Fantastic

Piercing insights. Compassionate, eminently reasonable reflections. Thank you, Eric!

Clear and useful

I really enjoyed the most recent episode, particularly the part reminding us to consider the purpose behind spiritual traditions. The story made the teaching more understandable and obviously universal across faiths. Eric’s obvious respect for the use of a faith or spiritual tradition, regardless of which one, as a path to make people happier and humanity more peaceful makes this approachable for anyone. The episodes are not too long, just long enough to give you something to think about as you go about your day.

Simply Amazing

Ancient wisdom can be undeniably powerful, but all too often it’s also dense, obscure, and seemingly indecipherable. With uncommon clarity and rigorous logic, Eric unpacks these powerful truths and makes them practically relevant for our daily lives. Every week, I walk away with a new insight or technique that helps me to do better in my daily life. I can’t recommend it enough.
