Leo Kim Ph.D I recently had the pleasure of meeting and getting to interview Leo Kim. He has a fascinating new book out called Healing the Rift – Bridging the Gap Between Science and Spirituality. Leo spent years as a scientist and biotechnology executive, and he has over 50 patents to his credit.  Much of his time was spent in the labatory studying the causes of cancer, and attempting to develop drugs to counter act the diseases he was studying.

During his work he was fortunate to have been influenced quite heavily by several of his patients to look further than the petri dish, and to explore the spiritual side of healing.  This resulted in Leo spending many years exploring the many spiritual aspects of healing, and his new book, Healing the Rift does an incredible job of weaving the elements of science and spirituality together.

Healing the Rift addresses the ultimate mystery, namely our existence.  It’s explanation has lead to the recurrent wars between deduction and faith, science and religion, and materialism verses spirituality propagating corpses of dogma littering the countless battlefields.  Leo shows how the conflict between science and spirituality can be bridged by understand the deeper meaning of 21st century scientific discoveries, which reveal that our world is a blending of mind and spirit.

I know you are going to enjoy this interview with Leo Kim and his insights into how spirituality and science compliment one another, as well as how a scientist turned spiritual advocate can provide you with a very new perspective on how healing occurs in our body, mind and spirit.  I encourage you to visit Leo’s web site as well as listen to his podcasts at HealthyLife.net radio where you can learn more about how he is changing the lives of thousands.

Paul Lemberg I have known Paul Lemberg for many years.  He is definitely an out-of-the-box thinker.  His concepts about how to market yourself and your business have always been cutting edge.  In my interview with Paul he will explain what he refers to as “Being Unreasonable.”

In Paul’s book Be Unreasonable – The Unconventional Way to Extraordinary Business Results, he states that it is about a liberation that comes from shaking off the shackles of normality and being Unreasonable in your demands on yourself and your work.   He says that extraordinary accomplishments begin with extraordinary actions.  Extraordinary in itself mean “extra” ordinary as in above the ordinary.  Being unreasonable means achieving the extraordinary by doing things beyond what people consider normal.

We have the opportunity in our interview together to discuss some of the 20 key points he makes about people who practice extraordinary action,
and the benefits they gain both personally and professionally.  In these unusual times Paul’s approach just might make sense for many of you seeking to improve your bottom line while at the same time grow your business.  He is a true master of marketing and sales and has some wonderful ideas.  I hope you enjoy our interview together, and I encourage you to visit his website by clicking here for more information about his teleclasses, books and coaching programs.

Alexander GreenIn these uncertain economic times we could all use a boost of confidence.  In my interview with Alexander Green about his new book entitled “The Secret of Shelter Island” that is exactly what you will receive.  Alex has a great perspective on how to look differently at our current economic meltdown (as the media often refer to it).  He states that we have the opportunity to reassess our entire life and re-prioritize what is important in our lives.  This is our opportunity to look inside and have a spiritual awakening to what really is valuable for us. Is it our bank accounts? Or is it the people and relationships around us that truly enrich our lives and bring us fulfillment and meaning?

Alex’s book is primarily a compilation of essays from his newsletter entitled Spiritual Wealth, a newsletter that he has been writing for a number of years. He says that it is only human to want to better our material conditions, but ironically the relentless quest for more often undermines our quality of life.  The truth is successful lives are built, not bought, and the over consumptive lifestyle ultimately limits our choices.

In my interview with Alex we explore this idea of “not-enoughness,” and what it has done to our culture and how is has depleted our souls. How this ever-persistent pursuit of more has really helped to create the challenging economic times we are experiencing.  In the continual pursuit of greater material success some of us lose important relationships, our health, our perspective, our peace of mind.  Alex says that our happiness is highly dependent on principle-centered living.  The secret to balance. Pursue your financial ambitions, but take time to appreciate your health, friends, family are the world around you.

In this interview we have the opportunity to explore how to shift our perspectives and relationship with money as well truly examine what might have greater significance for us.

