#33: Finding Flow with Mindfulness

This episode will explore how mindfulness can help you achieve a state of flow.

Being in a state of flow helps us find more enjoyment in life. In this episode I will cover 3 specific strategies for developing a flow state. Following the talk there will be a guided meditation. ...

#32: Being Mindful While Embracing Change & Loving Life

Through our life's journey everything keeps changing no matter how hard we try and hold on to what we have.  The famous quote by Heraclitus "the only constant is change" is true.  If things are going poorly, just wait.  If things are good, just wait.  The inevitable ups and downs of life are going to occur whether we want them to or not.  Knowing that change is coming doesn't mean that we should coast through life on automatic pilot.  The fact that everything is changing, is an invitation for us to inhabit each moment as though it was our last.  This episode explores how we can capture the moments in our lives that remind us how important it is for us to be present.  This...

#27: Dissolving Stress Through Mindful Reflection

This episode explores how to use mindful reflection as a means to learning how to work with uncomfortable thoughts and emotions. We often don't take the time to reflect on what is painful in our lives because we spend so much energy pushing away pain and seeking pleasure. Avoiding our painful emotions may be necessary for a time, however to resolve these feelings, we need to express them. If you have been through trauma or are having difficulty expressing your feelings, you may need to see a professional counselor to help you with this process. Following the talk there will be a guided reflection and meditation. The skills taught in this podcast are no intended to replace traditional medical care....

Practicing mindful communication can give us the resources to avoid unnecessary conflicts and help us find a greater sense of connection with others. Following the talk there will be guided meditation....
