Have you wanted to learn more about philosophy and spirituality but felt intimidated by Ancient Greek or Sanskrit? Is it too embarrassing to admit that we are more than the body? Are you afraid to bring up reincarnation over coffee?

Well we love coffee. And Plato, Buddhism and Sri Ramana Maharshi. And we think these teachers and systems have some use today.

This is the Be Where How? Show: mystic philosophy made practical.

I’m Bob, speaking weekly with Scott and Ryan. We’re conscious creatives, and formerly closeted mystics, trying to unpack the inaccessible.

    009: Autobiography of a Yogi

    009: Autobiography of a Yogi

    Diving into Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual masterpiece, “Autobiography of a Yogi”: we echo his points on spiritual vessel-hood as a deliberate progression, and that contemplative practices are for all, not just sadhus in Himalayan caves. It’s a book that touched Steve Jobs, George Harrison, and basically every spiritual person of the last seventy years, including the three of us. This year is the centennial of Yogananda’s arrival in America (1920), and so as Americans entranced by Eastern philosophy and his life’s work, we are completely indebted.

    007: Spirituality in Social Action & Allyship

    007: Spirituality in Social Action & Allyship

    The current racial and cultural climate in America is extremely inspiring, and the Be Where How? collective stands in solidarity with black liberation and equality for all communities of color in America. As three white men, we talk about how other white folks can best understand allyship and social action through a spiritual lens: namely through listening, amplification, and conscious evolution.

    006: Death: Dust, Hell, or Reincarnation?

    006: Death: Dust, Hell, or Reincarnation?

    In the "Death" episode, we talk about what we want done with our bodies—tree body urns are the clear winner—as well as reflecting on those we've lost, near-death experiences, and how world cultures deal with death. Do we just become dust, is it heaven vs. hell, or what about reincarnation?

    005: Defining Nondual

    The last of the three definitions episodes: “nondual” is all about One Only, not two. From Advaita Vedanta to A Course in Miracles to glimmers in other systems, we untangle the headiness of the illusion and how to live in it, despite its unreality.

    004: Unpacking Christianity

    It was the Monday after Easter and we wanted to talk about Jesus—what we liked about our Christian upbringings, and why we’re no longer churchgoers. Includes an intro to Bible scholarship, love for Bart Ehrman and the Gnostics.

Great Resource for Introducing or Expanding Spirituality.

This podcast is super helpful if you’re curious about spirituality and want to learn more about different traditions and practices. The hosts do a nice job of blending information with personal experience. Most concepts are covered in the individual episodes, but if you’re coming in completely cold you might want to listen to some of the early episodes that go over some core concepts. The format is loose, friendly, conversational and the information is delivered with an abundance of passion and enthusiasm.

Practical and Down-To-Earth

Love the topics of conversation and how they are approached, as well as the real life examples and discussion. And I love that there is often a comedic undertone. Makes it feel very relaxed and easy to relate to. Definitely would recommend!
