We can do more than just survive. We can thrive and live a fulfilling life full of joy. We can attain financial, spiritual, and intellectual freedom.
Speaking the Truth and Speaking with Kindness Is Harder Than It Sounds
In this solo episode I take some time to share some insights from my own practice. These relate to the Buddhist concept of Right Speech including abstaining from false speech, abstaining from slanderous speech, abstaining from harsh speech, and abstaining from idle chatter.
The book that I reference in this episode is a great reference for those interested in Buddhism as a spiritual path or if you just want to explore some of the concepts for personal development. It is called The Noble Eightfold Path by Bhikkhu Bodhi: https://www.amazon.com/Noble-Eightfold-Path-Way-Suffering/dp/192870607X
Thanks for listening. 🙏
Why Am I Here? with Bridget Lavin
Bridget Lavin is a spiritual practitioner, previous yoga studio owner, and retreat leader. We sat down to talk shortly after she returned to Omaha, NE from completing her MSc of Science & Religion at The University of Edinburgh in Scotland. She now lives in Denver, CO.
We talk all things spiritual practices including how to let go (and what that even means) as well as the nuances of clinging to a particular practice as a form of suffering itself.
It was truly an enjoyable conversation that I hope you will enjoy too.

Giving the World More Color 🎨 with Kelsey Kowalski
Kelsey Kowalski is an Omaha, Nebraska multi-disciplinary artist recently nominated for Outstanding Emerging Visual Artist by The Omaha Entertainment & Arts Awards.
Kelsey shares about her journey of how her art has evolved since she started painting age five. That journey took her through recovery and relapse from alcoholism, surviving an abusive relationship, and finding community among other artists and creators in Omaha.
Her artwork is a delight. It is vibrant, colorful, and often a bit (or very) psychedelic. As she says, she's trying to "give the world some more color."
Follow her artwork at Acrylic and Mind Trip on Facebook or her Etsy page under the same name.

How Multiple Past Life Regressions Weave A Bigger Lesson with Jill Schrack ✨
In this episode, I sit back down with Jill Schrack to discuss past life regressions. Specifically we discuss the four past life regressions I've done so far in detail. We talk about the details of the experience and also the lessons arching through the stories. It's an exciting, deep, and sometimes funny episode.
Jill also happens to be my fiancé, so we recorded this episode in our living room with our dog Max in the background. Check out the HappyYouAreHere.Life blog for some pics of how cute he is. 😉

Key Points, Summarized by Melville Ai
08:28 Craig Inzana and Jill Schrack discuss past life experiences and how they can help us understand our current life. They also plan to do more episodes discussing different topics related to peak experiences.
12:16 The participant has described how hypnosis and spiritual tools such as light and sound can lead to powerful visuals and a connection to the spiritual realm.
13:59 Past life regressions are a way for people to gain insights into their current life. Craig Inzana's past life regressions led him to learn about lessons he was currently learning in his current life.
17:35 Craig Inzana explains that he holds multiple belief systems in his mind at one time, which can be a little exhausting at times. He uses past life regressions as a way to connect with his subconscious and gain guidance on what he is working on subconsciously.
22:08 Craig Inzana talks about his experiences with addiction and how it felt familiar and how it was hard to get out of. He talks about how he eventually got sober and how it was a much better choice than suicide.
36:46 Craig Inzana remembers a past life in which he was stabbed to death by three men. In this life, he is able to see both the good and the bad that he did in his previous life. After his death, he is taken to a place where he is mentored on how to use his knowledge to help others.
Sharing from Deep Authenticity - The Return of Happy You Are Here
It's been a long year with a lot of growth. The Happy You Are Here Podcast was gone for that time, but many of you found this podcast for the first time and listened to many episodes while I was away. I'm grateful to be able to share with you.
This episode is a solo episode sharing where the podcast is going this coming season. I've been called to use this as a platform to dive deeper into my authentic communication and bring that authenticity out of my guests too.
Over this coming season I'll be sharing a lot of the lessons and growth (both mental and spiritual) I've traversed over the past year. At the same time I'll be interviewing some of the most lovely, interesting people I know. Some previous guests will make a return and you'll meet plenty of new people as well.
Happy You Are Here 🙏
