Episode 45: Alex Peavey

2021-05-0701:25:27

“We got the prognosis and they said, OK, maybe a year we'll see as we kept going. So we keep pushing the outer limits, but it's the perpetual opportunity to immerse yourself in the present. That's ultimately the outcome.” - Alex Peavey This week, Oteil and Mike talk with Alex Peavey, a mindfulness consultant and the Team Consultant and Mindfulness Coach for VCU Men’s Basketball. Alex reached out as a listener of the podcast, sharing what a refuge the show has been throughout his battle with cancer. In this episode, Alex shares how he got into meditation and what role the practice has played in his life after his cancer diagnosis. They discuss the process of conceptualizing and emotionally processing your own mortality, along with different approaches to doing so. Alex also shares what music has helped bring him peace recently, and the three reflect on how the pandemic has reshaped their views.  Learn more about Alex & the Peavey Project: https://www.thepeaveyproject.org/ Alex Peavey is in his 14th year at Collegiate School where he served as the head boys’ varsity basketball coach for 12 years, and he continues to work as a school counselor, assistant boys’ varsity lacrosse coach, and mindfulness teacher. He has been practicing mindfulness since the age of 15, and with the knowledge that it can cultivate peace of mind as well as peak performance, Alex has been teaching these techniques to others for over a decade. In addition to introducing mindfulness to the students, faculty, and parents at Collegiate School, Alex has brought it to “Mindful Mondays” at the Cameron K Gallagher Foundation, colleges and universities across the state, regional and international conferences, correctional facilities, corporations, and the federal government. After almost a lifetime of practicing mindfulness, Alex found these strategies to be of the utmost importance last March when he was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. Even in spite of the physical and mental challenges he has faced in the last year, mindfulness has allowed him to choose the path of joy over and over, and this is a path he hopes others have the opportunity to experience in their own lives as well, beginning with the gateways of awareness and compassion. ----------- This podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Mike and Oteil welcome a very exciting guest on this week’s episode: Phish keyboard player Page McConnell, who recently released a new solo album Maybe We’re the Visitors. Once Mike finishes gushing over having just talked with one of his heroes, they get into the interview.

He and Oteil do a deep dive into playing around with keyboards, synths, and the different ways of using them and discovering new sounds. We find out that Page doesn’t listen to much music, especially not his own, and that Oteil unsuccessfully tries to introduce his kids to music that he enjoys. Stick around to hear Page and Mike talk about Clifford Ball and the other Phish festivals! Page McConnell is a multi-instrumentalist, who is best known for playing keys in the band Phish.

This week, Mike and Oteil talk with legendary visionary artists and couple Alex & Allyson Grey, who together founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, CoSM, a spiritual creative retreat center outside of New York City. Alex & Allyson talk about using psychedelics with intention to find the “mystic light” that runs through everything, and the experience of having your mind opened to love and to the light. They also discuss the experience where their love was solidified, when Alex took LSD for the first time at Allyson’s apartment, and his dark mental state that precipitated this huge life shift. All four share their mystical experiences encountering God, and finding ways to get back to the “flow state,” the awakened creative state where one cohabits with the divine. The wisdom and food for thought is plentiful throughout this conversation.  The mystic paintings of Alex Grey articulate realms of psychedelic visionary consciousness, revealing interwoven energies of body and soul, love and spirit, illuminating the anatomical core of each being. Alex’s visual meditations on the nature of life and consciousness, the subject of his art, have reached millions through his five books including three monographs, the exhibition and extensive reproduction of his artwork, speaking appearances including a popular TED talk, stage sets for major rock bands, video animation, and Grammy award winning album art.  Allyson Grey is a painter, social sculptor, Alex’s creative and life partner since meeting in art school in 1975. Chaos, Order and Secret Writing comprise the essentialized world view portrayed in Allyson’s paintings. Chaos represents the material world, Order, the interconnected realm of energy and light and Secret Writing articulates the mystic realm of creative expression. MFA, Tufts University. Allyson has long been an art educator, event organizer and a muse to artists worldwide.  Together, the Grey’s co-founded the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, CoSM, a spiritual creative retreat center outside of New York City. On the forefront of a movement in which painters join musicians on stage, the Grey’s have painted together live before tens of thousands of dancing young people at New York Broadway theaters, at sold-out festivals and arenas in dozens of international cities across five continents. As long-time advocates of “cognitive liberty,” a growing international “sacramental culture” has embraced the Grey’s as important mapmakers and spokespersons for the visionary realm. The Grey’s, with the CoSM team, are currently building Entheon, a Visionary Art sanctuary at CoSM. cosm.org Links: Alex Grey on Instagram Alex Grey on Facebook Allyson Grey on Instagram Allyson Grey on Facebook This podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Episode 39: Victor Wooten

