Things that make you go hmmm...

Things that make you go hmmm...
The Art of Living Podcast: Things That Make You Go, Hmm Welcome to another episode of the TAO Living podcast, The Art of Living. I'm your host, Lou Corleto, and today we're going to explore some intriguing concepts that will make you go, "Hmm." Have you ever noticed the health food section in a grocery store? It's interesting to think about what that implies about the rest of the store. If that section is labeled as "health food," what does it make everything else? It's a thought-provoking observation about our society and the way we categorize things. We live in a world where we drive on parkways and park on driveways. We have life insurance for death and health insurance for sickness. We even use natural lemon juice in our dish detergents while consuming artificial lemon juice in our drinks. These contradictions make you wonder about the choices we make and the labels we assign to things. I had the incredible opportunity to explore Antarctica a few years ago. Witnessing the majestic humpback whales migrating thousands of miles without deviating even one degree left me in awe. How do they navigate the open ocean with such precision? And the penguins in Antarctica, enduring extreme temperatures and winds, huddle together to protect their eggs and themselves. They instinctively migrate from the outside to the inside and vice versa, without any leader guiding them. It's fascinating to think about how these animals tap into their inner guidance and trust the process. In contrast, during the devastating tsunami of 2004, countless lives were lost despite our advanced warning systems. However, the wild animals sensed the impending danger and sought higher ground, saving themselves. How did they know? How do they tap into their instincts without directions, maps, or GPS? It's a question that makes you ponder the innate wisdom within us and why we often fail to access it. Science has shed some light on these mysteries. Harvard Medical School recently discovered that humans possess a protein in our eyes called cryptochrome, similar to the one found in animals. This protein is believed to play a role in our intuitive abilities. We've been told that we have five senses, but in reality, we have more. Our sixth sense, intuition, is a powerful tool that we often overlook. Furthermore, science has revealed that there are more brain frequencies than the commonly known beta, alpha, theta, and delta. Gamma and epsilon are states of higher consciousness that we can tap into. These states of awareness are available to all of us, yet we often fail to access them. So, how do we reconnect with our inner guidance and tap into our intuition? The answer lies in the art of living, a philosophy that combines contemporary science, spirituality, quantum physics, mysticism, and Eastern philosophy. Tao Living, as derived from 40 years of personal experience and backed up by scientific research, offers a way of life that can be implemented by anyone. When we are fully present in the moment, we open ourselves up to life's invitations. By letting go of the need to search and allowing our inner light to connect with the guiding light, we align ourselves with the flow of life. Tao Living brings us to the intersection of science and spirituality, providing practical tools to experience presence and transform our lives. Our thoughts shape our reality. When we align our breath, eyes, and mind, we align with life's invitations, and presence finds us. Awareness is curative, and through new experiences, our minds are stretched, preventing us from reverting to our old ways of being and seeing. I invite you to join us for this year's Tao Living Experience, The Art of Living, from May 16-19, 2024. This transformative retreat will take place on our beautiful sanctuary, nestled on 92 acres at the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest. It's an opportunity to reconnect with your inner guidance and vision, and walk your life forward in trust.

5 Days to Healing with Dr. Lou Corleto & Veronika Archer

5 Days to Healing with Dr. Lou Corleto & Veronika Archer
Dr. Lou was interviewed on Veronika's Voice from Veronika Archer International. The topic: 5 Days to FULL Healing  Veronika and Dr. Lou dive into healing the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Powerful! Enjoy this show 5 Days to FULL Healing [Veronika's Voice] If you listened to my Phoenix Burning mini-series, you know that the end of last year and beginning of this year were ROUGH for me. Several significant (and traumatic) events occurred in my family between September and December. By the end of December, I had developed acute physical symptoms including fatigue, pain, and peripheral neuropathy to the point I was only functional 3 to 4 hours a day. I had experienced and recovered from chronic illness in the past and I was determined to resolve this! You may know, I committed to 6 months focused on healing and recovery. I also prioritized working with a healing practitioner and, as synchronicities happen, the perfect practitioner crossed my path. I worked with this practitioner in an intense, one-on-one setting for 5 consecutive days at the end of January. And at the end of those 5 days, I was almost fully recovered!  In fact, a few weeks after returning, I started practicing martial arts 3 to 4 times a week even though I hadn’t worked out for about 5 years prior. People have asked me how on earth that was possible? The answer – working with Dr. Lou Corleto. I am SO excited to share this episode of Veronika’s Voice where Dr. Lou reveals his 3-part process that resulted in such amazing results for me. Dr. Lou Corleto is an internationally recognized speaker, teacher, retreat facilitator, and healer.  He has been studying the human “bodies,” consciousness, and healing principles for 30+ years. He personally has served tens of thousands of people on all seven continents and in over 50 countries. Dr. Lou is famous for the safe and sacred space he holds while delivering elite-level training on healing principles, psychology, physiology, neurology, and conscious living that is practical, spiritually sound, science-based, heart-centered, and astoundingly effective. You may guess that Dr. Lou is in high demand and requires a significant investment for private work (worth every penny!) Dr. Lou’s healing process is founded in 3 Key Principles. For the first time, Dr. Lou has created an online program sharing one of his 3 principles to make this healing accessible to more people.   This process is incredibly effective for emotional, physical, or spiritual healing and is something I incorporate daily! This program is incredibly affordable, check it out here. Enjoy this conversation with my mentor Dr. Lou!  To your wellness,  Veronika  Veronika Archer International https://www.youtube.com/@VeronikaArcherInt/podcasts  P.S. – , My mentor and healing practitioner Dr. Lou Corleto is offering his new online course at an incredible investment This course shares one of his three pillars that supported me in attaining full health.

