Being an Alchemist Leader with Hoda Mohajerani
This episode is sponsored by The EVOLVE Program - Access the FREE Unlocking Higher Purpose Mini Course here ▶︎ http://unlockinghigherpurpose.com and join our community of catalysts for the awesome opportunities about to unfold!     In this episode we dive into:  ✔️ What it looks like to lead from multidimensional alchemy  ✔️ A snapshot of new earth business models  ✔️ What’s a regenerative product and how is it made  ✔️ When Soul leadership trumps logic   ✔️ Leading in the dark when something else is lighting with way  ✔️ Why old models will crumble  ✔️ Tasting the difference when food is medicine for body, soul and spirit  ✔️ Nothing is new, it’s all been done and until we innerstand death, we’ll stay stuck in an unproductive paradigm    About Hoda Mohajerani:   Hoda Mohajerani has synthesized over three decades of experience in women’s, environmental and human rights advocacy; natural medicines, premium organic branding, fashion and music production; into a systems-based, servant-leadership, to nurture and realize visions for people and the planet.    A graduate from the School of Oriental and African Studies, London, Hoda’s academic background spans sociology, literature, arabic and comparative religions. She has worked with various ngo’s such as the Women’s Environmental Network, the UN, the Centre for the Study of Democracy and has been a frequent guest on the BBC. She has been described by those closest to her as a: Visionary Leader. Servant of Love. Critical thinker and Compassionate Bullshit Slayer.    The many routes of Hoda's personal "Silk Road“ all eventually led to the founding of CHAKRA CHAI: A regenerative, mission-driven company rooted in the five thousand year tradition of Ayurveda. Their primary tagline "Conscious Nourishment for The Conscious Age“ hints at the company’s fundamental principle: Consciousness is at the heart of our existence. Our heightened (or reduced) access to Consciousness determines the realities that we experience- individually and collectively. The story of the becoming of this "Brand from the Beyond“, why it matters and how food can be a conscious vehicle of transformation (and vehicle for the transformation of consciousness) will be just some of the topics we will discuss on today’s podcast.    Instagram @chakrachaiofficial  www.chakrachai.co    Connect with Stephanie:    ▶︎ WEBSITE  |  https://www.stephanietrager.com ▶︎ YOUTUBE  |  https://www.youtube.com/channel/stephanietragercatalysttalks   ▶︎ INSTAGRAM  |  https://www.instagram.com/stephanietrager   ▶︎ FACEBOOK  |  https://www.facebook.com/stephanietrager ▶︎ LINKEDIN  |  https://www.linkedin.com/stephanietrager ▶︎ TWITTER  |  https://www.twitter.com/stephanietrager  👇 SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL 👇 https://www.youtube.com/channel/stephanietragercatalysttalks

John Roulac: Connecting the Dots on Regenerative Agriculture, Oceans and the Systems in Between
This episode is sponsored by The EVOLVE Program - grab the free Unlocking Higher Purpose Series - http://unlockinghigherpurpose.com In this episode we dive into: A change agent’s mark on the world from forest conservation to hemp food producer to major global health food brand founder, to regenerative agriculture strategist, to backyard composter to activist and author as speaker and seeker of truth Nutiva founder went from selling hemp bars in the back of his car to exceeded a billion dollars in sales How governmental agencies shield the truth The state of our planet and why it’s time to suspend identifying with one side or the other How to regenerate soil and why it’s the key to changing the climate narrative Oh and so much more from a seasoned environmentalist, creator, business leader, and no taker of bullshit! About John Roulac John is a hemp innovator, serial entrepreneur, investor, philanthropist, writer, and champion of regenerative agriculture. As the 1999 founder of the organic superfoods brand Nutiva, he has sourced and formulated $1B in retail sales of organic superfoods in the past 20 years. Through his leadership, Nutiva became the fastest-growing superfoods company on the planet and was named one of Inc. magazine’s fastest-growing companies in America for seven years in a row. He is also an executive producer of the Netflix blockbuster regenerative agriculture film Kiss the Ground, which is narrated by Woody Harrelson. John was blessed to spend his childhood summers on the islands of the Pacific Northwest, where he played among the forests and tide pools. When nuclear waste was dumped nine miles from his California home, John’s ecological awareness was awakened. He began his central life journey: to study natural systems and discover practical solutions to pressing environmental challenges. Over his career, John has founded six non-profit organizations, including Great Plains Regeneration, Agroforestry Regeneration Communities (creating regenerative food forests), and Forests Forever which placed the California Forest Protection Act, Prop 130, on the California state ballot in 1990. His passionate hemp advocacy brought him to sue the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. This long legal battle culminated in a historic 2004 federal court victory to keep hemp foods legal. He is a pioneer of the modern home-composting movement and has authored four books on hemp and composting that have combined sales of more than one million copies. He has been interviewed on numerous radio and television programs and has been widely quoted in the print media—from Wired magazine to the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal. In his leisure time, John enjoys travel, hiking, playing basketball, and soaking in natural hot springs.

Peak Wellness: Inventory or Bypass with Stephanie Trager
This Episode offers a reflective exercise potent for Solstice, endings and new beginnings.  Stephanie explores a process for tackling our own peak wellness, upleveling and avoiding a bypass. She dives into the first step in her process, INVENTORY, what it means, how to do it, why to do it and what if we don't do it. She shares a personal example of how her life was recently impacted, what inventory looked like including taking ENERGETIC RESPONSIBILITY and how to contribute to the collective wellness on our planet right now from the inside out. About Stephanie Trager I’m Stephanie, host of this podcast, an Earthkeeper, a catalyst to catalysts, business alchemist and evolutionary coach. I’m a speaker, impact strategist, and attorney with a massive love for trees. Since a young age I’ve been aware of the multi-dimensional realities co-existing in time which meant psychic intuitive gifts were present along with challenges of knowing a world no-one around me could explain. There was a time when my linear world of NYC cut throat law and corporate decision making cut me off from myself- the healer, see’er, feeler, and passionate wisdom seeker. In seeking my truth and to understand my gifts, I immersed in decades of off the beaten path experiences… living and studying with indigenous communities, living off the grid, learning from wild experiences like being chased up close by a mother bear, being face to face with mountain lions- alone in the woods, working on the front lines of environmental justice, standing with a shotgun to my face, running from an angry logger (who killed my friend) with a chainsaw up a steep mountain slope… Twenty years a martial artist deep diving in danger zones in Brazil, being healed of a severe brain injury by a Shuar Shaman in the Ecuadorian Amazon, co-founding a corporate responsibility law firm in the 1990’s, coaching superstar change agents for 15+ years in everything from peak wellness, higher purpose, leadership and sustainability (before it was a thing), to business and negotiations, plus holding space as a healer in the domain of the Soul… This journey has shown me one common thing, the key to understanding who we truly are is connecting with nature. We are nature. I’m here to connect people to who they really are so they can do what they’re really here to do. I work with individuals and organizations in bespoke coaching programs, shamanic energy medicine sessions, evolutionary impact and business strategy, program development, consulting, keynote speaking, workshops, and in retreats and expeditions and am constantly creating juicy content and modalities to help my clients transform at the deepest core level and to navigate and transcend these intense times so they can align and thrive from the inside and out. I’ve spent years working in impact investing, environmental justice & human rights advocacy, had a former career in corporate litigation. Human evolution, business, human rights and environmental respect are my passions. I believe we can create a thriving economy based on reciprocity, social and environmental justice. It begins with our remembering who we really are.

Charles Eisenstein: Collapsing Worldviews
So much gratitude for all who are sharing these episodes. This is my joy and service. May this touch the hearts of millions. In this episode we cover how to: => Hold polarities without making anyone wrong => Recognize when we are agents of our own gaslighting (wow!) => Be with the collapsing of our own worldviews => Participate in the experience without colluding or losing yourself => See the connection between what's unfolding and market economics => Share more joy and come from service to bridge any divide. About Charles Eisenstein Charles Eisenstein is a teacher, speaker, and writer focusing on themes of civilization, consciousness, money, and human cultural evolution. He is the author of Sacred Economics, a book that co-mingles  actual economics with the  psycho spiritual dimensions of money.

