    #79 - Introduction To "Behind The Curtain"

    #79 - Introduction To "Behind The Curtain"

    From an evolutionary, neuropsychological and spiritual perspective Behind The Curtain: Cultivating Conscious Awareness explores the concept of ‘Identity’: why it’s malleable, why we lose it, what happens when we do and how to build a new one. Tom utilises anecdote, narrative, mythology, robust psychological research as well as spiritual ‘truths’ and evolutionary frameworks to explain what it means to be human, in so far as we can conceptualise ourselves.

    Behind The Curtain aims to solve perhaps the most fundamental question itching beneath the surface of every existentialist’s skin: “What is the meaning of life?” Across multiple levels of analysis, Tom believes the answer to that question comes down to cultivating meaning within our own lives. Tom’s contention is that meaning is constructed, not found, through what an individual decides to give the most meaning to—what he or she chooses to value above all else. Thereby through the formation of a value hierarchy, purposeful action manifests itself and existential—let alone nihilistic—angst is reduced.

    Tom shares his personal experiences and journey: his pain, anxiety, mental health issues and recovery as a way of exploring the personal and collective psyche. He hopes to convey the importance of clarity and goal-directed behaviour—life jackets that help keep individuals afloat whilst swimming within the sea of life’s infinite potential for action. Ultimately, the best way to find a path is to create one.

    #77 - From Church And Relationship To Freedom of Self With Zach Jewell

    From Zach's Website - https://www.intothedarkblue.com/

    Join us as we pair what it means to be masculine in today's world with carefully curated adult beverages. A pub-talk, of sorts, where open and honest dialogue can shed light on men's mental health issues. Promoting positive masculinity whilst attempting to find correlations between the drink and the stigma, if any. 

    Here, where you come from matters. How you're moving forward matters, too. Somewhere in between, before, and after makes up this Dark Blue. It's a bit of the unknown coalescing into how we shape the things we think we know. Are you man enough to journey Into the Dark Blue?
