Have you wanted to learn more about philosophy & spirituality but felt intimidated by Ancient Greek or Sanskrit? Is it too embarrassing to admit that we are more than the body? Are you afraid to bring up reincarnation over coffee?

Well we love coffee. And Plato, Buddhism and Ramana Maharshi. And we think these teachers and systems have some use today.

This is the Be Where How? Show.

I’m Bob Peck, speaking regularly with Scott Standley, Ryan Padgett and Melena Kiriaki. We’re conscious creatives, and formerly closeted mystics, trying to unpack the inaccessible.

    025: lzbth.ai — Date Yourself

    Elizabeth Nelson aka @lzbth.ai is a psych major turned graphic designer from Austin, Texas. When she’s not designing, she enjoys learning about maritime disasters, digging through thrift shops, and talking herself out of buying more houseplants. She’s currently freelancing in New York City, beating off the quarantine insanity by going on lots of long walks.

    “Existential crisis meets textbook diagram”, is Elizabeth’s bio, summarizing a lot about where she is right now after the pandemic completely upended her entire life plan. She transmuted this ‘floating consciousness’ into her design work, reaching new success in a new territory. We talk about using the creative process to help unravel our insecurities & vulnerabilities, and how crucial self-love is throughout it all.

    023: Zevi Slavin — Universalism through a Hasidic Lens

    023: Zevi Slavin — Universalism through a Hasidic Lens

    Zevi Slavin is a Hasidic Jewish mystic and content creator of the channel “Seekers of Unity”. Zevi grew up in Australia, moved to LA when he was eighteen, then NY, and Cape Town, South Africa. Now living in Israel, Zevi is an ordained rabbi dedicated to teaching about the beauty of Judaism, philosophy, world mysticism, and all of their many benefits.

    Zevi explains the unique contributions of Jewish mysticism within the world’s mystic traditions—as we discuss, they integrate the legalistic with the ecstatic like no other tradition. They encourage the deification of the human being, and they sound a lot like the Upanishads! The mystic is not separate from God—that line is blurred! Outside of God, nothing else exists.

    Lastly, Zevi walked us through some of his daily practices, and how every aspect of his day is full of intention. His book recs are:


    “The Perennial Philosophy” & “The Doors of Perception” by Aldous Huxley

    “The Unity of Mystical Traditions” by Randall Studstill

    “Nonduality” by David R. Loy

    022: Marie Young — Burnout, Shakti, and the Vagus Nerve

    Marie Young is a body-based coach who helps clients reach their goals by connecting with their bodies and souls first. She has been studying yogic practices for over twenty years, and teaching for nearly ten. Marie empowers clients with grounding techniques and coaching tools so they can live their lives with purpose, passion, and focus.

    We discuss different meditation types, the body, and using physical sensations as a meditative technique. Different spiritual practices: how to find yours, or stick with one, or to listen to when to move on. Toning the vagus nerve (Cranial Nerve 10): the ventral and the dorsal. How scientific research validates a lot of what the 19th and 20th century Hindu swamis talked about. Guru stories. Shakti and Shiva as the Immanent and Transcendent. Chanting as a form of resilience, by amplifying the autonomic response. And then we end on one of Marie’s guided meditation sessions. Her book recs are:

    “Accessing the Healing Power of the Vagus Nerve” by Stanley Rosenberg

    “Chakra Yoga” by Anadea Judith

    “Awakening Shakti” by Sally Kempton

    020: Dr. Aaron Conrado — Gathering Data, Generating Empathy

    020: Dr. Aaron Conrado — Gathering Data, Generating Empathy

    Dr. Aaron Conrado holds a Ph.D. in molecular biology from the University of Texas at Austin. While dedicating himself in graduate school to scientific progress for the betterment of others, he discovered a passion for communicating science to non-scientists, and decided to leave the halls of academia to pursue a career using this newfound talent to address societal problems by creating evidence-based policy solutions. Shortly after graduating, he left his home of Austin, TX and moved to Washington, DC to work on science policy in the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President (The White House).

    Aaron is an old friend of the boys, and despite his secular-minded academic background and professional career as a scientist, he has a refreshingly open outlook on the transcendental. He hasn’t quite “jumped off the cliff”, but science does seem to be moving in closer proximity to spiritual ideals. As a science educator, Aaron’s ask is that we stick to the data, and listen to each other more clearly.

    Dr. Conrado’s book recs are:

    “The Mystic Christ” by Ethan Walker III

    “The Tao Te Ching” by Lao Tzu

    “Merchants of Doubt” by Erik M. Conway and Naomi Oreskes

    “The Collapse of Western Civilization” by Erik M. Conway and Naomi Oreskes

    “Meditations” by Marcus Aurelius

    “Ethics” by Baruch Spinoza

DillonDav ,

Great Resource for Introducing or Expanding Spirituality.

This podcast is super helpful if you’re curious about spirituality and want to learn more about different traditions and practices. The hosts do a nice job of blending information with personal experience. Most concepts are covered in the individual episodes, but if you’re coming in completely cold you might want to listen to some of the early episodes that go over some core concepts. The format is loose, friendly, conversational and the information is delivered with an abundance of passion and enthusiasm.

Practical and Down-To-Earth

Love the topics of conversation and how they are approached, as well as the real life examples and discussion. And I love that there is often a comedic undertone. Makes it feel very relaxed and easy to relate to. Definitely would recommend!
