Zen and the Art of Time Management with Marc Lesser

Episode 17 – Zen and the Art of Time Management with Marc Lesser

ZBA Associates CEO/Founder Marc Lesser

There are obvious benefits to being active and engaged in life and work, but all too often we can lose balance and in the process create more stress and exhaustion in and around us thus detracting from anything we actually do accomplish.

But what if there were a way to accomplish more by actually doing less? My guest today, Zen teacher and business consultant, Marc Lesser, teaches this radical and time tested approach to living a more productive and meaningful life.

Marc Lesser is the founder and CEO of ZBA Associates, a management consulting, coaching and training company. He is a Zen teacher with an MBA, and author of the book Less: Accomplishing More By Doing Less.

Recognizing the Goddess with Tim Ward

Episode 10 – Recognizing the Goddess with Tim Ward

author Tim Ward

In this episode of Bringing Wisdom to Life we bring you a conversation with Tim Ward, author of Savage Breast: One Man’s Search for the Goddess. Tim explains the relevance of the Divine Feminine to both men and women and shares how men and women can work together to move beyond patriarchy, to a life of greater love, beauty, and abundance.

“In the world of the Goddess, we are totally her children. The planet is her being. We tread upon her surface. Everything we come in contact with are our Brothers and Sisters. And when we die we don’t go to heaven or hell we merely go back into her body to be returned into new life.”

“This issue of the Goddess and scarcity and abundance, moves right into the things that are the burning issues of the 20th Century as we look at things like global warming, as we look at our attitudes towards war and domination.” Tim Ward

“The world is an interconnected web of interdependence, where you pull the web in one place it effects everything else in the living web. It’s a model of not being separate. In that model there is no “away”. It blurs the boundary between me and other, between me and you. It begins to look at life as an ‘us’.” Neil Harvey

“One of the things about being highly sensitive is that we are very visionary, we can see how things can be better easily, we can see ways to make things more comfortable…we have this long view of the big picture.
