The Delicate Act of Compassionate Acts

Here is a two-part series I created on my podcast, Noetic (formerly Inipi Radio) that articulate my perspective on philanthropy, humanitarianism, altruism, missions, etc. If you are interested in a discussion on "Conscious Philanthropy", and what that could mean, I hope you'll check these out. 

PODCAST

The Noetic podcast is for seekers, thinkers, and doers that care deeply about the vitality of humanity and our planet.
Join us we hold space for an open conversation about wonder, wisdom, and culture.

Lifelong Identity Architect and philanthropist, Jared Angaza holds a space for evocative conversations about culture, spirituality, and what it means to live fully alive.

 

Who are we and why are we here? How do we integrate new and ancient wisdom and ensure that our lives reflect our values and beliefs? What does it mean to live authentically?

 

(I put the podcast on hold in 2020 as I focused on developing Space for Humanity and the Human Space Program. More to come, someday. You can still listen to the old shows, as they are meant to be timeless. Thanks!)

EDUCATION & INSPIRATION

Over the last decade, I've been compiling a list of people, books, films and other teachings that have inspired and informed my perspective. I update it weekly. This is my master list of education and inspiration that has helped shape who I am today. 

WISDOM MEETS PASSION

My father, Dan Miller, is a best selling author on discovering a purposeful, meaningful career. He’s also one of my closest friends. I’m grateful for all he has taught me through the years, and specifically, the perspective he bestowed upon me.

While I was living with my family in Mombasa, Kenya, on the Indian Ocean coast, he asked me to collaborate on a book with him. Naturally, I was honored and excited. Wisdom Meets Passion is the result.


Today we face a unique dichotomy between the wisdom of the Baby Boomer generation and the passion of Generation Y. According to Wisdom Meets Passion, the question is not which is right, but rather how can the two work together?

Wisdom, meet passion. Passion, wisdom.

By bringing these two voices to the issue, this book takes readers through familiar plights, such as understanding the American Dream, the quest for security, and work that matters—regardless of age. Through candid storytelling, Dan Miller and Jared Angaza uncover various generational approaches to work, money, success, and relationships, proving that it is possible to be both passionate and wise.

Order the book (Kindle, iTunes, etc.) here on Amazon.
