Enlist yourself for the good stuff here
authored, with loads of love & thought, by Chetan Narang
I know that it’s been a while since we last spoke here. Over the past several weeks, I have been working towards The Unlearning Playground 2.0 and I can sense that it’s coming to fruition finally.
Every big change, every new birth we give in this world is of course preceded by discomfort and its close cousin – resistance. If fetuses could speak, I’m sure they would debate coming out of the womb; it’s all so comfortable after all. But as the adult on the other side should (and probably also would) tell them, “Embrace this discomfort little one, for there is Life here that you do not want to miss out on.“
Much along the same lines, I have decided to embrace the discomfort of change, and based on many personal meditation sessions, conversations and feedbacks from friends, family & active consumers, I am changing The Unlearning Playground in a big way.
So, with the latest episode of The Unlearning Playground podcast, I bid adieu to season 1 & my old ways of sharing content along with it.
To spill the beans a bit, some changes to my content should already be visible to you in the form of the new short videos I’ve been sharing over the past week or so on Instagram and YouTube.
Additionally, the website is undergoing an update as I write this, and the new version should be available in the weeks to come.
The biggest update, however, is the launch of my new series of content – Ask a human, not an AI. Check out the link below and you’ll know more. I’m personally super psyched about this one.
That’s about it.
One more thing that excites the romantic in me today is the fact that I end season 1 on episode 42, which is the answer to the ultimate question of course (If you know, you know)
Check out the episode, check out everything else from the unlearning playground you may have missed out in the previous weeks or months, and I hope some of it moves you enough to share it with your community.
I hope to see you in the playground soon.
Until next time.
Enough. These few words are enough. If not these words, this breath. If not this breath, this sitting here. This opening to life we have refused again and again, until now. Until now. - David Whyte
What I am reading these days
The master and his emissary, by Iain McGilchrist
I am super psyched about this book at the moment. The author is walking me through the fundamental differences between our left and right brains, describing in much detail how most of what we learn about this topic in pop science is extremely limited and even wrong at times.
He’s also explaining how the imbalance between the two hemispheres of our brains is actually one of the fundamental reasons why our society is the way it is, at our moment in history.
I’ve only read about a fifth of it as of now, but his realisations seem to be so close to my heart and my work at the unlearning playground that I can see it influencing my dialogues in a big way going forward.
I’ll talk more about this when we speak the next time.
