"twenty percent" Discussed on 10% Happier with Dan Harris

"Level up their ability to live mindfully. You'll get to eavesdrop on people getting real about the challenges all of us face. I am going to work every day with my mind and chaos. Every day I am getting up and trying the best I can and every night I go to bed feeling like I failed. I'm just waiting for the next bad thing to happen. It feels like I'm afraid of everything. And you'll hear how through meditation, those challenges are transformed. I feel just incredible lightness, like a welling up of joy. It was like I had this permission to enjoy it. All of me is welcome. I have good intentions. Like I want to do good in the world. I'm going to forgive myself. So I can be happy. I might not be a jerk for the rest of my life. What we experience on the inside isn't personal, it's universal. So seeing how someone else goes from stuck to unstuck can be a template for your own breakthrough. In fact, meditation teachers go out of their way to give students this opportunity. And it's my favorite part of my job. I'm here to help you see what's actually possible for you. I want to push you to take a kind and unintimidated look at what gets in your way and embrace the imperfect. And together, we'll have fun with the messy stuff that makes us all human. I haven't done that session with the meditation teacher, but I started virtual therapy this year. Okay, well, you don't have to tell me about your mother if you don't want to. The good thing about meditation is simple. But unfortunate thing is that it's not easy. A simple but not easy describes my experience. Yes. Yo, that's it. So that it's less about how much of this can you endure and much more about how much do you just want to do it? I couldn't have.

"So there's podcast tab that's got A-okay show I heard of from a friend called 10% happier. But in fact, you can find this show 20% happier. And if you get bored, you eventually can take a listen to that other show. I don't know who the host is. I mean, if you're going to pick one show, do the math. That's right. That's right. It's our most statistically effective podcast. I just want to say to the listeners, I have had a chance to listen to many clips of the show, many even more clips than you've just had a chance to listen to. And I know Matthew for a long time. And I know that people were making this show including Marissa and Kimi who were two of the producers. And it's going to be excellent. So I really strongly encourage everybody to check it out. Also want to say, well, Matthew's still here that if you're in the TPH universe, check out our guided meditations and our challenges we're increasingly doing, you're going to see more and more of Matthew on those challenges and right here in the podcast. So that's good news. And I encourage you to keep tuning into what we do because I can promise you more Matthew less Dan. Matthew, thank you. You did phenomenal job with this interview and I really appreciate it. Yeah. My pleasure and I'll see you around. For better or worse, you will. Thanks, Dan. Thank you. Thanks again to Matthew. Love that guy. To listen to 20% happier, Matthews new show, download the 10% happier app wherever you get your apps open it up and tap on the podcasts, tab at the bottom of your screen. By the way, before we go, let's listen to a trailer that we put together for the 10% happier show. Here it is. What up? I'm Matthew Hepburn. When I tell people I'm a meditation teacher, I get asked a lot of the same questions. Can I meditate lying down? Yes. What if I have an itch? Go ahead, scratch it. If I sit for long enough, can I transcend space and time? Time, yes, but not space. But enough about them. Let's talk about you. If you're a fan of 10% happier, you could probably answer a lot of these questions yourself. But my hunch is that despite everything you know about meditation, there's still parts of your life that feel anything but mindful. It's time to change that. Together, we're going to take the insights you get from Dan Harris..

