Michelle’s End of Year Musings – Tis the Season To Be Ballsy!

In this special, final, holiday-inspired episode of 2016, Michelle bravely takes off her typically-neutral host hat and openly shares her personal (and sometimes prickly) musings about 2016, including:

  • the exciting roller coaster of launching Nothing Off Limits podcast,
  • how it’s totally okay (and you’re not alone) if you’re not exactly jolly this year
  • things she’s learned this year (it’s probably not what you expect),
  • things she’s grateful for (again, likely things you won’t expect), and
  • what to expect from NOL in 2017.
  • Oh, and there’s a call-to-action that will cost you zero dollars but would be an amazing gift to show your appreciation and support for the show. 🙂

Share in the possibility of a laugh as 2016 comes to completion and Michelle flatly expresses how awesome that truly is! 

Thanks so much for listening these last 6 months – much more to come in 2017!!

Happy/Merry whatever you celebrate!

 

Kathy Brooks Talks Transcendental Meditation and the Science Behind It

Earlier this year, I became very interested in learning more about Transcendental Meditation. After some quick outreach, I was referred to this week’s NOL guest, the delightful Kathy Brooks, who is one of the co-directors of the Washington, DC TM Center. 

Kathy has an MA in SCI (Science of Creative Intelligence), and she has been a full-time certified teacher of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) program for 40 years this year. She has taught hundreds of people the TM technique in various places, both in the US and in India.
 
Before serving as co-director of the Washington, DC TM Center, Kathy also served on the faculty and a variety of administrative positions at Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa for 30 years. MUM is a unique Consciousness-Based educational institution accredited through Ph.D. that offers standard academic disciplines along with a focus on the development of consciousness. The students, faculty and staff practice the TM technique.  

For more information, please visit tm.org.

Some things Kathy and I discuss:

– What drew her to meditation and the TM technique
– How TM works and why it’s practiced twice per day
– TM isn’t just for celebrities
– The use of mantras to assist meditation
– The benefits of TM on our personality and health
– The scientific research behind TM, including positive changes in the body & brain
