Super Attractor with Gabby Bernstein

podcast Jun 11, 2020

Gabrielle Bernstein is the author of more than six bestselling books, including her latest, Super Attractor: Methods for Manifesting a Life Beyond Your Wildest Dreams. That sounds pretty ambitious, but as you will hear from Gabby — pushing, controlling, and “manic manifesting” are actually the biggest blocks to harnessing your super attractor power. In fact, it is our ability to let go and receive that allow abundance in.

The New Enlightenment

podcast Jun 11, 2020

So often we focus our New Year's resolutions on our deficiencies of character or habits, imagining a future with a better job, six-pack abs, or a fulfilling relationship. Today, I ask you to extend this intention practice outside yourself and ask a bigger question, “What is your vision for the world you want to live in?” What are the attributes of that society? What are its values?


Hey, It’s Jeff. And welcome to a new decade of the Commune podcast.  

Happy new year to everyone. This is the time of year when we reflect, take a personal inventory and make resolutions for the year ahead. So often these resolutions address deficiencies of our character or our habits based on an imagined future, a future with perhaps a better job, six-pack abs, a fulfilling relationship. Today, I ask you to extend this intention practice outside yourself and ask a bigger question, “What is your vision for the world you want to live in?” Really take some time and...

The Words That Moved Me

podcast Jun 11, 2020

Pull up a chair by our digital fireside as Jeff reads three pieces that influenced him this year — a letter from spiritual teacher Ram Dass, a speech by Robert Kennedy, and a short story from singer-songwriter Portia Nelson. We hope these words move you, too.


Hey, it’s Jeff and welcome to the Commune podcast. While part of me wishes you are listening to this in real time huddled with your family in front of a crackling fire and an old radio, mug of hot cider in your hand, I suspect you’re on a highway or a treadmill. Nevertheless, it’s Christmas time and while you might not be listening to this during the holiday season, I hope you’ll indulge my 1940’s inspired fantasy. I suppose it’s just a strange time of year as we ponder how we went from celebrating the birth of a spiritual prophet in Nazareth to waiting for a cheery, rotund man from the North Pole to shoot down our chimney. Really, I just want to express my gratitude to all of you...

Restorative Justice

podcast Jun 11, 2020

Our culture typically defines justice through the lens of crime and punishment. Violate the law and you will be punished. But how does justice address the victim? Are they to be healed through revenge? Today, you will hear the courageous story of Marlee Liss, who sought an alternative path for justice after being sexually assaulted — a path of compassion and transformation.

Healing Society’s Addictions with Russell Brand (Part 2)

podcast Jun 11, 2020

This is Part 2 of a two-part series on recovery with Russell Brand.

Last week we explored how 12-step recovery can be applied to the addictions in our lives, but can the same model work with our society? Can we collectively recognize a problem, commit to change, undertake a thorough inventory, recognize patterns, and create a culture of service? Today we take the 12-steps one step further — from personal to communal.

Freedom from Addiction with Russell Brand (Part 1)

podcast Jun 11, 2020

This is Part 1 of a two-part series on recovery with Russell Brand.

Very few of us are free from some form of addiction — alcohol, sugar, sleeping pills, sex, Instagram, co-dependent relationships, the list goes on. Russell points out that all our addictions stem from a common problem: spiritual disconnection. But when we admit we have a problem, believe in real change, accept help from others, and hand over our will and control to a higher power, we can begin to find freedom from our addictions.

What's in a Thought?

podcast Jun 11, 2020

We spend our entire lives having thoughts, but because no one else can hear them we can fool ourselves into thinking they don't matter unless we act on them. But the tone and word choices of our inner dialogue are incredibly important. Today's episode offers Commune course excerpts from three teachers – Lauren Zander, Danielle LaPorte, and Brendon Burchard – on how to cultivate thought patterns that uplift your life.

The Off-site Perspective

podcast Jun 11, 2020

We recognize the importance of self-reflection, but there is also tremendous value in stepping back as a business or a family to contemplate the bigger picture, the higher purpose, the deeper “why” behind it all. As we embark on our first company off-site, here are some thoughts on the value of briefly disengaging from the “world of the 10,000 things.”

Advice for Advocates

podcast Jun 11, 2020

Today’s show is about what it means to be an advocate: why and how and with what intention we should speak up for the causes we care about.

We’ve pulled excerpts from three Commune courses:
• Finian Makepeace talks about the importance of the “second person” who makes an idea available to new, broader audiences.
• Marianne Williamson shares with us the difference between “speaking up” and “tearing down.”
• Suzanne Sterling offers advice for how to discover the authentic voice that lives within you.

We hope this episode gives you some tools and motivation to speak up with compassion—for yourself and for others. As Marianne Williamson says, “There's no religious or spiritual tradition anywhere that gives anyone a pass on addressing the suffering of other sentient beings.”

All of these courses are represented in the Commune Summit! Sign up for free at onecommune.com/summit.

Thoughts on Happiness

podcast Jun 11, 2020

What comes after the job, the money, the power? Why do we seek these things if not, in the end, for happiness? And is happiness simply a chemical symphony in the brain that we can hack into, or does true contentment lie somewhere ineffably beyond our physiology? Today, Jeff offers an orchestrated monologue of his thoughts on happiness.


Devon: Happiness means to me that my internal condition is in alignment with my external circumstances and that I feel a connectedness between those two.

Megan: I find happiness through letting go of my strong grasp of expectations.

Devon: I find happiness when I'm present in the moment because I'm not looking into the future and over analyzing the past. I can realize that everything in this moment is exactly what it's meant to be and that I'm OK. 

Megan: I find happiness through listening, instead of responding. 

Devon: There's nothing left to be done. I don't need anything. I realized that I truly have all that I'd ever need and I'm not...
