Zach Bush: The Second Birth of Humanity

9/30/2021
In some ways this conversation serves as Part 2 of our first podcast with Zach Bush, The Real Roots of Disease. However, this conversation is so expansive in scope — from the very micro of what is occurring right now in your small intestine to the hyper macro of the spiritual future of humanity – that no one description can encompass its breadth. Zach’s philosophy of medicine, human health, and the meaning of life is evolving and coalescing at this very moment; this is simply a 2-hour...

Commusings: Falling...

We strut through life confident that we are the thinker of our thoughts and feeler of our feelings. But, of course, that conception of reality is itself just a thought or a feeling.

Charles Eisenstein: The Origin of the Wrongness in the World

8/19/2021
This audio workshop is an extended excerpt of Charles Eisenstein's Commune course, Political Hope. Our politics run on a mentality of war, and war mentality rests on the story of separation.

If our go-to solution is to find the enemy and defeat them by force, we become blind to any other way of solving problems.

Commusings: The Technology of Community by Jake Laub

8/17/2021

Fortunately, there is a simpler option — as old as human history. To sign up for our weekly Commusings newsletter, visit onecommune.com.
