Things Worth Considering

Health & Wellness Podcasts

This is a show about connections. Connections to your self, your spirit, your feelings and your story. One of the most powerful healing tools we have is our connections. Connect to your intuition and explore your AHA moments. Discover how we get in our own way and how we can overcome obstacles to move on. How we think, what we think, what we believe, and our attitudes define how we experience our life. The fascinating idea that we shape our reality to what we believe it should be, in our minds. How we connect to our families, our aging family members and slowly we become caregivers, not caretakers. Embracing the reality of aging, not into senior citizens but living the archetypal Elder, the Wise One. Living the Spiritual idea of being of service but not being someone’s servant. As we explore the many roads of the human journey with our guests, we will connect to each other by embracing many of the mysteries of life and there we arrive at things worth considering.

Spirit Chaser

6/10/2021
Have you experienced what is sometimes called, a spiritual visitation - the perception that something or someone is attempting to communicate with you from beyond the normal physical world? There are those who claim to have seen apparitions of an otherworldly nature, while others have perceived clear and distinct voices that seem to come from nowhere in particular. While such encounters in waking life can be perplexing enough, these can also powerfully arise within dream states, particularly...

Self-Sabotage

6/3/2021
Have you ever found yourself getting close to a goal, they called you in for the interview and with anticipation increasing, you realize you forget to submit a required document? The job went to someone else. Or you are out on a date, it has been a while and you gradually have steered the conversation to your talking most of the evening about your ex-partner and your break-up. You wanted to explain your side of the story and that you are a good guy. Your date very politely at the end of the...

Influence of Planetary Energies

5/27/2021
We have been talking about the changes people have made while in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Changing jobs, leaving the city and moving to the small towns and rural areas. Work from home has opened up a lot of eyes to the possibilities of life changes that may be possible. This episode we are talking to someone who decided to use the lock down time and pursue a passion of hers and move towards turning her studies into a career. The time gave her the freedom to study via workshops, a...

Looking for a New Normal! Part 2

5/20/2021
As we approach the eventual stabilization of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we dare not say the end, we all are being presented with possibilities that many, if not most people, may not be considering. For the majority, we have, perhaps this only one-time in our lifetime opportunity to completely change our life. For many, if they had a job or were able to stay employed during the pandemic, off-site at home office became the norm. Is this your new normal? Experts are predicting that when the...

Looking for a New Normal.

5/13/2021
What is a new normal? What will it look like? Is our imposed lock down a new normal? It may be new but not normal. Plodding along we appear to be inching our way to the downward slope of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many are still in some sort of lock down and we are all in anticipation, that just maybe we will be able to burst out of our imposed isolation and live life differently than the last year and a half. The reference to a new normal has crept into our language but what is a this new...

Wild Edibles

5/6/2021
We all know that shopping for food, especially fresh produce, at our local supermarkets does not yield us with the highest quality edibles. In most instances the food has been shipped to us from the far corners of the planet but from the moment they were picked their nutritional value begins to decline. Now imagine that our planetary food supply was to somehow be jeopardized, and the things we normally buy become scarcer. How could that happen? There are many reasons like politics,...

Ready for Racial Therapy Session #2

4/29/2021
Two weeks ago, Jennifer Drummond was on the show and after one session of Racial Therapy, we asked her if we could go on to session #2 of therapy. More than happy to help us keep this very important subject out there and being discussed. We all like to believe we are not racist, but it is so very difficult to escape what we heard and saw while growing up. Our language, our humour, our unconscious sense of privilege are all markers of how racism surfaces without awareness. This edition goes a...

Sonic Geometry

4/22/2021
Imagine discovering a significant but previously unknown connection between geometry and harmonics. Where geometric shapes and forms provide the information needed to build numerically perfect major chords, the most melodic form of music. By extrapolation, this groundbreaking research offers a certain type of proof that our geometric universe is a symphonic system functioning in literal harmony with itself. It also takes us back to a moment in time when an elegant “Base-60” math system...

Ready for Racial Therapy?

4/15/2021
As much as most of us are so over it, the Covid-19 Pandemic has been instrumental in bringing to the surface issues in our world that would best have been dealt with a couple hundred years ago. The treatment of the senior most members of our society living in long term care facilities, make up almost two-thirds of the deaths in Canada. Arising with our treatment of the aged, is a mounting awareness of systemic racism throughout all levels of government, corporations, housing and education....

Nutrition Outside the Box

4/8/2021
Eating well and eating properly can be an exercise in futility at times. We have all read the articles, maybe taken a course or two and learned what is good for us, and what foods to eat to get the good stuff. Problem: Lots of the foods suggested by the experts, in order for us to be at optimal physical health, we may not like. Not all people like the same foods and definitely not all food suggested by nutritionists is likeable. Many dietitians and nutritionists are very knowledgeable but...

Hard-Wired

4/1/2021
No one has ever disagreed, there are no studies that contradict the fact that humans are hard wired to connect. Hard wired to connect to each other, but also our pets, like cats and dogs and horses. A child begins to cry when the mother leaves the room and stops upon her return. If we are Hard Wired to connect then why do so many people have such difficulties in forming and maintaining satisfying relationships. Not just marriage but even friendships and with co-workers. Growing up we may...

Leading With the Heart

3/25/2021
Throughout our journey, our minds have been instilled with ideas of finding the right teacher, guru, rabbi or priest who knew the answers to all of our questions. As we gained knowledge, perhaps we became such a teacher. An endless cycling of archetypal learning, looking outward toward the horizon for an answer to a yet unspoken question. Can we risk stopping that outward gaze? Will we put the same trust invested in others as our guides into something other than another human? Could we put...

The Lens Connects

3/18/2021
We all ponder, some even struggle, for just an inkling, of what could possibly be our purpose? What if it isn’t a straight line to such awareness? Sometimes we travel along only to find a detour that takes us to one place and circles us back around to rejoin from our point of detour. Sounds confusing? Possibly, but who said it would be a straight-line? Meet Maylynn Quan, born in Trinidad and Tobago, and now Canadian-based, as she zigzags her way, throughout Europe and north Africa, to a...

Why is Self-Care so hard?

3/4/2021
Do you become irate when people treat you badly, or they show you little respect? Furious when someone says they will do something for you and then never a word is said about it or they disappear. They’ll meet you at a certain time and place, and then you are left standing, pacing, waiting for them to show up? Surely the paradox is not lost, if people treated us this way, we would banish most to another planet, but this is how we actually treat our self and then some. The hardest thing we...

How do we create connections with people? The Covid – 19 pandemic is the antithesis of connections. Social isolation and distancing has turned friendships, even those close by, into long distance relationships. Maybe more specifically we have become the ‘Zoom’ people. From Boomers to Zoomers. For many it has been very difficult to be cut-off from social exposure to our friends. It is demanding of us to explore new ways of being in touch and feeling connected. Our friendships are important,...

Let’s Create Some Health

From edibles to medicinal, mushrooms have been an important part of the Human diet for millennia, globally. The medical science communities, whether traditional or alternative, have a lot more interest in them than just as a dietary adjunct. Large research projects are being done in 2 key areas, one is in the cancer field and the other is in mental health. Interestingly, there is already a large amount of data about mushrooms and mental health, but studies were interrupted by the war on...
