Thick Guitar ,

I appreciate this journey sharing podcast.

There’s a subtle awareness that we all know, and it’s not really something you can put your finger on, show an image to someone or use words to convey but it’s always here nonetheless. If you are interested in being in touch with that awareness this is a good podcast to listen to. ZDogg and his guests try to explain ways to help you expand your awareness. It’s like when you start realizing you are about to react to something but there’s a space in time before you react. You start noticing that reacting isn’t always the best option, and that responding is different than reacting. It’s not just something medical personnel benefit from, awareness is probably the most important thing we can give other. It’s beyond language but words can point to it. Listen with an open mind and heart.

Time with ZDofg is Time well spent

It’s so great to have his wisdom and enthusiastic analysis of this experience at our neurons

Mrs.CLBWright ,

I can’t say enough good things about this podcast.

I just recently discovered this channel whilst following my nose in search of more Donald Hoffman content, and fell in LOVE. Highly recommend. 🙌🏼
