What Does This Do For My Soul? with Daniel Thorson
Play • 1 hr 20 min

Daniel Thorson, host of Emerge podcast, and I recorded our first episode together about a year ago and at that time he was preparing to move to the Monastic Academy, which is a training center dedicated to creating wise, powerful, and loving leaders who are an unstoppable force for social and environmental peace on Earth.

In this conversation Daniel and I get into how living and working there affects his life, as well as the people around him; the sense of community and purpose…we explore many topics surrounding the concept of sense making; the process of our “making sense” of the complexity of our modern world and how that can lead to a sense of purpose, or not.
