The Desert Sanctuary

Spirit * Soul * Body

You may have noticed that I’m not writing as much on this site. The reason is that I have been publishing most of my writing at:

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/thedesertsanctuary/

Right now, I won’t be posting in both places; but please keep your subscription here, because all the podcasts and announcement, etc. are still released here. This is still the headquarters for the Desert Sanctuary.

Glenn Klein is an intersting fellow. He has been in radio for a long time, but he chose this interesting moniker for his podcast that is, among other things, provocative. It boasts two promises two objectives:

  • Celebrating Sexuality
  • Exposing Religion

What Glenn doesn’t say up front is that he is also a life coach, thus the “fun with a purpose” and “beautiful humans” expressions heard often. In the end, I don’t know what I was worried about – I don’t have any sponsors and this was probably one of the top 5 conversations I’ve had!

If you have a problem with this episode, Please email: grow@coachglennklein.com

Find Glenn on the Sex in the Pews website.

Roy Etheridge is a person I met at my first Black Lives Matter rally. He is a truck driver, father / husband, and recording artist (known as Bezdawg). I wanted to talk to him because he is a normal person as much as any of us are. We talked about his brush with the law and his personal understanding and experience with racism.

Roy had a unique insight that I needed to hear.

Connect with Roy online on Facebook.

Look for his music under the title Bezdawg!

Roy is trying to start a business to help his community. Because of his incarceration, this is more difficult. Can you help him out, see HERE.

Mick Davis Jr. is a normal guy that organizes Black Lives Matter rallies here in my area of Missouri. I hope you hear his heart, that the best thing we can do is learn and what would Jesus do (no, I mean really–the real Jesus).

Thank you Mick!

In this episode, Dr. Paul walks us through his HCS Focussing course. He explains the 5 step process that is also available in the free course. I gave him permission to talk about my most recent focussing session. I consider a significant even in my recent past.

This episode will help if you have question about what focussing is like.
