Podcast 28: The Renaissance Crew - group meditation

September 26, 2014

Getting back to our roots:  Its been over a year since Team Renaissance had a catch up podcast.  We have had so many wonderful guests that we felt it time for the 3 of us to catch up.

More importantly, Fran, Ahn and I do a 25 minute guided meditation just before recording the podcast.   It's an amazing video that Sam Harris narrates and is available on Youtube.  If you have not  meditated before, I strongly suggest that you commit to doing the 25 minute exercise and watch how you grow and develop in such a short time frame. 

As soon as you begin to meditate, you will have so many thoughts rushing into your mind such as, this is a waste of time,  my back hurts, this is stupid, why am i doing this, what am i going to eat for dinner etc.  The purpose of the exercise is to realise that this is going to happen, but what can we do about it once we recognise they are happening.   This is the basis to controlling how you feel in life and how you will be able to effectively have more control on your thoughts and happiness. 

Anh, Fran and i talk in detail about our internal dialogues on the podcast.
