About The Show Archives

I’d like to take this moment to thank all of the viewers,  listeners, guests and financial contributors who’ve helped to grow this online chat show! Without you there wouldn’t be the amazing adventure we’ve been having! It is my sincere hope to be able to bring you more insight, more health shows, more exploration into higher visions in the New Year!

All the World's a Stage Happy New Year 2016.001

As many of you know this has been a one woman production and I jumped into it on a shoestring budget. The passion for exploring is what brought me to this venue and that will not change. However as I look to the new year I also am open to exploring other ways of sharing.

I’m certain there are better ways of making this expansion self sufficient and financially viable and I’ll take it wherever it leads. If you feel called to support the continuing shows’ expansion financially, you can sponsor or advertise here, and you can donate at the bottom of this page too…this is not meant as a fundraiser, however financial support is required to continue in this manner. Perhaps other avenues will reveal themselves.

This 2015 has completed 8 Seasons of delicious exploration and if there is a call for more, I am certain the Universe will deliver all the resources needed. I look forward to discovering the appropriate direction.

Many blessings to all of you! May there be peace, joy, abundance and prosperity for one and all in 2016!

Wisdom Of The Camino~Ariana Brackenbury

Introducing a new guest on Lets Get Real Chattin with Catherine

…exploring higher visions doesn’t get much better than this…

Watch for the show broadcast links coming soon…prepare to be inspired and awed …Ariana is very real..has walked the Camino and gained wisdom and so much more!

Ariana Brackenbury – International Inspirational Speaker, Writer, Mentor, Camino Coach and Tour Guide.

When Ariana’s husband passed at 62, his death launched her into a deeper journey of her own mortality, and opened her heart to her spiritual self. Watching him die with so many dreams in him, gave her a sense of urgency in her own life. She began a deep inner journey.

Promote poster for guests Ariana Brackenbury.001

Then a series of events – the loss of her savings, her computer programming business slowing to a halt, and finally I losing her beautiful home and garden – was the impetus for deeper change in her life.

She found herself in a place where she had no capacity to even process what was happening to her, let alone what was possible. At the age of 60, it was clear that she had no option, but to start over. She just had no idea how she could recreate herself.

Ariana took a leap of faith and set off on a life changing journey – a 100 day backpacking trip around the world, including walking the Camino de Santiago, a 800 KM spiritual pilgrimage in Northern Spain. That journey opened up life in a way she had never dreamed could be possible.

Two years later she walked again and made the decision to create a spiritual tour company guiding others to use spiritual pilgrimage as a means to finding truth within themselves.

Poster Ariana image002Her coaching focuses on finding the blocks that are holding people from living a deeper, more meaningful life and helping them connect to the wisdom in their heart.

Banner posters~exploring higher visions 8.001I’m super excited to let you know about a new social media site besides facebook for discussing and exploring. It’s called MeWe

I’ve created a couple of groups there so that people wanting to explore specifics about the different show topics, give us feedback, suggest guests and so on can do so. Also I have a group called Making Friends with Death; which you are also invited to participate in.

There will be a main page for all kinds of discussion as I do on facebook now. What I love about this new site is that they have a commitment to keep our content private. No spying. I think it is so important for us to be able to chat about things that matter without worrying about who’s listening in, or using information to market to us.

You will have to sign up for your own account, but it is free and then the links will take you to the groups and my page.

Thanks so much and I look forward to continuing our conversation. I imagine that as time goes on I will phase out the posts on facebook, but for now I’ll have both to allow for people to move over if they wish to do so.

So here are the links: The Main Page  and Making Friends with Death (group page) and LGRCC.com Exploring Higher Visions (group)

Many blessings

Happy New Year 2014!

musical notes around globe goldenHello dear friends,

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy, safe, prosperous New Year!

