    148 - The Dance Of Life

    148 - The Dance Of Life

    I love thinking about life as a great song, with high notes and low notes and quiet pauses in between each note. I like to think of my relationship to this song as the dance of life. In this episode, I will share my thoughts about going through life as if it were a dance instead of a fight.

    147 - Dharma Cat

    Life has a funny way of teaching us lessons even amidst circumstances or events that we don't particularly find to be pleasant. In this episode, I will share the story of how we ended up with a 3-legged cat as a pet.

    146 - The Freedom To Be You

    146 - The Freedom To Be You

    In this episode, I will talk about the idea of "branding". The story we have about ourselves is our personal brand and we do a lot to influence the way others perceive us. Practicing non-attachment to our brand may allow us to experience greater freedom to be ourselves.

    145 - The Quest For Answers

    In our search for answers to life's big questions, what if the question is actually more important than the answer? In this episode, I will talk about the quest for answers and how it may be more beneficial to focus on the quest for understanding the question.

    144 - The Game Of Emotions

    144 - The Game Of Emotions

    In this podcast episode, I will share some thoughts around the idea that we can change our relationship to our emotions by pretending that we're playing a game where the goal is to experience the full range of possible emotions.

    143 - Eye Of The Beholder

    143 - Eye Of The Beholder

    In this episode, I will talk about perception and the role it plays in how we experience our reality. Reality is in the eye of the beholder. “Dependent on the eye and forms, eye-consciousness arises...The meeting of the three is contact.”
    With contact as a requisite condition, there is feeling. What one feels, one perceives. What one perceives, one thinks about.

Easy, secular and accessible podcast on Buddhism

There are a wide range of topics covered on this podcast from a secular Buddhist lens. It’s really helped me in my own life, relationship with Buddhism and mediations. Thanks Noah!

Thank you!

Just listened to my first episode - making time for nothing - and it really resonated with where I am right now. I’m so looking forward to listening to back episodes!

Great advice and explanations

I enjoy this podcast but can you please get a better microphone? The audio quality is very poor.
