Do you have to "believe in God" to Be a Christian? with John Vervaeke and Rafe Kelley

Paul VanderKlay's Podcast

This follows up on the last Rafe Kelley conversation. Rafe is figuring how what he does believe and should believe. I think this conversation touches on many of the issues that many people are facing today.  NotesThe Spell of the Sensuous by David Abram The problem with the way of knowing that doesn't put you into right relationship with the surrounding world Da'ath, faith, continuity that brings right relationship Object oriented ontology, speculative realism, Critical of corrolationism  The only ontology that we admit is our experience, our experience shouldn't constitute half of ontology Getting us into the right relationship with reality as reality.  Wisdom way of knowing, Wisdom of Jesus, https://slatestarcodex.com/2019/10/30/new-atheism-the-godlessness-that-failed/ Leonard Cohen Hallelujah  Christianity as our cultural father Christianity and pluralism God sacrificed his son Compelling but not compulsive Characterlogical level and the scientific level JV talking to JBP on May 30 Inverted Pascal's wager Science may only be a be able to exist in the right religious framework Dewey: democracy and science Hyper-objects You need distributed cognition in order to process hyper objects Democracy and science need distributed cognition to get us in right relationship with hyper objects Neo-platonism within Christianity A story, like the story of Christ becomes necessary for the movement to move through a society Joseph Henrick's argument in the secret to our success Culture evolve through a Darwinian process Christianity resurrection: Chesterton Center: Jesus Reformation or Axial revolution Definitive argument: not fundamentalism or utopianism Jordan Hall rate of change Conservatism or emergence Sufficient differences of degree become differences in kind Discord link.

Christianity didn't Destroy the Classical World, it Rescued it. In Conversation with Rafe Kelley

Paul VanderKlay's Podcast

This is my third conversation with Rafe Kelley. You can find a playlist with all of our conversations. Rafe wants to talk about the challenge of the Enlightenment promoters to Christianity. Notes Decades in which nothing happens, and weeks within decades happen Hero vs warrior Pursuit of self-transcendence Becoming a sage is an expression of heroism as well Having to live within a story Vervaeke, the story is secondary to dialogue and practices Optimally balanced between challenge and competence The rise of superman R Scott Baker, philosopher, fantasy novels, The Darkness That Comes Before The Second Apocalypse Factions that have different answers to that question Sole purpose is to become the self-moving soul, become causal to everything else Red Cedar Circle revival of Native American beliefs Two levels of implicit religion Moral ethicReligions provide a cultural grammar that informs norms, institutions,  3 levels explicit Without the supernatural claims, act it out explicitlyYou enter into a practice with other ChristiansAccepting the Xian epistemology or ontology of the nature of being, Christ's death and resurrection Nick Winkelman Greg Allis Elite over-production Sex at dawn Evolution of play  Questions assumptions we made in the last conversation Patrick Wyman fall of rome series The spell of the sensuous The west, enlightenment, christianity The divine feminine Father culture, mother nature, divine individual Discord link.

He comes from an unusual family background (to put it mildly), and now teaches natural movement to everyone from UFC fighters to retired grandmothers. Super interesting, introspective, honest guy.

246: Rafe Kelley on The Art of Rhythm, Fluidity and Timing in Athletic Performance Training