We’ve had a very busy year at Lets Get Real Chattin with Catherine and I look forward to be able to bring you more exciting, interesting and thought provoking shows in the new year. I intend to seek out companies who are committed to working in an ethical manner with their employees, the environment and who are creating products that many of us are looking for.

Rather than focusing on what we don’t want, I’d like to invite those companies to share with us so we know we have options. Many of us would choose to support ethical companies, but we need to know they exist and where to find them and their products.

If we knew which ones were the kinds of companies we would want to work with, the kinds that respect and value their employees, the environment and are making products we really want; such as non-gmo’s, animals treated well, full disclosure on ingredients, healthy working conditions for their employees etc., then we would certainly support them.

The problem is we really are overwhelmed with negatives. If we are out here looking for positive ways to live, then surely there are companies doing the same thing; after all companies are run by people like you and me. So please share this with anyone you feel has something of value to contribute to this mission. I will do my best to research on my own, but it’s much easier to have people helping to get the word out.

To recap some of the shows you may have missed in the last few weeks… We explored with Angela Ditch the author of Avatar Anatomy. She shared her journey to writing the book which is a great tool and  insight for anyone feeling called to a spiritual journey of self awareness and more.

We chatted with Madelaine Standing about Transcending Trauma, and she shared her experience with rape as well as how she overcame it, as well as some of the tools she now uses to help others. She will be back in the new year to explore further into this very interesting topic.

Shelly Dressel joined me for another insightful channeled message about what’s happening on the planet at this time, including the energy of the Winter Solstice and more.

Teza Zialcita shared her new book Universal Conscious Self, as well as how she came to write the book, her near death experience at the age of two, abortion, healing and Akashic Records too! Teza is going to be back in the new year as we go further into exploring with her and her unique wisdom.

We had another episode of Go Deep or Go Home, ‘exploring the metaphysical’…a series of explorations with Debbi Coleen into the deep aspects of metaphysical understandings…this latest episode we talked about Karma and the significance of dates. Very interesting sharing!

Julia Maria Lloyd joined me to talk about Her journey to radical bliss and the Sacred Money Archetypes~she’ll be back in the new year (Jan 14, 2014) for a live show at 8pm MT and you can call in with questions too!  In the meantime you can get your free assessment by visiting the link here. Very insightful to do the assessment and see what it means for you.

Rose Sangregorio also joined me for another insightful chat…we caught up on the years events, and what we might expect to come. Rose is the founder and director of the Metaphysical Center of Canada Corporation and it’s always great to here what her wisdom tells her. Rose has some year end events and upcoming pilgrimages and more for 2014; you can get more info by visiting her profile page here.

Steven Cuoco joined me to talk about his work as an Intuitive Publicist and he’ll be back Jan. 23, 2014 at 8pm MT Live and he’s agreed to take your calls! We’ll be getting into more of what he does, who would benefit from his work and what it’s all about. So mark your calendars !

Next show~January 6, 2014 at 8pm MT~ you can listen to Barbara Cunnings-Versaevel as we discussed her online resource ‘Cancer Help Hub’ which is designed to help people going through cancer, those who’ve recovered and their families. Barbara shared her journey through being diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer in 1990 and what that was like, what she learned and how she has become empowered through this journey.

Many new shows and guests are coming soon…please visit the guest link on the top navigation bar to read profiles and see what services they might be offering. Check the show page listing for the new dates too!

Blessings to you all…please do not drink and drive this holiday season! Life is a gift, let’s not waste it or throw it away! You are a gift and many people are counting on you to share it!

Talk to you soon…until next time…take care!

A great opportunity for a Hand UP!

Catherine superimposed orange sky.001

Can you give a woman a hand…I mean vote?

Many of you have been with me since the beginning of this show and you’ve been so supportive and understanding; even when I was dealing with the tragic death of my son in March 2012. The show did go on, albeit I didn’t look so great in some of those videos; oh well! The content was excellent and that is what mattered.

