#17 Phil Drysdale on the stages of deconstructing Christianity and transforming your pain

The Signature Boss

Todays guest is Phil Drysdale. I first found Phil on Instagram because of his hilarious christian deconstruction memes: https://www.instagram.com/phildrysdale/ This is the second episode on this podcast about faith deconstruction, I have done one before with Joshua Harris, the author of I kissed dating goodbye, if you haven’t listened to that one, that might be interesting for you too. Phil Drysdale helps people loose their faith :) That is what his bio says but it’s much much more than that. When you deconstruct christianity or any other faith you are not set out to loose it. That is not the intention. You have questions. You are understanding , knowing new things from different perspectives. Things that once you. Know them you just cannot un-know them , it’s impossible, there is no turning back. Phil went through this process himself , is going through it, we are never done. And he simply helps people through the stage they are at. It’s one thing we cover extensively in this episode : the different psychological stages of growth and development and what they mean in the christian context , in a deconstruction context. Personally, I have often struggled with those stages and relating to people in stages that I have outgrown and relating to my former self in those former stages. That’s something Phil explains so generously in this conversation. We also speak about what to do with those difficult emotions like pain, shame , guilt once you are not a christian anymore. How to transform those emotions, we talk about shadow work and so many other things If you are a deconstructing christian , or an ex-christian you are going to find this episode so enlightening and healing , there is no doubt in my mind. Hope you enjoy this episode and it makes you feel less alone on your journey! Follow Phil here and check out the Deconstruction Network he created: https://www.phildrysdale.com/

Desert Voices: Spiritual Conversations

Welcome to Winter 2021…We all hoped to say goodbye to the heartache, confusion, isolation, and pain 2020 ushered in...well that lasted 6 days. Whatever your politics, the events of January 6th left us all with no doubt...Winter has come (a nod to all of us who were obsessed with GOT). Winter is a time when the earth goes dormant. Trees have lost their leaves to hunker down and bear the winter storms. Snow falls (in some places), cold sets in, and the isolation in COVID season seems unending.Winter can be harsh...it can also be majestic and breathtaking. Join us as we kick off Winter 2021 with deconstructionist Phil Drysdale. In this NEW episode, we talk about Stories and why they are important…Spirituality is a way of framing meaning. It is a way of trying to give meaning to whatever the hell is going on right now and what it means to be human in the midst of itWe look at data asking Phil what data around deconstruction should be paying attention to and why?Phil’s unparalleled humor drew us to his Instagram page and led us to this conversation! COVID still rages and winter is harsh... but we can still start 2021 off with laughter, deconstruction, and storytelling! STAY SAFE AND COME DANCE IN THE SNOW WITH US!Desertvoices.comSupport the show (https://www.patreon.com/preview/7914a4f7860a4376adacf88925a49433)

100 - Phil Drysdale ft. Tilly - My Personal Deconstruction Journey

The Phil Drysdale Show

One of the most frequent questions I get is if there is anywhere I share my story of faith and deconstruction. I am frequently asked about it on podcasts but usually give just a 5 minute overview and so I figured for this 100th episode milestone I'd sit down with my wife and we'd talk about my journey. (If you give her some love I might be able to talk her into coming on and telling her story at some point!)If you want to watch these podcasts you can do so on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/phildrysdaleIf you'd like to connect with others deconstructing in your area check out https://www.thedeconstructionnetwork.comIf you'd like to support what I'm doing by putting out all my content for free head over to https://www.phildrysdale.com/partner
