Aging, Dying and Living in the Anthropocene - TruthLover #23 with Joan Tollifson

Aging, Dying and Living in the Anthropocene - TruthLover #23 with Joan Tollifson

November 29, 2019

Joining us today is Joan Tollifson, she is a writer and devotee of life. Her latest book, Death: The End of Self-Improvement, celebrates the great stripping process of aging, dying, living, and spiritual awakening. Joan sees awakening as never-ending and always only Now. She has roots in both Buddhism and Advaita, but belongs to no particular tradition.

Joan is all for genuine transformation, and distinguishes in her new book between that and an oppressive obsession with self-improvement rooted in stories of deficiency and lack. Joan celebrates imperfection and brokenness as blessings. She recently survived anal cancer, which she describes as an awakening journey. Joan is the author of four previous books: Bare-Bones Meditation, Awake in the Heartland, Painting the Sidewalk with Water, and Nothing to Grasp. She lives in Oregon, USA.

Identity, Psychedelics, UFOs, Revolution and Crypto: Part 1 - TruthLover #20 with MaxAnte

Identity, Psychedelics, UFOs, Revolution and Crypto: Part 1 - TruthLover #20 with MaxAnte

October 11, 2019

Today's guest is MaxAnte - after living a socially predictable life in Australia for 40 odd years, raising a family, and following 25 years of intensive Buddhist meditation, which included months of silence in India, time as a monk in Burma, MaxAnte only really came to life after he let go of nearly all his passions and family. Taking just 2 bags, he set out on what would become a 7 year non-stop round the world quest to the know the truth behind what was going on here. This intensified after reading Jed McKenna in 2013, where he realised that what the Buddha had said was true, that full awakening was truly possible.

What followed were a series of stranger and stranger adventures through Asia, Thailand, Europe, Canada, the US… until finally getting to Mexico. It was only upon arriving in Mexico and following the feedback of where life was taking him, that it became clear what full and complete surrender really was about. Alone, having already lost everything, MaxAnte allowed himself to be taken by an extreme shaman medical doctor into the medicine journey of the Buffo toad, the most potent source of 5-MeO-DMT. It was here in Feb 2015, that MaxAnte's NDE on the beaches of Tulum, a complete life reset, that would then reveal and reinvent his entire view on what life on Earth was about.

The Intimacy of Sharing Consciousness: Moving From I to We - TruthLover  #14 with Adam Chacksfield

The Intimacy of Sharing Consciousness: Moving From I to We - TruthLover #14 with Adam Chacksfield

November 1, 2018

Our guest this time is Adam Chacksfield - he offers heart-centered nondual spiritual teaching in North America, Europe, and online, inviting individuals and groups to fall open. After a series of profound realizations, he left his early career as a political science professor to devote himself to spiritual exploration. Years later, with Peter Fenner's encouragement and support, Adam started to share nondual awareness. He developed the four-month “Falling Open” course as a catalyst for the awakening of the mind, heart, and body.

In 2011, moved by his deep appreciation for the value of spiritual community, Adam founded the Center for Nondual Awareness to support those called to share nonduality. Inspired by a spontaneous experience of “we-consciousness,” Adam is currently exploring the activation of shared consciousness within the Teacher Body of the Evolutionary Collective. He's also created the “Map of Relationship Paradigms” and developed “WE-Relating,” an online course that takes relationships into this new paradigm beyond separation.
