#35: Mindful Living, Reflection & Meditation

This episode looks at how we can use mindfulness and reflective questions to help us undo the strong pull within us to move away from being vulnerable.  Asking important questions and reflecting on what matters most in our lives can put us in touch with our intrinsic values.  When we are in touch with what really matters, were not consumed with competing with others, but in pursuit of living.   Following the talk there will be a guided meditation.  I started the A Keen Mind Podcast almost 1 year ago and I am proud to announce that this show has been listed as one of the Top 25 Mindfulness Podcasts of 2019 by Feedspot.  This would not be possible without all of you who listen to...

#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...
