    The Rise Of Messianic Ideology In Modern Culture With John Brooks

    For our first episode of 2021, I bring you a discussion with John Brooks, religion educator and host of Hard To Believe, to discuss the history of messianic cults in Western society, and particularly its resurgence in the 21st century. We discuss the societal shifts that lead to such ideology, the rise of political and UFO cults, the need for people to find a savior, and so much more.

    The Secret To Keeping Your New Year Resolutions

    The Secret To Keeping Your New Year Resolutions

    As 2020 draws to a close, I felt like it was apropos to discuss the secret to keeping your new year resolutions. We often get bogged down by setting goals for ourselves, following some plan or program, and forget the answer to accomplishing our goals is simple - close your eyes, and listen. On this episode we dive into mindfulness, the concept of wuwei, and how to use active imagination to overcome the biggest obstacles to accomplishing our goals - ourselves.

    The Life And Purpose Of The Shaman (Commentary On Terence McKenna And Alan Watts)

    The Life And Purpose Of The Shaman (Commentary On Terence McKenna And Alan Watts)

    Today, we are diving deep into the life and purpose of the shaman and how it relates to modern culture and how the path of the shaman can lead to finding awakening and true gnosis through direct personal experience. To do this, I'll be doing some commentary on two lectures, one from from Terence McKenna and another from Alan Watts, we'll explore different aspects of the life and purpose of the shaman in various cultures and traditions, and what they can tell us about finding a "pathless path" of understanding.

    The Not Quite Pagan Origins Of Christmas

    The Not Quite Pagan Origins Of Christmas

    At this time of year, there is always a lot of discussion about the origins of Christmas and how the early church co-opted many pagan traditions to create what we now consider Christmas, but is this actually true? While there are certainly many cultures and traditions that inspired Christmas, you may be surprised to learn its true origins and how it was even banned as a holiday by certain Christian sects.
