Season 3 Episode 6 - Lucito de Jesus aka Dream Sensei
“Active patience allows the fourth dimension – spiritual aspect – of one’s life to manifest. Patience allows a person to be aligned with the higher will.” I had the pleasure of meeting Lucito de Jesus, aka. Dream Sensei, during a Daloy Movement Ritwal (ritual) session, their monthly online offering featuring different healers and teachers. The title of the event was “Unraveling the Spiritual Aspects of Dreams.” Cito, as he is called by his friends, was a dream analyst before he became an Aikido teacher, and decided to combine the two fields into his current nickname. We had an interesting conversation about the subconscious, the unconscious, about active patience, archetypes, the Shadow, and of course dreamwork. “Dream work is what we do before the dream, during the dream and after the dream.” To book your own dream analysis session, you can contact the Dream Sensei directly through messenger or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I spoke to Princess Manzon, the creator of Maya Cacao, one of my favorite ceremonial cacao providers in the Philippines.

Season 3 Episode 3 - Alok Appadurai
Alok Appadurai is the founder and CEO of Uplift Millions, a 7-figure, global coaching company for impact-driven, service based entrepreneurs who want to change the world. I was drawn to Alok’s high-vibrating energy, which he exudes throughout his posts and videos. In our conversation, I asked him to share his journey and how he got to where he is now, living the lifestyle of his dreams, after a pivotal moment five years ago in his professional and personal life. “In 2016, I lost everything. It was one of those moments in life, I was a half-time single dad, I had my little boy, and we shared a one-room studio, I had no car, I barely could keep a roof over our head. (…) The ego, the pride, all of that just got pummeled. There I was, I had been this rising star, in the social impact business space, I had given a TEDx talk, gotten all these public accolades, and all of that. That first step was really SURRENDER. What am I holding on to? Where is my ego in the way?” “When I lost everything, it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I didn’t know it at the time. Now I look back and realize that what I have learned and the changes that I made in that time period when I had nothing was the most important changes that I could have made.” To learn more about Alok and his Uplift Millions head over to: https://we.upliftmillions.com/

Season 3 episode 2 - Ojas Oneness
Vietnam-based meditation teacher Ojas Oneness talks about his 42-day blindfolded and 21-day fasting experiment: “Hunger is so deep. Once we cross seven days, ten days, the hunger increases. It’s like a big monster we need to face. Monster in the sense of so much difficulty. So for that, I need to stabilize myself. I need to take deep breaths. I need to say to myself, “I can do it. This body is temporary. The mind is temporary. Mental need is temporary. Physical need is temporary. I want to witness who I am. I am doing research on me, to know who I am. I’m speaking like this. Is it me? When I am doing a challenge, a different me comes up. Is it me? I want to dig inside.” Learn more about Ojas' work, combining Art and Meditation, through: https://diviners.in/ Check out his short film "the Purpose" here: https://youtu.be/rZ8v4J0aAlM

Season 3 Episode 1 - Lorna Bondoc
“Jail is something that liberated me from the prison that was my head, and the heart that was locked up." "The irony of it, when I was in jail, that was when I set myself free.” Most people in my community know Lorna Bondoc as a coach, teacher, mentor and business woman. What not everyone knows is that Lorna was wrongfully incarcerated in Manila, Philippines, back in 2016, for a total of five harrowing months. In this episode, she shares her story of forgiveness and inner strength.

Season 2 Episode 10 - Richard Rudd
For the final episode of season two, I had the pleasure of speaking to Richard Rudd, the author of the Gene Keys, and a modern day mystic. When I stumbled into the magical world of the Gene Keys about a year ago, in June 2020, I would have never have imagined that I would be interviewing Richard for my podcast (I didn’t even have my podcast back then). In this conversation, we talked about the Six Wounds of Humanity, the practice of contemplation, about suffering, and death. To get some background on the Gene Key transmission, you can go straight to www.genekeys.com and start your journey there. You can also listen to my interview with Gene Key Ambassador Mark Bentley in Episode 3, Season 2. We started this conversation with the Holy Incantation of Solace, which you can follow here: https://genekeys.com/the-holy-incantation-of-solace/ Our conversation meandered from the Six Wounds of Humanity, to the Art of Contemplation, including Suffering and Death and Bliss. Says Richard: “Looking to the suffering of humanity can lead to deep compassion.” Aside from the website, you can catch Richard on Clubhouse where he and the GeneKeys team hold regular live talks now.

This week our podcast is in French! I talked to my friend Stephanie, who lives in Marseille, which is where we met in 2011, when we were both doing our culinary studies.

Season 2 Episode 8 - Christopher Luard
Christopher Luard is a senior meditation teacher based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He is the creator of the Such Sweet Thunder meditation program, and has a website and a book by the same name. In 2001, after witnessing the tragic events of September 11th unfold in New York City, Chris dedicated his life to the wisdom teachings, so that he may be able to pass them on to others, with the intention of bringing about a more peaceful, loving, and compassionate worldview. He has taught extensively around the world since 2009, completing residencies in centers in Malaysia, the U.K., Thailand, and the USA. In this episode, Chris leads us in a meditation practice called “Taking in the good,” that helps us to compensates for our inherently human negativity bias (25:20 time stamp for this meditation). This is a practice you can return to over and over again. “The brain doesn’t know the difference between a memory and present moment experience.” To find more about Chris's work, visit www.suchsweetthunder.org.

