WHAT IS LACkING?
Episode 7: "What in this moment is lacking? And to answer, look, don't think." The words of my Zen Master spoken to me some 30 years ago continue to serve me and my students in profound ways. Join me in this episode and learn how they can help you reconnect with the nourishing simplicity present in each moment of your life.
Episode 6: Desire is a powerful force in our lives, and it's one that can too often lead us down a path that damages our health, our relationships, and and even career success. In this episode, we'll be exploring how cravings and desires are able to exert such control over us, and we'll learn how ancient wisdom can help us take back control once and for all.
RESISTANCE IS FUTILE
Episode 5: "You thank God for the good things that happen to you, but not for the bad. This is where you go wrong." These words were spoken by a great sage, Ramana Maharshi. In this episode, we'll be using them to investigating the invisible habit of psychological resistance that can overwhelm our lives with unnecessary suffering, and then look at how to skillfully use the practice of surrender to enjoy more calm, more joy, more often.
YOGA, THE BIBLE, & HAPPINESS
Episode 4: In this Q&A episode, we'll be exploring the answers to three listener questions. You'll about how enlightenment relates to happiness, how yoga relates to Biblical teachings, and how you can find peace and happiness right in this moment—even if you have a full and busy life.
THE PATH TO WHOLENESs
Episode 3: The Taoist Master, Chuang Tzu, invited us home to wholeness with his words "Come with me to the palace of nowhere, where all the many things are one." In this episode, we'll explore why the fullness of being can seem so elusive and look at techniques from yoga, meditation, and other traditions you can use to relax into the experience of your truest essence.
THE INNER SOLUTION
Episode 2: The Buddha taught that "your worst enemy cannot hurt you as much as your mind unguarded." In this episode, we'll explore how it is that your mind can work against you, and more importantly, how you can win it over to your side making it our greatest ally for creating a life of happiness, clarity, and ease.
WHAT ABOUT NOW?
Episode 1: The great Zen Master Eihei Dogen taught "if you cannot find the truth where you are now, you will never find it." In this episode, we'll explore this teaching to understand how these century-old words can have a dramatic impact on our lives today.
