Episode 104 - How to feel alive and at peace (plus a live wild swim and meditation) with Bernadette Petrie and Jojo Fraser

We enjoy a live wild swim in this raw and real episode and talk all things feeling alive and at peace.  Join us on the beach for a mojo injection. There are no gremlins in nature (wisely said by my wonderful guest)!


In 2010 Bernadette Petrie was admitted to the Glasgow Priory, suffering from what doctors were calling a manic episode. It was day five of an intensive, emotional roller-coaster journey which had terrified Bernadette and left her mentally and physically exhausted. That evening, Bernadette, experienced what she refers to as a spiritual awakening, and so began her long, slow journey of recovery.


Bernie is a life coach, author of Permission to Shine in 60 thoughts and she runs The Barefoot Sanctuary Wellness Centre in North Berwick, Scotland.  The Barefoot Sanctuary offers a space for emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing through a range of mindful experiences.  


Jojo Fraser is an award winning author, coach, podcaster and motivational speaker.  She has been a mental health researcher for the past 6 years and helps to empower, motivate and uplift the leaders she works with.  She is known for her straight talking and bold approach.  Her mission is simple – to normalise what many see as ‘the hard’ conversations and in breaking the stigma, save many lives.  She will be giving her first TEDx talk this month and is also available for acting roles (show reels available).
