Our guest on the podcast today is Faith Fuller PhD. PCC, ORSCC, co-created the first ICF-accredited systems coaching program and is a founder and past president of CRR Global. A coach and consultant, she is currently completing a book, Relationship Matters. Faith believes the next path of evolution for humanity is getting better at relationships, rather than just more tech. She tries to live her life from the principle that everything that happens to us has something important to offer our development. She is currently on the deep learning path of stage 4 cancer.

In this conversation, we go into unchartered territory as we explore the complexities of facing death and the potential for personal transformation that lies therein. Although it can be a difficult topic for many, it can also be an opportunity to reflect on our lives and deepen our spirituality. Faith shares her unique insights from navigating stage 4 cancer, to trust our life and the invisible forces that are guiding our way. She reminds us to have faith, to be present for what is, and listen to how we are feeling instead of doing what we think is expected of us, allowing us to flow in life instead of struggling for a direction.

Listen in as Faith shares how she is making peace with death by accepting it and what is is teaching her about life. How important it is to trust the natural process of the body, and yet make space to continue to reap the benefits of curiosity and optimism, even when facing the loss of a loved one or a terminal diagnosis. Being mindful and in tune with the present moment is key in allowing us to make peace with necessary endings that punctuate our life and inspire us to accept the inevitability of change. So incredibly inspiring!

If you get the sense that there’s more for you to do in this world, more of an impact you can make with your life and work, then I encourage you to listen to this deeply resonant dialogue for insights. I suspect you’ll enjoy Faith's perspective on what we can do to embrace our own traumas and ultimately confront our fears especially when we meet a change that feels like everything.. I think you’ll enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

Memorable Quote

“The changes that you go through in your life are uniquely designed to evolve you psychologically, spiritually, and socially. Even the ones that feel so devastating that you can't imagine recovering from them. So don't be so afraid of the things that come up; the deaths, the illnesses, the bankruptcies, the pandemics. They all bring a gift as well. It just sometimes takes a lifetime to know what that gift is. You can trust life it will bring you what you need to evolve as a person.”—Faith Fuller
