In this two-parter I've been diving into the astrology of the moment, and how those energies are going to be reflected in our lives and the world at large.

Something I like to do for the last show of the year on this podcast is give you a round up of my fave books from the past year. If you get my weekly Museletter you'll know I'm all about them books, and from the replies I get from some of you lovely people, I know that you're also total bookworms. So 2020 was a great year for reading, many of us ha…
 
Today’s episode is an ode to Saturn. Yes, the planet Saturn. Or more specifically, the god, the archetype, the spirit that the planet Saturn represents. One for the astrologically inclined or at least the astro curious. Start with a bit about my personal history with Saturn, and move into some lessons I’ve learned from Saturn that will hopefully be…

It’s been a while since I’ve spoken about goals and planning and productivity, but it is something that I get asked about a lot – you know, how do you get stuff done. It seems to be something that many of us will be thinking about as we speed toward the end of 2020 (at last)… 2020 was an indescribably hard year for so many people, and I imagine it …
 
On today's show, I'm having a conversation with Sarah Santacroce, one of my most loved and regular guests, to talk about the Gentle Business Revolution. What is this revolution you ask?

This is a bit of a wildcard episode, which I’ve been thinking about doing for a long time, but only now have I got my sh*t together (i.e. research) and have made it into a thing. We spoke about myth recently, and the value of myth in our every day lives, whether it’s giving us courage and self-belief to take on life’s obstacles, to giving us a grea…
 
Today I’d like to talk about time. It’s time to talk about time. Why time? 3 of the biggest, most frequent gripes I hear from my coaching clients who are struggling for various reasons to create and get their creations out into the world, are related to time: 1. I don’t have enough time 2. I’m not there yet 3. I’m stuck In this episode of the Creat…

Today’s podcast guest is someone who has had a very significant impact on my life over the past year or so, ever since I had the pleasure of moderating meditation classes he runs on the app Wellness Coach.

Have you fallen off the "creative horse"? Have you found yourself prioritising other activities, or maybe you had a creative flop and feel a bit discouraged? Or maybe you've simply lost your mojo, and you lack inspiration to move forward? Falling off the creative horse is all part of the journey, and this episode is for anyone who is eager to get b…
 
This episode is titled something like 5 tips for embracing your inner weird, and creating great work but the real title, the secret title is actually: 5 Lessons From a 6 ft 3.5” Rabbit. So this rabbit I mentioned goes by the name of Harvey, and he is a pooka. (I’m not going to go into it in the episode but you should totally google what is a Pooka …
 
On today's show, I'm having a conversation with Connor Frost, a Musician and Educator, hailing from just outside New York City. He has toured extensively both as a solo act and with his band, Dizzy Bats, throughout the US, as well as internationally, and has self-released seven albums over the last decade. We talk about the fear of taking first ste…
 
This picks up on the thread I started in the recent episode on People Pleasing, when I mentioned our habit to people please stems from our need to bolster our self-esteem, and promised an episode focussing more on that. Since reading the book, "Birth and Death of Meaning" by Ernest Becker, I have a lot of new ideas about self-esteem and about “fitt…

According to the good ol Merriam-Webster: “A ritual is a sequence of activities involving gestures, words, actions, or objects, performed in a sequestered place and according to a set sequence.” Whatever it is, ritual can be seen in a wide variety of symbolic behaviours and are incredibly common regardless of where - or when - you are on the earth.…
 
On today's show, I'm having a conversation with Peter Limberg, creator of the Stoa, an online space, "where we can gather and talk about what matters most right now, at the razor’s edge." I absolutely loved having this opportunity to talk to Peter about what it means to live truthfully, facing the unknowingness, and - a pet topic of mine - the Daim…
 
In this week's episode of the Creative Introvert, I'm exploring my changing definition of WHY, but also: what happens when your WHY (reason to do/be whatever it is you do/are) needs to change. What happens when thought you had a WHY and it’s sort of... stopped working? POWERED BY PATREON This podcast is made possible only by means of my generous su…
 
Are you a "people pleaser"? This is something that I hear creative introverts say a LOT about themselves, and I thought it was time to tackle this in today's episode. I cover why people pleasing isn't necessarily a bad thing, as well as what happens when it gets out of control - and what to try in order to remedy that. POWERED BY PATREON This podca…

You might have heard of the concept of a Muse before. Even if you haven’t considered it in the way I’ll speak of it today, you’ll have said it: amusement, bemused, museum, music I argue it’s more than just mere entertainment - we’re speaking about something that captivates us - like a great work of art in a museum or the first time you heard your f…
 
Today's podcast guest, Azhelle Wade, has worked in the toy industry for over 10 years with companies like Toys R Us, Horizon Group USA, and now Creative Kids, as the VP of Brand and Product.

