    Ep.49- Transforming Fear w/ Matt Turner (BeLoveHealings.com)

    Matt Turner has been on what he calls his healing journey for 17 years. Let me be the first to say that it shows. He is an encyclopedia of spiritual insights, and a great example of what it looks like to work on yourself for nearly two decades. This is his 3rd appearance on my podcast so that should tell you how much I love talking to him. You will for sure find something in this episode to take with you on our own healing journey.

    Ep47-Ghosts, Aliens, and What Is (Church of Whatever w/Josh and Palmer)

    Ep47-Ghosts, Aliens, and What Is (Church of Whatever w/Josh and Palmer)

    Every now and then, you meet fellow travelers who have often explored some of the same paths as you. Sometimes they've gone further. Josh and Palmer are two of my favorite explorers to talk to, because of conversations like this. We start out talking about ghosts and aliens, but ultimately end up in the familiar space of the present moment. Mindfulness. I hope that this podcast will help you find peace in not knowing, and happiness in chaos. Let's continue to ask the hard questions together.

    Ep.46- Palmer Saves The Internet.

    Ep.46- Palmer Saves The Internet.

    In today's episode, Palmer and I discuss his idea for an app that would probably change the world, and that leads into many facets of conversation about the internet. How it's structured, how people make money on it, and how some of those things need improvement. I believe that this is an important conversation for everyone to participate in, being that we all use the internet. Whether that's for you business, art, social life, or all of the above.

    Ep.45- Let's Talk About Sin (Church of Whatever w/Palmer)

    Ep.45- Let's Talk About Sin (Church of Whatever w/Palmer)

     The Church of Whatever is a segment dedicated to spiritual concepts, and a lot of the ideas we grew up learning about. Could we have missed something? Is it possible that some of the ideas that we've rejected have actual value in our lives? Well, we intend to dig deep, and search for meaning where it's been lost in order to see what we can learn through deconstructing some of the most foundational beliefs that we've held at certain points in life. 

     This conversation between Palmer and I is about Sin. That word carries a lot of weight, and means a lot of different things to different people. My hope is that this conversation causes you to think about what it means to you, and perhaps find healing from a new perspective on an ancient version of morality. Enjoy!
