“If there was a crying pill our whole culture would be saved- there would be no more war…. I want people to think its not such a big deal to cry all the time. I love crying, it’s like taking the most beautiful dump.” ~ Jamie Catto

About this interview:


Where does true creative inspiration come from and how do we invite it in?

In this episode, Amisha sits down with creative catalyst, musician, and mischief-maker Jamie Catto.

Jamie seeks to serve as a ‘walking permission slip’ for people he meets, giving permission for himself and others to express themselves more fully and authentically in the world.

Together he and Amisha discuss the roots of suffering and melodrama in our lives, the influence of the patriarchy, and how listening holds the key to all that we seek. They share ideas on how to approach the work of reparation between women and men and how to build cooperation and equality between the masculine and feminine aspects of ourselves.

Jamie shares his perspective on the treasures that can be found in the painful experiences of life, speaking candidly about his experiences of panic attacks from a young age and how he has learned to avoid them with the help of YouTube videos about kindness. He shares this and other techniques he has learned for working with panic attacks, as well as with physical and emotional pain.

Amisha and Jamie round off the conversation by touching on his experiences of death and suicide, his relationship to creativity and the muse and where the true genius ideas come from.

“Think of [creativity] as a unicorn. People so want to make money out of their creativity. You end up saddling your unicorn like a donkey to carry your self esteem issues up a hill and it is not its job.” ~ Jamie Catto
