The Everyday Sublime podcast explores a full spectrum spirituality. Each week begins with a dharma talk, and each month Josh has an in-depth conversation with a thought leader in the field. As Stephen Batchelor says, "the mystical does not transcend the world, but saturates it." www.joshsummers.net
The Wings of Awakening: Dharma Talk and Meditation (Episode 97)
Compassion without wisdom can lead to emotional burnout. Wisdom without compassion can lead to detached apathy. Together they balance and complement each other on the path.

Dr. Judith Blackstone: Healing Within Fundamental Consciousness (Episode 95)
From the safe experience of fundamental consciousness - a consciousness that is awake to, within and beyond the body - we can release and unburden the body's holding of trauma within the fascia.
The Knowing Ungrasps Tanha: Dharma Talk and Meditation (Episode 94)
As the Buddha said, "The rain could turn to gold and still your thirst would not be slaked." In many ways, the entire path pivots on the skillful relationship to desire.
The Heavenly Stings: Dharma Talk and Meditation (Episode 93)
The initial experience of awakening is not often one of calm, serenity, and bliss; rather, the initial encounter is one of waking up to confusion, uncertainty, and despair. We can map our own psychological experience to the mythological story of the Buddha's biography.
Ungrasping This Moment: Dharma Talk and Meditation (Episode 92)
If you let it, reality will wake you up out of your drifting state into a naturally awake state. This transitional pivot is the key moment upon which the entire spiritual path unfolds.