"About that. I think, you know, this is, this is part of our human inheritance. All of us are living through the experience of fear. On a day to day basis, I can say to you, Dan, I've been it's been strange in some ways, but over the last several years of my life becoming more established as a meditation teacher, I'm brushing shoulders with other meditation teachers around and I haven't met anybody that I would say does not experience fear anymore. And so it's important, you know to say to your questions, Michael and I are the only people who experience this that really deep baseline level. One of the things that I love in this clip, you know, as I listen, I hear a pretty experienced meditation practitioner. Michael is immediately naming, I notice it fear is that the baseline of a lot of these things. In fact, I see a lot of hopelessness. Hopelessness is a really unfortunate one to get caught up in, you know, it can come up. But when I get caught up in it, that's really problematic. When we start to be unafraid to name and recognize the way that these very difficult emotions and experiences come up in our lives, then all of a sudden we have the power to actually establish a relationship with them that doesn't feel consumed by them. And that's probably one of the most beneficial things that IFS does. I don't know it well but many of my Friends are either IFS therapists or have done the therapy, but to have practice in naming some of these deep core elements that drive us that drive our unconscious behavior gives us some agency in how we relate to them. One last question I want to ask you here. I worry a little bit. I mean, it's been so cool to listen to these clips as I said before to kind of mindfully eavesdrop on this relationship between a teacher and a student, I do worry a little bit that people might have gotten to this point in the show and think, well, you know, it's hard to find a meditation teacher. I don't even know where to begin. So is this just some big teas where I can't actually follow through on it? What would you say to anybody who might be having those thoughts? Well, what I would say is that I felt like I struggled to build relationships with meditation teachers in my meditation practice. And I was just able to connect with people who I was meeting on retreat and get some guidance from them. Eventually I did build some relationships with meditation teachers, but one of the most beneficial things for me was actually meeting in small groups with a group of students and one meditation teacher. And hearing how the teacher would respond to each different person. And that's what I do now. In fact, I often create the opportunity for my students to meet me in a group. And they love being able to hear how I'm responding to each different person's question or life situation because we can all relate to it. None of us have any emotion that no one else has ever experienced before. And so it's really what I'm hoping to do on this show is to give people essentially the opportunity to sit and listen in to a dialog between other people and a meditation teacher because all of what we talk about is universal. There's nothing that we talk about that's so personal to one person that it's not relevant to the rest of us. And Michael talks about fear and you're like, oh yeah, that sounds exactly right to me. Said talks about the pressures of work situation where it feels like you can't open up and feel vulnerable. How many people can relate to that? And so what I hope is that if you can listen to people who are sincerely practicing, listen to people who are living an average everyday life talking to a meditation teacher if you can't find a meditation teacher yourself, it's going to be the next best thing at the very least. And well, I got to say that it's been a pleasure to have this conversation with you Dan and I hope that your relationship with Joseph does continue to translate into the developments that I have seen in the way that you show up in your life, you know, being able to name your own foibles and living more and more and more with a deep integrity that it just continues to flourish. And you're going to keep making this show and making the rest of this stuff that we're working on. And that's I think a real result that comes out of that inspiration and that dedication. And also, if it wasn't for all that work, and you're on Joseph's friendship, I'd be working for some other company. So this is part of my paycheck too. So please keep it going. So huge loss for headspace. You know, I love that comment you just made both because it's a very I take it as a compliment and I appreciate it, but I also love how it's like kind of slick and that keep doing this work Harris because I have a vested interest in you being less of a pain in the ass, which you do and I think it's a fair thing to say, even if you it's a compliment, it's a compliment and it's an encouragement. Yes, exactly. Exactly. Well, I take it in the spirit in which I believe it was intended. And where can we hear this show? You can hear this show on my proprietary app called Matthew Hepburn's 100% happy. You can hear this show right in the 10% happier app..

