In this episode, I share my experience from my second visit to the California Vipassana Center where I recently sat for a 10 day silent meditation retreat.  I discuss meditation, and how to start and maintain a practice.

Vipassana is one of the world’s most ancient meditative techniques. It was practiced 25 centuries ago by Gotama the Buddha, who said he had rediscovered a much older practice. After his enlightenment in 528 BCE, the Buddha spent the remaining 45 years of his life teaching the way out of suffering. Vipassana is the essence of what he taught. The Buddha’s teaching is known by the general term Dhamma (Sanskrit: Dharma).

For five centuries Vipassana helped millions of people in India, the Buddha’s homeland. This era saw the matchless reign of the great Emperor Asoka (273-236 BCE) who united India and initiated a golden age of peace and prosperity. Asoka also sent ambassadors of Dhamma to all the neighboring kingdoms (including what has become Myanmar in modern times), thereby spreading both the practice and the words of the Buddha.

After about 500 years the practice of Vipassana had disappeared from India. Fortunately it was maintained by a continuous chain of meditation teachers in the neighboring country of Myanmar (Burma) until the present day.

In our time, Vipassana has been reintroduced to India and to people from all over the world by
S. N. Goenka, a retired industrialist of Indian heritage who was born in Myanmar. He learned the technique of Vipassana from Sayagyi U Ba Khin, the renowned lay Vipassana teacher who was the first to teach westerners in English. U Ba Khin appointed him to teach Vipassana in 1969.

Larry Hagner is the founder of The Good Dad Project and author of bestselling book: "The Dad's Edge."

His story and passion for being a father is a bit unique.

Larry grew up virtually in “fatherless environment” for most of my life.  He didn’t meet his real father until he was 30 years old.  As fate would have it, their paths crossed when he walked into a coffee shop eight years ago.  They now have a great relationship now and spend a great deal of time together.

It was really through his own childhood struggles that Larry realized true passion for being a dad.

Children are not born with manuals and the Journey of Fatherhood doesn’t necessarily come with a “map.”  There are challenges, twists, and turns along the way.

Larry says: "as much as we truly enjoy our children and being a father, we tend to internalize our struggles.  When we do that, we get distracted and stressed out.  As a result, we do not enjoy the Journey of being a Dad as much as we would really like to."

Larry is not a psychologist or counselor in family dynamics.  He doesn't have any accolades behind my name. He's an everyday dad trying to do the best job he can. He strives to be the best version of himself so he can guide his kids to be the best version of themselves.

In this episode of the Better Human Show, I go solo.  I share stories about what inspired the show, and what to expect in future shows.  I share trials, trouble, addictions & recovery, and the path that I've walked and lived to arrive here with you today.  I do my best bravely share my unfiltered, unvarnished story.  Not all of it is pretty, and hopefully you can learn from the stories I share.

A central theme is congruent living; or living in alignment with values.  I talk about how it felt to live a life where I was disconnected with my values, and how I subsequently found myself obese, alone and addicted, and how I turned it around to get healthy and fit again.

In this episode of the Better Human Show, I talk with Boysen Hodgson, communications director of the Mankind Project.  A lot of us have heard of the Mankind Project, but don’t really know what they do besides share some heartwarming & feel good content on social media, where they have about a million fans on Facebook. We talk about mythopoetic rituals and how to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships.

The ManKind Project flies in the face of rigid stereotypes about the "Sensitive New Age Man" AND the "Macho Man". The mankind projects asks men to go right up to the edge - and beyond - in a culture that seems to be comfortable with mediocrity and passivity from men. They ask men to stop living a vicarious adventure through their TV's and step into a real time adventure to win back their passion for life. They ask men to confront the real issues, to get 100% honest about who they are. Some men have a really hard time doing that. Many did too, but  took the risk anyway.  And we’ll talk about how life changes for men who begin to approach life differently after experiencing the New Warrior Training Adventure.

This conversation goes deep, and caused me to re-evaluate some long held beliefs.
