    A Journey to Death and Back Again - A Conversation with Zak Khan

    A Journey to Death and Back Again - A Conversation with Zak Khan

    In the first in a series of conversations with some of the "shifters" featured in my book Extraordinary Awakenings, I speak to Zak Khan, who underwent an amazing transformational experience while seriously ill with cancer. Zak died for a short time, and his description of the dying process is profound and inspiring. His encounter with death brought about a spiritual awakening that changed his life radically. He has lost all fear of death, and has faced his ongoing health challenges with acceptance.

    Returning to the Present

    Returning to the Present

    Steve reads several spiritual poems, including 'The Alchemy of Attention,' 'None of this is now,' 'You can only be sure of the present,' and 'Your being belongs to the present.' Steve leads a short meditation to recapture the natural state of presence that children experience. Our bodies are always in the present, even if our minds are not, and when we bring our attention back into the present, it always feels right, as if we are coming back home.

    Becoming Present

    Becoming Present

    How can we learn to live in the present? Why do human beings find it difficult to live in the moment? What are the obstacles that stop us becoming present? We explore some of these obstacles - such as thought-chatter, rushing and unnecessary activity - and I suggest how we can overcome them, with a 'gentle mental nudge' back into the present. I lead a presence meditation, bringing our awareness into our different senses. This episode includes the poetic pieces 'The Two Worlds,' 'The Alchemy of Attention' and 'The Clear Light of the Present.'

    Oneness with the Body

    Oneness with the Body

    In this podcast, Steve reads three poems (two from The Clear Light, one unpublished) and guides you through short meditative exercises, helping you to integrate with the body and sense its sacredness. We should see the body as sacred, as an expression of spirit. We should integrate it into our spiritual practice, and appreciate all of the miraculous things it does to keep us healthy and alive.

Steve discusses the idea of 'panspiritism' from his book Spiritual Science. He then (at 7.30) leads you through a meditation to cultivate a state of oneness. He finishes with a reading of his poem 'The Essence.'
