Authenticity and Self-Deception

Air Date: Wednesday, 14 April 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

What does it really take to BE AUTHENTIC and why would you want to be? How do you react when you feel others aren’t authentic with you? What’s the difference between lying and self-deception and why do we wear masks of myth-making?

This week on Expedition Self, you’ll have the opportunity to look into the many ways we both exhibit and interfere with AUTHENTICITY. During this thought-packed hour, spend time skimming around the edges of the ever-changing nature of ‘your truth’ and appreciate how difficult a task it is to find words that sincerely reflect your inner feeling.

As the concept of vulnerability became more popular over the last decade, it gave rise to a healthy exploration of the essence of AUTHENTICITY. Spend time pondering the principle of being honest, how our human nature compels us ot project an idealized image of how we’d like to be seen, and why a commitment to being truly genuine can help you progress to a new level of personal evolution.

You’ll also be invited to consider the ways you protect yourself when actually thinking you’re open and sharing all that thrives inside of you. Self-protection, and our lack of acknowledgement of its existence, is like a tricky stage manager. Oftentimes, it slides just enough to the side of what’s real, to keep ourselves safe while convincing us we’re boldly sharing who we are.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on, ‘Authenticity & Self Deception’ to further the conversation.

You won’t want to miss being an ‘ON AIR’ participant of Expedition Self. Sam will provide real insight, understanding and offer an opportunity to connect a new way of thinking to YOUR way of thinking.

Each week Sam discusses a different and highly accessible slice of building a stronger, deeper relationship with the inner Self so that YOU have the tools to become more and more whole.

Being the Source of Evolved Communication

Being the Source of Evolved Communication

Air Date: Wednesday, 7 April 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week’s topic is all about ‘Being the Source of Evolved Communication’

Communication is everywhere. Words are flying and landing, being repurposed and reimagined. But what are the elements that cause verbal expression to be more robust, deeply moving, and ‘heartfully’ meaningful? How can you become someone who causes this extraordinary sharing of words?

We’ll be unearthing ways for you to become more conscious of the Self information you need to share on this week’s Expedition Self.

Your inner world is chocked full of hearty tidbits just waiting to be freed up. But the quality of these tidbits has everything to do with how you embody your motives, your unconscious needs, and your willingness to share vulnerable information.

Sam will dive into the vital components of Self-evolving communication and describe avenues for you to become a powerful wellspring of sharing, a heart-driven architect of enriched community, a carrier of brilliance and creativity, and the relationship builder that you’ve been designed to be.

Communication is often used as a tool to influence or control the outcome of another’s actions. But rather than using it as unknowing trickery to get what we want; it can play a much more beneficial role by using it to nurture and create loving exchanges and associations.

Sam will help you better understand what’s motivating the different aspects of the Self. You’ll be able to uncouple from your hidden attachments and instead bring authentic words that actually enlighten and acknowledge the often unspoken humanness that’s at play in your conversations.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on, ‘Evolved Communication’ to further the conversation.

The Colossal Nature of FEAR

The Colossal Nature of FEAR

The Colossal Nature of FEAR

Air Date: Wednesday, 31 March 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

Fear is as central to BEING as breathing, and yet we experience it as overpowering and oppressive. The physical sensation of fear is so uncomfortable, it’s no wonder we’ll do anything possible to avoid feeling it. Because this FEAR infiltrates every aspect of life, we tend to work much harder than necessary in an attempt to offset its effect on our inner BEING and daily actions.

Sam will walk through the ways FEAR can be transformed from something we FIGHT, AVOID, and LOATHE into a new level of DEPTH, WISDOM, and FREEDOM.

As with all things GROWTH, our desire is to shed a different light on how you think about and connect with your inner Self.

‘Feel the fear and do it anyway, don’t let fear stop you from getting what you want, and if you let fear win, then you lose,’ are common declarations designed to help us avoid being dominated by FEAR. Because our FEAR is often related to as so limiting, meddlesome, and something to eradicate, we can miss the unseen opportunity to engage more powerfully and collaboratively with it.

Beyond working with the FEAR you know about, your conscious mind tries to cope and manage unconsicous FEAR by using a myriad of tricks to keep you from realizing it’s actually AT PLAY. We’ll expose the profound nature of FEAR and then discern ways to put it to work in helping you evolve and grow.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your thoughts on the, ‘Colossal Nature of FEAR’ to further the conversation.

Get Closer & Deepen Intimacy

Air Date: Wednesday, 24 March 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

Next Week’s Topic is ‘Get Closer & Deepen Intimacy’ in Your MOST Important Relationships!

Your best, valuable and most important relationships are EVERYTHING because you’ve chosen these special ‘BEINGS’ to contribute to your day-to-day experience of living.

