Host, Mike Domitrz, welcomes Alan Anderson for an enlightening conversation on mindfulness and living a life of mindfulness. Alan is an educator who has taken an unique journey over multitude of decades, including learning from some of the most renown teachers of Mindfulness in the World.
Together, Alan and Mike explore mindfulness beyond yoga and meditation, the depths a person must muddle through to attain mindfulness, and how to integrate multi-dimensional mindfulness into everyday life. They also explore the ideas of current thought leaders and books to assist those at any stage of their mindfulness journey.
What does it mean to be mindful? Is mindfulness a mindset, a way of life or is it a practice? Is mindfulness congruent with religion or meditation? Is mindfulness hard? Host Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST members Alan Anderson, Barry Moniak, and Holly Duckworth to explore common myths surrounding mindfulness and to share how mindfulness myths have affected their lives.
In what way does our ‘armor’ protect us and in what way does our armor keep us from growing? Do we wear certain armor because society expects it of us? Have we built up our armor so well that it has become a strength? Host, Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST members Alan Anderson and Darren Tipton to explore the various ways our armour show up. The answers might surprise you.
This conversation was inspired by the phrase “People make the armor from their smartness, or their anger, or their quiet, or their fear, or their being busy, or their being nice. Some people make it from a big show, always talking. Some make it by being very important.” — From Breakfast with Buddha, by Roland Merullo.
