I’m a meditation teacher and writer, co-author of Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics, and author of The Head Trip, a guidebook to waking, sleeping and dreaming.
Aristotle said "You are what you repeatedly do." There is no neutral setting in life - existence is an activity, one that is changing you and deepening both healthy and unhealthy habits. This short talk and guided practice reflects my latest thinking about what practice is, what it means, and how we find the right practice for us.
“Teaching is carrying on your education in public.” I had no idea when I agreed that co-writing Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics would expose a deeper layer of my own peculiar brand of mental struggle: Attention Deficit Disorder (with a generous helping of mood swings).
Lively talk with Joe Rogan and Dan Harris about self-regulation, martial arts, meditation, managing energy, the paradox of practice, equanimity and qualities of meditation and much more besides.
