The Ethicist & Entheogens

Dr. Sandra Dreisbach joins the conversation. We discuss her work in ethics, entheogens, and healing. 

It was nice connecting to another woman to have a deep discussion about psychedelics and how they can positively impact our lives. Sandra also shares some redirects to Native Indigenous tribes and what we can learn from them about plant medicine. 

Have you ever wondered if psychedelics interfere or interrupt your menstrual cycle? Dr. Dresibach shares some insight as to how and why. 

We tip our hats to the fabulous book Psychedelic Mysteries of the Feminine and share our own experiences with psychedelics.

We Are All God- Satan is God?

In this episode, Jack Coleman joins the conversation. Jack is a Mindset Mentor for Holistic Awareness and Balance. His passion is backed by the desire to help “demystify” philosophies, concepts, and principles we believe are unattainable, unfathomable, and even unrelatable.

We discuss how we are all God, how to find God- in people, places, and things, and also how to receive the truth that makes us feel uncomfortable. Jack breaks down why questions can trigger an emotional and reactive response from us, considering that when we are triggered by questions, it is because we are hiding a lie or protecting a truth.

We also delve into the discussion of psychedelics and how plant medicines can benefit many individuals.

The Drunk Dialogue

Cory and Danielle record a candid conversation about sex. Polyamory, transcendence, objectification, TikTok videos, and even some ideas about how sex can be used as literal therapy, are all discussed. 

 

Skye Silverwind joins the conversation today. 

We discuss how we may be more afraid of ourselves than of others, how we can't beat the system, but we can subvert it. Skye shares what he is learning about erotically embodying himself and how that positively impacts his new relationship with Lauren. We jump all over the place from anarchy to politics, eroticism, sex techniques, and more. 

This is not a child-friendly discussion, so be cautious about listening ears.

Take Journies

Guy Allen joins the conversation. 

Guy and Danielle have been social media friends for some time, starting off with challenges and differences, the friendship almost didn't blossom. 

Today, Guy shares his recent journies, physical and spiritual, as we embark on discussions from Druidism, paganism, traditional witchcraft, box builders, heretics, influencers with fancier labels, how technology is becoming the new god, and what psychedelics have revealed.

Guy shares his story here on episode 84.

Sex, With God

Suzanne DeWitt Hall joins today’s conversation. 

Suzanne is a writer who’s authored many books, three of which we discuss today: Theology of Desire, Sex with God, and Sleeper, Awake

Suzanne shares her story of religious unlearning by way of devotional deconstruction. Her books are delectable snacks for the individual who finds themselves smack in the middle of religious deconstruction and unsure of which questions to ask or why. 

We discuss how encouraging her devotionals are for those who are also going through an erotic transformation, questioning their sexual identity, orientation, and how one relates and reflects the sexual attribute from God. 

We tackle issues surrounding purity culture and the toxic programs, she shares a reimagined depiction of Jesus as "sexy and flirtatious," and we talk about the steamiest scenes in the Bible that highlight the nature of God. 

When asked how one can discern their desires, she advises that we learn to check "ourselves when we're turning someone else into a thing that satisfies us, rather than a person who is worthy of connection, respect, and love." 

A healthy desire is one that brings wholeness, not only to the one who desires but the one who is desired, especially physically, intimately, sexually. 

Suzanne touches on two ideas that are not regularly discussed when considering consent: Sometimes, we say "yes" but we don't really mean "yes." and the privilege of being able to say "no."

Pornstar Pastor

Today, Pornstar Pastor joins the conversation.

PP is not your typical pastor in that he supports sex workers and he encourages ethical porn use. This conversation unfolds so many wonderful and delightful yet deep and controversial topics. We discuss Christian nationalism, comparison of sins, church scandals, Christian sexual ethics, purity prescriptions, a call for patience for progress, minding our extremist blind spots, realizing our theology isn’t that old, why we can be so easily stripped of salvation by dualistic dogma, and why faith has been co-opted. Especially riveting is the way Pornstar Pastor revisions the biblical passage of Jesus before Pontius Pilate while delving into the politics of Jesus. PP’s profound request is necessary: “Let’s not hold salvation over one another’s heads. Let’s not hold faith over one another’s heads.”

Concluding thoughts leave many unanswered questions, join the reflection:

What are the Christian approach to porn, sex work, and Only fans use?

Today, Cory Kingstrom joins the conversation again. After a 6-month absence, Cory and Danielle reunite in front of the microphone. Careful folks, this episode is expressive in nature- we are going to discuss s-e-x. 
Before that, are you the search engine for your children? Freedom of expression, freedom of speech, freedom to not express or not exercise, what happens when it is no longer a socially acceptable norm to protest? Then we discuss Pastor Clark and his recent sermon gaff, purity preaching, social fears about eroticism. We also dip into the waters of Dr. Seuss, Danielle's 24-hour Facebook ban, censorship, creativity, anger and fear cycles, ignorance and social bubbles, and more. 

