020 Holistic Healing

November 14, 2018

I'm joined by my friend Alexander Sharone to discuss health, nutrition, and healing through holistic means. We discuss the ancient Indian medical system of ayurveda and the importance of catering an approach to the individual, rather than making broad brush strokes and generalizations about health. Towards the end, we talk about kambo, the poisonous tree frog from the Amazon that has found recent popularity for its cleansing properties.

019 Brotherhood and Camaraderie

019 Brotherhood and Camaraderie

November 8, 2018

This is a conversation with two friends from my college fraternity about how men's groups can be a supportive force in the world - especially if they operate under a code of ethics. The first line of our mission statement is "Our goal is to build better men." We talk about our experiences in leadership positions, how we taught our members to respect women, and yes, our party experiences as well. Towards the end we talk psychedelics and have a potent discussion on American politics.

018 Tantra For Couples

018 Tantra For Couples

October 28, 2018
Back by popular demand, Halo is in studio once again for another episode about tantra. Having covered the broader system of tantra in episode 12 - The Tantric Path, we go more specifically into the aspects of tantra that address sexuality. We discuss sexual alchemy between the masculine and feminine and how to access deeper sexual experiences through sexual cultivation and by moving the energy up the spine by using the breath and other techniques.

017 Let’s Talk About Death!

017 Let’s Talk About Death!

October 21, 2018

Isn't it weird that we're all going to die and yet nobody talks about it? What lies on the other side is one of the greatest mysteries that we will all have to face and that uncertainty is very uncomfortable for some. Join me and my guest Sarah Makota as we talk about the transition out of the world of the living and how to process grief and sadness over loved ones who have departed. We also take a look at different cultural views on death and discuss the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.

016 Psychology and Psychedelics

016 Psychology and Psychedelics

October 14, 2018

I am joined today by clinical psychologist Dr. Loi Medvin to discuss American culture and society in the context of mental health. In particular, we discuss some hot button issues like masculine/feminine dynamics and a sense of separation that many of us are feeling these days. In the last half of the episode, I ask Dr. Loi about her experiences with psychedelic plants and we both tell tales of unusual and non-ordinary states of consciousness and perception.

015 Ayahuasca and the Master Plants

015 Ayahuasca and the Master Plants

October 8, 2018

We're back to one of my favorite topics - Ayahuasca. My guest today is Ayah Buonaugurio and we discussed her studies with ayahuasca and the "master plants" during her periods of shamanic apprenticeship. We talk about the processes one can undergo during shamanic ceremonies and vision quests and how to find the courage to do deep inner work, as well as what to do if you feel scared or overwhelmed in the middle of a psychedelic journey. The medicine path is not easy! We go into depth about what it really takes.

"Ayah is a professional yoga teacher, dancer, Thai massage therapist, legally ordained spiritual minister, as well as women's health advocate and life coach in the field of womb wellness.

She has been nurturing relationships in female communities around the globe. Traveling internationally, she has projects in Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Peru, and Colombia, exchanging skills and sharing sacred dances, water prayers, sharing womb wisdom arts, and vitality practices."

Jasmyn is back to talk more in depth about her role as a temple courtesan. She was my guest on episode 4, Intimacy and Sexual Healing, and we talked further about how she creates intimate experiences of sacred sexuality that involve sensual and sexual touch as well as her journey of personal development that has brought her the skills to be able to provide a high quality service to her clients.

013 Magic Mushrooms and Teleportation

013 Magic Mushrooms and Teleportation

September 23, 2018

This is my first solo episode and today I'll be telling the story of when I ate a huge dose of 7g of psilocybin magic mushrooms and fell off the edge of the universe! It was my peak experience from a period of going deeper and deeper with mushrooms and taught me a greater level of humility and respect for that fungus.

012 The Tantric Path

012 The Tantric Path

September 16, 2018

Many people know that tantra is associated with sexuality but it goes much, much deeper than that. It's a system that embraces all the aspects of who we are and helps us to awaken more deeply into our true nature. It's one of the oldest spiritual traditions on Earth and personally I find it refreshing to learn about a system that embraces sex instead of shames it and acknowledges the dark instead of rejecting it. That's why I brought in my friend Halo Seronko to tell us all about it. She has been studying tantra for many years and teaches sexual cultivation and jade egg practices to women. We had such a rich and deep conversation and this is definitely one of my favorite episodes so far.

011 Burning Man and Transformational Festivals

011 Burning Man and Transformational Festivals

September 9, 2018

Burning Man just ended last weekend and I sit down with some friends to discuss their experiences. BM is one of the largest "transformational festivals" in the world - gatherings that aim to bring people together through music, dance, art, and immersive experiences that challenge one to adventure, stretch their limits, and explore new boundaries.
