The Next Chapter with Charlie

While Charlie is in Africa (working on the WELLS OF LIFE charity project), let's revisit some of our most popular recent guests. Like Michaela Renee Johnson. Michaela Renee Johnson practices and preaches a life of excitement, joy and (most of all) happiness.  Which leads Charlie to happily remind us all in this episode that "yes, we are STILL allowed to pursue happiness...even in these troubled and turbulent times!" Michaels is a breath of fresh air in this episode. And a true "happiness expert". Having built a whole movement around this topic through her book "Be You, Be Happy". ...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   We are in for a real treat today. I have already spent nearly three hours of discussion regarding Your Artistic Identity with our very special guest, Dr. Stephanie Allen. My problem today is not regarding “what I want to talk about,” but what I have to leave out because Stephanie has so much wisdom to share. Stephanie Allen holds a Doctorate in Musical Arts from the University of Minnesota. She teaches violin to students of all ages in her school Violin Technique Coaching. But Stephanie’s expertise is not exclusively regrading violin or music in general. She...

#245 NEW Lindsay Davis- Clues for a Meaningful and Memorable Life show art #245 NEW Lindsay Davis- Clues for a Meaningful and Memorable Life

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes   Just about one month ago we did a show with one of my very favorite people, Creative Business and Performance Coach, Lindsay Davis. For those interested, that was show #238 on the very important subject of Detachment. It was all about how to emotionally detach from stress-inducing situations. As we neared the end of the episode, we realized that a follow-up session might be very helpful and offer clarity on a subject very dear to all of us: how do we discover our purpose in life. Now… this is a tricky discussion because there seems (to me) to be two kinds of purposes: One...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Well, it’s my first day back from 3 weeks in Portugal. I am rested and ready to go. Today’s show is sort of a last-minute idea because we feared I would be hampered by jetlag, but that is not the case. I am so happy to say that my dear friend, Rand Sperry was available to have a discussion on a subject very dear to both of us—basically it’s all about how to optimize “old age” before you reach “Old, old age.” Haha In the 2020’s we have an entirely different concept of old age than we did 50 years ago. 50 years ago, 60 was considered old. Today that is not the...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Hey Paul. We are so fortunate today to have as a guest my “reluctant to do podcasts” wife. After more than 200 episodes she has come on the show with me only one time—and that was from Italy, probably 3 or 4 years ago. Today is special. We haven’t seen each other in more than 10 days and have probably talked on the phone only three times… because she and her friends have been sooo busy. Pam and I have different ideas of the ideal vacation. Although I do like some activity and sightseeing, I must have time to rest and do nothing. Pam’s idea of rest only comes with...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Hey Paul. Today, instead of sitting with you in studio, right now I am sitting on my sofa in my apartment in Lisbon, Portugal. I was out today roaming the town and finding myself surrounded by throngs of tourists. Man, I have a distaste for crowds. And I do have a bit of frustration with tourists that expect nationals to behave in ways that suit their personal desires. Life is different in a foreign country and, truthfully, that is precisely what makes a foreign country so attractive—it is “foreign.” This is a different kind of trip for me. I am spending more time in my...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  My special guest today, Dr. Andrew Hahn has just released a new book, titled “The One Hour Miracle.” And I must tell you… as skeptical as I am about such seemingly… shall we say, “far-reaching” proclamations, Andy has pioneered a process called Life-Centered Therapy that just might get you there. You will soon discover that Andy is one of the smartest guests we’ve ever had on the show… maybe that’s why he’s a Harvard grad. Andy Hahn got my attention when he told me that “our life’s work is about the revelation of who we really are.” So, without any...

The Next Chapter with Charlie

Show Notes  Today is a dramatic departure from the normal format of our podcast. That because today my, friend Cara Stewart, will host the show as she interviews me as a guest on my own podcast. Initially, I invited Cara to be a guest on the show but after she and I discussed possible topics she came up with the question, “Hey, Charlie. Has anyone ever interviewed you on your show? To which my response was, “Well, not really.” After just a few moments of thought, I said, “Let’s give it shot.” So here we are. Fortunately, Cara Steward in an excellent host: she is a former...

Show Notes 

Guess what? Our good friend Terry Hershey has a new book titled “This Is the Life.” I just received a copy a couple days ago and have read through it. It is really good. I think the subtitle explains much about the content: The full title reads, “This Is the Life: Mindfulness, Finding Grace and the Power of the Present Moment.”

I know much has been written on mindfulness and living in the present, but Terry indeed offers a fresh perspective on the subject. For me, it is NOT so much a “how to” book and is it a “why to” book. I found the book a most refreshing read attempting to restore us from our frenetic, hectic and chaotic daily lives.

It is filled with stories, anecdotes, and references to masters, especially in the spiritual world. And by spiritual I am not talking about religion but about otherworldliness. Personally I a much attracted to the notion of finding grace in the power of the present moment.

But most of us that reside in cities and suburbs are inundated with a driving need to accomplish, “to add value, ”to be forward thinking, and then, unfortunately, to raise our children to follow the same lifestyle.

But I am giving away too much of our content for discussion today. For those few listeners that are not familiar with Terry Hershey he is a most popular public speaker—in fact I consider Terry to be one the most enjoyable and impactful pubic speakers I have ever heard. He is also, obviously, an author of more than a dozen books, and landscape architect and probably most importantly a gardener (of a 2 acre garden) in which he cares for diligently and with great grace and devotion.
