Being present with Maren Wilkeshuis
Maren Wilkeshuis shares texts and videos on social media and I’m a fan. Her posts stick out. They are raw, vulnerable and courageous. We never met before and this podcast episode is our very first conversation.
We talked about »casual« topics such as:
• Being a fierce bitch and aligning with love from within.
• The impulse to smack someone and building bridges of trust.
• A tiny virus infiltrating our fragile idea of security.
• Exposing the bullshit and a much needed system-shock to wake us up.
• A greater wisdom at play and coaching without preparation.
Thank you, it has been a pleasure!
Becoming a Coach
We’re back after a longer break to close out the second season with a gem! This time we swapped roles and I had the pleasure to interview Alma. About half way into her Coach Training Program with me she’s sharing her experiences. What were the most successful moments as a coach trainee and what were the worst? What kind of coach do you want to be? And why in the world did you start out on this journey? Enjoy some nice behind the scenes material right on time before registration for the next Coach Training Class starts!
Interview with Mathias
I told her that I’m an open book… that was a mistake! For this special episode Alma asked me anything she wanted to know and she wanted to know a lot. What’s my greatest fear? What’s the most difficult obstacle that I’ve overcome in my life? If someone told me that I’m to young to coach him – what do I reply? To keep it crisp and concise we cut our joyful conversation down to 30 minutes. Wanna snack on it? Go ahead!
10 ways out of confusion
Sometimes we find ourselves in a state of confusion and all we want is to snap out of it. But where to find that sweet feeling of clarity that has gone missing? On the way to this episode of our Podcast we got confused as well. Great! It gave us the chance to explore 10 different ways out of confusion. We thought that’s dead on »Bullshit-Free Living« and definitely worth sharing with you guys. Enjoy!
Show up and own it
Authentic people are attractive. I feel drawn to these people and for some reason they seem to be polarizing. They are not everybody’s darling. Furthermore, authenticity seems to be effortless and natural. In fact it drains a lot of energy trying to fit in and making it right for the people around you. Showing up as you are and owning it is the easy way. What a great discovery! Follow us on this exploration…
Bad habits | Good intentions
We get drunk, smoke, eat too much sugar, stay up late, watch porn and we do all that for a good reason! What if it’s true and behind every bad habit lies a good intention? In this episode we explore exactly that. Why are we having these bad habits? How can we stop beating ourselves up for that? Is it possible to develop good habits instead? Follow us in Episode 15!
Unleash your full potential
»Unleashing your full potential« is a buzzword these days and surprisingly we find that it is NOT about learning a new method or adding more knowledge to your system. In this episode we explore the possibility that your full potential is right here – in the empty space within you waiting to be (re-)discovered. A painting is manifestation and the empty canvas is pure potential. A song is manifestation and the silence is pure potential. Find out how all of this applies to your everyday-life.
Empathy on steroids
Being an empath is slightly different from »empathy«. In fact it’s like empathy on steroids. We dig a little bit deeper into what it means to have the sensitivity of being an empath, what the challenges are and of course: the benefits. This is a great chance to see the boundaries between individuals melting away into a more connected society. Enjoy!
Resistance to what is
In this episode we want to share a few stories on resistance with you. There are so many things that we successfully resisted in life – especially those things that are absolutely inevitable once they’ve happened: being injured, sudden change of weather, delayed trains… sounds familiar to you? Most of the time it’s not the situation itself that causes suffering but the resistance that we keep up against it. »Just accept it« is easier said than done but it might still be the key.
Perfectionism to cover self-doubt
Welcome to Season 2 of our Podcast for Bullshit-Free Living! After a little break we’re back! A little more honest. A little more personal. A little more real. In our first episode we discuss how perfectionism can be a defense mechanism to cover up self-doubt. We also discuss how perfectionism can be a great asset. We touch on perfectionism in relation to ambition and why aiming for greatness is actually great as long as you’re detached from the outcome. Enjoy!
