Damien Echols Chris Grosso

In this episode of The Healing Journey Web Series, Damien Echols and I discuss Magick, what it is and isn’t; the role Magick played in Damien surviving almost 20 years on death row, 10 of which were spent in solitary confinement; the wisdom traditions that resonate with each of us, including Magick, Zen, Wicca, Vedanta, Taoism; the Rumi quote “Everyone will taste death – but only some will taste life.”; the energetic power of words and intention and explore how The Bible is a great example of this; the difference between hope and faith and what they mean to each of us; what it’s like to be young, feel like an outcast, and how to work through that; and much more!

Damien Echols is a ceremonial magician and artist who lives in NYC with his wife and cats. He spent 18 years on death row for a crime he did not commit and wrote the book “Life after Death” about his experiences. You can keep up with his upcoming exhibitions on Facebook at @damienwechols and at:

Hardcore Spirit

September 16, 2016

unnamed

Chris Grosso and Ken Wilber explore a radical new evolution of the spiritual life that is much better adapted to the needs and pressures of the 21st century world. It is a spirituality that is so all-inclusive, nothing gets left out. So all-embracing, it literally has no opposite. So all-pervading, even sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll can find their rightful place on the altar. This is not your grandma’s spirituality. These aren’t the crusty moralizations of traditional religion, or the saccharine pablum of New Age narcissism. This is Hardcore Spirit.

Be The Goddamn Phoenix

There may be no greater understatement than that of “life is hard,” and yet, it might be the one undeniable universal truth that we all share. Life is hard; it’s so goddamn hard. It demands everything of us, but what happens when we’re not ready, or able, to show up and offer life our entire everything? Speaking from my own personal experience, it breaks the heart. For some, this break may be a little, while for others, it may be a lot. For most of us, we’re not even aware the break is happening. And this is very understandable as we’re caught up in the business that is life, which makes perfect sense because it’s what we’ve known our entire lives. That is, until it doesn’t make sense anymore.

I believe there are times in every single one of our lives where we have “moments of clarity”. For some, it may be while staring down the barrel of a gun, while for others it might be while listening to a particular song, or teaching, hiking in nature, making love or any other number of things. Whatever the cause, life is full of moments of clarity, or “awakening”. And it’s thanks to those brief moments of clarity and awakening that guide us to cultivating greater compassion, loving-kindness, and connection with ourselves, with others, and with life as a whole.  (more…)

The Healing Journey with Chris Grosso – Episode 8: Mary O’Malley

March 9, 2016

Episode Outline: In this episode of The Healing Journey, Sounds True author Mary O’Malley and I discuss her difficult childhood, which were plagued by drug, alcohol and food addictions; “The myth of not being okay,” which is a type of mindset that hopes that if we can just get our life the way you want it to be, then we will feel okay (which is never the case); fear and how we can learn to face it with a spirit of curiosity, ultimately helping us to find our way through it; “The Five Great Teachers”, which are designed to bring up what’s been bound inside of us and is asking for our healing and attention; “The Four Lets,” which are: 1) Let Life 2) Let It Be 3) Let It Go and 4) Let Go and much more.
