Path to Peace with Todd Perelmuter

Religion & Spirituality Podcas

Having seen so many around me suffering from stress, addiction, suicidal thoughts, anxiety and depression, I decided to embark upon a 9-year journey that would take me to over 35 countries living with and learning from shamans, gurus, monks and tribes. I studied 16 religions and spiritualities, ancient wisdom and modern science, and spent 50 days meditating in total solitude, all in an effort to discover the secrets to a peaceful mind. If you’re ready to let go of your negative thoughts and the baggage that is weighing you down, if you’re ready for a life filled with joy, purpose and meaning, please join me on the Path to Peace with Todd Perelmuter.

Not Feeling Good Enough? Do This

5/17/2024
Everyone will have failures in life. The more success we have, the more times we'll have failed. That's the nature of learning, growth and success. We will all have things that we feel inadequate about. Michael Jordan might be a great basketball player, but his Mandarin might be atrocious. The reason we feel inadequate is not because we're imperfect, it's because we are comparing our unique selves to other people's unique skills and advantages. In today's podcast, I share how we can go from feeling inadequate to confident, master any skill, and love ourselves exactly as we are.

How to Overcome Impatience to Improve Your Life

In our fast-paced world, it's very easy to internalize the hyper speed frenzy all around us. But this frantic pace is destroying our mental health, our relationships, and our lives.

How to Play the Game of Life

2/23/2024
When we embark upon our path to peace, we frequently find ourselves at a fork in the road. One way, is safe, easy, familiar and has the allure of peacefulness. The other way is scary, unknown, adventurous and requires great courage. One way seeks outer peace, but the other way creates inner peace.

Stop Torturing Yourself with Your Thoughts

2/8/2024
Why do we suffer a tragic event long after it's over? Why are our joyous celebrations so short-lived? And why do minor inconveniences and annoyances have the power to ruin our whole day?

How to Stop Worrying About the Future

1/25/2024
Our lives — like all things — exist in cycles. Some years we are growing, and some years we are enjoying. Some years are for sowing, and some are for reaping. But sometimes, it can feel like we are trapped in an unending cycle, repeating the same patterns and choices over and over and over and over again. When these trying times go on for decades, we can easily begin to feel stuck, scared, alone and hopeless. But there is always hope. There is always a way to accept this moment in our journey, to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and keep climbing that mountain. So how can we break free from our past? How can we make peace with our lives? And how can we build the future we were born to live? I cover these topics and more in today's podcast.

How to Be at Peace If Life Is Unfair

I know it, and you know it. Terrible things happen to wonderful people and wonderful things happen to people who've done tremendous harm. If even a great man like Gandhi was assassinated, what chance do the rest of us have at a peaceful and good life?! So how can we understand the seeming unfairness in our world?

Is it possible to show love and forgiveness to those who have committed the most hateful and unforgivable sins? We've seen it time and time again, when the pope washes the feet of criminals.
