Episode 61: Jaimal Yogis — On Consciousness, Surfing, and Almost Monkhood

I first met Jaimal Yogis when he was a young, up-and-coming journalist, a long-time spiritual seeker, and a surfer. These days he can award-winning writer, three-time book author, and father of three boys under the age of five to his bio. He is such a wonderful writer and his new book, All Our Waves Are Water, is one of the best examples of relating deep meditation practice to the pains and beauty of every day life I have ever read. I am in love with this book and I’m so happy to share this interview with you.

  1. Great episode! Would you recommend reading “Saltwater Buddha” before Yogis’ new book? Or are they fairly independent?

    • I really liked All Our Waves Are Water better. He’s grown as a writer and you can feel it in this book. They’re fairly independent.

  2. Hi,

    Enjoyed this episode along with others! I downloaded his book a few weeks ago and look forward to getting to it. I used to take from Jason years ago at the Loft but now in Marin with two kids – the practice is a little different now. Keep up the great work, fantastic, insightful, authentic podcast.
