Bell Hooks (1952-2021): The Cultural Politics of Love“My students tell me, we don’t want to love! We’re tired of being loving! And I say to them, if you’re tired of being loving, then you haven’t really been loving, because when you are loving you have more strength.”– bell hooks.It might seem strange for a regular white guy like me to want to mark the passing of bell hooks, a black feminist icon. It might even seem inappropriate, because ostensibly her work is not about me, or my kind of experience. Yet I do feel moved to share why people like me — and here …

I have studied, taught and practiced meditation for over 30 years. I consider meditation, arising in its endless variations, to be indispensable to spiritual development and I sing its praises regularly on this podcast. I have also occasionally spoken about my experience years ago when an intense period of mindfulness meditation triggered a multi-year siege of anxiety which began to heal only when, after much suffering, I cast off the instructions of my teachers to “just keep meditating” and got up from the cushion and fled a retreat. A few weeks ago I ran across an essay written by meditation …

Prophetic teacher, psychologist, author and poet, Bayo Akomolafe joins Terry to explore the “cracks in the world” that are opening to swallow everything we’ve been taught to believe and sense into the voices, adventures, and new worlds that are poised to emerge.  With vivid original imagination and a ruthless deep kindness, Bayo names the limits […]

By Jeff Salzman This week I welcome back my dear friend, Cindy Wigglesworth, a Teacher known and loved by many in the integral world. Several years ago, Cindy turned her considerable insight to the issue of racial reckoning in America, particularly on the part of privileged white people, and has helped build a vanguard program of diversity training through her church, Unity of Houston. As always with Sister Cindy, whether we’re talking about spiritual intelligence or Star Trek, I received a transmission of new consciousness in this conversation, and ended it with an enlarged view of what is happening and …

I’d often find that the words were exactly appropriate for the moment, a perfect guide from the subconscious. Invariably those songs would be from the band James.I delved back into the music, and listened with new ears to songs that outlined the process of personal growth and awakening. I came to the conclusion that they must have been …

Consider, friend, as you pass by,as you are now, so once was I.As I am now, you too shall be.Prepare, therefore, to follow me. This famous epitaph from a Scottish tombstone sums up the central dilemma of human existence: it ends in death. But is death the end? All peoples throughout history have intuited that there is more to this life than meets the eye. And they (we!) have created endless practices and art forms to invoke reality beyond time and space. In the spirit of preparation and good cheer, I share some ideas and poetry that have come in …
