He emphasizes how good shepherds are willing to face the truth, and also sacrifice for their sheep, like Jesus who laid down his life for us. In our reading of Jeremiah, Fr. Mike also explains that the experience of shame points to the reality that there is something good within us that ought not to be violated.

    What the U of Michigan Med Students Missed...

    Canceling a speaker is run-of-the-mill these days. So, when a university “cancels the cancellation,” it's worth noting.   Dr. Kristin Collier is a professor of internal medicine at the University of Michigan and director of the school's Program on Health, Spirituality and Religion. She was a natural choice to give the keynote address at the school's white coat ceremony for incoming students. The Gold Humanism Honor Society selects speakers “who are exemplars of compassionate patient care and who serve as role models, mentors, and leaders in medicine.”  A group of 300 students protested because of Collier's pro-life views. “We demand that UM stands in solidarity with us and selects a speaker whose values align with institutional policies, students, and the broader medical community,” they wrote in an anonymous letter.  Rather than bow to the pressure, as so many school officials have done in recent years, medical school dean Marschall Runge defended the choice of Collier and the school's commitment to freedom of expression. “Our values speak about honoring the critical importance of diversity of personal thought and ideas,” he wrote in a statement. “We would not revoke a speaker because they have different personal ideas than others.”  The handful of students who walked out during Dr. Collier's address missed something special, an incredible speech that challenged students to rethink what medicine is and is for.  “The risk of this education and the one that I fell into is that you can come out of medical school with a bio-reductionist, mechanistic view of people and ultimately of yourself. You can easily end up seeing your patients as just a bag of blood and bones or human life as just molecules in motion.”   You are not technicians taking care of complex machines, but human beings taking care of other human beings. Let's resist a view, of our patients and ourselves, that strips us of our humanity, and takes away from the very goal of why we went into this profession in the first place: to take care of human beings entrusted to our care in their moments of greatest need.”   From there, Collier challenged these medical professionals in training to ask big questions about who they are and what they do, and to practice gratitude. It was a brilliant speech overshadowed by a fabricated and unnecessary controversy.   Roughly half of all Americans share Dr. Collier's views on abortion, which she did not address in her speech. As Dr. Vinay Prasad wrote in the blog Common Sense, “I do not share Dr. Collier's faith or her views on abortion. But ultimately, the decision of students to walk out of the lecture because they disagree with the speaker on another topic has no limit.”    Collier's colleague, University of Michigan professor Scott Richard Lyons, wrote for Inside Higher Ed,   If the academy brooks no dissent, how can knowledge advance? If differing opinions are treated as thought crimes, how much longer will thinkers want to work at our universities? If institutions of higher education do not protect free thought and speech, intellectual diversity, dissent… why should they exist at all?  In fact, the University of Michigan's Faculty Handbook states that “expression of diverse points of view is of the highest importance” and should be protected.  Of course, most universities and organizations have similar statements but lack the courage to live by them.   In contrast, Dr. Collier's courage, grace under pressure, and dedication to professional excellence exemplify what's required in a culture that forgets that free speech in a free society blesses everyone. Her kindness to those who walked out of their own white coat ceremony exemplifies how we must treat everyone, from those who reject that freedom to those still located inside the womb. In that moment, she lived out her advice to not see people as machines but as human beings. Especially for those entering a profession especially prone to cynicism and burnout, her address is worth watching in its entirety.   Let's pray there are many among that University of Michigan crowd who follow in Dr. Collier's footsteps.

On this ID the Future, neuroscientist Andrew Newberg and neurosurgeon Michael Egnor sit down for a chat about all things brain related including neurotheology, methods of studying the brain, and research on how various forms of religious and non-religious meditation actually change the wiring of the brain, including in particular a study Newberg did on Franciscan nuns and what they refer to as “centering prayer.” This interview is borrowed, with permission, from Mind Matters, a podcast of the Walter Bradley Center for Natural and Artificial Intelligence.

