In this episode I have a conversation with Jackie Dobrinska is a teacher, coach, and spiritual director who has married two decades of mystical practices with 15 years of expertise in physical health, including diet, herbalism, and Ayurveda. She works with people to live from their truest essence. In addition to coaching individuals and leading group workshops, she is currently the Director of Education, Community & Inclusion for Ram Dass' Love, Serve, Remember Foundation. We have a conversation about body image. Are you satisfied with what you see when you look in the mirror? Regardless of what you may think, both men and women, of all ages, are affected by negative body image. How an individual evaluates one's self has a great deal to do with the quality of one's interpersonal relationships. How we actually embody our body is a better barameter to understand our relationship with our body's and how we relate to others. “The first step is to be present with your own body” - Jackie Dobrinska Contact: Jackie Dobrinska Website: ASimpleVibrantLife.com Related Podcasts: Body Awareness Can Help Us Relate Practicing Self-Care in Relationships How Depression Effects Relationships HeartShare: Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Relationships Let's Talk About It!

Things have already 'come together', 'unfolded','fallen into place', but they will appear to take time in your experience. It's all here, always now, the storm and the rainbow,but the purpose of your experience is to live moment to seeming moment, in and AS this Love. That's what you're missing. As often as you notice you forget to consult with Me, to listen for Me before acting, you forget to be this Love. If you could just Love more, you would see more of what's already Here. You would stop trying to paint your own doors on walls, and finally, look and see My doors standing wide open for you. Pass through.

Feel the breeze on your face or your neck? See how it's going by? You're not all hung up with it. You don't have to see where each breeze goes. You don't have to look quickly to see if it hit those trees over there. It's breezes, and they're just going by.

In this episode, Brynn Anderson and I listen to a rare and powerful lecture from the spiritual teacher.. Ram Dass.. In this lecture called, 'The Pull to God', Ram Dass talks about the motivations that bring a spiritual essence into form again and again, the various games we play throughout our existence, and why we take on the roles we do in life.. He also discusses our relationship with the divine, and gives us a behind the scenes look at the nature of reality itself... This amazing lecture was recorded in Gainesville, FL, 11/27/75.. Drop In!www.beherenownetwork.comRam Dass Bio:Ram Dass also known as Baba Ram Dass, was an American spiritual teacher, guru of modern yoga, psychologist, and author. His best-selling 1971 book, Be Here Now, which has been described by multiple reviewers as "seminal", has sold two million copies and helped popularize Eastern spirituality and yoga with the baby boomer generation in the West. He authored or co-authored twelve more books on spirituality over the next four decades, including Grist for the Mill (1977), How Can I Help? (1985), and Polishing the Mirror (2013).Dass was personally and professionally associated with Timothy Leary at Harvard University in the early 1960s.In 1967, Alpert traveled to India and became a disciple of Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba who gave him the name Ram Dass, meaning "Servant of Ram". In the coming years, he founded the charitable organizations Seva Foundation and Hanuman Foundation. He traveled extensively giving talks and retreats and holding fundraisers for charitable causes in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. In 1997, he had a stroke which left him with paralysis and expressive aphasia. He eventually grew to interpret this event as an act of grace, learning to speak again and continuing to teach and author books. After becoming seriously ill during a trip to India in 2004, he gave up traveling and moved to Maui, Hawaii, where he hosted annual retreats with other spiritual teachers until his death.

"“When you push against somebody, even the subtlest model in your head they should be different than they are, awakens in them at a very unconscious level, pushing back; a resistance, a subtle paranoia.” - Ram Dass. We suffer when we place our expectations of happiness in the hands of others. Instead, we should focus on our responses to external conditions and determine whether or not we choose to participate. Other people become paranoid when we infer that they need to change in order for our needs to be met, further eroding the connection.

