Episode 21: High on Being with Michael J. Grimes
Michael Grimes had it all: a life on the beach, a great family and running the revolutionary charter school of his dreams. Then everything came to a crashing halt.
Working through this new low, Michael slowly picked up the pieces one by one by cultivating his own wellness practice based on ancient spiritual texts coupled with modern therapeutic techniques. He shares these insights + wisdom in his newest book, High On Being: A Trail Guide to Being Fully Alive and with us on the podcast this week!
We chat about:
- connection as an important part of wellness
- becoming a human being rather than a human doing
- creating a framework of mindfulness
- overcoming “toxic masculinity” by creating safe spaces for men
