Mindrolling – Ep. 526 – A Behind The Scenes Look At “The Movie of Me to the Movie of We” with Duncan Trussell

Raghu Markus and Duncan Trussell share the story behind their new book, The Movie of Me to the Movie of We.

“We are emaciated. We eat beyond what we can actually take in. We enjoy beyond enjoyment. We despair beyond despair over life’s events and that’s because we are emaciated, which is why we did this book. I think both of us felt emaciated spirituality, emaciated awareness wise.” – Raghu Markus

This week on Mindrolling, listen to Raghu and Duncan chat about:
  • Spiritual emaciation in a world of excess
  • The meaning of ‘the movie of me’
  • Pyromania within humanitarianism
  • Reflecting on caricatures of the self for brutal self-honesty
  • Meditation and experiencing our true selves
  • Our inheritance of being human
  • Spiritual community and moving from student to teacher
  • The perspective of non-judgement throughout The Movie of Me to the Movie of We
  • Paradoxes of spiritual materialism

“The reason that I like what we did, that I feel lucky, is because people get to catch a glimpse into what spiritual community means.” – Duncan Trussell
