Talk/Guided Meditation with Tara Brach

A few years back my friend Maria of Brain Pickings pointed me to Tara Brach’s guided meditations. They have carried me through some difficult times and I can’t thank Tara enough for so generously offering these podcasts for free. This morning, I listened to the above talk on relaxing the over-controller and it really hit home. Watch the talk and then enjoy the guided meditation at the end. It’s just what I needed. Maybe some of you do too…

Sounds of NYC

My studiomate Gabe just launched Sounds of NYC in collaboration with Breather (a service I LOVE). So simple. So lovely.

Simon Sinek on CreativeMornings/Podcast

Simon Sinek’s recent CreativeMornings talk just went live on our CreativeMornings Podcast. In his talk, Simon shares insights on millennials, technology, and the importance of empathy in good leadership. We flourish when we’re seen, when our work matters, and when we connect with and understand one another. And he asks: Are you willing to do the hard work of building meaningful relationships?

Listen to it on our podcast or watch the video here.

How I Built This: Yves Chouinard

Enjoyed this How I Built This Episode with Patagonia founder Yves Chouinard. He started the company in 1973, to make climbing gear he couldn’t find elsewhere. Over decades of growth, he has implemented a unique philosophy about business, leadership and profit. Incredibly inspiring. Especially, the ant analogy. Have a listen.
