Podcast 60 - The Victorious Breath

In Podcast 55 - Meditation Breathing Exercises, I discussed two breathing exercises from yoga that are useful in improving your emotional and physical state and preparing for meditation, alternate nostril breathing and the skull shine breath. There is a third breathing exercise that falls into this category, the victorious breath.The victorious breath is easy to learn, has immediate effects due to the oxygenation that it performs, and can be practiced in any posture. I've found it a useful technique to use when walking or waking up in the morning.This episode of the Shards of Consciousness podcast is based on a post I wrote in October, 2007 called The Victorious Breath.If what you hear is useful to you, subscribe to the Shards of Consciousness podcast through iTunes or the feed.

Podcast 60 - The Victorious Breath

Podcast 59 - What Is Personal Development?

Personal development means different things to different people. We may relate it to becoming more productive, attaining success in whatever field interests us, spiritual growth, or education. Personal development can relate to all these things, and more, but most of the definitions embody adding to, or taking away from, what we already are or have. I suppose this is inevitable. Much of the western world view is mechanistic. Personal development becomes an exercise in engineering wherein traits are added or subtracted from the personality according to plan.In the eastern view embodied in yoga, evolution is seen in terms of removing obstacles to expression, much as a sculptor removes stone to expose the piece of art that lies within. From this procedes an organic view of personal development, whereby that which already exists is allowed expression by the removal of barriers.In this podcast I emphasize the latter.This episode of the Shards of Consciousness podcast is based on a post I...

Podcast 55 - Meditation Breathing Exercises

Not all exercises require us to hit the gym. Sometimes the most effective techniques are also the most simple. Yoga long ago developed techniques that ask you to just sit quietly and breathe in a predetermined manner to experience changes in your health, improve your emotional well-being, and heighten your mental faculties....

Podcast 54 - How to Find Hidden Beliefs

Odd as it sound may sound, finding out what we believe isn't always an easy task. It isn't that the beliefs that shape our world are buried deep in our unconscious. They're not. But they do tend to hide in dusky, ill lit corners. They work their magic from the shadows while more obvious beliefs obscure their presence. In this podcast I talk about a way we can use our awareness of the obvious beliefs to sweep some of these shadow beliefs out of the corners and into the light where we can examine them and work with them....

Podcast 52 - Life Is Messy

Television shows can be the source of a lot of metaphors in our lives. And no wonder, there is an interplay between the fiction of the broadcast and the experience of living in which each shapes the other. In this episode of the Shards of Consciousness podcast I touch on cooking shows, and how they can accurately, and inaccurately, act as a metaphor for living....

The dictionary defines a hero as A person noted for feats of courage or nobility of purpose, especially one who has risked or sacrificed his or her life. We have all had heroes in our lives.
