A podcast for secular-minded people interested in learning about Buddhist philosophy and teachings.
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
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.
142 - Wisdom and Fear
"Some see something to fear where there is nothing to fear, and some see nothing to fear where there is something to fear." In this episode, I will talk about fear from a Buddhist perspective. Fear is universal but there are perhaps some fears that are skillful and others that are unskilful.
141 - Smarter Not Harder
I'm sure you've heard the expression "work smarter, not harder". In this episode, I will share my throughs regarding Skillful Effort of the Eightfold Path and how it pertains to not only mindfulness practice but to everything we do in life.

Noah is incredibly genuine and present
I just listened to the episode on the parable of the strawberry. It is hard to describe just how connected I felt to Noah as I heard is voice crack as he held his tears while explaining the importance of the parable to him.
This amazing man is so wonderfully filled with and connected to his emotions and spirit. I teared up myself while listening.
Thank you for all you do Noah. You help me centre myself when times are tough, look forward to the happy times, and then prepare again for the tough ones which make me happiness all the sweeter. Just like the Strawberry.
Peace be with you ✌️
Become a better whatever you already are
I am just starting to learn about Buddhism and I love this podcast. The ideas challenge my thinking and relax me at the same time. Everything is at once outside of my current understanding and relatable. Listening regularly has become one of my favorite life practices. Highly recommend.
