We had the good fortune of connecting with Lisa M Gunshore and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lisa M, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I have taken many risks in my career and in my life. I have found that when something lands from Spirit in my heart, I have to say yes no matter what. I don’t usually have any idea how to do what I’ve been given but I find a way. I also find that I am often supported by the unseen guides. One of the biggest risk I took was in 2009. I was in a meditation and had a vision of the Dalai Lama. I knew very little about Him and I wasn’t sure how to act on what I saw. I felt called to connect. with the Dalai Lama and was guided to look at his schedule. I saw that he would be speaking in California the very next week. I had very little money but found a ticket on Craigslist for $50. I bought it. A week went by and I happened to have enough unexpected client sessions that I had enough money to buy a ticket. I also asked a friend and was able to split the hotel costs with them. It was amazing that it all worked out. I went to California and saw His Holiness speak. That risk profoundly changed my life. I spent the next 7 years attending teachings if His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It changed my health, my relationships, and my career. Saying YES when you receive insight is the best risk you can take.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
As a production artist, I am excited about everything I am creating right now. However, Awakened Grace is the film series I am most proud of and excited about currently. Awakened Grace is a documentary series sharing stories of Awakening. Some of these stories are near death experiences and others are profound Lucid Dreams. Each one is unique and carries a unique teaching for us and why we are here in this world.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite spot to eat in town is Tru Foods. I have 22 food allergies and Tru Foods can deliver every time. It is so clean and always leaves me feeling great and high vibe when I am walking out after a meal.

My favorite hiking spot is Carpenter Peak in Roxborough Park. It is an epic hike with an equally epic view at the top.

My favorite bakery is Gluten Escape. If you want clean treats, this is the place to go.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Julie Hoyle profoundly changed my life. She has been an incredible support since 2007. Her guidance has been one of the most profound lifelines and led to complete transformation. Julie’s ability to point directly to what your challenges are speaking to is a gift of Grace. I could not begin to tell you the many things that have profoundly changed in my life because of her counseling and support.