Junglekeepers of the Amazon with Paul Rosolie
About Paul Rosolie Paul Rosolie is a naturalist, explorer, author, and award winning wildlife filmmaker. For the past 16 years he has specialized in threatened ecosystems and species in countries like Indonesia, Brazil, India, and Peru. In the Amazon, Rosolie has spent extensive time traveling with poachers documenting the illegal trade in endangered species. Rosolie’s memoir on Amazonian wildlife and exploration, “Mother of God”, was hailed as “gripping” by Jane Goodall, and the Wall Street Journal applauded Rosolie’s environmental call-to-arms for its ‘rare immediacy and depth’. In 2013 Rosolie spoke at the United Nations global Forum on Forests while accepting an award for his Amazonian wildlife short-film ‘An Unseen World”. He is the co-founder of Junglekeepers Peru an organization that focuses on protecting threatened habitat in western Amazonia. To date, Junglekeepers protects over 55,000 acres of primary forest Junglekeepers conserves threatened habitat in the vitally important Madre de Dios region of the Peruvian Amazon. The Las Piedras watershed is part of the Andes/Amazon hotspot—one of the most biodiverse and pristine areas on earth. This forest is home to tens of millions of trees, numerous indigenous communities, and untold numbers of animal heartbeats. In recent decades new roads, illegal logging, poaching, and gold mining have begun to seriously degrade the ancient forest that is the source of life in this region. Junglekeepers Rangers patrol and safeguard almost 30,000 acres of this incredible landscape. It is central to the Junglekeepers ethos to employ and train local and indigenous community members in the active protection of land that is ultimately theirs. Forest Rangers monitor our concessions, maintain trails and report any illegal activity occurring on the land being monitored. Rangers also track wildlife to contribute to broader scientific datasets in the region. For local Peruvians, our Ranger Program also offers an employment alternative to protect the land rather than being forced to participate in harmful activity due to economic pressure. Our current and past rangers tell us this work is a great source of pride as it empowers them in the stewardship of their homeland.

Root Cause, Addiction and Finding Purpose with Dean Taraborelli
In this episode we discuss healing from addiction the wholistic way, root causes, underlying issues, interconnectivity, passion and purpose, how to navigate these intense uncomfortable times, epigenetics, shamanism and expanding consciousness, beliefs and their power, and how to transform and choose to do what you’re here to do right now.  Dean Taraborelli, Founder, Administrator, Counselor at the Sanctuary at Sedona.  Founder of the Sanctuary at Sedona, Dean is also currently Senior teaching staff at Four Winds Society, an international school of energy medicine. His credentials also include being an Ordained Minister; a Certified Shamanic Breathwork® Facilitator; a Founding Member Society for Shamanic Practitioners; a Member of Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology; a Member of National Institute for Holistic Addiction Studies. In battling his substance abuse problem, Dean gained real expertise in being on the treatment side of rehab centers. He was a patient at many well-regarded addiction treatment institutions in the country, some more than once. He has be in over 10 inpatient drug rehabilitation centers, participated in several inpatient extended care programs, numerous outpatient and intensive outpatient programs, years of private therapy, support groups, 12-step programs, several detox programs, and numerous medication protocols.  While many of these worked temporarily on the symptoms of the problem, he was unable to achieve any real sustainable change. As conventional therapies and approaches failed, he expanded his search worldwide to learn about mental health and recovery approaches. Dean has traveled extensively to sacred sites in over 60 countries to study holistic health, world mythology, religion, spirituality, wisdom traditions, and indigenous healing and wellness practices. “My real shift came when I was a patient at yet another treatment center where I was reminded again of the definition of insanity, which is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. This is commonly used to describe the cycle of addictive behavior. It occurred to me that this should also apply to the treatment of addiction as well.  It is insane to keep treating this issue the same way and expecting a different result, which I had done for 20 years in treatment and therapy. I wanted o get well, so I paid very close attention in treatment and realized that I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t getting better. Most of the people I went to treatment with were not getting better either. I knew in that moment, that all of my years in treatment and my search for my own freedom from addiction wasn’t a waste. It was my training. My life purpose was to create a treatment process that actually worked by truly addressing the underlying issues of addiction, anxiety, and depression. This model needed to be holistic or it most likely wouldn’t work. The rest is history. When I created The Sanctuary 16 years ago, we were the only holistic treatment model available.  Now, the term holistic and integrative is common in addiction and mental health treatment. We were the pioneers then and still the pioneers today. It is not enough to add some holistic components to a treatment program, they need to be integrated to work. The Sanctuary remains the pioneer in holistic mental health treatment because we are always researching the latest in neuroscience and therapeutic processes.”  Find Dean and the Sanctuary at Sedona:  https://www.sanctuary.net/  https://www.instagram.com/sanctuary_at_sedona/ Contact Stephanie Trager at www.stephanietrager.com

