Rank #1: 056: Jeremy Albertsen - Navigating the Obstacles to Oneness
Jeremy is also a gardener, musician, poet, and artist.
I first met Jeremy in 2018 while attending the New Warrior Training Adventure run by the ManKind Project in Western Australia. Jeremy was a facilitator and guided me through a particularly challenging experience at the workshop. I was intrigued by Jeremy's compassionate and grounded nature as he interacted with me and others even in demanding situations.
In this episode, Jeremy and I talk about the practicalities and obstacles to experiencing states of oneness, how to tune into different frequencies of consciousness, the process of letting go of an undesired habit, and much more.
Please enjoy this insightful and heartfelt talk with Jeremy Albertsen.

Rank #2: 055: Kemane Bâ – On Slow Growth, Self-Honesty, and Practices for Restoring Inner Harmony
I first learned about Kemane through the marvellous Simon Höfer while I was living in Berlin. Simon told me of Kemane's various explorations into consciousness during dreams states and meditation, and also introduced me to his creative work.
In each animation, painting, and song, I sensed Kemane's deep appreciation and curiosity for life. Kemane's art has frequently brought me to states of wondrous calm and has been a reminder for me to walk gently on my journey.
It's now been four years that I've followed Kemane's work online and I've finally invited him to the podcast - and I'm very glad I did!
In this long-form discussion, we dive deep into the origins of Kemane's journey, different approaches to self-growth, daytime lucidity, social media fasting, and much more.
Please enjoy this nutritious discussion with the delightful Kemane Bâ.

Rank #4: 053: Pausing the Podcast + The Courage to Create (new video series)
I realised I was forcing myself to produce episode after episode from a place of fear instead of a genuine desire to create.
I forced myself to keep producing episodes because I thought if I stopped, you might lose interest in what I’m doing and never come back. Sounds familiar, right?
So in this episode, I explain what kept me in this fear as well as the new agreement I've made with myself to stop creating if I’m not having fun or being kind to myself.
Also, did somebody say ‘new video series?’ Yes, yes they did! Tune-in to learn about the new series where I will be exploring the courage to express my creativity openly.
(Note: Apologies for the clicking sound in this episode. I recorded this with my earbuds and the microphone was tapping against the zip of my jacket every time I moved :/)
