140. The Ten Terrains of Consciousness with Alan David Reed and Tahnee Woolf.

The creators of The ‘Ten Terrains Of Consciousness’ model Alan David Reed and Tahnee Woolf are Dr. Brad Miller’s guests on Episode 140 of “The Beyond Adversity Podcast.”

The ‘Ten Terrains Of Consciousness’ Model is a response to other systems of self-knowledge, such as Astrological Star Signs, the Enneagram, Myers-Briggs, DISC, Human Design, Gene Keys, Wealth Dynamics, and Reichian Characterology.

The ‘Ten Terrains Of Consciousness’ Model does not tell you what ‘type’ you are. Instead, It helps you understand your fundamental relationship with reality at this point in your spiritual development. This creates the basis for your core perceptions, the way you think, your worldview, your values, your behaviors, and your actions.

Alan David Reed and Tahnee Woolf share with Dr. Brad in great detail how they met and discovered their complementary set of skills and interests and partnered together to uncover and create ‘Ten Terrains Of Consciousness’ through their own deep introspection and the researching of trends and evolutionary patterns of humanity.

What evolves in Episode 140 of The Beyond Adversity Podcast is a fascinating conversation about the very nature of humanness itself and the discovery of a process and tools which will help the person seeking personal transformation to respond to questions like…

Are seeking to…

KNOW YOURSELF more deeply?

GET ALONG BETTER with friends and family?

MEET LIKE-MINDED PEOPLE who are just like you?

HAVE PEACE OF MIND about what is happening in our world?


The purpose of “The Beyond Adversity Podcast” is to help people navigate adverse conditions in their life (disease, death, divorce, debt, depression) and emerge to a life of peace prosperity, and purpose.

139. How to Survive and Thrive After a Business Partnership Collapses with David Branderhorst

David Branderhorst’s life was cruising along with a successful business endeavor when a series of adverse events came at him rapid fire.

In the midst of the Covid crisis his mother became sick and lost her life, his wife lost her job and his long-time business partnership dissolved suddenly and painfully threatening his very livelihood.

How David Branderhorst survived and thrived beyond this series of adverse events is the story that Dr. Brad Miller unpacks on Episode number 139 of The Beyond Adversity Podcast.

David Branderhorst describes for Dr. Brad how this series of adverse events was a gut check time for him personally and for his family and how he had to choose whether to collapse and give up under the pressure (as he had seen many others do) or to see the series of adversities as an opportunity for tremendous growth and an opportunity to redefine his life.

David described to Dr. Brad his love of the true nature of business itself which is to solve problems and serve people.

He talked about the four words from God which guided him in this transformation…” I Am Your Source” and then proceeded to share with Dr. Brad his process of creating a new business of coaching others who similarly are looking to become the person God created them to be.

He outlined a process based on a profound belief in calling, being persistent in your pursuit, and defining your outcome as keys to developing a God-honoring business.

He calls this process “Design, Launch and Grow” which he details at https://davidbranderhorst.com/.

This is a great comeback story that will serve well those facing adverse conditions in their business life.

The Beyond Adversity Podcast is produced weekly by Dr. Brad Miller with the purpose of helping people navigate debilitating adverse life events (Death, Debt, Disease, Divorce, Depression) and emerge to a renewed life of peace, prosperity, and purpose.
