This is the first episode of a new morning radio-show I’ve called Coming Alive. It’s a combination of my passion for sharing undiscovered music and uplifting spoken word insights that happen to flow through me when I dare to let them out.
I’ll be honest in saying I am terrified sharing this with you as it’s new territory I haven’t fully explored before. I feel vulnerable, walking the plank of my own creative unknown. That being said, I can also sense that this is a wonderful way to share my vision for the future and ultimately one of the best ways to improve my craft. My aim is to enhance your morning experience, giving you pep in your step and a boost of clarity towards your vision in becoming a better more authentically aligned and alive human being.
Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section as I’m still learning and growing and would love to hear from you.
It’s incredible to live a life that’s terrifying. For years I’ve intentionally been living in the living room of my parents house, pushing through the shadows of fear and doubt about where it was all leading. I knew deep down I had found my soul calling, my reason to serve humanity. But I’ll tell you, it’s incredibly hard to find your way in a world that’s trying to ensure you stay on the predictable path of expectation and endless accumulation of wealth, status and material possession.
I believe it’s difficult because we live in a distracted society, one that’s actively separating us from Continue reading
This inspiring unreleased video message is only available for you as a reader of Inspiralight. It’s about turning fear into love as we’ve received feedback from some of the global leaders helping with our upcoming global sing-along project and fear has been a returning factor. We trust this will inspire and uplift your day!

We’d never attempted something of this size before, the social experiment was to see if we could inspire hundreds of strangers to dance like nobody was watching in public. We prepared a giant moving sound system as seen in this picture and rolled into the centre of town with turbo charged butterflies in our stomachs.
It was Friday night, shops were open late, work had just finished, high heels and work shoes clicked across the pavement as thousands of people hustled through the centre of town. We’d arranged Continue reading
I took a number of risks in presenting this speech at TEDx Perth to over 1500 of Perth’s most influential people at the red carpeted Perth Concert Hall. Moments before jumping on stage I was supposed to be getting ready, rehearsing my speech but instead I was rallying troops backstage to surprise the entire audience flashmob style with a last minute concept I was sure was going to transform the speech into something worth talking about (Be sure to watch till the end if you want to find out what happens for a first time on TED!).
The speech itself is only 15 minutes long and takes a concise look at 3 of my most influential pieces of work and how they’ve gone on to effecting the world & myself personally. I dive into the idea of how my experiment trusting others in public has exploded into a global movement for peace, how dancing with others on a train changed my life forever & the way in which sharing eye contact in public allows for humans to participate in rebuilding our sense of peace on earth.
I am honoured to be running The Liberators International & look forward to sharing more great moments by cultivating global sense of community with you shortly.
There is a peace that naturally forms between beings when we recognise ourselves in the other. War is not possible from this place. Just one minute can take you and I there. Just last month, over 100,000 people in 150 different cities tried it for themselves as a way to rebuild a sense of human connection in public. How? No words, no judgement, just one minute of eye contact.
Emotion Flowing in Mexico City
We’ve just come home from an epic adventure through Europe and now, our latest event “The World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment” has exploded across the planet. More than 20,000 people from over 50 cities have united for our next event on the 15th of October. If there was ever a time to stand up to participate in creating an inspiring global video message for the world now would be that time!
I warmly invite you to represent your country at a local Liberator event in your city or host your own event by reading this info pack here.
Here’s the list of participating cities so far… Continue reading
The Winter Monday morning blues instantly dissolved in Perth, Australia as an entire carriage of passengers spontaneously joined The Liberators in singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow on their way to work this week!
Where Did the Idea Come From?
We came up with the idea after noticing a common thread of isolation in today’s society. This video aims to address the vulnerability that is often avoided in making sustained eye contact with members of the public. Holding eye contact with another person can evoke many feelings which can be scary, especially when in today’s society we tend to repress our deepest emotions. It calls on true courage to trust another being to see you and accept you just as you are, in a complete state of vulnerability. We also noticed that making eye contact with strangers is commonly intertwined with the idea of unwanted sexual attention. We believe eye contact is much deeper and far more meaningful than anything a sleaze might be able to bring to it. So instead of complaining about this misrepresentation we found an inspiring way to allow members of the public to actively participate in the other side of the story.
After our first global trust event we’ve had people from all over the world asking how they can participate in our next public action so we’ve decided to create a global database of Liberators who are ready to participate in our next global train dance party! When you sign up you will be put in contact with other liberators in your city, you will be the first to find out about global events & you will have the chance to gift your unique skills to making global impact.
