David Pearce was born, raised and educated in England and now finds himself living in California because of his line of work in Information Technology. However, David decided to take a 'career break' (prior to accepting the work opportunity in California) and during that time he learned how to care for himself in a way that he had not previously been doing. You'll love this story of a man learning how to 'be' with himself, how to care for himself - and then taking that back out into the work arena.
I recently interviewed David's wife, Alison Braid,and you will learn more about the development of their relationship and marriage earlier this year in her interview. See a link to Alison's interview at the bottom of this interview.

John O Connell lives and works in the Republic of Ireland. During the course of this interview we travel through John's life decisions. You'll find his reason for leaving the police force when he did interesting! Taking care of his ailing mother made him aware of his interest in nursing, an extension of his natural caring nature. Around this same time Ireland became proactive in addressing the rising health issues in it's population by offering a Health and Physical Activity training. John ties this all together with his work as an esoteric practitioner. This is a fun interview listening to John weave the tapestry of his life up to where he is now.
As always, I inquire about how John reconnected to the Ageless Wisdom. His story involves a singing workshop at Findhorn with - guess who!
Diana, her husband and their three school age children moved from The Netherlands to India in 2017. Talk about a change in environment! In this interview we find how why they moved, how they made that decision as a family and how they have made it work for them.
Diana also talks about the inspiration behind WAP - the Web Authority Project. She first envisioned having groups of people write about their experiences as Students of the Livingness so if others wanted to know more, they had some reference on the world wide web that they could rely on as a first hand account. The Project, as it has turned out, also offers the participants the opportunity to evolve through group work.
After we had finished the interview, Diana realised we had not yet discussed her biggest project which is a foundation that originated in The Netherlands but which she will now bring to India. Its a foundation that works with young girls to instil in them the awareness that 'the relationship that she has with herself is the most important relationship she will ever have'. This is the separate little 3 minute interview below.
The following is a short snippet about a foundation for young girls, that was originally founded in the Netherlands but will now be introduced to India.
Lieke was from Holland. Josh lived in New Zealand. Yet their paths crossed, not in person but in cyber space. In the age of technology this is a perfectly normal place to bump into your future partner. As the relationship blossomed, they had just a few little logistical problems to work out, like how to arrange to meet in person. Eventually when the relationship hit full bloom, they were then faced with other logistical decisions like which country to live in. Join me on this delightful journey of Josh and Lieke falling in love and making decisions about their future. By the way, they decided on Belgium - where English is not one of the three national languages. They make it all sound so easy.
This interview comes to you from the Netherlands, thanks to the technology of Skype. Willem Plandsoen lives with his partner, Sylvia, near Amsterdam. He has a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering. Currently he is an employee at a European consultancy business as well as having his own business.
Willem has been a dedicated Student of the Livingness since 2009. In the years immediately following his reconnection to the Ageless Wisdom, he went through some big changes both personally and professionally, just as many of us have.
Today Willem is working in the corporate world, reflecting what he has been learning to all those he comes in contact with. You’ll enjoy hearing how he brings his Livingness to those he is working with including those he is working for.
If you don't know Dragana Brown, google Huffington Post UK and put her name in the search field. Reading just one of her articles will give you a good idea of the passion and power of this woman. We start the interview with her early childhood in Yugoslavia. After finding out how she ended up in the UK we move on to what it takes to be an advocate for Freedom of Speech and Truth in Journalism. At the conclusion of the interview Dragana describes the change that occurred in her and the change that happened to her writing after her first Universal Medicine presentation.
The change that she shares sheds some insight onto the previous interview with Michael Brown, her son, when he is talking about his relentless inquiry on her home from her first presentation by Serge Benhayon. Enjoy these back-to-back son and mother interviews.
You can listen to an interview with Dragana's son, Michael Brown here.
You’ll enjoy this interview with Michael Brown. It is so refreshing to speak to a 21 year old who is putting himself out to the world because, in his words, “My life is too good not to share.”
Michael is studying a Bachelor in Mathematics and Statistics as well as working at a large supermarket in London, serving as a team leader, applying for managerial duties. He also shares how he woke up one day and thought he could play the piano so he went out and bought a keyboard and a couple of months later he was playing at a friend’s wedding in front of 150 people. Brave, eh! And you’ll love his idea about Philosophy on Whiteboard. Enjoy!
Oh, BTW, Michael is the son of Dragana Brown (who will be the guest in the next Fiery Service interview.)

Adele Leung is a visual consultant working in Hong Kong. She works behind the camera as a photographer, designer and fashion stylist. Now she also works in front of the camera as a role model of a woman who accepts herself. In this interview, I asked Adele about her exploration of publishing selfies on Facebook and how that brought her to a place of acceptance within herself. Adele is possibly the only Student of the Livingness in Hong Kong and I queried how she sustains this - all on her own. I also asked what she felt the biggest change has been with her since starting to study and live the Ageless Wisdom. You can find out her amazing answers in this short interview.
