Ep. 101 - Time to Come Alive: “What Makes Me Come Alive?” with Valerie Hope

Ep. 101 - Time to Come Alive: “What Makes Me Come Alive?” with Valerie Hope

Howard Thurman: "Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs are more people who have come alive." For nearly two years, I took what started as an opportunity to build my brand as a leadership coach and a speaker, and tapped into an amazing community to learn and grow with. The Time to Come Alive podcast has featured more than 80 guests and 101 episodes. From the start, I was the one asking the questions, digging into what inspires and makes people spark into action. As I close this chapter, the tables are turned, and former guest, filmmaker, and executive coach, Ingrid Gavshon, interviews me to share what brings me to life. Highlights: • How I’m learning to release big emotions • Blooming where you’re planted and making the most out of life • The power of a teacher to bring out the best in his students • Listening to others even while talking politics Connect with Valerie Hope (https://www.linkedin.com/in/valeriehope/) #TimeToComeAlive #ConnectToJoy #Leadership #Connection #Conscious #Podcast #Aliveness Subscribe to my YouTube channel and access new and past episodes!

Ep. 96 - Time to Come Alive: “How am I Eating?” with Momo Nishimura, Zen eating expert

Thich Nhat Hanh: “In this food, I see clearly the presence of the entire universe supporting my existence.” How do we develop such deep intimacy with our bodies that we know when the body is ready to eat? According to Momo Nishimura, an expert in Zen eating, she notices when the body salivates as the signal that it’s ready. She shares her experiences from childhood, international travel, and the impact on her own eating habits. Highlights: • Releasing expectation increases the benefit • You are how you eat • What is the source of happiness [Book Momo] Online session for Individuals / corporates / conference or web seminar https://momo-n.com/ [Follow Momo on social media] -Instagram@zeneatingmomo - https://www.instagram.com/zeneatingmomo/ -FB@zeneatingmomo - https://www.facebook.com/zeneatingmomo/ [Audio Guide] -InsightTimer @Momo.zeneating - https://insighttimer.com/zeneatingmomo -Apple podcasts @Momo.zeneating - https://podcasts.apple.com/jp/podcast/momo-zeneating/id1527320610?l=en -Spotify @Momo.zeneating - https://open.spotify.com/show/7GyJZhdXVwCNWDwr6JiLQc?si=Ty2TqH4WQ_GLzYKutn6PVg #TimeToComeAlive #ConnectToJoy #Mindfulness #Nutrition #Food #Zen Subscribe to my YouTube channel and access new and past episodes!
