Dave Ursillo

For Life on Purpose Episode #49, my guest is writer, author, yoga teacher, and traveler Dave Ursillo, who returns for a fourth conversation on my shows.

Dave was Guest #1 on my very first podcast (Radio Enso) back in 2011 and his wisdom, tools, and life experience always make for a great chat!

Throughout the various threads of his work, Dave helps creatives, self-starters and everyday yogis use their words to live the stories they want to be telling.

Dave joined me for an excellent, in-depth conversation about:

  • Embodying your values;
  • Life evolution and change;
  • Creativity;
  • The freedom of NOT knowing;
  • What he’s learned from teaching yoga;
  • Habit change;
  • Cultivating the right container for personal and creative growth;
  • The notion of “service”;
  • Self-reflection and healing;
  • Teaching that thing you most need to learn yourself;
  • The importance of tribe;
  • Conscientious choices;
  • Karma vs. dharma;
  • Is “Lifestyle Design” over?
  • Embracing the ordinary;
  • Dave’s upcoming Yoga & Writing Retreat in Costa Rica.
  • The Literati Writers group;
  • And much more!
