The Mosaic Podcast

Daniel Bruce Levin

I have had the incredible opportunity to be friends with some of the richest people in the world and the grace to sit on streets corner with the poorest of the poor and what I have seen is that everyone wants the same thing. It doesn’t matter how much money they have, what religion they practice, the color their skin, or what border they live behind, everyone I have met wants to be loved and accepted, listened to and heard and acknowledged and validated.

The Mosaic Podcast gives voice to those who have no voice and to those who are using their voice to uplift humanity. You will be moved beyond words to experience a feeling in your heart, that will leave you knowing nothing is as it seems.

She is a Tedx speaker, the creator of the One-Woman Show, The Rebel Road… Connecting the Dots from What Was to What Is and  As an ‘Example’ for a New World Experience of Aliveness, she advocates for the Visionary and Mystic embodied within each person, while engaging individuals in the embrace of their darkest depths so to uncover their brilliance of Light. the first time i met her, i asked her to share her experience of a journey she took as i was about to set out on a trip to speak to those no one speaks to and listen to those no one listens to. here is the advice she gave me: though the voice of the many, the voice of the one is shared. the trip i was taking had to be completely for me, if no-one ever saw it, if no one ever funded it, it would be enough. she shared with me, her journey was stepping out of a life that she was supposed to live into finding who she was; it meant not being always what she should be and discovering who she wasn’t; she went willing to be all the things she wasn’t, willing go on an adventure. and when she said this one simple sentence, it really affected me:  "everything in life is a reflection of us speaking to us about us." every person i met, everything that came to me was coming to me to speak to me about me. she told me, i took the rebel road, to take the journey of the unknown, no agenda, but purely to express my own voice and i knew the universe would lead me on its own way. this was purely for me. the world does not need me to change it. when i spoke to people, i said, i am not here for you, i am here for me. by the end of the journey, (7 months on the road with her children) but and experience that lasted seven years. there was so much light in those seven months that it opened up everything cellular, ancestral, that could be opened up in darkness. she went into the darkness, into the pain, into the doubt, into all the things we try to avoid going into and when she emerged after 7 years, the darkness was gone. you can clearly see why i was excited to speak more with Simran. i was a guest on her show which i loved. here is the link to that show: https://www.voiceamerica.com/episode/120662/the-mosaic-daniel-bruce-levin?fbclid=IwAR39xIBi_DPJFWUiDTMQ_-ZOCLhj9AqzUoKWxqICWnXcCo036F1Nn_UzGZ here is what we talked about on The Mosaic Podcast: the connection we feel even though we have never met in person what it means to be an ordinary person having extraordinary experiences a discussion on ordinary and extraordinary growing up too quick, working in her family business, and believing that if she worked hard she would be loved the process of deadening herself to doing what others wanted of her the crack of ego that happens when things get too hard the pain and beauty of the crack discovering what it means to serve herself AND others, who are we, what do we want, what does the soul desire? the excruciating pain of ripping off the mask that is glued to your face and cracking the ego that hides the soul. feeling the space between the irritation of the false that was created and the truth of the soul allowing what is new to emerge and allowing the mask under the mask under the mask to be cracked as we become less of who we were, we tap into more of the truth of what we are it is not who we are but what we are all of the cracking that is taking place is the casting aside of all of the adornments so that we can walk through the door of our own humanity the pain of letting go of who we were vs. remembering what we are and what is coming. the bridge between here and there the past is in a box and the new can’t be confined 99.99% of us are unconscious 99.99% of the time. even the most conscious of those amongst us. be present to the moment and whatever that moment offers. pain, pleasure, despair, etc.  this moment takes you to the next moment.  instead of figuring out how to experience the pain and to not let it overcome her, she choose to invite the experience of the pain TO overcome her being in the feeling of her tears and her knees buckling and knowing what it was there to give her curling up in the presence of this wound and allowing the wound to heal her. what appeared in her life had gold in it  knowing the true light that was in the center of that darkness,  that all the light she was experiencing was artificial lighting and she wanted to know true, real light that shows what the darkness looks like and sooooooo much more to learn more about Simran and the work she does or to purchase her art, please go to here Websites: www.1111mag.com www.iamsimran.com  Social media links Twitter: http://twitter.com/1111magazine Twitter: https://twitter.com/simransingh1111 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/iamsimran1111/ LinkedIn: http://linkedin.com/in/simransingh1111 Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/1111Magazine/ Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/iamsimran1111    to learn more about Daniel B.

Her new book is called, “Being Together: Practical Wisdom for Loving Yourself and Your Partner.” You can get it here: Buy Being Together on Amazon i was amazed at how much we shared in common and how in one conversation we could go so deep.  this was one of the few conversations i have had where we both held the space for the other to be loved and accepted, listened to and heard and acknowledged and validated.  it is what she does in the work she does too. we spoke of: the spaces between the words the beauty of words, but how there is something far more in the work we do for people that happens beneath the words we spoke of time and space and how she feels it dissolving we spoke of the power that comes when we can be together Every moment is sacred including the less preferable ones and so much more but more than the words we spoke, you will feel the vibration between us as you enter into the sacred space of two space holders. when i asked her, if you could say one thing to a world that was listening, what would you say, she answered, I would say: Be present. Every moment is sacred including the less preferable ones. Life is a celebration. Be a devotee of Love and Loving. Life is short. Know that you are enough and trust that you are loved.   This is a podcast you will want to hear.   to find out more about Padma please go to: Facebook: http://www.Facebook.com/padma.gordon Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/padmagordon/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/padma.gordon/ Website: https://www.padmagordon.com   #AgendalessConversation #TheMosaic #TheMosaicPodcast #50ConversationsWith50Strangers #DanielBruceLevin #PadmaGordon #Listen #SeeMe #BePresent #SpirtualGuide #MindfulMovement #BeingTogether   to learn more about Daniel B.

