In this episode, author, journalist, yoga & mindfulness teacher, and seeker Brad Wetzler unpacks and shares the life lessons he learned on a pilgrimage to Mount Arunachala, the great Shiva mountain in southern India. He discusses his definition of the words "spiritual" and "faith," and he discusses how being humiliated on the mountain led him to see his path in life more clearly, and eventually helped him heal depression and cope with childhood trauma from a near-drowning episode and growing up in an addicted, narcissistic family. Finally, he shares how the powerful Buddhist metta meditation practice helped him heal and grow--and how you can embrace metta too.
