- 1:48 — Practicing whole body listening, instead of the cognitive listening we learned is school, is what gives us access to “embodying the truth of someone else’s experience.”
- 6:20 — Manage your struggle with interrupting, or feeling like you’ll lose your thought if you don’t say it now, by jotting a few words to come back to and make the conversation more interesting for your listeners.
- 8:42 — Collaborative Intelligence (authors Dawna Markova and Angie McArthur) helps us understand how differently individual listeners will engage in our podcast. Will they be highly focused, gather about ⅓ of what we share while doing something else, or be completely zoned out?
- 14:35 — Take care of all three doshas and listening types in your podcast by including shownotes, guiding simple breath body practice, and having on point conversation.
- 22:42 — If you agree that podcasting conversations are all about resonance, consider that resonance is more likely to occur in a two-way conversation than interview style podcast when folks are not trying to vie for position.
- ”If we’re on a fast growth learning track, we really want to leverage the learning of others.”
- “Some [listeners] are super focused, some people are literally sorting their mail, some are totally zoned out.”
- “Biking for me is work. I’m actually working on Yoga Healer when I go biking. That’s when the biggest ‘aha!’ moments come.”
- “Vatas need a lot of inspiration…kaphas…need some motivation…Both need to feel they’re part of something that will help create a container for their growth or transformation. A pitta person…need(s) a lot of really good pointed conversation.”
- “When you create audio material, where people are not distracted by the visual field, they’re just receiving the vibration, it’s either a hit or a miss, it’s either a yes or a no.”
- “You can more or less ask me anything and I’ll be like, ‘oh yea, sure, we’ve done self-massage together.’”
