    Third Way Consciousness

    Third Way Consciousness

    "We are here to awaken from the illusion of separateness," says Thich Naht Hahn.  In a culture hell bent on separateness, canceling, disassociation, shaming, and division, no wonder we are having such a hard time.  In this episode, I'd like to begin a conversation about the Third Way, a way that emerges between the poles.  I hope you hear something that helps.  Thanks for all your support. Enjoy

    Disconnect from the Machine

    Disconnect from the Machine

    Crisis means "turning point," an opportunity, as much as a struggle.  This week I discuss practical ways of unplugging from the machine, finding some deeper source, which is needed now more than ever.  "What if you gain the whole world and forfeit your soul?" How do we return to what matters in an age that is deciding for us, what to think, what to buy, what to protest, what to post, what to care about, what to promote, what flag we should fly, and who we should be.  Time for a Sabbath from all this nonsense.

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!

Insightful

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!!

Pondering

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.
