In this episode of The Catalyze Podcast I interview Marjorie Warkentin. Marjorie Warkentin spent most of her working career as a nurse in a healthcare setting. As a woman that has a heart wired to care for others you can also find her spending time giving back to her community. She has actively supported overburdened families with young children, while also dedicating her time to creating community development as well as facilitating healthcare leadership development. Marjorie has also been a trailblazer in many areas of her life, one being the main income earner for her household, providing for her husband and three children way before that was a common situation. She also started running marathons in her fifties which inspires others to do the same. Marjorie has not let retirement slow her down. After leaving her full-time nursing career, she has embraced a new role of being a speaker, author and life coach. Marjorie is a life-long learner with a passion for connecting theory to the practical applications that lead to transformation. With her wealth of experience and broad perspective on life, she is able to share herwisdom in accessible and inspiring ways. In her second half of life, Marjorie is a glowing example of the life that is possible when you combine curiosity, compassion, and kindness with a willingness to be vulnerable and explore life's moments with abeginner's mind and playful spirit. She is passionate about modelling a life that can be lived with lightness and flow as she has learned to trust herself and be at peace with uncertainty. Marjorie is a wife, mother, and grandmother who lives in Abbotsford, BC. In our episode we talk about her upcoming book "Saying Yes to Life" and what it means to say yes to life, the power of play, connecting to your inner wisdom, writing and journaling practices you can engage with, and so much more!   You can find Marjorie here:  Website: @marjoriewarkentinFacebook: @marjorie.warkentin

In this episode of The Catalyze Podcast, I interview Elliott Cisneros of The Sum. During our conversation we discuss the importance of doing one's own inner work, allyship, how to stand in solidarity with other's, using one's privilege in allyship, and his work with The Sum.Elliott comes from a bi-cultural, biracial background with his father's line coming from Hispano ancestry in what is now New Mexico and his mother's people coming originally, from the Mayflower. This internal crossroads of diversity and power was one of the sparks for his passion for his learning and work at an early age. Elliott began his teaching career on  the Navajo reservation in special education.  He directed a school district transition program  serving students with disabilities for 8 years and went on to direct the Human Rights Office for the City  or Fort Collins. He taught social justice classes at Naropa University for 6 years, and worked as a  school principal both at a predominantly Latino elementary school, and at a progressive experiential middle school. He founded The Sum in 2006 ( After James Fields drove his car into a crowd in Charlottesville VA, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 40 others, Elliott moved to Charlottesville, in a camper. Here, he has started The Sum Study Center to support people's internal learning and empowerment across the full political spectrum (Alt-right to Antifa). He has partnered with the Heather Heyer Foundation to create a youth program called Heyer Voices ( Elliott founded an intentional community that represents a cross-racial, multicultural, interfaith and queer collaboration called Araminta Village ( And he has established a faith community, and faith community model based on the "sacredness of welcome to all" called The Welcome Circle ( He is currently working on two books: “The Power of our Differences” and “Sex and Social Justice.” In alignment with the Power of Difference Model which he developed in collaboration with Dr. Carla Sherrell, Elliott designed the Power of Difference Assessment (online), created the Power of Difference Video Project, and pioneered the online Power of Difference Online Certification. You can find Elliott here: Website:
