By Jnana B
What makes us human? What is the nature of our happiness and suffering... and where do we rile up the energy to do all of this!? How does awakening unfold on the tri-level of our body/mind/spirit continuum and transfer into society? This podcast is for truth-seekers and those who wish to gain wisdom - not just 'dry, book knowledge'. We cover topics like: how awakening affects us on a societal level in science, art, & economics; Buddhism, Hinduism, & ancient knowledge; plant entheogens; and spiritual practice.

23 - Just Walk! A Guided Meditation
Walking meditation can't get any simpler than "just sitting" Zazen... whether you're on your way to work and a mission -- or you specifically set out to just walk -- these are the basic foundations of walking, noticing, and finding yourself in your experience -- as it is. Om, namaste.

22 - The Cycle of Birth, Death, & Caffeination
Waking up can be tricky business! Why, when we start to awaken, do we backslide instead of flowering fully into that non-dual presence we know is possible? Here, we share what the Buddha found while on his final step into liberation, a few tips about how the mind 'tricks us' from my first-hand experience, and what this spiritual term "ego" is all about. Dive in!

20 - Buddhism is not a Religion!
Buddhism is not a religion... nor a philosophy or a set of rigid values to uphold. Did you know that Buddhist morality is not mandatory but merely sets the stage so that you may awaken easier? With this ease in mind, Buddhism seeks to help liberate all beings from birth and death in THIS lifetime: not in some future perfect situation or in heaven beyond. The Buddha laid a foundation to win at life out of pure compassion. Are you curious?

19 - Building an Ecological House: Part II
As promised, here is what I am personally going to do to change the high-strung city lifestyle I now lead, to integrate the knowledge and awareness I have gained about life. With our rising population and hyper-focus on technology, I believe we need better solutions for our collective conscious future. To respect all of life: people, animals, and the environment are my long-term concerns instead of money, power, fame, stress, and busy-ness. Enjoy, and let me know what you will do if you find inspiration in this episode!

18 - The Economy, Cities, & Our Big Brains: Part I
As the population is projected to reach 10 billion by 2050, our economy will inevitably change: there will be less jobs, more machines and technology taking on human roles, and we will be an evermore intelligent species. What will we do with this changing landscape? Will we go down the same road as the Industrial Revolution, or will we make even wiser choices? Join me to discover what we can do differently from here...

17 - Hinduism is not a Religion: Perspective with Karthik
 In this episode, I speak with a friend who has grown up in India -- the  land of the "Hindus". Where did this term come from? Who gave it to  India's vast population, and what comes with embracing this title?  What's up with the holy books such as the Vedas and Bhagavad Gita, and  is it a polytheistic religion where many gods are necessarily prayed to?  All this will be answered and more in our uplifting interview with  Karthik.

16 - Internet Series: Effects on our Consciousness
A few days ago, I stumbled on a documentary about "Just Eat" and how it's changing the way we order food. We can now sit online and order just about anything without having to move from the house. What repercussions will this and other internet behaviours have on our consciousness, moving forward as interactive human beings? This and more internet topics explored. See my website at https://curiousbodhipodcast.com/podcasts/ for the full article!

15 - Is There Security In The Material?
Can there ever be security in the material forms we surround ourselves with? What about our homes and environment? In this short episode, I ask what you think about our need for fulfillment... please send your comments through to curiousbodhi@zoho.com.

14 - The 8-Fold Path & The 4 Noble Truths
When the Buddha was enlightened under the Bodhi tree, he became aware of the 4 Noble Truths and the 8-Fold Path. Ultimately, he got this beautiful information by his own initiative. If we are willing to take a look at our own conscious experience, we might begin to let go...

13 - Samsara Explained; Getting off the Wheel
Are we living in a "dream"? How do we know, and what are the examples that point to this? What is the true nature of life? I will explain, in this episode, the rationality behind Samsara and what it means to be caught up in The Wheel and one way out...

12 - Going to the Roots of "Being"
Are you a human being or a human doing? What is "being", anyway? In this episode, we go over what being is in all practicality and how you can train yourself to find your own being-ness. After all, every holy scripture points to this very essence, which is fundamental to every living and non-living entity in our universe. So, we might as well get used to it.

11 - Interview with Hans Wilhelm On Our Pre-birth Plan and Reincarnation
In this episode, I talk to a very special guest who has helped uplift humanity through his books, videos, and unique illustrations: best-selling author, Hans Wilhelm. We go through the 'tough' subject of our pre-birth plan and why we decide to incarnate (and reincarnate!) on this planet. Did we have a plan before coming to this life on earth, and did we know what we were in for? What is the purpose of this incarnation in this body? As it has been said... "The truth is simple; the seekers of truth are complex." Find Hans at LIFEexplained.com.

10 - The God Button: Bufo Alvarius
In this emotional interview, I catch up with a friend who came face-to-face with Reality via Bufo Alvarius from the Amazonian jungle. "Bufo", for short, is an altogether transcendent experience for the soul, illuminating the gifts that God bestows on humanity -- lest we forget. It is not a trip nor a hallucination but a short travel in the hands of God, our creator and destroyer -- which vastly changes the life of a person for the better during his waking moments on earth. If you have a Bufo experience you'd like to share, please email me at curiousbodhi@zoho.com.

9 - Manifestation Takes Time, So Keep Going
I recorded this short episode after a long run outdoors, when insights often arise about the nature of life -- what is the difference between recurring thoughts and those of manifestation? When thoughts and feelings, aka "inspiration" about a project arises, I talk about where this comes from and the inevitable endpoint as manifestation. Oh, and email me!

8 - Internet Series: De-Google Yourself!
The internet and Google are a huge part of how we co-create our reality, but I have to stop to wonder... is this the way we want to see ourselves going and interacting on a personal level in the future? The Native Americans say, "look 7 generations ahead of you, and then make action." In this episode, part of a series, I explore the problems of the internet and the ways in which we can get around this as our main tool of communication. For humanity's sake!

7 - Interview with Artist Demi on Italian Politics And Ego Death
In this episode, I talk to artist Gianluca (Demi) who gets straight into what's bugging him about Italian fascism right this very moment. Then we go on to penetrate spirituality from the point-of-view of a free soul living in the city with hopes of a brighter future for us all -- and ego death along with a few other surprises! Welcome to the conversation. Demi's artwork is on www.demiart.co.uk & @gldemi on Instagram.

6 - All People and Phenomena Are Empty!
Inspired by a trip in Paris, I recorded this episode in a teeny hotel room. I deconstruct our tendency to remember ourselves as "separate people" and just how this is created by memory and a very specific "my" viewpoint on a situation. This is applicable to any moment in time, so enjoy!

5 - Interview with Tattooist Jeffrey Segundo on Following Instincts
I interview Jeffrey Segundo, a tattoo artist from Australia who speaks about how hard times can turn into gold from the perspective of the absolute. We met through a series of serendipities, and it was his attraction to our tattoo studio's spiritual vibe that caught his attention (Fifth Dimension Tattoo & Piercing) which is a fascinating reason to choose a job overseas! Jeff covers his background, the law of "I AM", and who he is as a person on this great earth. You can catch Jeff's artwork on Instagram @juxtagram.

3 - Organic & Spontaneous Satsang in London
In this organic Satsang, which means "sacred gathering", we will traverse together to see if we connect on the insights that have been handed my way as of lately. This episode touches on the notions of "nothing" and non-separation; little paradoxes; language; clinging; and even guidance into the ever-present open space of You and what it is to open, open, open up! I even lose my train of thought at one point... that's what happens when you go organic.

2 - Buddhist Methods of Awakening
In this very practical guide to various Buddhist methods of awakening, we will take a brief walk through the Vedas, Zen, Advaita, Theravada, Tantra, and Mahayana to explain what you can pull from these traditions to hone your spiritual practice and bring them into your everyday life.

1 - Introduction: Spirituality is Realistic
Food for every level of awareness, starting right at the beginning: somewhere or nowhere at all. It doesn't matter. Since we're all unique beings in various ages and contexts on this planet, we will all be in different stages of our spiritual development. Don't let that stop you! Dig right in and get into the silly metaphors for a while.