His first book, The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership, was named one of the 100 Best Business Books of All Time. His new book, Love Is Just Damn Good Business, has been listed by Book Authority as one of the top business strategy books of 2020.he says, “Promoting Love Is Just Damn Good Business”  and invites you to receive a  free LEAP Assessment at www.loveisgoodbiz.com Steve believes, It’s time to toss aside the touchy-feely notions of love in business and recognise the real power it holds. Love is not only appropriate in the context of business, it’s the foundation of great leadership, and, therefore, the very foundation of a thriving, competitive enterprise. When love is part of an organization’s framework and operationalized in its culture, employees and customers feel genuinely valued. Employees who are passionate about the work that they do are more loyal, innovative, creative, and inspired, and that translates to great customer experience. They don’t serve others out of obligation, but because of a genuine desire to improve people’s lives. And when customers reciprocate by loving your products, your services, and your people, that’s when something great happens. That’s when you get loyalty. That’s when you get raving fans. It’s a refreshingly human way of doing business. --- this is one of those pivotal conversations that you just have to listen to.  it was unique not only in the conversation we had but in the application of how to introduce love into the business arena. choosing speak about love as the passion you have for what you are do and the feeling you have for the products and services that you offer, rather than speaking from a place of having to love yourself first or love your team, he brings that culture of love in in a way that corporate people can understand and thens peaks of what happens when your team says, “i love working here.” and your clients say, “ i love what these people do." does that mean that everything becomes perfect. listen in to and out. this is a beautiful conversation and one in which Steve, like many others that i interview comments on the uniqueness of the questions and feel of the interview. i highly encourage you to visit his websites and spend some time there and inviting Steve to come and do a presentation for your team.  to find out more about Steve please go to: www.stevefarber.com www.extremeleadership.com or visit him on: LinkedIn Facebook Instagram Twitter   #AgendalessConversation #TheMosaic #TheMosaicPodcast #50ConversationsWith50Strangers #DanielBruceLevin #SteveFarber #Listen #SeeMe #LoveIsJustDamnGoodBusiness #LEAP #ExtremeLeadership #LovingYourProducts #LovingYourServices #lovingYourPeople to learn more about Daniel B.

Somewhere in the back of my mind, i have the idea that the book i wrote, The Mosaic would always be turned into a movie or a Netflix series or something like that and from time to time life brings to me people who are really talented in filmmaking, directing and producing films. i have also always felt that the essence of The Mosaic, the idea of listening to people no one listens to, and watching them righting front of my eyes transform from who i thought they were to who they are.  for the most part, this happens in my seeing something that i never saw in them before, AND . . .  occasionally it happens through the practice of holding space.  when a person feels safe enough to be themselves, all that they are not falls away, leaving only who they are to be seen. both ways involve this practice of compassionate listening and both processes are exquisite to watch. Trina Bardusco is an American-Venezuelan who is passionate about innovative storytelling, championing multiculturalism, diversity and content for women. She has written, directed, produced and or co-hosted a total of nine web series and for-and-about women in both English and Spanish. you can easily see why i was so eager to speak with her. She also co-pioneered HBO Latino’s original, award winning series, Habla, that for over a decade has given a platform to Latinos living in the U.S. Latinos from all walks of life, including dozens of celebrities, share their personal stories. Her latest project, Going Solo, is a documentary series with a distinctly feminine take on the impulse to travel. Blending bold storytelling, far-flung locals, and spirited exploration, we follow Trina as she takes a walk—or twirl, or ride—in another’s shoes, seeking passion and excitement in each unique form of cultural expression.  need i say more, but there is more . . . Trina began her career as a Fulbright Scholar of ethnomusicology in Spain in 1999 for her project, “Flamenco’s Duende and Deep Song.” She soon traded the library for one of the first, readily available DV digital cameras, and started documenting gypsy flamenco singer, Luis Agujeta. This lead to her debut documentary, I’m the Tourist,  where she first began experimenting with immersing herself in a way of life markedly different from her own. what was fabulous to watch in this interview was that moment when we could feel who trina was actually came front an center.  thesis not to say that before na after that moment trina was not real and authentic and beautiful, but if you watch, i thin you will see, there is a moment she something changes. those moments are what i live for. i hope you will enjoy watching this episode and that it will encourage you to usher in that moment for yourself when you become you. to get in touch with trina please go to her website: https://www.TrinaBardusco.com to learn more about Daniel B.

