Another short update on what inspired me recently. Enjoy!
What I’m experimenting with
Cody released new The Balancing Act plan with Patrick Beach and I’m having a lot of fun with it. Plan contains 11 balancing sessions: wild thing, peacock, crow and variations (side & flying crow), flying scissor (Eka Pada Koundinyasana), traditional & tripod headstand, flying pigeon, crane and eight angle pose.
I tried Patrick’s older plans on Cody and I wasn’t impressed by quality of some of them to be honest. This one however is really nicely done. Each video is not too long, just 15-20 minutes, and can be easily done as a stand alone practise or added to a longer one. What I like most is, that Patrick doesn’t waste time on talking too much and goes straight to action!
Inspiration for the week
Patrick Beach – his profile on Cody:
Life is big. It can’t be confined to a rectangular mat.
Podcast episode that impacted me the most
2 podcasts on meditation:
- Lessons From A 1 Year Meditation Sabbatical w/ Karan Bajaj on The Becoming SuperHuman Podcast. Incredible story of a man, who takes a year away from work and embarks on spiritual journey of self discovery to find purpose and meaning in life, dive deep into meditation and practise “willful poverty”.
Strip yourself of comfort very often. The attachment to comfort leads to very limiting choices.
- Yashoda: GO Beyond Mind/Body with Meditation & Yoga on the Yoga Revealed Podcast – Yashoda Devi-Ma, Vedic Meditator Teacher talks about how she discovered yoga and meditation, why there is no such thing as “bad meditation” or “good meditation” and what are the benefits of mantra based vedic meditation.
When you stop resisting what’s showing up in your meditation, you’ll stop resisting life.
Anamnesis is a very cool sci-fi web series about the phenomenon of lucid dreaming.
Anamnesis: the recollection or remembrance of the past.
Synopsis: A group of strangers realize they’re able to share each other’s dreams; to understand why, they’ll have to find each other in the real world.
