    Episode 16 — A Crash Course in Miracles with Colin Bedell and mizChartreuse

    Episode 16 — A Crash Course in Miracles with Colin Bedell and mizChartreuse

    It’s a great pleasure to welcome not one but two of the most fabulous astrologers I know to the show this week, the inimitable Colin Bedell and mizChartreuse.

    We became acquainted through the astrology conference world and I reached out to have a conversation with them regarding A Course in Miracles, the seminal 1976 book which has been influential in both of their lives and for thousands (if not millions) of other individuals. ACIM has been an influential source text for both of them, and they've got some utterly fantastic insights to share with us.

    My idea for this episode emerged out of my own recent re-engagement with the tradition of New Thought. I think the conversation is a timely one considering Marianne Williamson’s current presidential campaign and the cultural resurgence of conscious living as, gosh, a possible force for changing the world for the better. Could you imagine?
    We've got not one but TWO bonus episodes, one on ACIM & Astrology, and another reflecting on Marianne Williamson's presidential campaign and the role of consciousness in political discourse. Become a patron today to get access to those when they're released: www.patreon.com/jailbreakthesacred

    The conversation covers:

    A little late on the release due to ECLIPSE MANIA, but here we are. It's a privilege to welcome my good friend Andrew Lamont to the show. Andrew is a fiber artist, magician, and astrologer based out of Rhode Island, and today we're sitting down to talk about the process of jailbreaking Catholicism, embodiment and desire, and the importance of ritual work in developing connection to community across the boundaries of space and time. Glad to have a fellow Maryboi on the show.

    Episode 11 — Dismantling Fear with Jo Gleason

    Episode 11 — Dismantling Fear with Jo Gleason

    Today on the show it’s my privilege to welcome my good friend Jo Gleason! Jo is an astrologer, former ballet dancer, and writer based out of Oklahoma City. She currently serves as the vice president of the Association for Young Astrologers.
    This free-form conversation tracks Jo's story through her GOOD CHRISTIAN KID upbringing. We talk about disarming the fear of deconstructing one's beliefs and presuppositions about the world in order to find even deeper foundations in the mystical. Our thread also turns towards a re-emergence of a jailbroken Christianity through the influence of ancestor work and the importance of having ethical guardrails.
