Description

Today’s episode features Allurement -- a power of the universe that gives rise to attraction, intimacy, healing and growth.

 In this episode Brian discusses how responding to allurement transformed hydrogen atoms into stars and deepened the intimacy between the Earth and the Sun through the development of chlorophyll.   

Also explored is the invention of vertebrate sexuality and how excitement for existence is encoded into our genetic makeup.  

Finally, Brian shares two ways we might enable the power of allurement to become activated in our own lives, by connecting with the wild nature of our beloved and through deep adoration toward that which draws us in.
