    Episode 4 — Lightening the Load

    This episode features an excerpt from the newly available audiobook version of Carol S. Hyman's book Meeting Your Mind. The section featured here deals with the baggage all human beings carry. Thought patterns and emotions so deeply ingrained we don't recognize them as distinct from ourselves. But if we take the time to unpack—to get to know our baggage—we can learn to recognize our burden for what it is, and maybe even lighten the load.

    Episode 3 — Deep Dive Detox

    Episode 3 — Deep Dive Detox

    What do we mean when we say, "the mood of the whole room shifted"? In this episode Carol S. Hyman discusses how we human beings can dig into a deeper level of experience — Jung called it the Collective Unconscious — and work with our own minds to begin to filter out negative patterns of behavior and energy that trouble our species. To help with this, she offers some basic mindfulness practice instruction, which is the key to both gaining insight into our own tendencies and connecting with the wakeful presence that will allow us to detoxify them.
