He has also studied with the American meditation teacher Adyashanti, who first suggested that Loch teach others.  Today we talk about Loch's approach to the direct path of awakening.

In the early twentieth century, Khunu Lama journeyed across Tibet and India, meeting Buddhist masters while sometimes living, so his students say, on cold porridge and water. Yet this elusive wandering renunciant became a revered teacher of the Fourteenth Dalai Lama. At Khunu Lama's death in 1977, he was mourned by Himalayan nuns, Tibetan lamas, and American meditators alike. The many surviving stories about him reveal significant dimensions of Tibetan Buddhism, shedding new light on questions of religious affect and memory to reimagine cultural continuity beyond the binary of traditional and modern. In Renunciation and Longing: The Life of a Twentieth-Century Himalayan Buddhist Saint (U Chicago Press, 2022), Annabella Pitkin explores intersecting imaginaries of devotion, renunciation, and the teacher-student lineage relationship. By examining narrative accounts of the life of a remarkable twentieth-century Himalayan Buddhist and focusing on his remembered identity as a renunciant bodhisattva, Pitkin illuminates Tibetan and Himalayan practices of memory, affective connection, and mourning. Refuting long-standing caricatures of Tibetan Buddhist communities as unable to be modern because of their religious commitments, Pitkin shows instead how twentieth- and twenty-first-century Tibetan and Himalayan Buddhist narrators have used themes of renunciation, devotion, and lineage as touchstones for negotiating loss and vitalizing continuity.

In my attempts to connect with people on some of our most important issues like climate change, I have been missing a huge pathway - faith. These issues need hard conversations, and hard conversations need us to tap into more than facts and fears. My conversation with Dekila opens the door to bringing the sacred back into science. THE IMPACT. Dekila Chungyalpa: - is the founder and director of the Loka Initiative, an interdisciplinary capacity building and outreach platform at the University of Wisconsin - Madison for faith leaders and culture keepers of Indigenous traditions who work on environmental and climate issues. Its mission is to support faith-led environmental and climate action efforts, locally and around the world, through collaborations on project design and management, capacity building, training, media and public outreach. Their vision: that inner, community, and planetary resilience are interdependent and that we cannot achieve any one of these goals without working on the other two. To sign up for their quarterly newsletter: https://go.wisc.edu/lokanewsletter - founded and led Sacred Earth, a faith-based conservation program at the World Wildlife Fund; at WWF-US she was also Director for the Greater Mekong Program - serves as the environmental adviser for His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, head of the Karma Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism. - received the prestigious Yale McCluskey Award in 2014 for conservation innovation - recently published in Psychology Today on how to cope with eco-anxiety THE JOURNEY. In our conversation, we explore: - Her path to wholeness: bridging her spiritual heritage growing up in Sikkim in a Tibetan Buddhist community and her environmental conservation background, after being “an environmentalist by day and a person of faith by night” - Eco-anxiety amidst success: her own path through the urgency and panic while being externally “successful” at the World Wildlife Fund - People and planet: why faith leaders are uniquely positioned to lead us in spiritual truth-seeking on some of our toughest issues

On this episode, Laura Chandler interviews Geshe Dangsong Namgyal, the founder of Kungsong Gar Meditation Center in Santa Cruz, and author of the book, Holy Women of Great Perfection: Thirty Signs and Meanings of Ultimate Nature in the Ancient Tibetan Tradition. And she is joined by a special guest co-host, Isa Gucciardi, Ph.D., author of The New Return to the Great Mother and Founding Director of the Foundation of the Sacred Stream. In this conversation, we talk with Geshe Namgyal about his book, teachings, and the practice of Pure Dzogen. He explains why he chose to highlight the wisdom and teaching of female deities in his book, particularly in light of the changing, but still strongly patriarchal tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He also talks about the pan-Buddhist practice of Rime, a movement in Tibetan Buddhism that is non-sectarian, as well as the practice of Pure Dzogchen. He offers that no matter what one's background—country, gender, age, race, beliefs or history of painful experiences and emotions, the study and practice of the Pure Dzogchen teachings can help people discover true peace, strength, and fearlessness in life; and confidence in an eventual, positive death and rebirth experience.

Ep. 24 (Part 1 of 2) | Thomas Hübl, renowned spiritual teacher, author, expert on collective trauma, and creator and facilitator of The Collective Trauma Integration Process, shares fascinating, life changing information about the dynamics of collective trauma—how it is embodied and perpetuated in the language we use, and how we are bound together in a sort of “mutual collusion” that predisposes us to repeat our past, and to repeat over and over the things we would much rather leave behind. With remarkable insight and wisdom garnered from years of study, exploration, and effectively working with large groups to integrate collective shadow, Thomas also explains how we can create space for a new future by metabolizing the suffering held in both our personal and collective unconscious and making awakening and spiritual clarity the indubitable priority of our lives. Recorded at the Science and Nonduality Conference, October 2019, with Dr. Roger Walsh, John Dupuy, and Douglas Prater. “Healing the broken glass of reality.” (For Apple Podcast users, https://deeptransformation.io/thomas-hubl-healing-collective-trauma-part-1/ (click here to view the complete show notes on the episode page.))

