I have known Yasmeen for years as a friend and a healer. This podcast is a reflection of her offering the gifts of healing, awareness, and consciousness to her audience which I predict will continue to grow. These conversations feature some of the most talented and dedicated practitioners in the field energy, healing, and conscious awareness, all of whom bring a sincere desire to help us all navigate this odd and challenging time in our history. Her content is relevant, her guests are wonderful and talented agents of positive change, and I look forward to seeing what talent and content she'll bring to us in the future. I would recommend Gateways to anyone interested in truly exploring themselves and the world we live in. Hats off Yasmeen. Very well done. - Michael

The pursuit of vocation and finding purpose in life with Parker Palmer 

In today’s episode, we’ll be speaking with Parker Palmer, a writer, speaker, activist, and founder and Senior Partner Emeritus of the Center for Courage & Renewal. He has reached millions worldwide via his ten books, including the best-selling Healing the Heart of Democracy, Let Your Life Speak, The Courage to Teach, and A Hidden Wholeness. His latest bestseller is On the Brink of Everything: Grace, Gravity and Getting Old (2018). Palmer holds a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California at Berkeley, and 13 honorary doctorates. In 1998, the Leadership Project, a national survey of 10,000 educators, named him one of the 30 “most influential senior leaders” in higher education and one of the 10 key “agenda-setters” of the past decade. I first learned about Parker Palmer through Krista Tippet, as I was a part of the On-Being weekend at 1440 Multiversity many years ago, and was moved by his books. -------- We talk about the following and so much more: ✅ His book, “Let your life speak” and what he means by the phrase: "living the life that wants to live in me." ✅ How he made the decision to create his own path as a teacher and a leader ✅ How he knew that he was not going to go down the conventional road ✅ “Age itself,” he says, “is no excuse to wade in the shallows. It's a reason to dive deep and take creative risks.” ✅ How he decided to take creative risks ✅ In his book, Let Your Life Speak, he talks about how leaders can cast both shadow and light, and a few shadows are: insecurity about identity and worth, and the belief that the universe is a hostile battleground. ✅ His time with the Quakers and how it shaped him ✅ How his journey through the depths of depression shapes his life You can learn more about Parker Palmer here: https://couragerenewal.org/wpccr/parker/ Please tag us and tell us what you loved!

The power of play and how to heal the trauma of the body  

In today’s episode, I speak with Brett Fleisher, a life long pursuer of the expressive arts and authentic expression. Brett has traveled down many paths; as an actor, writer, musician, filmmaker, youth educator, somatic and reiki practitioner. After many years of feeling out of balance physically, emotionally and mentally, Brett discovered the power of somatic release and began to heal through old traumas that were causing him lifelong pain and discomfort. He instantly resonated with this approach to integrating the mind, body and belief systems and began studying the Point Holding Process and Somatic Release Technique with his beloved teachers Catalina Ureta and Judith Johnson. Brett founded The Yummy Heart in the fall of 2018 and loves working one on one with people to help guide them back into their bodies, as well as educating people on understanding the function of trauma through workshops and community gatherings. In addition to his work with The Yummy Heart, Brett is a long standing facilitator with Sacred Sons and is currently a lead mentor of the Sacred Sonz Youth Program. We dive into the following and so much more: ✅ What it means to play as an adult ✅ What somatic embodiment work is , and why he decided to invest in this methodology in his practice ✅ What the Yummy Heart organization, why did you create it, and why did you choose that name? ✅ What Sacred Suns is , and why he decided to join this organization -- and how he’s become a mentor for youth ✅ What it means to show up as a conscious and embodied male in your words ✅ Some of the trends he has seen when working with young men You can find Brett at https://www.theyummyheart.com/ https://www.instagram.com/thephoenixassembly/ https://www.sacredsons.com/ https://beheadedforgreatness.com/ Please tag us and tell us what you loved!

The roots of consciousness and the search for answers to the beyond with Jeffrey Mishlove 

Jeffrey Mishlove is the New Thinking Allowed host, author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "Parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university which was at the University of California, Berkeley, 1980. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series, and is also past-president of the Intuition Network. This man is a legend in the world of consciousness and when I interviewed a few of my previous guests on Gateways, a number of them mentioned his name time and time again. When I went down the New Thinking Allowed rabbit hole, I was surprised to see who he had interviewed (from Ram Dass, and Terrance McKenna to name a few) and also the way he interviewed his audience, often diving into a diverse set of topics in a deep and thoughtful way. We talk about the following and much more: ✅ Some major themes that have emerged over the years in the world of psychic phenomenon ✅ Why he says there are many “flowers of consciousness”, but not enough written about the roots of consciousness ✅ What role do indigenous cultures play in the modern world today ✅ What the Egyptian healing temples are ✅ What his perspective is on the future of humanity and consciousness ✅ The “PK man” and some of his research and discoveries This man is truly a legend.
