Episode Description

Ready to be THE CALM amidst the CHAOS? Here’s how!

The power of presence is a superpower that leads to deeper fulfillment in life. And in this episode, meditation master davidji & transformational alchemist Elizabeth Winkler share the secrets of living in the present moment as the key to greater clarity, happiness, empathy, emotional intelligence, and creativity. Our co-hosts share the surprising tranquility that a meditation practice brings to our most important relationships, our daily decision-making, and navigating the often chaotic morning routine of getting ready and out the door to work & school.

Parenthood, with its relentless pace, often leaves us yearning for a pause button. Elizabeth shares her own journey of finding peace of mind amidst the turbulence of restless kids in carseats. davidji takes you through the power of Pratyahara, the practice of releasing all of our senses and turning inward, and its application in our daily hustle & flow. As they exchange stories and insights, you’ll discover how a consistent meditation practice can not only offer a refuge of calm but also enhance the dynamic bond with our children. It’s about being the stillness inside the storm and learning to welcome life’s interruptions with grace and laughter.

Wrapping up the episode, the transformational pair boldly discuss the illusions we all chase: our perceived need to be perfect, the finish line of life, adulthood’s pressures, and the ever-lurking impostor syndrome. The Shadow and The Light Podcast casts a light on these hidden facets of ourselves, celebrating a holistic embrace of life’s full spectrum. We leave you with practical mindfulness techniques and an invitation to hold up the mirror and continuing to explore the depths of our shared human experience.

Big shoutout to the amazing Jamar Rogers for creating such powerful music and lyrics for the official song of The Shadow & The Light Podcast! Deep gratitude~
