@ye @coyotespike @dschorno full disclosure, i have worked with Tiago in the past and still do from time to time (including blogging for Praxis)

@ye @coyotespike more or less, but if you take that approach it's a DIY approach, you'll have to implement it yourself, whereas the course holds your hand and takes you step by step with exercises

@dschorno well, since you asked, yes, i do, and it literally paid for itself for me in job offers + business i wouldn't otherwise have had. can't guarantee you'll have the same experience but i highly recommend the course

@ye @coyotespike There are cheaper ways to learn BASB, e.g. subscribe to Praxis $10/month

FYI for those reading @vgr ‘s latest AMA and are curious about a curated newsletter list these are my progressively highlighted notes on them. Starred the ones I particularly liked. (Brain-bicycle was also one of my favorites)


Who are the most interesting people you've met on Mastodon?

@vgr Gotcha. Thanks for the feedback! I'll do that next time.

The Burja Mapping series has five posts now, which form a fairly complete introduction to the field of Empire Theory and Power Mapping. Now's a good time to catch up if you have fallen behind.


@msweet Hope you're having fun with concentration practice. Are you familiar with Shinzen? Some of his most useful advice is: "If distracted, use labels (preferably spoken); if concentrated, look for reward flavor."

@polychrome I don't have to much love for Telegram but it seems to me the main thing it has going for it is these public/private groups things that are easy to join + leave
