We long for a glimpse of who we really are, beyond reactive thinking and day-to-day routines. We yearn for a moment of “awakening,” one that changes us completely and unleashes a wellspring of energy and love. Arjuna Ardagh is an adept at such awaking. The author of Better Than Sex, The Ecstatic Art of Awakening Coaching, he says, “We all have our stories: we were born somewhere, we have our profession and family, our accomplishments and our defeats. But if we are willing to inquire, then we can shift from the small confines of the story of “me and my life” to the more expanded possibilities of contribution, connection and awakening.” Arjuna is an Awakening Coach, writer and public speaker, who has trained more than 1300 people to become facilitators of awakening. He is the author of eight books, including the 2005 #1 national bestseller The Translucent Revolution, featured in “O” magazine.
As the great Zen master Alan Watts said: “We all need to go out of our minds at least once a day!” Going Out Of Your Mind with Ed and Deb Shapiro is a chance for you to drop your analyzing and intellectual mind and come into the immediate experience of present awakening. We are irreverent spiritual teachers and don’t take ourselves too seriously so our discussion show has a great sense of humor while also exploring in depth what it means to live with integrity, awareness, kindness, compassion, and humility.
We will be talking with some of the most luminous women and men about how their lives reflect that luminosity, how they relate to the trials and tribulations of ordinary life, and how this can be of benefit to you. They are people from all walks of life: scientists, actors, activists, musicians, comedians, and business leaders – people whose lives you would never have guessed were rooted in meditation and freedom.
Ed and Deb Shapiro are featured bloggers on HuffingtonPost.com, Oprah.com, and VividLife.me. They teach meditation worldwide and are corporate consultants. They are award-winning authors of BE THE CHANGE, How Meditation Can Transform You and the World, foreword by the Dalai Lama, winner of the 2010 Gold Nautilus Book Award; and YOUR BODY SPEAKS YOUR MIND, winner of the 2007 Visionary Book Award. http://www.edanddebshapiro.com/
