#20 Energy Healing and the Super HERO Code with Susie Anthony
Having studied diverse religions, psychological and spiritual development practices for over two decades, and worked with some of the most influential psychological and spiritual leaders based in the USA, the Middle East, Far East and Europe, Susie Anthony has become an established personal development  and human potential mentor in her own right.   Her work as a teacher and mentor to tens of thousands of students (often unpaid as part of her philanthropic drive) has allowed her to develop the Super HERO Code.   The Code is a map to personal development which allows individuals to identify and understand where they are on their own personal development journey. It helps people to identify the challenges they are facing, and provides all the tools to face and cope with these. It reveals how to understand what the next steps are before they unfold in real life. It’s totally unique. It’s genius has attracted attention the world over. The greater efficacy of The Code personal development mentoring programme stems from its ability to bring an awakening to spirituality in all, regardless to the individual’s beliefs, religion or spiritual practice (or lack thereof).   In the last 30 years, Susie’s diverse experiences working with world renowned spiritual leaders and elite business leaders, including working directly with the world’s 5th richest man, Takahashi Harunori in Japan, have empowered her with the ability to not only build a business around the Super HERO Code, but also to ensure it is endorsed and supported by influential figureheads, philanthropists and powerful opinion-formers worldwide. To support her building this business, she is advised by Raul Alvarado, CEO, Accenture, a $28bn corporation, and Dylan Bourguignon, a Harvard MBA who has worked among the UK’s leading strategy consultants and private equity investment organisations.    Susie is a highly experienced operator on both sides of the pond, having ran her own award winning events, and her own holistic day spa and Manor House Retreat Centre on 7 acres in the UK. Formerly she was selected to head up an International Healing Outreach spanning over 29 countries for USA top author/psychologist Dr Joshua Stone's Foundation in Los Angeles. She led meditations and attunements at Dr Stone’s worldwide events of over 2,000 people in one auditorium.   ​The Super HERO Code teachings have been applied through Susie's work for the past 25 years, mentoring people from all walks of life and all ages, from the homeless and destitute to pillars of society, monarchy, heads of billion dollar corporations, commissioners of police, heads of government agencies, MP’s and the famous.   More about Susie's journey can be found, along with the map used within The Super HERO Code, in her award winning book A Map to God.

#19 Shining light on an artists creative process with Lucy Hardie
Lucy Hardie is an Australian artist best known for her meticulously rendered ink drawings on cotton paper. Her intricately constructed, evocative works are exhibited in Australia, the US and Europe and are featured in numerous art and literary publications worldwide. Through a devotion to the creation of beauty, a fascination with death as a catalyst for transformation and new life, and the portrayal of story and symbol as a means of reflecting our shared human experience, her works present as visual allegories: inviting viewers in to deeper felt experiences of intimacy, connection, tenderness and power. Lucy offers 1:1 mentoring to artists worldwide at a range of skill levels. Sessions are aimed at supporting individuals to connect with and clarify a personal artistic vision, build on their technical and conceptual skills, and take the next steps in their careers as artists. Sessions are tailored to the individual and may emphasise skills and/or professional development. Lucy takes an empowerment approach to mentoring. This involves a focus on supporting individuals develop and refine an artistic voice and style that is natural to them, and in coming up with their own solutions to challenges. Included in this is identifying potentially limiting or unproductive beliefs and behaviours inhibiting creative growth; and support in creating and committing to new, more productive approaches to moving forward. Lucy works with individuals at a range of skill levels and brings enthusiasm, patience and passion to supporting people in their artistic growth. www.lucyhardie.com Instagram: @lucyhardieart Facebook: Lucy Hardie Art