I started the show for fun and especially because I had been doing some very deep exploring with one of my regular guests now, Debbi Coleen and we kept having such powerful information come up that we decided, it was too good and juicy to keep to ourselves. From there it has expanded to giving people an opportunity to learn along with us, to showcase people’s gifts and talents and to get to know people all over the world.
Now it’s time to expand as I feel so joyful to see all the people listening/viewing the show, learning and loving it; along with so many people with great wisdom to share and help us thrive on this planet. Many of you have asked me over the years how can I help you Catherine? Frankly I didn’t know what to ask for. Some people suggested I should be well paid for my contributions and I agree, however my goal was not about the money, it was about the freedom and empowerment. The ability to freely express views that were not heard on mainstream was my utmost mission. At first the cost was minimal for me; however that has changed drastically! Now the time I dedicate to the show, the research and production is my life. Now I realize that money is a tool; one which enables and supports that freedom.

So yes, now it is time to ask for a hand up. I do appreciate the donations and the advertising, however since I haven’t made it a focus, those funds are not enough to make this viable. Yet! I am now prepared to allow more advertising on the shows; as long as they are in keeping with my intention of truth, integrity, authenticity!

Side Note: I will never endorse ‘liver’…no matter how much chocolate you cover liver with, or blend it up, or mask it, I will never endorse it. The same with milk…unless it is milk chocolate…that’s entirely different! If I believe in your product, or can see the benefit of it, then it’s probably going to fit with the show and our viewers. I will not be inviting ‘big pharma’ to advertise, because I don’t believe in it. Yes there are certain things that I think are vital for our lives, but I usually have found that there is a natural product that will do the same job, or even better.

Right now I’m asking you to help me in a different way; there is a contest with Intuit Quickbooks for small businesses, it only requires that you vote once a day! My company could win $5,000.00 or one of several smaller amounts. That would go a long way towards a new computer and software to help me create an even better product and reach more people. What do you say…will you vote? Can you share this post with your friends and encourage them to vote once a day? Here is the link to vote everyday… bookmark it if that helps remind you! (Sorry the first link didn’t work;)

Bless you and thank you all! I know it’s going to be an amazing new season in January and the rest of this year is looking awesome as well!
Many thanks

Ania Basak~Fashion Calgary Portrait Campaign

I’m so thrilled to be chattin with Ania Basak, in a conversation about the very awesome event Fashion Calgary Portrait Campaign. POSTERFCPC2013S-1

Why this show on LGRCC? Because many years ago when I was in politics, a WWII Vet who became an art teacher, told me (I paraphrase from memory) that he was concerned about the arts, sports, dance and music being taken out of the schools…‘these are the people who imagine a better world and do not thirst for war!’ I feel the same way. This is the world of potential that I long to see thrive.


Globe with headphonesThe LGRCC chat  will air on Oct 7th, 2013 at 8pm Mountain Time, 7 pm Pacific and 10 pm Eastern. It’ll be available to listen in replay 24/7  thereafter. (same link for original broadcast or replay)

Inspired by people with passion…


Here’s the Fashion Calgary Portrait Campaign 2013 event being held on October 24, 2013 that we’ll be chatting about 57891_10151288021889714_2080713052_n

Tune in for more details and find out what Calgary, Alberta Canada has to offer in the way of culture, fashion, music and more! This is a high vibration event and that’s where I believe our exquisite world comes from…engaging the cultural creatives who see the world in a new, vibrant and joyful energy!

I thought it would be fun to expand what is already happening on Lets Get Real Chattin with Catherine , a production of Catherine Publishing! We are having so much fun, I decided  to reach out farther and higher, to include more views, more wisdom and knowledge in more exciting ways!

