The Shiatsu Guy Presents… Jody Patterson – Mystic Dance, Hip Hop and Enlightenment

The Shiatsu Guy Presents podcast - Jody PatersonIn episode Twelve of the podcast, Simon your host, interviews his friend Jody Patterson, about his experiences of discovering the mystical aspects of life, to discovering his spiritual teacher and joining a spiritual community.

Jody talks about his early spiritual experiences through dance, being drawn to a path of enlightenment, and life within a post-modern spiritual community, with very traditional overtones.

Jody speaks about his time of becoming a formal student of Andrew Cohen’s Evolutionary Enlightenment and becoming celibate…

We explore some of the conflicts within the community, from the traditional basis to the the issues with hierarchy and superiority.

We also look into the mess that some Western Gurus have left in their wake… and the impending responsibility of Jody’s imminent fatherhood…

This episode is a kind of Companion episode to Marc Pell’s interview, episode 005 – and if you’re interested could be the foundation to a ‘trialogue’ between Marc, Jody and myself…

The Shiatsu Guy Presents… Marc Pell – Life after a Spiritual Guru and Spiritual Community

the shiatsu guy podcast - marc pellIn episode six of the Shiatsu Guy Presents… podcast I interview my friend Marc Pell about his experience of living in a Spiritual community for a number of years, in what was essentially a social and spiritual experiment attempting to create a new enlightened culture of connectedness and individuality.

The whole international community came tumbling down when the leader, Andrew Cohen, was deposed by his senior students when they took issue with the way he was conducting himself and running the community.

In this interview we delve into what the initial attraction was to becoming involved with a spiritual community, the benefits and drawbacks as well as where it all went wrong for Andrew Cohen and EnlightenNext

I hope that you enjoy this episode as much as I did. This is the first of several episodes in this area, with a part 2 from Marc coming up and another interview in the works for a different perspective on the situation…
