Now, on to our guest. Stef Sifandos is a relational alchemist, international speaker, and author. Stef is also a co-founder of a startup that offers content related to personal growth. Now, if the concept of relational alchemy threw you off somewhat, don't you worry as this is exactly what we have decided to unpack on this episode for the listeners.
Stef and I enjoyed this conversation as we chatted about belief systems, the power of language, handling pain and creating positivity out of it. Some of the specific areas we talked about are:Bali and the startup that he’s been involved in. (02:24) The services he offers via StefSifandos.com providing people a space to gain clarity, transform their lives and improve their relationships. (09:08) What alchemy and relationship alchemy means. (11:36) The importance of being in a relationship and/or with a partner that allows us to be of service to something greater than ourselves. (21:41) Ways that ignorance can be healthy, the role of language in our perception of the world, and the various factors that influence our lives. (29:55) Two ways to grow and learn effectively through our own and others’ experiences. (42:55) Understanding the nine areas of life for better personal growth. (46:16) The importance of gaining clarity of our purpose in to attract the relationship we desire and a life of happiness, wellness, and compassion.
