​Interview with Dale Sidebottom from Energetic Education.
Our primary focus was the 19,000 Glad Mail I have written in the last 20 years! Listen in and see how you too can catch people doing something right!!

Hosts; Janine Savient & Heather Ellis Drake Stahnke, interview Pat Armitstead renowned “Joyologist. Pat is going to share highlights from her life journey , demonstrating as we go the paradox and synchronicity, and the way in which her life purpose has been and continues to be fulfilled.

​Pat is truly a Renaissance woman with an extensive skill set and huge creativity, yet she says she has struggled with doubt all her life ! Her journey has been a roller coaster with the last 16 years especially being filled with spiritual growth and evolution.

Article June 2018 published in Thrive Global Magazine . “The art of improvisation is a skill developed by actors that boosts creative thought and potentiates deliberate brain activity. It is not uncommon for participants in programs to quickly develop skills that allow them to perform five or six complex tasks simultaneously. It is a process that involves unlearning old habits and thinking laterally to create new solutions to problems.”

For 20 years I have been saying every business needs a Humour Resource Department! Why? We are born with multiple intelligences but most of our societies only honour sport and academia.
Humour , in particular improv, unleashes creativity and creates high trust environments.

Radio interview with Temple Hayes on Unity FM

Radio interview with Temple Hayes on Unity FM. A program with guests such as Neale Donald Walsh and William Whitecloud and anchored by Temple Hayes. We discuss being a master storyteller, and combining methodology with human experiences to bring understanding and meaning to life events. I see crisis as a catalyst for personal growth and ongoing transformation, enabling high levels of intimate communication and authentic expression.

Pat was interviewed by Janelle Fletcher for her “Womans Rite of Passage to Self Love” series recently. Having endured many losses in her lifetime Pat is well equipped to share her experiences and what has worked ….and not worked, in her journey through adversity. Janelles wonderful languaging, and interview style combine to make this a wonderful resource for anybody moving through difficult times . Pat says she made committtment to ‘go to” anything that came up from 2001, turning her life around!

In 2010 Pat was one of many healers, practitioners and scientists featured in the best selling documentary 101010 Pill or Perception. This is a balanced and thought-provoking documentary about the connection between the mind and body, and how we can take a much more direct approach to managing our health and our world generally.It begins with the premise that we have more power over our lives than has been previously understood, and focuses on the keys to taking more responsibility in being well, rather than allowing stress from our environment and our upbringing to create illness.

Series Two on The Point TV, 2016, Pat interviewed Dr Hercules Kollias, a medical doctor, a speaker, an author, a personal development consultant, an entertainer, a coach, a singer, a voice over artist, a workshop facilitator, and, an actor! He is deeply committed to the pursuit of authenticity, in his own life and in the lives of others. People don’t always understand why a doctor would want to work in entertainment, or build businesses, or why a singer, or entrepreneur would want to write books to help others achieve authenticity.

In 2016 Pat Joined The Point TV as a Co-Host, working with Gerald Pauchmann to enable others to tell their story …to make their point !! In the Season one series she interviewed Di Riddell, a resilient lady who moved from terror and tears to great strength and survival. Her story is testimony to the human capacity to endure !!

Interview with Phillipa Ross, Enthusiologist, on the pain and pleasure of living a life on purpose. Exploring grief and losses and finding joy where it appears there is none. Pat believes sadness is love announced and is an advocate for griefs expression , saying in many societies we have lost touch with ceremony and ritual which aids our recovery from loss.

Interviewed on Gift of healing TV ​UK Television – and talk with Sara Jane on my thoughts about the path to joyful expression. I actually think joy is all of it….not just moments of bliss, but the total emotional experience we are all having as our life experience. What are your peak moments and how do you make sure you experience enough of each to fill the void and lead you to a level of equanimity?
