come in. The Secret To It All The most important ingredient not to be overlooked is the power of forgiveness. Here are a few powerful questions to ponder as they relate to forgiveness: Who can you forgive today? What would it look like to forgive them? How would it feel in your body, mind, and soul to fully forgive them? Grab your journal and pen and start tuning in and writing. There's euphoria waiting for you from forgiveness. Final Thoughts Danielle LaPorte explains how to be loving is more than just a concept, it begins by confronting the tricky parts like loving the ego.

On my journey through life, I've always felt the pull of two worlds. On one hand, the life of technical, for the operational. On the other, the life of a seeker, with the feeling of a deep connection to something bigger than myself. These two worlds fueled a question how can we be successful at work and also be a good person? With my exploration of this question, I have strived to change work, (and the world) from the inside out.
