Amazing talk Power words! Thank you


Bryan, thank you for this interview with Yung Pueblo. His observation that”the mind doesn’t like the present moment” was striking. I wish you had asked him to expand on this a bit, given all the rage now about “the power of now.” Yet again, I know it’s not possible to question every possible key idea, so thanks again for presenting this to us.


Loved this interview!


Brian you really ought to interview Eckhart Tolle – he’s amazing


Thank you so much, amazing interview


Meditating for seven whole years….wow.
