1: Walk in the Desert

In this episode of The Deepening Place Podcast, Jye and Angela discuss meeting for the first time at the COSEBOC Conference in 2019, showing up in unfamiliar spaces to get perspectives from people “different than me,” and their desire for the podcast to be a refuge for people on a spiritual journey. The following things were also discussed:

  • conscious conversations

  • dualistic thinking can be detrimental to community

  • attachment to belief/walk in the desert

  • feeling lonely and alone in a dualistic world

  • Jye’s early years and “Matrix moment”

  • Geaux Tigers!

  • manage mind and emotions

  • road to enlightenment is a descent, not an ascent