    David and Tamler continue their discussion of Leo Tolstoy's “A Confession.” When we left him last time, the famous author had bottomed out just years after writing two of the greatest novels ever written. Our eventual death, Tolstoy thought, strips life of all meaning and purpose – all answers to the question “so what?”. How does he emerge from this state of suicidal depression? What role does faith or “irrational knowledge” play in his account? What's the meaning of the cryptic dream at the conclusion of the memoir? Plus, bombarded with this recommendation, we were going to talk about a certain article that came out in Qualitative Research about masturbating to Japanese shota comics – we even had a guest – but had to scrap it. Instead, we discuss a recent study on conspiracy theories that shows that liberals are just as likely to believe in them as conservatives. Mostly we just talk about the conspiracies.

    If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you'd probably call yourself a Christian. You may even say that's our religion. But, when we follow diets, there is a temptation to follow a false religion. In fact, that's why diets sell and why Christians love diets so much--there's a lot of similarities between following a diet and our walk of faith. But, it's important in the end to know which "religion" you are more allegiant to--the religion of diets or Jesus! Today we explore the following topics in this episode--The Religion of Diets: **We talk about the great similarities between what Diet Culture teaches and what Christianity teaches in terms of faith and salvation. **We look at words like righteousness, holiness, grace, and justice and how they apply to both Christianity and to our dieting. **We explore why it's so easy to fall into the trap of earning righteousness through food or exercise rules and how real Christianity requires grace that dieting doesn't offer. **We explore the root word of Diet Culture and talk about how a shared faith and worship of something that's not Jesus is always idolatry.

The result of raising turkeys in such a natural way is a much healthier, clean protein with higher levels of vitamins, minerals, and omega-3s. Unfortunately, virtually all turkey in the USA is conventionally raised with a small portion being "free range" – a virtually meaningless term that simply means the turkeys were allowed access to the outdoors. However, most "free range" turkeys only have access to an outdoor dirt field with no pasture in sight.

[56:20] Three Key Pieces of Soul Wisdom Endure: Tools, Tactics, and Habits for Spiritual Stamina by Ben Greenfield Disney and Pixar's Soul | Official Trailer The most important pieces of wisdom that Ben pulled from the movie, Soul, that he included in his book, Endure. Why the movie, Soul, means so much to both Ben and Josh. C.S. Lewis Ben's spark to live a simple yet extraordinary life and what that looks like for him. How you are indeed positively helping and changing the world even if it's as simple as just loving one person because that is an infinite gift that goes on for all of eternity. The effects of melatonin and how it's similar to a spiritual awakening process. What he has learned about society and why we're not inherently good when left to our own volition as we make a lot of bad mistakes and hurt others. Why we are all capable of love and being good but we cannot do it all on our own. How Ben stays sustainable in his own spiritual growth. Why turning to a higher power can bring people so much hope because then they know that they are not alone. [1:07:25] The 3 Biggest Rocks for Spiritual Connection Fibonacci's sequence Exploring proof that a God or Higher Power does exist compared to the lack of proof that it doesn't. Why you need absolutely nothing to be able to commune with God; not plant medicines, not a priest, not a church, an institution, or a specific religion.