Community, an externalization of our intention (18:22) Two challenges: We are tempted to abandon our practice both when it gets very dark—and when life gets very good (20:35)  Consciousness is catching: the way to develop desired qualities is to hang out with people who embody the qualities we want (22:14) Our cultural relationship to hierarchy: we've thrown it out, but there are hierarchies of development, maturity, wisdom, insight, and compassion that should be honored What are the most valuable ways to engage with what is inside us and integrate what we discover? (25:18)  Paying attention to congruence and coherence in our mental, physical, and emotional expression (28:21) Collective trauma: all of us have been born into a traumatized world (29:10)  Healing the broken reality: every trauma healing needs to result in an ethical upgrade; we have to become better people (31:54)  Thomas' collective trauma group work where the field in the room is able to mirror the unseen dimension stored in the cultural unconscious  (32:31) We are all sculptures in a transpersonal nervous system, called to metabolize the suffering held in both our personal and collective unconscious (38:14) Resources & References - Part 1Thomas Hübl & Julie Jordan Avritt, https://amzn.to/3LxcPO3 (Healing Collective Trauma: A Process for Integrating Our Intergenerational and Cultural Wounds)* Thomas Hübl's https://thomashuebl.com/academy-inner-science/ (Academy of Inner Science) Thomas Hübl's website: https://thomashuebl.com/ (https://thomashuebl.com) Thomas Hübl's YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/thomashuebl (https://www.youtube.com/user/thomashuebl) Thomas Hübl, https://amzn.to/3KCOq8f (Modern Mystic - Principles for Living Consciously:...

Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny-Mark Stavish & Host Bob Hieronimus

Mark Stavish talking about Egregores: The Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny, Inner Traditions, 2018 One of most important but little known concepts of Western occultism is that of the egregore, an autonomous psychic entity created by a collective group mind. An egregore is sustained by belief, ritual, and sacrifice and relies upon the devotion of a group of people, from a small coven to an entire nation, for its existence. An egregore that receives enough sustenance can take on a life of its own, becoming an independent deity with powers its believers can use to further their own spiritual advancement and material desires.  Presenting the first book devoted to the study of egregores, Mark Stavish examines the history of egregores from ancient times to present day, with detailed and documented examples, and explores how they are created, sustained, directed, and destroyed. He explains how egregores were well known in the classical period of ancient Greece and Rome, when they were consciously called into being to watch over city states. He explores the egregore concept as it was understood in various Western Mystery traditions, with examples from Tibetan Buddhism, Islam, modern esoteric orders such as the Order of the Golden Dawn and Rosicrucianism. Stavish provides instructions on how to identify egregores, free yourself from a parasitic and destructive collective entity, and destroy an egregore, should the need arise. Revealing how egregores form the foundation of nearly all human interactions, the author shows how egregores have moved into popular culture and media--underscoring the importance of intense selectivity in the information we accept and the ways we perceive the world and our place in it.    Hosted by Dr. Bob Hieronimus.  Produced by Hieronimus & Co. for 21st Century Radio®.  Edited version provided to Nightlight Radio with permission.

Then we explore the nature of subjective reality itself by asking what is the mind without thoughts? Where is the space of our consciousness? And, how finely can we slice moments of consciousness? Do we ever arrive at a quantum of consciousness?Episode 7.

A Skeptic's Path to Enlightenment

If the mind is our thoughts, then what is it that observes those thoughts? What are we without thoughts? Do we ever truly see an object, or only its mental reconstruction? Though we are all convinced that we have one, science has no agreed definition for consciousness or mind. Even subjectively, the mind is elusive, difficult to pin to any specific mental experience.Episode 6.

— We each have a quiet center at the core of our being. Living in the world provides a multitude of opportunities to distract us from this. Instead of peace, we experience stress, turmoil, and suffering of all kinds. These experiences are not necessary ones. It is possible to live in the world and transcend suffering. What this requires is understanding and connecting with the enormous power of the mind. The mind training program of A Course in Miracles aims to remove the barriers to accessing the quiet center, and beyond that, the limitless love that is our true nature. In her blog, LivingfromtheQuietCenter.com, and in her mindfulness coaching work, Cristina Sorrentino Schmalisch shares ideas and practices inspired by A Course in Miracles, with the goal of promoting the experience of peace and enduring well-being. Valeria Teles interviews Cristina Sorrentino Schmalisch, PhD, MSW — She is a psychotherapist and mindfulness coach.  In her therapy practice, she specializes in treating anxiety and psychological trauma, using frameworks in psychology and neuroscience to help her clients heal and resource their internal world. In her coaching work, she supports her clients in learning to live their lives from their quiet center.  Cristina received her bachelor's degree in psychology from McGill University, her doctorate in brain and cognitive science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and her master's in social work from the School of Social Work at Boston University. Before becoming a psychotherapist, she was a researcher in child development in the psychology departments at New York University and Stanford University. While training as a psychotherapist, she also participated in clinical research on the nature and treatment of hoarding disorder. She is a co-author of a book on hoarding and three research and clinical articles on hoarding. Cristina was introduced to meditation and to the ancient teachings of Hinduism over 20 years ago through attending yoga classes in the ISHTA tradition. She later meditated with a sangha grounded in the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, with an emphasis on non-judgment and loving awareness. She also studied Emei Qi Gong and learned to heal strong emotion to better access the calm center. Ten years ago, Cristina was introduced by a colleague to Gary's Renard's book, The Disappearance of the Universe, which is an entertaining and informative introduction to the book, A Course in Miracles. She has been a student of the Course ever since. Since March of 2020, she has been writing a blog about personal peace inspired by A Course in Miracles.  To learn more about Cristina Sorrentino Schmalisch and her work, please visit: livingfromthequietcenter.com     — This podcast is a quest for well-being, a quest for a meaningful life through the exploration of fundamental truths, enlightening ideas, insights on physical, mental, and spiritual health.
