The last few weeks I have spent travelling on the road. Firstly doing a series of talks for Pannar Seed International in Delmas and Klerksdorp and last week to Nelspruit in Mpumalanga. I felt really silly about that trip because I didn’t know they had an airport in Nelspruit and so I ended up driving over 330kms from Johannesburg. This kind of driving is really good time for contemplating your life and the direction it takes or the challenges you are facing.
Anyway one of the joy’s in my life is discovering amazing new podcasts from time to time. One of? these is called Living Dialogues hosted by Duncan Campbell. These podcasts are extremely provocative in the selection of guests and the manner in which the interviews or discussions take place. The guests are people who the mainstream science would consider to be on the fringe. Certainly many of them are unknown to me and I am listening to the familiar names slowly but surely. There are multiple dialogues because the interviews tend to be broken up into segments less then 30 minutes in duration.
Here’s some of my favourite dialogues:
- Joseph Chilton Pearce: author of numerous books like Crack in the Cosmic Egg and Magical Child. He’s work was referenced in a article Life Within The Machine, also published in Biophile article on the impact of television on development of children. Reading some of his interviews has confirmed my own research into the psychological impact of technology.
- Byron Katie: this interview is with her husband Stephen Mitchell, a very famous translator of ancient and Eastern text like the Tao Te Ching. Byron Katie is the creator of The Work, a revolutionary way of asking simply questions to accept things as they are and gain inner peace and acceptance. I first encountered her on the Conscious Media Network
If you found any of these dialogues fascinating I’d love to hear your comments…
