Join me as I speak with today’s visionary leaders and social change artists, exploring relevant positive messages of personal and social development. The JourneysFire weekly podcast will inspire, enlighten and challenge you with new ways of thinking and being. I created the name “JourneysFire” after being inspired by the following quote:
Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, humanity will have discovered fire.— Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Wonderful conversation with the extraordinary Richard Brendan about The Boy Who Died and Came Back for his radio show. Richard gets to the soul of what matters. He got me talking, without inhibitions.
