You don’t need mystical visions, like my own story about the visions of me painting, for your life to take a magical turn. You just need to develop the skill of listening for the stories the silenced parts of you want to tell you.

Once you develop that skill of listening and start paying attention to what you hear, you’ll discover everything you need to know about how to make your life feel better. Listen to this episode to learn how to listen to the parts of you that you haven’t been hearing.


I’m taking on additional 1:1 clients for custom coaching.

Liberate yourself to become more of who you want to be. Learn how to stop following the rules dictated by your parents, your work environment or society at large, and start doing more of what you love. Find the answers you need in your body and your intuition. Develop a greater awareness of the way your mind limits or expands what’s available to you. Discover previously unearthed sources of creativity and ideas inside yourself. Learn how to honour and celebrate you.

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.
