In this remarkable episode, I invite you to join me on a transformative journey as we dive into the six core elements that have consistently emerged in these conversations, offering a roadmap for sparking your own creativity fuelled life transformation. Through insightful clips from past episodes and my personal reflections, we'll navigate these elements with intention, empowering you to unleash your true creative essence, and live the highest and best version of yourself

We'll explore how each of these six elements—uncovered through conversations with our exceptional guests—holds the key to unglitching your life and humanity as a whole.

Two years ago, I went on a walk and heard a voice telling me it was time to start a podcast. At that point, I had no idea what I would talk about or if I even had the skills to host a podcast. Editing and getting it out into the world? That was a whole other challenge I had to conquer. But here we are today among the top 1% of podcasts worldwide. 

There's no doubt in my mind that this is my life's work, that I am here to support the reunion between humans and their creativity. It's a calling I can't ignore. I consider it an honour to do this work. I'm eternally grateful to you, the listeners and to our first 42 incredible guests, trailblazers in their creative fields who have generously shared their time, wisdom, and love with us. Together, we have shared laughter, tears, and those lightbulb moments that have forever transformed us.

It's as if they have painted a constellation of insights that guide us on how to access, activate, and trust our creativity. In this episode I identify the 6 phases of creative transformation that repeat themselves over and over again in my conversations with these creative geniuses, I pull some of the most powerful moments and insights from past episodes and share my own reflections.
