phileena and ashton

Phileena Heuertz is one of my favorite voices in the contemplative space today. In short, she and her husband, Chris Heuertz, have both been very pivotal in my spiritual journey and walk into the practices of contemplation over the last couple years.

She joins us in this latest episode as we discuss her memoir, Pilgrimage of a Soul. You’ll hear in this interview that it is a beautiful reflection on her story into awareness and awakening of the true self.

Podcast 57: Loveable with Dr. Kelly Flanagan

LTMP Flanagan

Dr. Flanagan is a clinical psychologist and a father known to millions for the letters he writes to his children and shares on his blog.

On March 24th of this year, Kelly released his latest book entitled Loveable: Embracing What Is Truest About You, So You Can Truly Embrace Your Life. Loveable is written to the little one in each of us, who is all too ready to be reminded: you are enough, you are not alone, and you matter.

In Loveable, Dr. Flanagan reveals the core insight gleaned from his years of clinical work: you are here for a reason, yet you cannot truly awaken to it until you have first embraced your truest, worthiest self and then allowed yourself to be truly embraced by others.

Weaving heart-warming storytelling, gentle insights, and the wisdom of Dr. Flanagan’s Christian tradition—including his belief that we are all “the living, breathing bearers of the eternal, transcendent, and limitless Love that spun the planets and hung the stars”—these pages invite you to remember the name you were given before all other names: Loveable.

The Best of 2016 Let The Music Play Podcast

Dearest music maker,

I am so grateful for you joining me on the journey of making music with our lives. 2016 was a wonderful and beautiful year for Let The Music Play Podcast.

I remember the first time I ever interviewed someone twelve months ago. I didn’t know how to work the recording device and had no idea how much of an art form interviewing someone is. Nevertheless, I kept hitting record and asking my heroes, mystics, authors, artists, sages, and philosophers about the music they make with their life, relationships, and careers.

In this episode you will find a few of the highlights from the past year’s interviews. Enjoy!

And a BIG thank you goes out to Ryan O’Neal of Sleeping At Last for providing the music playing behind all of this wisdom shared!

Godspeed,

Ashton