I’ve had this vision of an Exquisite World since my days in politics. I am letting you know that my vision is beginning to unfold in new and glorious ways. I’m so grateful to all the souls who are encouraging me and supporting the team in cooperation and enthusiasm. I will be expanding to a network of shows in the next few weeks; the actual launch is yet to be determined. My vision is to host a network where many voices can connect from all around the globe, so we can get to know each other better. I see it is time to bring all that wisdom so many of us have been learning from a spiritual expansion into the practical application. It’s time to BE the spiritual beings having a human experience, in a very real way! It’s not enough to know anymore, we are so ready to apply our new knowledge and old wisdom in very joyful ways!

It’s also feeling like the time to bring positive stories to those of you who are seeking them. We all know that there are many great things happening all over the world, but we don’t often hear about those things. It is my intention to bring that kind of material to you. Most of us know that like vibration attracts like, so the more positive messages spilling out over the airwaves and into people’s lives, the more positive lives we will perceive. That is my heartfelt belief!

If you have an idea, or you want to be involved in these early days of it’s creation please contact me through the contact link on the website. The new network is called Exquisite World Global Network, or EWGN for short. Here is a recent video I made sharing the announcement

I welcome your feedback, ideas, financial support to help us launch this as soon as possible. You are welcome to make a donation through the donate button! You’ll be able to tell your friends, ‘Yes, I am contributing to an Exquisite World Global Network’ ! and we’ll all benefit from that contribution!

Many thanks

Chats To Move Us Out Of Comfortable & Into Exquisite!

Catherine Whelan Costen is the host of the Lets Get Real Chattin’ With Catherine, on-line radio show. As a facilitator, she brings her spiritual awareness and warmth in hosting the tele-course.

Catherine Whelan Costen is the host/producer of the Lets Get Real Chattin’ With Catherine, on-line radio shows

Welcome to “Lets Get Real ~ Chattin’ With Catherine” 


I believe the vast majority of people on this planet want peace!

I am more committed than ever to my belief that we can create an exquisite world!

We have the Ingredients & Recipe for an Exquisite World! Let’s Stir it up














Fear is driving so many of our decisions these days, even though love is far more powerful! I believe talking to each other can alleviate much fear. I love to explore, to have fun and share!  I so love this planet and the adventure we call life! Many of you share my beliefs and are looking for people and avenues to explore…and that’s what we do here on Lets Get Real Chattin with Catherine!

We need to ensure that our footprint is light. A light one in that when we leave this world we leave it a better place than what we found, for our children and our children’s’ children.

I invite you into my world, through this compilation which is the result of many facets of my explorations and understandings about life. It is my intention and hope, that as I share with you, you can also see a vision that might be a little brighter than the one that you currently have.

I’m not saying I have all the answers, I certainly don’t, in fact the more I know, the more I know how little I know. However the discoveries I have made have been very enlightening to me, very joyful and I want to share that as much as possible with people who are willing to learn, willing to investigate and willing to change, perhaps. Change is inevitable, but doing it consciously is so empowering and I’m thrilled to be able to provide the information that I can.

Consciousness is rising and we are the change! I invite you to explore with us, to support the shows and to share your vision with us. (feedback is great! advertising is available to reach like minded people and opportunities to be a guest are also options for you)

Between the written articles, the youtube videos and the regular radio shows, I hope you will find what you are looking for to deepen and expand your view.


I am a passionate & inspirational public speaker on various topics, including but not limited to: finding your voice, healing life’s bumps or mountains, seeing the purpose in all life’s challenges, what fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue did for me, conscious parenting and including losing a child through death; I love to empower and inspire others to live their best lives.

You can listen to one audio of a public speaking engagement I did several years ago at this link. It was titled ‘A Better World’: Can Women Leaders Make it Happen?” There you can listen to my presentation and then the audiences questions and my answers. This is a topic I am very passionate about and you may be surprised by my thoughts.




I had the delicious opportunity and privilege to research, write and publish, “Father Walter Krewski’s Life Journey” you can visit the link on the sidebar. This book was written prior to his death and offers the reader an opportunity to explore what it was like living in rural Alberta, Canada, in the early 1900s joining the Roman Catholic priesthood and the challenges faced as a parish priest. He was a remarkable yet simple man and had great wisdom to share.

