Jane Talbot TV

As part of my 365 Days Of Adventure project, I made a 9-episode LIVE television series earlier in 2014. I’ve posted all 9 episodes here for you to watch : I hope you’ll enjoy watching them as much as I enjoyed making them.

I run regular FREE webinars on a range of subject. You can check out what’s going on webinar-wise here.

Brilliant Friends TV


From Wednesday 16th April – Friday 25th April 2014, I tried my hand at making a TV series as part of my 365 Days Of Adventure project. To make this adventure possible, my friends agreed to help me out by letting me interview them. As someone who has worked in the field of personal development for a very long time, I know that we often seek inspiration, information and advice from so-called gurus (many of whom we have never met and with whom we have no personal connection). I’m beginning to realise that there is a rich source of advice and inspiration much closer to home : my circle of friends! Over the course of 9 short programmes (each show will last 30-60 minutes), I introduce you to my friends. They’re a diverse, talented and inspiring bunch, and I learedn new things about them just by interviewing them in this way. Even setting up the interviews brought new life and depth to my connection with each one of them. I hope you enjoy the sharing of friendship, information, inspiration and advice (and I wonder if it may even encourage you to acknowledge , and celebrate, the significance of your own friendships 🙂 ).

oonaEpisode 3 : Fanning The Flames ~ Friday 18th April at 10.30am. Today I’m talking to Oona McFarlane , fire-walk instructor, reiki master teacher,  healer and coach. I’ve done several (brilliant) fire-walks with Oona (which also involved using my neck to break an arrow) and I think I know her fairly well (having sat next to her in just my pants in a sweat lodge one snowy December in the grounds of her holistic centre in Scotland). In this programme, Oona will talk about her fascination for, and her relationship with, fire. If she had to update her Facebook relationship with fire , it would read “it’s complicated” :). During our chat, Oona will explain what happens at a fire-walk event and how the fire-walk metaphor can support life transitions and personal transformation.

tiffEpisode 7 : From Pursuit To Presence ~ Friday 2nd May 10.30am. Today’s guest is my friend Tiffany Kay : author, transformational coach, pub quiz champion extraordinaire and liver of the “Good Life” (she grows her own vegetables and keeps chickens in her garden in the NW of England). In this programme, Tiff will be talking about her soon-to-be-published book  “From Pursuit to Presence” . Her book’s key message  is that most of us are living under a misguided cloud of unworthiness that dominates much of our thinking and behaviour outside of our conscious awareness. That’s what causes us to pursue life : our pursuit is an attempt to close the illusionary gap. Tiffany suggests that when we reconnect to the inherent worth we were born with, all the struggle and suffering disappears. We can let life come to us; a life which is joyful and contented. If you’d welcome some top tips for becoming more present to your own true nature and more present to life, you’ll love this show!
