Modern Distractions

Modern Distractions

By Stephanie Seferian

We are taught from an early age that contentment is found in possessions. But lasting peace comes from within, and meditation is a powerful (and free!) way to find what so many of us seek.  Yet thanks to All. The. Distractions, modern life has engineered out opportunities to go inward. And at the same time? Meditation has never been more needed or necessary. On today's show, a conversation with Brett Koon about the #1 way to boost happiness, reduce stress, hop off the consumerist bandwagon for good and - most importantly - find out who you really are. Here's a preview: [7:00] Happiness isn't in stuff, and life isn't a scavenger hunt to amass 'things' [10:30] Feelings are just thoughts with lag time (and they aren't the real YOU!) [14:00] The separation of awareness and mind takes time. Enter modern distractions [26:00] Is the solution to climate anxiety as simple as surrendering? [33:00] Common meditation myths debunked, plus: quick wins for getting started   Resources mentioned: The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment (by Eckhart Tolle) A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose (by Eckhart Tolle) This show is listener-supported. Thank you for supporting!
