In this week’s episode, Billy talks to Commander Jon Macaskill, a retired navy seal commander turned leadership and mindfulness coach. Throughout his 24-year navy career, he held a variety of highly dynamic leadership positions, from the battlefield to the operations center and the boardroom. He has a very unconventional teaching style, yet highly effective. He’s passionate about helping people and organizations become the best version of themselves through mindfulness coaching, keynote speaking, and grit and resilience training. Commander Macaskill also hosts the Men Talking Mindfulness podcast.
Billy and Jon discuss:
--How does meditation complement his faith, and how does his faith complement his meditation practice?
--What was his day-to-day life like as a marine?
--What role do sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems play in situational awareness?
--The struggle of losing identity and not recognizing grief
--Jon’s transition from the Navy back to civilian life
--What is an emotional inventory and how does it make us more aware of our emotions?
--Does Jon’s experience as a Navy SEAL help men be more vulnerable about their mental health?
