    Kurtis Vanderpool: Deconstruction is Not Destruction

    Kurtis Vanderpool: Deconstruction is Not Destruction

    This one is different. It is long, it is challenging, and, I think, it may reach some people who haven’t always felt a resonance with some of what I’ve offered.

    Kurtis Vanderpool is a Life Coach who specializes in working with people who are struggling with their faith, and in helping them deconstruct their experience to retain the things that were good.

    In this conversation, we talk about how people are fleeing organized faith, what this means, what we might lose as a result, and the difficulty institutions and their leaders are facing. Kurtis approaches all of this from the “outer edge” of the narrative and therefore offers a different perspective than what you may hear from me week-to-week.

    Opening Up

    Opening Up

    If you really pay attention to your experience you’ll notice that you tense up or constrict when something that you don’t like happens – a lot of our suffering comes from this. In this final part of the series on awareness, we look at moving beyond simple acceptance and into saying “yes” to the things life brings us, especially when they are beyond our control.

    What Does It Mean to Let Go?

    What Does It Mean to Let Go?

    In this episode of the podcast, we explore what it means to let go, how to actually do it, and the fact that it is a process rather a one-time thing. This can be especially difficult when it comes to other people in our lives.

    Awareness and the Need for Approval

    Awareness and the Need for Approval

    The need for approval is a tough one. We are wired to care about what other members of our species think, especially when it comes to our family and close friends. In this episode, we talk about this need for approval, how getting approval often creates a false sense of security that can be dangerous for us, and how awareness can help us reconcile ourselves to all of this.

    Defining Awareness

    Defining Awareness

    The practice of simple awareness is powerful, but it's also simple enough to become complicated as our mind tries to get a grasp on it. In this episode, we talk about what awareness is, what it can do for us, and how to cultivate it.

    Gaming Skills, Life Skills with Yash Anand

    Gaming Skills, Life Skills with Yash Anand

    This is a cool one.

    My friend Yash lives in New Bombay, India, and has written a book on how gamers can take the skills they’ve developed from their hobby and apply them to life. It’s a good idea and I think it’s going to be a good book.

    Join us for the conversation - we were off on a few population statistics, the sound is not perfect, and we stepped on each other a few times due to the lag time on Skype, but it was a good conversation and Yash has some really cool ideas about how video games can help us with concentration, resilience, and problem-solving. 

    Find Yash on IG @thequotedquill, online at www.thequotedquill.com, or email him at yashanand@thequotedquill.com.
