I’m beyond excited to share this week’s podcast with you, as I have literally been waiting for over 20 years to talk with today’s guest!

In 1999, I read the book Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch for the first time, but it wouldn’t be the last. In fact, you’ll hear today about how that one book has positively impacted my life more than any other.

In Neale’s newest book, The Essential Path: Making the Daring Decision to Be Who You Truly Are, he explores how feelings of alienation have created a world in which it’s always “us against them” – and why it’s time to question our basic assumptions about ourselves and each other, about life and how it works, about God, and what humanity is, in order to transform our world for the better.

It is an honor to speak to Neale about the processes and the thinking that have inspired his work, the impact that he’s had on the world, and how we can each begin solving the biggest problem currently facing humanity.


  • Why Neale wasn’t concerned with how readers might respond to his work when he started writing Conversations With God – and the incredible story of how the first book in the series found its publisher.
  • How anyone can have a conversation with God – and what God is in this context.
  • What Neale does to stay active, engaged, and spiritual despite the fact that he doesn’t have a strict daily routine or meditation practice.
  • How clubs, political parties, religious organizations, and other groups are leading to tribalism, separation, and needless conflict in a moment when we as a species need to come together.
  • The four fundamental questions of life – and why so many people never ask them.