#18 Wholistic health and wellness with Gus and Brenda
Gus and Brenda Gus and Brenda have always had a passion to help themselves and other people enjoy life and live connected to the Power within. They work with energy and passion to help bring about change for their clients. Both Gus and Brenda, independently, enjoyed the excitement and freedom of spending a few years travelling and working around the world. When they met and settled in their home county Cork, they commenced their holistic health journey by training as Ki Massage therapists in September 1990 with the IHCA (Irish health culture association). This was a time when not many people understood the benefits of holistic treatment and the power of the Life force within. Gus and Brenda noticed the benefits of their treatments to their clients and they wanted to expand their knowledge and abilities in order to improve their own lives and the lives of their families and clients. Over the following years, they gained qualifications and training in Holistic Nutrition, Psychotherapy/relaxation, Stress management, Mindfulness and became Yoga instructors. Gus pursued lengthy training in Ortho-bionomy and Craniosacral therapy which is what he uses very successfully in most of his treatments now. Brenda added the very popular and effective Reflexology qualification to her repertoire. “Continue to learn” is their motto. Combining family life, 3 children, a dog and a cat with full-time work and holistic therapies in the late 90s kept the couple busy. So, in 2001 Gus retired from the construction industry. Brenda followed in 2005, leaving her career in the Food and Pharmaceutical world. Sea swimming, cycling, walking in nature and outdoor life are passions of this couple. They enjoy travelling in Ireland and abroad, in their campervan and will always chat and have a laugh with the interesting people they meet. In this episode we learn about the incredible duo’s passion and the combining of passions to uplift humanity.

#17 Embracing our gifts with James Byrne
James Roderick Byrne was born in Townsville in 1997 and has lived there ever since. He graduated in the Class of 2014 in Townsville State High School. It was there that he was one of the children with a different mind thanks to his Asperger’s Syndrome. As an adult, he’s still not your average person. Average is no fun anyways. His hobbies include writing, filming, and flying... with massive bookshelves to prove it. Since graduating high school and studying Aviation at Central Queensland University, James was eager to travel and see the world at any opportunity. Having already been to Japan, Indonesia, and Thailand, he had an especially transformative journey through Turkey and Greece in 2015. He also studied abroad at the Korean Aerospace University in the Republic of Korea during 2017. Earlier that year, James and his father John volunteered as deck crew for the YWAM Medical Ship in Papua New Guinea. As it made its way from Alotau to Lae, James realized his talent for volunteering and charity work. The thrill of adventure and joy in contributing to a better world were the best parts. Then came February of 2019, when Townsville was struck by a disastrous flood. James was motivated to volunteer however he could. He can be seen volunteering at the Community Information Centre, studying hard in his Bachelor of Aviation and helping his city whenever and however possible.

#6 Turn off the TV and get out into the Garden talking all things Agri/Aquaponics with Justin Mason
Justin Mason is the Founder of Agri Aquaponics and agriculture has been in Justin’s blood since a boy. As a young lad he was propagating seeds on his garage roof in suburban Melbourne. Sowing and Growing. Having been working on a farm since a teenager he gained drive, passion, and purpose in toiling the land and seeing it transform. Fast forward 25 years after working in London, Brisbane and Canada he came home to Melbourne. Having been working in the city on the 25th floor he looked down at a mirage of roof tops, the dead space, the valuable space which could be made more productive. How can I do something about that? With 3 main drivers at the heart of Justin’s purpose: Nutrition: Access to living vegetables and herbs. Utilising unproductive space Water conservation: using it wisely. How can we make unproductive space more productive? The use of space near the city. Roof tops, car parks, balcony and patios. Improve Nutrition. While travelling the world, it was more apparent that the average person’s nutrition is poor. We are accustomed to eating more and more processed foods that have travelled hundreds of kilometres. He asked the question: What if we all had our own mini gardens and grew fresh vegetables. Not just a normal veggie patch but a self-watering, mobile garden that you can place on a patio, balcony, back courtyard. Now we are turning 1 square metre into a highly productive garden. Water Wise - The drought. Watching how the last drought effected the farmers and knowing more about the drought cycles of the last decade I questioned - how can we use water more efficiently. How do we capture and recycle water as a domestic user? The business was born: Agri Aquaponics. Agri Aquaponics designs, builds and maintains organic aquaponic & hydroponic gardens. Grow your own food anywhere. A patio, courtyard or driveway. Convert unproductive space to productive space with mobile herb and vegetable gardens using hydroponic and aquaponic principals. Our unique designs are a self watering, self supported vegetable and herb gardens. Go off the grid, the gardens can be powered by solar panels and batteries. Organic food with zero carbon footprint.