I met Martin several years ago.  in the years i have known him, he has always been one of the kindest people i know.  he is someone who has always given to me way more than he has asked for, he has had me on numerous platforms that he has created and yet over the years we have not seen each other all that much when he invited me to be on a facebook live conversation, i saw something in him that i had not seen before, and i wanted to have him on this podcast to share with us his work around curiosity and his book The Curiosity Theory. i must say, this was one of the most interesting podcasts that i have ever done, because in the middleman our conversation, Martin stepped back to analyse what he was thinking and feeling from a curiosity perspective and then i did the same thing from a place of holding space and listening. the two practices are very similar but i think you will see in this conversation, the living breathing practice of what each of us do. i highly recommend Martin and if you are feeling stuck or this that a new way of looking at the world with curiosity might benefit you and/or you company, please reach out to him. here is a little more Information on who Martin is and how you can reach him: Martin Lopez is an Real Estate Professional as well an Author, Trainer and Coach in the personal development industry. His book The Curiosity Theory is a powerful methodology that radically changes… ✅ The way we look at ourselves ✅ The way we look at each other. ✅ And The way we look at life, The Curiosity Theory gives people alternatives during tense and stressful situations. This allows people to Powerfully Interact vs. Repeating the same mistakes over and over. As a Trainer, Martin’s works with: Start-ups ::: Corporate CEO’s ::: One on One Coaching ::: And High Performance Teams. His gift is uncovering blind spots and strengthening professional and personal relationships, As well as helping teams and organizations work together more openly and efficiently. Martin is a graduate of the University of Santa Monica’s Spiritual Psychology program and has extensive training in may other methodologies. During his 30+ years as a real estate professional and mortgage banker, Martin saw so many opportunities lost due to misaligned energy, conflict and self-sabotaging communications. Almost every time, the issues were human rather than technical: Simple misunderstandings Tragic disagreement Fear-driven distrust The Curiosity Theory is the result of Martin’s exploration. Written in the same humorous, conversational style he uses when teaching seminars. The book is a guide to practicing The Curiosity Theory to strengthen your relationships in all aspects of your life. Applied curiosity improves communication and collaboration. It helps teams work together more openly and efficiently. It brings friends, couples and families closer together.

This happens sometimes in the world of fiction and science fiction, a writer writes a story that speaks of something that happens only to find years later, what the writer saw happen, actually happens. Alfred Alcorn is not a prophet, a psychic or a doomsayer, he is just a brilliant author who has seen enough of the world to tell stories of a world that could be. Sugar Mountain, written in 2013, could become a manual to help us navigate or way through the global pandemic of Coved -19.  it is not an exact rendition, but what it does do, is it invites the reader to contemplate, is Coved -19 a one and done endemic or the messenger for a more deadly pandemic that could surface at any time. Hear Alfred thoughts on what can be done, what the world is trying to say to us and what the world might soon look like if we don’t all come together. First published in 2013 and set in western Massachusetts, Sugar Mountain  revolves around the struggle of an extended family to survive a pandemic  that starts in China and spreads around the world with devastating effect.  As it stands,  Sugar Mountain could serve as a survival manual should Covid 19 mutate and turn more deadly than it already is.  Because of the relevance and increased demand for Sugar Mountain, the publisher has come out with a reissue that might be of interest to those who have not read the 2013 edition.   Born Alfred Denny and orphaned at the age of eight, the author grew up in the U.K. (Merseyside), in Ireland (County Roscommon), and in the U.S. (Massachusetts). He graduated from Harvard and has worked as a journalist, editor, teacher, travel director (for the Harvard Museum of Natural History).  In that last capacity he planned and led trips all over the world, including Antarctica.  He has also been a safari guide, mostly in Tanzania, which he knows well.   To date he has written and published 10 novels.  They have been reviewed in the New Yorker, The New York Times, the Boston Globe, and many other publications.

Ep. 090 The Power of Fear with Diane Ray we had numerous opportunities to meet each other over the course of the years, but we never did, not even when we worked for the same company, Hay House, but then again, she was coming in and I was going out. we got reintroduced through the podcast community and both of us decided it was time to have a conversation. prior to this podcast we had one of two conversations over the phone and I shared with her my feeling that perhaps it was time for her to move from behind the curtain to in front of the curtain and so one of the things I was interested in talking to her about was whether she had gleaned any insights from talking to so many  of the leaders in the industry of self help around the topic of fear. when i asked diane what she would like to say to people, she sent me a quote George Harrison and say " All things must pass" ..we have been through wars, other pandemics and bad presidents. We will get through this as well. Just be kind to each other and remember we are all in this together.  I could tell you more but I think it better if you listen in to see what we talked about  . . .   BIO she has been working in radio broadcasting for over 30 years since she first cracked the mic at age 19 at WSHE She’s Only Rock and Roll in Ft.

i don’t even know how Nick came across my awareness, but the minute I heard about what he was doing, something ignited in me. you see, i had been planning to take a trip around the world to sit with people who did not feel heard and listen to them. i wanted to hear what people would say if someone cared enough to listen to them. i wanted to sit on street corners, government offices, homeless shelters, placesI of worship, bookstores, cafes and truck stops. I wanted to visit strangers in hospitals and talk with CEO’s and entrepreneurs, sit with families and children in schools, i wanted to sit with the homeless and with people who had beautiful homes and ask them some questions and just listen to their answers. but i was scared. my body had gotten older and it was carrying a lot of pain and i was no longer that 18 year old kid who hitchiked around the world’s was now a 65 year old man who was a whole lot less spontaneous than i wanted to admit i was and was looking for companies to sponsor my trip. i was looking for a car company to sponsor my vehicle and a hotel company to let me stay overnight in rooms that were not booked, or a train company that would be willing to let me ride across the country and speak with people on the trains. all great ideas, but what i realized is they were covering up my fear of getting out there and doing it. so i made a decision, i would leave march 1,2020 no matter what.  in judaism they have a great saying, "Man plans and God laughs”.  weeks beforemy departure date, Coved -19 entered our collective lives and no one was going anywhere. so when i heard about nick and hs mission to have 500 lunches with 500 strangers, i had to have him on the show and i had to do what he was doing. and thus i started 50 conversations with 50 strangers (o listen to those conversations, please go to my YouTube channel: to subscribe to my YouTube channel, please go here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVQAe3mbYOT0AFY6Zr-xskg?view_as=subscriber) you will love this podcast, there is a gentleness and a kindness that permeate everything nick does, to hear that, you will have to listen to this show. to find out more about nick and 500 lunches, read below: About Nick Bendel Nick Bendel is an ex-journalist who now owns a content marketing agency called Hunter & Scribe.

