The Everyday Sublime podcast explores a full spectrum spirituality. Each week begins with a dharma talk, and each month Josh has an in-depth conversation with a thought leader in the field. As Stephen Batchelor says, "the mystical does not transcend the world, but saturates it." www.joshsummers.net
V for Vendetta: Dharma Talk (Episode 108)
"The untrained mind gets lost and follows these things; it forgets itself, and then we think that it is we who are upset or at ease or whatever. But really, this mind of ours is already unmoving and peaceful." - Ajahn Chah
A Want For Nothing: Dharma Talk (Episode 107)
"But imagine my surprise when, upon surrendering to wanting nothing, I am released from perceiving a lack, awakened by and to a want for nothing, instead."
Jessica Locke: Anti-Racism and Buddhist Practice (Episode 106)
"When everyone is doing better, everyone is doing better. And when life is precious, life is precious. Can we connect with this motivation?" -Jessica Locke
Who Knows Good News Bad News? - Dharma Talk (Episode 105)
"The good only stands out in contrast to something relatively worse; the bad only emerges from a context of relative good. The wise old farmer appears to see life holistically, as a unified totality."
Desire Refined: Dharma Talk (Episode 104)
The transformation of desire is a critical component of the spiritual journey, but this transformation does not necessitate sacrifice and grim acceptance. Aligning one's desire with the deeper quality of the Heart's aspiration can infuse one's practice with vitality and whole-hearted engagement.
Yes, The Unitive Mantra: Dharma Talk (Episode 103)
As Alan Watts put so well, "No one can be moral - that is, no one can harmonize contained conflicts - without coming to a working arrangement between the angel in himself and the devil in himself, between his rose above and his manure below."

Thank you Josh for your amazing podcast.