Feeling Better vs Better Feeling
01-10-2023
Feeling Better vs Better Feeling
Watch Episode Here.   Everybody wants to feel better. And that's a beautiful thing, something you should continually aspire to, for sure.  However, let's get clear on how that works and the difference between “feeling better” and “better feeling”. We've grown up in a society where feeling better has been driven by some form of sedation. We don't like the way we feel so we suppress our feelings. However, if we don’t feel our feelings, do we FEEL better? Better feeling means being present with what you’re feeling. You’re better able to feel. Because here’s the thing - in the unpleasant feelings there's also a massive amount of life, growth, healing, and opportunity. In this episode we explore: How the goal of feeling better may lead to self-deception and denial of the underlying issues How sedation prevents healing How to increasing your emotional bandwidth Pain's primary function in helping us grow and heal The correct way to respond to emotions so we can release them Healthy ways of better feeling our experience And much more! “We can’t heal what we can’t feel.” So, how about you? What are you feeling? What are you numbing?  I encourage you to face all of your feelings because on the other side of them is a brighter, more aligned, joyful life. Up to you! 🙏 - - - - - These are the last few days you can join us at The Art of Living Immersion. Want to face your feelings, feel, and grow? This will be a phenomenal opportunity. October 12-15, 2023 with Lydie Ometto, me, and a group of sincere souls going all in on who they really are. Register here, only a couple spots lefts. Until next time ~ remember who you are, and may you be abundantly blessed,Lou
Conscious Breathing: Pranayama
12-09-2023
Conscious Breathing: Pranayama
>> Watch on YouTube here. This is a continuation from an episode called Eight Limbs of Yoga with my guest, Lydie Ometto. Today we're going to focus on one limb of yoga, and that is pranayama, or conscious breathing. Lou: So why is breath so important to you? Lydie: Well, first is important because I'm alive. Breath is life. It's important for me to ground. It’s important for me to be present in the moment. It’s important for me to connect to nature. As I am breathing, I'm breathing her, nature. So for me, breath is life. Prana means life force, while pranayama is the management of breath, or life force. In this episode Lydie and I explore: Moving and directing energy in nerve system The fastest way to access the autonomic nervous system Basics of breathing:  diaphragmatic breathing and the 1-to-2 ratio The distinctions between nasal, mouth, chest, and belly breathing Utilizing the diaphragm in its full capacity Why the best detox can be learning how to breath properly The power of breath to manage and eliminate physical pain The effect of breath on the mind and meditation Accessing memories through conscious breathing A technique for cooling down the temperature of your body by breathing And so much more! Here is the Conscious Breathing Crash Course, mentioned in this episode.  If you’d really like to take a deep dive into the power of breath to transform your life using all the tools we bring to the table, then we invite you… October 12th - 15th, right here in this beautiful sanctuary. Lydie and I are honored to be the caretakers of over 92 acres in the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest. It is bliss, pure nature.  It's a 4-day immersion which Lydie and I are facilitating.

Eustress vs Distress
03-09-2023
Eustress vs Distress
Watch this episode on YouTube here. Let’s talk about stress.  In this day and age, the amount of stress people are experiencing is quite intense. Well, I'm here to bring some peace and joy to this topic.  The majority of times when people refer to the word “stress”, they only have a negative connotation of what stress is. And there is truth in that aspect, for sure.  However, there's another perspective to what stress is and what it does, and how it can actually be a good thing. In this TAO-Living episode, we explore: Eustress (good stress) vs distress (bad stress) How overcoming challenges, putting your body to the test, and learning something new are all “stressing” your body and mind - yet it’s good for you! The distinctions between “accumulative constructive survival values” and “accumulative destructive survival values” The tool of self-assessment and scanning your day to see if your activities, location, interactions, etc. are building you up or breaking you down How to Manage Your Environment and utilize Conscious Languaging to modify your perspective on stress in your life Mindfulness, thriving, and much more! If you only conceive of stress from a negative connotation, you're missing a powerful productive ally in your life.  Learning, growing, working out, overcoming challenges - all of these things are productive “eustress” that help you stay healthy and move forward in your life! Thanks for tuning in and please be aware that we have a “eustress” experience 😉 coming up in October: The Art of Living Immersion. If you'd like to experience four days of transformation with an intimate group of people in pure nature, doing some amazing work to handle the destructive stuff, and incorporate the constructive, life affirming shifts in your life - join us October 12th to 15th! Abundant Blessings, Lou

