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.

How to Make the Mind and Heart One

6/14/2024
What does it mean to listen to our heart? How do we even do that? And how do we resolve the inner conflict between our head and our heart?

For most of us, this creates an imbalance inside ourselves. In today's podcast, I share the difference between the mind's intelligence and the heart's wisdom. I talk about how to connect the two. And I discuss two simple ways we can make sure they are working together in harmony and alignment.

Feel Confident Being Seen, Heard, and Taking Up Space

5/24/2024
All of us to some degree have a fear of being seen, truly seen. We put up walls, we build barriers, and we project an outward appearance that we think will be the most universally accepted. But this artificial persona we create actually causes us great stress and insecurity. We constantly fear we'll be found out, we'll feel like imposters, and our needy insecurity will make us doubt ourselves. In today's podcast, I share the reasons why we put up these walls of inauthenticity, and I share some simple ways we can tear them down so we can live true to ourselves and to what makes us truly happy.

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 Play the Game of Life

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.
