ZfEL Ep. 36: How to Live with the Spirit of Zen in Your Everyday Life


This week is "Zen week" on the ZfEL podcast and today's talk episode is all about how to live with the spirit of Zen in your everyday life. This is a subject I haven't much talked about yet on the podcast and so I'm excited to be talking about it with you now.

In this episode, I explain what I mean by "living with the spirit of Zen", why that's so powerful or beneficial, the major principles behind it, and 10 tips or strategies for doing so along with actionable steps for nearly all 10 points.

Also, make sure to listen to this week's guided meditation, ZfEL #37: Guided Meditation - Zazen.

Thank you for listening & let me know what you think. :)
