    Can You Be With the Light AND the Dark?

    Can You Be With the Light AND the Dark?

    In Part Two of a Three-Part holiday short series, David invites listeners to lean into both the light and the dark during the darkest, most receptive time of year in the Northern Hemisphere. He discusses the irony of nature asking us to slow down during these cold winter months even as we are culturally conditioned to be active and on-the-go in preparation for yet another busy holiday season. Ultimately, shares David, bringing the light into the dark, small though the crack of light may be, can cultivate ease in the midst of the hustle and bustle of this year.

    Authenticity and the Path to What Really Matters

    In this step-back solo episode, David reflects on the A Conscious Way Forward podcast at the one-year anniversary of its launch. He urges listeners to forget the age-old question, "What are we doing with our lives?" and instead ask, "What are we BEING with our lives?" This short episode is a call for honesty, authenticity, sovereignty, and community in the midst of the reality that there will always be another pandemic to distract us from our True North.

    The Unraveling of the Personal Self with Terrence Stephens

    The Unraveling of the Personal Self with Terrence Stephens

    Hold onto your hats! In this episode, David sits down for a mind-blowing conversation with an Australian born teacher and guide of Non-Duality.
    Non-Duality is based on the belief that beneath the diverse experiences of every human, there is a single, infinite and indivisible reality, the nature of which is pure consciousness. According to the Non-Dual teachings, all human actions result from a false belief that they are operating independently from this single reality, this single consciousness. Special guest Terrence Stephens sees his life as a radical fact-finding mission to discover what IS and explores this in-depth with David. 
    If you are interested in inquiring more deeply into your relationship to the mind and the illusion of separation the mind overlays onto every aspect of our lives, this is the episode for you.
