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.

LTMP Episode 18: Fr. Richard Rohr with Ashton Gustafson

Richard Rohr

Hi friends! I am so excited to share with you in Episode 18 at Let The Music Play Podcast one of the finest men that has ever graced our planet, Fr. Richard Rohr.

Fr. Richard Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism and the Perennial Tradition. Fr. Richard is the author of numerous books, including Everything Belongs, Simplicity, The Naked Now, Breathing Under Water, Falling Upward, Immortal Diamond (my personal favorite), and Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi.

Over the last twelve months I have journeyed through the land of his ideas and insights and consider them some of the finest treasure I have found. Alas, I am overwhelmed with joy to share our conversation with you.

Enjoy! And if any of this dialogue strikes a chord within you, please support his work by visiting the Center for Action and Contemplation.