I'm back! Welcome to a new season of the Little Cosmologies podcast! Today, I'm talking about giving yourself permission to create something different. Release your expectations of what you think you should create (because you've always done that or said you would do that) and invite new possibilities into your creative world. When I opened myself to the new, an idea for a children's chapter book series rapidly unfolded and within a few evenings I had a strong draft of the first book! And then I thought about this podcast — it can be anything. So why not try something new with it? There's a lot of beauty in finding the unexpected like this, and it's only possible when we're not clinging to stuff from the past, like who we think we should be or what we should create. It doesn't matter what you've done before. Are you open to what you can do now? I invite you to bask in the infinite possibilities and total openness of the present moment. It's like standing under the sun — you're so warm you feel like you're glowing. And as Ram Dass says, nothing kills the glow faster than clinging. I also talk about how I'm using AI as my writing partner, give you a brief synopsis of the TV series I'm creating, plus let you know what you can expect in the season ahead. Subscribe to the show and follow me on instagram @littlecosmologies. You can write to me there. I love receiving your messages. In fact, I've met many great people this way, so don't be shy. Be well. x Ben
The Contemplative Science Podcast
Trauma needs a rethink. Here to tell us why is Liam Farquhar, a London-based legal psychedelics guide and somatic experiencing expert. He shares insights on how the current psychedelic protocols only address trauma at a narrative level, and fail to treat the root of the issue. As such, his practice takes on a whole-body approach - creating a path to healing that uses discussion, breathwork and movement to ingrain a deep understanding of psychedelic processes in his clients. Covering MDMA, Ram Dass, accessing ‘self', men's therapy and more - today's episode is a guide to the possibilities of psychedelic-based treatment.
Implementing value-based care can help providers improve patient health and reduce care costs, but it also presents the opportunity to explore new and emerging areas of research in breakthrough treatments that can revolutionize healthcare as we know it today. Embracing such a paradigm shift is for the mindful, who acknowledge that certain aspects of medicine are not working as intended. If we are to truly attain better patient outcomes at a lower cost, we must consider emerging areas of research that can create new knowledge in the practice of medicine. On this week's podcast, you will learn about some of the research being done to further scientific rigor and expertise in the study of psychedelic therapy. In clinical research settings around the world, renewed investigations are taking place on the use of psychedelic substances for treating illnesses such as addiction, depression, anxiety and posttraumatic stress disorder. Psychedelics fell from medical grace nearly half a century ago, their reputation mired by associations with counterculture drug excesses and Cold War era enhanced interrogation, but now a new wave of research has returned to psychedelics as potential candidates to treat mental health disorders. We are joined this week by Charles B. Nemeroff, M.D., Ph.D the Co-Director of The Center for Psychedelic Research and Therapy at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. Dr. Nemeroff is one of the nation's most influential psychiatrists and has published more than 1100 research studies, and his research is currently supported by grants by groups such as the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). His research is focused on the pathophysiology of mood and anxiety disorders with a focus on the role of child abuse and neglect as a major risk factor. He has also conducted research on the role of mood disorders as a risk factor for major medical disorders including heart disease, diabetes and cancer. At the Center for Psychedelic Research and Therapy, he aims to advance the application of psychedelics for the treatment of mental health disorders through impactful clinical research. Additionally, the center looks to improve the health of those suffering from severe depression, anxiety and PTSD through psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy and research focused heavily on military veterans and adults affected by early childhood trauma.

Neem Karoli Baba or Neeb Karori Baba (c. 1900 -1973), known to his followers as Maharaj-ji, was a Hindu guru and a devotee of the Hindu deity Hanuman. Baba was a lifelong adept of bhakti yoga, and encouraged service to others (seva) as the highest form of unconditional devotion to God. In the book Miracle of Love, compiled by Ram Dass, a devotee named Anjani shares the following account: "There can be no biography of him. Facts are few, stories many. He seems to have been known by different names in many parts of India, appearing and disappearing through the years. His non-Indian devotees of recent years knew him as Neem Karoli Baba, but mostly as “Maharajji”. Just as he said, he was "nobody". He gave no discourses; the briefest, simplest stories were his teachings. Usually, he sat or lay on a wooden bench wrapped in a plaid blanket while a few devotees sat around him. Visitors came and went; they were given food, a few words, a nod, a pat on the head or back, and they were sent away. Sometimes he sat in silence, absorbed in another world to which we could not follow, but bliss and peace poured down on us. Who he was was no more than the experience of him, the nectar of his presence, the totality of his absence, enveloping us now like his plaid blanket."

