On this episode, I talk about the unreflective ambitions, passions, and desires that can drag us in directions that we really don’t want to go. I talk about busyness and people pleasing and the transformative power of breathing.
I summarize Tim Kreider’s excellent essay Lazy: A manifesto and introduce you to some obscure but important early Christian thinkers like Maximus the Confessor, Theophilus of Antioch, and St. John of the Cross.
I conclude with a poem that will help you integrate the practice of breathing into your daily rhythms.
