Welcome to the Rebel Buddhist™ Podcast, where I help you free your mind so you can free your life. This podcast is for the rebellious ones. The wild people. I share my stories and what I’ve learned about being a rebel soul who wants to tame her mind…but not her life. It’s led to plenty of adventures and misadventures. I’ve learned tons of tools that combine Buddhist psychology, real-world mindfulness, cognitive coaching, and modern brain science – sort of like if Buddhism and science had a love child. I want to share them with you as we walk this path together. I’m not sharing this as a dharma teacher, but as a fellow practitioner with some street cred. Welcome to my world.

Ep. 126: How to Know if You’re Making Spiritual Progress

We often focus too much on our imperfections instead of the progress we are making.

Listen to learn over 10 ways we can see our own growth in our physical, emotional, and spiritual lives. Plus find out why discernment is such a key part in continuing our path and learn how our progress can help us face future suffering and leave what no longer serves us behind.

Ep. 125: Authenticity, Courage, and Relationships

This week we talk about the importance of showing up authentically in relationships… even when we are afraid the other person won’t accept us for who we are. I’ll share my own story about how my husband and I could have ended it… and how my choice to speak and act wisely changed the course of our relationship and our parenting forever (and for good)!

Ep. 124: “Who Am I?” Loneliness and Our Self-Concept

This week, we explore the question of “Who Am I?” and how that relates to being a medicine of sorts for the epidemic of loneliness we are experiencing in society. I’ll talk about how the exploration of awareness can help us define our own identity and how to find a balance between ourselves and the bigger picture of existence… plus I give you some practices you can take to help you step back when we get hooked by a story that our “small sense of self” creates..

This week, I share some thoughts on creating emotional safety, which is essential for our growth and healing. Tune in to learn why truth is important for our healing and why an internal environment of safety is just as crucial as an external one.

Ep. 122: Come See for Yourself – Ehipassiko

The reason I called this podcast Rebel Buddhist is because it’s meant to encourage one’s own inquiry into the teachings and to not just accept things on blind faith or without deep inquiry into the teachings; to encourage questioning and for people to have different experiences of that exploration and that it is OK.

Ep. 121: Clarity is a Decision

In this episode, I talk about the idea that clarity is some passive “aha” moment that just falls into our lap, when in reality, clarity is an active decision that we must all make. Listen to find out why we all need clarity, and what you can do when you think you’ve found clarity, but suddenly, good ol’ doubt starts to creep back in.
