He has enjoyed more than 20 years as an early childhood and elementary education professional and has served as a classroom teacher, principal, director of curriculum and insruction, and adjunct professor.

    Episode 28: Interview with Ben Gioia

    Episode 28: Interview with Ben Gioia

    Ben Gioia (“joya”) is a two-time best-selling author, speaker, and creator of the Influence With A Heart® Method. If you have a BIG IDEA, Ben will teach you how to write your #1 best selling book — in 5 weeks — and position yourself for a media explosion (and more) in 3 months.

    Ben helped a Fortune 100 company shift culture, trained leaders at Stanford, launched the world's biggest magazine, and created video game with MIT to transform employee resilience and customer experience.

    Ben’s signature talk, The Buddha Smile, shows people how to quit suffering. His teachings are used by 30,000+ people around the world.
    The foundation of Ben’s work, in his own words, is “mindfulness and loving-kindness” and bringing that into the business space openly and publicly. In our interview Ben talks publicly for the first time about an experience he had with his meditation teacher that allowed him to let go of ALL the doubt and that inner critical voice that holds so many of us back. I am very inspired by the way Ben integrates his contemplative practice into his professional life as a coach, speaker, and author.

    Episode 27 - Interview with Dr. Robert Waldinger

    Dr. Waldinger has one of the most viewed Ted Talks of all time, with over 100 million views – it’s called “What Makes for a Good Life?” Just to give you a teaser, he gives us the answer to what makes for happiness in just two words, within the first five minutes of the show! Bob Waldinger is also a clinical psychiatrist at Harvard and the current Director of the Harvard Study on Adult Development. The study began in 1938, it’s now in its 83rd year, it is the longest running research study ever conducted. To top it all off, Bob is also a Zen Buddhist priest! I had the good fortune of being on a Zoom call with Bob recently, and I immediately emailed him to invite him to be a guest. Amid a very busy and stressful time, he graciously said yes, and now we all get to share in the benefits. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did conducting the interview!

    Episode 26 - Interview with Nick Zolfo

    Episode 26 - Interview with Nick Zolfo

    For this episode I am your co-host, along with Nick Zolfo, the host of the podcast “Catching ZZ’s: A Millennial’s Guide to Mindfulness.” Nick and I were introduced by a mutual colleague, and we realized that we have a very similar purpose behind our podcasts – which is to highlight the wisdom of others’ spiritual practices and share it with as many people as possible. Since we are so aligned, we decided to make this a co-interview, just taking turns interviewing each other about meditation practices, podcasts, and how we apply our practice to daily life and sharing our passion with others.

    Nick Zolfo is a podcast host, meditation teacher, and community builder. He brings experience with 4.5 years of his own meditation practice, coursework in mindfulness, including SIYLI 2 day training, and 3 years of hosting the Catching Z's podcast. He seeks to help others explore their minds and develop their own practice.

    Catching Z's does this by sharing stories of people with diverse backgrounds about how they've developed a spiritual practice and how everyone has their own unique journey to discover theirs.

    Episode 25 - Interview with Keith Kristich

    Episode 25 - Interview with Keith Kristich

    Keith Kristich lives in Buffalo, NY with his partner and wife, Colleen. He’s a self-described lover of nature, good conversation, and am often found with a book, banjo, or guitar in hand. In his own words, he says “My ultimate aim is to help people slow down and reconnect with their deepest and truest self.”

    Two things stand out about this interview. First, Keith discovered meditation “by accident.” Of course, nothing happens by accident, but he started his journey just by being naturally drawn into silence after listening to music. Once he realized what he was doing, he started to explore Buddhist teachings, and only later did he realize this was a part of the Christian tradition and then found his way into a more formal practice like Centering Prayer.

    Second, he’s a Millenial who is taking up the mantle of contemplative practice, and is sharing it with others through his website, retreats, in-person and online meditation groups, Enneagram coaching, and other creative pursuits.

    I think you’ll find some good stuff in this episode slowing down and connecting.
