In this episode, I have a talk with Isabelle de Burgh. She specializes in creating plant-based alternatives to recipes and teaches young teens the significance of nutrition for mental health amongst other things. She received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Southern California and has extensive training in health coaching through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. We talk about switching to a plant-based diet, a holistic approach to wellness, emotional eating and the effect of our metabolism on our everyday life.
Today I have a talk with Robert Beatty. Robert is a member of the first wave of Theravada Buddhist Teachers who brought the Dharma from Asia in the 1970’s. Robert founded the Portland Insight Meditation Community where he is the guiding teacher. He has a Masters Degree in Environmental Studies from York University in Toronto, and Masters in Social Work from Portland State. Robert has extensive training in numerous Western therapies. This episode goes a bit deeper under our skin and proposes various questions like: Can we fully heal our trauma? What exactly is enlightement? Do we need a guide for our practice? And what can we do about the climate crisis?
Today I have a talk with Robert J. Goodman, Ph.D., assistant professor at Northern Arizona University. Robert is a psychologist who examines the neurological, behavioral and psycho social consequences of mindfulness. In this episode, we talk about the influence of mindfulness on memory, regulating emotions, the practice of Satipatthana and aging-related memory decline. I'm sure this talk will help you understand why this practice is so important for each one of us. I'm joined by Tim Schofield from the UK, one of our community members who writes about non-duality and minimalism, who provides additional questions and input.
