This week’s show is a very special one, it’s a Lian & Jono Show in which we, Lian Brook-Tyler and Jonathan Wilkinson, go deep on a topic that’s alive for us.
Unless you’ve listened to Jonathan’s previous episodes on this show or are part of one of our programs you’re might not be familiar with Jonathan – who’s actually the other half of Primal Happiness and he’s the man behind the voice you just heard during the podcast intro at the beginning of the show.
In this show, we explored Jonathan’s recent experience of embarking on a vision quest. We explored what a vision quest is, why it’s so beneficial to unplug ourselves from our conditioning and day to day habits, and power of the austerity and challenge.
I’d love to know what YOU think about this week’s show. Let’s carry on the conversation… please leave a comment below.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- There’s such power in choosing away from your usual day to day comfort – consciously choosing to take a break from the norm, challenging the status quo and reclaiming your sovereignty
- The opportunity for experimentation – whether that be not washing, changing your habits of phone use or fasting. And as we said in the show, there’s so many ways we can play with fasting, first and foremost, make sure you’re safe to fast and then find a way of fasting that’s right for you. The key thing with experimentation is creating the space for you to play with different ways of being and doing and discovering what works for you.
- The lost art of boredom – we’re typically very uncomfortable with the idea of boredom and fill our lives with constant opportunities for distraction so there’s no chance of ever feeling bored. The incredible choice that we all have is to allow ourselves the space to be bored. Even allowing ten minutes every day to sit and see what comes up can be so powerful. It constantly blows my mind what comes alive for me in my sessions of this kind. Also, Jonathan and I are planning to run an 11-day challenge (although a little different to what the word challenge might conjure up for you) at the beginning of February, which will be designed to support you around creating this practice. If you’re in our fb group then you’ll see when we launch that challenge – if you’re not already in the group then you can join it now.