"First place? Such a good question. Yes, I want to say, I really respect your bringing this to this session because there are so many different modes in our life that we have of struggling and suffering. And some are big, you know, you talked about having this real serious fear, you know, over the past year. And they're big and obvious. But many are actually subtle and it's like the suffering of a thousand paper cuts. And yes. Yes. And if they could be drastically shifted, our quality of life our sense of freedom and ease and well-being would feel radically different because it's like these little ways in which we resist life or we fight with things or we struggle, the fills in all these little nooks and crannies. So this is an area that I think will be one that if you are exploring in your meditation practice and start to gain some ground and wisdom and compassion in a sense of freedom, it's really going to yield some serious dividends. I get it. Can you say more about that? What do you pointing to for Harriet that we could all apply in our own lives in those situations where we're just like, I don't want to do this. Well, we're actually just a weird just kicking off the conversation. That was basically a real cliffhanger there. Because you didn't get to hear me say anything except while the potential that's in this question. And I think it's probably it might be a little cavalier of me as a meditation teacher to tell Harriet or a broad number of people like the listeners here. Today, this is how you approach all the little moments of resistance to life that can show up. The first thing that I did with Harriet was really respect that this is going to be one of the most meaningful investigations that she can make as a meditation practitioner, not how can I be less stressed at work, not how can I overcome my habit to overeat or how can I stop my addiction to scrolling on Instagram, but in all the little ways that I feel like I don't want to deal with whatever present moment is showing up. How do I respond to that? And most people don't even get to the point of asking that question. And the answer will start with bringing our attention to that exact area. And most serious meditation practitioners will get here. We talk in the Buddhist contemplative tradition about three types of duca duca the word that's often translated as suffering, but could also be translated as dissatisfactory Ness or struggle or stress. And one of these types of duca duca, which is the pain and difficulty of just things that are unpleasant and not easy to like. So physical pain or terrible smells, right? That's dukkah dukh. And the second type, it's talked about as we pari nama duca, which is, I've heard sometimes translated as the duke of seasonality that that which is pleasing comes to an end. Our favorite show has a series finale and now we've got to find a new show. The middle class American listeners that you may have, right? But anything that has seasonality, whether it's a period of time in our life, our health declines over time. But we probably nama duca is the stress that dissatisfaction, the challenge and the difficulty that things don't last. And that constantly things are changing. The third is Sankara duca. Which is a little bit more difficult to describe and it is the fact that in every moment nothing is even stable for a second. Sometimes I've heard teachers talk about it. It's the duke of entropy. That there is a fundamental instability to every moment of human existence. And much of our human struggles are just in resistance to any of these three levels. But those three levels go quite deep. And if we start to pay attention to any degree that we're struggling with anything from the bad smell to the loss of something that we love, but even to just the fact that we've got to keep up with the constantly shifting sands of the present moment. When we start to pay attention to those struggles and see, how can I not resist this anymore? What might it be like actually to live in harmony with this? That opens a potential for non conflict with life that is way deeper than we might have ever imagined. And so as I hear, Harriet asking this question, I hear a student that's on the cusp of some real potential depth. And so the place that I start as a teacher is commending her exploration and saying, hey, this rabbit hole goes pretty deep. And it can get quite profound. And so this is a place for you to dig into. It reminds me of another expression from the aforementioned Joseph Goldstein, which is he's got all these little Josef isms. A little phrases he uses. And one of them is struggle as a feedback. Noticing when you're struggling or resisting whatever's happening right now. And that should be a little bell to wake you up. That there's something you need to be mindful of. That resonate for you. It resonates for me so much. It's like it's a perfect Arctic. I can't even add anything onto that, but it's, you know, I've actually heard mutual friend colleague of ours, Jeff Warren talk about one of his favorite ways to meditate is just simply to pay attention to if there's any resistance of any kind and just try and open. And that's like a formal meditation practice that's built on that same sensibility that Joseph is talking about. And so it's one of the things that as we develop a true love for contemplative practice. And we see the true potential for a sense of ease and freedom at any moment in life. This is one of the things that all of us become really attuned to us. If I just notice any type of struggle.

"There are, of course, other stressors, including marriage and parenting and Molly talks about that in the next clip. The practice of gratitude starts to train us to look for things to be grateful for. And so it's a really beautiful and powerful practice to do in your relationship. And but I'm so curious about you playing with the whole a whole nother thing on the side. I wonder what in your life routine with your husband? What are the times of day that happen at least a handful of times a week where you feel like you're you don't have a bunch of a bunch of pressure on you? And you're around each other. And you can be casual and relatively at ease. Is there any times like that that come to mind for you? Those times are sadly scarce because two full-time working parents is no joke. But I actually want to suggest that you make him the object of your meditation for like 60 a 120 seconds at a time. And so you make him the bird calls that you're listening to in the morning. And you don't let him know. It's like a secret, you know, undercover practice that you're going to do. And you in the mornings go from there being nature around that you're not tuned into it all to the moment when you close your eyes and all of a sudden it comes alive and you're paying attention to it in a different way. And find a time where he's like washing a dish and you can take 60 seconds in the kitchen and maybe you're interacting a little, but really under under cover, you're just seeing if you can see this person as like a phenomenon. Like, if you looked out over the whole globe, right? There's like geysers shooting off. There's like trees losing their leaves. There's animals, you know, drinking water, and there's this guy who's like washing this mug. And I think that there's gonna be something that happens that bridges some of the qualities that you're experiencing in your daily morning meditation and brings them right into your home and life in relationship. That's very interesting thought. I've never considered making a person object of my meditation, but it's very interesting because what you're asking me to do is what I naturally do for my daughter because she is a phenomenon my home. But so is my husband. I just don't think of him in that way anymore. Yeah, we just forget, you know, you've seen him, you know, put on his shoes, so many freaking times. It doesn't seem to be anything.