Lifelong personal fulfillment is so closely tied to how we get along with those we see as essential and yet, there’s no patent formula for making it turn out the way we’d want it to.

Getting in sync with another person is like creating your greatest work of art. And most of us will acknowledge that the crafting of awesome relationships takes a ton of work.

This week, Sam’s show will help you to acquire insightful and super-effective keystones to assure you’ll be getting tighter with that VIP, recognizing their overlooked charms, and cleaning up your heart spaces with your most treasured people – for year-after-year fascination.

It’s not enough to love someone, or to just BE who we are and allow them to do the same. There’s a weaving, a stitching that while engaged in it, can actually build intimacy between you and take the relationship into renewed, delightful communion.

Understanding, learning, revealing new information, working through old disagreements, and identifying potential resentments – these elements represent the basic scaffolding of any relationship. And they’re completely in your realm of influence.

While they offer exceptional opportunities to bring yourself more fully forward, they’re often neglected and bypassed, especially when the relationship is no longer new and exciting.

No matter whether you’re wanting to improve your relationship with your child, your sibling, your significant other, your spouse, or your best friend, this conversation will help you to distinguish the ‘building blocks of intimacy’.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and CHAT LIVE and share your ‘Relationship Challenges and Learnings’ to further the conversation.

5 Essential Needs of Being

5 Essential Needs of Being

Air Date: Wednesday, 17 March 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

Somewhere along the way it became apparent to Sam that most people feel like they have to DO something to have VALUE – that they have to earn or justify it to be worthy. This week’s show is based on the affirmation, “I Have Value Simply Because I Breathe,” and the 5 Essential Needs that drive every person’s experience.

These ‘Needs’, influence your desires, dictate where you spend your time, and shape the way you get what you want in life – and yet, they work largely behind the scenes. By getting clearer about these ‘5 Essential Needs’, you’ll find yourself pondering simpler and more direct ways to BE and RELATE with others. You’ll understand better how to free up behind-the-scenes strategizing that drains your energy and interferes with the flow of beneficial things coming towards you.

By taking the case that, “I have value simply because I breathe,” you remove the constraints and weight often associated with trying, driving, and pushing to get what you want. You can detach the actions and creating of life from the filling and meeting of your hidden needs because while you become conscious of how they’re running everything, you can now choose a hundred different pathways that weren’t possible before.

Imagine having a direct connection with the source of what compels you. And think about what life would be like if you didn’t feel this constant push to get somewhere, while not really understanding where the urgency comes from. What would you do with all of this freed up energy? How would your life look different?

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and share your ‘Emotion Zone’ to further the conversation.

You can either call in and chat LIVE or send in your questions prior to hello@expeditionself.com. You won’t want to miss being an ‘ON AIR’ participant of Expedition Self. Sam will provide real insight, understanding and offer an opportunity to connect a new way of thinking to YOUR way of thinking.

Emotion Zone

Air Date: Wednesday, 10 March 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week, take a ride with Sam into the Emotion Zone, and explore emotion, feeling, and what it takes to keep an open heart.

Emotions are so essential to our human experience and yet for many of us, we’re in a constant tug o’ war trying to manage and keep them under control. This week’s show is an perfect opportunity to reconstruct your idea of emotionalism, understand how you interrelate with your feelings, and learn how to validate their importance.

It’s so easy to push feelings to the back of your life, to go through your day-to-day, driving yourself so emotion doesn’t have an opportunity to surface and possibly interfere with your plans. Beyond that, there are certain emotions we don’t want anything to do with, and because we’re quite adept at shaping life to effectively avoid them, it further closes the doorway to fully BEING with ALL of life. The heart needs that constant replenishment of feeling, the ebb and flow between us and the world, and without it, we ‘dry up’ from the inside out.

Claim all that you feel! That’s the key to living inside of a rich and potent experiential sense of BEING in your own skin. This week’s conversation on Expedition Self will have you pondering the true nature of emotion and how you become more fully connected and integrated with your entire sensory/feeling inner system.

It’ll be a thought-provoking, inspiring hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and share your ‘Emotion Zone’ to further the conversation. You can either call in and chat LIVE or send in your questions prior to hello@expeditionself.com.

Conscious Parenting

Air Date: Wednesday, 3 March 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

Join Sam for this week’s conversation about ‘Conscious Parenting’.

TUNE IN LIVE and learn about how your personal evolution and your children’s daily life are intertwined and shaping their tomorrow.

There’s no question, parenting is both the hardest and most rewarding mission you’ll ever take on because your heart is so deeply invested. Nothing matters more than the love you have for your children.

