    Episode 9: Changing Habits and Breaking Old Patterns


    There is an insightful quote from Tuli Kupferberg that says “When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge”. This might be true, but how does one navigate the journey from the “ah” moment of realizing that an old pattern doesn’t serve you to creating a space for something more advantageous to come into your life?


    During our time together today, Madonna MacInnis, our new host Shelley Boutacoff, and I will tackle the following questions:



    What old pattern are you breaking now? 
    How are you doing it? 
    Are you able to laugh at yourself as you move through the process? 
    What "new worlds" are emerging for you as you smash through your old pattern? 


    We will also each offer tips for successfully breaking old patterns in your life. You’ll love it!

    Episode 7: Do you Find It Hard to Trust Yourself?


    Peg O’Connor, Ph.D., published an article in Psychology Today that tackles the soul sapping impact of continually breaking promises to yourself. She likens this cycle of not trusting self to an addiction; an addiction to self-sabotage. 


    In this episode, we’ll look at four aspects of SELF-TRUST: 



    What is self-trust? 
    How is breaking promises to yourself (over and over again) limiting the quality of your life?
    What are the practical and soul-supporting benefits of trusting self? 
    Where do we find the courage to nurture self-trust everyday?  


    Your hosts, Mildred Lynn McDonald and Madonna MacInnis, will also share personal vignettes from their sincere and ever evolving relationship with self-trust. You’ll love it!

    Episode #6: Understanding How to Hold Space for Yourself and Others


    Heather Plett wrote a beautiful piece about holding space called What it means to 'hold space' for people, plus eight tips on how to do it well.  It was sensationally popular with far reaching impact because it was honest, true, insightful … and straight from the heart.


    In this episode, Mildred Lynn McDonald and Madonna MacInnis will skillfully build on the universal concept of holding space by exploring four key attributes: 1. Letting go of judgement 2. Opening your heart. 3. Allowing another to have whatever experience that are having in the moment. 4. Giving your complete undivided attention to the situation or other person.  In addition, they will generously share their personal thoughts, foibles and learnings about the art and decipline of “holding space”.  You’ll love it!

    Episode #35: Connecting the Dots to Who Your Really Are. Illuminate. Simplify. Align™ with Trilby D. Johnson


    Recently, I had a great chat with New Zealand-based author, Body-Brain Reformer, Speaker, and founder of Connective Embodiment™, Trilby D. Johnson. To say that Trilby has a unique perspective and a burning passion for mind-body-spirit integration would be an understatement, so I invited Trilby to share her message with us!


    In Trilby’s words, she "mentors people from all around the world and all walks of life who suffer from chronic emotional and/or physical pain to transmute their energy and rewire their brain, so they can release their limiting patterns and the chronic pain with it. Thus, their life can be free of pain, suffering, stress and self-limiting beliefs”. How does she do this? Are there skills and tools that she can share with us? Stories and real life examples to inspire us? 


    Please join us as we learn about Body-Brain Reform, Vibrational Integration, and Connective Embodiment™ ... all wrapped up in Trilby’s warm sense of humour and ready laughter. Trilby will also inspire us with quotes from her book a-Ha Insight Inspiration Question. You’ll love it!

    Walk the Talk to Health & Well Being with Dr. Glenna and Mildred Lynn McDonald

    in Lifestyle

    Episode 6: Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) in the Elderly - Adding Naturopathic Medicine to the Healing Equation 


    According to research, Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is the second most common infection presenting in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.  This being so, there is an excellent opportunity for mainstream (allopathic) and naturopathic practitioners to work together to find the best solution for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of UTIs.


    In this episode, Dr Glenna Calder, ND and I will explore UTIs as they specifically relate to the health and well being of our loved ones who reside in long-term care facilities. Together, we will tackle what causes UTIs, common symptoms, at risk individuals and treatment options (including antibiotics, probiotics, D-mannose, greens, cranberry, acid/alkaline balance and others). Since reoccurrence of UTIs is common in the elderly, Dr Glenna will offer her professional guidance on how to best break the UTI cycle with practical preventative measures. 


