  1. Is it OK to share exciting news? You guys feel like my family already! 🙂I launched a podcast on "Everyday Buddhism" (my coaching vehicle) exactly three weeks ago and I noticed today that it made it to the Top 10 in iTunes in the Buddhist category. I had to share. Keep going everyone! Anything is possible!

  2. What's happening NOW?

    A call for mindfulness enthusiasts

    Mindfulness is a passion of mine, too ... and at the core of my coaching and personal life.

    Achology & The Unscaling of Pyschology

    I love this whole "unscaling" thing! This is exactly why I launched a podcast sharing Buddhist methods. It enabled me to be one-on-one with many people, without any scaling. I love Achology already!

    What daily rituals do you have?

    I usually listen to one of my favorite Buddhist or spiritual podcasts/audios, then I meditate for 20-30 minutes … all before getting out of bed. As soon as I get out of bed, I hold my wrist mala, do a gassho (hands together at heart and bow), and say "harmony." This is to set my intention to create harmony rather than disharmony in all my interactions throughout the day. Before I go to bed, I also gassho and say "gratitude" … remembering all I have to be grateful for in the day.

    I just tried to tell you more about the UM training and my post was mark hidden. Am I doing something wrong? They have a great free training course in their system they call Core Training. It has 10 video lessons, quizzes, a discussion forum, and guided meditations audios. Here is the link: https://unifiedmindfulness.com/ BTW, I am not associated with them in a promotional way. I just took their teacher training and find their system very effective, personally and as a coach.

    Mindfulness v meditation.

    I love this discussion! Thank you for bringing it up, Gary! Shinzen Young teaches a system called Unified Mindfulness (UM), where he is essentially saying (not a quote ... my rough interpretation) that you can bring meditation into everything you do, in every moment. It is a training that builds 3 muscles: Concentration, Clarity, and Equanimity. These 3 are the things that develop with a meditation or mindfulness practice. I have done many different types of meditation over the years, but I find the UM system is great for building those 3 muscles through a purposeful focus on what's happening now through feeling, hearing, seeing. This tends to short-circuit or typical "animal brain" response and help us tune in on a moment-by-moment awareness. The other cool thing is that it teaches you can build these muscles even with 5-10 minute sessions and "quick hits" of 1 or 2 minutes throughout the day.
