334. The Keys to Longevity with Dr. Mark Hyman

We think of aging as a normal consequence of getting older, but looked at a different way, aging can be seen as a disease — driven by upstream factors such as what we eat and think, the quality of our relationships and microbiome, exposure to toxins and allergens, and so on. The takeaway that Dr. Mark Hyman and Jeff discuss today: You don’t have to age the way you see so prevalent in modern society. As new research emerges, the field of human longevity is entering an exciting phase of development.Watch Dr. Hyman's new Commune master class, The Secrets to Healthy Aging, free at onecommune.com/longevity.The podcast originally aired in March 2022.

322. Commusings: Abortion Stories in Greyscale by Schuyler Grant

Stories about abortion are filed in the library of most families — legal, illegal, secret, tinged with relief or with regret. In this episode, Schuyler's mother shares the story of her two abortions, and Schuyler shares her experience of an appointment that came... and went. In a society that has made pro-choice or pro-life a black and white decision, this episode embraces the reality that abortion is non-binary – “not composed of or involving just two things.” In the greyscale, degrees of truth emerge, and maybe (just maybe) a middle path reveals itself.

Today’s musings comes after the haze of the fireworks has cleared, but the same can not be said for the social and political tensions that characterize the time.

300. Lesson: Love Is an Ability with Sharon Salzberg

When we experience fear, loss, or the hundred other daily stresses inherent in life, it can be easy to retreat inside ourselves until the whole world is just a single point of pain–our pain.

In this excerpt from her course, Compassionate Resilience, Sharon Salzberg speaks with insight and clarity about the expansion of spirit we call love.

283. Commusings: Moving On

In Japanese aesthetics, there is a concept known as yūgen, which has no real translation even though we have all felt it. In the Chinese philosophical texts from which the term was taken, yūgen meant "deep" or "mysterious." But really it points to a sensation of sadness. Not grief per se, but, rather, a delightful kind of wistfulness akin to the feeling that arises when listening to Satie or Debussy. It is strongly related to the acceptance of transience that is associated with wabi-sabi. Today’s musing attempts to poke at this feeling. Commusings is our format where we take a moment to think deeply on the topics of spirituality, philosophy, and culture.

259. Commusings: Everything in Moderation

In this time of political rancor and binary opposition, the only way out of fanaticism is for each of us to make a herculean effort toward finding common ground. This often involves the uncomfortable process of honestly assessing where our own positions have become more extreme. Commusings is our Sunday morning newsletter where we take a moment to think deeply on the topics of spirituality, philosophy, and culture. To sign up, visit onecommune.com.

258. Dr. David Perlmutter: Dropping Acid

Unless you had so much uric acid in your body that you developed gout, doctors have largely ignored this common biomarker. But according to Dr. Perlmutter, new research is showing a strong link between elevated uric acid and chronic diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's, and cardiovascular disease. Today’s show goes into depth about the evolutionary origins of our obesity epidemic, the importance of a low-sugar diet, and how tracking your own uric acids levels can be an important metric for your health.

256. Scarlett Lewis: Choosing Love and Forgiveness

On December 14, 2012, Scarlett Lewis’ 6-year-old son Jesse was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

In today’s show, Jeff and Scarlett discuss how grief transforms us, and how healing is possible through practicing forgiveness. Scarlett also shares how we can teach compassion and other essential skills in schools to help prevent future attacks from troubled kids.

251. Commusings: The Mosquito Bites an Iron Bull by Jake Laub

Yoga and ballet are so far apart on the movement spectrum that they curve around and settle next to each other in our minds. Kind of like how the political far left and far right can act in surprisingly similar ways even as they hold diametrically opposing values. The spectrum is U shaped, but you can’t simply hop over the gap. This is a story about going the long way around.

249. Commusings: Eat Dirt

Just as exposure to the natural environment builds a strong immune system, exposure to insult and ridicule can help you build mental resilience. The ancient Greeks dubbed this quality of character “euthymia,” a state of unflappable positivity that emerges from living calmly and steadily and being undisturbed by fear or offense.

248. Simon Hill: The Proof Is in the Plants

Why are we so confused about what to eat? If I eat a plant-based diet will I miss out on any vital nutrients? Should I prioritize protein or carbs? How do I optimize my microbiome?

247. David Kessler: Navigating the River of Grief

If you think of grief as a river, you can better understand your experience with it. Maybe you tiptoe slowly into the river, or wade in it for a long time as a loved one is dying or your marriage is ending.

Today's episode is an excerpt from the Commune course, The Work of Byron Katie. In this session, Laurie is recalling a situation in which she felt her partner was trying to control her. Katie then walks Laurie through the essential process of The Work: Is it true? Can you absolutely know that it's true? How do you react, what happens, when you believe that thought? And, who would you be without the thought? These four questions are followed by turning around the thought to experience the opposites of the thought.

243. Dr. Jolene Brighten: What Your Hormones Are Trying to Tell You

241. Commusings: To Meat or Not to Meat?

You don’t exactly “get protein from eating protein.” Some two hundred thousand proteins are synthesized by your cells using 21 amino acids — nine of which are not made endogenously in your body. So, you need to consume these nine essential amino acids. But do they have to come from meat? And what are the physiological impacts of eating meat? This spontaneous, bonus Commusings was published on Instagram by @jeffkrasno. You can also follow Commune @onecommune.

The philosophy of Stoicism is more than 2,000 years old, but remains remarkably practical.
