  • Culturally we have a rather resilient and defiant idea of happiness and fulfilment. We are conditioned to believe that getting everything we ever wanted, being recognised, worshipped or adored by everyone or by having the power or control over everything adds up to a kind of utopian endpoint. But how realistic is this? Inspired by some beautiful stories from Thursday's brilliant guest Jeff Foster, today's episode see’s Jonny exploring the limited idea that peace comes from satisfaction and that joy is a place of no challenge. Today Jonny looks at the suffering stemming from his own ‘perfectionist’ mindset and his futile attempts to realise his potential. How to sit with doubt, how to embrace desire, how to revere our crises moments, these could all be huge opportunities when it comes to engaging more fully in life and becoming more receptive to it.

  • For most of us, the idea of humiliation either private or public is one that triggers great fear. But could humiliation actually be a key to unlocking our potential? Today’s episode is all about grappling with the fear of humiliation, a topic that Jonny has been focusing on intensely since hearing a quote from Thursday's guest Charles Eisenstein: "Humility lets you know what you didn’t know, whereas before you didn’t know that you didn’t know." Jonny, as no stranger to fear of failure examines how our fears cover up our opportunity to merge with the unknown and explore more about who we are. He looks at how by denying, fighting and conquering internal challenge we can never grow and investigates the possibilities for when we desire, we care, we commit wholeheartedly and we come up short.

  • This week’s guest on the I Am podcast is Alice Bull and her speciality is Sophrology, a practise designed for enhancing our engagement in the present moment. As you'll hear Jonny discuss today, Sophrology is an exploration of the relationship we have with ourselves, with our gift and our performance. It is a technique being employed all around the globe in sporting arenas and more and more and in business as well, one which can hold power in any field where people are finding themselves closing down due to stress and pressure, feeling trapped, uninspired or overwhelmed. Each little bit of space we create from dissolving these boundaries contributes to giving us back a bit more of the power to our memory and our imagination and therefore the capacity to remember our power create the kind of life we dream of.

  • How we grow and how we continue to explore the possibilities of who we are, is becoming a major focus of each episode of I AM. It is not really about becoming or arriving at the ideal version of ourselves, it is more about surrendering to something far greater, tuning into the authentic, original voice of our calling, uncovering our purpose and following our highest passion and excitement along the way.

    In today’s solo episode, Jonny elaborates on the conversation to come with Dr Ruairi Robertson - a scientist studying the human gut microbiome - looking into how we can transform ourselves from the inside out. As gut health and the knowledge of this diverse ‘ecosystem’ of microbes inside us becomes ever prevalent in health discussion debate, Jonny contemplates how our relationship with our body and the food we consume holds the power to connect us more deeply to opportunities and potential on many levels.

  • Justin Langer has had a brilliant sporting career - both as a key member of a legendary Australian national team and as a coach. During Justin’s tenure in charge of the squad, they went on to take back the ashes, win their first ever T20 World Cup and earn their way back to the coveted number 1 World ranking spot.

    Having just resigned from his coaching post, Jonny caught up with Justin at a great time for a chat about all things potential, performance and helping ourselves and others.

    Justin is on a healing path that recognises the importance of challenge, humility and of letting go into just being. He has so much to say about how it has come to be and how it is manifesting in his life.

  • In today’s solo episode, Jonny elaborates on the conversation to come with Justin Langer. Justin Langer had a long and brilliant stint in professional cricket as a key member of a legendary Australian national team and has since gone on to very successfully coach them too.


    Justin’s recent resignation from his coaching post leaves him in a great space for reflecting upon big learnings and personal transformations during his career and life. What isn’t missing though is his brilliant intensity and passion.


    Jonny uses this introductory, personal episode to give his own thoughts on this powerful and impactful type of energy that seems to be behind creative genius and also off the field struggles of isolation. The blessing and the curse as it is known. But does it have to be that way? This is the big question. Can this obsessive type of single minded dedication also be a privileged doorway into a deeper dimension of experience?


    As Jonny ventures deeper into this exploration he unearths the two possible opportunities we have access to in every moment: the path of greater and the path of least resistance. Inevitably we encounter the topics of trust and self worth here too.

    Throughout his entire career Justin has been an avid and devoted practitioner of Transcendental meditation so we get to hear how that fits in according to Jonny as well.