Marlisse Hardamon I would like to introduce myself, Lisa, a survivor. 

Yes, I was abused and suffered from the result of that abuse. Yes, I cried and I even tried to end my life, several times. I hated myself and everyone, else. I was bitter and angry. I lived in a place of darkness, it covered my soul. I drank and smoked, just to numb the pain. I lived in the world of victimization, unable to heal and forgive.

But, today I dance in the light of my life, not as a victim, but a victor.  I have learned to not only forgive my perpetrators but to forgive myself. I have learned to move past my pain, not by pretending it never happened, but by drawing strength from it, because it happened. I have been able to transform my life, using my pain as a platform to show women, how to live a transformed life, to move beyond their current situation into a place of wholeness, peace, and joy.

Joe Pryor, is the author of Unlikely Destiny a book that has receive high regards from both celebrities and ordinary people. it is available wherever books are sold or on amazon. A quote from Unlikely Destiny “Have you ever really looked at yourself in the mirror? Have you ever asked yourself, "Why are you here?" Have you ever thought about your true purpose in life, or your Destiny? These are just a few of the questions I've asked you to think about, while reading Unlikely Destiny Volume One. The idea behind every question is to get you to think! To keep you always thinking outside the box. To think about every person you've met on your journey in life and why you invited them into your environment. The environment I speak about is YOU.”  Joe is a patented inventor, a former dedicated law enforcement officer and a security consultant to high profile celebrities and corporate executives. Joe’ s FOCUS FORWARD mindset has translated his dreams into reality. In his book he shares his easy common-sense steps, that helped him overcome the odds to find personal and professional success through understanding his UNLIKELY DESTINY. it is those odds again that we as a nation need to overcome if we will ever achieve our purpose to fulfil our Unlikely Destiny as a world nation. If ever the country needed someone like Joe, it is now and so I invited Joe to be with me today to discuss race relations, growing up black in Watts/Compton, being a police officer and i wanted to lean upon his wisdom to hopefully share some insight as to where do we go from here. Joe has decided to come and be with us today, on June 7th, his birthday and at the time of this recording the world is experiencing its 13th day of mostly peaceful protests and unrest in opposition to the public lynching of a black man by the knee of a white police officer as he repeatedly said “I can’t breathe.” while the nation watch and no one stood up to stop this murderer. What you will hear on this podcast his words on celebrating his 60th birthday, one that he did not ever think he would reach how hard it is to believe it is 2020 and we are still having this conversation watching people die in Vietnam and the Gulf War and thinking that is not happening here, but living the reality of a black or brown person, it is happening here I can’t breathe, one nation being held down by another the advances of technology that made the truth finally irrefutable seeing what he saw growing up, how in the world did he decide to be a police officer deliberate acts vs mistakes or accidental behaviour being an individual rather than being controlled by the crowd around you standing up to those who are misusing their authority standing up to authority when you know you will be targeted it is not training, it is the individual the advantage of growing up with a diverse community of people the 90-10 rule what happens when the 10% infiltrate into our leadership? the 2 black man in a Porsche story the elderly woman and the pepper spray story link to his first podcast on The Mosaic Podcast: Ep 08 An Unlikely Destiny https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-mosaic-podcast/id1465338321?i=1000440369490 how is it possible that the colour of a person’s skin should draw so much hatred the liquid courage of the gun and the badge and the story of a little white man and the problem he had with him the difference in what different colors of humanity do when they are in trouble defunding the police departments????? is the determent a big enough determent can we get out of this situation or do we just need to do our best the community of Russian Jews, the police and taking care of it on their own the bigger conversation is not about the police but about how do we find trust risking their life to protest the unfair treatment of people why we don’t stand up to authority? even in the highest branches of government we know what the leaders are doing is wrong and we try to stand up and get fired and lose our live. it happens in sports in business, in education. the police are the needle in the haystack. the change that is happening now and where do we go from here a deliberate action is not a mistake when the 90% takes action, the importance of voting and putting leadership in check what is different now than the protest of the 60’s is the loss of the religious institution of the church in our communities are less present what is the human factor? my shame in experiencing the White Flight Syndrome and systemic racism ad getting rid of the inherited bias of racism my experience of being a minority of one in a room where the majority was black if there ever is going to be change, someone has to do it. how you can reach Joe: BUY his book Unlikly Destiny here: https://www.amazon.com/Unlikely-Destiny-Beginning-Opportunity-Unlimited-ebook/dp/B07CV8PMMH or reach out to him in the following places: www.unlikelydestiny.com instagram: unlikelydestiny Facebook: unlikelydestiny twitter: Focusforward   to learn more about Danny please visit: www.DanielBruceLevin.com www.TheMosaicOnline.com www.TheMosaicPodcast.com to get a copy of The Mosaic go to, https://themosaiconline.com/shop/ or get it on amazon by going to: http://a.co/dvgsgG3

