Imagine Paradise Podcast

The new Imagine Paradise Podcast is a little corner of entertainment culture where the #highvibemusic scene is celebrated and elevated. Tony award winning actor, singer/songwriter and licensed spiritual practitioner Levi Kreis interviews the artists who are awakening humanity to our highest divine self and expanding the consciousness of this planet through music. In an industry where conversations about spirituality are often discouraged and devalued, we encourage artists to create from a higher intention and use their gifts to lead humanity to a greater spiritual awareness.

After weeks of evaluating various kinds of dysfunctions related to compulsive thinking and the identification with the mind, we begin exploring the one thing that will allow us to move deeply into the now moment -letting go of the concept of time.  Identification with the mind is intrinsically connected to either the past or the future.  When we can let go of the illusion of time, we discover the space between thoughts and are invi...

Continuing our discussion on enlightenment, we take some time this week to understand the emotional pain body and how to free ourselves from its compulsive, controlling reactions.  Understanding your triggers and learning how to dis-identify with the pain body is essential to enlightenment and will help free you from identification with the mind.

With the last few episodes focusing on freedom from compulsive thinking and identification with the mind, I turn my gaze towards the body-mind connection.  All of us need to learn how to create more space between ourselves and the emotions that we so strongly identify with.  In this episode, you will learn how to become the observer of your emotions rather than becoming your emotions.  I also talk about how to connect with emotions...

Many spiritual gurus say that the identification with the mind is the greatest obstacle to our enlightenment, but what the crap does it mean?  In this episode, I help us pull this concept out of the self-help books and into a tangible understanding of when we are using the mind and when the mind is using us.  Continuing our conversation from previous episodes, we learn this nuance so that we may be free from compulsive thinking, mo...

Most of our society suffers from an addiction to compulsive thinking.  The mind is always reevaluating the past or strategizing for the future -a constant loop of conflict/solution - but very seldom are we ever in the present moment. Identification with the mind is the single greatest obstruction to our enlightenment.  So what is identification with the mind and how do we found our way out?  I want you to know that you can be free ...

There is one spiritual discipline that is often considered the gateway to lasting enlightenment.  Through this, we can be free from the enslavement of the overactive mind and cultivate a life of Oneness.  In the last episode, I started our conversation about spirituality by asking you what is it and why does it matter.  I don't think it matters if it is not tangibly and measurably improving your life.  I like talking about thi...
