In this episode we ask two questions which are highly elusive: what does ‘spiritual’ mean and what does it mean to live a spiritual life? Although we do not arrive at a clear and concise answer to these questions, we do uncover some fascinating connections (and disconnections) between spiritual life and freedom, work, religion and happiness.

Podcast cover

In this episode we speak with Carl Asuruf about the discoveries he has made about techniques of embodiment and how they coalesce indivisibly with emotional, psychic and intellectual habits. We explore this particularly through the lens of Feldenkrais and Traditional Chinese Medicine, and discover that both are less about treating specific ailments and more about offering the tools to navigate the basic conditions of human life.

Rank #6: 005 Contemporary Spiritual Life – Matthew Sharpe on Stoic Contemplation and Philosophy as a Way of Life

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode we are joined by Matthew Sharpe – Associate Professor of Philosophy at Deakin University – in order to explore the tremendous richness of ancient western contemplative techniques and practices. In particular, we explore the views and practices of the Stoics and rescue the ancient meaning of the philosopher as he or she who loves wisdom. In part, this follows from the ideas of the 20th century French philosopher, Pierre Hadot, and his conception of ‘philosophy as a way of life.’

Rank #7: 004 Contemporary Spiritual Life – Peter Ujvari on Yoga in the 21st Century

Podcast cover
Read more

Everyone knows about yoga, and many people participate in it. But as we mentioned in the earlier episodes, there seems to be a rather large abyss between the Indian tradition of yoga – which has its roots in the early Upanishads (perhaps even earlier) and flowered especially under the hand of Patanjali in the 8th century – to what we see and maybe practice now in the west. Of all the Indian or East Asian traditions to gain a foothold in the west, none have been more successful than yoga. But how much does contemporary yoga practice distort or even contradict the aims and techniques of traditional Indian yoga?  In this episode, we’re very fortunate to be joined Peter Ujvari, who is a mature practitioner and teacher of Shadow Yoga, as well as being a scholar of European philosophy.

Rank #8: 001 Contemporary Spiritual Life—East-West Spiritual Encounters: 19th & 20th Century

Podcast cover
Read more

East-West Spiritual Encounters—Historical Reflections

Contemporary spiritual life is unimaginable without yoga mats, Buddha statues and mindfulness practices. In order to unmask this, we undertake a brief recent history of East-West dialogue or transmission. Beginning in the 19th century, we examine the way Indian and East Asian spiritual traditions shifted from being objects of colonialist denigration, into objects of veneration (and reification). In this episode we explore the rise and fall of Theosophy, the transmission of Japanese Zen and Tibetan Buddhism into America and the relationship between counter culture and ‘eastern’ traditions and practices.

East-West Spiritual Encounters in the 21st Century
Where Are We Now?

In this episode we (mostly) leave aside the history of east-west spiritual transmission, and ask ‘where has it actually led us to?’ We examine the relationship between Buddhism and science, Yoga and the body and the New Age connection to ‘wellness.’ In doing so, we uncover a vexing tension between materialism and spiritual life in the 21st century – a materialism that is in part connected with scientific knowledge (neuroscience and evolutionary theory) and in part the political and economic conditions of unfettered capitalism.
