The Father

In this week’s podcast I talk about traditions, values and institutions that have been brought into disrepute in our western culture.

Revelation

We have a new lexicon of terms that have been rinsed of all meaning and act as a safety blanket to shield us from the fallout of a crumbling system. But we have the tools to deal with our fear through the philosophical teachings of Stoicism and Buddhism. They help us develop a fierce level of compassion rather than a false sense of transcendence.
