0030 - Self awareness & spirituality, and their relationship to self improvement in the modern world

The Unlearning Playground

Mar 30 2023 • 17 mins

In this episode of The Unlearning Playground podcast, we sit together for a good & powerful meditation on the topic of spirituality.

I talk about what I find to be the heart of spirituality, what a modern human must unlearn about spirituality, how spirituality actually enhances a person's self awareness & what is the relation all of this holds to that topic which attracts almost of us (at least the sane ones) - self improvement.

This is a slightly more poetic episode than the usual episodes I have been recording and sharing lately, and as we find out in the video - that has got more to do with the colour of the t-shirt I'm wearing in it!

Let's dig right in.
I'll see you in the playground.
Until next time.
Peace out.
