Welcome to A Congruent Life!

Thank you for your support of A Congruent Life, an interview project sharing inspirational stories of authenticity and happiness.

I’m proud to announce that the A Congruent Life podcast is now available!

To kick things off and celebrate the launch, this week we’re sharing three great conversations:

  • Brian Doyle, a “storycatcher” and award-winning author who shares his reflections about the power of story, humor, and joy, and tells of a surprise casual encounter he had with the Dalai Lama.
  • Christi Bruchok and Tauru Chaw, who are riding a tandem bicycle 16,000 miles from the southern tip of Argentina to the northern tip of Alaska — and just happen to be legally blind.
  • Christine Valters Paintner, an online Abbess, writer, and contemplative who challenges us to ‘receive images’ instead of ‘take pictures,’ and shares profoundly about ‘following the thread,’ pilgrimage, and vulnerability.

Starting next week, we’ll share a new conversation each Wednesday. We have an exciting lineup of interviews ahead! Some of the inspiring people we’ll soon meet include:

  • Bernie Glassman, a world-renowned pioneer in the American Zen movement and founder of the Zen Peacemakers who is serving in socially-engaged projects around the world, and recently co-authored The Dude and the Zen Master with Jeff Bridges.
  • Joe Reilly, a singer, songwriter, and educator who invites us to heal relationships, bring people together, and build community though his joyful and playful music.
  • Timber Hawkeye, who offers a non-sectarian approach to being at peace with the world, and wrote a popular book titled Buddhist Boot Camp to make Buddhist principles simple and accessible.
  • Joel Blunk, a musician, storyteller, and pastor who followed his childhood ambition to play professional football and had an opportunity to play in the NFL, only to find that his journey took an unexpected turn.
  • Julie Dragonfly, who made a conscious break from addictive patterns in her life and is now traveling around the world to share the healing power of sound on a tour called “Sing as I am.”

…and many more to come!
