Find Your Way - the podcast

By Gena McLean
We're all on a journey - that's what life is! But rarely is it a smooth one.

Change is certain - but it's also confronting and scary.

We all have to manage it but many of us do so reluctantly and ineffectively...and we suffer for it, damaging our relationships, our self-esteem, and the chance to live a happy and satisfying life.

Find Your Way - the podcast, is based on Gena McLean's book by the same title, and explores what it takes to navigate change more consciously and compassionately so we can grow through it and live a more meaningful life.

A NEW SERIES FOR YOU! In the next 6 episodes I'll be sharing the microphone with my dear friend and colleague Megan Simpson. Together we'll explore our journey with each chapter from my new book FIND YOUR WAY, with this episode starting off with Chapter 1 - Live Aware.  Listen in to hear us discuss the concepts of living with awareness, getting curious, listening to life and stepping in time with it, allowing clarity to come and how important it is to do all that with compassion for ourselves. Megan and I have been on the journey together for 15 years and in that time have supported each other through all of life's ups and downs. Many a cup of tea has been drunk together and tears shed - but we've also laughed plenty, healed a lot, and grown heaps as we've navigated this wonderful and mysterious school we call life. Megan is an inspiring mentor for women with her own business in Bendigo working locally and via Zoom. She is the creator of COURAGE & CROWNS, a series of workshops for young women teaching them about self-love and self-worth. She works 1:1 and with groups supporting women to create a life they love.

Ep 12 Special Episode - My radio interview with Melanie Wrest on TRIBE FM
This is a recording of my very first radio interview for FIND YOUR WAY! I had the wonderful opportunity to be a guest on Melanie Wrest's radio program, Sunshine on Toast, on Tribe FM in SA a couple of weeks back. And what a great conversation we had! We delved into what led me to my journey as a seeker and how digging deeply into life's challenges can help us heal and resolve our experiences. We looked into what kind of a coach I consider myself to be if I'm not a 'true' Life Coach'. Mel also asked me to talk through my journaling process and how important it is for me to process on paper. being the seeker and the sage came up and that we each both and how important it is to look within for the wisdom and answers we seek. And how self-validation, self-belief and self-love are the keys to believing we are 'enough'. The origins of Find Your Way the book and this podcast was explored from its humble beginnings as social media posts, and we also touched on the self-publishing path. It was a wonderfully rich conversation I had with Melanie - one that I hope nourishes and inspires you to find your own way.