"That's that is something that I want for myself. I want to be able to strike that balance. A million questions here, but I do want to point out one thing that some listeners will have picked up on, which is that you guys are not talking at least not specifically about meditation there. No, we're talking about what it means to live a more meditative life. The more that you meditate, the more that your relationship to life changes, the more that when things happen that are difficult, you actually don't have the impulse to completely shut that down. You actually want to be attuned to how it feels when somebody says something to you that's off, right? It's different and doesn't feel quite right. And that attunement will clarify how you interact with that person in the next few moments. If you shut it down and just keep moving, you don't learn from that moment in that relationship as a thoroughly as you might when you are more open aware, clear minded and attuned. And so as we meditate, we live in a more meditative way. And so when students are coming to talk to me, sometimes we're talking about what's happening when you're sitting down with your eyes closed. But most of the time, we're just talking about life. And how to live life in a way that's much more aligned with what we're learning through our meditation practice. Let's talk about work. I know you have to hurl yourself into the lotus position every time you and I are in a meeting together because I'm so stressful, sort of stress inducing, but there are people out there who are worse and many people listening to the show may feel like they're working in an environment where it would be dangerous to be more mindful more sensitive more open, more compassionate in the workplace because dog eat dog. What would you say to people like that? You probably if you're in a workplace like that, you know how to move strategically in political ways in your organization, probably. I say that as somebody who has had to do that. And what I would say is you employ your development in mindfulness or your spiritual development, you employ that strategically as well. And so you know the relationships at your work that feel the most threatened by a steep power imbalance and where there's a personality clash. And that's probably not the place to try the cutting edge of the areas of living in a beautiful mindful way that you're not so familiar with and haven't developed a really strong ground. And that's maybe an area to just trust the professional skills that you've developed up to this point to be able to navigate the conversation with tact. And there are other places when maybe you are responding to an email where you've got a little bit more space. And you can say, okay, let me stop. Let me slow down before I fire this response off and actually see if what I'm about to write is really in line with how I want to speak in the impact that I want to have in the world and just get quiet for a moment. And those little moments that you take in the areas that feel safe are actually going to snowball, those little moments are going to snowball and that you're going to find more moments where we actually want to work in line with who you are and your values and work in integrity. And the more that you do that, in fact, from my own experience, people are drawn to you because even in very toxic work environments, people wish that they could be clearly anchored in who they are and their deepest values. And if they see that somebody is bullying folks at work and that there's a person who can't be bullied, that's really inspiring. I have many moments in my own history at work of through my own bravery that's been developed in my meditation practice, being willing to give really difficult feedback to people who were a lot higher up on the ladder than I was. And I don't know that I could have done it in a way that would have been so skillful without my meditation practice, but the outcome was that both that person, but also people laterally to me were very appreciative of being able to be brave and to speak up. And so, you know, our meditation practice doesn't just make us soft and susceptible to being caught up in our feelings when we're at work. It also makes us more attuned to when something's not going right. And we actually need to speak up. And all of those outcomes of meditation practice don't just benefit us, but they improve our workplace in general for the people alongside us. Above us below us. What is the mechanism by which meditation might boost our bravery quotient? Well, I think the number one thing is that bravery is just being willing to feel fear and take action. And through meditation,.

