About your host:

Hi, I'm Ben. For a very long time I lived my life by logic and reasoning. I did the things I thought I should be doing to "be happy". The thing was - it didn't make me happy. It was actually in stark contrast to my student days, where I mostly didn't do the things I thought I should be doing, but instead went with the flow and my heart.

That insight made me wonder: what is this thing we call "mind"? Why does my mind have the ability to make me suffer? How do we combine analytical, logical thinking with our sensate experience, gut feeling and all the things we cannot see yet but that already have an effect on us? What's the relationship between my understanding of the world, myself and my actions in the world?

One of the ways for me to engage with these questions is to meditate. Meditation for me is a way to increase the range of experiences in which we are free & happy and a system to break free of all systems. It's also a powerful tool to map out our mind and thus our experience of the world. I've done several week-long retreats, lived in a Buddhist monastery as a layman (Upāsaka) for a while and have a daily 2h meditation practice.

About your host:

Hi, my name is Maxi. When I was a teenager, I often wanted to simply draw or paint by myself. When I grew up, I started more and more appreciating the honest exchange with other people about life, love, all and nothing. So I became an art therapist, an occupation that allowed me to combine art with honest, true-hearted reflection.

When I became a mother, I went through a process of questioning my identity, my self-worth, the way our society works, as well as the so called work-life-balance. Ultimately, I was wondering how all of this can be combined with being human and a human life.

I've got a Bachelors in Arts in Cultural Education from the University of Applied Sciences Niederrhein and a Masters of Arts in Art Therapy from the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin (Weißensee Art University of Berlin). I've led art therapeutic group and individual sessions with children, refugees, adults, and the elderly for over 10 years.

About Deep Breath:

Everyone is human, and everyone has problems. At some point in 2020, some of us humans - who, it turned out, had vast experiences in a vast array of problems - came together to try and help other problem-having humans. So here we are. Are you a human, and do you have at least 1 (one) problem? Maybe we can share our experience, maybe you can share yours, and maybe we can all help each other into a less problematic existence.