Bio: Jim Nelson and Rene Agredano are a married couple who live, work and write from the road in their RV. Their nomadic life began in 2007, when they sold their home, business and nearly everything they owned to travel with their terminally-ill dog, Jerry. Given just a few months to live after his leg amputation, Jerry’s bone cancer diagnosis at age eight turned their lives upside down and around. But against all odds, Jerry defied the bleak prognosis. He enjoyed two unforgettable years hopping along on three legs, from coast-to-coast and back again. Wherever he went, his joyful nature inspired others to look beyond adversity and embrace the present moment. The trio founded Tripawds.com, the world’s largest support community for three legged pets and their people. Later in 2014 they formed the non-profit Tripawds Foundation to aid amputee pets. The couple continues managing Tripawds and chronicling their travels at liveworkdream.com. What is our purpose? Rene: To help underserved people and animals feel heard, supported and valued. Jim: I believe I am here to help people Be More Dog, especially in times of distress or challenge. Jerry taught us about Resilience, Acceptance, Perseverance, Lovingkindness, Awareness, Gratitude...I'm paying that forward. Instead of just "helping people smile" as I originally answered, I do the work I do to help pet parents cope with difficult situations by following their dog's lead. what you will hear in this podcast: a love story on many levels how 2 people and one dog deal with a terminal diagnosis given to their dog and create a new life from it what in the world possessed them to completely change their lifestyle and go out on the road with a 3 legged terminally ill dog? how Jerry, their dog, showed them how they had lost the very thing they loved about life diving into the pivot point a little deeper of what happened in that moment how Jerry’s diagnosis brought light to and coincided with a moment of burnout that they only now saw the crack where the light comes in. a line from a Leonard Cohen song resonates with them the daily routine of no routine helped Jerry hold on as Jim every night spoke to hi and told him just hold on buddy how the thought of a one year sabbatical from life turned into an entirely new life hear how everything conspired to move them along their journey are there moments of regret? the walked into two big trends unknowingly: the nomadic lifestyle and the minimalist the role of Jerry in teaching them how to deal with having conflict when living in such a small space putting what they love ahead of everything else has this lifestyle become a new comfort zone? with RV parks shutting down due to the pandemic, Rene wondered if the lifestyle without water, and sewage was still right. what scares them the most about the lifestyle they are living a book that helps them to look at fear: Fearvana what was the biggest surprise? and what completely changed in the way you live life now when does Jerry stop being the teacher and you grow into the space of seeing how awesome you are? how our stories make sense until they no longer make sense? from 3-legged’s to 2 legged’s and taking the lesson they learned in a time of adversity to being the stories that inspire others now the possible development of owning the new brand “Be More Dog”. the need for people to hear the message of what people are really like out there? the story of the pear tree the dropping of the gun, the loss of fearing others and the beauty of reframing your life through making a choice the power of Viktor Frankel’s words the one thing . . .