Simon Taylor: Courage of a Global Witness
Simon Taylor is a co-founder of Global Witness (www.globalwitness.org), together with two others, Charmian Gooch, and Patrick Alley.  Simon met Charmian and Patrick whilst working at the Environmental Investigations Agency (EIA).  Global Witness is a UK and US based Non-Governmental organisation, that campaigns to end environmental and human rights abuses driven by the exploitation of natural resources and corruption in the global political and economic system. Having worked on Global Witness’ first campaign to investigate and shut down revenue streams to the genocidal Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, Simon then began Global Witness’ oil and corruption campaign in 1999.  This started a global effort at exposing malfeasance in the oil, gas and mining industries, and a call for their transparency and accountability - some of the most corrupt industries on the planet – for their operations extracting oil, gas and minerals.  Revenue streams for many countries dependent on natural resources often make up the bulk of national income, and yet frequently efforts to access natural resources drive conflict, instability, and resultant revenue streams are looted.  This work helped Global Witness shape and conceive the Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Campaign (www.pwyp.org), which Simon was the co-founder of in 2002, together with George Soros and other NGOs.  Today, PWYP is a global  movement consisting of more than 1000 organisations spread across more than 50 countries, all aligned around holding companies and governments to account in their extraction of natural resources. In 2002, the UK Government responded to PWYP, and launched the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, or  EITI.  This is a multi-stakeholder initiative, that places civil society in the central role of holding governments and companies to account for the revenue streams developed from extraction.  Simon now serves as an international civil society board member of the EITI. (See www.eiti.org) In recent years, Simon has also increasingly focussed on seeking enhanced accountability for companies and their executives for serious acts of corruption.  To give one example:  Simon is a co-complainant to the Milan Public Prosecutor’s office, about a corrupt deal obtained in Nigeria by the international oil companies Shell and Eni.  This led to a criminal investigation by the prosecutor, and both companies, together with a number of their senior executives, are on trial in Milan for international Corruption.  The trial is drawing to a close at time of writing (late 2020).  All those accused, and both companies, deny any wrong-doing. Simon is increasingly also focussed on the mechanisms by which the fossil fuel industry has corrupted and co-opted global politics to such an extent that it has been able to prevent appropriate action to address the climate crisis. Global Witness is substantially advancing its focus from sectoral reform, to seeking means by which it is shut down, and its decline is responsibly and equitably managed, taking into account the needs of workers, but at a pace determined by scientific understanding of the climate crisis.

Sacred Shield: Shamanic Protection for the World Today with Peter Bonaker
Peter Bonaker is a social scientist, author of Sacred Shield: Shamanic Protection for the World Today. He’s a teacher and practitioner of Shamanic energy medicine, he lives in Denver Colorado and teaches his methods of shamanic healing and protection throughout the world. Peter experienced an extreme trauma and near-death experience at the age of 16.  He worked for 30 years as an educator at all levels in public education, from pre-kindergarten through to the 12th grade. He taught post-graduate students as an adjunct professor at the University of Denver for 10 years and also, oddly enough, worked as a licensed building contractor (still today).  Simultaneously during this last period, he began his studies and teaching in the field of shamanic healing. Along the way on the shamanic part of this journey, he became curious about how a certain number of people presented repeatedly, exactly the same definite pattern reflecting the presence of what he came to know and describe as a very dark energetic form.  The pattern never deviated and is quite unusual in contrast to the standard teachings in the shamanic field.  This dark energetic form knows no boundaries of any kind that can be consistently determined.  In the shamanic field, he has had the opportunity to work with individuals throughout the entire world.  There appear to be no economic, geographical, ethnic, gender or other types of borders or boundaries that this dark energetic form refused to cross.  Any and all individuals appear to be equally available, particularly when they might happen to be especially vulnerable for one reason or another. . In 2008, Peter was invited to become an assistant teacher which led quickly to becoming a senior faculty member of the healing Light Body School and part of the Four Winds faculty.  He taught for the next eleven years a Jungian oriented class called Walking with Protection, on through to many of the other master classes, including one he developed referred to Advanced Shamanic Skills.  Both his shamanic practice and that class resulted in authoring the book ‘Sacred Shield: Shamanic Protection for the World Today’.

