Story 26 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie . Trauma can exact a pernicious hold on our mind. Victims often seek help in the form of group therapy or individual counseling. Members of Alcoholics Anonymous admit to feeling helpless in the face of their inability to overcome their addictions. They speak of themselves as survivors. They are to be commended for facing their trauma, seeing it for what it is. narrated by Ian McCrorie 2022 4 minutes 06 seconds Listen to Streaming Audio Your browser does not support the audio element.

The Buddha taught about the five hindrances as what gets in the way of our liberation. Although we may have memorized the list, recognizing the subtle ways they show up in our lives is another matter. Mary talks about recognizing them and seeing how they work to keep us trapped in delusion.Recorded June 18, 2022 in the virtual world

Are you on a spiritual journey right now? Chances are, if you are in your 30s or 40s, you have been on a spiritual journey of some sort, and maybe you still are going through the motions of it. As for me, my spiritual journey started here in Australia due to the “at-home time” I had during the pandemic so I had the space to dig deep. As for many of us, it caused us to pause and reevaluate our purpose in life. It was my desire to reconnect with my intuition and keep my head above the water if I wanted to make progress on my business. This brings me to this week's guest, Johnson Chong, the best-selling and award-winning author of Sage Sapien: From Karma to Dharma. Johnson is passionate about creating a bridge between ancient wisdom, energy medicine, and direct modern application. His unique experiences offer a profoundly healing self-discovery experience, followed by very practical and actionable steps to create lasting change. With his background as a teacher who trains yoga teachers and pilates teachers, Johnson has an expansive knowledge of the physical body and how the psyche can create stagnation on all levels – physical, mental, emotional, and energetic. Today, Johnson shares his shamanic wisdom to help us keep it all together in all the roles that we are playing in life – in the most authentic way possible. Whether you're a child of parents who are also on their own spiritual journey or maybe you have conflicting beliefs, this is definitely a great episode for you to listen to. Gain an appreciation for both your feminine and masculine sides and learn to reconnect with them. Share this with someone else who is also curious about the idea of doing inner work and its benefits on your life. As a mom, you do not want to let the spark of a business idea get caught in the undercurrent of motherhood. This month, I will be offering 3 VIP Moms In Business Coaching spots for moms who wish to build a resilient business capable of bouncing back after any family interruption. It is during our day together that we will map out your precise implementation plan with the realities of being a caregiver in mind. This opportunity is unlike any other because it syncs up what you deeply desire out of motherhood with the needs of a business at every stage; it's what I've picked up and refined over the course of an 11-year plus entrepreneurial career that has grown with my family of three young boys.