Wisdom and new information feels like a tall glass of refreshing water on a very hot day to me! I hope to sweeten your journey if only by a teaspoon!  My guests are delightful and fun even if the subject is deep and mysterious, so please join us!

The times are very challenging, but the tools are available and more and more is coming to light of what we can do to create an environment where we can all live in harmony and thrive. really thrive.

I really want to take the time to thank you for visiting my world! I surely do appreciate any feedback through my email address or the comments area. Please visit us on facebook for more interaction!

Many many blessings to you, wherever you are, and no matter what you believe,


Many thanks for the Photos of Catherine~ June 23, 2012 to Carolyn Sandstrom (Okotoks) at www.carolynsandstrom.com

Dreams and Business & Health too!

The launch of the new 2013 season began this evening with my guest Debbi Coleen exploring dreams and their meanings, why we dream, what they can mean and also how we can use them for healing relationships! You can listen via the show page.

On Thursday Jan 10th, I’ll be chattin with Debra Kasowski about her new book coming out soon, The Entrepreneurial Mom’s guide to Growing a Business, Raising a Family, and Creating a Life You Love! I’m so curious to find out how we can do all of that at once? Aren’t you? I’m sure Debra is going to offer us some great tips!

Earlier this week, I also shared my story and experience of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and what it meant for me in my personal growth; the show is available on the show page as well. There are several new youtube videos, and I intend to create some short videos to update you on the show each week, so please subscribe to the youtube channel if you’d like to get notifications when new videos are uploaded.

If you are not already following me on the facebook fanpage I’d love to hear from you there too…and you are welcome to follow me on twitter too! All the links are on the sidebar, top panel!

I’m looking forward to the new season and sharing great guests, awesome insight and wisdom…together we are creating an exquisite world!

This video was created to help my guests learn about the show !

Happy New Year 2013! What’s Next?

A little informal video from Catherine wishing you all a happy new year and letting you know what to expect in the next few weeks.

*Catherine Wishing you Happy New year* via youtube (click the link)!

I invite you to Donate to help support the show…or sponsor a show…all the info is here and if you scroll down on that page, you’ll find the donate button too!

I certainly appreciate all the people who share my vision for an exquisite world and know that information is a vital part of that process. The show is free for people to listen 24/7, that is my commitment. There are not a lot of options for alternative media at the present time and I feel strongly that our ability to create something new is dependent on our ability to speak freely. I am doing my part, but I know I cannot do it alone, we who believe in being light and desiring to share it, need venues like this to get the message out!

If you feel that way too…please consider supporting this venue!

Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for you all in the New Year!

I am working on some changes for LGRCC and looking forward to the new also. I intend to cover more subjects this year, including more depth on financial issues, more political areas and social issues. I will continue to chat with metaphysical experts and healers working with alternative health options of course. I would also like to bring more musicians and comedians on to the show to round out the format. Feel free to share this information with people you know who may be interested in the show.

As many of you know I started the show with a very basic blogtalk radio program, but the quality of the audio was intermittent and not very reliable. The show was birthed for fun, to give people who otherwise were not being seen the chance to be seen/heard by many. I have a passion for learning and exploring and I knew that other people were also seeking. The show has grown in numbers of listens exponentially! I’m thrilled! It is giving many guests the exposure they wouldn’t otherwise receive. I also promote guests through my social media outlets and all of these things take time, my gifts in interviewing, technology and so on. Although I really started it for fun, it has grown into something more demanding of my time as well as new technology and although still fun, it requires financial support and more structure to continue to grow and be a venue for education and enlightenment. As you have been part of this process in 2012 I invite you to return if you feel called in this direction. Please contact me as soon as possible to set dates for January and February 2013.

