Fiona & Friends: Mark Keane in Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web

April 09, 2012 By: fiona Category: Fiona and Friends, Meeting Spirit to Spirit

If you have no idea of what kundalini yoga or dance is, please come and tune in to this week’s show. I have the great pleasure of having Mark Keane in the studio with me and he’s going to be telling us about the kundalini energy and how we can harness it in our daily lives.

Mark teaches classes in the Wilder St. Studio in Bristol and is available for individual tuition too.

He also runs an event called Conscious Clubbing which revolves around people connecting consciously and having a good time without having to lose themselves to alcohol, drugs or the like.  When you attend one of these events, not only will you be able to connect with like-minded people who love to merge with the love on the dance floor, but there might also be the opportunity to be part of drumming circles, do group meditations or even join in with some kundalini dance.

Tune in on Wednesday evening on Blog Talk Radio at 8pm GMT (noon PST, 3pm EST) and listen to how Mark got involved with his life work. Find out how unleashing your kundalini through dance and yoga can bring about amazing change for the better in your life and take the opportunity to have a chat with Mark.

Here’s the link to the show: Mark Keane in Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web.

And for those of you who are unable to join us, the recording is available in the the archive for you to listen to at your leisure and share with your friends.

Fiona & Friends: Jon Robson in Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web

March 09, 2012 By: fiona Category: Fiona and Friends, Meeting Spirit to Spirit

I’m so looking forward to having my next guest with me on Blog Talk Radio on Wednesday 14th March. His name is Jon Robson. He’s a Brit now resident in Carbondale, Colorado and  is a very muti-facetted soul indeed.

We met a few years ago in Houston when we both attended a facilitator training with Dr. John Demartini  some of you may know from ‘The Secret’.

Jon struck me immediately as someone who had great determination to do whatever it took to allow him to be what he was being called to be.

A real warrior with heart.

And the more I have got to know him through extensive mutually inspiring Skype chats,  the more I have seen that this is true.

He has such an amazing clarity and sense of purpose that you can’t help but be inspired by who he is.

We will be taking you on Jon’s journey with him, from his background in martial arts through to the present day. And I really hope you will get a sense of how all the threads are truly coming together in Jon’s work.

He works today sharing a healing modality with people called Meta Medicine and we will be talking about this more extensively on the the radio show. But for now I’d like to share with you Jon’s own words:

META-Medicine**®** is a revolutionary integrative approach to
understanding the stress based root cause, the psychological meaning and
biological process of any illness. It works by using the body’s own
biological survival programming and scientifically maps physical symptoms,
via the brain, back to their primary cause.*

*META-Medicine® is a multi-disciplinary science based on empirical evidence
emerging from more than 30 years of Brain CT Scanning and epi-genetics. It
provides a complete biological-psychological and social evolutionary
health system resulting in a comprehensive understanding of the cause,
meaning and process of any illness. It  has 10 main principles and
redefines our understanding of health, dis-ease, healing and personal
development today.*

Our chat will help you to see how Meta Medicine can be relevant for everyone and give you insight into its practical application. If you feel moved to ask any questions, we’d love to have you call in live.

Jon also  has a blog where he shares thoughts and insights relating to his work and life and I’d really recommend having a look and seeing what he has to say. You can find it at :

And so it’s with great pleasure that I invite you to listen in to the conversation we had together. It goes live on Wednesday March 14th 2012 and after that it’s available in the archive for you to listen to at your leisure. This link takes you right there:

Meeting Spirit to Spirit with Muriel, Singer-Songwriter in Glastonbury

October 13, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

I love being able to connect with wonderfully inspired people and share with you the conversations I have with them. My latest spirit to spirit connection was with Muriel, who is a talented singer-songwriter living in Glastonbury, UK.

It had been several years since I had first heard her sing live at Chalice Well and in the meantime she had been on quite a spiritual journey continuing to create music as she went.

So I loved having the chance to spend a whole day with Muriel, filming, chatting, having lunch and putting our encounter into context so that we could share it with you.

We had a long chat together about her songs and spiritual connection with life, how she grew up and what inspired her to create her albums.  And it was lovely to hear about other passions she has beyond her music.

And there’s a real treat in here too as Muriel sings some of her music for us. She is one of those singers who sounds as good live without any backup as she does on the albums which have been polished and fine-tuned in the studio.

So I’d love to invite you to tune in and listen to Muriel sharing her story and music here – and make sure you return to this post to get all of her contact details below afterwards:

Some of you watching this video may be completely new to Muriel’s music and some of you may have encountered her before. Either way I loved the energy that she brought to this conversation we had and feel that she shared it as if on a first encounter.

You can hear samples from Muriel’s albums on her site called www.murielsings.com

If you’d like to get in touch, you can reach Muriel at:

http://www.murielsings.com

info@murielsings.com

info@FortunaMusic.org

And if you enjoyed watching her on video, please be sure to leave your comments in the box below and let her know. She’d love to hear from you.

