Description

The intention is to awaken, enlighten, enrich, and inspire. Timber Hawkeye, bestselling author of Buddhist Boot Camp and Faithfully Religionless, offers a secular approach to being at peace with the world, both within and around us. As the Dalai Lama says, "Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist, use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are."

Outrospection

Outrospection

2020-11-2109:56

Visibility leads to acceptance. Exposure to diversity opens our eyes first, our minds second, and our hearts third. When we understand and connect with one another, empathy and compassion become the inevitable end results. Let's talk about the problem with the Golden Rule and the importance of balancing introspection with outrospection.  If you find value in these podcast episodes, please show your support with just $1/month through https://Patreon.com/BuddhistBootCamp or make a one-time contribution through https://jemi.app/buddhistbootcamp - Thank you for being a Soldier of Peace in the Army of Love.
The Power of One

The Power of One

2020-11-1205:53

Why do we acknowledge that a single individual can make a big difference in our lives (or in the world), but we rarely credit ourselves for the ability to do the same?
Privilege

Privilege

2020-10-2307:57

Everybody is privileged in at least one way or another, and that's not a bad thing. What is privilege? What is it not? And what can we do with it? 
Accepting Yourself

Accepting Yourself

2020-10-0804:592

Lao Tzu said, "Care what other people think, and you will always be their prisoner." Liberate yourself by getting to know who you are according to you, not anybody else.  If you find value in these podcast episodes, please show your support with just $1/month through https://Patreon.com/BuddhistBootCamp or make a one-time contribution through https://jemi.app/buddhistbootcamp - Thank you for being a Soldier of Peace in the Army of Love.
Physical Contact

Physical Contact

2020-09-2008:28

Do we now live in a world where we have to find non-physical ways to show affection? Let's talk about deeper methods of intimacy like vulnerability and transparency, and use tools like empathy and compassion to connect with one another when a hug isn't an option (and even when it is). 
Negativity Bias

Negativity Bias

2020-09-0806:21

Why do we so easily accept bad news but are reluctant to embrace good news? Maybe enlightenment is not about finding some truth that sets us free, perhaps it’s about recognizing which lies hold us hostage?

Unmet Needs

Unmet Needs

2020-08-2309:02

What if instead of expressing our feelings we explained which of our needs are not being met? This practice requires awareness and vulnerability, but it could put an end to the shame and blame games we play in our relationships. Growth isn't easy, but every step forward brings us more clarity, understanding, and connection. So don't proceed with caution, proceed with curiosity. Good luck!
Intervention

Intervention

2020-08-0606:032

Are you living in line with your values? Do you know what your values are? This month's intervention holds up a mirror for us to look at ourselves and question whether we claim to be one way but act another. It's an invitation to live a congruent life in our integrity, where what we think, what we say, and what we do is all in alignment.

Rude

Rude

2020-07-1707:511

Do you only show the ugliest side of you (the rude, mean, and nasty) to the people you love the most while strangers see the nicest side of you? Is it possible my dysfunctional family cutting people out of their lives left-and-right has a silver lining? Can we be kind to everyone? Even to our family members?

Personal Boundaries

Personal Boundaries

2020-07-0706:431

What you allow is what will continue, and what you put up with is what you end up with, so set your boundaries, communicate them, and stick to them with conviction because if you don't honor your own boundaries, why and how can you expect others to? Be tolerant and accepting, yes, but tolerant does not mean accepting what is harmful. Define what "harmful" means to you, and you'll be one step closer to setting healthy boundaries.
According to Me

According to Me

2020-06-2308:22

The best way to have uncomfortable conversations with family members or friends who don't see the problem or how you perceive them to be part of the problem, and how to avoid finger-pointing so we can have effective discussions rather than arguments.

Sunday Sermon

Sunday Sermon

2020-05-1810:14

God, Prayer, Grace, Mercy, if any of those topics make you uncomfortable, skip this episode; it's a recording of Sunday's sermon at Unity Church, bridging the gap between my upbringing, religion, and Buddhism, in a way to which people of faith can relate.
Priorities

Priorities

2020-05-1208:051

Our actions convey our priorities but we often fail to contemplate the WHY behind people's actions. When you argue with someone, you’re trying to prove WHO is right, but in a discussion, both parties are trying to find out WHAT is right.

My Panic Attack

My Panic Attack

2020-04-2909:15

I am typically calm and collected, so when I experienced a panic attack that triggered serious suicidal thoughts, it was mindfulness, meditation, surrender, and a mantra that brought me back to center. Years ago, I made a commitment to be vulnerable and transparent with all of you, and this was the lowest point in my adult life but I'd be a hack if I kept it from you. This is me. But I'm grateful for the tools with which to work through it all. Your brother, Timber Hawkeye
Losing all hope is freedom? What?! Have a listen to distinguish between faith and hope, and learn to hold all opinions lightly so there's room to accept other people's reality as valid as our own. 
What changes to incorporate and how to remember which ones we want to implement in our lives when this pandemic is over, getting in touch with what (not who) we are grateful for, and helping each other out on this incredible journey we call life.
On March 22, 2020, Timber hosted a live video broadcast Q&A in lieu of in-person events that have been canceled due to travel restrictions and social distancing. There will be a series of these in the coming weeks for people to tune into via YouTube from all over the world. Visit the Buddhist Boot Camp website for upcoming event information and additional details.
Wabi Sabi

Wabi Sabi

2020-03-0905:211

Stop expecting perfection from others, it’s not like you can offer it in return. Consider this a relief from the burden of judgment. Forget the conventional idea of "perfection," and embrace Wabi Sabi instead. Do you find value in these podcast episodes and enjoy them without commercial interruption?

since my waking up, my chamber has grown completely empty. all of the friends and even my family are on such a toxic, abusive level. I had to step away and it's not lonely cuz' I've got my children, but I look forward to a time when I have enriching friendships and wax into the nights on the cosmos around a campfire... for now all I am able to do is distance myself from toxic people as I'm capable, and be the best human I can be.