How to avoid the 'grass is always greener' syndrome and compare your purpose to other people living theirs. How To Find Your Purpose In Life. - Ben Greenfield Fitness Why you should never underestimate your special skills and what you're able to do in this world. How to come familiar with what you're good at and then without shame take that and run with it, not in the spirit of monetizing it, but with love. [1:13:30] How Prayers Can be Answered + Sometimes Are Not Why your heart first has to be in the right place and with pure intention when you commune with God about your wishes and desires. Ben's prayers for years to God to help heal his gut issues and how that health experience led him to actually helping so many people with their own healing process. How his health issues keep him humble knowing that his body is not perfect. Why prayers, like the ones he made for his gut health, are sometimes not answered directly because God knows that another purpose needs to be served,  you need something better or you need to be praying for something different. The fact that some people pray but they don't truly believe and that hinders the process. How God makes plans for us in ways that we cannot fathom and things will play out in a process that we never expected. Why we need to thank God now for the very thing that we desire compared to coming from a place of scarcity. How Ben defines wellness and living life well. Why freedom is also being vulnerable and how Ben has navigated his own shadow self and ego. 405 Tim Corcoran | Vision Quest: How To Find Your Place In The Ecology of Life, Purpose Mountain & Spiritual Courage Power Quotes From The Show Sustainable Spiritual Growth "By the nature of me knowing and acknowledging that I'm not good, that I can't do it all on my own, that I need God's help, it's incredibly humbling. To be able to be on my knees each morning and say to God, 'I give everyone and everything to you. I can't do this on my own. I can't be good on my own nor be the father and husband I want to be on my own. Although this might sound like the total polar opposite of a positive affirmation, I'm a fallen creature and I would commit great evil if I were left all alone to myself; I know it...' ...However, there is this great confidence that despite all of that, I am loved unconditionally and have been offered a rescue line that is free so that all I have to do is rely upon the grace of God and his love to be able to help me be as good as I can be. I think knowing that gives great hope because then you know that you don't have to do it all on your own. You can rely upon a higher power to be the person that you want to be in this life." - Ben Greenfield Loving the World Through Your Purpose "You were made for a reason and you just have to unlock it. You have a planned divine purpose and it's so easy to experience the "grass is always greener" syndrome especially in a world with social media. It's so simple to look at other people living their purpose; they're a doctor or an architect or a gardener and then you find yourself comparing your life to theirs but never underestimate your unique skill set and the things that come easy to you because that's how you can love the world the most. You just have to intimately become familiar with what it is that you're good at and then unashamedly run with it in the spirit of not monetizing it but loving with it. Find your purpose and know that you never have to be ashamed of that purpose." - Ben Greenfield The Appropriate Path to God "In my own plant medicine experiences, they have only ever been about light, love, and spiritual enlightenment. Many former atheists that I have spoken to that have participated in plant medicine have been able to come and know God through ceremony. Plant medicines can be a path to God but it is not THE path; it is not the appropriate path to God. The reason for that is you can go in protected with positive energy plus the right environment and know that you can trust the shaman but it's really just playing with fire... ...That's why God has warned us about pharmakeia in the bible because he knew how attractive it was and how much of a train wreck it would cause in the end or how much of a displaced trust it would cause for people to put their faith and reliance upon how they could become spiritually enlightened in anything other than the free act of just leaving their burden at the foot of the cross, thanking Jesus, and living in grace." - Ben Greenfield Links From Today's Show  Listen to: Ben Greenfield Life Podcasts Why I Am No Longer Going to Be Using Plant Medicines: Part 1 - The Big Problem With “Plant Medicines” Part 2 - Why I Am No Longer Going to Be Using Plant Medicines: The Big Problem With “Plant Medicines” CHEK Institute How To Eat, Move, & Be Healthy by Paul Chek Paul Chek on Wellness + Wisdom Podcast RUNGA  Cover Story | Power Trip by New York Magazine Onnit 123 Aubrey Marcus – Own The Day 196.

    In this episode, the legendary Ramsey Dukes returns to talk about chaos magick, the Aeon of Horus, his Guru alter-ego "Baba Rebok," and lots more! From his Thelemapedia bio: Lionel Snell was born in England in 1945 and brought up in the ‘arts and crafts' milieu of the Gloucestershire countryside but won scholarships and County financial backing for formal education at Clifton College, Bristol, and Emmanuel College, Cambridge (1964-68), where he officially studied pure mathematics but also studied the works of Aleister Crowley in the university library and held his first “ritual happening” in the mid 1960s. Being brought up in a culture of alternative lifestyles and radical thought formed a contrast with his subsequent traditional education with its later emphasis on science. This lead to a lifelong interest in building bridges between the scientific/materialist worldview and alternative spirituality/paranormal—an approach very different from those New Age philosophies that seek to reconcile or equate science and spirit. This is strongly reflected in Ramsey Dukes' writings where he addresses Science, Magic, Art and Religion as four ‘cultures' as an extension of CP Snow's popular ‘two culture' concept.

    Once called “the miracle on the beach,” Synanon began in the 1960s as an experimental rehab facility in Santa Monica, California with a radical claim: It could cure heroin addiction. Before long, it would make an even bolder claim: It could cure any of your problems. All you had to do was move in. What started in a house on the beach, soon spread to compounds across the country. The man who made the miracle happen, Charles E. Dederich, aka “Chuck,” would be the one to destroy it all, along with the lives of many of his followers and millions of dollars in assets. The Sunshine Place tells the mind-blowing, true-story of Synanon - one of America's most cutting edge social experiments, turned into one of its most dangerous and violent cults - as it's never been told before: by the people who lived it.