Today on the Rarified Heir Podcast, we present another encore episode, this time with Kelly Carlin, daughter of iconic stand-up comedian George Carlin. We spoke with Kelly, who we met at the National Comedy Center in 2018 and who was essentially the impetus for the podcast about a variety of subjects. Some of the great things we chat about with Kelly are her memoir, A Carlin Home Companion : Growing Up with George, her career as a monologuist and therapist, her iconic dad's humor, his early comedy partner Jack Burns and much more. This is both a funny and deep conversation with Kelly as we delve into Ram Dass, Jungian therapy and her Women on the Verge program as well as what made her dad laugh, how his humor influenced her own humor and his ‘time on the road' being at home without dad. It's a spiritual and deep episode with a few well timed laughs as well. We hope you like listening to this one as we did making it. This is the Rarified Heir Podcast and this is one great episode if we do say so ourselves.
Conversaciones del Alma con Durga Stef
Lo más poderoso que experimento Ram Dass fue el amor incondicional de su gurú. No nos damos cuenta pero el modelo de nuestra cultura que nos enseña a tener relaciones está basado en las condiciones y en ver si cumplen o no mis expectativas. Vivimos creyendo que si las personas de mi alrededor no me dan amor y reconocimiento, no tengo otro lugar de donde sacarlo, por lo que me vuelvo como un fantasma hambriento y muy cuidadoso en mis relaciones porque nos da temor considerar que el otro sea la fuente del amor que yo siento. En este episodio te entrego una herramienta sencilla y my poderosa para cambiar este paradigma, de un amor escaso a uno incondicional y abundante Espero lo disfruten. Namaste, Durga Stef

'If riches increase, set not your heart on them."*When opportunities come, when all the doors are thrown open, because of how you've opened yourself to Grace,set not your heart on them. Keep your heart Here. Remembering that God is your provider, not what He has turned into, what he seems to become. The riches don't provide, the opportunities don't provide,they appear because of Him. Because of This...that you're hearing in abundance,that you're feeling in abundance.It's always Here, and when you live out from this,you'll always Have.

It shall burn out all dross of the mortal mind, smallness of nature, meanness of spirit, vindictiveness, jealousy. It shall burn out all carelessness of your habits, in the outer realms of your being. My Law and My Order can then function perfectly in your life. Then and then only will you be a worthy vessel for the inflow of My Spirit. Then and then only can My Spirit flow through you to other of My children. Likewise shall all disease be burned from the physical body, that nothing shall interfere with My Plan for your life. As the sigh of your spirit disturbs the flame and makes the candle drip, so the faintest wavering of your feet from the path of attainment causes a less steady burning of My Flame in your heart, and My Work goes on in imperfection. Oh, My Beloved, how necessary that you live with the eye single, to the high purpose of your calling. But you have many helpers. No soul who enters the path is left to walk alone. So go on, day by day, with the light and assurance of My Love in your face. Mighty Ones whom you see not, are by your side.

Chanting keeps my eyes on God. My 'I' in, and AS God. I chant Ram, Ram, Ram all throughout the day as often as I can remember (60%-75% of my waking hours-- aloud when I'm alone, silently when I'm with others). When I'm hearing the Sound (sounds like a high pitch 'eeeeee', here), I stop chanting and just Hear. Sometimes I continue to chant Ram WHILE hearing the Sound at the same time. Whether I'm chanting or hearing, I'm KNOWING by feeling that I'm not here as this body, as this scene, as this moment, I'm here as Love. I'm here as the Sound. I'm here as Light. The Sound, the Name breaks my belief in the world, in my problems, in myself. This is a 24/7 365 practice. It must go on constantly. It is your rope. Your lifeline. Keep climbing and don't let go! Check out this excerpt on mantras from Polishing the Mirror by Ram Dass- "Keep repeating your mantra consciously until it has become a strong habit. Go for a walk and say the mantra all the time you are walking. Notice everything but keep the mantra going. Keep realizing that being with God is your focus… and therefore everything you see is part of God.Maharajji said, “The best form in which to worship God is all forms.” Everyone you meet is Ram who has come to teach you something. Mantra is remembering that place in the heart – Ram, Ram, Ram. Say it, mouth it, think it, feel it in your heart. You are continually meeting and merging into perfection.The Divine is present in the soul of all living beings and in the Universe."Check out Chants of a Lifetime (my favorite book on chanting and devotion) by Krishna Das!

Once we identify ourselves with the body by thinking this thought, maya follows. It also follows that if we cease to identify with the body, maya will not affect us anymore."- Annamalai Swami "You have caught My Voice, and the meaning of the words I speak is becoming plain in your heart.
