I had a wonderful time talking with Nathan Thompson for his Escaping Samsara podcast, which presents a very concrete but also open-minded approach to spiritual practice. I’ve known Nathan for a while, and admire the life he has carved out for himself in Asia, teaching yoga, exploring the mystery, and keeping his brain sharp. His podcast asks folks about their personal spiritual and mind-hack journeys, from a nerdy but still transformative angle. For my episode, “The Chaos Path,” we left High Weirdness to the side and delved into some yarns and reflections on my own pathless path over the years.