    As always, the information offered is for your consideration. It is our hope that you will use it to facilitate proactive and informed conversations with the health care team responsible for providing your elderly loved one with the best UTI care available in your location. Dr Glenna Calder ND is registered with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors. Please note that the information presented is general in nature. If you have a UTI, please seek the help of a medical professional.

    Episode #33:  What it means to HOLD SPACE for people with special guest HEATHER PLETT


    Many of us have heard the expression to "hold the space” for someone, but until now, I haven’t come across much information on what holding the space actually looks like, especially when caring for a loved one who is transitioning into the last stages of life. Enter Manitoba-based teacher, writer, coach, retreat host, and facilitator, HEATHER PLETT.  


    When I read Heather’s blog, I realized that she was able to lovingly articulate key concepts about the gift of "holding space" gleaned through her own life experience, specifically, the passing of her mother. 


    During our time together, Heather will explore eight life lessons that she has learned from the amazing people who have held the space for her. They include: 1. Giving people permission to trust their own intuition and wisdom. 2. Giving people only as much information as they can handle. 3. Not taking power away. 4. Keeping your own ego out of it. 5. Making people feel safe enough to fail. 6. Giving guidance and help with humility and thoughtfulness. 7. Creating a container for complex emotions, fear, trauma, etc. 8. Allowing people to make different decisions and have different experiences than you would.  Thank you Heather for doing this beautiful work!

    Episode #34:  Reclaiming the Wild Soul: How Earth’s Landscapes Restore Us to Wholeness with special guest MARY REYNOLDS THOMPSON


    Mary is an author, facilitator of poetry and journal therapy, and certified life coach who helps people discover and live their WILD SOUL STORY so they can bridge the false divide between outer and inner nature, Earth and Self, and become full creative, connected and alive.


    Join us as she introduces her new book RECLAIMING THE WILD SOUL and takes us on a fascinating journey into Earth’s five great landscapes — deserts, forests, oceans and rivers, mountains, and grasslands — as they reveal timeless aspects of our deeper, wilder selves. Luxuriate in the Earth's wild beauty and fierce challenges. See how deserts model simplicity and silence, how forests help us make peace with uncertainty, how rivers and oceans reveal the power of flow, how mountains inspire our highest purpose, and how grasslands teach us about giving back.


    Discover how Mary's work connects people to nature--and their own inner nature—through what she calls WILD LANGUAGE—the way the Earth speaks to us in metaphors and symbols about our lives and purpose. You'll love it!


    ROUND TABLE with HiC Luttmers, John Carosella and Mildred Lynn: “Being GENEROUS often consists of simply extending a hand. That’s hard to do if you are grasping tightly to your righteousness, your belief system, your superiority, your assumptions about others, your definition of normal.” — Patti Digh.   Get ready for a fun, energetic discussion!

    Episode #5: Are you a Scanner?


    In her book, Refuse to Choose award-winning author Barbara Sher talks about “scanners”; people who have so many interests that they’re unable to choose only one. According to Sher, scanners aren’t dilettantes or undisciplined, and they don’t change interests because of A.D.D. or a fear of success. “They seem to be highly intelligent, multi-talented people who need to have more interests than the average person.” As you can imagine, this topic really hit a nerve with people when the book was published and caused a huge sigh of relief from many wonderful individuals struggling to make sense if their scanner-wired life (gasp!). 


    Join your hosts, Mildred Lynn and Madonna MacInnis as they share their personal insights and real life stories about the amazing world of scanners (or to use another term “multi-potential-ites”).  You’ll also enjoy their heart-centered exploration of three key questions: "What is a scanner?", "What isn’t a scanner?”,  and "How do you navigate life (feel good about yourself) from a scanner perspective?”. You’ll love it!
