"To thine own self be true." My dad used to say this to me all of the time, and it is something which has been so resonant for me for the past couple of years. Through interviews with regular folks, I explore what being true to yourself means for other people, how they live this and how this creates a ripple effect in their lives and communities. When we live true to ourselves, we have meaningful impact in the lives of those around us and that is how the world changes. Grassroots human evolution.

Colleen Williams is a dynamic and inspiring woman who offers a unique and insightful perspective on life.  A former teacher, Colleen is now an actor, a director, an artist, a poet, a mother, partner and grandmother.  We met over a decade ago through a local book club, and then collaborated as part of a play reading series which Colleen introduced to our community in concert with our local public library.  Join us in Colleen's lovely backyard, as we sit amongst the birds and discuss what it means to live in integrity and how the past year of living through the Covid 19 pandemic has challenged our ability to live true to ourselves.
My conversation this week is with psychotherapist, coach and sound and energy healer, Maria Galle.  I first met Maria Galle while studying at Toronto's Transformational Arts College, where she is an instructor.  Maria approaches her life and her craft in a heart-centered, compassionate manner, enabling others to have the courage to do the same.  I hope that you find our exchange as inspiring and liberating as I did!