Here are some of the changes you’ll see for 2013:

The shows will be limited to one hour rather than the loose time frame I’ve had thus far. Presently I have 3 live shows a week and that may change to having one 2 hour show a week and one 1 hour; that is being explored. I will be reviewing options for doing onsite interviews and looking into higher quality video options also.

At this time I’d also like to share some tips on how to make the most from your experience as a guest on Let’s Get Real Chattin with Catherine. With over 108 shows last season, from February to November 2012 I’ve had the opportunity to review what works and what doesn’t. I’ve received some feedback from guests and I always look forward to hearing from you, your testimonials and comments are very helpful! Guests who report the best experience and usually have the most listens per show as well as feedback from the public, do some very different things than those who do not. Here are my observations of what works:

Promote the show prior to your visit. Use social media, twitter, facebook, linkedin, your blog and email lists to share the show links and invite people to listen, after the show write about your experience, a few words to express your thoughts and personalize it makes all the difference. Support other guests who’ve been on the show by sharing their links, especially if you can speak to the content of the show because you’ve listened to it. Your enthusiasm for the show reflects in the way people talk about it and share with others. The guests who’ve invested in the show monetarily as well as with their time, are receiving a return on their investment in various ways. Be prepared and letme know if there is a specific area you want to focus on, or something important you have learned and feel called to share. If I know in advance I can direct our conversation to that area.

As of January 2013 I will be setting a  New Minimal Administration fee for guests to help cover costs for the systems/technology used to produce and broadcast shows. I am asking for a contribution from each guest of a $50.00 minimum for each show guest. Regular or bi-monthly guests will have a reduced rate of $30.00 per show. Guests are welcome to make a donation in addition to that fee if you feel called to assist in that way. The payments buttons for paypal are on the website. Bank draft is also acceptable by mail, but must be received before the show will be booked or advertised. I feel this is a reasonable request to make at this time in order to grow the show. My commitment to keeping it free for listeners is paramount to being able to reach more people. (Paypal buttons will be ready for you to use shortly)

Even if you’ve been a guest in the past a New 2013 Guest Agreement (click link and scroll down for doc) is required to be signed prior to booking show time and fees must be paid for future shows. If you are planning on being on the show in 2013 but are not booked yet, please read it here. A copy will be sent to you via Echosign, once a date is set with the producer. Thank you for your continued support and enthusiam for Lets Get Real Chattin with Catherine! Please accept my gratitude and support for your work as well.

*Note to Authors: if you have a book you want to promote on the show, please send me a copy via Canada Post, or pdf format via email with at least 3 weeks prep time before you are booked to be a guest. This enables the chat to be more engaging for the audience and for me.

I look forward to working with you in 2013!

Maggie Thom author of Captured Lies

Today’s featured video is a chat with Maggie Thom, author of Captured Lies…a fictional story which I found to be a fast paced read, intriguing and delicious to read!

Come and meet the author here

As part of the growth of Lets Get Real Chattin with Catherine, and in recognition of listeners from all over the globe, I decided to create a meetup group for connecting more people. I will post the shows on the meetup page, where we can share what you liked about the show, you can suggest topics and guest etc. I am also encouraging sponsors to offer my LGR Chatters perks, so watch for that!  I am also encouraging people to create in person meetups and let me know, so I can post the date, time and place, for the in person chats about the show topics etc. Even if I am not able to attend at this time, the more we come together to learn about each other the better world we can create.

My intention is also to find out where my listeners are located so that I can begin to plan some travel to various places and do some in person chats with interesting people. It would be great to have a live audience for some of these also!

Please go to the link and sign up, I confess I’m not an expert on this yet…but here it is http://www.meetup.com/Lets-Get-Real-Chattin-with-Catherine-about-exquisite-world/

You can let me know if you would like me to include your community in next years travel schedule and I’d love to hear your suggestions for topics and guests.

We can create an exquisite world…and to start with I think we need to get to know each other!
