This week’s show is with Dave Burns who is a coach, angel investor, and essayist. With a background in relational work, partnered meditation, mindful business training and classical philosophy, his work today centres around the interplay between ancient wisdom and modern practicality. A very happy husband, he lives in Costa Rica with his wife, in a small town where the jungle meets the sea.
In this show we spoke about personal artistry, how we can bring an energetic of our unique inner embodiment to any practice, how we might discover that, what it feels like. We also spoke about having a personal blueprint and how to distinguish between resistance that shows up with an edge that’s aligned for you vs something that’s scary but not for you.
This was such a fascinating episode… those of you who have been practising artists, musicians or martial artists will find this particularly interesting but I believe it’s incredibly helpful regardless.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- The embodied feel of full attention, intention and purpose and full relaxation is the pose that Dave was describing that we can bring to any practice.
- Understanding your own unique blueprint, including your your artistic essence and your personal traits, will help you to create your life, business and relationships in alignment with it.
- Attuning to the body via all forms of meditation, especially embodied kinds such as ecstatic dance, is one of the most powerful ways to sensitise to how our intuition shows up in our bodies.
- Throwing yourself into practice is ultimately how we discover ourselves and what is for us.