"Of the things that I heard you say there was that used the word that you felt like you failed because you weren't able to get yourself to feel better and get back into that headspace. And I could hear as I listened to you that you were employing rain as a tool as a means to try to feel different than you were feeling in the moment. And that is the one thing that will break any meditative tool. No. Okay, continue unpack for me, please. So there's a really common, maybe one of the most common phenomena for human beings every day we're swinging back and forth between experiences that we like and experiences we don't like and some experiences that we don't really care about very much, right? And it is so natural for us and incredibly common to want to have more of the experiences that we like, Gemma not in the car and feeling good. Want more of that. And less of the experiences we don't like. Super complex intense family relationship that feels unresolved and that I'm not too happy with less of that, please. Is that track for you? Yeah, yeah, yeah, that is. That makes a lot of sense and it's pretty reorienting. It's like how human, right? This is what we all do. I love that clip. And it reminds me of a lesson I had to learn and still have to learn all the time. Which is that meditation isn't about feeling a certain way. It is about feeling whatever you're feeling, clearly, so that your emotions, feelings, thoughts urges, et cetera, aren't owning you all the time. I mean, this is, I think something that we all have to learn again and again. And it's a subtle shift in attitude and like I said to Jacqueline in this moment, right? It's like how human. We hear that meditation is supposed to reduce stress. So then we feel stressed and we try and meditation. So we don't feel stressed anymore. I mean, that seems like pretty straightforward. That's how most people go about it. It's how most people do go about it. But the trouble is that meditation instead of being a tool in our hand that we can use to and this is going to be a strange mixed metaphor. I can feel it already. It's going to be two in our hand, we can use to become more connected and aware of our present moment experience. It turns from a tool to a weapon and we use it to fight the present moment experience that we don't want to have. And as soon as that happens, it starts to lose all its power and its function, unfortunately. And all the meditation techniques that have worked so well for us in the past seem to come up short. And we're stuck. Usually just adding fuel to the fire of whatever difficult experience we're going through. But you're asking us to overcome millennia of evolution here where we are sort of reflexively going for the pleasant stuff, recoiling in the face of the unpleasant stuff and numbing out in the face of anything we find neutral. Those are the three habitual responses. You're calling for us to do this radical move of just like hanging out with whatever's there. How do we learn how to do that on the regular? You know, it's actually I was having a conversation with another student of mine in one on one conversation. And he said something that really cracked me up. And he was encapsulating his entire understanding up to this point of meditation practice. And he said, you know what I really understand that I'm doing with all of this is moment by moment and basically just giving a big FU to evolution. And he said, I'm taking it a moment at a time, and I'm saying, I'm not going to follow the evolutionary response to whatever the present stimuli is. So if it's an email that feels threatening, I'm not going to go caveman saber toothed Tiger on this thing. And I'm just going to take that one moment and see if I can connect with a sense of one agency to make a choice in how I respond and two my core values. What matters to me the most, how I actually want to show up in the world. And so, you know, the answer to your question is you can't just flip off any of the either culturally ingrained habits or evolutionarily inherited habits that you may have developed. But you can take it a single moment at a time. And try to have a different relationship to experience than the inner urge tells you that you should have. Well, said, respond not react. It's my the only meditation cliche I actually like as I have said before if I wasn't so afraid of pain, I would get a tattoo somewhere on my body. Said he's the star of this next clip. Can you can you give us a little context before we listen? Well, this conversation, you'll hear, I think really, it's a personal note with me. I'll just say something, you know, about why I actually to start. When I was getting really heavy into meditation practice studying Buddhism and I wanted to spend more and more and more time studying intensively on retreat and less time on the other things in my life. There was a point at which probably I would have run off and joined a monastery, you know, shaved my head, put on robes and not come back. There was a point where I was really, I had that orientation. And a handful of my close friends did exactly that. And some of them are still in robes to this day. And I was in a different life situation. I was one of those statistics that left college just after the financial explosion in 2008. And I graduated with over 6 figures of student debt. And so I spent this period of time where I was falling in love with Dharma practice and wanting to spend all my time on retreat. And needing to hold down a job or multiple jobs in order to make payments on all my privately held student loans..

"Questions about the difference between therapy and working with the meditation teacher, but I'm gonna let those flow out of the clips we're gonna hear. So let's actually let's dive in and start listening to some of these clips. The first one is this first bit of eavesdropping we get to do here is on a conversation between you and a student named Jack Willem. Can you give us some context before we actually listen? Okay, so in this clip, Jacqueline's telling me about a moment where she tried to use her budding meditation practice to help her in a pinch. She was riding in the car with her boyfriend and got a really difficult phone call from a family member who she has a somewhat contentious relationship with. And she tried to use a technique called rain. This is the acronym RAI N and this is a meditation technique that was developed, I believe by Michelle MacDonald, the meditation teacher and has been made very broadly popular by Tara brach. And so Jacqueline is explaining to me what happened as she's tried to use this technique rain and it doesn't seem to have worked so well for her. And just to say, rain stands for recognize allow investigate and N can either be non identification or nurture, I believe. And so it's a little checklist. You can run through in the midst of some sort of emotional storm. One.

