I first encountered Casle at the Silverton reservoir years ago. She would Kyac and while she was out she would clean up the lake. She would come back with trash every day. One day a lady dropped a bag at the dock and Casle got out of the kyack and helped the lady understand the error of her ways. They say that all it takes is one person to make the change and it is true. Since Casle has been cleaning the lake others have taken notice and the area looks so much better. She doesn't stop there she has built a network of paddlers from around the world She has built a Kyacing community called the Church of the Double Bladed Paddle. I think you wil love Casle Portner and her stories and if you are into paddling join the Church of the Double Bladed Paddle on Facebook.

I have stayed away from political conversations for the most part. I feel that the field is full and you could get much better insight from other sources than this if you want it. That being said I do think that the way we interact needs to be considered. In terms of Politics in general we do not really go there. What we talk about is communication itself and how we can do it better. There are plenty of good ideas in here and I would love to hear each of your ideas about the things we talk about. Have you had success with people who think differently than you? Are you frustrated about how to approach and open up conversations? We have some ideas in here. What are your intentions when communicating? Are you a generous person? Would you listen to someone who hasn't heard you out first? What is the outcome you desire? Is your method of communication getting the results you desire? Seek to understand then then to be understood.
Love yourself Love your others #Truth #Beauty #Love
Steve is a good man and I had the best time haning out with him. There are a lot of good nuggets in here for you. Some leaders are born some are built over time and experience. Steve is a natural-born leader and that is something that he didn't want to be. His Drill instructor informed him of the fact that he will be found out; The cream comes to the top. We have a case of the reluctant leader which is very common. Because to lead means we must challenge others to be better. To lead means we have to live up to a higher standard. To lead is to gain trust by being true to your words and deeds. No wonder so many shy away from leading. We all shine through with our talents and after talking with Steve it is obvious that leadership is his passion and his obvious destiny. His years of rubbing shoulders with Corporate exectutives and leading in a corporate environment gave him many skills and he is now following the teaching path. Leveraging his knowlege and skills to help the next generation of leaders. Listen up I think you will enjoy getting to know Steve as much as I did. This is a long show but we could have talked for hours more. Thank you rembmber to subscribe to the podcast.

Some people go their own way. They must create they must perform, and they are unable to conform anymore. Liv grew up a preachers daughter and there is a whole lot of conformity in that world, and she conformed for the most part all the way through Williams College graduation in which George Bush told the class to follow their dreams and boom! That's all it took. Liv goes to Portland to do something unexpected for an ivy league preachers daughter she strips. That was years ago, and she still strips once a week. I think its like comedians you just gotta get your stage time in or you get rusty. I think you will enjoy this conversation. I learned a lot, some assumptions are challenged I love that in a conversation. Love y'all subscribe and listen.

I really wanted to study the field of psychedelics as the news of more promising treatments in addiction and depression. I reached out to the Heffter institute after looking through their materials through an open e-mail to whoever would answer from the organization. My motive is to get more information to the public regarding the issue of Psilocybin which is on the ballot. I found out much more than i knew which means you will too. Dr Greer is a pioneer in studies into MDMA where he legally made MDMA for studies. This lasted until the drug was rescheduled but the insight was there and the drive to do more work in the field. The Heffter institute where he is the medical director are heading studies using psilocybin to treat depression in cancer patients and many other studies. Listen up you will hear things you didn't know. Subscribe to the podcast and support if you love the show.

In this episode we talk about religion family addiction hyperactivity, the values of human connection. We talk about being honest with ourselves and never feeling up to par with the requirements of society. People with hyper activity are always in trouble. They just can't sit and do noting for long periods of time. The world doesn't fit the hyper active child so we drug them. Then we think it odd that they seek out drugs to deal with the challenge of not being normal. Drugs help to calm the nerves and make you feel okay until they don't. So what are you to do? Well Jacob has decided to seek treatment and get to the root of what's bothering him. He is ready to begin the work. I wish him the best of luck and we will talk again after he in is in recovery.

I Met Randy about twelve years ago he was the lead manager in a statewide launch of our new Lottery systems. He worked for a Lottery vendor at the time and their team was tasked with training the people throughout the state of Oregon about the new terminal. Randy worked with many different people from all over America and the world in this position. I was impressed with his casual approach to getting things done. People just did the work for him. He treated everyone with kindness and respect and brought new people into the fold in ways that made them feel like they had been with the team forever.
