The Mosaic Podcast

Daniel Bruce Levin

I have had the incredible opportunity to be friends with some of the richest people in the world and the grace to sit on streets corner with the poorest of the poor and what I have seen is that everyone wants the same thing. It doesn’t matter how much money they have, what religion they practice, the color their skin, or what border they live behind, everyone I have met wants to be loved and accepted, listened to and heard and acknowledged and validated. The Mosaic Podcast gives voice to those who have no voice and to those who are using their voice to uplift humanity.

Every moment is sacred including the less preferable ones. Life is a celebration. Be a devotee of Love and Loving. Life is short. Know that you are enough and trust that you are loved.   This is a podcast you will want to hear.   to find out more about Padma please go to: Facebook: http://www.Facebook.com/padma.gordon Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/padmagordon/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/padma.gordon/ Website: https://www.padmagordon.com   #AgendalessConversation #TheMosaic #TheMosaicPodcast #50ConversationsWith50Strangers #DanielBruceLevin #PadmaGordon #Listen #SeeMe #BePresent #SpirtualGuide #MindfulMovement #BeingTogether   to learn more about Daniel B.

Ep 097 Love Is Just Damn Good Business with Steve Farber
THIS SHOW IS SPONSORED BY THE MOSAIC  to learn more and to buy the book please go to: www.TheMosaicOnline.com or go to amazon: http://a.co/dvgsgG3 Steve Farber is Ranked on Inc.’s Global Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts list, Steve Farber is a Wall St Journal best-selling author and the founder and CEO of The Extreme Leadership Institute. His first book, The Radical Leap: A Personal Lesson in Extreme Leadership, was named one of the 100 Best Business Books of All Time. His new book, Love Is Just Damn Good Business, has been listed by Book Authority as one of the top business strategy books of 2020.he says, “Promoting Love Is Just Damn Good Business”  and invites you to receive a  free LEAP Assessment at www.loveisgoodbiz.com Steve believes, It’s time to toss aside the touchy-feely notions of love in business and recognise the real power it holds. Love is not only appropriate in the context of business, it’s the foundation of great leadership, and, therefore, the very foundation of a thriving, competitive enterprise. When love is part of an organization’s framework and operationalized in its culture, employees and customers feel genuinely valued. Employees who are passionate about the work that they do are more loyal, innovative, creative, and inspired, and that translates to great customer experience. They don’t serve others out of obligation, but because of a genuine desire to improve people’s lives. And when customers reciprocate by loving your products, your services, and your people, that’s when something great happens. That’s when you get loyalty. That’s when you get raving fans. It’s a refreshingly human way of doing business. --- this is one of those pivotal conversations that you just have to listen to.  it was unique not only in the conversation we had but in the application of how to introduce love into the business arena. choosing speak about love as the passion you have for what you are do and the feeling you have for the products and services that you offer, rather than speaking from a place of having to love yourself first or love your team, he brings that culture of love in in a way that corporate people can understand and thens peaks of what happens when your team says, “i love working here.” and your clients say, “ i love what these people do." does that mean that everything becomes perfect. listen in to and out. this is a beautiful conversation and one in which Steve, like many others that i interview comments on the uniqueness of the questions and feel of the interview. i highly encourage you to visit his websites and spend some time there and inviting Steve to come and do a presentation for your team.  to find out more about Steve please go to: www.stevefarber.com www.extremeleadership.com or visit him on: LinkedIn Facebook Instagram Twitter   #AgendalessConversation #TheMosaic #TheMosaicPodcast #50ConversationsWith50Strangers #DanielBruceLevin #SteveFarber #Listen #SeeMe #LoveIsJustDamnGoodBusiness #LEAP #ExtremeLeadership #LovingYourProducts #LovingYourServices #lovingYourPeople to learn more about Daniel B.

David invites people to grow beyond the edges and watch what happens when i ask David what is beyond the edge of his own growth right now? i highly encourage you to visit his websites and spend some time there getting to know David and the amazing innovations he is creating with the people who associate with him . .  to find out more about David please go to: reinventing.earth peace2030.earth https://www.empowermentinstitute.net #AgendalessConversation #TheMosaic #TheMosaicPodcast #50ConversationsWith50Strangers #DanielBruceLevin #DavidGershon #Listen #SeeMe #ReinventingEarth #peace2030 #EmpowermentInstitute #GrowBeyondTheEdges to learn more about Daniel B.

