Celebrate Your Eternal Heart with these Podcasts (and Video)!

I haven’t created any new videos or podcasts of my own for a while — something I hope to change this fall. One of the reasons why I have been AWOL from the world of audio and video content, is because I’ve been invited as a guest on several other podcasts. Most of these have been interested in Eternal Heart, so we’ve talked about that book — but the topics tend to be free-ranging, exploring a variety of concerns related to spirituality, contemplation, writing, and even publishing.

So, if you are looking for a new podcast or two, check out these episodes where I am in conversation with a variety of different interviewers. And if you enjoy a particular interviewer’s style, then go back and check out the other episodes from their podcast.

Spark My Muse

Spark My Muse is hosted by Lisa Colòn DeLay, author of The Wild Land Within. It’s one of my favorite podcasts, and Lisa has been warmly supportive of my work over the years (she and I both lost count of how many times I’ve been on her podcast!). Lisa was one of the first people to interview me specifically about Eternal Heart, and so our conversation was quite fascinating for me as she gave me a first look at how readers might react to the book. Check it out, and be sure to read her book as well.

Messy Jesus Business

Messy Jesus Business is hosted by Sister Julia Walsh, FSPA, whom I met a few years when leading a Celtic retreat in Wisconsin. She is a vibrant, conscious and engaged young religious sister, passionate about spirituality, art and justice. In our conversation she asked me about discovering my vocation as a spiritual director and spiritual teacher; she was very interested in my pagan background but also my  love for the mystics and contemplatives of Christianity and beyond, and how the mystics not only inspire us but inform a healthy approach to the intersection between contemplation and justice.

Methods Podcast

Another podcast that I’m honored to be a “returning guest” on is Jory Pryor’s Methods of Contemplation Podcast. He has a strong practice-orientation to contemplation: he doesn’t just want to talk about contemplative spirituality, he wants to help his listeners to engage in practices that help to cultivate a contemplative heart. In this episode, he and I explore the nature of the eternal heart, the gifts of the spirit that draw us to the Divine, and how the spiritual life can be likened to a Möbius strip.

Sacred Listening Blog

My friend Alison Umminger is, like me, a writer as well as a spiritual director; her YA novel, American Girls is a fascinating glimpse into the strange world of adolescence today; as a spiritual director, she is one of several contributors to Sacred Listening, a website and blog featuring a consortium of Ignatian-trained spiritual directors. Allison interviewed me for the blog and posted the audio there, so check it out.

Writing for Your Life

Writing for Your Life is hosted by Brian Allain. Brian has been involved in the publishing world for a number of years now, including editing the book How to Heal Our Divides, sponsoring the “Writing for Your Life” conference, and hosting a series of author interview videos on Youtube, including this one where we discuss Eternal Heart. Enjoy!
