Ep 574 – The Enneagram with Carole Whittaker, P2

Carole explains the habits of mind in the development of personality and how to avoid type-casting and pigeonholing when studying the Enneagram personality types.

Ep 573 – The Enneagram with Carole Whittaker, P1

Today Glenn sits down with Carole Whittaker, a teacher on the Enneagram (which is a fascinating tool for personality typing).  Carole experienced a crisis of faith from her Catholic upbringing while she earned a PhD in Chemistry and began seeing that life outside her cultural faith bubble was different that what she had previously believed.  After some great personal challenges, Carole experienced a spiritual reawakening, and the Enneagram played an important role.   Part one of this conversation explores Carole’s background and story of faith crisis.  Part two goes into more depth on the Enneagram and the neurological habits we develop that color the different ways we view and experience the world.  It is a fascinating two-part series.  Enjoy.

Ep 572: God over Good with Luke Norsworthy

What if you dedicated your life to a certain direction.  You put all your eggs in one basket,  and then came to the stark realization that not only is the basket not really a basket, but maybe your eggs aren’t even really eggs?

Sound familiar at all?

Luke Norsworthy is a Christian Pastor who experienced a faith crisis when he saw that the Bible and his expectations of God didn’t really stack up against reality.  Luke recently wrote about his faith crisis in the book God over Good.  Luke also runs a weekly podcast called Newsworthy with Norsworthy and is a 7 on the Enneagram.  Just like me.   Enjoy!

Ep 571 – From LDS to LSD: Consciousness, Psychedelics, and the Meaning of Life with Micah Nickolaisen

Glenn continues his informal probings into the informal questions raised in this informal series on the meaning of life.  This time with Micah Nickolaisen.  Enjoy.

Ep 569 – The Man Behind the Curtain

What do you do when you discover the man behind the curtain? Do you walk away and trash it all because of the deception? Or do you keep pulling those levers and put on a really great show in the name of something better? Today’s guest is Anthony D Miller, who talks about his faith crisis, his inner voice, the trouble with differentiation, his commitment to serving those around him, and a bunch of other great stuff. Enjoy.

Ep 568 – Making Space for Me in a Hostile World, P2

This is part 2 of my conversation with Tami.

Ep 567 – Making Space for Me in a Hostile World, P1

How can you hold on to those things that are most important while discarding the things that harm you? Today Glenn sits down with long time friend Tami Whiting to discuss her INCREDIBLE book “Making Space for Me.” Tami lived a very rough life, found community in unexpected places, and then eventually had to walk away. That description does not do her story justice. You just have to hear it to believe it.

Ep 564 – The Meaning of Life: Brady Bluhm, P2

In part two, Brady explains how he rediscovered and redefined “God.” Is suffering really the best teacher? What is the difference between Lying and Lies?
This 2-part interview with Brady is the 2nd installment of IOT’s ongoing “Meaning of Life” series. Enjoy!

Ep 563 – The Meaning of Life: Brady Bluhm, P1

He was the voice of Christopher Robin from the Winnie the Pooh movies, the blind kid from Dumb and Dumber, and a devoted believing Mormon. Now that is all in the past. What is in the “NOW” is a very interesting and profound view on The Meaning of Life. This 2-part interview with Brady is the 2nd installment of IOT’s ongoing “Meaning of Life” series. Enjoy!

Ep 562 – Temple Ch-Cha-Changes

Glenn sits down with Eric (aka “Weird Alma”) to discuss his new parody song “Temple Changes” in response to (duh) the recent LDS temple changes by the recent ex-Mormon church.
