Steady, Calm and Brave with Kimberly Brown

Join me in conversation with Kimberly Brown as we discuss her new book, a handbook of healing tools to help us through the fraught times of 2020—and beyond. In a delightfully honest and personal conversation, she shares her personal experience with trauma and how metta, body-based, and self-compassion Buddhist and pyschotherapeutic practices helped heal her and formed the intention for her to become a teacher of these practices.

The Social Dilemma and Otherness: Seeing Beyond False Certainties and Objectification

In this episode I take a Buddhist view on the spell we've fallen under—and it is the spell of a self-involved culture, swallowed by social media and focused on the hatred of "the other." We are largely living in a world of the extremes of ignorance and false certainty. Yet, nothing or no one is a fixed, discrete thing. Everything is empty of inherent existence. When you fix a difficult person, a political side, or sociopolitical view, you are creating something that doesn't actually exist.

Chaos and Order: Personal Reflections, Poetry, and Chaos Theory

Join me for an episode that is part autobiographical, part solidarity with Pride and Black Lives matter, part poetry, part science, and part Buddhism. Sounds a bit chaotic, doesn't it? Yet I hope you find some relevant order. Sharing a recent experience with my own revisiting of internal trauma, I tried to find order in the chaos. Yet, in the suffering and chaos there may be a new heartbeat; the birth of a new order, if we lean in and keep going with strong back and soft front.

Awakening to the Ordinary with Dr. Christiane Michelberger

Join me for a special guest episode with Dr. Christiane Michelberger, who currently mentors seekers in their quest to awaken.

How Not to Feel Like a Victim: Using Compassion for the Human Condition

As we make our way through the global Covid-19 pandemic we see humbling examples of courage and compassion. And we also see examples of people responding in fear and anger. The pandemic is teaching us about interdependence, change, and impermanence in a profound way. Our choice is to respond like victims or like the brave front-line workers, with a noble response to suffering.
