On Singing Each Other Awake with East Forest

Ep. 97

Today, I am deeply humbled and honored to have a very special guest join me on the show! EAST FOREST has been the leader of underground ‘sound healing’ ceremonies around the world since 2008 and, most recently, collaborated with Ram Dass on an incredible 4-part project. In this incredibly insightful and inspiring episode, East Forest and I explore:

  • How when we follow our gifts, it becomes an act of service for others as well as for ourselves
  • The value of creativity and expressing ourselves through creative acts, whatever they may be
  • His journey from the fame, shame, money game and a spiritual shift that took him on a new path of optimization and risk taking
  • Our experience of being awake and alive as a yearning to be reconnected to God or Source (and the fear that might be keeping us from this)
  • How we’re all on a journey with no destination, and there is no wrong way
  • Psychedelics, distractions, and desire (along wit the mystery and paradoxes of being alive)
  • The importance of taking deep breaths, loving everybody, and telling the truth
  • What beliefs are, what truth is, and how to tell the truth 
  • The power of having tools and a soundtrack to support our journey to go even deeper (and our attachment to them)
  • The importance of making the personal choice whether to stay asleep or be awake
  • And so much more that points us back to the truth!

As a teacher, using music as a tool, East Forest has trail-blazed a path in the wellness movement building bridges between the digital and natural worlds. As a leader in the burgeoning field of “organic tech,” he regularly cross pollinates his work to bring together diverse fields to explore the intersection between technology, nature and the human experience — with a brain-body approach aimed towards secular yet deeply spiritual personal development; a methodology grounded as much in science as in ritual and ceremony. His collaborations include Google, Esalen Institute, Consciousness Hacking, and Science And Nonduality (SAND) among others, in addition to his weekly podcast series that offers discussions with thought leaders alongside musically guided original meditations. With more than a dozen albums already making a positive impact in the world, this year, East Forest is dropping two more major projects — “Ram Dass” (4-parts) + “Music For Mushrooms: A Soundtrack For The Psychedelic Practitioner."

East Forest will also be on tour starting May 2019. See where he'll be and check out a show!

On Permission to Put Yourself First with Nancy Levin

Ep. 94

Do you ever lose sight of yourself the moment that someone you love expresses a need or desire of their own? Perhaps you start out anchored in your sense of self, but someone else’s waves can easily throw you off course. What if you could have the love you’ve always wanted without losing yourself, working so hard or feeling like you’re being suffocated? Great news: You can…. but you’ll need to do something pretty counter-intuitive. We need to get out of that old familiar double-bind: If I please myself, I disappoint you.

I invite you to join me for an episode I am simply thrilled (and truly humbled) to get to share with you! My guest today is Nancy Levin—a bestselling author, master integrative coach and radio host, who offers in-depth coaching programs designed to support clients in making themselves a priority and live on their own terms. We have a conversation full of insight, goosebumps, inspiration, and even a few laughs where together we explore:

  • what it means to be selfish (and a way to redefine it),
  • how we project the image of perfection to the world and manage the perception of others,
  • what happens when we’re not true to ourselves,
  • the importance (and journey) of feeling worthy,
  • the value of knowing our interior landscape and understanding the constellation of our life more clearly,
  • the truth that we all have the ability to touch another’s life so deeply,
  • the transformation that occurs when we move from an other-referenced life to a self-loving life,
  • what it means to have needs and ask for what you need,  
  • what happens when we reject or disown parts of ourselves (both the “negative” and the “positive”),
  • what a healthy relationship looks like, its purpose, and the power of truth telling,
  • independence, dependence, co-dependence, counter-dependence, and interdependence,
  • how to reclaim our selfishness, neediness, laziness along with all of our light,
  • the connection between worthiness and envy, jealousy, and the willingness to receive,
  • and how to expand our “havingness." 

Here are some ways to connect with Nancy, learn more about her Worthy Coaching program, and a few other resources to support you:

On the Religion of Kindness (& the Divinity in All Things) with Joy Resor

Ep. 93
“My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.” (Dalai Lama)

Can you remember a time in your life when someone, whether it be your spouse or significant other, mom or dad, brother or sister, a loved one, or even a stranger was kind to you?

Change the scenario and think of another moment where you were kind to another person? What was their reaction, and how did you respond? 

Now, shift from your head into your heart and notice the feelings there.

Kindness affects the giver and receiver, leaving a lasting impression on both.

Joining me today on the Being Inspired Radio Show is spiritual counselor, the founder of Joy On Your Shoulders, and the author of the new children’s book, Designed To Shine! Read-Aloud Rhymes For Any Size Heart, Joy Resor, and together, we are going to unpack what the Dalai Lama said when he expressed that kindness is his religion. Tune in and listen as we explore:

* What love means and all that it contains,

* how practicing kindness requires us to know its opposite (and how when we experience the opposite, we can find our way back to healing through kindness),

* how not belonging can lead to feeling comfortable in your own skin and loving yourself wholly and healing into joy,

* the gifts of experiencing the illusion of separation or feeling unwanted,

* how it is through our darkness that we can transmute ourselves into the brightest light,

* the oneness of everything,

* how kindness heals the illusion of separation and is deeply connected to presence,

* as we remember who we truly are, we can extend kindness first to ourselves and then to others,

* inspiring ways to show even more kindness to those around us,

* and the greatest gift we can give—the gift of true kindness.

If something we said inspired you today, be sure to connect with Joy over at or pick up a copy of her latest book on Amazon.

And remember if you enjoyed this episode to help us spread the message of kindness and expressing more of who we truly are far and wide by subscribing, liking, sharing, reviewing, and/or rating.

With much love + gratitude,
