This week I speak with Gilbert Bates, multiple author and practitioner of Janovian Primal Therapy - a highly effective approach for resolving early trauma and leading a rich and love-filled life.Following a breakdown at age 46, Gilbert sought help by traditional psychiatric means. He was told he'd have to be on medication for the rest of his life. After experimenting with shamanistic practices, Gil realised that medication blocks the flow of traumatic memories from coming to conscious awareness, serving to keep his feelings down. In contrast, he discovered that Janovian Primal Therapy gets underneath the brain's inbuilt defences to allow us to experience painful memories for what they are and to heal from them. Today he's sharing the results of his incredible journey.We talk:
Curing his depression by 90%
Feeling love for the first time in his 70s
The fatal flaw in the human psyche and how to resolve it
Reconnecting with our animal nature
Resolving our primal pain and letting the love flow

Through decades of building on his father's legacy, Brent has learned that no matter what incentives you offer, employees will only truly listen to a manager that leads from the heart. After a cardiac scare in 2006 and the loss of his mother a decade later, Brent realised he needed to change how he led. Some introspection led him to a purpose-oriented and people-first approach. We talk:
Developing a personal 'Why' and 'How'

This week I swing out with Andrew Genovese, a Dimensional Breathwork teacher/facilitator, sacred space holder, plant medicine guide, visionary, and New Earth Ambassador.
On his journey to heal his traumas, Andrew found breathwork and now uses it to tap into the central nervous system to calm the mind and purify the body. This work allows us to let go of our physical body and permits the subconscious and unconscious mind to bring to the surface whatever is ready for us to process and release fully.
He has now become an ambassador for a technology he claims to be as powerful as breathwork: reduction/oxidation or redox. Redox signaling molecules are produced within every cell in your body and act as cellular messengers or activators. These molecules are critical in keeping oxidation in check and preventing cellular damage. The company he represents claims to have created a bottled form of these molecules.We talk:
How Andrew cured a chronic, painful condition through breathwork alone
Why the lack of ‘chi’ is at the root of ill health
The Redox breakthrough 
The ending of the dark age of the Kali Yuga
