signature style: podcasts


deep listening is miraculous for both listener and speaker.
when someone receives us with open-hearted, non-judging,
intensely interested listening, our spirits expand.

hello gorgeous tranquilistas!
thanks for dropping in today for a bit of tranquility. as you might already know, i share musings on signature style here at tdj ~ now on the 2nd wednesday of each month. most recently, i featured fab twitter folk to follow for inspiration, style tips and 140-character thoughts infused with love.

this month's post focuses on creative and inspiring podcasts to enjoy during summer trips or daily commutes. what are podcasts, you might ask? this is a great resource for those of you just getting started.

my first introduction to ms. kimberly wilson was through podcasts. originally titled hip tranquil chick, kimberly's immediately caught my attention. since 2005, her musings and interviews have inspired me to practice yoga on and off the mat. if you haven't spent a few hours digging through her archives, i highly recommend it.

yoga infused
to help set the tone for my home yoga practice, i turn to yoga journal's podcast. their approach is simple, but challenging ~ and they offer both audio or video podcasts for download. additionally, tara stiles offers a quirky & fun podcast called yoga & other useful stuff that is an newly discovered favorite of mine.

earbud stories
i love listening to podcasts that expand my mind and provide nourishing food for thought. this american life is great because it shares first-person accounts of stories woven around a new topic each week. the moth is another story-driven podcast that is as insightful as it is entertaining.

get downloadin'
podcasts are bits and bytes of info delivered free to your computer. they're a great way to learn, explore and dive deeper into topics that make up your signature style. if your a creative soul with a passion for living your dreams, check out creative living with jamie. if you're looking for a way to live a more mindful existence, try listening to the mindfulist.
