I’m a big fan of lifelong learning. I’m always up for something new. A cursory look at my CV would show that I haven’t exactly been focused in my education. There’s no one track. it’s more of a smorgasbord of sub Which is probably why I’m an avid follower of the DailyOM.
DailyOM was founded in 2004 by Madisyn Taylor and Scott Blum, and was born out of their desire to bring the world together by offering messages of consciousness and awareness to people of all walks of life.
I’ve signed up to and paid for at least half a dozen of their courses. I get the daily or weekly emails with instructions on what to do and I promptly file them for when I have time. I should be more than halfway through a 52-lesson reflective writing course but I’ve yet to start it. I should by now have great biceps (or was it triceps) and be able to sit cross-legged while reaching back to touch the floor. I can’t of course, but it’s nice to know the potential is there. In a folder marked COURSES.
The top 10 courses on their site (presumably by the number of people who’ve signed up for them) are:
- Narcissistic Relationships – From Surviving to Thriving
- Fascia Flows to Free Your Body
- Anti-Aging Face Yoga
- Shedding Your Menopausal Middle in 10 Days
- A Year of Writing to Uncover the Authentic Self
- Somatic Exercises to Relax and Release
- How to Parent Like A Buddhist
- The Japanese Art of Happy Money
- A Year to Clear What is Holding You Back!
- Heal Your Soul by Letting Go of Emotional Addiction
The one that caught my attention today is #8. I mean, who doesn’t want a healthier relationship with money?
This course by bestselling author and money expert Ken Honda shows you how to finally take control of your emotional relationship with money by learning the specific ways that money affects your emotions and identifying which patterns are specifically at work in your life. This journey will take you through all the experiences, both happy and difficult, that created the set of beliefs you now hold about money, many of which may be limiting you from reaching your true potential. By taking this course, you’ll heal past “money wounds” and you might even change your career or reevaluate some of your relationships, so that money becomes a source of happiness in your life.
It all sounds a little airy-fairy, doesn’t it, but then, the Japanese seem to have mastered life’s holistics.
The secret of DailyOM workshops is that they’re relatively affordable. You can pay $19, $35, or $55. And if you’re prepared to put in the time, you’ll no doubt learn something from them. I’ll let you know when I get around to starting one (or finishing one).
I’ve signed up to their daily newsletter; it’s always worth a read if for little other reason than it takes me out of my reality for a few minutes and makes me reflect. Seven times out of out ten, the message seems to have been written for me, for that day, for that particular reminder I needed.
Am grateful that in a world of fake news, bad news, and worse news, Madisyn Taylor took the time to build this site.
If you’re looking for some diversion, it’s worth a peek.
