    Finding home in awakened heart with Silas Rose

    Finding home in awakened heart with Silas Rose

    041 The longing for home and belonging runs deep, especially in times of uncertainty, crisis and change.  Home is a place of comfort and safety and the container of our dreams. However, comfort can also become a thick cocoon made up of habitual patterns, relationships and emotions cultivated over years and decades. To know our deeper purpose and truth we eventually need to give up the familiar reference points of home.  
    In this short monologue Silas explores the complex emotions around home provoked by a recent move as well as the paradox of discovering awakened heart after chasing the wrong dream.

    Teaching Bravery: The education of compassionate warriors with Noel McLellan

    Teaching Bravery: The education of compassionate warriors with Noel McLellan

    040 Next to home school is where children and teens spend most of their time. Teachers have a profound influence on their students, in a way that goes beyond the mere imparting of knowledge.  Educators are the ambassadors and elders of the culture, capable of passing on the positive values and aspirations of society, but also the collective anxieties and fears.  By tuning into the innate awareness and compassion of learners teachers can inspire the next generation to be brave, open and loving no matter how uncertain the future may be.
    In this episode I speak with Noel McClellan, educator and author of Teaching Bravery: Meditation and heart advice for teachers about self care, embodied awareness and the inner path of teaching and effective parenting.  We also discuss the role of mindfulness meditation for transforming the learning environment from stress and overwhelm to deep connection and trust in basic goodness.

    Authentic Relating: Revealing your truth on the first date with Ryel Kestano

    Authentic Relating: Revealing your truth on the first date with Ryel Kestano

    039 The promise of online social platforms was access to an infinite pool of new friends and possible mates.  However, rather than making the search for love easier, the apps have trained our brains to select mates based on the shallowest metrics. For anyone with a heartfelt desire to find love the daily grind of swiping left and right can feel soul destroying. Authenticity and real intimacy requires letting go of our curated online personas and masks to reveal the truth of our inner experience at every stage of relationship.
    In this episode of Awake In Relationship I speak to the cofounder and lead coach of Authentic Relating Training International Ryel Kestano about using the tools and practice of Authentic Relating in the murky realms of dating. We also discuss the role of curiosity and following the thread of aliveness in conversations to quickly build trust and connection on the first date.

    Reawakening the village heart and mind in the climate crisis with Brandy Gallagher

    Reawakening the village heart and mind in the climate crisis with Brandy Gallagher

    038  Ecovillages are an innovative model of living that integrates the needs for affordable housing, livelihood and community into natural systems.  Intentional communities often begin with a powerful idealistic vision, but many fail when confronted with the realities of complex human relationships and power dynamics.  We evolved over thousands of years in intimate groups sharing resources, but now one third of us live alone. To successfully transition to a low carbon, sustainable future, we first need to rediscover the heart of the village and cultivate a cooperative culture.
    In this episode of Awake In Relationship I speak with Brandy Gallagher, educator and executive director of OUR Ecovillage about the evolution of the ecovillage movement, permaculture design and deep adaptation.  We also discuss the realities of living in community including power dynamics and conflict, as well as the potential for finding a way of life filled with connection and belonging.

    REWIND; The Lover archetype in dangerous times with Indrus Piche

    REWIND; The Lover archetype in dangerous times with Indrus Piche

    037  In this episode we celebrate Valentines day by digging into Awake In Relationship's back catalogue to replay an early interview about the Lover archetype with Indrus Piche. 

    There is nothing like a pandemic and 2 years of social distancing to make one yearn for the presence of the beloved. Regardless if one is single or partnered the lover archetype can be both a source of tremendous inspiration or the agent of our own undoing.

    The shadow aspect of the Lover is present in many negative habitual patterns of relationship,  By skillfully embracing and integrating our desires, rather than suppressing them, it is possible to reclaim the transformational power of the Lover in everyday life.

    In this episode we talk with Indrus Piche, a transpersonal therapist, couples counsellor and sacred sexuality teacher about the power of archetypes and path of Lover in dangerous times.

    ON AIR: Why Awake In Relationship? with Silas Rose

    ON AIR: Why Awake In Relationship? with Silas Rose

    036 ON AIR is a pithy monologue by Silas Rose, the host of Awake In Relationship, exploring topics arising from guest interviews and current affairs.  In this segment Silas reintroduces the podcast for new listeners.
    February marks the 2 year anniversary of AIR. The show launched in the wake of some big personal losses and a global pandemic. The inspiration or 'why' of Awake In Relationship comes from a realization that many of the relationships we have relied on for generations of stability, comfort and wellbeing are in serious disrepair or breaking down in these times of change.
    We have been social distancing for a while, long before Covid. If we want a better world we need better relationships. The ‘awake’ in Awake In Relationships speaks to a quality of awareness that acknowledges our intrinsic goodness and worthiness of love in its many magical forms. Through practicing the art of connection in daily life a saner, more compassionate world is possible.
