OK, let me say right at the top that I did not choose the title of the podcast I did with the good folks at Curable Health. I cringe whenever the word “master” gets thrown at a human, most especially if that human happens to be me.
The best definition of “master” I’ve ever heard is: “A master is someone who is capable of creating another master.” This simple concept emphasizes the fact that mastery is a process that is never completed – that it involves passing knowledge freely from one generation to the next. In other words, the word master is an ever-evolving verb for what a teacher does, not a fixed noun for what or who a teacher is.
That aside, I am really quite pleased with how this interview came out. Through the well-informed questioning of Laura Seago, I got to tell some very personal stories, some of which regular readers of this blog will have heard in a different context. From her description of the interview:
“So what happened when he lost his breath for six months? When he lost control of his body? When he lost touch with his emotions? Join us as Leslie recounts his deeply personal journey to “mastery,” and shares what he’s learned about life, yoga, and the power of breath.”
Have a listen to the podcast, and let me know what you think. Also, check out the great app Curable has built for people suffering from chronic pain. It’s based on the work of the recently deceased Dr. John Sarno, and I think it can help a lot of people. For many years, I’ve been recommending Sarno’s books, but now, I have the option of sending them to Curable to have a more direct, interactive experience of his groundbreaking work.
Lastly, if you’re anywhere near these showings of the wonderful documentary “All the Rage: Saved by Sarno,” rush out and see it. It opens in L.A. tomorrow (August 11, 2017).
