If you’ve ever wanted less stress and a deeper night’s sleep, then do we have the “Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water” show for you.

Today I’ll be talking with Brian Luke Seaward, stress-management expert, the producer of a stunningly beautiful documentary Earth Songs, and the author of at least 16 or more books including a life-transforming stress-reducing book, “Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water” and a beautiful book on sleep, “A Good Night’s Sleep”.

And that’s just what I want to talk with him about today, about getting our stress way down, to get our sleep way up.




Every once in a great while, perhaps in high school, more likely college, we encounter a teacher who inspires us, who gives us a new outlook on life, who in a short time, becomes our mentor, role model, and friend. Teachers like these “who touch our hearts and change so many lives,” are the unsung heroes of humanity. By all accounts, Brian Luke Seaward is one such teacher. He’s passionate, witty, humorous, and perhaps most of all, inspiring. He truly touches hearts, and most anyone will tell you, this is how he heals. Teaching is healing, and through his teachings, he offers a unique synthesis of insights blending the “ageless wisdom” of human spirituality with the topic of stress to reveal the unique alchemy of humanity and divinity, what we call the “human journey.”

Brian Luke Seaward is renowned nationally and internationally as an expert in the field of stress management, mind-body-spirit healing and corporate health promotion. The wisdom of Brian Luke Seaward, a TEDx speaker, can be found quoted in PBS specials, college lectures, medical seminars, boardroom meetings, church sermons, keynote addresses, and graduation speeches all over the world. It has been said that he looks like James Taylor, dresses like Indiana Jones, and writes like Mark Twain. In the role of traveler, visionary, mystic, healer and mentor, Brian Luke Seaward has created a legacy in the field of wellness and health promotion for all to share.
