Stillness in the Storms of Life

Why Stillness in the Storms?

Storms happen, life is not always sunshine and roses. If you want to be truly happy, we need to learn how to deal with the storms rather than trying to wish life always being the perfect conditions.

About Steven Webb the host

Stephen is somebody that has been through so much in life, when you hear a story you would not believe. He broke his neck when he was 18, ending up severely paralysed and permanently using an electric wheelchair.

That was after his family was homeless, living in a caravan when he was seven years old. If that was not enough, Steven's grandad committed suicide when Steven was 12. The one person he was closest to in the family.

Then returning home from hospital after becoming paralysed Stephen got on with a normal life, until eventually becoming bankrupt, losing his business and then finally hitting rock bottom becoming single at the age of 40.

It was a rough journey, but with many highs and there is nobody more positive and happy than Steven on a daily basis.

This podcast, it is where he shares his experience and the way he sees life. Through meditation, mindfulness and his writing Steven helps people all over the world find their inner peace.

About the Podcast

Stillness in the Storms
Helping you find Inner Peace in tough times
Welcome to "Stillness in the Storms," an inspiring journey towards finding inner peace amid life's relentless struggles, hosted by Steven Webb. This isn't just another podcast; it's a sanctuary where the chaotic noise of life mellows into serene silence and profound understanding.

Steven Webb, your guide on this journey, is not your average meditation and mindfulness coach. His life is a testament to resilience and transformation. Severely paralyzed in a diving accident in 1991, Steven did not let his physical condition define him. Instead, he used it as a springboard to dive deeper into the realms of human spirit and inner peace.

Now, as a dedicated politician and the Mayor of Truro since 2021, Steven continues to serve and inspire. His teachings are imbued with the wisdom of Zen Buddhism, particularly drawing from the profound words of Alan Watts and Shunryu Suzuki. He also integrates the pragmatic philosophy of Stoicism, inspired by thinkers like Marcus Aurelius, into his practice.

"Stillness in the Storms" is for everyone, but particularly those who find traditional methods of meditation and mindfulness challenging. Steven brings a practical approach, emphasizing that you don't need to escape to distant lands or retreats to find peace. It's right here, in the midst of your daily life.

Each episode illuminates new ways to see life, nudging you gently towards a more peaceful existence, even in the face of adversity. Steven's comforting voice, infused with genuine understanding and compassion, makes the podcast feel like a conversation with a dear friend.
