On Inducing Inspiration w/ Dr. Brad Elliott Stone

May 27, 2021

Hangin' with Brad is like watching a stellar documentary on the History channel. I always leave having learned SO much while being richly entertained in the process.  

.

From mystery cults in Ancient Egypt to Socrates' famous last words;  from Saint Teresa of Avilla to the keys of Stevie Wonder’s piano, philosopher, musician, professor and author, Dr. Brad Elliott Stone takes us through space and time in order to teach us how to induce inspiration when we feel the furthest thing from inspired. If you are in the process of creating anything like a book, a song, homeschool curriculum or a treehouse for your kids, you're gonna want to hang out with Brad for a bit. Trust me, your creative process will be *greatly* enhanced. Read below for more on Brad, and keep readin' for a sneak-peek into the show. 

.

Brad Elliott Stone is Professor of Philosophy and Associate Dean of the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts at Loyola Marymount University. His research areas are contemporary continental philosophy (especially Heidegger and Foucault), American philosophy, and contemporary Spanish philosophy. He is co-author (with Jacob Goodson) of Introducing Prophetic Pragmatism (Lexington).

What does Beethoven teach us about transmuting our pain into art that serves our own healing journey and the journeys of others?

Why does the title of a book or article have to come first before he writes anything else?

.

Does 'Bridge Under Troubled Water" and ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ belong in sanctuaries? 

.

What can all of us, regardless of race, learn from Cornell West’s teachings on the ‘tragic, comic hope’ of the black church?

On The Christian Belief That’s Keeping You From Your Goals

On The Christian Belief That’s Keeping You From Your Goals

May 20, 2021

The other day a woman got angry with me when I complimented her. She viewed it as a near insult that I complimented her as opposed to giving all credit to God. What's this about? What's at the root of this type of skewed response from Christians? I believe that I know the root cause of moments like these and it all stems from 1 VERY POPULAR Christian belief. Yep, There's 1 Christian Belief (whether conscious or not) that's keeping you from your goals, and we're going to take a good hard look at this and equip you to move away from its limiting belief so that you can serve others with your talents with more peace and productivity and joy.

How is intuition different from fear? How can you feel it ?

 

Why does Dana challenge herself to, “Keep promises not a schedule, and let my energy of that dictates my accomplishments”? 

 

How did they redefine stuck when Dana and Meg talk about leaving the ministry?

 

How does homeschooling her 9 kids make her a stronger coach?

 

What potentially hurtful moment with her husband turned romantic?

 

What are the 2 things that coaching is really about? 

 

When did she stop viewing people as broken? What caused this?

 

How did she stop being “so arrogant”? 

 

What epic comeback did she have for a person who made a curt comment about her being pregnant with her ninth kid on a Network marketing company work trip? 

 

What is one step to take to be aligned? 

 

How is she different as a coach from a minister? Are her mindset and values different now too?

A Cuomo Case Study: How To Finally Feel Like You Are Enough

May 6, 2021

What can Rivers Cuomo of 'Weezer' reveal to us about finally feeling 'enough' when we show up with loving curiosity for ourselves and him? 

.

I love me some Weezer and since my guitar teacher said 'Say it Ain't So' was too difficult to be my first song to learn power chords to, I'm doing a podcast episode around it! ;) We explore River's personal and professional journey through these 3 questions in hopes of learning how to create and serve from a place as if we have nothing to prove or defend, because you don't. Here are the questions that we'll be with:

.

1. IS THERE A LIMIT TO HOW GOOD YOU CAN STAND IT?

2. CAN YOU FINALLY FEEL LIKE ENOUGH WHEN YOU LOVE THE PART OF YOU THAT FEELS THE FURTHEST THING FROM?

3. IS THERE MORE POWER IN THE TORTURED ARTIST WHEN THE TORTURE IS PAST TENSE?
