Conversations about Spirituality, Religion, Doubt, Sacred Texts, Nature, Soul, Love, Death and all the Good Stuff

    The Cult of Identity and the ”True Self”

    The Cult of Identity and the ”True Self”

    I'd like to turn to Thomas Merton's writings on the True Self.  I find his mystical understanding of identity to be counter-cultural, challenging and ultimately hopeful.  I hope you hear a hint or guess from Merton, as I am, for your own descent beneath the ego's demands and stances.  Enjoy!

Puzzle Peices

Kent is such an inspiring teacher and guide, shining a light on details in the pieces of the puzzle I try to put together in this life. It is so refreshing to hear rich conversations and ideas on topics that deserve so much more attention than the shallow one sentence memes on social media. Thanks Kent!

The (Re)Rise of Fundamentalism

Another interesting podcast! I was glad you included a brief history of Fundamentalism as a starter.
