How often do you find yourself feeling reactive to the circumstances life hands you? Human beings are naturally reactive, and many times, that reactivity can actually be helpful. But, many times, our minds are tricked into reactivity in situations that don't actually call for it.
This week, we're speaking with Philip Cox-Hynd, a personal development facilitator and vipassana meditation teacher. He has trained some of the world's leading executives in companies like Microsoft and Pfizer, and today, he's here to train us.
In this conversation we talk about the difference between happiness and satisfaction. The role mindfulness plays in many facets of our lives. The role of pain and discomfort, as well as our ability to sit with it and be accepting of it when it comes. The connection between our mind and body and what our body can tell us about our own emotional profile. Finally, we talk about using all of those skills to help us in interpersonal communication, particularly when the conversation is more difficult.
