Thank you!

When I was attending medical school in Montreal, I discovered Bram’s yoga class. I’m so thankful for that! With the hectic and demanding schedule, I was suffering and dreamt of quitting on a daily basis. However Bram saved me. Every time I go to his class, I felt like he gave me CPR and I can go back to the (perceived) torture again. Now that I’m in Toronto, I’m itching for his class and his teaching. I’m sooooo thankful that Bram decided to start this podcast. Bram’s teachings and philosophy reminds me of the important things in life. Thank you!

A treasure

The Examined Life offers listeners a compendium of stories meant to inspire deeper thinking about how we can challenge ourselves to live fuller, more honest, and richer lives. It reminds us of the importance of remaining present in order to take care of ourselves and of each other. It is a treasure, left for the public by Bram Levinson, who is thoughtful, sometimes deeply philosophical, often whimsical and comical, to those of us who chose to listen and to hear his hopes for us and our world.

Bram, the voice of compassion

Bram is wise beyond measure; compassionate to a fault. Most sincerely recommended to anybody who feel that they are stumbling along the rocky path of life, in search of a little guidance or understanding. You will not leave disappointed.
