Access your Awareness to Confidence with Sophie McLean

My guest this week is Sophie McLean the Founder of Access Awareness.

To describe Sophie McLean’s life as “eventful” would be quite an understatement. She’s been a helicopter pilot, a teacher, a designer, a relief worker, a war refugee, a CEO, and a UN Representative; she’s been shot at, shipwrecked, and widowed. As a wisdom teacher, Sophie has spent decades leading transformational seminars to over 80,000 people globally, examining the human network of ideas, beliefs, consciousness, and ego.

Sophie McLean's mission is to contribute to the creation of a new culture for humankind; or the shift from Homo Sapiens to Homo Spiritus, as Dr. David Hawkins so beautifully wrote.

Sophie's seminar and podcast topics span both human and metaphysical dimensions – exposing and deconstructing the automatic ego, consciousness, freedom, love, stress, anxiety, fear, relationships, health, sex, money, ownership, leadership, spirituality, creation and evolution, the feminine and the masculine, responsibility, and making an effective, actionable difference in the world.

Sophie engages people in a rigorous review of their life and a systematic questioning of their conclusions on the basis that without examining our network of ideas, beliefs, social and cultural judgments, and our assumptions about the world, those are transformed into constraints. Her interest is in the nature of what it means to be human.

Sophie's book, The Elegance of Simplicity: A Wisdom Teacher's Epic Journey to Awareness, is a compelling, thought-provoking work of autobiographical fiction, one that communicates life-altering concepts proposing an effortless pathway to awareness. It’s a deeply authentic and dramatic story of self-discovery, about what is possible when you take responsibility, own your power, and become one with life.

In Sophie McLean's life and work, she strives to bring elegance, worldly experience, grit, courage, and insight leading to revelation and transformation.

If you enjoyed this episode or any of the Women In Confidence episodes, please rate, review and share so that other listeners can find us.

Melbourne (where I live) is currently receiving a year's worth of rain in a couple of days so you might be able to hear that in the background of this recording. I did think about taking it out of the recording but that is something only a highly skilled sound engineer could do and also it makes this podcast real.

If you want to be a guest or know someone who would like to appear on the show please get in touch on contact@vanessa-murphy.com. I am setting myself up for Season 6 and I am on the look out for interesting women to talk to.

Profile picture for Vanessa Murphy

Vanessa Murphy

Vanessa is a HR and Company Culture Consultant, a Confidence Coach and a Podcast Host.
Vanessa got her first proper job in 1998 when she joined as an Officer in the Royal Navy and then after 15 years doing that, she transitioned into senior HR and Culture roles working for organisations all over the world.
She now has 2 strings to her bow....
Firstly, she is an empath, avid people watcher and she likes to observe people when they were operating with confidence and self-belief and learn strategies, tools and techniques from them. She helps women with confidence at work and her Women In Confidence podcast is a way for her to share her knowledge and her network with a wider audience.

Secondly, she has always been fascinated by what makes a company great to work for and now devotes her time to creating workplaces that not only have impressive performance but are also human centred - hint... they are not mutually exclusive. Her Conversations About Company Culture podcast is her way of sharing ways to build great organisations.
