Join us for this thought-provoking conversation with Jerome Burdi. Jerome is a Dharma yoga teacher and Bhakti musician. His path first led him to writing as a newspaper crime journalist. Jerome then found the spiritual path through ayahuasca ceremonies, which led him to vipassana meditation and yoga. He is currently based in Barcelona, Spain where he leads yoga teacher trainings, workshops, and classes.
In the episode, Jerome and I talk about following your bliss to lead you to your purpose. Jerome shares how his journey took him from crime journalism to teaching yoga. We talk about the importance of enthusiasm and self-practice. We also discuss releasing our attachment to the fruits of our labor. Finally, we talk about the twist of fate that landed Jerome in his current city of Barcelona, Spain.
Highlights from the episode:
Following Your Heart: Jerome highlights that purpose is about listening to what your heart truly desires rather than conforming to external pressures. Many people follow paths that don't align with their inner calling, leading to a sense of discontent.
Letting go: Jerome shares how ayahausca ceremonies led him to spiritual path and how he could no longer be numb to the pain and suffering from his job as a crime journalist.
Enthusiasm and Tapas: Jerome defines enthusiasm as being filled with spirit or divinity, leading to a playful and joyful approach to life.
Consistency, Attachment, and Aversion: Jerome talks about how consistency is what leads to mastery. He also shares the importance of releasing attachment to the fruits of ones actions and how there's always something you can practice.
Follow your Bliss: Jerome shares how following his bliss led him from NYC to Milan to Barcelona.