At the same time, you’re challenged to feel everything, make wise choices, help them to grow, take care of their needs, and do all of it even when life is overwhelming. All that, and you’re still hoping to make time for you? How can you possibly imagine having the energy or bandwidth to stay connected to your inner world?

Expedition Self will provide a ‘much-needed reset’ for thinking about yourself as a parent that makes room for you to see and leverage the unconscious attachments working behind the scenes between you and your beloved offspring.

And because there are no shortcuts. Sam will talk about how to create more freedom around your own expectations, your investment in being a ‘good’ parent, and the pressure that comes from fear, worry, and guilt.

Parenting is a learning process like no other, but we don’t give ourselves the benefit of this mindset because there’s just too much riding on the outcome. So much at stake! Always trying to get it right, have the right answers, shape the right actions, is exhausting and you can create a different way to approach this amazing experience.

It’ll be a wholehearted, content-packed hour for sure. And Sam invites you to CALL IN and share your experiences resulting from your chocked-full parent moments, to further the conversation.

You can either call in and chat LIVE or send in your questions prior.

You won’t want to miss being an ‘ON AIR’ participant of Expedition Self. Sam will provide real insight, understanding and offer an opportunity to connect a new way of thinking to your way of thinking.

Get Off the Fix-Me Merry-Go-Round!

Get Off the Fix-Me Merry-Go-Round!

Get Off the Fix-Me Merry-Go-Round!

Air Date: Wednesday, 24 February 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

This week’s question is, “How do you get off the merry-go-round of needing to fix yourself?”

Tune in LIVE and see more about how you unwittingly align with this unproductive ‘self-help rhetoric’ and learn to reconstruct your thoughts to become a learner and creator rather than an adversary blocking your own forward movement.

Sam will bust up the detrimental idea that there’s anything about you, that needs to be fixed. The Self-Help industry has capitalized on this by highlighting your own “self-critical” areas and validating that they indeed are ‘wrong’ and you need to ‘correct the problem’.

Expedition Self is of the OPPOSITE mindset.

We believe that ‘ALL of you is JUST RIGHT’, and that growth occurs NOT by squashing the less acceptable parts, but instead by learning and embracing ALL of you for the expansion of the WHOLE SELF. If we are to become and create that which is possible for us, cutting off facets of Self to do this is totally nonsensical.

This ‘wrong-making’ of aspects of SELF distorts our very valid, healthy, and useful need to evolve and build a meaningful, substantive relationship with the Self, and turns it into a self-defeating, culturally acceptable and normalized way of succeeding in life. During the Expedition Self show, we’ll talk about how to come from a new, more constructive place.

Why have we bought into this place of systemic self-contempt and negativity? This is indeed a complex subject, but it is one that MUST be tackled before you can yield the ability to BE and express the MORE of who you are.

It’ll be a content-packed hour for sure. And Sam invites you to call in and share your experiences to further the conversation.

You can either CALL IN and chat LIVE or send in your questions prior.

Launch of Expedition Self with Sam Parrotto

Air Date 17 February 2021 at 5:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT

Join Sam Parrotto this week for the launch of Expedition Self as she facilitates her FIRST EVER on-air, real-time conversation about the true mechanics of ‘Growthwork’ so YOU can seize the reins of your own journey.

Using the fun and adventurous world of Expedition Self as an easy-to-navigate framework, each week she will guide you past the common and flashy rhetoric of ‘self-help’ and root you fervently in the center of your BEING Self!

Your participation is VITAL. You can either call in and chat LIVE or send in your questions prior. You won’t want to miss being an on-air participant in the debut of Expedition Self.

This week’s question is “How does creativity help you to build a more accepting relationship with ALL aspects of you?”

So often people will say they’re not creative, they can’t draw or make anything beautiful. If this is you, don’t fret! The kind of creativity we’ll be talking about during this inaugural show is the kind that’s woven into each and every person’s DNA. Meaning, anyone can get access to it!

Occupying the space between the left and the right brain, the creativity discussed in this week’s show serves as a sort of bridge. When traveled with intention, the result is a more substantive, satisfying relationship with YOUR ‘SELF’.

These new pathways can’t be found on rigid, well-worn streams of “familiarity” and can’t be seen with eyes that believe they know the way. Only through the vehicle of creativity can we see anew.

Listeners who thought they couldn’t even draw a stick figure before this show will leave feeling inspired to give this ‘creativity’ thing a shot in their pursuit of more career satisfaction, a better romantic relationship, or even healing from old emotional wounds. And it will reaffirm for the more creative types, the importance of providing diverse connections for the many, unique parts of the Self to interact and explore the world within.

Each week Sam discusses a different and highly accessible slice of building a stronger, deeper relationship with the inner Self so that YOU have the tools to become more and more whole.