I love a quote the Alex uses in the book by J. Brotherton and it says “My riches consist not in the extent of my possessions, but in the fewness of my wants.”  How true this is, and how important to remember as we navigate these interesting economic times.
Alex has written a wonderful book which will help anyone who reads it identify just what truly could be causing their financial challenges, and in so doing provides the reader with the opportunity to learn how to close the gap between their wants and needs.

Stephen Bizal D.C.I was introduced to Dr. Stephen Bizal thorough a good friend and fellow author Jon Forrest.  I had the pleasure of going up to Irvine, CA to meet with Dr. Bizal, America’s Wellness “Go-To” Guy a few months back.  Dr. Bizal has spent most of his entire life helping people transform their lives through looking at their lives in a more holistic way.  His new book entitled ” The Optimal Life” really does a masterful job of explaining the mind-body-spirit-emotional connection to health.

As Dr. Bizal explains in our interview together, your optimal life is not a mystery.  Living a pain-free, disease-free and medication-free life is possible. Most roadblocks to achieving optional health and healing are due to (1) lack of motivation (2) lack of understanding (3) lack of motivation and lack of understanding.

In Dr. Bizal’s book “The Optimal Life” what is revealed to you is that (1) the body heals itself (2) there are non physical as well at physical forces that influence our health and govern the healing process (3) humans are wholistic (4) we are each 100% responsible and accountable for our experience of life, including our experience of health.

Dr. Bizal utilizes a wonderful Wholistic Health Model to explain how dis-ease emanates.  It is probably the best explanation that I have heard in all my years of reviewing material on wellness, health and nutrition.  He explains that at the center of everything is the heart, or the energy of love. Then on the second ring emanating out from our heart center is our emotional state.  On the third ring emanating out from our heart center is our mind, which is where we hold our beliefs about our self. Then completing the model on the most outward ring is our body, which is the air, H2O, Light, nutrition, physical activity.  This wholistic model really sums it up for me, and that is our health is a direct connection to our spirit, love and how we treat ourselves and others in our life.  Our spiritual practices is so important to a healthy life, and living with vitality.

Dr. Bizal has a great quote in his book from Ramacharaka, from the book Yesudian and Haich, Yoga and Health.  It states ” Nature never wanted man to leave his body before advance old age, and if only everyone would obey the laws of nature form his childhood on, instead of constantly working against them, the death of human beings through disease in their youth or middle age would be as rare as death by violence.”

If you would like to learn about the universal principles that govern health, then I highly recommend that you read and study Dr. Bizal’s book.  You can also learn more about his wellness coaching and training by clicking here to access his website.

I hope you enjoy this brief look into the the mind of a master on wellness coaching.

Ariane de BonvoisinWhat a wonderful interview with Ariane de Bonvoisin about her new book “The First 30 Days.”  She and I explore the world of change and how we as human beings cope with the change in our lives. One thing we all know for certain is that change is ever-constant.  Things can change for the better or they can change for the worse. But it is not that things will change, but how we learn to deal with the change in our lives that matters.

Ariane spent an extensive amount of time interviewing world leaders, athletes and average people to learn the characteristics of people who deal with change successfully.  In these uncertain times what we all know that things have changed for all of us.  Ariane helps us find our change muscle and to tap into our changeless core.

She has learned that there are nine (9) principles that will assist us in learning to cope with change.  We explore the (9) nine principles of change in our interview together. I know you will be fascinated by her discoveries after having interviewed over 1,000 people and discovering their commonalities no matter what the change.

Ariane mentioned that people have been conditioned to believe certain things about change. (1) Change is hard and something to be avoided (2) Change makes me feel alone; I am the only one going through this. (3) Change takes time, energy and work. (4) Change is stressful and involves a lot of pain. In “The First 30 Days” you will learn that this might be so, but it is possible to feel differently about change by developing a new mindset about it, even if you are facing an extremely challenging change. You can come out on the other side feeling hopeful, strong, and calm with renewed optimism about life.

I know you are going to love this interview with Ariane as we explore change and how to navigate it.  Remember the old saying what we resist persists, and this is certainly so about change.  If you would like to learn more about Ariane de Bonvoisin and her book, coaching and workshops please visit her website for more information.
