In this episode of The Love Cast with Jamal podcast, I interview Dr. Nathan Riley MD, OB-GYN about how his experience as a physician in the western medical system led him to disillusionment, a spiritual awakening, and eventually to move beyond the traditional medical model to create a practice that is one of the most effective in the nation.
Nathan Riley, MD, is a board-certified OB-GYN and fellow of ACOG who left the medical industrial complex due to his disillusionment with the “standard of care” within the conventional maternity care model. This was hard because “going with the flow” of hospital-based practice was providing him financial security. On the other hand, standing in his truth from having sat with over 1000 births and connecting with women and their families has provided him a lifestyle more in alignment with fatherhood, deepening his connection with his wife, and caring for people in the way that he had anticipated long before stepping into practice.
Dr. Riley now focuses his time on upholding the traditional practice of midwifery. He supports midwives as a collaborative physician for midwives of all varieties in over twenty states. He is an advocate for home birth and still attends births for those in need. He boasts a c-section rate of <5%, which is one of the best in the U.S.
This conversation covers some fascinating perspectives and I'm sure some thought provoking paradigms will be revealed to you in this episode.
If I'm being honest, although I am an author, I am not someone who typically likes to read books. I almost never seek out books, and would rather do many other things in my down time than read. With that said, some books have a way of finding me. When they do, they usually find me because of frequency.
A book recently came into my awareness called 'Returning To Eden' by Heather Hamilton. As soon as I began to interact with the book, I realized that the frequency of this book is refreshing, and one that I deeply resonate with in many ways.
If you identify as a Christian, especially as an evangelical Christian, let me gently encourage you to consider listening to this episode of The Love Cast with Jamal podcast as I interview Heather Hamilton about her new book Returning To Eden. Let me also encourage you to get a copy of her book Returning To Eden.
No, not because you will agree with everything in this podcast interview, (or her book), but because it may cause you to consider a perspective that your current sources of information have not been able to present you with. Growth is important for us all, and it takes conscious effort to remain open-minded and to not fall into a closed echo chamber. This is a typical challenge in belief systems of all kinds.
On the other hand, if you have been deeply damaged by the Christian religion and find anything resembling your previous faith to be distaseful or triggering, let me also gently encourage you to listen to this episode of The Love Cast with Jamal podcast, and also to consider reading Returning to Eden. You may find it to be restoritive in ways you may not have thought possible.
In this episode of The Love Cast with Jamal, Aly Sousa joins me on the show once again to reveal and discuss another paradigm that keeps many of us stuck and unproductive in life. Ironically, a major tendency that works against our productivity in life is the compulisve drive to get ahead and accomplish tasks. This drive leads many of us to compuslive busyness and multi-tasking.
For many of us, if we are not busy doing many different things, we may feel unproductive and lazy, leading to guilt, shame, and addictive patterns of escape. For others, the feeling of unproductivity may motivate us to work harder and do more things. Either way, this pattern is a major drain of our life force energy which leads to an unproductive life.
Let me encourage you to give this conversation an important listen.
In this episode of The Love Cast with Jamal Podcast, I had the opportunity to sit down with Rachel King, an award winning attorney & litigator, who founded her own law firm in 2014. Rachel's firm specializes in business law, family law, estate law, real estate law, etc...
Rachel is a serial entrepreneur starting at the age of 12. This work ethic and drive at an early age led to 7 years of military service. Utilizing the disciplined skills to move forward owning multiple business, Rachel acquired the desire to continue expanding her talents. The passion for Law was instilled in her from birth from her father’s law career, so she followed in his footsteps opening her own law firm in 2014.
I enjoyed my conversation with Rachel and wanted to share it with you as it gives us a rare look into the life of an attorney who has a desire to use her talents as an attorney to promote healing and peace in a field of law often filled with anger and division.
In this episode of The Love Cast with Jamal podcast, Aly Sousa comes back on the show to kick off part one of our seven part series on how to stop hemorrhaging away our vital life force energy. In this episode, we talk about how excessive emotional reactivity (triggers) deplete us of vital life force energy over time leaving us exhausted and energetically spent. This ultimately leads to more reactive tendencies that lead to more energy drain.
Give this conversation a careful listen.

Needless to say, this incident radically changed Lion's life and eventually led him to discover his life's true work as a executive coach and healer. Give this episode a careful listen.
