Episode 037: On Learning to Unlearn with Hanz Kurdi

February 14, 2017
Join me for this exciting episode with my first male guest on the Being Inspired show—Hanz Kurdi! In this episode, we explore how we need to learn to unlearn in order to clear away the illusions.
As Marianne Williamson says, "Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment—or unlearning—of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts." Hanz "The Spiritual Programmer" and I dive into this concept and look at the importance of learning to unlearn, why obstacles are there to begin with, and how we can get back to our original, authentic, and innate self—the blank canvas, if you will.
There are so many gems of wisdom, quotables, and takeaways in this inspiring conversation. Please forgive some of the echo and feedback—the truth was simply resonating too loudly!!
Tune in and be inspired that “shift happens.”
Hanz founded The Elevate Institute, home of the Human Acceleration Program, to deeply engage everyone with all aspects of their life and help promote their optimal selves as defined by them. He is a forever student of human development and behavioral psychology. As an Elevation Coach for over 10 years, he helped employees develop realistic goals and plans focused on their overall wellbeing.

Gigi is one of my favorite Beings and a gift to the world.

She is deeply connected to the 2 polarities within us that are calling for balance: Stillness/Consciousness/Masculine and Energy/Love/Feminine. The work therefore centers on the Stillness practices from the East mixed with our beautiful and sacred earth, heart-based intuitive knowing of indigenous ancestors. Her upcoming book, “The Hamster Wheel Before Enlightenment”, explores the many experiences we embark on to the road to enlightenment and how they are important yet not complete, always calling us back to the foundational inner Stillness of Source.

Episode 029: On Embracing Uncertainty

November 15, 2016

With so much shifting and so many unknowns surrounding us, I want to drop in and celebrate and explore the importance of “not knowing,” of uncertainty. It is from this space that transformation occurs. Not when we “have all the answers” or “know what’s coming.” We are being asked collectively to deepen into trust and faith (which is the opposite of certainty). The only way we can do that is by choosing love over fear, again and again and again. Will you join me?
