Welcome to the mindful fire podcast, where we explore living mindfully on the path to financial independence and beyond. I'm your host, Adam Coelho and I'm so glad you're here.
On today's episode. I'm joined by my friend, Martie Adler, a consultant coach, and end of life, doula, who I met at the wisdom 2.0 conference.
Among a conference of thousands of people, Martie and I ended up in a community gathering breakout room on zoom and really connected on a number of topics. And I knew I had to get her on the podcast.
In this conversation, Martie and I dive into a number of topics, including conscious living, envisioning the future we want and the gift of elderhood.
Martie and I dive deep into the idea and practice of envisioning something that's been really impactful in my life. We discuss how we can apply envisioning to our life as we think about financial independence and retiring early. She's worked with a lot of people who get to the point of their life where they don't need to work anymore, and then don't know what they want to do with their life.
And so she shares why it's so important that we envision what we want our life to look like all the time, as an ongoing practice and how the language that we use when we think about what we are creating and as we interact with other people in the world, how that really shapes our environment. I share a number of stories in this episode around how I've envisioned both positive and negative things in my life and the impact that that's had.
Lately I've been feeling really called to dive deeper into this idea of envisioning and to create a workshop, to empower listeners of the mindful fire podcast, to get clear on what their vision is for their future.
So if after listening to this episode, you feel that you want to dive deeper into this practice and you'd like to attend a workshop on this practice of envisioning, please let me know. I want to understand what would be most useful for you. You can let me know by reaching out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reaching out to me on Instagram at @themindfulfirepodcast.
Martie also shares how she's worked with elders in her career, both as they explore what's next for their life and as they approached the end of their lives. She shares her thoughts on the gift of elderhood and how people who are younger can really learn from their elders and leverage that experience to improve how they live their lives.
Martie's also an end of life doula, which means that she works with people as they think about and approach the end of their lives. And as she tells us in the episode, none of us are going to get out of here alive. So it's really important that we use death as an advisor on how to live our lives.
I really enjoyed this conversation with my friend, Martie Adler, and I hope that you enjoyed as well.