Karina is the founder and president of EXQUISE, online journal (www.exquisemag.com) she founded in January 2013. Exquise (pronounced ex-KEES) is about exquisite stories that started out featuring current and notable events, people, and places. It didn’t take long for Karina’s interest in technology to take hold. By the end of 2014, Karina decided to shift her focus on future trends moved by Silicon Valley’s energy and its ecosystem of the big and bold startups disrupting conventional businesses, their founders and funders, many of whom have become household names globally by making the impossible possible.   Karina is passionate about bleeding-edge technologies and innovation realizing that they are the most powerful drivers of transformation and success, basically shaping all aspects of life whether cultural, economic, political, sociological, medical, psychological, physiological, and so on.   An entrepreneurial technologist by training, she is also a consultant for start-ups and a bridge-builder between the Philippines and Silicon Valley’s ecosystems.   To contact Karina, please email her: karina@exquisemag.com or find her on twitter @Karinasfonyc here is also a suggested reading list for anyone interested in knowing more about the subject Karina touched upon here: As you now know, my passion is in bleeding-edge technologies (big thinkers and big ideas - current and historic), particularly, AI, Robotics, and the brain, mind, and consciousness (Psychology, Neuroscience, Philosophy). Here are some of the books that opened the "door" for me, basically blew my mind, and, like Alice, I just fell into the rabbit hole and into this wild, wild, insanely awesome world that is magical. "Curiouser and curiouser, indeed," said Karina... The more I know, the more I don't know, ergo, the more I want --- and need --- to know.  Besides these mind-bending topics, I am also doing a lot of reading on anything and all theoretical physics, quantum mechanics, quantum technology, quantum computers, cosmology ... the foundational technologies that will be the avenues to more possibilities, more potentials, infinite discoveries towards a desirable future for humanity, the future...       Without further ado, here are my top favorite books thus far: Sapiens - Yuval Noah Harari - NYTimes bestseller - a phenomenal account of history explaining how homo sapiens got to today. Homo Deus - Yuval Noah Harari - NYTimes bestseller - a continuation of Sapiens Leonardo da Vinci - Walter Isaacson - NYTimes bestseller - Remarkable take on a monumental figure inspired by thousands of pages from this genius' genius's astonishing notebooks. Einstein - Walter Isaacson - NYTimes bestseller, another superbly-written book on another genius' genius. Life 3.0 - Max Tegmark - NYTimes bestseller, a Barack Obama favorite books 2018, a Bloomberg Technology list book 2018, a Bill Gates favorite books 2018 on how humans will evolve. Magnificent. Superintelligence - Nick Bostrom - The term "paperclips" representative of a notion in a world of superintelligence that became ubiquitous the AI community originated from this book. "Swedish philosopher Nick Bostrom from the University of Oxford. It argues that if machine brains surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could replace humans as the dominant lifeform on Earth. Sufficiently intelligent machines could improve their own capabilities faster than human-computer." Industries of the Future - Alec Ross - American technology policy expert and the former Senior Advisor for Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State his insight on where we are headed and how to prepare for this coming world.  The Age of Surveillance Capitalism - Shoshan Zuboff - well-written, well-researched book on how our minds are manipulated by technology for capitalism  Consciousness - Confessions of A Romantic Reductionist - The inimitable Christof Koch, president and chief scientist of the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle and his take on consciousness. Left To Their Own Devices - Julie Albright - Digital Sociologist take on the impact of tech on society Our Mathematical Universe - Max Tegmark - MIT Physics professor proves and explains in simple yet mind-bending terms the impossible concept of parallel universes. Thinking Fast and Slow - Daniel Kahneman - NYTimes bestseller, renowned psychologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics,  "a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical." In this podcast, you will see and hear: watch the way some of the stories that keep us limited fall away as we get to know each other better and become more comfortable with each other as a kid the thing she wanted and the reason she wanted it and how looking back now it all seems so silly how her move from a very respected family in the Phillipines to the Bay Area in California and how that impacted her the importance of integrating where she was from with where she is now her surprise that she is where she is now and that she is accepted as she is what she gives as her reason for why she felt she is sitting with the people she gets to sit with and seeing that what she felt it was is not what it was and find out why it really was? the enlightenment that showed her a life that was right in front of her the moment when the light comes on in the room we are standing in and suddenly being able to see everything that was right there in front of us always the moment she shifted from her day job to writing about the transformations happening in technology the desire to become involved in the world that causing the most impact driving change in the world comes how a David becomes a Goliath what excites her most on the bleeding edge of technology the redefinition of what we think we know is aging natural or is it a disease the infiltration of artificial intelligence and where it is headed the excitement of technology and the new problems it could create what we think is 5-10 years away is already here, just not as easy to use now the last piece of us that is really ours and what the discussion will be as the “regular people” want it to help for the children will solving the problems of today only bring new problems. what do we need to do to elevate out of that moment the very private moral decisions that we will be making very soon that will redetermine our values how important it is to integrate all of what is happening into our lives the biases inherent in the programing of AI that we don’t even see what is the importance of The Human Centered AI in the work being done at Stanford Swarm Intelligence, the collective mind and the work being done to help humans think together science, technology, retail, institutions, work, relationships, shopping, socializing; everything is changing now with the study of AI the goal of AI . . . The existential threat and existential hope that await us. That we must steer carefully amid these powerful new technologies at hand and make sure that the algorithmic development in AI, for example, is in alignment with our values as humans. the future is the present seeing what is ahead. Elon Musk and development of the grand plan uploading our consciousness via chip and digitizing it then reform ourselves on the other side the grand plan is the survival of humanity the future of education the place of technology in bringing to life of what needs to be done to protect the only earth we currently have the importance of each of us going out to vote open yourself and don’t be afraid; open your eyes and experience the possibilities that exist. I hope you will reach out to Karina if the work you are doing is in need of, AI, Robotics or simply cutting edge technologies that can help your company grow To contact her, please email her @ karina@exquisemag.com or find her on twitter @Karinasfonyc to contact Danny: please go to: https://www.DanielBruceLevin.com https://www.TheMosaicOnline.com to get a copy of Danny’s book, The Mosaic please go to:  https://themosaiconline.com/shop/ or on amazon go to: http://a.co/dvgsgG3

Seema Agarwal is a mystic, truth-seeker, and a transformation catalyst. she cares deeply about the individual well-being and shaping of our collective consciousness.  She started her professional career as an Engineer but soon realized that her inner devotion and love towards the Divine outweighed everything. This love led her through a journey of healing, awakening, and weeding out that from her consciousness which kept her separate.  The never-ending quest for understanding life’s mysteries brought her to many long spiritual journeys in India and the West, where she spent a considerable amount of time learning the different streams of wisdom – Divine Union through Yoga, Breathwork, Mantras, Systemic Constellations, Ancestral Healing, Energy Healing, Evolutionary Astrology, Human Design, and Gene Keys. At some point in her journey all the personal and collective suffering within her exploded and she became at peace with the world. Life with all its ironies has been humbling and beautiful. Her purpose of my life is love, service, and liberation. what you will hear in this podcast:   this was different than most podcast I do. a little more teachy than I usual allow but the information is so fascinating I wanted to let it happen because I truly believe she sees links to ancestral healing that we don’t see.   someone that sees things others do not see that can release you from pain and suffering from places you may never have even considered possible the pivotal moment when she could no longer be an engineer the point where it was no longer ok and what it looks like even though we can love the divine anywhere, we don’t? why how does this change happen? her dads death before she was born and the burden she carried the acceptable behaviour of a lost childhood repeating the pattern what happened when she served others and what happened when she wanted to do something for herself what it means to be living in a living universe? who you think you are you are and so much more the forces that influence us explained how does the transference of family constellations happen and indigenous cultures it turns more personal when seema responds and gives some other possible reasons for what I am going through in my story of my dad and how it got passed to me we try to figure it out from the place we are in, when maybe its roots are ancestral if you are new to this work, do not pull the curtain all the way up. but if you have been doing the work on yourself that you have been doing but feel stuck, work with someone who can see what you don't see, including the generational work that can free you. the release process and what a session looks like whereas some say easier said than done, with the shamanic process, it is easier done than said the healing practice of tuning into the family tree and listening to what comes I love how the practice of listening crosses generational timelines and reveals what is happening generationally until the pattern emerges. contact her to be a part of her introductory workshop hear her response to the question I ask everyone as a final question   to learn more about Seema, please go to her website: https://www.innerconstellations.com/ her work on Systemic constellations and Ancestral Healing can be seen by going to this direct link to that offering – https://www.innerconstellations.com/constellationhealingsession/   to learn more about Danny: please visit www.DanielBruceLevin.com www.TheMosaicOnline.com www.TheMosaicPodcast.com to get a copy of The Mosaic go to, https://themosaiconline.com/shop/ or get it on amazon by going to: http://a.co/dvgsgG3