The Eight Limbs of Yoga with Lydie Ometto
I am blessed to share with you an amazing guest on the TAO-Living Podcast - Lydie Ometto. Lydie comes to us with incredible gifts, talents, and wisdom. She has a doctorate in Physical Therapy and in Chinese Medicine. She is a certified Massage Therapist, a Yoga Teacher Trainer, Yoga Teacher Instructor Trainer, Certified in Iridology and Kinesiology, and much more.  Lydie also brings to us her innate gifts: deep intuition, energetic awareness, clairaudience, clairsentience - she’s a multi-talented woman! Our conversation is about the art, science, and philosophy of yoga. Many people think that the essence of yoga is that it is a tool for physical health and that is all it is. However, in reality the asanas (yoga poses and postures) are only one aspect of what yoga really is.  Lydie helps us understand the goal of yoga, the many types of yoga, and how to apply yoga principles to your life. We explore: How asana postures were originally intended to enhance sitting in meditation What yoga has in common with martial arts The power of pranayama, lifeforce connection Reconnecting to and remembering who we are as spirit Mantra yoga and how sound can create healing Seva or karma yoga: connecting to the divine through service How to start living the principles of yoga from wherever you are on the path How we treat our own selves, how we treat others, and how we allow others to treat us How the individual affects the collective vibrationally and vice versa And much more! It was so fun to have Lydie on the podcast because 1) she is my life partner and I’m so grateful to share her insights with the listening audience… …And also 2) so you could see who joins me in facilitating The Art of Living Immersion! We are looking forward to welcoming an intimate group of 20 people to our property here in Tennessee, USA for 4 days of healing, transforming, and shining in your spirit. October 12 - 15, 2023.

Doing the Work

Doing the Work
Have you ever felt any of the below feelings about personal development, healing, the “work” of transforming, and remembering who you really are? “I’m tired of doing the work.” “Forget it, I want to take a break from doing this work…” “I’ve been doing the work for XX years. I’m frustrated. I’m not getting anywhere…” “It’s taking so long.” This episode will help you tweak your program so that the “work” you’re doing in your self-development can shift and actually get you to your goals. We explore: 2 key ways to reframe your mindset about the “work” of healing/transformation How there’s nothing actually wrong or broken with YOU!

It might be time for a deeply honest check in with yourself to see if you’re really doing the work, and how you need to tweak your approach and support structures so that you’re moving forward again.

Those People
30-07-2023
Those People
Let’s talk about “those people”. You know, the people who are doing the things you want to do but aren’t. Traveling to the places you want to go but don’t. Achieving the things you desire to achieve but haven’t seemed to be able to get there. Who live life boldly, who believe in themselves, who thrive, who go for it - who manifest the life they want… When you see ‘those people’ do you judge them? Do you tell yourself stories about them, or about yourself to justify why YOU can’t achieve what YOU want in your life? In this TAO-Living episode we explore: Your identity as someone who “can’t” have what those people have The consciousness behind judging + lying to yourself The abundance you’re blocking by judging “those people” How to truly embrace and learn from people further on the path than you How to move forward and BLESS those people for doing, having, and being what they choose in their lives Subconscious beliefs and how to bring them forth and upgrade them Deciding you can BE, do, have, what you desire Give yourself the gift of cleaning up limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind! Until those are handled and addressed, you'll keep hitting limitations in your life, whether in success, health, wealth, abundance, happiness, joy, fulfillment, etc.  Desire support with this?  So you can BE WHO YOU BE and become one of “those people” who truly thrive? Here are a few ways I can support you: Life By DesignAugust 25-27, 2023 This is a 3-day gathering of like-minded souls willing to uplevel, upgrade limiting beliefs, and design their lives according to their true nature and desire.

