Our guest today is Jules Bright. Jules is a New Zealand native, a Mother, Registered Nurse, Registered Naturopath, Medical Herbalist, Rongoa  practitioner(Maori Bush Medicine), Ambulance Officer, Reiki Master, Shamanic Practitioner, Remedial Body Therapist, Skin care designer, developer and manufacturer (100% natural rainforest based, patent pending), Teacher (Reflexology, bush medicine and bush survival courses), Entrepreneur and Author, plus she flies airplanes!

It has been made known to her on several occasions that Now is the Time to share some of the knowledge she’s accumulated , as the Earth is in danger.


“The way we are living is not sustainable for Planet Earth or her inhabitants”, Jules says. She has a vision to come together as a global community and activate change through our human potential – in the best way possible; to co-create your life into the Dream Life that we have always wanted. Jules plugged in to her Higher Knowledge and ever since has ‘downloaded’ potent and powerful information that we require for our ascension with the Planet, utilising our gifts and talents collectively.


I met Jules at The New Earth Festival in Bali where she was presenting a workshop entitled “Sacred Earth Medicine”. I was immediately struck by her presence when I saw her photo in the program, and then I went to her workshop. I took pages of notes as everything she spoke of was so intriguing for me. She spoke of plants, earth medicine, wild food and cycles in a way I had not heard from anyone before. Jules calls herself a self appointed voice for the trees. Listen to our conversation and you’ll understand why.


I feel so blessed I got this time with her as everyone at the festival was vying for her attention. And after the interview we sat and drank coconuts together for a couple hours as she told me one unbelievable jaw dropping story after another, about the adventure that has been her life.

This woman seriously needs to have a movie made about her extraordinary life experiences..

So for now, take a listen and see if you can find some inspiration in the unique insights and sharing from the one and only, Jules Bright.

Greetings Rainbow Warriors, I’m coming to you from beautiful Paradis Plage in Morocco today, where I’m working with the chefs to create a new conscious eating yogi menu, as well as teaching yoga and workshops. It’s a magical place right on the beach in the front of the beautiful Atlantic ocean with warm sunshine every day, and I’m feeling so blessed to be here doing what I love.

Maybe we’ll put together a retreat here, wanna come? ;)

Our guest today is Justin Stearman. Justin is the owner of Yoga Guide Magazine and Yoga Guide Media, a conscious lifestyle media company. Justin spent 10 years in nightlife, promoting parties and alcohol. When he turned 30 he took a year off and spent a lot of time meditating. With a nudge from the women in his life, he went to a yoga retreat that changed everything. He had  a huge awakening when he says his 3rd eye opened, and has learned since then, that yoga is a natural high. Justin is a living example of transformation from a low vibration lifestyle to a high vibration lifestyle. He’s moved literally from the darkness to the light.  His personal transformation has birthed a new company to promote a healthy conscious lifestyle that is lifting the vibration on the planet worldwide..

I met Justin at The New Earth Festival in Bali. I had been seeing his Yoga Guide Magazine around and wanted to meet the man behind it. Next thing I knew,  Spirit put us in the same room, and fortunately we made the time to do this interview.

This is Justin’s story. I hope you find some inspiration here and enjoy this conversation as much as I did. It’s a tale of transformation, gratitude and and evolving consciousness.

Greetings from Morocco beloved community. This is the first show in a new season of the podcast, so if you haven’t heard the previous seasons, go back and enjoy some of those episodes, there’s a lot of value for you there, I promise.

Today’s guest is Jenna Ansell. Jenna is a conscious event producer and the director of the New Earth Ancient Futures Festival in Bali.

This year marks the first New Earth Festival, and to understand what it’s about, take in this bit from their website:

“As a Planetary Community we are experiencing healing (evolutionary) crises in every aspect of our lives and we need to endow ourselves with the tools to navigate this transition on both the personal and trans-personal level. We are compelled to come together to connect and create tangible solutions to what does not serve us as individuals or as communities for the benefit of all humanity.

The aim of the NewEarth Festival is to provide a space to do this through the co-creation of an alchemical environment in play, celebration, nourishment, healing, learning and teaching. We hope to ignite the spark in those who attend so they can in turn ignite the spark in others. We hope to nurture the sovereign creative expression within us all.

This is a seed event for visionary creatives, change makers, and thought leaders who can be bridge-builders between communities across the world and thereby inspire others. It is a gathering of the tribes where imagination manifests as reality and the unthinkable becomes the norm. It is a change of perspectives, values and priorities in a world of infinite possibility.”


Now I was there and I can attest that this is exactly what happened. Jenna and the team there truly did create a space to help activate people’s highest potential and the sparks were indeed flying, as you’ll hear in our conversation.


Jenna speaks of being the change and creating the world that we want, exactly the aim of this show, so it was of course a huge yes for me to attend and have these conversations with the souls who created, or I’m going to use the world “channeled” this event into existence.


In the interview we take a deep dive into the purpose of this festival that is so heavy into earth wisdom, deep nutrition, awareness and liminality.


I hope you find some inspiration in this conversation and by the end of it you may just be booking your ticket to Bali for the next one.


As usual, show notes are found on my website, as well as in itunes.

“Absolutely everybody has a light inside of them, it’s a matter of whether or not it’s been sparked.”

Greetings beloved community, rainbow warriors, visionaries and change makers! I’m so pleased to be bringing you a fresh new season of The Visionary Lifestyle Podcast.

This is the 4th season of the show, and like the last one, all of the interviews were done in Bali, but this time at The New Earth Ancient Futures Festival. A one of a kind gathering especially for visionaries, thought leaders and changemakers like yourselves.

I interviewed the producers and many of the presenters so you can have a taste of Bali and all the magic that happens when a group of activated conscious people come together. We are indeed, more than the sum of our parts.

I was proud to be invited to share my Conscious Eating message there, and grateful for the people that received it so well and pledged to make changes to make every bite an expression of love for themselves, the animals and the planet.

This gathering was a group of people who are truly being the change, and inspiring others to be as well.

I met incredible people at this gathering and am so excited to be bringing them to you through the show.

My biggest take-away from this season as that at it’s core, everything is vibration. You’ll hear conversations with an assortment of people that all come to this conclusion from a different angle.

There’s really fascinating stuff coming up for you in this season! You know I love hearing from you so drop me an email at I want to hear your comments and questions.

Until then, please enjoy the show and share share share it with your communities. We all need to spread the word to get our brothers and sisters on the path of awakening. Thank you for your support.

Donations to support the show are always appreciated and are best made at patreon or paypal, and I’ll put links in the shownotes for those.

And now, onto the show…..enjoy and namaste
