It’s time for the next instalment in the Monday Mocha Series. One of the reasons why I wanted to start this particular series is to help change the attitude and resistance we have towards Monday which is essentially the mentality we go into the week with. By chatting to an inspiring individual, taking time out to have a coffee or a break – it’s a good way to ease into your week.

“Every single person that I’ve ever worked with that I see the light go on and they’re more themselves, that leaves a heart print on me each time.

Here’s our first Aussie who’s actually in Australia. In Episode 12 of The Ginni Show Wednesday podcast, I talked about meeting my first spiritual teacher in a body at a Night Club. Now when I say “in a body,” I’m not saying that other teachers are body-less per say, but I mean that they are in human form. Being raised a Catholic, technically, Jesus was my first spiritual teacher but he wasn’t in a body – I never actually met him in person. This episode we meet my first spiritual teacher – Parvati Sundari. When I met her on the dance floor at The Wharf Hotel in Melbourne, there was an instant connection. It felt like I had known her before. Now, not only is she still a teacher to me, she’s also a wonderful confidant, healer, soul coach and mate. I hope the joy in this interview spreads to your day and your week!

We’re a month into The Monday Mocha Series. I’m loving the responses we’re getting to these so far. Some of you have expressed just how much you’re learning from these coffee dates and it brings me much joy! For those of you who have popped by for the first time to have a cuppa with me – this podcast is a chance to have a break from my Aunties, Ammi and 170 cousins featured on my Wednesday podcast and hear the journey of an inspiring individual from some part of the world. As you all know, I love talking. A lot.  The reason for starting the Monday Mocha podcast is that through the teachings and lessons I have the privilege of sharing with you every week that have come from my teachers; I am still a student in pursuit of more knowledge, self awareness and tools to cultivate more of the good things we need more of in this world. Each Monday, I’ll be having a chat to a guest who has much wisdom to share that we can all benefit from – to light up our day that little bit brighter.

It will literally feel like you’re sitting right there, having coffee with us. So c’mon, let’s have a Mocha!

“I love stories. Something that I absolutely crave is listening to people’s stories; what excites them, what’s their passion and how they’ve dealt with challenges.

The first few Monday Mocha’s of this series were all with New Yorkers. So I guess it’s about time I had a coffee with a fellow Aussie. Who happens to live in New York. Nicholas Stone is the CEO and Founder of Bluestone Lane; a Melbourne inspired coffee shop raising the standard of coffee palates amongst New Yorkers with the true coffee snobbery we seem to have down under. With already a handful of cafes in New York and soon to be three in Philly, the Bluestone love is set to spread across the country.
