    Guest: Karen Maezen Miller, author of Momma Zen

    in Relationships

    This week on Relationships 2.0 my guest is Karen Maezen Miller, author of Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood.

    Combining humor, honesty, and plainspoken advice, Momma Zen distills the doubts and frustrations of parenting into vignettes of Zen wisdom.

    Drawing on her experience as a first-time mother, and on her years of Zen meditation and study, Miller explores how the daily challenges of parenthood can become the most profound spiritual journey of our lives.

    This compelling and wise memoir follows the timeline of early motherhood from pregnancy through toddlerhood. Momma Zen takes readers on a transformative journey, charting a mother’s growth beyond naive expectations and disorientation to finding fulfillment in ordinary tasks, developing greater self-awareness and acceptance—to the gradual discovery of “maternal bliss,” a state of abiding happiness and ease that is available to us all.

    In her gentle and reassuring voice, Karen Miller convinces us that ancient and authentic spiritual lessons can be as familiar as a lullaby, as ordinary as pureed peas, and as frequent as a sleepless night. She offers encouragement for the hard days, consolation for the long haul, and the lightheartedness every new mom needs to face the crooked path of motherhood straight on.

    About the author:
    Karen Maezen Miller is a wife and mother as well as a Zen Buddhist priest at the Hazy Moon Zen Center in Los Angeles. She and her family live in Sierra Madre, California, with a century-old Japanese garden in their backyard. She writes about spirituality in everyday life. She is the author of Paradise in Plain Sight: Lessons from a Zen Garden, Hand Wash Cold: Care Instructions for an Ordinary Life, Momma Zen: Walking the Crooked Path of Motherhood, and her writing is included in numerous anthologies.

    power of perception film with Chris and Jeff of the painting show

    in Spirituality

    The Painting Show is a radical talk show that uses animation and film
    clips to explore the minds of misunderstood celebrities.
    Creators Jeff and Chris have spent the last year working on a show
    that explores and challenges guests in a way like never seen before. They
    are two very different artists who met and found they shared a similar
     interest in the human mind and the many ways that we don't communicate what
    is going on inside of our heads. Mental health has become the great taboo
     only to be spoken about by professionals and only after a breakdown. The
     creators of The Painting Show believe that self-reflection and personal
    conversations within our day to day life is possible and when done correctly
    is an art form within itself. The Painting Show gives a platform for a guest
     to actively see themselves from the outside to see the possible forces
     working inside. Chris and Jeff operate within the show as guides within a
     dream absorbing information and showing it back to the guest
    >decontextualized and open for interpretation.
    The show which is in pre-production of the pilot episode has featured
     eighties child star Corey Feldman in a proof of concept draft and has Edwin
    Aguliar, sixteen year veteran of The Simpsons working on the show as
     animation director.
     The Painting Show is currently raising money on Kickstarter.

    Ask Herbal health Expert Susun Weed & Nature Painting with JF Peters

    in Self Help

    Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with JF Peters. "I believe I paint to help preserve the beauty of nature. My creative process would not be possible without this clear, meaningful purpose. I guess you might say, this is my spiritual trip, to which I am totally commited.  The images of my paintings begin in my mind. They appear as a blend of memory (beautiful places I've experienced) and imagination. After a few years, the image calls me to the point that I begin to slowly and methodically, bring the painting out onto the canvas. When the calling ceases, the painting is born. Nature is my guide and the vehicle for my creation."

    Painting Your Life Masterpiece with Mindfulness Meditation

    in Spirituality

    If life is a blank canvas waiting for us to paint our vision, ever wonder why so many of us have not yet painted our masterpiece?  It may be that we have not given our life the proper focus to align the energy of change - to draw forth that next level of vibrational frequency that lifts us higher into the realm of thought fulfilling experience.  We know it's possible; we may have even exercised this gift before.  Yet the question is:  "How do we remain consistent?"  Mindfulness meditation is an entry into that portal.  Our guest, Charles A. Francis, will explain how through simple and constant practice, we can gloriously paint the canvas that is our life.

    Charles A. Francis, is the co-founder and director of the Mindfulness Meditation Institute. He has studied the practice of mindfulness with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. For over 18 years, he has worked to help people find inner peace through mindfulness meditation.
