Inspiring and Informative

These are incredibly inspiring and informative podcasts. They stand out for two reasons. One is the teachers that are interviewed. They're open and straightforward about their spiritual path and what they found, and they have insightful observations about what's useful, and not so useful, in the search. The other reason is that the interviewer, Shawn Nevins, listens well and asks penetrating questions that draws out each teacher's unique perspective and insights. I highly recommend them for anyone interested in the spiritual path.
