Do you believe in magic?
Actually, that's a shitty question and also the name of a Lovin' Spoonful song.
Sorry about that.
Let me try again.
What's your definition of magic?
For me magic is anything that pierces the veil which obscures the true nature of reality.
My guest this week is someone who's well accustomed to piercing the veil.
For the last fifteen years, Jason has explored the outer reaches of human culture and possibility, through both science fiction and journalistic expeditions into some of the world’s strangest belief systems.
My kinda dude.
In this episode we talk about magic, magick, occultism, the far-right of the occult world...and honestly, it's a 90 minute conversation what am I gonna list the whole thing out?

This week on Synchronicity I'm joined by art curator and advisor, Sarah Potter.
I was introduced to Sarah by our mutual friend, Jennifer Sodini (who is awesome and is coming on the show soon!) and boy oh boy am I glad she tuned us in to each other.
In addition to being a wonderful human being, Sarah also resides in he Hudson Valley so we got to do this episode in person.
I've spoken about it before, but the in person episodes aways carry a little bit of extra energy and this one is no different.
Sarah and I discuss pushing through fear to get to the other side, the power of community and the necessity of kindness in everything we do.
I think, nay, I know, you're gonna enjoy this one.

If you're a Netflix subscriber or you're from the UK or you're just really good at torrenting you may have seen a show recently called "The Great British Bake Off."
This show unquestionably rules and if you haven't seen it check it out.
The reason I bring it up is this week's guest, Cory Allen, is also a fan of "The British Bake Off" which adds to his reputation of guy who likes cool things.
If you're a long time listener, you may remember Cory from episode 39.
Cory hosts a wonderful podcast called The Astral Hustle which happens to be on MindPod Network .
Cory is one of the most grounded, down to earth and easygoing people I've come across in my 33 trips around the sun.
In this episode, we talk about putting practices into action when you go through tough times.
Basically, when the shit hits the fan what can we actually do that helps?
That's this episode.
And we talk about the baking show too.

This week on Synchronicity I'm joined by esteemed bodyworker, meditation teacher and mystical powerhouse, Jonathan Foust.
Jonathan is a master at approaching pain and suffering and getting to the root causes and functionality of pain. He's also the husband of one of my favorite people, Tara Brach.
But back to pain...
Or does it?
Well, it does. But it also has a function.
Often that function is to bring us into the present moment, even if the present moment isn't particularly pleasant.
Confronting our pain be it mental, emotional or physical allows us to loosen its grip. This doesn't mean our pain and suffering instantly go away but it does mean we have a choice in how we respond to pain.
Is it easy to use pain as an ally?
Luckily, Jonathan has been working with the body and various types of pain and suffering for decades and has some real insight into how we can approach our own pain, which by extension, allows us to work with the pain of others.
Jonathan is easily one of my favorite guests and I'm already looking forward to our next conversation.
