53. Addiction Recovery Through Conscious Connection. With Dheep Matharu

53. Addiction Recovery Through Conscious Connection. With Dheep Matharu

August 23, 2019

Recovery from addiction? Firstly is it possible? There are many schools of thought and practice when it comes to recovery. You may have heard of a higher power, or god mentioned if you've ever come across the anonymous rooms. On this episode we go one step further and delve deep into what an actual conscious connection with God is like and how it helped our guest in the most unexpected of ways through her recovery.

Think "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari".

 

We also delve deep into addiction as a spiritual illness, psychic corruption and why putting things down to 'being under the influence' alone may be leading us to miss out on a profound spiritual experience.

50. Does violence give the disenfranchised meaning?

August 13, 2019

Hey guys!

This is quick episode with some thoughts I've been having about what causes young men to pick up weapons and commit heinous acts of violence. Could it be giving them a sense of meaning? a way to make a dent in the society and culture they've found themselves in? Totally off the cuff, get in touch if you agree, or disagree or want to weigh in on the conversation.
