Mindrolling welcomes back its co-founder David Silver and longtime friend Danny Goldberg for episode 500!
In this special installment of the Mindrolling podcast, the group reflects on the question, “Are we living in the darkest hour of a dark age?” and explores different sources of light that can guide us through the darkness.
“I think we have to look towards spirituality and religion for the answers to try to mediate unbridled materialism, which we know is a death trap.” – Danny Goldberg
In this episode, the group talks about:
- Looking towards spirituality and religion for the answers to humanity’s biggest problems
- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s belief that our era of human history is “the darkest hour of the Dark Ages”
- Ram Dass and Alan Watts – and the theme of interconnectedness found at the heart of their teachings
