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
Ballast in the Storm | Short Reflection with Josh
"We can and must, each of us, individually, be a ballast, a reminder of what is good and right, of peace and justice, of supporting the environment, of trusting in individual experiences, voices, choices and stories." - Nadia Colburn
Bahiya's Burning Doubt | Short Reflection with Josh
"Then, Bahiya, you should train yourself thus: In reference to the seen, there will only be the seen. In reference to the heard, only the heard. In reference to the sensed, only the sensed. In reference to the cognized, only the cognized. That is how you should train yourself." - Buddha
The Yin-Yang Heart | Dharma Talk with Josh
"Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud." --Thich Nhat Hanh
Compassion Amidst Crisis | Dharma Talk with Josh
"It is not billionaires or technology that will save us, but instead a 'vitalist mass movement,' driven by human spirit that may actually be magical enough to change hearts and minds across the world." - Amitav Ghosh
Deracialization and Antiracism | Amiel Handelsman
"Racial essentialism keeps racism alive. The more entrenched racial categories are in the public mind, the easier it is for white power advocates to use them for their own nefarious purposes--and for the rest of us to slip into old stereotypes and cognitive biases." - Amiel Handelsman
Deracializing Consciousness | Dharma Talk with Josh
"Because, as the first line of the Dhammapada says, 'All that we are is the result of what we have thought,' the transformation of 'sociological and psychological structures' must take place initially in our own minds - and those of others - if we truly hope to address the root cause of social suffering." - Charles Johnson
Best of Yin & Meditative Content out there
Josh’s 30 years of exploring the meditative path shine through brightly in how he shares his stories and reflections on topics of yin yoga, meditation and related content. His brilliant use of analogy and commitment to honest and academic examination of theory & pedagogy are rare and refreshing!
It is refreshing to have a podcast episode that goes right into the substance of the topic without all the filler-talk. I love these short, but extremely substantive talks. They are very relevant, informative, and spot on. KUDOS!!!!!
Love this podcast
Look forward to every episode. Insightful and thoughtful—masterful!
