How to Befriend Your Ego
On our path to enlightenment, we are all eventually going to wrestle with our own egos. This week's guest, meditation teacher and app designer Jay Vidyarthi is the founder of Still Ape, the world's first user-experience design studio focused exclusively on mindfulness, compassion, and wellbeing. However, not too long before working in the world of digital wellness, Jay had dreams of becoming a rock star. He dropped out of college in his early 20s to tour with his band, but soon Jay found out that his rock-star expectations were about feeding his ego, so he began the long process of grappling with, and befriending his ego.
