What makes us human? What is the nature of our happiness and suffering... and where do we rile up the energy to do all of this!? How does awakening unfold on the tri-level of our body/mind/spirit continuum and transfer into society? This podcast is for truth-seekers and those who wish to gain wisdom - not just 'dry, book knowledge'. We cover topics like: how awakening affects us on a societal level in science, art, & economics; Buddhism, Hinduism, & ancient knowledge; plant entheogens; and spiritual practice. Email me at

"My theory is... 'okay, so I live in a prison. I'm not going to be able to stop thinking. So instead of a prison, why don't I make it a palace?!" ~ Alan Gordon. This is, after all, what every great ancient wisdom tradition seeks to do -- and to share the love, residing in our own minds, with every other living being. Alan combines his years of experience and background with science and ancient wisdom to guide us on the exact steps to take positive action with our own minds. The mysterious subconscious and its relentless control over our lives is the focus of Alan's work, and he illumines us on its reprogramming capability. Since Buddhism and mind are inevitably intertwined, I thought I'd share another perspective on this vast and great topic. Visit Alan at -- he will also be launching his own "Cycle of Mind" podcast soon on September 24th, so be on the lookout! Love, namaste.

Rob Cobbold runs, a global awareness movement that knows our true potential. He caught on that we are at the cusp of being able to fully consciously evolve as both human beings and societies. Gone are the days when we need our primal instincts to drive our behaviour, yet they still function; if we can harness the power of knowing ourselves by looking at where we have come from and have vision on where we are going, then we will be able to consciously choose rather than react. In this episode, we talk about evolution... we talk about spiral dynamics and human behaviour... and we talk about money. Enjoy! *Please help keep our show free by donating on Patreon if you support awakening, awareness, & society. Om, namaste, and blessings!
What is true non-judgment and non-discrimination, at the root of it all? We go over the practical ways in which you can practice and see everyone and everything as "equal" -- this is in sharp contrast to how we normally view the world and see "other" in every aspect of life, from our 6 senses, to people, and to our own imaginations and mind-wanderings in meditation. Om Namah Buddhay!

How do we know we are learning genuine spiritual teachings and are not being taken a fool? Here, we talk about spiritual fads in relation to gurus, teachings, and paths and how to spot them. For example, Tantra has been co-opted to remain synonymous with sex, while its origins are extremely complex and broad, ranging from manipulating inner energies and winds, to perfectly imagining mandalas, to literally becoming a Vajrayana god or goddess.  I open with an astonishing claim that the Buddha uttered himself about his own 8-fold path and its truths. Join me and tune in to look at your own experience to see if what I'm saying is true -- don't just believe me or any authority!
Why can we trust the Vedas and the Upanishads over the scriptures and books of other religions? If experience is of the utmost importance, as it is in Buddhism, then what role does experience play in Sanatana Dharma and knowing Krishna as the highest? Why do we have this material body? What is unconditional love, and why does God desire it? How does personal intuition play into Sanatana Dharma? In this practical and philosophical interview which encourages free-thinking and reflection, Sri Acharya shares his knowledge and wisdom with ease. Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya is a Dharmi who is serious about changing the way societies across the world function to bring restoration of the "Eternal, Natural Way" from the dark age of Kali Yuga into the Coming Golden Age as predicted by the Vedas. Sri Acharya has been teaching solely in the United States after he was ordained a Vedic Brahmana over 40 years ago in India. Included in a long list of credentials, Acharyaji earned his PhD at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in "Languages and Cultures of Asia" and has spoken at Harvard, Cornell, Rutgers, and other prestigous universities and is learned in Sanskrit, Philosophy, Vedic Studies, and South Asian Affairs. Please visit and visit Dharma Nation on Youtube to become fascinated by Acharyaji's approach to life and spirituality.