Sign-up today on https://go.oncehub.com/ClientSessionMelissaLlarena for a complimentary 15-minute connection Zoom call to see if it's the right fit based on your income goals in the next 9 weeks. Johnson Chong's Biography Johnson Chong is the best-selling and award-winning author of Sage Sapien: From Karma to Dharma. He is also a TedX Speaker, shaman, and the founder of Sage Sapien Soul Academy where he trains aspiring meditation and breathwork teachers. Through the synthesis of the most applicable teachings of yoga, meditation, breathwork, coaching, and shamanic healing, Johnson's training programs are designed to help people quiet the mind, awaken the heart, and free themselves of the roadblocks that keep them from living more authentically and joyfully. Johnson has spoken and led workshops at companies like Unilever, Facebook, Nike, Macquarie, Insight Timer, UBS, UOB, and more. Johnson is a native New Yorker, has lived on three continents, and is currently based in Sydney, Australia. Highlights Mental state: Modern people have to make use of technology in healthy ways. To keep his mental state, Johnson uses a pulsed electromagnetic frequency device, which mirrors back high-functioning brainwave states. Spirituality: Your spiritual path is personal and one with huge benefits that can span generations. In my case, having this business led me to seek my spiritual path. Balance: You have both feminine and masculine energies inside of you and both are equally important. Navigating life requires both sides of you and if you are too tilted in one direction, your kids may compensate in the opposite to maintain the balance in your home. Taking risks: You can search for a safe job, choice, or relationship but then you may miss out on the adventure of taking a risk – and the risk could sometimes mean being true to yourself. Imagination: Deciding to be a mom was the biggest risk I took. Learning to reawaken my imagination and stay true to myself was essential in navigating all the ups and downs. Resilience: We have all experienced some level of discomfort, pain, or things that didn't turn out the way we wanted. And so, you have to practice getting good at knowing how to be okay in the storm and weather it. Focus: When you learn to focus your attention on the moment or on the different types of sensations in your body, you're learning extreme focus, which is necessary for all things in life. Purpose: We have to go back and sit with all of the pain, the hurt, as well as the things we never wanted and can't quite fully accept in the past before we can get to our life purpose. In order to enjoy more of life, you have to get deep and dirty in it. Lower and upper worlds: The spiritual journey is not just up there but also down there. From a shamanic perspective, you go into the lower world first before you go up into the upper world. Sacred feminine: When we're talking about meeting certain things within ourselves that are darker or we want to hide away, that's the sacred feminine. We're not wanting to confront that and we're denying a part of ourselves. Yin Yang: Masculine and feminine (not male and female) energies are more of the essence of a plus and a minus charge – masculine, being the plus charge of the battery; and feminine, as the minus charge of the battery. Both are necessary to make the battery work. (+) energy: Masculine energy is a giving, forward-giving energy. It's about direction. It is structured, mathematical, and philosophical. (–) energy: Feminine energy is wild, creative, sexual energy which you can channel into art or an enlightened state. Chaos: Anything that's chaotic and destroys the norm, or the way that we perceive the norm is the feminine force. We associate that as bad, but it's part of nature, just like a hurricane. Business: A masculine force is being a high achiever. But the world's top billionaires have experienced great losses. That's them risking diving into the feminine, which is the great unknown, and then they come back up. Rest: When the minus comes down, you now have the opportunity to rest, restore, read, and do things that are nourishing for yourself. It's winter break. Flow: Part of the spiritual journey is understanding these waves within ourselves, and then expressing that. Balance: Our job as human beings is to find the balance between masculine energy and feminine energy. Parents: A lot of immigrant families have a very masculine driving force. And so the kids have to have a structured life. So they have to learn to be okay with being vulnerable in public and being a bit messy. Toxic family: A toxic relationship is a toxic relationship, sometimes, you have to end it. We can't judge trauma because you never know how that inspires someone else. Pain: If you swallow your pain up and pretend it's not there, it's going to build into something toxic and your children may have to create some distance from you. Service: Every person, whatever their unique story is, has the capacity to make a choice of how to deal with their pain. You can take your pain and turn it into service and inspire you to help others. If you enjoyed this conversation, check out these episodes with similar themes: Michael A.

His mother is Dharma teacher Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel.Dungse la has lived and traveled extensively in Asia, but spent much of his youth in Colorado. If you were to ask Dungse la how long he has been studying the Buddhist path, he would say, “Since I was born.”When Dungse la was still an infant, Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche instructed Kongtrul Rinpoche to train Dungse la to uphold and continue Kongtrul Rinpoche's lineage, particularly that of Mangala Shri Bhuti.With the foundation of his life-long guidance and education from Kongtrul Rinpoche, Dungse la also teaches widely and engages in an annual 100-day retreat at Longchen Jigme Samten Ling.

Thoughts are like ghosts that haunt the mind, those thoughts become speech that become actions. Most of the terrible things that have happened in the world have had to do with views and ideologies spreading like a virus through a culture, driving a culture mad. Maitreyabandhu reminds us that Buddhism says again and again, what you think and what you do matters. Everything you do matters.

