Religion & Spirituality:Spirituality
Integrating Spirituality, Psychology, Trauma, Healthy Masculinity and Being brave enough to ask the most important questions
Inside each of us lives a library of the Universe and if we read from this, we can learn who our most authentic selves are and heal our traumatized parts as well as the parts of ourselves we have ostracized. In this deeply profound episode with Dr. Michael Sapiro, discussed is:
We all have an innate genius that wants to come out. The more awareness we bring to every layer of self, than the more we can thrive.
Being a “modern mystic” is taking time to be with the ordinary and great mystery of life.
The difference between selfishness and self focus is discussed. The need to love ourselves: our body’s health, our mind’s well being and our spiritual life. Our bodies, brains and hearts need our tending as we are manifestations of what is most sacred.
Unpacked is the importance of awareness to all aspects of self and the somatic component of our emotions. The language of emotions is sensation.
The importance of finding the “right” meditation and breathwork specifically for your disposition and the importance of learning to be with “boredom.”
In facing ourself in meditation, we get to know wounded parts of self, the parts of us that we punish or banish and don’t know how to greet, or love in addition to the Self.
Using creativity to support working with trauma and PTSD.
Inside of you is library of the Universe. Each of us has to read what’s inside ourself and living from that. Then we will learn to work with wounded parts of self.
Nature is a tuning fork to align us with ourselves and has the power to heal us.
Discussed is how we can align with our heart values and some questions we can ask ourselves to do so.
Why am I not living alignment? His job is to help people recognize heart values and then live in them all the time.
Discussed is the practice of Yoga Nidra (& iRest) where you travel through all of the Koshas, the layers of Self. There is a whole episode on the Koshas that has been very popular called Journeying Through Yourself: Your Energy Map of the 5 Koshas - Episode # 49
Discussed is the notion of how to try and create “healthy masculinity.”
Unpacked is shame vs remorse.
This interview ends with a supremely lovely, brief guided meditation that can be listened to again and again.
