Rhys Thomas and Teresa Quinlan are bringing you guests to challenge the status quo. Explode the Status Quo. The only way to DO differently is to THINK differently. And business needs us to think differently, as leaders, so that we can explode through the barriers that keep us stuck.


TNT 2.0: Episode 69 with Nicola Lipscombe - BE YOU; NO MORE NO LESS

Today we welcome Nicola Lipscombe!

Nicola is a professional speaker and facilitator; a storyteller and a story listener. A former pharmacist and academic her quest can now be summed up in one word; CONNECTION. She strives to help others and herself to become deeply conscious and present - with ourselves, each other, our planet and this Universe (or Divine, Spirit, Higher Intelligence).

She is the Creator of HeartWise™ Leadership, Powerful Listening, Friday’s Mindful Moments and co-creator of RENEW Retreats for women. She has a gift for weaving together the practicality of western science with the wonder and wisdom of eastern spirituality and the heart.

Yes, she’s a speaking professional … but that’s not all. Nicola is a writer, a poet, a Circle leader, a photographer, a mindfulness practitioner and an Art of Feminine Presence Sister. She adores nature, roaming vintage markets and op shops and is fascinated by street art. She works hard at Tsonduko …the Japanese art of buying books and letting them pile up unread !

An introvert at heart she seeks deeply meaningful connection and is truly not interested in your new washing machine … really!

She can’t be put in a box and has even written a poem about that too.

Welcome Nicola!

Nicole takes us on an absolutely heart expanding trip through her own incredible wake up call to the practices she uses TODAY for herself and her clients. We discuss:

- Wanting to feel seen and heart

- Not quite fitting in

- The search for connection starts from the inside

- 2011’s wake up call – a grapefruit sized tumour = the Holy Shit moment and then came the Existential Questions:

- What do I want?

- Who am I?

- Becoming purpose driven to full authenticity as a departure from the path of Academia I was on (all head)

- My goal was To Be Me – no more, no less

- The need to get in touch with the body was a requirement for head to heart journey

- Buddhist practices as part of the journey to connection to self

- The spiritual miss of comparison to how evolved we are compared to someone else’s evolution/awakening/awareness

- Using mindfulness of breath and sound

- I don’t have to BE any body in this moment

- In the space of presence practice we can lose ourselves, the lines that define or confine us, so that we enter FLOW

- The power of circles to hold the space for others to speak what’s on their heart

Get in touch with Nicola!
