    Mindful Empath Ep 2: The MEU

    Mindful Empath Ep 2: The MEU

    We take a step back in episode 2 of the new podcast to share what's been going on with Michael. After being laid off after close to 20 years in the tech world he encountered some mental health and physical health challenges in 2023. This prompted a life and vocation change to create Bearly Zen. A mindfulness coaching and consulting business. It operates within the Mindful Empath umbrella, and allows for both private and corporate mindfulness training. If you would like to learn more, please contact Michael at michael@bearlyzen.com

    Also....check out Substack! Here, Michael will be producing a weekly newsletter called The Mindful Empath's Almanac. I bet you'll find it eye opening and inspiring.

    In this quick 20 minute episode Michael goes into some detail on the above projects and how YOU might be able to help.

    Thanks for listening!

    Mindful Empath Ep 1: Betting on Love!

    Mindful Empath Ep 1: Betting on Love!

    And we're back!!!

    The Empathy & podcast, turned Mindful Empath, is now producing more content! I am excited to share my involvement with a local (Austin, TX) organization called Betting on Love!

    Betting On Love! is a group of people who are betting that universal love and compassion can change the world!

    In advance of their first event, the Conscious Awakening Conference, I spoke with Sunshine Grace, the founder of the group and the conference. The conference will be a unique experience, using the stories of 11 unique voices as the guiding narrative. The conference will be a loving, compassionate space to discuss the intersection of mental health, psychedelics, and spirituality. In this conversation Sunshine describes her own relationship with these three things all done in a beautiful conversation we had on my couch!

    Please check out the website above and get tickets for the conference, they'll sell out fast!

    *A portion of every ticket sold will go to Mobile Loaves & Fishes, the non-profit that provides permanent housing for the chronically homeless and those at risk of homelessness

    Website: https://bettingon.love

    The Mindful Empath Pt 5: Growth

    The Mindful Empath Pt 5: Growth

    For a long long time the conventional wisdom in the scientific community was that, at some point in maturity, human adults were unable to generate new neurons and/or neural pathways. This is not the case!

    Part 5 of the Mindful Empath series. We will continue on our journey of discovery on the intersection between mindfulness and the empathic imperative. This week we will be digging into the Growth Mindset and how it can help redefine how we learn from our emotions and experiences.