Episode 39: Victor Wooten

2021-03-2602:19:30

“I love Willie Nelson because nobody has a voice like that. Bob Dylan, I wonder if he can even sing? Can he really even sing? That’s a question. But there is no one like him, so we love him. And to me, that's the thing that really draws people in, whether we realize it or not. Is that when someone realizes who they are so strongly, it touches a part of who we are, and we relate to it.” - Victor Wooten Mike & Oteil are joined by Victor Wooten, a GRAMMY award winning bass player who first came into prominence as a founding member of the super-group Béla Fleck & the Flecktones. They discuss the art of delivery in music, the importance of learning how to be and project yourself wholly in your art, and how challenges will come to test you en route to your goals. Victor shares the inspiration for his most recent book, The Spirit of Music, how the characters begin to write their own parts, and the value of entrenching lessons into a fictional story. Victor also talks about meeting Oteil and Kofi Burbridge as a young man, the admiration he had for them and what he learned from them, and so much more. This episode couldn’t be more packed with wisdom - and opportunities to see the world in a new light.  An extremely gifted and versatile bassist, Victor Wooten is a highly acclaimed performer whose work straddles the lines between jazz, bluegrass, funk, and progressive rock. Easily considered among the top echelon of bass players in history, Wooten first came to prominence as a member of the Grammy-winning ensemble Béla Fleck & the Flecktones. As a solo artist, he has recorded numerous well-regarded albums and been named Bass Player of the Year by Bass Player magazine three times. He is also a member of the bassist supergroup S.M.V. alongside Stanley Clarke and Marcus Miller. (Allmusic) This podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Episode 36: Denise Kaufman

Episode 36: Denise Kaufman

2021-03-0501:09:28

This week, Comes a Time welcomes Denise Kaufman, musician, yogi, activist, founding member of the all-girl SF band Ace of Cups, Merry Prankster, and so much more. Having joined her first Civil Rights picket line at 14 years old, Denise found herself as a young activist in the 1960’s San Francisco in the heart of the same world where the Grateful Dead came to be. Denise shares with Mike and Oteil the incredible tale of meeting Ken Kesey, “getting on the bus,” and getting her Prankster nickname “Mary Microgram.” She also explains what led to her going to music school at 33, her time teaching yoga to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and other celebrities, and opening a private school in Hawaii now in its 44th year of operation. Denise has lived many lives in one with one adventure following the next.  Growing up in San Francisco during the 1960s placed Denise Kaufman at the center of a cultural revolution. Her commitment to social justice and exploratory approach to life led her to adventures in counterculture: from being arrested at UC Berkeley's Sproul Hall protests during the Free Speech Movement, to "getting on the bus” (as "Mary Microgram") with Ken Kesey, the Merry Pranksters and the Grateful Dead; to forming the legendary Ace of Cups—an all-girl band that opened for Jimi Hendrix, The Band, and Janis Joplin; to being one of the seven founding mothers of Island School on Kauai; to studying with Robert Nadeau Shihan, Yogi Bhajan, Bikram Choudhury, Pattabhi Jois, and Paul Grilley and to teaching yoga to Madonna, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Quincy Jones, and Jane Fonda. Denise lives between Venice Beach and Kauai - playing music, teaching yoga, surfing and continuing to learn, channel inspiration and connect all those around her.  This podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Episode 35: Eric Krasno

Episode 35: Eric Krasno

2021-02-2601:47:11

Today’s episode is chock-full of adventures from the life of touring musicians. Oteil and Mike are joined by guitarist, producer, and fellow podcaster Eric Krasno. Eric has been a fixture in popular music for decades, and his musical talent and breadth of knowledge is nearly unparalleled. The three discuss the power of discovering certain music at the exact right moment in your life, with Eric sharing his “late” discovery of Bob Dylan. Eric and Oteil trade stories from the road, from embracing being underprepared for gigs and learning on the fly, to reminiscing on the greats they’ve shared stages with and the superpowers they wield. They also discuss the challenge of learning the full Grateful Dead catalogue and its many iterations, and share some of their missteps along the way.  For nearly two decades, Eric Krasno has been an omnipresent figure in popular music. We've heard his virtuosic, innovative guitar playing with Soulive and Lettuce (both of which he co-founded), seen him onstage supporting the likes of the Rolling Stones, Dave Mathews Band, John Mayer and The Roots, watched him take home multiple GRAMMY Awards, and benefited from his deft, behind-the-scenes work as a producer and songwriter for everyone from Norah Jones, Tedeschi Trucks, and 50 Cent to Talib Kweli, Aaron Neville, and Allen Stone. Krasno's recent solo album, 'Blood From A Stone,' reveals a previously unknown and utterly compelling side of his artistry, though, inviting us to bear witness as he both literally and metaphorically finds his voice.