Ep 093 Catching The Moment We Become Who We Are with Trina Bardusco
14-08-2020
Ep 093 Catching The Moment We Become Who We Are with Trina Bardusco
Somewhere in the back of my mind, i have the idea that the book i wrote, The Mosaic would always be turned into a movie or a Netflix series or something like that and from time to time life brings to me people who are really talented in filmmaking, directing and producing films. i have also always felt that the essence of The Mosaic, the idea of listening to people no one listens to, and watching them righting front of my eyes transform from who i thought they were to who they are.  for the most part, this happens in my seeing something that i never saw in them before, AND . . .  occasionally it happens through the practice of holding space.  when a person feels safe enough to be themselves, all that they are not falls away, leaving only who they are to be seen. both ways involve this practice of compassionate listening and both processes are exquisite to watch. Trina Bardusco is an American-Venezuelan who is passionate about innovative storytelling, championing multiculturalism, diversity and content for women. She has written, directed, produced and or co-hosted a total of nine web series and for-and-about women in both English and Spanish. you can easily see why i was so eager to speak with her. She also co-pioneered HBO Latino’s original, award winning series, Habla, that for over a decade has given a platform to Latinos living in the U.S. Latinos from all walks of life, including dozens of celebrities, share their personal stories. Her latest project, Going Solo, is a documentary series with a distinctly feminine take on the impulse to travel. Blending bold storytelling, far-flung locals, and spirited exploration, we follow Trina as she takes a walk—or twirl, or ride—in another’s shoes, seeking passion and excitement in each unique form of cultural expression.  need i say more, but there is more . . . Trina began her career as a Fulbright Scholar of ethnomusicology in Spain in 1999 for her project, “Flamenco’s Duende and Deep Song.” She soon traded the library for one of the first, readily available DV digital cameras, and started documenting gypsy flamenco singer, Luis Agujeta. This lead to her debut documentary, I’m the Tourist,  where she first began experimenting with immersing herself in a way of life markedly different from her own. what was fabulous to watch in this interview was that moment when we could feel who trina was actually came front an center.  thesis not to say that before na after that moment trina was not real and authentic and beautiful, but if you watch, i thin you will see, there is a moment she something changes. those moments are what i live for. i hope you will enjoy watching this episode and that it will encourage you to usher in that moment for yourself when you become you. to get in touch with trina please go to her website: https://www.TrinaBardusco.com to learn more about Daniel B.

Ep 092 When Curiosity Meets Listening with Martin Lopez
I met Martin several years ago.  in the years i have known him, he has always been one of the kindest people i know.  he is someone who has always given to me way more than he has asked for, he has had me on numerous platforms that he has created and yet over the years we have not seen each other all that much when he invited me to be on a facebook live conversation, i saw something in him that i had not seen before, and i wanted to have him on this podcast to share with us his work around curiosity and his book The Curiosity Theory. i must say, this was one of the most interesting podcasts that i have ever done, because in the middleman our conversation, Martin stepped back to analyse what he was thinking and feeling from a curiosity perspective and then i did the same thing from a place of holding space and listening. the two practices are very similar but i think you will see in this conversation, the living breathing practice of what each of us do. i highly recommend Martin and if you are feeling stuck or this that a new way of looking at the world with curiosity might benefit you and/or you company, please reach out to him. here is a little more Information on who Martin is and how you can reach him: Martin Lopez is an Real Estate Professional as well an Author, Trainer and Coach in the personal development industry. His book The Curiosity Theory is a powerful methodology that radically changes… ✅ The way we look at ourselves ✅ The way we look at each other. ✅ And The way we look at life, The Curiosity Theory gives people alternatives during tense and stressful situations. This allows people to Powerfully Interact vs. Repeating the same mistakes over and over. As a Trainer, Martin’s works with: Start-ups ::: Corporate CEO’s ::: One on One Coaching ::: And High Performance Teams. His gift is uncovering blind spots and strengthening professional and personal relationships, As well as helping teams and organizations work together more openly and efficiently. Martin is a graduate of the University of Santa Monica’s Spiritual Psychology program and has extensive training in may other methodologies. During his 30+ years as a real estate professional and mortgage banker, Martin saw so many opportunities lost due to misaligned energy, conflict and self-sabotaging communications. Almost every time, the issues were human rather than technical: Simple misunderstandingsTragic disagreementFear-driven distrust The Curiosity Theory is the result of Martin’s exploration. Written in the same humorous, conversational style he uses when teaching seminars. The book is a guide to practicing The Curiosity Theory to strengthen your relationships in all aspects of your life. Applied curiosity improves communication and collaboration. It helps teams work together more openly and efficiently. It brings friends, couples and families closer together.

