Don’t Be A Jerk with Brad Warner

Join us Thursday, July 28th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and Brad Warner. 

Brad Warner
Don’t Be A Jerk: And Other Practical Advice From Japan’s Greatest Zen Master with Brad Warner

BRAD WARNER, bestselling author of books like Sit Down & Shut Up and Hardcore Zen, isn’t your typical Zen master. And his latest book the enclosed advance reading copy of his upcoming new book Don’t Be a Jerk: And Other Practical Advice from Dōgen, Japan’s Greatest Zen Master isn’t your typical book about Buddhism.

The Shōbōgenzō: The True Treasury of the Dharma Eye is a revered 800-year-old Zen Buddhism classic written by a Japanese monk named Eihei Dōgen. However, despite the tremendous respect his teachings have earned over the years, many consider the book difficult to understand and rarely read.

A student of The Shōbōgenzō for thirty years, Warner has referenced Dōgen in the six previous books he’s written about Zen practice. Now, in Don’t Be a Jerk, he presents a radical but reverent paraphrasing of Dōgen’s work for modern times in plainspoken language that’s also entertaining.

Says Warner, “We need Dōgen today — desperately. His philosophy offers us a way out of our continuing battles between the idealistic and the materialistic view. He offers us a Middle Way that shows us we do not have to choose between science and religion.

Join Sandie and Brad Warner as they discuss such issues as:

*   Was Dōgen the First Buddhist Feminist?”
*   You’re Already Enlightened Except You’re Not”
*   Did Dōgen Teach Reincarnation and Does It Even Matter If He Did?
*   And more…

BRAD WARNER is the author of Don’t Be a Jerk and numerous other titles including Sit Down & Shut Up, Hardcore Zen, and Zen Wrapped in Karma Dipped in Chocolate. A Soto Zen priest, he is a punk bassist, filmmaker, Japanese-monster-movie marketer, and popular blogger based in Los Angeles.

It’s a story that is becoming increasingly common: an individual in a quintessentially left-brain profession has an experience that transforms their lives, their outlook, and their occupation.

Belinda J. Womack is a scientist by training, with dual master’s degrees in microbiology and environmental science who was was was called into service by the 12 Archangels while working in a medical university laboratory.  Today, she has an active spiritual counseling practice, working with the 12 Archangels, to support couples, families and individuals with seemingly impossible problems to solve.

According to Belinda, the 12 Archangels of the Central Sun (Soul) of the Universe are all-powerful and all-loving that created Earth, an amazing schoolroom established so that Oneness (ALL THAT IS) can dream a dark dream and experience the reality of fear and the illusion of being separated from the Creator.

Belinda’s new book, Lessons from the 12 Archangels is a treasure chest of channeled angelic wisdom that offers clear strategies for transforming the wounds trapped within the deep subconscious that block us from experiencing positive change.

Join Sandie Sedgbeer and Belinda J. Womack as they discuss how we can change our everyday reality to living on Earth as we do in Heaven, a place and space where, Belinda says, we are conscious of our divinity and the healing power that lives within us.

The Virtual Reality Solution with Luca Bosurgi 

Until now, all the buzz around Virtual Reality has been about its entertainment and gaming applications, and even a bit of meditation. But now for the first time, there’s a Virtual Reality product that actually helps people achieve an emotionally free, high performance, happy life – through a proven psychologically therapeutic self-help technique called The Bosurgi Method™. This process, using guided meditations, releases a person’s co-dependency on outside approval – creating emotional maturity and psychological independence. Co-dependency can take the form of:

*   Low self-esteem, self-judgment and never feeling “enough”
*   Wanting to find one’s happiness, love and approval in others (parents, lovers, spouses, friends, society, etc.)
*   Fearfulness including being afraid of rejection, fear of making life’s big decisions, reluctance to move forward, work life malaise, etc.
*   Addictions and more…

Join Sandie and Luca Bosurgi as they discuss how marrying three of the hottest trends in the world today – virtual reality, self-help and meditation – has led to a breakthrough mind-training sensory experience with a success rate that is consistently more than 95%.

About the Guest Luca Bosurgi

A clinical hypnotherapist, and visionary pioneer in guided imagery for therapeutic health through Virtual Reality; he is a successful investment banker, venture capitalist and member of an elite Italian dynasty. 10 years ago, Bosurgi left behind the financial world to devote himself to his lifelong passion—creating a means to free mankind from redundant mind misery.

Living Sensationally - How Understanding Our Senses Can Transform Our Relationships And Our Life with Prof. Winnie Dunn

Join us Thursday, July 7th, at 4:00PM-PST/7PM-EST on OMTimes Radio, for What’s Going OM? with host Sandie Sedgbeer and guest Prof. Winnie Dunn. 

Prof. Winnie Dunn

We all want to live a satisfying life, but what that means to you may be quite different than what it means to others in your life.

For example, how do you feel when you bite into a pear…wear a feather boa…stand in a noisy auditorium…or walk past a perfume counter in a department store? Some people love the grainy texture of a pear, while others shudder at the idea of this texture in their mouths. Touching a feather boa might feel luxurious and sensual to you, while others will bristle at the idea of all those feathers brushing on the skin. And strong scents or noisy, busy environments will energize some people, and overwhelm others.

Now imagine the tension and stress it could cause to your relationship if your partner needed to wake up to to bright lights, loud music, and the aroma of strong coffee to psyche them up for the day, while you required a slow, calm awakening with silence, dim lighting, and zero environmental stimulation to function properly.

We rarely think about it, but we all have our own pattern of responding to everyday experiences such as these, and they can make or break our day. In her eye-opening book, Living Sensationally: Understanding Your Senses, Prof. Winnie Dunn explains how understanding our sensory profile and those of our children, colleagues and loved ones can not only help us understand our own and others’ behavior and choices but can also help eliminate misunderstandings, tension and stress that may be affecting our relationships at home and work.

Join Sandie and Dr. Dunn as they discuss:
•   The Four Major sensory types – Seeker, a Bystander, and Avoider or a Sensor
•   How to discover your own pattern and those of your friends, children and colleagues and loved ones
•   How to eliminate misunderstanding, anxiety and tension in your relationships with family members, children and colleagues
•   How you can use this information to benefit your business or home life, or to pick the right kind of clothing, job and home and create a more harmonious and satisfying life

Dr. Dunn is Professor and Chair of the Department of Occupational Therapy Education at the University of Kansas. A member of the Academy of Research for the American Occupational Therapy Foundation, she is an internationally known expert for her studies about sensory processing in everyday life. She has published more than 100 research articles, book chapters and books, and has spoken around the world about her work, and is the author/ coauthor of all of the Sensory Profile measures, which capture people’s responses to sensory events in everyday life; these assessments have been translated into dozens of languages and are used for both professional practice and in research programs.

Her eye-opening book Living Sensationally – Understanding Your Senses, has been featured in several magazines including Time magazine, Cosmopolitan, The London Times newspaper, and on Canadian Public Radio.
