Susan Piver: The 4 Noble Truths of Love.
Susan Piver is the New York Times best-selling author of 9 books, a speaker, and founder of the largest virtual mindfulness community in the world, The Open Heart Project. She has been featured on Oprah, TODAY, CNN, speaks around the world and leads teachings and retreats on Buddhism, meditation, relationships and the essential practices for a life well-lived.In her most recent book, The Four Noble Truths of Love, she offers a powerful set of tools to reimagine and better navigate long-term, loving relationships in a way that respects each person's individual truth, while making space for a living, evolving container for love.In our podcast conversation this week, Piver shares the eye-opening revelation that brought her to the Four Noble Truths of Love, then walks us through each one. She reveals the genesis of this work, her own 20-year marriage, her struggle with attachment to "what was" and the innately human need to contain and define and preserve it. And, she shares her awakening to how trying to lock something living and breathing and changing into the confines of something simple and clean and certain can only lead to suffering, while the opposite just might lead to freedom and a deepening sense of connection.To watch to Piver's incredible journey from Austin bartender to music industry exec to bestselling author to Shambhala meditation teacher, check out our earlier conversation here.Check out our offerings & partners: Camp Good Life Project – BIG ANNOUNCEMENT - This is the final year of Camp GLP.

We talk about the fact, fiction, history, science and revolutionary clinical studies now underway, mostly from the lens of therapeutic outcomes.This conversation is not a permission-slip to experiment with any of what he talks about, nor an endorsement, so please do not take it as such. Rather, it is a balanced, non-hyperbolic or sensationalized conversation about a category of substances that are now at the cutting-edge of research in the treatment of mental conditions that afflict tens of millions of people.Check out offerings & partners: Camp Good Life Project – Join us for 3 ½ days of connection, discovery, rejuvenation and reinvention and for a limited-time, save $100. Learn more and grab your spot today!BOMBAS - Get 20% off your first order, visit bombas.com/goodlife. Photo Credit Jeannette Montgomery Barron
Rich Roll: On Reckoning and Reinvention
Rich Roll transformed his body and health, losing 50-pounds and becoming an acclaimed plant-powered ultra-endurance athlete. This led to the blockbuster book, Finding Ultra. But, behind the scenes, he was struggling with something else that would eventually bring him, once again, to his knees.While he'd figured out his physical wellbeing, he had also awakened to the fact that his career as a lawyer was deeply unfulfilling. Married, with a wife and four kids, he left the law behind. Now, he had to figure out how to craft a new living. This led to a years-long, often brutally-hard journey that brought him within hours of losing the family home. But, together with his wife, Julie Piatt, they held to their belief that the only way was through.That eventually led to a new vocation as an advocate, speaker, author and podcast producer focusing on healthy-living, plant-powered eating, sustainable food-systems and meaningful living. That journey is still unfolding. And, in today's conversation, we dive into the major points of reckoning, inflection and celebration. This part of his journey is also detailed in a newly updated version of Finding Ultra.Check out offerings & partners: Camp Good Life Project – Join us for 3 ½ days of connection, discovery, rejuvenation and reinvention and for a limited-time, save $100. Learn more and grab your spot today!BOMBAS - Get 20% off your first order, visit bombas.com/goodlife.Ring: Get up to $150 off a Ring of Security Kit when you go to ring.com/GOODLIFE.Kniepp Bath & Body - 15% off your first order at Kneipp.com with code GOODLIFE.

Reinvention, Meditation and Bliss: Light Watkins
Former Gap fashion model, Light Watkins, began yoga and meditation in-between casting calls in New York City during the late nineties. It opened him to a different worldview and set of practices that would change not only the trajectory of his career, but also his path in life. Deepening his practice, traveling and spending time in India and then apprenticing with his Vedic Meditation teacher, Watkins became a full-time Vedic Meditation teacher in 2007. He now travels the world speaking on happiness, mindfulness, inspiration, and meditation. Light’s most recent book, Bliss More: How to Succeed in Meditation Without Really Trying invites people into meditation in a very accessible way.
