Sound Healing
I met Joshua at a yoga event where i had formerly performed and he was performing. We share a passion for sharing music with others, and immediately connected. We played some music together that evening, and I knew I wanted to get him on the show. We hadn’t yet had a chance to share much with each other, which is exactly how i like my podcast guests. The more curious, the better the interview. This turned out to be one of my favorite interviews, the amount of similarities in our paths is staggering. In this episode, we discuss the skillsets and entrepreneurial drive that develops from being in a band, the unbelievable power of musical ecstasy, connecting the soul to the body through dance, and much more. We bookended our interview with some improvised sound healing in my living room. Ill share a clip of our session following our discussion. Small disclaimer, we recorded this episode in my home office, which inspires the opening of the interview. I promise you, this isnt an episode on the band phish, so hang in there. Sorry im not sorry…
On a side note, Joshua has created one of the biggest online platforms for teaching mindful cooking and eating and has amassed over one million Youtube followers. It called “The Brothers Green” and its a phenomenal channel. I had no idea until a day before the interview about that side of his life. We don’t touch on cooking in this episode, but do have plans to do a round 2 on mindful cooking in the near future. I really enjoyed getting to know Joshua Greenfield on this episode, and am honored to have him as a new member of the Mindmill tribe!
A NOTE FROM SETH
This episode is all about art, music, and expression; and I wanted to share something with you thats been in my thoughts recently. This show has given amazing opportunities to share my own story as well as connect with other passionate humans all over the world. Ive met awesome new friends and been inspired countless times. The resounding theme of the show has really been that all genuine expression is art. Whether its in business, athletics, cooking, parenting or music; all art requires a bold personal stance and action. To me, it means absorbing from your inspirations and experiences, formulating your own passions, and boldly pursuing actions that make an impact. Its never easy, its life’s true challenge, and it dictates our fulfillment. I notice this when Im working on new music, a new Mindmill episode, starting a project; anything where I’m diving into the unknown. Theres the fear of rejection and failure, and it can be stifling. The butterflies that swarm my whole body and I want to seek refuge in my Netflix, my instagram, my distraction bubble. This is where its so crucial to take the leap, to go for it, to simply start. I recently heard something so wise; to recognize the butterfly moments as the most important moments in your life. Chances are, when you feel those butterflies, when the fight or flight kicks in, this could be a moment you will remember for the rest fo your life, should you choose to seize the opportunity. You don’t have to be a painter or published author to be an artist. you simply need to find your butterflies, and f ing go for it!
