Is there a connection between nudity and mindfulness? Do you pass judgments of shame and fear about yourself and your sexuality? What you see when you look at yourself naked in the mirror can be much different than what you feel when you look at yourself naked in the mirror. But if you can approach your body from a place of gratitude, realizing we are all naked under our clothes, you can own your nakedness for the beautiful gift that it is.

Host Mike Domitrz welcomes CAST members Rick Clemons, Sean Douglas, Dr. Paul Jenkins, Lisa Baker-King and Barry Moniak to enlighten us with their unique perspective on being naked.

It's no secret - politics can be anything BUT mindful. Have you found yourself unfollowing friends on social media? Is it hard to not get sucked into the mud slinging? How do we or should we acknowledge opposing views? Is it possible to maintain mindfulness during a political discussion, is the cavernous topic Mike poses to CAST members, Dr. Jenn Gunsaullus and Alison Morano.

Mike kicks things off with this quote: “Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt
