    A life of passion, love, and rhythm with Zorina Wolf (and the spirit of Baba Olatungi)

    A life of passion, love, and rhythm with Zorina Wolf (and the spirit of Baba Olatungi)

    Welcome back to 10,000 Heroes, your go-to podcast for inspiration and inquiry into what a life of purpose and fun is all about.   
    My name is Ankur Shah Delight and our project here is to facilitate, to midwife, the birth of an entire generation of people totally aligned with their purpose, their contribution.
     
    Because that’s what I think we’re going to need to survive. 
     
    My guest today is Zorina Wolf.
     
    Humble and hilarious, Zorina moves me over and over with her story of how she got deep – and I mean deep – into drumming and rhythm. And how that rhythm work connects to her mission of bringing people together.
     
    The end of this episode features a rhythm meditation with Zorina that is quite profound. Don’t do it while driving. There is a link to a youtube video in the show notes if you prefer to see the video for that part of it (I would).
     
    As always, we love hearing from you. Drop us a line, leave us a voicemail, or hit us up on twitter!
    An special present  from our guest:

    What does Putin know about Reality? with Meditation teacher Leigh Brasington

    What does Putin know about Reality? with Meditation teacher Leigh Brasington

    Welcome everyone to interview #00030 of The 10,000 Heroes Show.
     
    I’m Ankur Shah Delight and today’s guest is Leigh Brasington. Leigh is a well-known meditation teacher and expert on the “Jhanas” who I’ve known about for a while. I was reading one of his books earlier this year, and I had a number of “aha moments” while reading it, and a lot of questions. So I reached out to him and he was so good about answering my questions, I thought, this guy would be great for the show. And he was.
     
    One thing that is coming up for me a lot these days is the incredible power we each have, as human beings, when we are aligned and using our energy and intention for things we really care about. There is really so much we can do when we’re working with – and not against our passion. That comes out in this interview for sure, and maybe is a common thread in my personal definition of what a hero is – somebody who has identified their passion and purpose, and has oriented their life around it.

    Herbalist Richard Mandelbaum on the nuances of a holistic mindset and the power of near-death experiences.

    Herbalist Richard Mandelbaum on the nuances of a holistic mindset and the power of near-death experiences.

    Richard Mandelbaum is an herbalist and teacher who runs a school of herbal medicine called the ArborVitae School of Traditional Herbal Medicine.  
    Richard does a wonderful job of both explaining and modeling a holistic perspective on health and — perhaps not surprisingly — it has a lot to do with the health of our communities and our relationships with nature. 
     
    Enjoy!
     
    And… to all our dedicated listeners, if you haven’t filled out the audience survey yet, you still have time! Check out the survey link below.
     
    Remember, to sweeten the deal, I’m throwing in a hand-painted watercolor postcard to every survey respondent! How cool is that!

    Special Announcement: What 10,00 Heroes is all about and your chance to win an astounding watercolor postcard prize

    Special Announcement: What 10,00 Heroes is all about and your chance to win an astounding watercolor postcard prize

    Faithful listeners! [TLDR: Here's the link: https://bit.ly/10kh_survey]
    It's a been a year since we started this podcast -- 10,000 Heroes -- and we're now 28 episodes deep, which leaves 9,972 episodes to go.
     
    I want those next 9,972 episodes to be awesome. For me that means two things:
    - They fulfill my mission
    - They meet your needs
     
    Correspondingly, there are two "streams of work" here. One of which includes a prize for you.
     
    First of all, I'm in process of discernment about what exactly I'm trying to achieve with 10,000 Heroes. And that's going really well.
     
    Second of all, I want to understand you a little better, which is why I've created this fancy little listener survey I'm asking you to take.
     
    Once I get both of those halves crystal clear -- my intentions and your needs -- I'll be able to find that perfect striped area in the Venn diagram, and everybody will be stoked.
     
    So, pretty please click on this survey link:
    https://bit.ly/10kh_survey
     
    As an extremely humble token of my appreciation, I will send you a watercolor postcard somehow related to this podcast (I haven't made it yet), if you fill out the survey, whether you like the podcast or not. I promise.
     
    This has been a fantastic journey for Nate and myself, from my initial interview with Uncle Jamal over a year ago (which is still probably my favorite), to our 33rd interview with Casey Jourdan, which I recorded last week.
     
    Thank you for your listening in the past, your attention at present, and your participation in our future.
     
    And as Thomas Pynchon sometimes reminds me: Keep cool but care!
     
    And here's that survey link once again:

Inspiring & Thought Provoking

I love the diverse backgrounds of the guests and it amazes me how I’m able to relate to their personal experiences in a way that helps me deeply reflect on my own. The host asks brilliant questions and I also love the energy that he brings to every conversation.

Fresh perspectives

The incredible people, achievements and stories conveyed in the episodes i’ve listened to have challenged me with new and fresh perspectives that reflect the complexity and nuance of the human growth experience. It’s a potent reminder that radical self discovery isn’t easy for anyone yet it is what this life is about.
