This week I received an e-mail from one of my readers asking me if I could recommend books to help her kick-start her spiritual journey. I’m such a sucker for books so, of course I’ve sent her a looong list with all my favorite picks for when you are just starting out.
But then, it got me thinking.
On the blog, I have more than once recommended books for the spiritual beginners. But never have I created anything equal for movies, videos, podcasts and what not! That’s crazy since there are so many amazing resources out there !
- Read : 5 amazing books on the Law of Attraction
- Read : 11 incredible books about Reiki
- Read : 9 ultimate must-haves for your meditation room
So, I’ve decided that over the next couple of weeks I would create blog posts about movies, podcasts and videos that bring strong value to the spiritual explorer. And I am starting right now.
5 Spiritual TED Talks You Must Watch
I have put the TED Talk website upside down searching for the best videos to share with you. After watching an impressive amount of videos, I have created a selection of my 5 favorite TED Talks surrounding spirituality, consciousness, awakening and much more !
So, grab a blanket, get real cozy and let the Spiritual TED Talks marathon begin !
In this 19 minutes long TedTalk, Dada Gunamuktananda, a yogi and meditation teacher, gives a mind-boggling talk about the yogic concept of space. In this lecture, you will see how modern science has taught us to believe that the Universe was created out of nothing without any intention behind but how perhaps, there is more to it. Watch this TedTalk to discover how modern science is just now coming around to the conclusion held by yogic science for millennia, with an explanation of our Universe that will take your understanding to a whole new level. Bonus : Dada Gunamuktananda is quite funny and adorable.
Are you having a good day ? How about tomorrow, would you rather have a good day or a bad day? These are the questions that Gen Kelsang Nyema, a Buddhist nun will be asking you in this 15 minutes long Ted Talk. Sounds pretty simple hu ? Well, you will discover that as simple as these questions might seem at first, they reveal a complex truth : if we want to be happy, we have to stop outsourcing our happiness to other people and cultivate a source of inner peace. Watch this TedTalk to discover that your happiness lies within your own hands or should I say, mind. Also, if you are feeling stressed or angry, this Buddhist nun’s voice will sure calm you down.
This TedTalk is by Phil Borges, a filmmaker and photographer, that has been documenting indigenous and tribal cultures for over 25 years. In this half-hour long TedTalk, he talks about how after years of documenting indigenous and tribal cultures he developed a fascination for people that go into altered states of consciousness in order to heal or predict for their tribes and how he started documenting their connection to the divine. Watch this TedTalk if you want to expand your awareness, learn about spiritual awakening and healing with the help of the spiritual world and how it relates to mental health.
In this 20 minutes long TedTalk, Cognitive Neuroscientist, Dr. David Vago demonstrates that a regular form of mental training using tools such as meditation and mindful awareness has the potential to transform our self and our mental habits in a positive way. Watch this TedTalk if you are curious about meditation, mindfulness and consciousness all while loving scientific data and research.
This TedTalk is one of my favorite and it sure will blow your mind. In this 20 minutes long video, Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor talks about how she one day realized she was having a massive stroke : an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for. As it happened — as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding – she experienced a very unorthodox enlightenment. Watch this TedTalk if … just watch it period.
That’s it for now tribe ! I hope that you enjoyed these TED Talks about spirituality, let me know what you think and which one was your favorite by leaving a comment below.
