The final episode in series one of Where Is My Mind talks about perspective, zooming out, and how meditation helps us reflect on our lives as a bigger picture. Niall meets an astronaut and an artist who reflect on this perspective from the point of view of star gazing and being in outer space, looking back at our lives on the earth below.

Recorded at the #whereismymind live podcast for the Dublin Podcast Festival in the Sugar Club on November 18th. Michael Harding is a man whose writings, work and words have inspired me to understand the true comprehension of emotional transparency, intelligence, literacy and transparency. That vulnerability is an opportunity for growth, yet at the same time recognising the inevitability of pain in the midst of the complexity of the human condition. Perhaps one of his his greatest influences on my life has been witnessing his desire and ability to see beauty and hope in the simplest of things during the hardest of moments. If we had the scientific capacity to clone Stephen Fry, NIall Tobin and Larry David I am pretty sure we would get someone like Michael harding Thanks for listening in guys Please stay subscribed for season 2 of #whereismymind. We are busy production the second series and I really think you are all going to love it. We will also have some deadly live podcast events next year which I can’t wait for.

The lake meditation accompanies episode 5 of Where is my Mind. It is adapted from Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Lake Meditation, and guided by Niall Breslin. Like the mountain meditation, the lake meditation uses nature as a strong visualisation anchor that guides us to present moment awareness. The lakes surface can changes from day to day. It can be calm and clear then choppy and dark. Yet below the surface the lake remains the same. Cradled in the earths crust and teeming with life. A very useful meditation for those looking to find calm and peace. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
