During times of challenge, struggle, and even suffering, summed up in one brilliant Yiddish word, "oy," it's imperative we have pay attention to the blessings, see what is beautiful, laugh, live and love. Humor, laughter and joy are one of our primary pathways to illuminate the darkness. It's time to defy the Oy through embracing the Joy! Read the Oy to Joy
A relentless pandemic, political turmoil, raging wildfires, torrential hurricanes, social upheaval, economic volatility... During these chaotic times it is far too easy to lose ourselves, our feeling of control and our sense of personal power. Now, more than ever before, we need new goals, rules and tools for learning to survive, and thrive, through these turbulent times. Join Ariela and Baruch for a Soul Centered discussion on what it means to OM Your Power amidst the chaos of life.
In this SouL Centered Podcast, Ariela and B discuss, “Love Languages,” an idea made popular in the book, “The 5 Love Languages,” by Gary Chapman. It's a conversation about seeing our relationships through the lens of the other person, as well as speaking our truth and getting our needs met - especially in the Afternoon of Life.
If you are going to live a life that matters, you are going to have to put yourself out there, and int he process you will meet with defeat. Defeat, however, is a gift. Literally, it comes from the French word meaning, “undoing,” and it will help you undo your old ways, limiting patterns and whatever is keeping you small. Greatness and success aren't about avoiding defeat, rather, they come through growing from adversity. When defeat is our undoing, only then can we reimagine ourselves, rebuilt our lives and return to our true self. That is how we are undefeated through defeats.

The Afternoon of Life presents us with many opportunities in discovering our true self, none more so than life's shatterings, shadows and darkness. In the words of Dr. Carl Jung, "One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." When the darkness descends, if we are willing to face it, enter it and persevere through it, we will not only uncover our truth, we will discover the divine in ways we never could in the light, and never would in the Morning of Life.

As we transition into the Afternoon of Life, the Universe whispers to us, in a myriad of ways, to wake up, grow up, and stand up in our lives and become the men/women we were meant to become. However, whether or not we choose to respond, eventually She brings to us unmistakable, unavoidable, Shatterings. When we learn to face the Shatterings we can transform them through discovering meaning and purpose within them, ultimately growing from them which is how we transform the Afternoon of Life and our life.
The Morning of Life (prior to 40) is defined by a sense of forgetting - forgetting who you are in the chaos and complexities of all that the Morning of Life entails. However, the Universe always comes whispering, and when She does, She brings with Her the opportunity to remember our authentic self, listen to our soul and move forward into the Afternoon of Life differently than we did in the Morning.
In this Soul Centered Conversation, Ariela and Rabbi B explore the Morning of Life (prior to midlife) goals and rules. If you want to discover purpose, healing & inspiration in the Afternoon of Life, first you have to know where you’ve come from before you can know where you are going. In the words of Carl Jung, "for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.”
Ariela & Rabbi B talk about what it means to "OM Your Power." In this podcast you will explore a powerful set of tools to use in discovering true freedom, purpose and joy. These six tools are especially important during chaotic & turbulent times (outer and inner chaos). It begins when you OM Your Power!
In this episode Rabbi B interviews a friend and client, Barb Hirsch-Giller, discussing Barb's pro-active and transformative journey into the Afternoon of life. Barb shares her renewed sense of purpose as she turns 70, moves into reinspirement (aka "retirement") and shares her passion for what is becoming the most important and inspiring phase of her life - the Afternoon of life.
