Clarifying Non-Attachment and Spiritual Bypass with Kaya Mindlin (Rerelease)

The Wild and Wise

ep. #33 If you've dipped your toe in the waters of yogic practice or philosophy, and you have if you've ever even googled "mindfulness", this conversation will deepen and clarify some of the common mistranslations and misunderstandings of how to live our lives while also walking a spiritual path. We especially explore the ways being a parent can often feel "in the way" of our spiritual goals and practices. The difficult distance between our ideals and reality. Kaya speaks so beautifully to the gift we can give ourselves and our children when we practice and live our spiritual journey as family. In this episode, I share about my own personal upbringing, raised in a yogic intentional community. Kaya also has a deep and meaningful relationship with this community, and we both hold so much love and respect for the teachings, the people and the beauty that is present there. While I do speak to some of my personal experiences and interpretations, I am sure they were unique to my own experience, my own family system and the projecting we as humans do onto others. So I ask you to hold what you hear with the awareness of both being true: reality and projection. Things we touch on: The misconceptions of practicing non-attachment The absolute and the relative realities we exist in Spiritual bypass Splitting of life into spiritual life and the rest The four stages of life How not to sacrifice your spiritual life Accepting or rejecting mental/emotional reactions We can model our humanity for our kids What family spiritual practice can look like Clarifying karma yoga and selfless service I do my work so you can do yours Where to start Kaya Mindlin is a Yoga therapist and educator who has been teaching the “softer side of yoga” for 19 years.Learn more about Kaya's work at YogawithKaya.com Kaya's InstagramUse the code "wildandwise20"for 20% off this ONLINE program: The Nectar of ActionExplore the most essential teachings for householders seeking true spiritual growth amidst the responsibilities of life.BEGINS JULY 15 2021Mallika's website: https://www.thewildandwise.com/Mallika's Instagram https://www.instagram.com/thewildandwise/If you have enjoyed the show, please rate, review and subscribe in iTunes. You can also check out some of our other older episodes: Episode 2 - Baba Yaga and Our Wild Woman IntuitionEpisode 3 - Exploring Our Inner Knowing with Kadhi BoEpisode 4  - Earth Magick and Regenerative Ways of Living with Marysia MiernowskaUpcoming Offerings:Want to join a F R E E virtual New Moon Circle?
