Practice. Sitting down and being still and watching our minds. This is the only way to get where we want to go. We can't read ourselves there. We can't watch Eckhart Tolle on YouTube until we 'finally get it'. At some point, we have to stop the tendency to sit on the sidelines listening to others and bravely step into practice. In this episode, I talk about how we get stuck in study, how we can re-learn to trust ourselves and our own experience, and how to create a practice that we can really stick with.

We all have goals. And having hopes for the future and dreams of change are part of the creative expression of our life. But if we're honest, many of our goals are born from a negative judgement about where we are right now. In this episode, I talk to Cynthia Joanne, yoga teacher, animal lover, and global traveler, who has some pretty amazing reflections on the process of change, how we think about our goals and what intentions we bring to the process. Find Cynthia on IG @cynthiajoanneyoga

If we picture our inner experience like an inner sky, does that change what we think we're looking forward with meditation practice? In this episode I share my own reflections about the inner sky we each experience and how we can learn to be okay being ourselves whatever our inner sky looks like today. I'd love to hear your thoughts after your listen, so DM on IG @sarahbhunt and join the Messy Luminous Being weekly emails (they are the best!) https://mailchi.mp/sarahbhunt/messyluminousbeing

Messy, Luminous, Being Podcast

We are, quite simply, a part of the natural world, and the same processes and rhythms that govern the world around us also work within us. In this episode I talk to botanist, mother, wild flower meadow tender and botanical skin care product creator Sally Gouldstone. This conversation is full of Sally's insights about how we relate to the natural world and what we can rediscover about ourselves (as well as super incredible stories about Borneo jungles and Madagascar snakes!).

Messy, Luminous, Being Podcast

What does it mean to be a woman practicing a meditation tradition handed down largely by men? Over the past decade, I have reframed my own role as a woman within yoga and meditation as bringing a new kind of creative and energetic methodology to the way we work spiritually within ourselves. In this episode I share my vision for what women and feminine vision can bring to the way we practice meditation and yoga.

Episode 070 When less is more show art Episode 070 When less is more

Messy, Luminous, Being Podcast

When does less effort get us more results? When does less choice feel like freedom? When do less decisions create more time? These are questions that have come out of my efforts to bring the spirit of meditation and mindfulness into the practical areas of my life. Just like we are trying to direct our thoughts towards things that serve us, that cultivate joy and kindness and wisdom, we also want to direct our most precious resources — our time and our energy — towards the things that really matter to us

I'll be running the Forward From Here online summit again in late March and you can sign up now (it's FREE!) here: https://mailchi.mp/sarahbhunt/forwardfromheremarch2021

Episode 068 How can I be happy when people I love are suffering? show art Episode 068 How can I be happy when people I love are suffering?

Messy, Luminous, Being Podcast

This question came up in a group discussion recently and I wanted to spend this episode sharing a personal story as well as Buddhist & meditation teachings related to the question. If there is one motivation that drives my work, my business and my own personal meditation practice, it is this question. I hope this honesty helps and inspires us to keep practicing so that whenever anyone in our life reaches out a hand, we are there with wisdom and compassion to take it.

Messy, Luminous, Being Podcast

In this episode, I talk about getting out of the mindset of striving for perfect. Perfect is a concept made up by the ego-mind. Here's how I'm thinking about it instead, but a few sneak peeks from the Forward From Here summit speakers Dani Mae, Clem Cocquet & Natasha Lythgoe on exhaling, expanding time and moving into right relationship with ourselves.

How can we learn to get into the flow and allow things to be easy? (Or at least easier...) In this episode, yogi Claire Graham reflects on the way we experience the fluxuations of yin and yang energy. She highlights how we are taught if we are not directing things and "making things happen" we are failing...and why this is exactly the opposite to the wisdom of yin and getting into the flow. And she shares her own experience of yoga and mindfulness practices as a way out of this habitual pattern of pushing, forcing, and working too hard.
