Today I'm announcing that I'm "suspending my campaign" as podcaster for a while to focus on music. I'm about as happy and inspired as I've ever been with the music I'm writing and the guys I'm performing it with, and it's time to give that my full attention. In this episode, I talk about how I came to this decision, and some of the lessons I've learned over the past 200 episodes. I want to thank everyone out there who's been listening to the podcast and supporting the show. Please stay subscribed so we can reconnect when I relaunch the show sometime down the road!

What do you crave? What would happen if you fasted from it, maybe not permanently, but intermittently? In this episode, I talk about my experimentation this week with intermittent fasting, and what it's doing for me physically and spiritually. I'm inviting everyone listening to check out intermittent fasting for yourselves to see if it's something that may benefit you, and I'm also inviting everyone to take a look at what you crave. What's behind that craving? Is it a need or a want? Is it a real hunger, or is it an escape from something else? You can find out more about Bulletproof intermittent fasting, the type of fasting I'm doing, here: https://www.bulletproofexec.com/bulletproof-intermittent-fasting-the-definitive-guide/ If you're trying intermittent fasting, or examining the roots of your cravings, share your thoughts with me either via email or social media at the links below!

Today I'm featuring a short audio clip of my dad talking about going to work at age 14 driving a truck for his father when his father was in the hospital. I listened to my dad telling this story and was inspired until it went in a different direction when he related it to modern day events. How many times do we make a sacrifice thinking of what we'll get in return? Sometimes we do it intentionally. Sometimes we don't do it intentionally, but we enter into what I call the "Economy of Suffering" long after we've made our sacrifice, hoping it will get us a return on our suffering. Here's my Self-Help Rockstar take on Transactional Sacrifice, or The Economy of Suffering, and what to do when you catch yourself buying into it. Thanks for supporting the show!

If you've been hearing about the health benefits of fermented foods and wondering what they're all about, this episode is for you. My guest today is Dr. Jeremy Princi, chiropractor and nutrition & lifestyle coach. You can find Jeremy online at his website, http://www.holisticlifestyler.com/ In this interview, Jeremy and I talk about fermented foods, the gut microbiome, the connection between your gut and your mood, and much more! During this interview, I realized how Kefir may have helped me turn my worst depression around, and how including fermented foods in my diet may have been helping me improve my allergies over the past several years! During this interview, Jeremy mentions a research paper referencing the benefits of fermented foods for ankylosing spondylitis. You can find this research paper online here: http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jir/2013/872632/ I also mention an herbal supplement that I use for my allergies.

Today's guest is wellness practitioner, yoga instructor, fitness instructor, and all-around spiritual being, Erin Furry. Erin and I met when I visited DeFranco's Gym at Onnit Academy during my trip to Austin, TX earlier this year. In this part one of my interview with Erin, we discuss her history, her journey, and how she got to where she is today, living a life she loves. From a troubled childhood to navigating her way through many different jobs (go-go dancer, photographer, zip line tour guide...), Erin found her own personal healing through yoga, exercise, and spirituality, and now she's helping others find their own healing as well.

The show returns today from a one week hiatus while I was away with Appalachia Service Project, helping to repair and rebuild homes in rural West Virginia. In this episode, hear how my plans for simplifying my life for a week got turned upside-down, and how a couple of teenagers with really good impersonation skills taught me a valuable life lesson about attitude and being able to laugh at yourself. Please consider donating to ASP. They do life-changing work year after year to help the poorest people of Appalachia have homes that are warmer, safer, and drier. This year, they need your help more than ever after a flood devastated many homes throughout West Virginia. You can find out more about ASP and donate at their website: www.asphome.org.

This week, it's just me, folks! I'm embarking on two journeys soon. One is my annual trip to Appalachia to work with Appalachia Service Project (www.asphome.org), and the other is a journey to streamline and simplify my life. In this episode, I talk about how I've allowed things to get out of hand with all the things I'm doing, and how it's making me feel stretched beyond my limits and overwhelmed. I'm inviting everyone listening to join me on this journey of streamlining and simplifying my life so we can all live simpler but more fulfilling lives together. i'm taking a week off from the podcast while I'm away with ASP, but the podcast will return with new episodes the first week in July!

