Episode Outline:                       

  • Before The Videos – Most people who are familiar with JP Sears know him for his satirical videos, which cover a plethora of things ranging from meditation to gluten intolerance, vegetarianism, ayahuasca and more. But there’s also another side of JP that is very wise and heartfelt which JP humorously elaborates on while discussing his introduction to the spiritual path.
  • Authentically Goofy – JP talks about the evolution of his videos and how the process helped him to grow—recognizing that he was expressing who he thought he was supposed to be rather than who he actually was, ultimately leading to him giving himself permission to be his authentic self, which is a unique blend of seriousness and comedy.
  • Being Fully Me – JP and I discuss rocking the spiritual boat and how that can often lead to backlash from others. We also discuss how to deal with said backlash and disapproval, working with people pleasing tendencies, and how to stop playing it so safe in life, aka: being more of our true self.
  • Mirroring Practice – JP shares a profound mirroring practice that helps us to become more familiar with the projections we put on other people (both good and bad) as well as the projections they put onto us.
  • Spiritual Bypassing – JP and I discuss spiritual bypassing as a natural part of spiritual evolution but why it’s something that eventually does need to be addressed. We also talk about becoming more whole and connected with our emotions. I also share an embarrassing story about “Namaste
  • What Do I Think About That? – JP and I share some thoughts and encouragement for those newly on the spiritual path including finding what works for you, checking in with your own thoughts about what teachers are saying or what you’re reading and giving yourself permission to not only agree, but to also disagree and more.