If you’re interested in the power of mushrooms and the potential for elevation of human consciousness, you won’t want to miss this episode. Mike & Oteil welcome Paul Stamets, mycologist, entrepreneur, researcher, and expert in all things fungi. Also joining the conversation is Bob Weir, legendary Grateful Dead singer and rhythm guitarist. Paul is a treasure trove of scientific information, delving deep into the latest research happening with Psilocybin and other medicinal mushrooms, from treating addiction to PTSD, to stimulation of neurogenesis (what he calls “Einstein mushrooms”) and even COVID-19. Bob chimes in with his own mycelial anecdotes and his predictions about how the world will react to the increasing research around psychoactive mushrooms. As if that weren’t enough, you’ll also hear how Paul became the inspiration for Lieutenant Paul Stamets on Star Trek, an astro-mycologist.  Paul Stamets, speaker, author, mycologist, medical researcher and entrepreneur, is considered an intellectual and industry leader in fungi: habitat, medicinal use, and production. He lectures extensively to deepen the understanding and respect for the organisms that literally exist under every footstep taken on this path of life. His presentations cover a range of mushroom species and research showing how mushrooms can help the health of people and planet. His central premise is that habitats have immune systems, just like people, and mushrooms are cellular bridges between the two. Our close evolutionary relationship to fungi can be the basis for novel pairings in the microbiome that lead to greater sustainability and immune enhancement. *DISCLAIMER: This podcast does NOT provide medical advice.

Episode 33: Ben & Jerry

Episode 33: Ben & Jerry

2021-02-1201:09:36

“It's partly about lying or not telling the truth, but fundamentally, it's - is there any trust between people and institutions? And if people in those institutions are not telling the truth, there is no trust. And why should you bother listening to anything they tell you or why should you comply with anything you're asked to do if you're not being told the truth?” - Jerry Greenfield On this week’s episode of Comes a Time, Mike and Oteil are joined by the infamous Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s, the Vermont ice cream slingers known for creative flavors and successfully building a values-led business. Ben and Jerry share their issues with dishonesty in politics and media and discuss the importance of truth from and accountability for politicians. The four also talk about their concerns with the prosecution of whistleblowers, and the loss of the dividing line between opinion content and the news.

Today, Ben & Jerry’s is recognized and enjoyed worldwide. The company has long been known for its creative and innovative flavors, clever names, and successfully incorporating activism into their business model.

“We're all going around here acting like you're not going to lose everything, everything at any given moment. That is scary. But the reason it's scary is because you think you have something to lose.

Episode 27: Don Was

Episode 27: Don Was

2021-01-0801:25:19

“If you understand the process of making records, the style of music doesn't matter. What matters is that whoever the artist is, that they're being for real, that they're opening up and letting out this part of their inner life that defies explanation, where words fail to convey the true depth of our inner emotional lives. We use art as a metaphor to communicate it. - Don Was On today's episode of Comes a Time, Mike & Oteil welcome bass player and record producer Don Was, co-founder of the funk-rock band Was (not Was) and later a producer on countless albums with major artists including the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. Don shares his philosophy when it comes to producing a record and the occasional star-struck moments that still appear when he thinks on his career. The three also discuss Phil Lesh’s incredibly unique bass style and Oteil’s approach to filling that role in Dead & Company, along with the connection to the music that comes through playing Grateful Dead songs.  Don Fagenson first became known to music audiences as a founding member of Was (Not Was), which he formed with childhood friend David Weiss in his hometown of suburban Detroit under the stage names Don Was and David Was. Throughout the 1980s and early 1990s, Was (Not Was) released four studio albums that showcased their unique blend of soul, funk, R&B, rock, and dance music combined with satirical and unusual lyrics. Their 1988 album, What Up, Dog?, spawned the US and UK hit singles "Spy in the House of Love" and "Walk the Dinosaur." As an in-demand, highly acclaimed, and commercially successful producer since the late 1980s, Was has been honored with multiple Grammy Awards and an Emmy Award for his production work, which includes collaborations with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, John Mayer, Bonnie Raitt, Gregg Allman, Brian Wilson, Ziggy Marley, and countless others. In 2012, he became the president of preeminent jazz label Blue Note Records.  This podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.
