# 225 -- Gary Beacom - Part 1

Gary Beacom

In the spring of 2014, host of Living on Purpose, Lynn Thompson replied to an email out of the blue from Jeannette Gagan, author of Grow Up Your Ego: Ten Scientifically Validated Stages to Emotional and Spiritual Maturity. This connection evolved into a number of discussions between them, as well as extending to include Gary Beacom, independent thinker and innovative figure skater.

Here is the first in a series from the extensive recordings made by Skype and phone at that time.

Thanks for following Living on Purpose, and supporting the podcasts and all of rabble.
