Special guest host Jason Dunlap takes us on his journey from a Catholic upbringing through atheism to a more expansive, spiritual perspective of reality. We discuss dualistic thinking that keeps us all imprisoned in a narrow, oppressive view of each other. We also touch on topics such as transcendence, eastern mysticism, grace, and the power of presence (not to mention crazy water crystals that teach us about the nature of reality)

For a great read on transcending a dualistic frame of thinking:
