ZfEL Ep. 1: How to Be Yourself in Every Moment: Expressing Your Authentic Self, Realizing Your True Nature, and Living with No Regrets

Zen for Everyday Life Podcast

For many of us, they are the hardest things we will ever do: to face the fear of what others think of us, to work through the inner dialogue that keeps us questioning our self-worth and perpetuating the feeling of voidness (something is missing) and to push further to the deepest reaches of spiritual practice to reunite with, and fully express, our true nature.

In this very first episode of the Zen for Everyday Life podcast I shed light on each of these challenges, talk about the common thread that ties them all together, and cover the key practices to begin working through them.
