5 Tips for Living a Purposeful Life

And so we bid farewell to the mOnk and this series of 10 with this final climatic episode in which, on the eve of departure, a dusty tea-stained document is left on my desk, with a request to read out 5 Secrets for Living a Purposeful Life. Little remains now, other than Yak prints in the snow. Was it all just a figment of our collective imagination or did the mOnk once tread these dusty shores? Who knows, who can tell what is real and what is fake, what is substantial and what is imaginary. We, at least have a library of anecdotes, images, sounds and images to celebrate the comings and goings of the inner temple. Adieu. For links to the free course - visit Udemy - Tai Chi - Paul Read.

Finding Purpose in the Ordinary: A Conversation with Anthony Guilbert

Podcast 8 in the Series of 10: In this short, but fascinating conversation with writer, Anthony Guilbert, about his new book: Notes From the Drift, the teapotmonk discusses travel, fluidity, movement and how we can both interpret and employ the concepts from Taoism into our own lives. Anthony Guilbert may be a name familiar to some of you. As well as being a writer, lecturer, poet, spiritual anarchist and martial-artist he is well known for his successful online journal - Into Mountains Over Streams. ​ This month, Anthony launched a new publication - Notes From the Drift - a beautifully interwoven collection of observations and reflections on travel, time, change and adaptability. Anthony kindly gave me a little of his time early one morning this week (5 a.m) to talk about the book, his thoughts on 21st century Taoism and the importance of what we each can give to the world. Find his book on amazon or visit www.anthonyguilbert.net

What was your name again?

Titles and names in the arts don't always convey the message you think. Perhaps it's time to rethink those traditional descriptions that imply a relationship of obedience and deference. At the end fo the day, we are only describing those imparting a skill, and those receiving it. Plus - a brief look at how the field of technology is still changing the way we teach...

The Way Of Laughter

Perhaps the most subversive and under appreciated lessons we can impart is that of humour. Take yourself a little less seriously and the world sits back, relaxes and chuckles. Take yourself too seriously and sides form, tension builds and the world erupts into conflict. The mOnk explores the role of humour in the arts in this, the 2nd of his series of 10 podcasts on living in the 21st century. Learn more about the mOnk and 21st century Tai Chi at www.teapotmonk.com

The Cult of the Individual

Breaking out the new season of podcasts, episode 1 launches into a rewriting of the last 50 years as the mOnk speculates on what could have happened if Tai Chi and the internal arts had stayed true to their philosophical roots and deferred to the competitive and highly individual nature of western society.