Today my guest is holistic lifestyle guide, Cassandra Bodzak. Cassandra's here to talk about our relationships with food and with our bodies. When we decide to make changes in our lifestyle and our diet to become healthier, we often overlook how we feel about ourselves as part of the change process. If we accept ourselves lovingly before embracing change, we have a greater chance of making successful positive changes than we do if we make changes because we feel we're broken or inadequate. Cassandra has some great wisdom and personal experiences to share about the connection between our healthy choices and our self-judgment. You can find Cassandra online at her website, where you'll find videos, recipes, and more!: http://cassandrabodzak.com/ You can also find her on Instagram at: https://www.instagram.com/cassandrabodzak/ Thanks for supporting the show!

The moment Kim Breden told me she was involved with staging musicals in maximum security prisons, I knew I had to have her tell those stories on this show. Kim is a musical theater performer, teacher, and director. She's the owner of Be Mused Productions (http://bemusedproductions.com/home), and she's been involved with Rehabilitation Through the Arts for many years (http://www.rta-arts.org/), putting on plays and musicals in medium and maximum security prisons in New York State. Kim's stories of what it takes to put on musicals in maximum security prisons and the way it's transformed her life and the lives of everyone involved are truly inspiring. Kim mentions a documentary called Dramatic Escape in this interview. You can find the trailer for it here on Vimeo: https://vimeo.com/139630064 Thanks for supporting the show!

It's love that holds it all together... That's the chorus of this week's song, and that's what I'm focusing on right now. This will be the last Inspiration Monday episode for a while as I scale back to airing shows once a week. I'll be focusing on weekly interviews with monthly insights from me rather than cramming two or three episodes into a week. I'm doing this to take a step back and reevaluate what I'm doing with the show so that I don't become burned out with it, and so I keep loving what I'm doing. I hope in doing that, I can be an example for anyone else out there who does too much and takes on too many projects and too much responsibility. Sometimes we need to take a step backward in order to move forward more effectively.

Time for a guided meditation with my good friend, Elena Swan! Elena is a psychic medium, Reiki master, meditation coach and angel card reader. She's on the show today to take us through a guided meditation where we'll get to meet our energy spirit guide - the guide we can turn to when we need a boost of energy, or when we're feeling depleted. This is the first real guided meditation we've done on the show, so I hope everyone listening gets something out of it. Message me on any of my links below to let me know, or contact Elena through her website for more info: http://www.connectionswithelena.com/ Elena's also here to talk about her upcoming Connections Wellness and Psychic Fair happening in Tarrytown, NY on June 4, 2016.

I LOVE this song by Red Hot Chili Peppers, both for the music and the lyrics. I love that it's a new song and a new take on embracing your shadow self. I've talked before on the show about accepting the darker aspects of our selves in order to find balance and embrace change. No matter how many times I talk about it, I always come back to it, and I always enjoy it when another artist finds a new way to convey that message.

Yeah, so this Wednesday this wisdom is coming from... me :) Normally I feature interviews with awesome people who have life-improving wisdom and experience to share. This time, technical difficulties and scheduling challenges left me without any recorded interviews, so I had to come up with some wisdom myself. Hope you enjoy my brief bit of wisdom I'm sharing today. More interviews will be on the way soon! Thanks for supporting the show!

This week, I'm needing help with some new challenges, so I'm reaching out to people who've been there already and made it through those challenges. Instead of thinking I know everything and pushing my way through things blindly, I'm talking to people with experience who may be able to offer me some knowledge or advice that can help. Who can you ask to "check your brain" this week with something you're struggling with?

F-Word Friday is back! At least, for this Friday. F-Word Friday episodes will be bonus episodes for the time being, usually unedited and raw. I took a break for a while to focus my time and energy on music, but I had some extra time and some inspiration this week, so I decided to record an F-Word Friday episode. The F-Word for today is: funding. Check out today's episode to find out how I related the idea of energy and health to keeping a budget for a client that I'm working with, and how using that analogy helped me as well.

Instead of asking "How old are you?" what if we asked, "How many years of life experience do you have?" That's one of the questions posed by my guest today, certified sage-ing leader, Jerome Kerner. In this interview, Jerome and I talk about sage-ing, spirituality, life and death, and more! You can find out more about sage-ing at http://sage-ing.org/ Or contact Jerome directly at jkerner35@optonline.net *Editor's note: in the audio, I say that the sage-ing website is sage-ingintermational dot org.

Who's taking up space in your head? It might be time to take out the... Garbage. Yes, I said that. I'm sorry. I couldn't resist. Seriously, though, are you using up energy thinking about someone who did you wrong, or talking about them? Let's use today's song, "Empty," by Garbage, to help us clear those people out of our minds so we can focus on bettering ourselves. You can download this song here on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/empty/id1092715940?i=1092715942 Seriously, go download this song and pre-order the album!
