084 John Gray: Beyond Mars and Venus, Hormones, Polarity

On the threshold of my recent breakup, a friend lent me the book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus.At first, I resisted at it. I knew the book. I remember my mom watching the book's author, John Gray, on Oprah when I was 7 years old. I figured that a 27-year-old book couldn't possibly still be relevant.I was wrong. In many ways, it was refreshing to see how fundamentals truths remain so, even though societal change.That said, the world has changed a lot. How people perceive relating has changed a lot. So I had quite a few questions for Mr. Gray, and he answered them in a very enlightening fashion on my podcast.Unbeknownst to many, John actually was the youngest ever Transcendental Meditation instructor under the Maharishi, back in the '60s. Before he became a Jedi in sexual relating, he was actually on a path of sexless internal cultivation.John had a lot to say about spirituality, hormones & polarity, and even semen retention-- yes, I wasn't expecting that.

083 Marc Lewis, Ph.D.: The Biology of Desire

2012 introduced me to the darkness of the unconscious.I fell in love with a hardcore drug addict. I didn't understand addiction. I thought she just an issue with willpower. All I knew was that possessed a joie de vivre, a passion for life, a willingness to follow her instincts with the full abandon that I myself was intoxicated by.She went off to rehab and I joined a cult called OneTaste. (See my podcasts on 'When I was in a matriarchal sex cult'.)Ironically (or synchronistically), OneTaste's spiritual views were largely related to addiction recovery; "Taming the Beast" of the unconscious.We were trained to tap into our feelings, our instincts, our desires. We were all encouraged to read a book called The Biology of Desire which explained the neural mechanisms of the desire instinct and how it relates to addiction. Seven years later, I got to chat with the author, Marc Lewis, Ph.D.Marc and I discuss how the brain physically changes in response to learning, motivation, the formation of habits, and how it can pervert into unconscious tendencies. We also speak about childhood experiences that leave one vulnerable (or invulnerable) to unconscious behavior.While most of us don't consider ourselves "addicts", all of us are subject to the internal conflict between our higher intentions and lower impulses. This episode covers important perspectives on taming your own beast.For the video version of this podcast, click here: https://youtu.be/Sy5sUhMbxTE See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Rick & Morty & Archetypal Masculinity

Rick and Morty is one of the most popular TV shows due to great writing and clever plotlines. But one of the reasons for its diehard male fan base maybe how the show demonstrates elements of the male psychodrama. In this episode, Ruwan discusses a few elements of the masculine unconscious that is portrayed in the show.Music by @collin_stanley For the video version of this podcast, click here:https://youtu.be/gWdvZN9dgro See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Prometheus Rising: 4 Neural Circuits of Consciousness

Drawing from Robert Anton Wilson's Prometheus Rising, we dig into Timothy Leary's Eight Circuit Model of Consciousness. The first four circuits (bio-survival, emotional-territorial, semantic, and socio-sexual) are present in all humans. Most human behavior, individually and collectively, is unconsciously driven by these circuits. Understanding them allows us to explain and predict behavior in politics, personality, and response to the environment. Much of this episode relates to the earlier Medusa/Mother Complex and Father Wound/Hero's Journey episodes, though from a more biological level. This gives a more neurological basis for the metaphoric ideas of Carl Jung.For the video version of this podcast, click here: https://youtu.be/QgHTUimFv7Q See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Why Amoebas Wiggle: The Role of the Ego and Unifying the Unconscious

What is the point of an ego?Many spiritual folks demonize the ego as this thing to 'transcended'. But the ego is one of the most important (and human) parts of the psyche. An expressed ego is necessary to unify your unconscious elements towards creativity and away from self-sabotage.We continue today through the Hero's Journey from the Mother Complex and Father Wound to what the formed ego is "supposed to do" once it has formed. We explain how the ego evolved alongside the evolution of life (and arguably all energy and matter). We also talk about why and how amoeba wiggles.For the video version of this podcast, click here: https://youtu.be/UWxvcGfh_rU See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Father Wound & Secondary Father

The Father Wound are insecurities that come from the shortcomings of our primary role model. Many myths show slaying a father figure (i.e. Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader) because it represents a man being able to separate from his paternal shadow.
