All year I've been hearing the name Philip McKernan from people I really admire and respect like former podcast guests Giovanni Marsico and Samantha Skelly, so when his team reached out to us about having him on the podcast I was an instant, "Hell yes!" Philip believes the path to a happy and fulfilling life is found through the meaning we derive in life through the WORK we do, our relationship to OTHERS and the most important relationship of all, the one with ones SELF. In this interview we jam on all of that, along with other interesting stuff like navigating fear, uncertainty and limitations, the relationship between judgement and compassion, the purpose of pain, how anger keeps us from accessing our intuition and so much more. It's one of those conversations I didn't want to come to an end. You'll probably want to listen more than once. Enjoy!

It's rare that my enthusiasm reads as quietness, but that's what you're going to find in this interview, wild ones.

This interview with Amber Krzys can only be described as juicy and ripe because there is SO MUCH to be squeezed out of it. We took a deep dive into deconstructing and reconstructing the programming and conditioning of our culture and society. We get into vulnerability - real vulnerability - not that forced kind that is so rampant in the self-help world these days. We geek out on our journeys and some of the embarrassing stops along the way - and Amber describes what she calls, "creating mutant versions of ourselves." There's TONS of gems in this one, listen closely!
