People say multitasking makes us more productive, and pressure keeps us focused.  Do you work well under pressure and feel more focused or less?  Just because you can do five things at once does that mean you should?  Recent research on focus, memory and multitasking is revealing we may not be the super-taskers that we thought we were. I talk about two types of focus and explore how to be focused, naturally,  no matter what else is going on.

Aired Live Friday, January 7

If you are ripe for finding focus – even within your current chaotic surroundings – tune in to learn the kind of awareness that creates focus when you need it.

For twenty five years, Thomas M. Sterner, author of The Practicing Mind: Bringing Discipline and Focus Into Your Life, served as concert piano technician for The Grand Opera House and operated a vintage grand piano restoration company. This week, Thomas talks about how the discipline required for his career, combined with his interest and study of both Eastern thought and modern performance enhancement psychologies, lead him to understand the source of inner strength, peace and self-discipline, and the value of staying in the present moment.

Sterner is founder of Mountain Sage Publishing

Everyone is creative. Not everyone is a painter or an “artist” but as a human being you are born with creativity. The creative mind finds solutions to problems, makes up ideas, and finds ways out of traps.  When you feel at the end of your rope, frustrated, bored, or unwell... could it be you just need to tap the creative mind you already have?  This week I explore how to do that with Heart-Core Creativity Coach Evelyne Brink.

Peter Fenner and I explore 'Radiant Mind' - unconditioned awareness in which nothing is needed and nothing needs to be taken away.

You actually can feel during the show how Buddhist nondual wisdom can integrate naturally with the complexities of daily commitments.  I love that Peter talks about

* the anti-frantic environment
* how to stop making a problem out of having problems
* why we get stuck when we think there is more to know than we know right now
* why we don't have to make anything better

Peter helps us understand how to be in the 'experience of unconditioned awareness' which allows painful thoughts and feelings to dissolve.

Over 38 years Peter has distilled the essence of traditions like Zen, Dzogchen and the Buddhist Middle Way, and adapted them to suit our post-modern culture.
He teaches worldwide and  has written extensively on Buddhist nondual traditions, including his latest book: Radiant Mind: Awakening Unconditional Awareness.

Don't miss his 9-month Radiant Mind Course in Vancouver BC, May 7, 2010 - Feb 20, 2011

Do you believe we all have complete freedom? Complete. Freedom. When Viktor Frankl (Man's Search For Meaning) said that even when the Nazi's were torturing his body, he still had ultimate freedom to choose, what did he mean? Was he simply an exceptional human being with something special about him that no one else has? And If we all have this capacity, how do we tap into it every day?

My guest is Kara Stamback, whose work is based on Three Principles Psychology; we will talk about what ultimate psychological freedom means and just how accessible it is.

Kara Stamback, M.S., is a teacher, counselor, consultant and facilitator in principle-based psychology. She is an Associate at www.pranskyandassociates.com