This week we explore the we explore the value of emotional intelligence and the opportunity to assisting in generational healing. You will be invited to open up some of those toward away events in your life with the opportunity to assist in your own liberation through self examination. "Yogic action has three components: discipline, self-study and orientation toward awareness itself (sutra 2.1). When the components of Yoga are practiced, proliferating emotional phenomena dwindle, and the light of understanding can shine forth, illuminating the way to discriminative awareness (sutra 2.28). Discriminative insight deconstructs all of the phenomenal world's objects and conditions, setting them apart from pure awareness (sutra 3.53). Consciousness, now oriented to this distinction, can gravitate toward kaivalya (liberation)—the fully integrated experience that awareness is independent of nature (sutra 4.26). This is the goal of Yoga." Richard Panico May all beings everywhere remember the true causes of happiness.

Story 25 from 'A Lifetime Doing Nothing' by Ian McCrorie . Mindfulness is very popular these days. Not long ago it made the cover of Time magazine. Library of Congress lists 4,063 titles that contain the word “mindful,” including Mindful Golf and Mindfulness and Murder. And therein lies the rub. The word has been commodified and monetized to such an extent as to obliterate its original meaning. narrated by Ian McCrorie 2022 3 minutes 13 seconds Listen to Streaming Audio Your browser does not support the audio element.

Hello everyone! WOW! I had so much fun putting this together for everyone. Bharani is one of my favorite nakshatras - and if you're a dharma-phile like me, you'll see why! Bharani is governed by Yamaraj - or the god of death. This asterism is all about life, death, rebirth, and also morals, ethics, and justice. With the insatiable, taboo, futuristic, and trailblazing Rahu entering Bharani - we are in for some serious breakthroughs! But we are also in for some serious questioning around ethics, law, and order. We can expect to see rebellion, clash, and questioning to those in elite groups. This is a time of reinvention and recreation. But in order to create something new, often something needs to be put to rest. What will shift in your life?

Thanks for Listening to the Skeptic Disciple Podcast We are first of all human and secondly we are learners. Listening is an essential skill in reading scripture and listening to teaching. In this episode we will discover how NOT to listen. The 3 Defects of Listening: 1. Listening in a way that is like an upside down container. This means that physically we may be attending to but mentally we are busy somewhere else. So when someone is teaching, we are not in fact listening at all. 2. Listening in a way that is like a container with holes. This means that even though we are listening, we don't retain the content. In this case we lack mindfulness and memory. In order to benefit from teachings we must retain them with mindfulness. When our interest is half hearted, we only remember half the points, and we retain them only for a short time. We should reflect and think about whatever we have heard, over and over again. In this way, the knowledge will stay in our mind for a long time. 3. Listening like a vessel containing poison. When we listen to the teachings, we must avoid deluded motives. All activities, particularly Dharma practices such as listening and reading scriptural texts, must be done with a wholesome motivation. We should aim to control the undisciplined mind. I urge you not to treat Dharma knowledge like any other kind of science just to earn a living. It's our hope that you can apply these principles even when we listen to each other. --------------------------------------------------------------- Book Source: Stages of Meditation by The Dalai Lama Kamalaśīla.; Bstan-ʼdzin-rgya-mtsho, Dalai Lama XIV.

Welcome to episode 32 of The Way Out Is In: The Zen Art of Living, a podcast series mirroring Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's deep teachings of Buddhist philosophy: a simple yet profound methodology for dealing with our suffering, and for creating more happiness and joy in our lives. This bonus episode showcases an interview between Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and journalist Jo Confino from before Christmas 2011, during the winter retreat in Plum Village. It begins with a short introduction by Jo and Zen Buddhist monk Brother Phap Huu. This is a conversation about our relationship with Mother Earth, the need to move beyond the idea of ‘environment', and falling back in love with our life-giving planet. Thich Nhat Hanh talks about the ‘Buddha nature'; the Earth as a Bodhisattva; meditation as active awakening, and practical ways to bring about a collective awakening; the need for a cosmic religion not based on Dharma or belief; producing our own right view; dogmatism as a cause for separation and war; the most necessary teachings for our times; mindful and compassionate business; transforming suffering; collective awakening; and connecting to the Earth through mindfulness. Thay also further develops on his interest in science, and the benefits of a retreat for mindfulness practitioners and scientists. The interview also includes important advice to help activists maintain their motivation and peace amid chaos, and how to suffer less in order to help more.