Strossen’s 2018 book HATE: Why We Should Resist It with Free Speech, Not Censorship has earned praise from ideologically diverse experts, including progressive Harvard University Professor Cornel West and conservative Princeton University Professor Robert George. HATE was selected by Washington University as its 2019 “Common Read” for all incoming students. Her earlier book, Defending Pornography: Free Speech, Sex, and the Fight for Women's Rights, was named a New York Times "notable book" of 1995. Strossen has made thousands of public presentations before diverse audiences around the world, including on more than 500 different campuses and in many foreign countries, and she has appeared on virtually every national TV news program. Her hundreds of publications have appeared in many scholarly and general interest publications. Strossen graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard College and magna cum laude from Harvard Law School. Before becoming a law professor, she practiced law in Minneapolis (her hometown) and New York City. She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Your Cosmic Alarm Clock with Yanik Silver
Yanik Silver has been called a Cosmic Catalyst, a Maverick Mischief-maker and a Galactic Goofball. He redefines how business is played in the 21st century at the intersection of evolutionary growth, impact and fun. Yanik is the creator of the Cosmic Journal, author of Evolved Enterprise and the founder of Maverick1000, a global collective of visionary entrepreneurs making a serious difference in the world, without taking themselves too seriously. In fact, it’s not unusual to find him dressed as a lemur, a showgirl or even in matching mermaid tails with Sir Richard Branson. Yanik believes we all have our own “Cosmic Alarm Clock” that goes off at exactly the right time to fulfill our destiny of greatness. It starts as a whisper, a small voice that gets louder and louder until you either answer it or hit snooze. He has spent his life exploring that connection of head, heart and highest purpose….with his colored pens in hand. It might have all started when he snuck out at the age of 5 to buy markers—only to catch the wrong bus home and end up at the police station. (Undaunted, his love of doodling and exploring still continue to this day!) Where to find Yanik: www.yaniksilver.com The Cosmic Journal (we reference several pages in the episode) Maverick1000

Meaning Making in These Times
Founder and Chief Catalyst at Intentional Paradigms, LLC, Stephanie leverages 25 years of combined expertise​ as eclectic mix of shamanic soul alchemist, purpose whisperer, business executive and leadership coach, adventure guide, messaging wordsmith, lawyer, corporate responsibility and impact strategist. She's takes seriously her responsibility as an empath intuitive-with a massive love for trees. www.stephanietrager.com After a 6.5 year career in corporate litigation at Davis Polk, she suffered a severe head injury which nothing could solve until 2.5 years later when she found herself in a shaman’s hut in the Ecuadorian Amazon. She experienced an instant healing only to learn the next day that this pristine jungle was just sold to a foreign copper mining company. Recommitting to her original passion, Stephanie has been advocating for environmental justice and business and human rights through her work as Chair of the American Bar Association’s Environmental Justice Committee, and advising major brands and Fortune 500 companies as well as Impact Entrepreneurs and NGOs on emerging trends, best practices, innovative strategies and opportunities to do well by doing good. More recently she's been humbled by her work with Toniic Institute, with a brilliant team immersed in the support of a community of impact investors. What she’s learned from 13 years of coaching in everything from peak wellness to business, communications and leadership, and with more than two decades of off the beaten path experience in studying indigenous wisdom, shamanism and unlocking purpose for her clients is that personal growth is the path to a sustainable world.  Stephanie became an attorney after her friend David Chain was killed by a logger in a more than decade old battle over the ancient redwood forests. Working as a steward for the environment she was part of a team that helped save more than 7,400 acres of Old Growth Redwood forests in Northern California,namely Headwaters Forest. Her activism and passion is fueled by her voracious search for truth in a word with multidiensional possibilities of now. Connect with Stephanie at www.stephanietrager.com
