Becoming a Master Communicator Through Mindfulness - with Jonathan Miller
Jun 28 2020 56 mins  
Communication and Mindfulness are SO intertwined. Our guest this Sunday, Jonathan Miller, digs deep into how (through mindfulness) we can deal with conflicts with ease, navigate difficult conversations and become better communicators. We get into all of the following (and more):- Why being friendly & agreeable does not necessarily mean that you are a good communicator- Why we need to have conversations around how we communicate (especially with our significant others)- How most of our communication behavior is inherited and passed down from generation to generation - How YOU can utilize Vipassana meditation to make you a better communicator - How we can use conflict to grow as people and enrich our relationships (as opposed to letting it paralyze us)- Practical tips on how  to deal with conflict (Hint: the first one is to "SLOW DOWN")- Why listening is MORE important than speaking when it comes to communication Jonathan also gives us a gift!

Going DEEP with Former NFL'er Grant Mattos
May 29 2020 74 mins  
On this one, we go DEEP with former NFL Wide Receiver and Survivor Contestant, turned husband, father and yoga instructor, Grant Mattos. Grant takes us through his journey from living in a house with NFL legends Carson Palmer and Troy Polamalu, to lining up next to his childhood idol, Jerry Rice. All as a part of making his (and his father's) dream of making it to the NFL a reality. He also recaps what it was like to "lose it all", being forced to completely reinvent himself and his identity once his tenure in football came to an end.... We go deep on the importance of those friends who are there for you at your darkest hour.... On the "laser like" focus and faith it takes to play a sport at the highest level.... On how once you have done the deep (and difficult) inner work to get to a point where you feel "whole" and "without void", the things you previously were anxiously clasping for suddenly are naturally attracted into your life (in Grant's case, his dream relationship)....  On what Grant says to anyone who says "yoga, meditation and mindfulness just aren't for me"... On the power of honoring our emotions (even the negative ones)... And finally on how a hug can be worth 1,000 words...Sit back, relax, take a few DEEP breaths and ENJOY! Side note - the best way to connect with Grant is via instagram at @grantmattos (he is regularly hosting guided meditations (and more) on instagram live with MUCH more to come!)
