20 - Three Lessons (and Life Update)
In this impromptus episode, Amy shares about why she has been MIA for the last 6 months on the podcast waves and three things she has learnt during this time away from the microphone.  This is a very conversational episode so it is probably not as well thought out as Amy would have liked but we still hope that you will take away what you need from sharing this journey of living life well.

19 - Intellectual Wellness with Doug Thompson
After an unexpected break, Amy is back with an interview with Doug Thompson, a passionate storyteller and TEDx speaker.  Doug can usually be found sharing his passion for storytelling in his LinkedIn videos and his Tech Story podcast.  His passion is coaching and mentoring other technology professions on how to stop “techsplaining” and start storytelling.  He believes that everyone has a story, and it is just a matter of unlocking it from the grips of the subconscious mind. Currently Doug is an AI Ambassador and Technology Strategist Director for the Education team at Microsoft where he leverages his 30+ years in tech sales to help his customers transform the student expereince to empower teachers and students of today create the world of tomorrow. Doug and his wife, of more than 37 years, enjoy spending time with their two children and 7 grandchildren and 2 rescue dogs whenever possible.  He is also a retired triathlete and is a 2-time Ironman Triathlon finisher. In this episode, Doug shares about his “scale of 10” in decision making, the power of networking and reflection, all with a sense of humour. While this interview sits within the “intellectual wellness” segment of our "6 dimensions of wellness" series, Doug shares many other nuggets of wisdom on how to thrive and not just survive. We know you will enjoy this chat.

11 - Perspective and Freedom for all (Social Justice Segment 1)
At the time of recording this episode, it has just been announced that the State of Victoria in Australia is going into Stage 4 lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Amy encourages listeners to have perspective when it comes to the restrictions of our freedoms and to think about the freedoms of others that have been denied not due to the pandemic (though the pandemic has likely made things worse) but to something much more sinister: human slavery/trafficking (our first social justice topic).  You can find the list of resources and organisations mentioned in the episode in  our growing FB community group:  www.facebook.com/groups/livelifewelltpcommunity/.

6 - Empathy and Active Listening: A conversation with Jen Wright and Sophie Taua'i
As a follow on from Episode 5, we are sharing an intimate and real conversation Amy had with NZ born soul-centred coach and founder of her own creative business agency, Sophie Taua'i and a mama of seven kids, founder of Let Light In and soon-to-be author, Jen Wright (also a Kiwi) who has worked and lived with Indigenous communities in Australia for over 10 years. What started out as a conversation geared towards discussing racism and reconciliation pivoted to an emphasis on empathy and active listening. We cover things such as growing up bi-racial or not white, how that’s affected the choices we’ve made in life, lived stories of racism that we’ve experienced but also acknowledgment of our own bias and prejudices as well. It’s open, unfiltered and we even hear a little peep from one of Jen’s kids towards the end of the episode! You can connect on Instagram with Sophie: @sophieco.coach and Jen: @jenwright_story.

5 - Four Ls in response to #blacklivesmatter
In light of the death of George Floyd, which has sparked global outrage against the systematic injustice experienced by black communities in the US and here in Australia, we have pushed the pause button on our series on the 6 Dimensions of Health for a two-part exploration on the topic of racism and reconciliation. In this first of two episodes, our host Amy shares some thoughts on how she is processing recent world events so that the flames against injustice can continue to burn bright in the long term and not just burn out when media attention has died down. NOTE: We are aware this is not a comprehensive nor detailed account of this complex issue however we hope that this episode empowers our audience to live life well in a purposeful way during these challenging times.
