Raghu Markus – Mindrolling – Ep. 502 – Conscious Living, Conscious Dying with Carol Sanford & Gagan (Jared) Levy

Bestselling author Carol Sanford and Gagan (Jared) Levy sit down with Raghu Markus for an insightful conversation about transforming our cultural perception of death and infusing consciousness into all aspects of life.

Carol Sanford has been an inspirational catalyst and guide, helping change agents and businesses around the world realize their aspirations to make a difference. Now she needs our help!
Last fall, Carol learned that the cause of a suite of mysterious symptoms she’d been dealing with was amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease)—an inexorably debilitating, ultimately fatal disease. Each month brings changing and expanding needs for multi-specialist medical attention, home retrofitting, access to 24-hour caregivers, special transportation for care, and increasingly sophisticated adaptive technologies and equipment to enable basic life functions – much of which is not covered by insurance.
Carol’s incredible capacity for caring and giving has been a hallmark of her life. The Be Here Now Network asks that you consider making a donation to help make Carol’s care possible. On behalf of all of us who love her, thank you in advance for anything that you can contribute to support Carol and her family through this challenging time: SHOW YOUR SUPPORT TODAY

“I believe we need to change people’s worldview of death and dying and what its purpose is.” – Carol Sanford

In this episode, Raghu and his guests discuss:
  • Opening up our worldview by recognizing the paradigms that are in place
  • The concepts of conscious living and conscious dying
  • Transforming the way we think and talk about the stages of dying
  • Bringing mindfulness into the workplace

“What’s really needed right now is a major culture shift around how we look at death and know overall, it’s like we’re afraid to talk about it. It’s the one thing we all share that we’re all marching towards. We’re all walking each other home, yet we don’t talk about it.” – Gagan Levy
