Nothing gets done.” ~ Yvon Chouinard. Podcast produced by: Vanessa Boehm; Music by Adam Agee, recorded live at Walk the Talk Show events.

 44: Idiot Compassion. | File Type: audio/mp4 | Duration: 15:53

“Idiot compassion is the highly conceptualized idea that you want to do good….But that doesn’t mean to say that you have to be gentle all the time. Your gentleness should have heart, strength. If you go to a shop and the shopkeeper cheats  you and you go back and let him cheat you again, that doesn’t seem to be a very healthy thing to do for others.” ~ Chogyam Trungpa Podcast produced by: Vanessa Boehm; Music by Adam Agee, recorded live at Walk the Talk Show events.

 39: The good and bad news about Grief. | File Type: audio/mp4 | Duration: 15:43

From a Buddhist perspective, the good news about grief is that we can all let go of it. The bad news is that letting go is hard, and letting go of something or someone we hold very dear to our hearts can be insulting to our egos. But enlightenment is just that—the ultimate insult to the ego. So, we learn to let go and the way to let go is to remember that we are okay. Nothing is fundamentally wrong with us.

 37: If you're Broken-Hearted. | File Type: audio/mp4 | Duration: 20:16

“We should always be a little broken-hearted. Broken-heartedness is not something that we are trying to get away from. We want to be broken-hearted all the time, because that leads to empathy. And empathy leads to catharsis. And catharsis leads to joy—genuine joy. Joy is another way of saying love. We cannot experience genuine joy or love if our heart is not open.” ~ Waylon Lewis. Podcast produced by: Vanessa Boehm; Music by Adam Agee, recorded live at Walk the Talk Show events.