Meredith Atwood (@SwimBikeMom) is a former attorney, podcaster and speaker. She is the author of two books, the latest: The Year of No Nonsense. Host of the “The Same 24 Hours” podcast. Featured in The Boston Globe, New York Post, the Seattle Times. Contributing writer to Psychology Today and an advocate for sobriety.   “My purpose in this world is to seek no master purpose: rather, to do the work that is right in front of me, do it well and feel with my whole heart the direction I need to go.” What you will hear on this podcast: how calm she feels just listening to my voice after a very busy hectic day growing up with helicopter parents the way perspective changes as she grew up the moment she no longer needed to impress her parents healing emotions and true sobriety which only happened in the last month emotional sobriety and being an addict if 1 is good 10 is better if you could heal your addiction what would that life look like the messages we are told that bring us to addiction to try to feel better the idea of emotional sobriety is the way of not always seeking that external hit to feel better. finding the strength within yourself to find that peace. the need for comfort and where does she now get that from the addiction cycle to feel better: pain, need comfort; go get it; the relief followed by the crash and it starts all over again constantly seeking to feel better and emotional sobriety of feeling peaceful inside and not needing to seeing it externally. I feel all of that and yet want to have something sweet to comfort me and the desire to have more of them when you decide to become emotional sober, you become emotional sober are you living a life in conflict to who you say you want to be. if you are you are probably addicted in some way to something that we need to take a look at playing with ordinary and extraordinary the cross between the expectation that we need to be extraordinary and find out purpose and the suffering that creates addicts how pushing people to be extraordinary pushes people into addiction what is a year of no nonsense mean? when people say they want one thing but act as if they don’t want it where being conscious plays in defining what we believe what to do to rid yourself of nonsense start with the truth. a slap to the culture of positive vibes only does perspective change truth? dismantle the truth you think is true and find your real truth the goal of her book, to remove the stigma of addiction what has brought her the peace she now feels and what are the voices that hold us back dream big and do things in the direction of the dream one thing people could do right now Website: https://swimbikemom.com    LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/meredithatwood/  Instagram:  https://instagram.com/swimbikemom (12.6k) Twitter: https://twitter.com/swimbikemom (4.5k) Facebook Page:  https://facebook.com/swimbikemom (32k) YouTube: https://youtube.com/user/mnatwood Pinterest: https://pinterest.com/swimbikemom  Books The Year of No Nonsense: How to Get Over Yourself and On with Your Life   Triathlon for the Every Woman: You Can Be a Triathlete.

Contemplating suicide to escape the pain as he looked over the balcony, he had a life-saving AH-HA moment. He realized that failure was a normal part of life: admitting to himself that he failed and to recognize he needed to stop blaming others and circumstances. This was the turning point when he made a choice to learn from his failures so he could do things differently in the future and to help others. Since then, he has climbed back to create a business and scaling it to 8 figures in less than a year. His life mission is to help people develop a healthy relationship with failure. Especially entrepreneurs.   this is a longer than usual podcast, but I hope you find value in it and I hope it blows your mind.

He owned property in one of the most prestigious areas in San Francisco and worked in media sales, at Newsweek, The New Yorker, was involved with several start-ups, and was professionally invested in a business that had nothing to do with his passion; until he couldn't pretend anymore. He was out of touch with his feelings and unable to even recognize many of them; and although he was able to attract wonderful people as partners, he had no idea how to be a wonderful partner or how to create a fulfilling relationship. He was disconnected.

