#115 - Manoj Dias On The Mindfulness Movement, Thought Watching & Making Sense Of Your Feelings

Manoj Dias is an animated speaker, humble teacher and always a friend. He is the co-founder of A—SPACE – Australia’s first multidisciplinary meditation studio.

The boys kick it into gear with having Manoj give his background, as well as what got him into meditation and mindfulness. They then talk about the practice of meditation, such as its religious aspects.

Doc and Tommy get to asking Manoj questions, such as what difference has practicing meditation made in his life over the years, and how it helps with getting rid of suffering. Later on, they go more in depth by talking about interpreting your own feelings and watching your own thoughts.

Another great episode for you all. Very in-depth talk about mindfulness and meditation, and we hope you all have something to take away from this one!