"You know, he's one of the founding teachers of the 10% app your app and I've been able to, you know, and he just spent the weekend at our House. So I know him and I get to really watch him behave in many different contexts. And it's enormously faith inducing small F faith, you know, just not necessarily faith in anything you can't prove. But confidence inspiring to because he's never let me down. I'm not saying he's a perfect human being. He actually has lots of foibles and he owns them. But that's part of the never letting me down. You know, he doesn't pretend to be anything he's not. He, he really is pretty remarkable person. Though, and watching him, you know, behave over all these years. It gives me a lot of confidence that the practice isn't pointless. Now, granted, he's done it at a dosage that most of us are not going to achieve. He's been doing it for 55 years and spends three months every year in silent meditation. And so that's a pretty high dosage. But so I may not achieve Joseph levels of personal integrity. Exquisiteness in my communications, et cetera, et cetera. I'm going to screw up a lot more than he does. But to know that I can put myself on that spectrum on that trajectory is really, gives me a lot of confidence that I, you know, when I sit down on a cushion, I'm not wasting my time. So one last question before we dive into the clips. And again, you're really going to hear these sessions, which we've never done on the show before, so I'm excited for that. What's the difference between the type of work you do with your own meditation teachers and therapy? Well, you know, what I would say, the difference is, is that in meditation, like I said earlier the primary, the active ingredient in the medicine is your relationship to life. And particularly is what you do when you're meditating. And in therapy, the active ingredient in what is therapeutic in therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client in the midst of the session. And so when a meditation student comes to talk to me, I'm like a coach that's talking to them in the locker room after the game. And I'm going to say, you know, get in there and try this next time and watch out for that. And in therapy, and I only know this from the client side. But I actually am a strong believer in the benefits of western psychotherapy on its own, but also as a supplement to contemplative practice. And in therapy, the dialog and the relationship in many modalities of therapy, particularly the psychodynamic modes, that's the medicine. And so you don't need to be leaving the therapy session and doing a meditation practice outside of it. There's some psychotherapy modes like CBT and others where you have a whole set of exercises that you are doing outside the therapy. But these are some of the ways that it's different. And one of the things that I joke about with my students is that when they come to see me, they don't have to rehash their life narrative. They don't have to tell me about their mom. They don't have to tell me about their family history. What we're looking at is their relationship to life here and now in immediacy, not trying to understand what's happened in the past and how that affects this moment, but trying to understand what's our relationship to the present moment and how that affects this moment and future moments..

"You'll get to listen in on intimate conversations between Matthew and people just like you recognize file meditators because listening in on real people working through real challenges can directly benefit you. As you know here on this show, I talked to meditation teachers, scientists, psychologists, and the occasional celebrity. But for many years, many of you have asked that we focus on regular people, too. So that is what Matthew is going to be doing on his new show, which is out today inside the 10% happier app. So we'll get started with this episode, the special episode with Matthew right after this. Matthew Hepburn, my friend and colleague welcome to the show. Dan Harris, my new nemesis, old friend. Wait, the nemesis is new? Haven't I been your Newman for a long time? Oh, I mean, I haven't been out about it. But now officially, we're making it public. Might as well do it in front of the largest possible audience. That's right. There are larger audiences than just your show Dan. You know that. Oh, wow. It's just shots fired. I like this is gonna go well. As you know, verbal abuse is my love language, so you're in a very safe place for this. This is why we love each other so much. The only thing I resent is that you're better at it than I am. And you're better at meditation than I am. So let me ask you about that. I'm just curious before we get into these amazing audio clips that I'm excited for people to hear. Can you just give us a brief little bio of Matthew Hepburn of how did you get into meditation? How did you become a meditation teacher? Yeah, well, it's interesting because when I think about this question, I can pick anywhere in my life as the place to start, you know, I could start as I was just a very little kid and talk about my parents and the values that they had and how those things ended up contributing to where I am today. It's kind of an interesting story to have to tell, but, you know, if I were going to tell it to you today in a way that maybe is somewhat succinct and also represents some of my own path, I would say that when I was a young adult and the first year that I got to college, I felt like it was kind of a big brave and scary world out there. I felt like none of the adults knew anything that was going on that I was sorely looking for mentors or people that I could trust to give me a clear sense of how to live well in the world. And that I didn't have a clear indication a clear read on where I could take my cues on how to live a human life well. And that happened at the same time as I was going through a major major identity crisis. I had known myself to be first and foremost a performance jazz pianist. And that's what I had gone to school on a scholarship for. And that identity was totally falling apart from me and I was embroiled in a lot of self criticism and self hatred that can show up for kids who are going to art school. And I was looking for a new path and a new identity in the world. And so at the same time that I was having some major grief about the loss of my plans for my future, the loss of the elements of my own positive self regard that I had relied on to help me feel good about how I moved through the world and who I was. At the same time I was reading and listening to anything that I could get my hands on that could teach me about what other human beings before me had learned about how to live well. And so one of the things that I ran into was Buddhist teachings. I think the first thing I read was Herman Hess's Siddhartha. You know, I was a kid. It was like 19 years old. It was a really kind of tender a new time in my life. And so for me, it was a very slow progression between that point and time where I was just getting introduced to these ideas that it was possible to look at your own interiority to live a contemplative life to make the subjective your primary interest and see how you're living and to learn from it and to build a new relationship to life. And it's been a long road from to now. And it was a slow waiting in. I started by meditating every once in a while. Every, you know, a couple weeks or something like that, eventually I started meditating for 5 minutes at a time every day. And slowly, but surely, along the way, every single thing that I learned seemed to come out useful in the proving ground of my own experimentation. And the more that I found that the meditation techniques I was trying were useful, the more time I invested in it. And it took quite some time, but eventually I decided to make a lot of sacrifices in my life. Leave jobs so that I could sit long retreats and things like that. And one thing led to another. And now you just recently graduated from the insight meditation society, teacher training program. Yeah, I'm just coming out of this four year training program to train retreat teachers. And while I've been teaching meditation for the last decade, I'm a student first. And I'm really just kind of beginning my life and learning how to teach meditation. And learning from my mentors about how to do it as best I can. When it comes to the training of.

