    Lynn Bell: Astrology, Redemption, and the Aquarian Age of Revolutionary Change | Ep. 18

    Lynn Bell: Astrology, Redemption, and the Aquarian Age of Revolutionary Change | Ep. 18

    Lynn Bell: Astrology, Redemption, and the Aquarian Age of Revolutionary Change. Ep. 18 In this episode of the Wisdom Keeper podcast, I’m delighted to host master astrologer Lynn Bell, whom I affectionately call the Oracle. Lynn and I take a skeptic’s approach to understanding the mechanism underlying astrology, asking how the soul and cosmos interact, and how studying historical patterns, both above and below, can lead us to redemption. Finally, Lynn gives us an astro-forecast for 2024 including the highly anticipated transit of Pluto into Aquarius this November, coinciding with the US elections. The last time this transit took place ushered in the American and French Revolutions. You’ll want to heed the Oracle’s advice on how to prepare to meet this turning point. In this episode Lynn Bell and I discuss: - How a challenge to her eyesight in childhood, became an opportunity to develop a deeper vision and more attuned relationship with the world. - How we can look back on our personal and collective history and patterns to predict future outcomes. - Because every pattern repeats itself in cycles of time, we can always have a chance at repair or redemption. - How the psyche or soul and the cosmos or planetary alignments interact. - How astrology involves being attuned to the environment, and what the moment is presenting, so that we can skillfully choose how to respond. - The signature of the outgoing Piscean age and the incoming Aquarian age. - How to purposefully re-interpret and work with the challenges of our age such as misinformation, AI, socio-political division, civil unrest, and structural collapse. - The Astro forecast for 2024 including the anticipated transition of Pluto into Aquarius in November during the US election, and the American and French Revolutions that transpired the last time this transit occurred. - Lynn’s parting message of tolerance for cognitive dissonance, remembering our common humanity, and staying in the vibration of compassion over fear.

    Dr. Robert Gilbert: Rosicrucianism, Spiritual Warfare, and Our Global Ascension | Ep. 17

    Dr. Robert Gilbert: Rosicrucianism, Spiritual Warfare, and Our Global Ascension | Ep. 17

    In this episode of the Wisdom Keeper podcast, I’m delighted to be joined by Dr. Robert Gilbert a leading scholar of Western esotericism and sacred geometry, particularly the Rosicrucian tradition of mystical Christianity. Using ancient cosmological maps Robert locates our human civilization entering a period of darkness and fragmentation co-emerging with a dramatic expansion of consciousness and global ascension. Robert and I converse about the hidden dimensions of unseen beings, angels, and deities, as well as the similarities between the Tibetan Buddhist tantras and the Rosicrucian path of bio-geometry each repatterning the energy flow in our subtle-body nervous system so we can fulfill our purpose as incarnate souls in the world. I know you’ll enjoy Robert’s wealth of knowledge and coherent synthesis as much as I do. In this episode Robert and I discuss: • The Vedic Yuga cosmology and where we find ourselves in the 25,000-year cosmic cycle. • Entering the Age of Archangel Michael represents the expansion of esoteric knowledge and consciousness. • The signature and call to action of our age: to be highly self-actualized and to forge unique integrations from the fragments of various ancient esoteric knowledge systems. • Origins and character of the Rosicrucian tradition of Christian mysticism. • The secret dimension of unseen angelic beings around us, and the spiritual battle between Luciferian and Satanic forces. • The middle way and middle pilar between spiritual transcendence and worldly attachment. • Similarities across esoteric wisdom traditions East and West including Egypt, Greece, India, and Tibet. • Energy or yogic practices from Buddhist tantra to Rosicrucianism designed to open our heart center, help us remember who we are, and fulfill our life’s purpose. Robert J. Gilbert, Ph.D., has a multi-faceted scientific and spiritual studies background. He is a former U.S. Marine Corps Instructor in Nuclear-Biological-Chemical Warfare Defense and holds a Ph.D. in International Studies. Dr. Gilbert has since 1985 conducted independent research into spiritual science to understand the non-physical basis of consciousness and the material world, drawing on the hidden initiation teachings & practices of great traditions worldwide. He has also extensively researched vibrational sciences and new energetic healing technologies. Dr. Gilbert holds the distinction of being the first non-Egyptian authorized to teach the new science of BioGeometry, developed by Dr. Ibrahim Karim of Cairo, Egypt. BioGeometry offers practical applications of Shape, Sound, Color, Motion, Angle, Number, and Proportion to harmonize life energy and benefit all living beings, as demonstrated at the Egyptian National Research Centre in projects conducted in the early 1990s. Dr. Gilbert recently released a new series entitled Sacred Geometry & Spiritual Science on the Gaia channel, revealing many hidden patterns that guide and control our lives on Earth. Dr. Gilbert's organization is the Vesica Institute for Holistic Studies, which offers online training in holistic health and personal development at www.vesica.org.

    Rob Preece: Tibetan Buddhist Tantra, Carl Jung, and Working with Trauma | Ep. 15

    Rob Preece: Tibetan Buddhist Tantra, Carl Jung, and Working with Trauma | Ep. 15

    In this episode of the Wisdom Keeper Podcast I’m delighted to be joined UK-based psychotherapist, Tibetan Buddhist teacher, prolific author, and tangka painter Rob Preece. Rob shares with us the back story of his meeting his guru, the late, Charismatic Tibetan teacher Lama Yeshe, and then offers a compelling explanation of the essence of Buddhist tantra. We then meander into the world of Jungian psychology, rich with archetypes, the shadow, and movement towards integration of opposites. Finally, Rob shares with us the innovations he has made over the years making tantric practice relevant to the western mindset and our collective fragmentation, including working with the body, processing trauma, and connecting with our fundamental Buddha nature. If you enjoy the intersection between Tantra and Jung, this will be a conversation not to be missed. In the episode Rob and I discuss: • Meeting his guru the late Lama Yeshe and his dynamic style of teaching • The importance of balancing guru-devotion with reliance on the inner guru • The essential nature of Tibetan Buddhist tantra • The shortcomings and limitations of teaching classical tantra to Western students • Carl Jung, the archetypes, and the necessity of working with the shadow • Where Tantra and Jung converge and depart • The unique psychological needs of Western students and avoiding spiritual bypassing • Innovations Rob has made to the Tantric methodology that allow students to process trauma • Rob’s extensive book series featuring his synthesis of Jungian shadow-work and Tantric deity practice.
