Conversations about Spirituality, Religion, Doubt, Sacred Texts, Nature, Soul, Love, Death and all the Good Stuff
Iron John and the Sacred Masculine
More in my series, Stuff That Helps! This time, Iron John by Robert Bly. In this episode we explore the opening of the myth Iron John and what it has to teach us about growing up. It's very challenging right now to talk about the masculine, much more what I call the Sacred Masculine. I hope you hear something that helps. Enjoy!
Peter Rollins: The Not-at-Oneness of Reality
The death of God, the unconscious, Freudian slips, why you can't find your keys, are all in this wide ranging conversation with my friend Peter Rollins. You might have to listen more than once. Special thanks to my Patrons for supporting this podcast. It's great to be back after a strange and challenging month for me. Enjoy!
Shouldn't I Be Further Along?
How long does this whole spiritual transformation stuff take? Shouldn't I be enlightened by now? Why is all this old stuff still getting dragged up? Well, let's talk about it.
The Immature Hero and the Second Garden
Here's my Holy Week offering. Enjoy! #hintsandguesses
The Forum (from Jerusalem): Danny Kopp and Gary Alley
Just before the pandemic shut down the world, I recorded a conversation with two friends from Jerusalem while I was leading a tour there, both pastors at the small congregation I attended when I was a student. We dive into what life is like in Jerusalem for Christians, our thoughts and feelings about the ongoing tensions, what it's like to raise kids in such a complex environment and more. Our conversation is completely unscripted and wide-ranging. I hope you hear something fresh and interesting here as we discuss ideas and realities that tend to sharply divide the world in camps. Thanks for being a part of this podcast, for sharing it, for making it happen. Enjoy!
The Forum: Paul Moore
Back to the origins of the podcast with Paul Moore! Hope you enjoy another unscripted conversation, from racism, to meditation, to the nature of how the ego changes.
Very thought provoking
Kent has been a spiritual teacher of mine since I started listening to his podcasts from Mars Hill. The teachings he has presented have made me grow more spiritually than any other teacher.
His teachings have helped me start to heal several “hang ups” I have from growing up in a very fundamentalist church. I am very great full for that.
Please keep the teachings going!
I grew up in an Bible believing home where no one questioned anything. You trusted your pastor and his message. You left church and lived your life. Also going to church twice on a Sunday, being seen in attendance by all the people you knew was the big thing. How empty. Now a parent myself and 45 years old, I’ve found myself confronting all my big questions. Thank you for helping me see that the questions are the journey! I’m so happy to work towards my own truth and not the spoon fed one I’ve inherited. Kent’s wisdom is incredible!!
Kent makes me think. I found this podcast after reading his book “Bitten By a Camel”. His podcasts are thought-provoking, often causing me to have to consider ideas in new ways. I appreciate his openness and honesty. Definitely worth your pondering.
