EP-10: Why Bother? Because Self­‐Help is Never Stupid with Martha Du’Sage

Life on Purpose Episode #10 is a heart-centered conversation with writer, speaker, and teacher Martha Du’Sage, the best-selling author of Why Bother? Because Self­‐Help is Never Stupid in which we discuss abuse, suffering, heart­‐centered consciousness, forgiveness, and healing. Martha has stepped through the looking glass of dysfunction and sexual abuse to discover, what we can all discover, an end to suffering. I believe that we can’t fully live our life “on purpose” if we don’t deal with wounds from the past and so I thought this was an important conversation to have.

EP-02: Eric Maisel on Life Purpose Book Camp and Creating a Meaningful Life

Dr. Eric Maisel is a bestselling author, psychotherapist, and creativity coach. He’s the author of 40 books on a wide variety of subjects, from the challenges of living the creative life to natural psychology, the new psychology of meaning; those books including Fearless Creating, The Van Gogh Blues, and Coaching the Artist Within. A licensed psychotherapist, he reaches thousands through his Psychology Today and Fine Art America blogs, his print column in Professional Artist magazine, and workshops in the United States and abroad. He’s an advocate for a changed and revitalized view of mental health services, one that does away with our current mental disorder naming system. He’s also an advocate for a global paradigm shift from seeking meaning to making meaning, a very crucial distinction that we’ll talk about in-depth.

EP-01: Emiliya Zhivotovskaya and the Science of Flourishing

Emiliya Zhivotovskaya is a leading voice in the world of positive psychology and the science of flourishing. She’s a widely sought-after speaker, educator, facilitator, and coach. Jonathan Fields says, “she offers that astonishingly rare blend of deep insight, wisdom beyond her years, a fierce grounding in science and the heart of a teacher.” At the age of 5, Emiliya and her family fled from Kiev, escaping the fall of Communism and the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl. She found herself in a new land, faced with challenges completely foreign to the average kid growing up in a New York suburb. Then, 9 years later, she faced yet another tragedy, the sudden loss of her brother as he ran to save his fiancé from drowning and lost his life in the process of saving hers. And years later, the loss of her mother.