So it is possible for us to conceive Buddha [as] not [being] in the form of a person.” “If you look around deeply, you realize that there isn’t anything as beautiful as our planet Earth. And that is why we should not try to abandon this beautiful planet, searching for something far away – whether that is called Pure Land, the Kingdom of God, or anything. And if we gain that insight, we see that the Earth is not only the environment; everything is us, and by taking care of the Earth we take care of ourselves.” “In Buddhism, we speak of meditation as an active awakening. To awake is to be awake to something. To be awake to the fact that the Earth is in danger and living species on Earth are also in danger. And that should be a collective awakening, in order to have enough strength for a change.” “Scientists are motivated by a desire to understand better, and Buddhist practitioners are also motivated by that kind of desire. But, in Buddhism, we keep in mind that understanding could help us suffer less. Any kind of understanding, true understanding, will help us suffer less. And the Buddhist tradition has elaborated ways of practicing in order to help people to suffer less. And in the process, they have found out many things about themselves and the world. They don’t use the scientific method, but they have a lot of insight and a lot of experiences. And I think they can share it with other people, including scientists.” “There are plenty of us who are activists, who are eager to do something. And we should go this way: we should begin with ourselves. We should begin with removing our wrong views, so that we can suffer less. And when we suffer less, we can be more helpful. We can help people to change.” “If you transcend the notion of birth and death, you are able to transcend the notion of being and non-being. And you know that to be or not to be, that’s no longer the question.” “When I drink tea, this is a wonderful moment. You do not need a lot of power or fame or money to be happy. Mindfulness can help you to be happy in the here and now; every moment can be a happy moment. Set an example and help people to do the same. Take a few minutes to experiment to see the truth.” “The Earth cannot be described either by the notion of matter or mind, which are just ideas, two faces of the same reality. That pine tree is not just matter, as it possesses a sense of knowing. A dust particle is not just matter since each of its atoms has intelligence and is a living reality.” “When we recognise the virtues, the talent, the beauty of Mother Earth, something is born in us; some kind of connection, of love is born. “We want to be connected. That is the meaning of love: to be at one. When you love someone, you want to say, ‘I need you, I take refuge in you.' You do anything for the benefit of the Earth and the Earth will do anything for your wellbeing.”
This talk reviews the third attribute of the Virtue aggregate in the Noble Eightfold Path, Right Livelihood. in addition to traditional renderings of this topic, contemporary considerations of “Right Lifestyle” are described, including the importance of physical and financial balance in one's life to support meditative development and integration of the Dharma into daily living […]

Once consumed, feelings of infusion, vitalisation, empowerment, elevation, even travel into other worlds or possession by the divine had been reported. So important was this drink, that there is an entire chapter with 114 hymns that have been dedicated to this drink alone - in the Rigveda, no less. This week, in the fourteenth episode of the series Fabulous Foods, we attempt to solve the world's greatest unsolved culinary mystery, that originated in India. We travel across the cold terrain of Siberia to the arid landscapes of Iran and Peninsular India, and maybe discover the source of the Soma.

Quite often this is said to us by people who think they know more than we do: "Just let go." I say don't do that. Anytime you sink your hooks into anything, just observe that: see the way you grasp. If we are talking about a situation in the emotional mindstream, don't let go. It's not about trying to get rid of anything. The underlying issue is mistaken identity. Just observe the way you cling to your emotions and your feelings.

In this short talk, Mary reflects on the the statement that thoughts are not the enemy, although often we think they are. It's not the thoughts as much as our relationship to them that are what we need to look at. How do we recognize thoughts? How do we tell the difference between thoughts and thinking? How do we relate to all our experiences and sensations? The invitation in this practice is to let go of any adversarial relationship we have to experience.Recorded June 11, 2022 in the virtual world
(Insight Meditation Community of Berkeley) A follow up to a recent talk that focused on death and dying. This talk explores the other four of the Five Daily Reflections (also known as the Five Remembrances): aging, illness, loss and karma.
