The Thrill of Not Knowing

June 16, 2018 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

“What is your friend: the things you know, or the things you don’t know?” Jordan Peterson

I’m sure you’ve heard it said that “the older you get you realize the less you know.”

Well, I’m not so certain I agree with that. I’ve found that the older I get the more I know, but… there is a lot less I know “for sure” and still a whole lot more that I will never know. Discovery has become, for me, one of life’s greatest attributes. I am insatiably curious and I find myself in a quest to explore and discover.

#76 Elena Perella: Sentidu–Overcoming Your Past

June 12, 2018 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

Show Notes

Today we are honored to have with us from Sardinia, Italy Elena Perella, founder of Sentidu, which is an original life coaching process she developed after years of study and personal experience.

Elena says that since she was a child she has been very sensitive to other people’s suffering, which awakened an interest in human behavior, that later became a real passion.

She received a Master’s degree from The Netherlands, in Latin American Studies with a focus on Literature and Cultural Anthropology. Her study helped her to better understand the reasons and dynamics that cause people to act as they do.

Her work in international environments reinforced her natural openness to people from diverse backgrounds and beliefs, and fine-tune her abilities to understand people’s emotions and be receptive to them.

Elena then decided to move back to Sardinia, Italy, where she went on to further shape her own business, Sentidu Life Coaching.

To wrap up this introduction I’d like to read Elena’s description of her work:

“In creating Sentidu my life experiences were fundamental because it is from those experiences that I relate to my clients. I suffered from a severe depression, eating disorders and I was also a victim of domestic abuse. By coaching myself throughout them, I changed my life and felt inspired to support people who are ready and eager to learn about themselves.”

With that said let’s move on to Elena Perella.

The Complexity of Conflict

June 9, 2018 by Charlie Hedges − 0 Comments

For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument, and debate. Margaret Heffernan

I am, right this minute, in the middle of a very serious conflict with a major authority of another country. I am frustrated and perplexed. It consumes most of every hour (waking or sleeping) so I decided to write on it. (Sorry I can’t offer details—it would require pages.)

So, on to the complexity of conflict…

#75 Mike Olsen: From Money to Meaning

June 5, 2018 by Charlie Hedges − 2 Comments

Show Notes 

Today we are going to discuss a newer movement that I am seeing in our society today, especially with Millennials and, oddly enough, retiring Baby Boomers. I’m observing that movement as one going from the American ideal of Making Money to one that is more concerned with Making a Difference. I’m calling this show, From Money to Meaning.

My guest today is Mike Olsen. Mike was a successful Civil/Structural Engineer and Project Lead at an engineering firm when he decided earlier this year to accept to a full time role as Operations Manager of the non-profit, Wells of Life. This new job requires ten hours each day in addition to work on the weekends. And he did this all for a significant reduction in salary.

So I wonder? what in the world drives the Mike Olsen’s of the world to make such a decision

Listen in on the show to discover some fascinating alternative lifestyle choices.

#74 Charlie and Paul: Dropping Out

May 29, 2018 by Charlie Hedges − 1 Comments

Show Notes 

For the last three shows I have attempted to discover the basic tenets of atheism, theism and a form of Hallucinogenic Spirituality, all in an effort to understand how people approach their inner and outer lives.

After the three shows aired Paul asked a handful of people their impressions of the show. The overwhelming response was: we just don’t really care at all about religion or politics, both are so messed up.

So Paul and I at the last minute decided to take on this subject, no notes, no plan. Except: to talk about why so many people are not interested in voting, declaring party affiliation and even more important the subject of God.

The result was a fascinating discussion. I hope you enjoy.
