Jon Macaskill | Mindfulness & Being Where You Are
On this episode of Return to Base we are pleased to present former U.S. Navy SEAL Commander and the co-host of the Men Talking Mindfulness Podcast, Job Macaskill.Jon served for 26 years in the Navy, mostly in the SEALs, before transitioning in 2020 and embarking on his civilian journey. Along the way, Jon’s journey was altered by a global pandemic and coming to the realization he was working in the wrong industry. YET, Jon followed some sage advice and got a lot of help along the way before realizing that what he was MEANT to do was something he ENJOYED doing. The rest, as they say, is history.While transitioning, Jon was introduced to meditation by a therapist. Skeptical as he was, he gave it a shot and stuck with it. This practice opened his eyes to the concept of mindfulness and the benefits of living in the present. Before long, he partnered with a New York hippie to found the Men Talking Mindfulness Podcast which he airs LIVE on LinkedIn, and in the future, YouTube. Talk about a bold move.To learn more about Jon and the MtM podcast visit https://mentalkingmindfulness.com/Check them out on Instagram at: https://www.instagram.com/mentalkingmindfulness/Connect with Jon on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonmacaskill/ and https://www.linkedin.com/company/men-talking-mindfulness-podcast/Finally, to check out the work Jon is doing with Dr. Theresa Larson and the Mindfulness and Movement Experience, visit www.movement-rx.com/mtm This episode was made possible in part by the good AMERICANS at Black Rifle Coffee Company.
