Happiness Part #3 (or “happiness pu pu platter”)

Since my recent “awakening,” I’ve spent the last few weeks getting deeper into this area of awareness, mindfulness, consciousness, and spirituality. Here, for your enlightenment, is a collection of some of my favorite teachers. 

I know I promised a full post on Brene Brown, and I will get to that, but in the interim, if you haven’t seen this TED talk, you must. Here’s her groundbreaking book The Gifts of Imperfection.


Here is Tara Brach (who is awesome by the way), talking about Happiness. Her youtube channel has a ton of amazing content. One of my favorites is the video on learning to respond rather than react.


Here is Jack Kornfield talking about forgiveness. His simple meditation on forgiveness is intensely profound. Try it.


Here is Dan Millman’s amazon page. I read The Way of the Peaceful Warrior and the Laws of Spirit in the last two weeks. Both were very good and worth reading – the same principles presented in slightly different ways. (They are available on Scribd, by the way). Here’s his TED talk.


Here is Eckhart Tolle talking about the Power of Now at Google. Check out some of his other videos on Youtube. He’s a really interesting person!


Finally, I’ve decided that I’m going to start training for the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage. Here is a documentary by Australian filmmaker Mark Shea.