Of Philippine and American descent, she has delved deeply into learning and sharing many spiritual tools and modalities such as: plant medicine including Ayahuasca, a Course in Miracles, ThetaHealing, Arcturian healing, Munay-ki, yoga, and many more. In our conversation, she talks about the messages she received during lockdown in the US, as well as during her trip to Bhutan just before the world shut down.

Season 2 Episode 6 - Sebastien Fouillade
“The first thing that I struggled with when I came back was just how different I felt the world really was, and how I was living in that kind of made up hell, that was not real, that was artificial, especially in high-tech. I mean, we (at Microsoft) built all the high-tech, we made all the rules.” In this week’s episode, Sebastien Fouillade and I talked about his new book, Stairway to Healing, the Crooked Path we Travel, about an intense Ayahuasca ceremony he experienced in Peru. Seb’s journey, however, did not start with plant medicine, but rather with Kriya Yoga, where he experienced an out of body experience that made him hungry for more. We also talked about the importance of integration, and coming out of the spiritual plant medicine closet both in the office and on Linkedin. You can find Seb’s book on Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08Q2WC7NV

Season 2 Episode 5 - Julia Krakova
Julia Krakova was first recommended to me by a friend some time ago, when she saw me mention Human Design (HD) on social media. I knew very little about HD at the time, as I had started to work with the Gene Keys and learned that it had roots in that system. Months later, another friend gifted me with my very own Bodygraph, which is what your unique profile looks like in the HD world. I was so fascinated by the information that came out, that I looked up Julia and was able to record this conversation with her. In this episode, Julia shares how she got into Human Design, and then breaks down my own Bodygraph, in a very personal and intimate conversation.

Season 2 Episode 3 - Mark Bentley
Diving into the magical waters of the Gene Keys has been an amazing experience for me. As with everything I am moved by, I want to share it with others, but don’t always find the right words. It was such an honor to have Mark Bentley shed some light on this system, or transmission, as creator Richard Rudd calls the Gene Keys. As a Gene Key Ambassador, Mark is here to guide people through its intricacies. He referred to the Gene Keys as the “Programming language of our DNA,” and together we talked about Human Design, the Law of Time, and Epigenetics, among other topics.

Episode 9 with Kym of SOLTI
In this episode, I get to interview my good friend and amazing soulpreneur Kymberly Maitland-Smith over a cup of ceremonial cacao. I met Kym in Cebu City, Philippines, where she and I moved to after spending several years overseas. When we met, I still had my wellness studio, the Gassho Center for Healing Arts. Kym and I got close spending a lot of time in that space, with lots of tears, laughs and sweat! Kym eventually opened her very own healing space (and I closed mine), which is a magical place in the mountain, just thirty-five minutes from the city center. There, she hosts events such as sound healing, yoga, kirtan, cacao ceremony, to name a few. She also lives there, and creates all the products for her lifestyle business, Solti. The Tala dress, which is featured in this season’s podcast art, is her creation. It’s already an iconic piece in the Philippines, for women who are both feminine and empowered. I am convinced that it is only a matter of time till the Tala dress takes over the world! Discover Kym's wolrd here: www.soltiboutique.com Want to work with me?

Episode 8 with David Miller
David Miller is a masculine/feminine polarity teacher. I first met him through Zac Roedde, who was my very first guest on this podcast. I was intrigued by David’s description of the feminine heart as being Yang and projecting outwards, and the masculine heart being Yin or receptive. I actually spent a few days reflecting on this, as well as how David mentioned “the rape of a man’s heart”, in very illustrative words. In this episode, David shares about how he had to go through years of inner work to release and heal his co-dependency, abandonment and attachment wounds. One of the main influences for him has been the work of Mark Binet, author of Truth Cock. The work of Mark, David and Zak has generated a lot of controversy over time, as well as polarizing opinions. Here you get a chance to learn more about what all the noise is about! You can find David on Facebook, and join one of his groups with Zak Roedde.

Episode 7 with Morgan Goldberg
In this episode, relationship coach Morgan Goldberg and I share an intimate conversation about how she went from Judaism to Jesus, via Ayahuasca. Morgan and I met in a mastermind group, where part of the work focused on healing our relationship to the Divine Masculine. She tells the story of how Christ appeared during the ceremony, which turned sour, as plant ceremonies sometimes do! In a surprising turn of events, Jesus now features prominently in Morgan’s work.

Episode 6 with Michael Lauria
I have been following Michael Lauria on Facebook, enjoying his teachings on empowering men. When I shared one of his posts on my men’s group, Holistic Health for men, it generated a lot of discussion, and that’s how Michael and I started a conversation. In this episode, Michael talks about his journey, from the depths of despair to coaching men, about healing the Father Wound, about his work, Forging Excalibur, and all the symbolism around that image, taken from the legend of King Arthur. We also talk about success, pressure, and how difficult it is for men to acknowledge that they need help when they do. Finally, Michael shares some tips on how to get started to reach your own goals – his tips are also valid for women, as far as I’m concerned!

Alba talks about masculine and feminine dynamics, including Hieros Gamos, the inner sacred marriage, and how these affect our outer relationships.
