- The Secret of Life: We are in the world to accomplish a mission: to have an impact on others. Every single human being is in a position to help impact somebody else. Sometimes we get so caught up in our personal needs that we forget.
- We ned to learn how to come together: to eat together, to walk together, to be together, to care for one another.
- How do we go beyond divisiveness?
For more information: African Leadership Group
Join host Laurie Seymour as she speaks to what is needed in these times of separation, judgment and rage. It’s not effective to “simply turn off the news, or affirm the light. And fighting back leaves your insides in knots.”
As she says, ” Outrage voiced from the fullness of who you are will change the world. And this is what is needed now.”
Laurie shares what she discovered from the depths of her own despair that opened space in the darkest places.
Inner voices rooted in judgment are not trust-worthy. They are the voices of self-doubt. How do you go from self-doubt to self-trust? That’s today’s episode, part 3 of The Compass Within series.
Join Laurie for Part two of The Compass Within series, as she shows you how becoming curious about yourself activates the relationship with your inner knowing. Find true insight that will provide direction and guide your next steps. Listen in as she explores:
– how to go beyond self-doubt
– what to do when you are wondering what’s next
– moving from judgement to truth
– curiosity in action
– What is the Compass Within? And why is it so important to the quality and direction of your life?
– What is meant by “inner knowing”?
– What gets in the way of using the compass within for making decisions and course-correcting?
– How to pay attention to what your body knows is true.
Founder of the nonprofit Peaceful Mind, Peaceful Life, Barb shares how you can do this, too.
Laurie explores the human experience of vulnerability, first bringing to light 4 myths that keep you from a deeper experience of self-realization. Vulnerability is the Universe’s invitation to you to take your next step.
Laurie says: “It’s not the state of vulnerability that feels so scary. It’s your resistance to it and fear of it that create the disharmony.”
Vulnerability usually accompanies change. Change opens you to what is new, the next destination on your journey.
Join host Laurie Seymour as she takes you on this journey of one woman’s advocacy and passion for the good of all of us. “If it’s hard, that’s different than it it’s impossible.”
Join Laurie Seymour, Gitanjali Hemp and Aparna Sain, from the Wisdom Talk collective, as they dive deep into the theme of speaking your truth. It is not always easy to do. It’s even harder to do it with love. Yet it means the difference between closing down in silence and claiming the truth of your own voice.
– the necessity of inner and outer alignment
– the power of your voice
– the fluidity of truth
– how to stand in the field of love
– how we are being asked to stand up for what is true
Join host Laurie Seymour as she opens the door to the freedom that lives beyond the stories you tell yourself.
Self-talk, over time, solidifies into stories. The stories you tell yourself about who you are become who you are. The stories you tell yourself about life, become your life.
Perhaps the most damaging story that you can tell yourself is that freedom is not possible.
Confidence comes in the connection with your unshakable inner core.
The act of carrying and giving birth to a child mirrors the process of giving birth to something new—be it a project, product, company or something else entirely. How do you know when you need to hold on, containing the energy so that it has time to gestate? Are you willing and ready to let it go into the world and fly when it is ready?
The Wisdom Talk Radio hosts pool their collective wisdom to explore the art of receiving and letting go.
Have you ever dreamed of making a pilgrimage on a sacred path, perhaps the famous Camino de Santiago? Join host Laurie Seymour as she delves into the Mysteries of spiral path pilgrimages, ley lines and serpentine spiral energy paths with Sarah Hoskin Clymer. Sarah walked the Camino when she turned 50.
Sarah Hoskin Clymer is a pilgrim. She loves to walk. She walks almost daily, on local hiking trails in Colorado, on the ancient pilgrimage paths along the “dragon” ley lines of the Earth especially in Spain, England, and Cornwall, and on sacred spiral paths such as labyrinths. She walks to come home to herself, and the truth of who she truly is, to connect with the Earth and Spirit, and to live her life aligned with her soul’s path. Her intention is always to walk In Love, As Love, For Love.
Join Laurie Seymour as she talks about the reliable resource—your inner compass— that is alive within you and can bring new simplicity and clarity to making decisions and taking action with confidence.
She asks: What if you learned to trust your inner voice, the unique-to-you guidance that your soul wants to share with you?
What if you could tell when an idea was coming from this deeper dimension within you? Would that be worthy of your attention?
Discernment brings deep knowingness to living a life of purpose and inner connection. Join hosts Laurie Seymour, Aparna Sain, Marianne McGuire, Sabrina Fritts and Gitanjali Hemp as they explore the potent value of learning discernment.
Develop the critical ability to discern the truth of another’s words, to know when inner guidance comes from the truest part of yourself, to feel the difference between judgment and discernment and to choose well.

Step off the Cliff So You Can Fly! Conversation with Gail Larsen on the Power of Speaking What’s True
This is a treat! Join Laurie for this remarkable conversation with Gail Larsen, founder of Real Speaking© and the award-winning author of Transformational Speaking: If You Want to Change the World, Tell a Better Story.
Gail’s message is clear: “Each of us have gifts and talents that are nowhere else duplicated. If we don’t express our medicine, it is lost to the world for all time. The world needs us.”
She goes on to say that when we connect with our “original medicine”, all of the elements that are part of us start flying into formation. For those of us who have walked along multiple paths most of our lives, this brings home the truth that all roads can lead home. That each carries an integral thread that becomes woven into our tapestry. As Gail says, “something new always comes when you are in the home zone.”
Listen in and discover what Gail means by your “Holy Fool Act,” how retirement is an out-dated model and how aging can look in our culture.
Gail offers Transformational Speaking to a global audience through both her Online Academy and monthly live immersions in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Even if you can’t make it to be with her in Santa Fe, her Online Academy will help you “change the world by telling a better story”. Check it out.

What do you do with your expectation that today will be like yesterday? What do you do when the world stops being familiar?
Laurie talks about what to do with the empty space when big kinds of change happen in your life. The energy of change has to be integrated first in your body. Then comes understanding.

Honoring mind-body-spirit is no buzzword for Felina Danalis. For her, it’s nothing less than her life’s work.

This was her breaking-open moment. Since then, cultivating her own spiritual fitness and helping others to do the same has been her passion, her calling and her business.

Many of us are looking to how we can keep up with the outer changes in the world. However, my focus today is on inner change, inner transformation. Because it all starts from within.
How do you take a quantum leap into your future?
Everything — your potential, your guidance system, your cellular memory — is in place within your physical body. It simply needs to be awakened so that you can experience a deeper sense of clarity and inner direction. As you develop the practice of inner observing and inner quiet, a whole universe of memory and remembrance can emerge, catalyzed by the simple choice to interrupt your racing thoughts. The act of such remembering becomes a sacred wisdom journey.
