Tough Talks - E067 - Are You Spiritually Malnourished. with dr. Daniel Harner

TOUGH TALKS: Are You Spiritually Malnourished? Dr. Daniel Harner

Dr. Daniel Harner is a former traditional Psychotherapist who has shifted to what he refers to as Psycho-Spiritual Mentoring. A couple of the things I love about Daniel is his genius and his ability to dumb it down for us. He even acknowledges that a huge part of his work is to make conversations about "Spiritual Nourishment" accessible and understandable for 5 years olds. Daniel is that refreshing combination of deep as hell and cool as hell. He's dropping wisdom bombs left and right over here on the function of suffering and he even teaches us that "the Devil is walking with us at all times" and how that's a great thing!

TOUGH TALKS: About Face Yourself. with Jason Flores

While on Holiday in Iceland in 2016, a blood vessel in Jason's brain ruptured and almost killed him. It did partially paralyze him, but it sure as hell didn't stop him from creating a life of service as a result of it.

From pro-golfer to surf instructor to 8 year stint in the Coast Guard and now to professional Conscious Musician - he trusts the organizing intelligence inherent within his passions. Meet Ryan Perez. (He even does a little improv for us on his ukelele at the end!)

She was diagnosed with cancer at age 14 and refers to it as a blessing. And it sure didn't happen "to her." It didn't even happen "for her." It happened "AS her." She'll explain.
