We rarely see our imperfections as an opportunity for spiritual growth. Our guest tonight on Coach Cafe, Polly Campbell, will stand that idea on it's head! She will show us how our imperfections are not liabilities, they instead hold possibilities and can be the very things that put us on the path to our growth and well-being.
Polly is a well known speaker and writer, as well as a teacher with The Daily Om. Her latest book is Imperfect Spirituality: Extraordinary Enlightenment for Ordinary People and she will be speaking with us about how to be easier on ourselves and bring spiritual practices and growth into our lives in ways that work for us. You will love her gentle approach to evolving your life and living it consciously in each moment, even if you are dealing with dinner burning while the dog just threw up on the floor and the kids want your attention!

Pulling a raisin out of a two-year-old’s nose probably wasn’t on Buddha’s path to enlightenment, but it was one of the obstacles for author Polly Campbell. For many people, stuck raisins and other real-life moments provide a day’s only opportunity for spiritual growth. Imperfect Spirituality shows readers how to integrate those everyday moments with traditional spiritual techniques to experience personal growth and greater well-being. Any activity can be transformed into a spiritual practice. Don’t have a half-hour to meditate? Can't drop everything à la Elizabeth Gilbert and trek to Italy? Find mini-meditation while stopped at a red light impossible? Start by brushing your teeth.Imperfect Spirituality is filled with practical tips and dozens of examples like these, as well as anecdotes from real people striving to grow both spiritually and personally. Polly Campbell emerges here as an important new voice in spirituality, offering enlightenment for "the rest of us."
Author and Speaker Polly Campbell says, "I’m not always the most spiritual person. For instance, I didn’t feel peaceful when my daughter swallowed a penny. I’m not all that loving when my husband forgets to fill the car’s tank and I don’t even WANT be mindful when I’m sitting in the dentist’s chair.
But I do believe that we can live happier, healthier, more peaceful lives by choosing our thoughts and taking inspired action. I spend much of my time reading and studying how to do this. I live this stuff — when I’m not wiping up sticky counters, and sometimes, even while I am. I practice the traditional techniques as well as the newest self-improvement strategies. I write about this stuff for magazines and Web sites. And my book, Imperfect Spirituality: Extraordinary Enlightenment for Ordinary People."

Popular blogger and workshop facilitator Polly Campbell, a favorite journalist for Daily Om and Psychology Today, emerges here as a fresh and important new voice in spirituality who offers a path to enlightenment for "the rest of us."
Buddha probably never pulled a raisin out of a toddler's nose on his path toward enlightenment, but stuck raisins and other real-life moments have provided writer Polly Campbell plenty of opportunities for spiritual growth and self-improvement. Campbell’s articles on personal development topics and spiritual practices appear regularly in national publications and blogs and she is also a professional speaker who inspires and energizes audiences with a blend of wit and wisdom. She admits to practicing many of the things she writes and speaks about in her own quest to find more peace, happiness and sometimes just socks that match. The spiritual practices and personal development strategies she practices have also helped her cope with chronic illness – juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and a melanoma cancer scare. Despite these and the other every-day challenges, Campbell has consistently developed her own spiritual practice by adapting the most powerful principles to fit into her unpredictable lifestyle. Her down-to-earth, and imperfect yet practical, approach has helped others uncover their own greatest potential and live close to spirit. Campbell is also a multi-tasking wife and mother, an avid player of Candyland, a forever fan of University of Oregon Duck football and a reader of personal development and spirituality books from her home in Oregon.
Today's I share my own life's journey from losing a brother to the disease of bipolar to facing what might be my greatest achievement. If you wonder how you can claim to be spiritual or Christian or to trust any force greater than yourself and take medication for bipolar disorder or any number of other conditions, you probably don't talk about. This is the place to find out we all feel the same way. It is shameful and weak to need medication, right?

Brief review of "how to find your mission in life" - an appendix to What Color Is Your Parachute? by Richard Nelson Bolles. Then music (see below). Then a discussion of three recent books dealing with the topic of the "spiritual but not religious" demographic in America. Gloom, doom, and eschatology through the lens of a somewhat frivolous denizen of the Piedmont of North-Carolina.
