    Circling Europe co-founder Sean Wilkinson and I explore what it's like to practice across paradigms, the limits and transformational potential of circling, and the interplay between mediation, circling, and trauma work. Sean shares from his experience about the problems with static orientations to practice, subtle grasping to personal growth, and the orientation of trust.

    Sean Wilkinson is a Circling Europe co-founder with an enduring passion for self-awareness, human potential, wisdom traditions and an ongoing inquiry into life. His focus includes extensive academic research, spiritual and psychological practice, coaching, and therapeutic training.

    Circling & Soulmaking with Ellen McSweeney & Daniel Thorson

    Circling & Soulmaking with Ellen McSweeney & Daniel Thorson

    In this episode fellow Monastic Academy resident Ellen McSweeney and I explore the relationship between Circling and Soulmaking in an attempt to make sense of the experience we shared co-facilitating the Anti-Fragile Heart retreat in March. Towards the end there is a Q+A with retreat participants. 

    If you'd like to explore the practice of Circling MAPLE is hosting the SAS 6-month Circling Training starting in June.

    This conversation was recorded in the meditation hall at the Monastic Academy, and the audio is a little wonky...

    Mark Feenstra - Renormaling: Fractal Harmony in Action

    Mark Feenstra - Renormaling: Fractal Harmony in Action

    In this episode Mark Feenstra guides me through his 'accompanying' process. This process, which Mark has developed after 25 years of experimentation, is something like a systems collapse aware mixture of Circling, Internal Family Systems, and Imaginal practice...but really it's totally unique (and very potent!).
    Mark is offering a workshop on this approach on December 11th/12th. If you'd like to join you can click here:

    Layman Pascal - Spiritual Practice as Harmonization

    Layman Pascal - Spiritual Practice as Harmonization

    Layman Pascal is an author, speaker, and body-mind-soul at large in the Integral and Metamodern scenes. 

    In this episode we dive into Layman's 'integration surplus' model of spiritual practice. This model offers an integrative lens through which to view all transformative practices. Through my work at the Monastic Academy I developed a startlingly similar 'harmonization model' of spiritual practice, which forms the conceptual basis of the curriculum for the Willow Intensive. You can learn more about that in this companion episode with John Vervaeke. In this conversation with Layman we explore some of the deeper ramifications and affordances of this way of looking at transformative practice. 

    If you'd like to explore this way of approaching practice more deeply we are offering two online courses:

    Register: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/jade-method-meditation-course-tickets-182814672607

    --------------------------

    In this conversation Layman and I speak about:

    - How the harmony model arose out of Layman’s spiritual & philosophical practice

    - That all spiritual practices can be framed in terms of harmonization, and why that is so significant

    - Why it’s important that this model is ‘ontologically agnostic’

    - The common confusion between harmony and unison

    - The role of meeting conflict in order to reveal a deeper harmony

    - The four fundamental proto-skills to help us harmonize any system

    - How super abundant harmony can help us identify what is valuable and good in any context

    - The value and limitation of awakening, and why it can sometimes lead to unskillful behavior

Helped change how I see the world

This podcast brings together various threads relating to consciousness, development, sense-making, in a way that has helped me to examine how I engage with the world.
There are many great podcasts in the integral/metamodern/sense-making world but this one has something very special.

You have to listen to this...

This podcast will help you to live a more meaningful life, without numbing yourself to the challenges that lie ahead. I can’t recommend it enough.

Blown away by this podcast

This podcast is an amazing find for anyone interested in bridging the worlds of spirituality, politics and social change. I only discovered it a few weeks ago and am steadily working my way through the back catalogue. So many of the discussions are resonating with me really deeply and I feel like I've found a place where conversations are happening that I've been yearning to have. Thanks Daniel for doing such a great job.
