Timber Hawkeye is a bestselling author, a podcast producer, a publisher, and an international public speaker, but in person, he is just another friendly face in town.
Hawkeye’s first book, Buddhist Boot Camp, is a collection of journal entries and letters from Hawaii that he had sent to friends over the course of eight years. Even though each chapter is only a page long, it beautifully shares a secular and non-sectarian approach to being at peace with the world (both within and around us).
His follow-up memoir, Faithfully Religionless offers an intimate glimpse into an extraordinary life filled with insight and motivation. In a nutshell, it’s about letting go of the need to know, the difference between feelings and emotions, the disparity between truths and facts, and the countless benefits of mindful living.
Timber’s books and the Buddhist Boot Camp Podcast invite us to lead a life of purpose, congruence, and conviction. His intention is to awaken, enlighten, enrich, and inspire, and I can vouch that reading his books has done exactly that, not just for me, but for thousands all over the world.
Episode Summary: This episode is a great primer into Buddhism and the power of letting go and knowing the difference between your feelings and emotions.