"Get a chance to listen in on a process that rarely if ever gets aired publicly. Let me step back for a second. A big question many of you may have is, okay, I'm meditating or attempting to regularly meditate, but how do I make it relevant to my actual life? On its own, the practice can for some of us at some times feel a little dumb. I'm watching my breath and so what? This is why having a meditation teacher can be so helpful to remind us why we're doing this thing, or again, why we're attempting to regularly do this thing. But of course, not everybody's lucky or resourceful enough to have a relationship with a meditation teacher. And some of you may feel like even if I did come face to face with a meditation teacher, what would I even ask? There's a cool thing that happens on meditation retreats. Another thing that not everybody will have the luck or gumption to do. Teachers on retreats often hold group sessions where you get a chance to listen in on the questions that the other meditators have. This can be super helpful because you hear questions you might not have thought to ask or because you hear that other people are struggling with the same stuff you're struggling with. Today, on this episode, we're going to give you a version of that. You're going to hear audio clips of real students talking to a real meditation teacher about real-life issues. Issues in their meditation practice and issues related to how to apply meditation to everyday life. And then after each of these little clips, the teacher and I will take a deep dive into the issues that arise in the clips. Said teacher is Matthew Hepburn. For those of you who are users of the 10% happier app, you probably know Matthew as the guy who helps you fall asleep. I'm not being facetious, Matthew has one of the most popular sleep meditations in the app. I promise though this conversation is anything but sleepy, Matthew is an ace. He has spent the last decade teaching meditation in schools, prisons and meditation centers all over the country. He is an incredibly skilled wise and very funny teacher and human being. I can say all of this with some real authority because I have worked alongside Matthew for many, many years at the 10% happier app where he's a staffer and a stalwart on our content team. In this episode, we cover some fascinating issues, including how meditation can make you braver at work undercover practices you can do with your spouse or partner, how to find meaning in everyday annoyances, how to handle fear and the one thing that will break any meditation practice. Before we dive in, I do want to point out something very, very cool. The clips you're going to be hearing have been called from a brand new podcast hosted by Matthew. This new show, which is exclusive to the 10% happier app is called 20% happier. Yes, you heard that correctly. Matthew's going to be taking all of the insights you get from this show, my show and doubling them. As if I wasn't going to be stuck with math jokes for the rest of my life already, having written a book called 10% happier I am now. Doubling.