And share this post around too, so that more people can get to know Muriel and her beautiful music. Thanks. x

 

 

Meeting Spirit to Spirit with Jennifer Duchene: Blending Lifestyle, Laughter and Butterflies in ‘Le Chic Cocoon’

September 26, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

It’s a real pleasure to be able to introduce you to wonderfully inspiring people on this site and share things with you that I have loved and benefited from.

Today I’m putting the well-deserved spotlight on Jennifer Duchene, a highly creative woman who calls herself the Makeover Mixtress. I recall conversations with her ranging from spirituality, lifestyle and indulging in the senses, as well as all the practicalities of life.  In fact, I don’t think there’s anything you couldn’t have a wonderful conversation with her about.

And I have a real treat to share with you – it’s a conversation we had together where Jen gives you a glimpse into her life, telling you about what inspires her, what’s important to her in life and above all, how she came to write her amazing first book, ‘Le Chic Cocoon – 7 Steps to Creating Your Selfish Space’. It was inspired by Virginia Woolf and how she saw that women needed a room of their own to fully be themselves in. Jen masterfully combines her expert knowledge of design and home living with the spiritual needs of a woman.

I’m including here a short extract from her book which will hopefully give you food for thought and encourage you to read more. And there are details of her upcoming booklaunch as well as information which help you find out more about her work and contact her.

———————————————————————————————–

But first I’d love to invite you to listen in to our conversation:

Click here:  Audio Interview with Jennifer Duchene

———————————————————————————————-

Here is an extract from her book which describes her experience of shifting around elements in a room devoid of energy. I think it’s a fabulous analogy of how to deal with life:

Excerpt from Le Chic Cocoon

‘We look at our problems and think there’s no way we can do this differently. It’s just like looking at a room and thinking there’s no way to move these pieces and make the room look different because it’s never going to work.

Jennifer with her latest book 'Le Chic Cocoon'

I have discovered that we just need to jump in, just decide to do it, and miraculously it works. When I do a room rearrangement, I don’t plan it.

I have no idea what I’m going to do when I get there because I don’t know what needs to be done until I am physically moving the room around. I don’t let myself pre- plan it. It sets up all these pre-conceived ideas and blocks out any chance to be surprised by creating something amazing. When you go into your own life, when you go into a room, just think, well, let’s see what I can do.

Many times, I think to myself, ―I don’t know what I’m going to do here. It’s just such a hard room. How am I going do it? There’s nothing to work with.‖ Then I get stuck in, start moving stuff around, and suddenly everything falls together by itself. Sometimes this is how we need to look at life and our cocoons or potential, without knowing the answers. We just need to make the first move. It’s almost like the river runs the other way, and then you say, “I never would have thought of that”.’

Meeting Spirit to Spirit with Maridel Bowes: Evolutionary Astrology and the Whys of Life

July 27, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

I love being able to interview all these amazing people who have a beautiful spiritual message to share and my latest guest is certainly no exception. Please meet Maridel Bowes, an evolutionary astrologer who has a great love for Hawaii and works with people like you and me, showing us the deeper purpose of why we are here.

Maridel has also published two books and will be talking to you about them in this recording. And many of you will already know her blog, where she shares wonderfully thought-inspiring posts in her very unique, quirky and humourous manner, bringing you spiritual food for thought and an opportunity to deeply reflect.

Note: there’s one small point I wanted to mention here. Maridel made reference to Shakti Gawain saying ‘Trust the process’, when it was actually ‘Follow the energy’.

So I’d like to invite you now to listen to Maridel sharing her story and wisdom with us – enjoy.

Interview with Maridel Bowes

I’m sure many of you will resonate with what Maridel has shared here and so I’d love you to be able to connect with her if you feel so inclined.

Meeting Spirit to Spirit on Video: Kundalini Dance and Conscious Clubbing in Bristol

June 27, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

I am really thrilled to launch my new series today, one I have been thinking about for a long time now and have at last brought to life. Many of you will know that I have begun doing interviews on my blog with lovely people I know who have a spiritual message to share. I’m very grateful for the wonderful feedback I have received after publishing them.

It seemed to me that the next logical step was to share these people on camera and really allow you to appreciate them for who they are.

Today I am thrilled excited to introduce my kundalini yoga teacher,Mark Keane,  who is talking to you in this video about how he weaves his knowledge of the kundalini energy into other events that he offers. Just click on the start button and enjoy.

If you’d like to read the interview I published earlier this year on my blog, here is : Awakening  the Kundalini in Bristol with Mark Keane.

It’s always so valuable to receive feedback and I enjoy it as much as I know all of you do. If you liked this video, I’d love to hear. Please share it around and let others know about it too as this will help to spread the energy of the Cosmic Web in an organic way.

