Ep. 10 - The Limitless Sky - A Guided Meditation
Today, we return to the most essential practice of life: the art of meditation, that we may know the truth of who we are, before descriptions and conceptions are built. With our attention on the spacious awareness that all thoughts arise in, the alive nature of this very moment becomes self-evident. We realize the true freedom and peace is already inherent in this very moment. Music in this episode: Alkor, "The Background" Music provided by Kahvi.org and Scene.org

Ep. 9 - Building Bridges or Deepening Divides
Includes excerpts from Jordan Peterson & Stephen Fry. In this episode, we consider how contentiously held points of view can contribute to the increasing polarization of our societies. There’s probably many of you out there who are noticing the amount of division in the world today, the fanning of flames apparent on mass media news, as well as on social media feeds. Maybe you’ve been concerned by some of what you’ve seen as well. I would rather see us building bridges than deepening these divides, so in this episode we we explore how we might stand independently and observe as impartially as we are able, both sides of the story, and what’s contributing to this divide. With hope and a bit of consideration, we may see beyond the labels and over-generalizing group distinctions to which we can all fall prey.

Ep. 8 - Bruce Lee & J.K. - Truth is a Pathless Land
In this episode, we explore how the great martial artist, Bruce Lee, was inspired by the writings of J. Krishnamurti. As perhaps the most well-known martial artist the world has ever known, Bruce Lee is credited not only with being instrumental in the popularization of Martial Arts in the West, but with being one of the main influences for the formation of Mixed Martial Arts as it exists today. From interviews of those closest to him, we learn how the writings of J. Krishnamurti were integral to Lee's formation of his Way of No Way philosophy.

Ep. 6 - The Direct Path - A Guided Self-Inquiry Meditation
For today’s guided meditation we will practice Self-Inquiry. This technique, also known as the Direct Path, is part of the Advaita-Vedanta non-dual tradition, and was perhaps most clearly expressed by Ramana Maharshi, whose suggested the simple asking of the question, “Who am I?” In describing Self-Inquiry, Ramana once said, “To inquire Who am I is a long liberation, to keep the mind constantly turned within and to inquire thus, in itself is the Atma Vichara of Self-Inquiry.” In this approach to meditation, we are keeping awareness self-directed, but with a slight tweak, we aren’t just being of the sights, sounds, sensations as they’re coming in, we are being aware of awareness itself, while inquiring into who is having this experience. This is the practice of self-inquiry.

Ep. 5 - The Potential that Still Exists - Ramana & Krishnamurti
"The recognition of self-transcendence as a stage of human potential beyond self-actualization presents us with a paradoxical solution to the greatest problems humanity faces. It presents us with a way that agrees with that old adage, to change the world, we must first change ourselves. But how to do that? How does one realize self-transcendence? This question sets us up to begin our exploration into the practice of self-inquiry, a technique for examining one’s own nature, which is accomplished through the turning of attention inward, to the sense of being itself."

Ep. 3 - Maslow's Missing Piece
In this episode we cover the most integral, yet surprisingly unknown aspect of Abraham Maslow's model for human motivation, most commonly known as the Hierarchy of Needs. Quite intriguingly, there is a stage of human development that goes AFTER Self-Actualization, that is missing from most textbooks and common depictions, and it is INCREDIBLY profound! This highest level of human potential was only added in the final year before Maslow's death. And this will be key to the podcast going forward. This is our first in-depth, pro-quality podcast, and it sets the stage for everything that is to come, so don't miss out on this one! Feel free to share the episode and share your applause (which you can do through the AnchorFM Radio app). You can also share your own responses, questions and comments to this episode through Anchor by calling in to the show! Also, look us up on Patreon under "Actualization Station Podcast" if you would like to support the show! Thanks for listening!

Ep. 2 - What One Can Be, They Must Be
In this episode we discuss "Just What is Self-Actualization?" We'll take a look at Abraham Maslow's model of the motivation for self-transcendence in human beings: Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, which outlines the stages by which individuals may come to Self-Realization and Self-Actualization. Next episode will continue exploring Maslow's model to more fully understand its stages, and why the final step, Self-Transcendence is missing from most publications. Stay tuned.