  Richard Blanco’s mother, seven months pregnant, and the rest of the family arrived as exiles from Cuba to Madrid where he was born.  Forty-five days later, the family immigrated once more to New York City, and eventually settled in Miami. Only a few weeks old, Blanco already belonged to three countries, a foreshadowing of the negotiations of cultural identity, community, and belonging that would shape his life and continue to inform his work.  As a poet, memoirist, and essayist, Blanco is a sought-after speaker who captivates audiences around the nation and the world with his dynamic storytelling and powerful readings.   Advocating for diversity, LGBTQ rights, immigration, arts education, cultural exchange, and other important issues of our time, Blanco routinely speaks at a variety of venues and functions, including fundraisers and galas, professional development conferences, middle and high schools, universities, commencement ceremonies, writing conferences, and literary festivals. Whether speaking as the Cuban Blanco or the American Richard, the homebody or the world traveler, the shy boy or the openly gay man, the civil engineer or the civic-minded poet, Blanco’s writings possess a story-rich quality that illuminates the human spirit. His work asks those universal questions we all ask ourselves on our own journeys: Where am I from? Where do I belong? Who am I in this world?   Here is what you will hear in this podcast: * hear the big message he wants to convay to the world today. * what it means to be dependence, independent and interdependent * the influence of his parents being 2nd language english speakers and how he learned the linguistic power of language * how language is not just a form of communication but rather a way fo being in the world. * how growing up in a family who didn’t know who the Rolling Stones were, and was homophobic around the arts and the creative curiosity that led him to poetry. *what happens when you do something full heartedly without expectation. * how things evolved slowly one step at a time *how through exploring he found poetry, something that he never even knew was possible. * the simplicity of following your heart,  * how just showing up in those crisis moments and just continuing to show up in all aspects of life * the experience of discovering something new * hear him explore those moments of self doubt * the dance of simplicity and success and ego and how it influenced his poetry * the call from the white house * the constant dance of ego and self doubt * listen to his beautiful honesty and vulnerability of his being * the love and innocence of simple guy who wrote for the joy of writing and the prestige of the accomplished writer who doesn’t want toilet down his readers and the effect both have on his writing  *how challenging yourself keeps you relevant * the harmony he feels at the creative edge * the mindset that always second guesses ourselves and thinks we could have done better vs, showing up as the simple person we are and doing the best we can do *writing as a spiritual practice and a practice of surrender * that first moment of conscious as a kid and how that space brings him to innocence *make me an instrument of your peace- st * inaugural speech * the hardest thing in living is getting to the simplest place or flow * it was the best of times and the worst of times   ONE TODAY A Poem for Barack Obama's Presidential Inauguration January 21, 2013   One sun rose on us today, kindled over our shores, peeking over the Smokies, greeting the faces of the Great Lakes, spreading a simple truth across the Great Plains, then charging across the Rockies. One light, waking up rooftops, under each one, a story told by our silent gestures moving behind windows. My face, your face, millions of faces in morning’s mirrors, each one yawning to life, crescendoing into our day: pencil-yellow school buses, the rhythm of traffic lights, fruit stands: apples, limes, and oranges arrayed like rainbows begging our praise. Silver trucks heavy with oil or paper— bricks or milk, teeming over highways alongside us, on our way to clean tables, read ledgers, or save lives— to teach geometry, or ring-up groceries as my mother did for twenty years, so I could write this poem. All of us as vital as the one light we move through, the same light on blackboards with lessons for the day: equations to solve, history to question, or atoms imagined, the “I have a dream” we keep dreaming, or the impossible vocabulary of sorrow that won’t explain the empty desks of twenty children marked absent today, and forever. Many prayers, but one light breathing color into stained glass windows, life into the faces of bronze statues, warmth onto the steps of our museums and park benches as mothers watch children slide into the day. One ground. Our ground, rooting us to every stalk of corn, every head of wheat sown by sweat and hands, hands gleaning coal or planting windmills in deserts and hilltops that keep us warm, hands digging trenches, routing pipes and cables, hands as worn as my father’s cutting sugarcane so my brother and I could have books and shoes. The dust of farms and deserts, cities and plains mingled by one wind—our breath. Breathe. Hear it through the day’s gorgeous din of honking cabs, buses launching down avenues, the symphony of footsteps, guitars, and screeching subways, the unexpected song bird on your clothes line. Hear: squeaky playground swings, trains whistling, or whispers across café tables, Hear: the doors we open for each other all day, saying: hello / shalom, buon giorno / howdy / namaste / or buenos días in the language my mother taught me—in every language spoken into one wind carrying our lives without prejudice, as these words break from my lips. One sky: since the Appalachians and Sierras claimed their majesty, and the Mississippi and Colorado worked their way to the sea. Thank the work of our hands: weaving steel into bridges, finishing one more report for the boss on time, stitching another wound or uniform, the first brush stroke on a portrait, or the last floor on the Freedom Tower jutting into a sky that yields to our resilience. One sky, toward which we sometimes lift our eyes tired from work: some days guessing at the weather of our lives, some days giving thanks for a love that loves you back, sometimes praising a mother who knew how to give, or forgiving a father who couldn’t give what you wanted. We head home: through the gloss of rain or weight of snow, or the plum blush of dusk, but always—home, always under one sky, our sky. And always one moon like a silent drum tapping on every rooftop and every window, of one country—all of us— facing the stars hope—a new constellation waiting for us to map it, waiting for us to name it—together   THE PRAYER OF ST FRANCIS that Richard referenced   Lord, make me an instrument of your peace Where there is hatred, let me sow love Where there is injury, pardon Where there is doubt, faith Where there is despair, hope Where there is darkness, light And where there is sadness, joy O Divine Master, grant that I may Not so much seek to be consoled as to console To be understood, as to understand To be loved, as to love For it is in giving that we receive And it's in pardoning that we are pardoned And it's in dying that we are born to Eternal Life Amen   to find out more about Richard: Website https://richard-blanco.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RichardBlancoPoetry/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/poetrichardblanco/?hl=en/  (instagram.com/poetrichardblanco) Twitter: https://twitter.com/rblancopoet?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor (twitter.com/rblancopoet)    Richard you can read Richard’s poetry in his latestest book HOW TO LOVE A COUNTRY, please go to: https://www.amazon.com/How-Love-Country-Richard-Blanco/dp/0807025917/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=how+to+love+a+country&qid=1582992528&sr=8-1   To find out more about Danny: www.DanielBruceLevin.com www.The MosaicOnline.Com to buy danny’s book, The Mosaic:  http://a.co/dvgsgG3
