Today I share a healing practice I use when I’m stressed about what might happen in the future or about something that’s already happened. The focus of this practice is savouring. Savouring happens when you experience something with great enjoyment or delight and you’re fully into that sensory experience.

In this episode, I discuss how to develop a habit of savouring to increase your overall sense of wellbeing and enhance your creativity.

Savouring is an intentional action you can take in any moment. And it’s a practice that’s more likely to produce happiness than anything else I know.

I quote Mo Gawdat, happiness expert and former Chief Business Officer for Google X, who defines happiness as “the calm and peacefulness you feel when life is OK as it is”. Mo defined happiness this way during an interview on an episode of Diary of a CEO, “The Happiness Expert Who Made 51 Million People Happier”. You can find Mo’s interview on Diary of a CEO on YouTube and podcasts everywhere.


If you’re not leading the life you want, you can build the mindset, emotional and intuitive skills to change that. I use my experience as a lawyer, business leader, artist and coach to help my clients discover who they are and live the life they desire.

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner of Ernst & Young in Toronto, where I serviced banks and other large multinationals and led a large group of professionals.

My life expanded when I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint, something I’d always dreamt of doing, but had no reason to believe was possible for me. After a couple years of painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who yearn to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected in their lives every day, and I became certified as a life coach.

I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at GRACE Studio (more formally, the “George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion”) in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. And, of course, producing this podcast for you.
