Adventure 122 ~ Jane’s Brilliant Friends [Episode 7]

In this rescheduled episode of “Jane’s Brilliant Friends”, I’m talking to Tiffany Kay : author and transformational coach . In this programme, Tiff talsks 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.

In our conversation, Tiffany shares her own journey from pursuit to presence and offers some simple yet effective ways to become more present to who we really are and to life. The free video series she mentions can be found here.

Adventure 111 ~ Jane’s Brilliant Friends [Episode 4]

Today we meet my brilliant friend, David Orchard! David is a wine expert and our conversation today is all about cutting through the hype of a Bordeaux wine label so that we can make better informed purchase decisions.

It’s been a while since I’ve drunk any wine from Bordeaux : a few disappointing (and expensive purchases) were enough to put me off. David explains, in a really informative and entertaining way, how the marketing of wine can really interfere with our decision- making processes( and limit out opportunity for positive wine-tasting experiences). He also shares some top tips for buying wine from this famous wine region.

I’ve put some helpful links below the video to help with your wine-exploring adventures! You can find out more about David, and check out the full schedule of shows, over at Jane Talbot TV.

Adventure 101 ~ Hosting A Daily TV Show

Brilliant Friends TVFor today’s adventure, I’ve been busy setting up the schedule for my very first TV series! You can view the schedule , along with details of each of the 9 episodes here.

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 15-30 minutes), I’ll be introducing you to my friends. They’re a diverse, talented and inspiring bunch and I’m sure I’ll learn new things about them just by interviewing them in this way. Even setting up the interviews, and writing the short programme thumbnails,  has brought new life and depth to my connection with each one of them. I hope you’ll 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 🙂 ).

The show will run from Wednesday 16th – Friday 25th of April and now I’m feeling a little more organised, the excitement and sense of adventure is beginning to grow! I have the feeling of walking over the edge and I like it! 🙂

As I waited for today’s video to upload, I realised something that made me smile. Even thinking about adventure, dreaming about adventure and planning adventure feels like the real deal.
