When is the last time you said, “I don’t know much about that issue. Tell me more about your thoughts on it?”

Brene Brown asks this question in her latest book Braving The Wilderness, and it truly stopped me in my tracks. I hadn’t taken the time to notice that I expected myself to have an opinion on EVERYTHING, even things I knew little about…

This week’s episode is about Deep Speaking – speaking from a place of authenticity and integrity – rather than simply talking to affirm our ego. The only way to do this is to work with what we hear when we really listen without filtering by
– what we know
– what we believe
– what we understand
– what we have previously said

Mark Nepo reminds us, “speaking deeply has something to do with letting things pass through our heart as they are.”

Join me for today’s dharma talk and guided meditation; this week I invite you to join me in speaking deeply rather than simply talking.
