Pray Away: A Reflection - With Chad & Steve

October 6, 2021

This week my friends Chad & Steve join me to discuss and reflect on the Netflix film "Pray Away". This is a film by Ryan Murphy that engages Ex-leaders and a survivor of the so-called "conversion therapy" movement as they speak out about its harm to the LGBTQ+ community and its devastating persistence.

The episode was the idea of my friend Chad, a survivor of "conversion therapy". Chad offered us new insights and perspectives into the film and the lives of those directly affected by "conversion therapy". Enjoy.

Radical Wholeness and the Ordinary Grace of Being - With Philip Shepherd

Radical Wholeness and the Ordinary Grace of Being - With Philip Shepherd

September 22, 2021

There are qualities we all yearn to experience in our lives - peace, simplicity, grace, connection, clarity. Yet these qualities evade us, because each of them arises from an experience of wholeness, and we live in a culture that enforces divisions within each of us.

This week, Philip Shepherd joins me in conversation to discuss the countless ways in which we are persuaded to separate from the body and live in the head. Disconnected from the body's intelligence, we also disconnect from the wholeness of the present. This schism within us is the primary source of stress not just in our personal lives, but for the systems of the planet.

I really enjoyed this conversation and am excited to share it with you all. Enjoy!