Ep 091 When Fiction Becomes Reality - Sugar Mountain with Alfred Alcorn

Ep 091 When Fiction Becomes Reality - Sugar Mountain with Alfred Alcorn
This happens sometimes in the world of fiction and science fiction, a writer writes a story that speaks of something that happens only to find years later, what the writer saw happen, actually happens. Alfred Alcorn is not a prophet, a psychic or a doomsayer, he is just a brilliant author who has seen enough of the world to tell stories of a world that could be. Sugar Mountain, written in 2013, could become a manual to help us navigate or way through the global pandemic of Coved -19.  it is not an exact rendition, but what it does do, is it invites the reader to contemplate, is Coved -19 a one and done endemic or the messenger for a more deadly pandemic that could surface at any time. Hear Alfred thoughts on what can be done, what the world is trying to say to us and what the world might soon look like if we don’t all come together. First published in 2013 and set in western Massachusetts, Sugar Mountain  revolves around the struggle of an extended family to survive a pandemic  that starts in China and spreads around the world with devastating effect.  As it stands,  Sugar Mountain could serve as a survival manual should Covid 19 mutate and turn more deadly than it already is.  Because of the relevance and increased demand for Sugar Mountain, the publisher has come out with a reissue that might be of interest to those who have not read the 2013 edition.   Born Alfred Denny and orphaned at the age of eight, the author grew up in the U.K. (Merseyside), in Ireland (County Roscommon), and in the U.S. (Massachusetts). He graduated from Harvard and has worked as a journalist, editor, teacher, travel director (for the Harvard Museum of Natural History).  In that last capacity he planned and led trips all over the world, including Antarctica.  He has also been a safari guide, mostly in Tanzania, which he knows well.   To date he has written and published 10 novels.  They have been reviewed in the New Yorker, The New York Times, the Boston Globe, and many other publications.

Ep 090 The Power of Fear with Diane Ray
Ep. 090 The Power of Fear with Diane Ray we had numerous opportunities to meet each other over the course of the years, but we never did, not even when we worked for the same company, Hay House, but then again, she was coming in and I was going out. we got reintroduced through the podcast community and both of us decided it was time to have a conversation. prior to this podcast we had one of two conversations over the phone and I shared with her my feeling that perhaps it was time for her to move from behind the curtain to in front of the curtain and so one of the things I was interested in talking to her about was whether she had gleaned any insights from talking to so many  of the leaders in the industry of self help around the topic of fear. when i asked diane what she would like to say to people, she sent me a quote George Harrison and say " All things must pass" ..we have been through wars, other pandemics and bad presidents. We will get through this as well. Just be kind to each other and remember we are all in this together.  I could tell you more but I think it better if you listen in to see what we talked about  . . .   BIO she has been working in radio broadcasting for over 30 years since she first cracked the mic at age 19 at WSHE She’s Only Rock and Roll in Ft.

Ep 088 500 Lunch with 500 Strangers with Nick Bendel
i don’t even know how Nick came across my awareness, but the minute I heard about what he was doing, something ignited in me. you see, i had been planning to take a trip around the world to sit with people who did not feel heard and listen to them. i wanted to hear what people would say if someone cared enough to listen to them. i wanted to sit on street corners, government offices, homeless shelters, placesI of worship, bookstores, cafes and truck stops. I wanted to visit strangers in hospitals and talk with CEO’s and entrepreneurs, sit with families and children in schools, i wanted to sit with the homeless and with people who had beautiful homes and ask them some questions and just listen to their answers. but i was scared. my body had gotten older and it was carrying a lot of pain and i was no longer that 18 year old kid who hitchiked around the world’s was now a 65 year old man who was a whole lot less spontaneous than i wanted to admit i was and was looking for companies to sponsor my trip. i was looking for a car company to sponsor my vehicle and a hotel company to let me stay overnight in rooms that were not booked, or a train company that would be willing to let me ride across the country and speak with people on the trains. all great ideas, but what i realized is they were covering up my fear of getting out there and doing it. so i made a decision, i would leave march 1,2020 no matter what.  in judaism they have a great saying, "Man plans and God laughs”.  weeks beforemy departure date, Coved -19 entered our collective lives and no one was going anywhere. so when i heard about nick and hs mission to have 500 lunches with 500 strangers, i had to have him on the show and i had to do what he was doing. and thus i started 50 conversations with 50 strangers (o listen to those conversations, please go to my YouTube channel: to subscribe to my YouTube channel, please go here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVQAe3mbYOT0AFY6Zr-xskg?view_as=subscriber) you will love this podcast, there is a gentleness and a kindness that permeate everything nick does, to hear that, you will have to listen to this show. to find out more about nick and 500 lunches, read below: About Nick Bendel Nick Bendel is an ex-journalist who now owns a content marketing agency called Hunter & Scribe.

Ep 081 Loving Others Through Their Pain with Marlisse Hardamon
Marlisse Hardamon I would like to introduce myself, Lisa, a survivor. 

Yes, I was abused and suffered from the result of that abuse. Yes, I cried and I even tried to end my life, several times. I hated myself and everyone, else. I was bitter and angry. I lived in a place of darkness, it covered my soul. I drank and smoked, just to numb the pain. I lived in the world of victimization, unable to heal and forgive.

But, today I dance in the light of my life, not as a victim, but a victor.  I have learned to not only forgive my perpetrators but to forgive myself. I have learned to move past my pain, not by pretending it never happened, but by drawing strength from it, because it happened. I have been able to transform my life, using my pain as a platform to show women, how to live a transformed life, to move beyond their current situation into a place of wholeness, peace, and joy. I am not a victim, I did not let my life destroy me, it made me strong and taught me how to truly live life. Purpose: I was placed here to allow my light to shine through adversity and trauma, so that I can be a beacon of light other who are in traumatic situations and that I can love them through their pain.
