Craving for and attachment to feelings is what leads to suffering; on the flip side of that, awareness and understanding of our feelings can lead to Enlightenment. In this episode, I will share my thoughts around the Buddhist concept of feelings tones / Vedana.

"A student of Buddhism tries to unlearn something every day." What does it mean to "unlearn"? In this episode, I will share my thoughts around the notion of learning and unlearning in the context of practicing Buddhism.
164 - Thrown Out Of The Nest
One of the final teachings the Buddha gave, had to do with becoming an island unto yourself. In a way, he was telling his followers that it was time to leave the nest and to take refuge in themselves. In this episode, I will share my thoughts on this teaching.
This podcast gives an excellent look into Buddhism. It has taught me a lot and has made an important difference in my life.
When I can’t focus and I feel chaotic, I listen to an episode of this podcast and it brings me back to where I want to be. I’ve listened to every single ep. Even the ones I didn’t think would teach me something, all did.
I love this
I’ve been trying since I was 16 years old to comprehend Buddhism and understand the teachings. It is so hard to find a way to take the teachings and apply them to yourself when you are teaching yourself. This podcast has done so much to help me understand what Buddhism is trying to teach. Thank you so much for doing what you do! I am so grateful for it!