Tired of robocalls? The FCC is still trying to stop them

"The us about twenty percent of calls to cell phones and forty percent to landlines are robocalls many of them scams and tomorrow is the deadline for voice service providers including some phone companies to show the federal communications commission. What steps. they're taking to stop robocalls. Brad reeves is a professor of computer science at north carolina state university. He said the fcc is telling these companies to be on the lookout for clear signs of fraud for example if your phone company and you have a customer that is sending hundreds of thousands of calls per day but almost none of them get answered. Doesn't necessarily mean you're doing anything illegal but it certainly suspicious and you should be looking into it. So yeah i the fcc has a new system right like technical system that can help weed out the robocalls so the fcc is mandating that all providers either now or within a couple of years implemented set of technical standards called stir and shaken. This is something that changes. How calls are made to add a little token to indicate where the call came from and which provider was responsible for it. So you can think of this kind of like the post office putting a postmark on a stamp. The reason this is important. Is that when you receive a robo call and maybe you call your phone company to complain about it. They have to figure out where that call came from. And before sir shaking it was a laborious process that took days in most cases. Do you think that this is gonna work. I wouldn't bet on it. There are just too many loopholes and ways to bypass the

"Twenty percent discount simply for plying for the card that day. Exactly. Yeah. That was sitting. That was a suggestion. Somebody had made on I think our general discussion board. Did you make that suggestion online? I admit it a tip to you guys. I'm not sure. Okay. You because I saw that. And that was very interesting strategy to not actually end up with that store card. You really don't wanna have. And at the same time get the discount, right? And I I use it to get vantage of purchasing brands that don't allow the merchants to offer discounts. So like certain brands, you know, you have to basically use their discount. So you can kind of take advantage of discounts on top of sales and with Rams that don't allow certain stores to get discounts on their products. And so I'm curious is that something that you've done more than once at a single retailer is at a one time thing you can do. I tried it again at the same retailer swimming. It was a one time only thing, but I'm curious to try it again. All right. Well, keep posting and keep us away.

Twenty percent chance of showers sticking around Friday and Saturday. I can't remember a in may when this happened before what's going on over here. Great. All these showers in the forecast. But it's welcome right. Rather than these hundred degree days that we sometimes have that we will be getting later gonna happen inevitably. It's three twenty. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro Chang. There's more bad news for Boeing the company is back on the defensive after admitting over the weekend that is safety sensor on its troubled seven thirty-seven, max planes didn't work as intended and anger is intensifying because Boeing didn't tell airlines about that until after the first of its planes crashed last October all of that is ratcheting up pressure on Boeing as it tries to get its grounded seven thirty seven max planes back in the air. We're joined now by NPR's Russell Lewis who's been following this part of the story Russell either. So what do we know about the sensor and why it didn't work properly? Well, this is called the angle of attack disagree alert. This plane has to angle of attack sensors one on each side of the nose, and they're designed to tell the flight crew how the plane. Is flying relative to airflow over the wing. If the angle of attack gets too, high the plane's wing can stop flying and enter an era dynamic stall. But the seven seven max had this new flight control system that we've heard about called 'em cast. It would force the nose of the plane down in certain circumstances. And this is what is appear to have happened in the two crashes of the 737 max, and we should remember that those accidents have killed a total of two hundred three hundred and forty six people in. Here's what's new that in two thousand seventeen Boeing learned a few months.

"Just twenty percent of the vehicles. No. No less than twenty percent of the gas in the pipeline or in the pipeline the pipeline with with with with with our energy. And so what that does is your you're it's it's much more feasible. You know, we talk about the economics associated with going with electric Asian in in all of that. I mean, the infrastructure issues are having already in California, you have a long-standing infrastructure of natural gas within all of our states. And so you're able to utilize these assets that are already there in kind of bridge the gap, and then there's a whole nother discussion. I won't take a bar the time, but with the power to gas transition, which there's ways for you to even utilize the benefits they're having the things that's going on the power side from the solar and wind generation at any of that excess capacity to stop being used right now by the greed, you're able to a process collar Letcher electrolysis to convert in pull out the methane from those processes stored our natural gas infrastructure, that's already there. And then whenever you need to be able to fill the gaps and get more power production, and what's being done by the solar wind, then you can use this carbon neutral source for natural gas. So it's kind of a full circle and different things. You can do to truly be more efficient. Yes storage is kind of the ticket. If you can get to the point where we can store too. So then during the day when you use them solar. You can store that natural gas and use it at night. Yes. That's great. Let's talk a little bit about planning new facility projects and all the things that apply to that. Okay. So as Michael touched on, you know, for sustainability standpoint, you know, we've looked to see in the orangey. There's a lot of other things that we look at you know, as a company and when planning new facilities that goes into solar canopies mounted on parking structures rainwater collection, zero scape, software, control LED lighting. So what a different things that. We're doing, you know, cross the board. Also, we can daylight harvesting and motion sensors, these are all.
