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.

New Podcast with Spiritual Troublemaker Jeff Brown

Jeff Brown Chris Grosso

Check out the new episode HERE!

Episode Outline:

  • Jeff’s Early Years – Jeff talks about finding himself on the verge of opening a law practice when he heard a little voice inside telling you to stop, how that process unfolded, and learning to become more aware of his emotions and their accompanying wisdom.
  • Karmageddon – Jeff speaks candidly about his documentary Karmageddon and his experience with spiritual teacher Bhagavan Das, which was rocky at best.
  • Spiritual Graffiti – Jeff and I discuss his most recent book, “Spiritual Graffiti,” beginning with the introduction, “A Call to Authenticity,” and elaborating on this excerpt, “Although I use the word “spiritual” in the title, make no mistake as to my meaning. By spiritual, I do not mean anything that is exclusively transcendent, etheric, or blissful. I don’t mean anything steeped in artificial forgiveness, wishful thinking, radical detachment, ego-bashing.”
  • New Cage Movement – In Spiritual Graffiti, Jeff coins a term, “New Cage Movement” which he describes as, “What I once honored as a new age for humanity, I now refer to as the “New Cage Movement”, as I witness seekers fleeing their humanness—and opportunities for deeper transformation—in droves. I use this term to describe the ungrounded, dangerous and simplistic elements of the New Age movement…” and we explore in-depth.
  • Spiritual Bypassing – Jeff and I explore another excerpt from Spiritual Graffiti which addresses spiritual bypassing. As Jeff writes, “The real dawning of a new age for humanity requires that we let go of the ungrounded notion that real spirituality exists independent of our human experience. This is the big lie, perpetuated by masters of self-avoidance masquerading as enlightened masters. Yes, we are spiritual beings having a human experience. But we are also human beings having a human experience. They are one and the same.”

Chris Grosso JP Sears

Friends- I’m so incredibly excited to be offering this online course with my dear friend JP Sears, which is being hosted by the wonderful people at Where Is My Guru! JP and I have created a mini-retreat of sorts for you that you can do from the comfort of your own home, while in your jammies, and even eating a bowl of cereal if you’d like! Here’s more info:

INCREASE YOUR PEACE OF MIND IN KNOWING AND ACCEPTING YOURSELF, AS YOU ARE.
Resolve the emotional and spiritual scar tissue that limits you from accessing your true Self.

Join JP Sears and Chris Grosso for an intimate online retreat where you will dive into discussions and practices focused on resolving pain in your heart. Be prepared to “keep it real” as these two emerging leaders in a new generation of spiritual teachers are grounded in teaching from a place of both heart and humor. Lectures will swing from Ram Dass to The Simpsons, from the perspective of JP’s altar ego, The Ultra Spiritualist to sincere and serious emotional processing techniques in as much time as it takes your heart to go from zero to 60. Humor and light-heartedness are the hearts salve to for the scars and suffering we have all endured on the path.

In this episode of The Healing Journey Mona Haydar and I discuss her relationship to spirituality and religion as a child; experiencing God in nature and the depth, stillness and interconnectedness that flourished as a result; poetry as an expression of God; what the word Islam means, discussing the peace and surrender aspects of it and how the universe has no problem intervening in our lives in order to make us surrender; who “the one God” is according to the Muslim faith; the role of the prophet Muhammad in the Muslim faith; the “Ask a Muslim” stand she and her husband Sebastian set up in Cambridge, MA, which offers free donuts and coffee to people, as well as a conversation about being Muslim; the power of reaching out to ones neighbor, regardless of their religion or lack thereof; sharing more love in the world and much more!