Managing Your Environment
24-07-2023
Managing Your Environment
Today I’m going to focus on ways to ‘manage our environments’ and what we associate with so we can maximize our full potential in life. When I got a grasp on how to manage my environment years ago, it became a game changer for me and my clients that I share with. So let’s discuss! Because if you don't manage your environment, your environment manages you.  We can break it down into two components: the internal and the external environment. This episode is going to help you with your internal environment by looking at these key elements: Do you have a guard at the gate of what you allow into your consciousness, into your inner sanctum? What are you putting into your brain? What are you allowing into your heart? How do you manage your thoughts? How do you speak? What language are you using? What do you put in your temple (your body)? The more foods get processed, the less it is true food! What is the quality and quantity of your water intake?

Life By Your Design
Today's episode comes to you LIVE from a beautiful small island in the Bahamas. And this environment is ideal because this episode is all about living life by your design. Last week I was facilitating an amazing group of ChiropracTORs from all over Europe in Barcelona, Spain. Afterward, I drove to the north at the border with France to go skydiving. Now I’m supporting my partner in her retreat diving with wild dolphins.  I’m reflecting on how I achieved this - how I designed my life and how I support others around the world to do the same. I grew up as one of nine kids. So if we went anywhere on a vacation, we didn't go far. Eleven people in the station wagon driving down the highway, somebody screaming, “we gotta go to the bathroom!” And since there's 11 people in the car, you don't stop every time someone has to go to the bathroom - you pass around an old peanut butter jar or something like that, so that we can get to the destination… Great times and amazing experiences, for sure. Yet, as I grew up, I started to see other people traveling, especially as a teenager, and it became a pattern in my mind, “That’s for those people.”  I had some work to do to overcome that limiting belief about myself - so that I could live life by MY design! In this episode, we explore: Self-limiting beliefs that keep you playing small How to live life by YOUR design without compromise Lack and limitation in our subconscious mind The stories we tell ourselves that need to be checked How to make the paradigm shift from surviving to thriving And much more. Plus hear about an opportunity to join me and a small group of sincere souls, so that you can engage in living YOUR life by YOUR design. Life By Design Join us August 25-27, 2023 for a game-changing weekend. As Always ~ Abundant Blessings! Lou
What's Your Medicine?

What's Your Medicine?
This episode was inspired by my evening ritual, which currently consists of breath holds, steam room, and cold plunging! I started to reflect on how grateful I feel for these tools which I use for my health and well being on all levels.  This is some of my 'medicine'. I extrapolate the life force from life, nature and the elements. I don’t use "pills, potions or lotions" of any kind. As I was reflecting on various forms of “medicine”, I’d invite you to reflect on what your “medicine” is ? What’s working for you in your health and well being?! What’s in your “medicine cabinet”? In this episode of TAO-Living we explore: What does it say about our culture if each house is built with a medicine cabinet in it? Natural free “medicine” you can access easily at any time The TRUE source of healing!!

URUBU... You Are You, Be You!

URUBU... You Are You, Be You!
A few years back, I was in Brazil completing one of our humanitarian mission trips. It was an intense week, so I went to walk on the beach to just decompress and be in nature, by the ocean.  It was early morning before many people were on the beach, and all of the sudden these huge birds came and landed close by, and I was just watching the birds do their thing.  A local went by and I asked him, "What's the name of that bird, in Portuguese?”  So he said, “Urubu.” "Wow, that's beautiful. How do you spell that?" And he said, “U-R-U-B-U.”  I didn't have a pen and paper, but in my mind I was writing it down. And as I did that for the second time, it landed…  U-R-U-B-U. You Are You, Be You.  So that's the essence of this podcast today! You are you, be you.  Now here's the thing: how many of us are actually doing that?  As for me unfortunately I wasn't doing this, yet I thought it was.  And I can safely say for the 10s of 1000s of people I've worked with - many people around the planet - they believe they are being their true selves, and yet they are not as they (like I was) are living (actually existing) from old programs and limiting beliefs. Let's unpack that. In this episode we explore: The Chinese proverb: “Tension is who you think you should be, relaxation is who you are.” Letting go of all the facades we put up How comparisons constrict our worldview Why people do not see us for who we really are “When you’re born to stand out, you can’t fit in.” Playing small and hiding aspects of ourselves in order to not upset others Ego vs inflated ego vs deflated ego Society’s role in defining who you are supposed to be Congruency in your life The urubu bird is actually a vulture. It’s not the prettiest bird, and it’s not looking to be anything else than what it is. We can learn from the urubu - and the Portuguese spelling of “urubu”. U-R-U-B-U. You are you, be you! So who you be? ~ ~ ~ If you’re ready to answer that question - and don’t know what to do next - or do and desire to expedite that process massively… I invite you to join me August 25-27 for a three-day event, called Life By Design. We will be an intimate group of 18 people max in my studio here Tennessee, USA.  I'd love to have you come play. Click here to learn more about Life By Design.
