What do we do when we feel purposeless? Where do we turn when the vital energy is sucked from life? 

Original full video version here

As the bleak statistics of the mental health epidemic demonstrate, for many, there is no clear answer. This disconnection from meaning and purpose, this depression of the soul, is devouring the psyche of millions. It's left us struggling to numb the pain through pathology, distraction, consumption, and ego games. Of course, none of the above brings us any closer to the deeper purpose we seek. They leave us thirstier for something real than we were to begin with.

So, in this transmission, we'll confront this 'soul sickness' through the wisdom of luminaries like Carl Jung, Terence McKenna, Dr. Lisa Miller, and more. We'll also riff on some ways we might even be able to overcome it.

Have you ever felt like there's more to your psyche than meets the eye? Have you had strange dreams that seem significant but you can't quite make sense of? Do you find yourself drawn to certain kinds of stories or wonder why humans, in general, seem to tell the same kinds of stories over and over again? Well, it’s not just you. For decades the philosophy of Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung has captivated millions. Jung's notions of the collective unconscious and the archetypes that live within it are, without a doubt, some of his most intriguing ideas. In this transmission, we’ll explore this realm of the collective unconscious and how it shapes not only the above but the very nature of reality.

Visionary art legend, Andrew "Android" Jones returns to the mind meld! A couple of months back, Andrew awoke to one of his worst fears — News that his beloved studio was up in flames.

By the time he arrived at the scene the structure, filled with countless irreplaceable art pieces and hundreds of thousands of dollars in gear, was completely engulfed in flames. As soon as he saw it, he knew it would be a total loss. I've been wanting to talk to Android ever since I heard the news. I'll be honest, the lucidity, wisdom, and real transformation Android embodies throughout this conversation took me by surprise.

The shadow is one of the most well-known pieces of Psychiatrist, Carl Jung's philosophical legacy. This dark, unconscious part of the psyche is both deeply fascinating and incredibly misunderstood, not to mention difficult to make tangible. How do you explore or work on something you aren’t conscious of? That said, it can be done, and doing so is vitally important for knowing who you truly are, healing, and reaching your potential. So in this transmission, we’re going to explore the shadow and the philosophy of Carl Jung from a number of angles in an effort to both help shed light on it and to begin to understand how we can actually work with it.

*This is best consumed in its original form as a video wonder-dip, here.*

"The power of positive thinking" is a phrase that feels so cliche that I can hardly say it without gagging. Jadedness aside, is there something to it? Can you really "rewire" yourself to be more positive and successful?

In short, yes. Quite a bit of research has been done on various forms of visualization, meditation, and positive psychology exercises. In this wonder dip, I share some potent positive psychology techniques and riff on why optimism, gratitude, and positivity, in general, are so vital.

There’s no feeling like being involved in a compelling synchronicity. It’s as if something orchestrated a meaningful glitch in the matrix just for you. But why? What is synchronicity? What does it tell us about the nature of reality? Why is it especially important in our time? In this wonder dip, we’ll dive into those questions and more through the lens of the philosophy of the man who coined the term, Psychiatrist and philosopher, Carl Jung.
