Episode #217 | JOEY WILSON | Singer Songwriter | Consultant

Joey Wilson is an organizational consultant, designer, tinkerer and singer / songwriter. In 1984, Joey's father, Larry Wilson, in what he would later describe as a failed attempt at retirement, purchased a 2000-acre ranch along the Pecos River.

They would christen it The Pecos River Learning Center - a 2000-acre classroom and a learning space so large that it couldn’t hold a small idea. The center became an experiential learning facility where individuals could reinvent themselves, and, in turn, the organizations for which they worked. And the center of that center was a huge and terrifying ropes course.
For Joey, the family business was like a graduate course in organizational development and would later cofound CultureLogic, a consulting firm that continues to help organizations optimize their culture.

With one foot firmly planted in the business world, his other lifelong passion is music and songwriting, a craft he has been tweaking for over 30 years. He says this balance between business and art is what has allowed him to keep his heart engaged in both.

Episode #215 | Jake and Hannah Eagle | "Conscious Language"

Jake and Hannah Eagle.jpg

There are many ways of coming home to ourselves.  Yoga,  meditation, qigong and tai chi and dozens more. When we recognize and acknowledge that we are the center of our reality, and that we see our story from only our perspective, we can live more consciously by changing the way we think and the way we speak. Language can be used to raise or lower our consciousness.

Jake and Hannah Eagle, who founded and co-lead “live conscious” retreats, suggest that when we consciously use our language, which shapes the meaning of our experience, we live from the inside out. And when we do this in a group, silently witnessed by others, our experience of taking full responsibility for shaping our lives is validated exponentially.

Hannah Eagle has been a classical homeopath for 20 years with a private practice in Santa Fe. She now works with her husband, Jake Eagle, teaching courses and retreats called Live Conscious.

Jake Eagle has been a licensed psychotherapist for the past 25 years, but he now refers to what he does as Conscious Mentoring. In 2010 he wrote an award winning book called ReRight  Your Life. 

Currently, Jake and Hannah teach their Live Conscious retreats and courses to people around the world—in New Mexico, Mexico, Hawaii and Japan.

Episode #53 | Hella Neumann | Family Constellation

It has been said that Our roots are our branches. The concept of ancestors has been eliminated from our culture, and there IS a "family soul."  The family constellation is the language of the soul, a group experience that produces remarkable insights and healing.

"Children seldom or never dare to live a happier or more fulfilling life than their parents. Unconsciously they remain loyal to unspoken family traditions that work invisibly. Family Constellations are a way of discovering underlying family bonds and forces that have been carried unconsciously over several generations."

                                             -Bertold Ulsamer

Systemic Family Constellations respond to the longing that is deeply imbedded in our souls to live in the wholeness of our ancestral line. The family soul is a highly sensitive energetic field in which all who belong to a family are connected in love, including those who are forgotten or not honored, were mentally ill, or miscarried, or who died prematurely or violently. Only when all these are looked at and honored, and receive their respected place in the family system, can there be peace. Until they are seen again, we are entangled in their fate and carry their burdens – in the form of physical illness, depression, eating disorders, panic attacks, or conflicts in our personal or professional relationships.
