    EP 602: From Ignorance and Hate to Empathy and Compassion + Neuroception and Opportunities

    EP 602: From Ignorance and Hate to Empathy and Compassion + Neuroception and Opportunities

    It’s not often that I have to issue a Trigger Warning in my daily videos, but I believe such a warning is appropriate today, as I discuss implicit racial bias in this first segment.

    In the end, this first segment is about transforming the implicit racial bias into empathy and compassion, which I do through a personal story of a walk with my 10-year-old son.

    In today’s second segment, I take this concept further and talk about how the awareness of our feelings, thoughts, and actions provide opportunities for us to heal and grow through our moment-by-moment experiences.

    I hope you enjoy!

    If you’d like to discuss these topics further - or if you would like to learn about specific practices that will help you achieve the results I talk about here - I encourage you to claim your free coaching session.

    EP 600!! : "Life is the Curriculum" + Non-Identification

    EP 600!! : "Life is the Curriculum" + Non-Identification

    Well, well, well… 600 episodes!?!?!? I am so grateful for you. Without you, this day would never have happened!! Thank you!!!

    In today’s first segment, I quote our old friend, Jon Kabat-Zinn, who said that life is the curriculum.

    As I mention in the segment, I think this is abundantly accurate in a couple of ways:

    First, like a school curriculum, it is not the teacher, but more so a vehicle by which we can apply the learning the teacher has provided. The teacher, in my opinion, is the practice itself.

    But the quote is also accurate and appropriate in that life, for all its immensity, is actually quite simple when viewed moment-by-moment.

    And seeing the potential curriculum as simple and small will get you to look for those simple and small opportunities to embody the learning of Mindfulness and Compassion practices.

    In the second segment, I talk about how our childhood - especially if any trauma was included! - shapes our worldview.

    The importance of this understanding is that when we see that we’re programmed for the behavior that may be hindering our happiness, it allows us to engage in perhaps the most powerful and healthy action available to us: Non-Identification.

    I hope you enjoy the episode! Please reach out if you have any questions!!!

    These are both concepts I’ll be covering in the 8 lectures of my upcoming Self Compassion program.

    EP 599: Recipe of Our Moods + How - And Why - to Connect to Our Essence and Intuition

    EP 599: Recipe of Our Moods + How - And Why - to Connect to Our Essence and Intuition

    In today’s first segment, I talk about our moods.

    In any given moment, we are experiencing a mood that is simply a concoction of our physical, mental, and emotional state, garnished by our worldview and programming.

    When we can recognize and hold this concoction in our non-judging awareness, it allows us some compassion and forgiveness and ultimately results in healthy dis-identification.

    But here’s the thing: every person you experience at any given moment is also operating from this concoction of their own.

    This understanding is the basis for compassion for those around you. (Can you see how that compassion for others arises from the compassion for yourself in this context?)

    In the second segment, I talk about the vital importance of intuition.

    Sadly, most of us, through trauma, stress, or both, have lost the connection to our intuition.

    It’s for this reason that so many of us struggle with decisions and with accepting reality.

    In this segment, I explain how it is self-compassion that can allow us to reconnect to our essence and our intuition, rendering all those issues far less difficult.

    I hope you enjoy!

    EP 598: The Beauty of Simplicity + Putting our own Oxygen Mask on First

    EP 598: The Beauty of Simplicity + Putting our own Oxygen Mask on First

    In today’s first segment, I talk about simplicity and the beauty and benefit included.

    To illustrate what I mean, I talk about the simplicity of Rock n Roll. And let’s face it, any time John Prine and Jerry Garcia are mentioned in the same context, it’s worth a listen!

    In the second segment, I talk about the importance of self-compassion and kindness so that we can be available to give these out to the people in our lives.

    I hope you enjoy it!