Just Fly Performance Podcast

Today’s show brings back Rafe Kelley, owner of Evolve, Move, Play.  Rafe has experience with dozens of movement styles, playing many sports, including gymnastics, learning dance, exploring parkour and studying many forms of the martial arts and MMA styles.When it comes to human movement, and the story and history behind our movement, Rafe is my go-to expert.  Rafe’s students have ranged from world-class parkour athletes, to MMA fighters, to untrained grandmothers.  He has been a two time guest on this podcast, and offers knowledge from a source that is largely un-touched by mainstream strength and athletic development.On previous shows, I have talked with Rafe about our movement roots, structured vs. unstructured training, play based training, and emotional and cognitive links between play, performance and adaptation.  Episode #174 was one of the most transformative episodes I had done in terms of how it immediately impacted my work in my own group training sessions afterwards.On this show, I wanted to tap into more of Rafe’s knowledge of human movement in terms of his experience with martial arts, fighting and modern dance.  The sports performance industry talks about force a lot, but it is critical to look at the best athletes in the world on a level comparing to them with dancers, instead of powerlifters, to get a fuller understanding of the required timings and rhythms.  Today’s podcast is a wonderful experience in discussing the deeper movement qualities that really make elite athletes and how we can consider those qualities of rhythm and fluidity in our own training designs.Today’s episode is brought to you by SimpliFaster and Lost Empire Herbs.  For 15% off your Lost Empire Herbs order, head to www.lostempireherbs.com/justflyView more podcast episodes at the podcast homepage.Timestamps and Main Points6:20 Discussing complexity in training, and how to get more work and effectiveness in a shorter period of time13:49 Quantifying fatigue in basketball and parkour, and concepts on how risk increases session fatigue, and extreme depth landings in parkour23:34 Philosophy on movement quality in the martial arts, parkour, and athletic movement in general, and questions on if Rafe takes time out of parkour itself to spend time on movement quality35:53 Rhythmic qualities of movement in athletics, and how to improve athletic performance from a rhythmic perspective55:16 Points on the use and relationship of dance and ethnic dance styles, to athletic performance1:00:08 Animal forms and flow in training and human movement“The neurological fatigue associated with a parkour session is not simply associated with how many approach runs did you do, or how big were the jumps.  It was more associated with how much risk, or how threatened your nervous system was by the jumps that you were taking on”“One of the master-keys for re-covering the capacity of my lower limb was tibial rotation drills”“When you are working with a novice athlete, a lot of times the answer is just that they need to do the thing more.  But when that doesn’t fix it, you have to ask, “why isn’t self-organization working”.”“If I initiate a punch, I want that punch to land, and I want my hand to be hard, and my body to be hard as the punch lands, but any time is it hard before it lands, is slowing me down, and wasting my energy…. how sensitive is the foot when it is hitting the ground”“The timing of force production is massive; it’s the harmony of the body as its hitting the ground; the ability to find that moment.  You have do (purposefully) do things, to get (timing)”“I think of it, kind of like music.  Every set of movements or a solution to a problem is like a set of beats.  You can have an optimal set of beats, or you can have noisy extra beats that aren’t contributing to the harmony of the piece”“What (Josef) talked about the first time I talked to him was: “When an athlete has ...

#145 | Rafe Kelley - Self Improvement Through Play and Movement

Becoming Human

Play is a powerful experience that connects us to another and teaches us about ourselves.Rafe Kelley has combined his experience with meta-learning, self-development, and physical recreation to create classes, workshops, retreats, and a community that facilitates the space for self-discovery, joy, and a sense of belonging. As people, we crave some semblance of a challenge to connect with one another. We’re fortunate enough to live in an age where the work for and demands of survival are less severe.We can access the same pathways of our experience by finding voluntary forms of play that stimulate us in ways reminiscent of another time. To learn more about Rafe’s classes and podcast go to evolvemoveplay.com

Rediscovering Movement That Brings You Joy: Rafe Kelley on PYP 451

Plant Yourself - Embracing a Plant-based Lifestyle

Rafe Kelley wants to teach you how to "move like a human."Wait, what? Don't humans naturally move like humans?Well, no. Just as you can use a knife as a flat head screwdriver, you can stick a human body at a desk, have it stare at a screen, push buttons on a keyboard, and interact with algorithms - but the knife will break, and the human will go a bit (or a lot) crazy.In short, there's a profound mismatch between what we've evolved to do and be, and what we're actually rewarded for doing and being in our civilization.And it's making us miserable, and sick, and weak. It allows us to destroy our planet. It creates the ground for convincing "alternative facts" and fake news and dangerous conspiracy theories.The mismatch makes us unable to deal with real-world problems like climate destabilization, pandemics, and pollution.Kelley isn't talking about exercise, or gym workouts. Instead, he wants to get back to natural human movement in relation to nature, embedded in the natural world, seeking joy and meaning rather than comfort and ease.The first half of our conversation took an unexpected turn for me. We explored learning theory at a very deep level, looking at the work of academics like John Vervaeke, philosophers like Nietzsche, and motor learning practitioners like Nikolai Bernstein, as well as the 4E Cognition movement.Kelley echoes the work of Barbara Tversky (listen to her episode here) by explaining that all cognition is based on metaphors of movement and location. In other words, if we aren't moving, and challenging ourselves through movement, we're really not learning in some quite profound ways.Then we looked at health - individual, communal, and planetary - and the role that returning to forms of movement based on play and joy can have on our ability to thrive in the world.What's wrong with our current culture of physical exercise: gyms, treadmills, weight machines, and so on? Kelley points out that they're based on highly toxic, highly ineffective motivators: shame at our out-of-shape bodies, and abstract ideas of health.Even if those forms of movement were good for us - which they aren't - the emphasis on looking sexy and fit and/or avoiding disease is doing a terrible job of getting us to move at all. The key, according to Kelley, is to reconnect with joyful movement, the kind that all babies engage in automatically, and that our society punishes us for ("Sit still and pay attention, Howie!").All of us can take steps to reclaim our natural heritage of play - testing our edges and our limits, seeking frustration and discomfort in the service of growth and joy and deep belonging to our ecosystem and our planet.Start simply and modestly, Kelley recommends, with a walk in nature. Listen to bird song. Feel your body feeling connected, and good. And take it from there.
