How do you handle difficulties in life? Some dig deep while others look outside. Host, Mike Domitrz, welcomes CAST members Vicki Abadesco, Mark Black and Darren Tipton to discuss difficulties. 

Today’s topic was inspired by a quote from Stephen Cope’s book, The Great Work of Your Life.  “When difficulties arise, give yourself to them. See them as dharma. Go into the heart of the difficulty. Experience it. Investigate it. Take yourself into the center of the conflict. Learn to tolerate its discomfort without acting or reacting. And what do you find at the heart of fear, dread, loathing, anger, and hatred? You find a surprise. You find a gift.”

After listening to the conversation, share examples of your difficulties on the Everyday Mindfulness Show Facebook page.

Host, Mike Domitrz, welcomes CAST members Rick Clemons, Jen Rulon,  Jill Schiefelbein, and Darren Tipton to discuss boldness. Today’s topic was inspired by the quote by Johan Van Gogh, “Whatever you do or dream you can do. Begin it. Boldness has genius and power and magic in it.”

Sharing their individual bold moments leads the group to unpack what being bold means, and possible underlying incentives for boldness. For some, weighing out worst case scenarios and fear are motivating factors to move beyond the status quo. Others find boldness an inherent quality that only needs the right catalyst to bring it out into the light.

After listening to the conversation, share your bold moments on The Everyday Mindfulness Show Facebook page.