This episode of The Creative Introvert has come about from my personal, recent experience with "re-branding" (I also cover why I'm so averse to that word) and the tips I have for you, if you're feeling like you have outgrown your current "brand" and want to give it a refresh. I've also made a handy dandy little pdf guide to guide you through the st…
 
This is a bit of a different episode of the Creative Introvert… I’m going to share the recording of my recent monthly astrology forecast meetups with you. Already I can here many of you skipping this podcast, I know not everyone will be into this – I’m sharing it for those who are and for those who are maybe a bit astro-curious… I know before I got…
 
We need to discern what works from what doesn’t, what we’re going for and whether or not what we’ve done hits the mark. It’s built into our genetic code or something. We are discriminating creatures, all living beings are - and when we fail, it can mean the difference between life and death. Naturally it’s a big deal to us. But "bad" judgement is *…
 
Today I'm talking with Scott Stroud about how we can use our imagination to unlock our creativity, find meaning and basically feel like we can take on the world.

“Loneliness is as much a reality of life as night and rain and thunder, and it can be lived creatively, as any other experience. So I say, let there be loneliness, for where there is loneliness there is also love, and where there is suffering, there also is joy.” ~ Clark Moustakas In today's episode I'm going to be taking a deeper dive into the sub…
 
Why am I talking about dragons? Well... these fearsome creatures have become quite a dominant part of my inner landscape over the past year or so, and I think it's high time they get some recognition through my creative work. I also feel there's a lot we can learn from our dragon friends, from coping with anxiety to finding your buried creative tre…
 
I’ve been thinking a LOT about calling. What we’re destined for. This idea of a path that we’re meant to walk and if we just figure out what that is, we’ll be happy. My problem is, that I - and maybe you too - had been convinced that our calling is something like: shaping the universe around us to meet our desires. Oh, and that when it’s shaped jus…
 
Today I’m tackling a topic I’ve been musing over for some time now. Maybe even years at this point. I’ve also had people - clients, listeners of the podcast, people in the League - all asking about this, and quite frankly I find myself asking questions about it regularly too. The mysterious topic is: intuition. Now, like with all of these episodes,…
 
Studies have shown that people would rather definitely get an electric shock now than maybe be shocked later, and show greater nervous-system activation when waiting for an unpredictable shock (or other unpleasant stimulus) than an expected one. I think we can all agree that uncertainty is something we all want to avoid, and we can go to extreme le…

I'm also going to share with you a proce…

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” ~ Dr. Seuss That's the quote that prompted today's episode of the Creative Introvert...

Today I have Karen Curry Parker on to talk about Human Design, a system you may have heard of before. I found Karen's work when trying to decipher the mysterious chart that had been generated (you can get yours here) and was so grateful for her way of explaining things. We talk about the five different types that are described in Human Design, the …
 
One of the biggest challenges creative introverts face, at least the ones I encounter is, self doubt. And this is what I'm seeing as the root cause as well as the fuel for what I'm calling "The Cycle of Stuckness." If you feel stuck in any way on your creative path, this episode is for you!

Today I’m interviewing my co-host on my other podcast, The Seeker and the Skeptic, the marvellous Rebecca Fox.

On today’s show I’ve got Claire Summers here who is a fellow digital nomad and a fellow Brit and I knew I had to get her on after learning so much from her blog, her books and as I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my year of travel, I thought it would be wise to get a pro in to talk more in depth about life on the road. We discuss… • How Cl…

Mark Rogers is a Portland-based artist whose work I've been obsessed with for quite some time. I was keen to chat to Mark because I was so curious about his creative process (when you see his work you'll understand why!) and the journey he's been on in becoming a professional artist. We discuss: • Using our imagination as “grown ups” • Thought form…
 
What is creativity anyway? What does it mean to create, to be creative? Is it something we all have? Can we all do it? Can we all be it? And if so, can we become more creative? Is there some kind of definitive measuring stick for creativity? Now that’s the INTJ in me speaking, but really I think it’s a great starting point for a juicy episode of th…
