Great interview…. here is a sample:

JKZ:  First of all you’ll have so much more time, and second of all real life still unfolds. You will still have a full life. And if you’re unemployed and you have to find a job then maybe you won’t be so bummed out that all the possibilities seem against you. You can tap into what’s possible, independent of what all the experts are saying is possible. That’s a hugely powerful way to work with things.

So one way is to just cut it out for a period of time and see how addicted we are to it and what the affect of it is. I had that experience once when I went on retreat right after 9/11. I was on retreat for six weeks, no newspaper, no radio, no nothing. I was just meditating and sitting and walking all the time for six weeks. . .

Check out more in the article.  And there is a link to a meditation.

Wake Up Festival — sponsored by Soundstrue.com

Here is how the retreat is described:

Transformation is a process that draws its power from the depths of this very moment. When we’re fully present and seeing clearly, we can access the fullness of our compassion, courage, creativity, and joy—the very qualities that will sustain us and support our future vision as we go about our lives.

The Wake Up Festival is your opportunity to deepen your appreciation of the preciousness of the moment, all the while celebrating together the dreams and aspirations that make you uniquely you. We look forward to seeing you there!