And if you resonated with some of the things Mark talked about and would love to get to know him a bit better, he would love to hear from you too. You can share your thoughts by clicking on Comments below or connect with Mark directly as follows:

Meeting Spirit to Spirit via my new Video Interview Series

June 25, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

I am so excited that a new series of mine is starting off in a few days. When I first started making videos of myself speaking, I really became aware of what an impact it has to be there, face to face, with people who don’t even know you.

It instantaneously creates a huge bond and opens the channel for trust and acceptance.

So I realised that this would be a wonderful way to introduce some lovely people to you who have a spiritual message to share and who are part of my vibrant, growing network. Each interview is presented in the form of a chat, which gives me the chance to ask them all sorts of questions about their work. This in turn gives you, the viewer, a great insight into their work as well as a glimpse into their personal world and lets you really meet them spirit to spirit.

There will be some I can’t meet in person and so, as an alternative, I’ll be doing audio interviews with them so that you have the chance of connecting with them through their voices. This is also a very magical way of tuning into people and enjoying their presence.

I’d love to encourage you to engage with these featured guests and ask questions below or let them know if you enjoyed watching. It’s really inspiring to get feedback and keeps the dialogue alive.

I look forward to sharing the launch of this on Monday and hope you’ll enjoy watching these videos as much as I enjoy making them.

Thank you for being there.

Namaste.

Meeting Spirit to Spirit on the Cosmic Web: Tareth – Spiritual Teacher and Healer

May 03, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

A very warm welcome to the first in my series of audio interviews with people who have inspired me. You’re about to listen to me meeting spirit to spirit with Tareth, spiritual healer and teacher who lives in the Isle of Avalon.

Tareth is perhaps known to some of you through his public manifestations of workshops on sound healing or his Blessings from the Source where often perfumed oil is manifested. But his work encompasses much more than this.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Tareth during the time I lived in Glastonbury, when I worked with and for him organising  spiritual events and keeping the day to day tasks in order.

I have fond memories of workshops on sound healing, angels and tuning into ancient civilisations, as well as spiritual retreats in the summer months that were both fun and transformational. But I’d love you to listen to Tareth talking about these things in his own words.

Please click on this link to hear me meeting Tareth spirit to spirit:

Meeting Spirit to Spirit on the Cosmic Web: Tareth – Spiritual Teacher and Healer

I hope you enjoy this conversation and would love you to leave your comments in the box below. If you’d like to find out more about Tareth’s work, ask him any questions or book a place at one of his workshops, please contact him at this email address and have a look at his website:

tareth@tarethlight.co.uk

You can also contact Tareth’s assistant Helen on 01458-833929. Please leave a message if no-one is there and you will be called back as soon as possible.

Creating a Spiritual Online Community

April 27, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

It’s been a long while since I posted anything on the site and that is due to many things. The most important of that being that I was redefining everything I have online, giving it all a new look and feel. I was basically rebranding myelf, if that makes sense.

This was all part of an amazing social media course (SNCC) that I did and completed, which enabled me to get much more organised with all my sites, giving it all a much more organic character than it had before. It also taught me to regard myself as the key element in defining my online presence and I gained much more visibility through letting my own authentic voice be heard instead of hiding behind products or trying to sell to people. This is something I will continue to do as I proceed with my projects.

I created a central hub from which to operate and gave my own name to that site. You can find it at http://fionastolze.com. From there you can find your way to everything else which I do. And I find that focus fabulous. I have also been working a lot with video and that is why I have now embedded an introductory video on the homepage of this site.

I feel much more empowered as a result of taking this course and I have eliminated a lot of the scattered elements that were just distracting from my central themes.

Now that I have the core in place, I am beginning to put other structures in place. And I am now committed to continuing with this project, too. After the initial attempts at looking at properties with the purpose of setting up a physical centre. I see much more clearly that the way forward is truly to create a huge online network and just allow things to develop from there.

One part of this will involve me interviewing lots of people who inspire me. Today I published the first interview in this ongoing series, called ‘Meeting Spirit to Spirit’, which I found very appropriate.

You can see the interview of Mark Keane, kundalini yoga teacher in Bristol, by following this link.

My next step is to begin conducting interviews with people and publishing these as audio recordings (podcasts), which you can listen to again and again. I see that this will go a long way towards creating a beautiful network and drawing people to this centre to connect and find out more.

The first interview has already been made and is just awaiting my editing skills to enhance it slightly.

So I am very excited about the new lease of life this project has taken on. Everything always happens in perfect timing and I think I needed to travel around the block a few times before feeling I had really got clear on what I wanted to share.

I hope you will accompany me further on this journey and share your comments, feedback and ideas with me as I go.

Thanks for being there.

Namaste.
