Commune with Jeff Krasno

Commune with Jeff Krasno

Commune is a podcast where we explore the ideas and practices that bring us together and help us live healthy, purpose-filled lives. We believe personal and societal health are two sides of the same coin, and that cultivating personal wellness is the first step toward making the world well. We connect with experts, scientists, and storytellers around food, health, social impact, mindfulness and movement practices, personal growth, and environmental action. In addition to being a podcast, Commune is also an online course platform where thousands of participants take each course together, day-by-day, for free. We then provide social tools that empower participants to form local action groups and implement their new knowledge in their communities.

Contrary to an outdated understanding of genetics, your genes aren’t actually “on” or “off.” Different chemicals cause different responses in your genes, and since it is your brain that decides what chemical signals to send to the cells, your consciousness is actually your chief architect. In this episode, Dr. Lipton and Jeff discuss the interconnected relationship between belief and biology, and how you can use Dr. Lipton’s pionee...

Today’s musings comes after the haze of the fireworks has cleared, but the same can not be said for the social and political tensions that characterize the time. This month, the U.S. celebrated its Independence Day, a holiday that, for many, has come to symbolize the tenet of freedom. Sounds simple, right? What could be more straightforward than the concept of freedom? For better or worse, social contracts rarely are, and this look...

When we experience fear, loss, or the hundred other daily stresses inherent in life, it can be easy to retreat inside ourselves until the whole world is just a single point of pain–our pain. Lovingkindness is a practice that, among other things, helps us understand that the path out of loneliness, the cure for fear, is to expand the concern that is normally centered around yourself outward, to include someone else.
