    Adam Keen - "Teachings and Teachers"

    Adam Keen, host of the Keen on Yoga Podcast, talks with J about the evolution of yoga education and embodying devotion. They discuss behind the scenes podcast stuff, Purple Valley in Goa, nostalgia for earlier days when there was less competition, discovering the Ashtanga Vinyasa method and becoming "authorized," reconciling abuse histories of our teachers, when the linear journey of progress becomes the greatest obstacle, and distinguishing between faith, belief, and devotion in a process of learning to see more honestly.

    Joshua Schrei, host of The Emerald Podcast and creator of The Mythic Body, talks with J about the animate world in which we live. They discuss the substrate of ecstatic unified experience underlying all human history, the difference between the mystic and the mythic, technologies of rapture and mechanisms of repetition, resonance across different axis, ritual paradigms, connection to muses, and the growing imperative to revive communal rituals of wonder that resound with the pulse of the present.

Have been listening to J.Brown Podcasts for a while. Initially liked them but thought the intro and end lacked value. After my second or third podcast that really changed. The intro and end where J.Brown puts in his perspective is actually incredibly valuable and it is kind of like after hearing a discussion getting another persons perspective and I am seriously coming to respect and value this perspective. So thanks J.Brown kudos to you for a totally brilliant podcast.
