    Virtue of Surrender & Headache: Not Tonight – Read My Lips Radio w/ akaRadioRed

    in Lifestyle

    Read My Lips Radio - January 18, 2016 guests


    Vishnu Swami, known as the Maverick Monk, presents new, fun and understandable ways of condensing the 5,000-year-old spiritual wisdom of India to empower and insire us in modern times. He calls himself "risky and radical", and his words are designed to spark intrigue and introspection. His book, The Virtue of Surrender, will be published in Summer 2016. Topics he will discuss include …Why women are more spiritual than men. Why happiness requires being addicted to Spiritual Surrender. How he became the youngest Swami ever. www.vishnu-swami.com.


    Chronic headaches are "serious business" that can turn life's simple pleasures into a problem. There are very effective medical (Western) as well as equally effective alternative (Eastern) strategies for both headache treatment and prevention, says Ravinder Singh, MD, author of Not Tonight – I Have A Headache. A board-certified neurologist specializing in the prevention and treatment of neurological diseases, especially headache, stroke and epilepsy, Dr. Singh is the Founder and President of the Beverly Hills Headache Institute. nottonightihaveaheadache.com/home.


    And when was the last time you laughed – or cried? "Suppressing emotions is what we're told to do, at work, at school, in public places…we become masters at being composed." Dr. Singh's blog explores laughter – why we do and don't laugh, and why we should more often.
