Ep. 5: Amir Karkouti - Mind Your Thoughts

Coming Into Focus

On this episode Jay chats with longtime friend Amir Karkouti. Amir is a master certified, transformative coach who has spent over 10 years as an advisor and mentor to fortune 500 CEO’s, military men and women, and anyone who is looking to get more out of themselves and their lives. Amir is also an author of several books, and the owner of a chain of restaurants called Surf Brother’s Teriyaki. Jay and Amir get into a conversation about Amir’s experience coming to the United States from Iran at a very young age, and how those early experiences had an impact on the work he does today. Amir also candidly discusses his reaction to a commonly known medication which led to bouts of severe fatigue, depression and ultimately thoughts of suicide. Through all of this, Amir discusses the philosophy that is at the center of his work with others, and how his own understanding of these principals helped him manage his own distress.Amir Karkouti:https://www.amirkarkouti.comAmir's books on AmazonOther resources:Mindfulness Meditation BlogNational Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255Crisis Text LineIf you love this podcast, please drop a review on whatever platform you listen on!

Is there life after the 3 principles? - Amir Karkouti and Lian

The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Amir Karkouti and it's a little different to our usual episode format. Amir is a Transformative Coach, a business owner, author, speaker, recovery centre volunteer, an old friend and someone who has been a guest on this show in it's early days - 5 years ago in fact! This was in our first evolution when this show was called The Born Happy Show and our focus was all about a spiritual teaching called the Three Principles, also known as the 3Ps. This episode is particularly focused around the 3Ps but there will also be much of value here if you've walked any spiritual path. The background to this episode is that I reached out to Amir inspired by a completely out-of-the-blue idea “What if Amir and I created a show about the 3Ps from the perspective of where we each are now on our paths...him: successfully living, teaching and coaching from a 3Ps understanding, and me: having had a huge transformation seven years ago thanks to the 3Ps, spending several years coaching and teaching from that understanding, and then subsequently having transitioned away onto other things?” I knew that Amir was someone with a wide open mind and a huge heart, and was someone with whom I could co-create a deep and honest conversation about… How we each see the 3Ps and the community Our thoughts on the struggles and the disillusionment we see show up Life after the 3Ps Beyond all the dogma and controversy, the huge benefit we see in people ‘waking up’ via this path.  This was recorded as a live webinar in Amir's group so you'll hear us take questions from our audience as well as all the other fun and games that happen on a live webinar! If you've been on the 3Ps path... this episode answers all the questions you've been afraid to ask ;)

064 Phil Goddard - The Nature of Beliefs - A Conversation with Amir Karkouti

The Coaching Life

The Nature of Beliefs - A Conversation with Amir KarkoutiAnd why sharing your understanding of the principles (or indeed anything) may be unhelpful...In this episode I share a conversation I had with my dear friend Amir, for his WTF Are The Principles Group.Let’s look at the nature of beliefs and the role they play in our interpretation of the world.We’ve seen some passionate debates around these parts, strong opinions, gentle pointing, all usually with an undercurrent of ‘so long as you're pointing to truth it’s all cool.’I like that sentiment too.But are we pointing to truth?Or have we been hoodwinked by an unintentional magic trick that appears to have swept aside our beliefs only to instil another?Let’s explore...Here’s how Amir introduced this conversation:Alright folks, I am excited about this one! You may have seen him as the host of "The Coaching Life" Podcast where he interviewed some of the top coaches in our industry. You may have read his books Musings on Love and the sequel More Musings on Love. You may have seen him jump in and answer a question on Facebook from a completely different space that blew you away. Well, you will finally get a chance to listen to him speak and share with us. I am going to give you a personal bio even though his bio is posted below. I have known Phil since the beginning days of my coaching career. We have done workshops together and he has become a very good friend. One thing that separates Phil from so many is that he embodies what he shares. His personality, his love of life, and his generosity seeps in every facet of his existence. Whenever we spend time together I feel like I got bathed in a spiritual bath. He is incredibly human and has a talent to see what most of us don't see about how amazing we are!You can find Amir's group on Facebook via welovesyd.comHere's a little more about Phil:Phil Goddard is an internationally renowned life & relationship coach, speaker, leadership consultant, and lover of life and humanity.
