Resolutions, Intentions & Goals - Oh My!

Dec 23, 2019

Tis that time of the year, right? How does this sound: I am going to lose weight because I am fat and hate my body. I am going to spend more time with my kids because I stink at parenting. I am going to try and find a relationship with a different kind of person, not all the jerks I always seem to attract. I need to make more money because I never have enough.  Sound familiar?

In this episode, we are going to get a grip on goals, intentions, and resolutions and begin to set ourselves up...

Loving Kindness - Close your Eyes and Let's Meditate!

Dec 16, 2019

In today’s episode, we are going to shift from listening to motivation for meditation to actually meditating, with a Loving-kindness meditation.  You may listen to this episode while driving, but you will likely want to sit down, close your eyes and give yourself the best gift of this holiday season, the gift to sit still for about 15-20 minutes.  When you try to find goodness in other people, you naturally want to understand them and feel how they feel.  If you want to...

Dec 02, 2019

In today's episode, we will discuss how to get off that emotional road to the holidays and buy yourself, or your brain, some time and peace. Thanksgiving just passed, and I hope you all had a great holiday. Maybe you are so excited that you desire the next holiday is just as perfect.

Or maybe it didn't meet your high...

Rick Ledgett- Show Notes

Quotes from Mr. Ledgett:

“I am a long-time/life-time Dallas Cowboys fan, which is just further proof of intelligence.  Which is opposed to being a Redskins fan.”

 “Let me just say, it (Yoga Nidra) works great!.... One way is that sometimes I wake up at 2:00 am in the morning and I will do Yoga Nidra for 20 minutes and I am back to sleep, with no issues and not needing to take any drugs.”

 “… focused on the science...

A Short Silent Retreat can Change Your World - Create Your Own!

Nov 11, 2019

What is a silent retreat, and why would you actually want to put yourself through that? I get this question a lot, so I thought it was a good time to answer it. Right now, while I am in the moment! 

I really am in the moment because I have just completed a personal Noble Silence Retreat, which means silence of the body, speech, and mind. I consider it a private retreat because I put it together myself, my rules, no one else. This type of time can not only be enjoyable, but you can also...

Episode 6 - Good Sleep Now - Meditation and Zs

Oct 21, 2019

Intro:

00:06 Oh, the joy of a beautiful night's sleep. Sleep is so important, from lowering our stress, to even our cholesterol. Some may say I am a bit obsessed with sleep. I am not obsessed with sleeping, but I am very concerned with the quality of sleep. When our sleep declines, so does our health. Unfortunately, we seem to reach for an answer quickly, and often that answer is in the form of a pill or herbal pill. Whatever its, I am not touting these things, but I really feel we need to...
