In this episode, I interview my former mentor and spiritual teacher Jeff Carreira.
Jeff and I lived, worked, and practiced in an intentional spiritual community together for 13 years in Western Massachusetts. Jeff was not only a spiritual mentor to me during that time, but he was also my boss.
Jeff was the Director of our educational programming, and I was his program manager. Together, Jeff and I built a thriving program of retreats and virtual courses.
And in a strict ashram with a hard teacher, Jeff provided an oasis of ease and compassionate presence. Jeff helped me, and many others, through many a rough patch.
Today, Jeff leads his own retreats, courses, and teacher trainings over at JeffCarreira.com.
Find Equanimity Amid Uncertainty
So I was delighted to reconnect with him during this Zoom interview with a live audience. I spoke with Jeff at the outset of the pandemic in March as part of a series called Finding Equanimity Amid Uncertainty. And as always, he was intent on communicating a message of positivity and possibility.
Then, he led us all through a powerful guided meditation and answered questions.
I encourage to take the time to listen to this whole episode. Set aside an hour and find a quiet place to listen. You’ll get a heavy dose of Jeff’s infectious optimism followed by a deep transmission of peace, ease, and fundamental well being.