**Not recommended for children or the highly sensitive.**

 

Today, Landon Padrnos joins the conversation. 
Landon is one of the council members for the city of Olivia, MN. He joins the discussion to share his perspective of implementing the freedom of speech in a small community. He divulges a bit about his own personal political views, entertains ideas about moving forward, and shares his pragmatic optimism for the future of not only Olivia, MN, but the nation. 
Please compassionately consider the perspective of Landon Padrnos.

Today, David Hoffman joins the conversation. 
David has created quite a stirring within the community recently because of a sign he chose to display on his own property. The sign reads "FUCK Biden" and many community members are upset because of the profane nature of the position. While many people support the freedom of speech, others insist that comes with the responsibility of decency and civility. How do we define "decency" and "civility" is a question I aim to answer in the conclusion of this series. Today, David shares his story about what he believes in, why he chose to display the flag and how we can be a more inclusive community. 

Please compassionately consider the perspective of David Hoffman. 

 

In this episode, Thomas Kalahar joins the conversation. 
We continue on the GTKYN series with City Council Member Tom Kalahar. We discuss the sign dispute of Olivia, MN, the Freedom of Speech, individual rights, collective values, community action, the role of government, attention-seeking and how to go about it, the collective imperative, why community action is so important, steps to build bridges in small communities, and why communication is so important, now more than ever. 
Please compassionately consider the perspective of Thomas Kalahar. 

 

Today, Dan Coughlin joins the conversation. 
Dan is the City Administrator for the city of Olivia, MN. In this episode, Dan shares his story of what drew him to community government, what captivated him to move to Olivia, MN, and what his stance is on Freedom of Speech. 

We dive into a discussion of controversy within the community of Olivia—a sign with a 4-letter-word that is creating quite a commotion. Is it political? Is it personal? Is it necessary?
When you have the right to do something, is there something greater than exercising that right?

What does the Freedom of Speech protect you from?
How should communities operate and address controversial issues that hover around Constitutionally protected rights. Must we proclaim what we believe or is it enough to know within?

Please consider the perspective of Dan Coughlin. Enjoy the episode. 

Be sure to subscribe if you enjoy the podcast, and share it on social media with your friends. 

This is very near and dear to my heart because it focuses on the controversy within the community I live in and reveals steps on how to reconcile differences. My hope is that this series will encourage us to be more open-minded about getting to know the neighbors we are called to love. The story focuses on a controversial yet Constitutionally protected matter, freedom of speech. It’s not every day that the national headline stories are taking place in your own back yard. Much of what is discussed echoes collective fears about the erosion of rights.

If you are interested in joining the discussion, please contact me directly so that we can set up a date to record. It's very important that all perspectives are considered compassionately. I hope to bring you as many views as possible surrounding this topic.
*
Change can only come by way of conversation. If we want to see change, locally or nationally, we must be willing to share space and speak to others, as humans, not as socially situated identities.

In this first part of the series, we will start off with the Olivia City Council Meeting Minutes from January 18th, 2021. It begins at the 1 hour 21-minute mark of the meeting. This is Item H. on the Agenda and it pertains to an upcoming guest’s yard sign. I want you to listen to this section of the meeting with an open mind. There were so many things that stood out to me that I will opine on later in the series, but for now, I want you, the listeners, to have the same information and hear the same exchanges that I did when I first started investigating this story. It’s about 23 minutes long. Afterward, I will offer my initial thoughts- things that stood out to me that I took notes on and had questions about.

From there, we will embark on a series of interviews that I conducted with city council members, city officials, the sign owner, and others who wanted to speak to the controversy creating a conflict within our community. If you want to be a part of the conversation, please email me at Danielle.kingstrom@live .com, or find me on social media: Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, also on LinkedIn.

For now, the questions I shall pose will require reflection, and I invite you to reflect on them along with me. I hope to try to answer these questions by the end of the series, but it could be that new ones arise, or none of them are answered at all. If you believe you have an answer, please let me know.

Here are the questions I will leave for you to consider:

What does a civilized society look like? Who decides what is and is not civilized?
If we do not exercise our rights, will we lose them?
If we have the right to do things, does that mean we ought to?
What are shared values and who determines what is valuable?
Can we agree to disagree?

Listeners, as always, I ask you to compassionately consider the perspective of The City of Olivia. Enjoy the episode.

 
Thank you to the Olivia City Council for their hard work and efforts on a truly difficult and challenging matter. 

Today, Matthew Niemi joins the conversation. Matthew is a Ph.D. Candidate for Islamic Studies and reached out to me after hearing the episode Psychedelic Christianity, in which I question whether Islam offers similar doctrines of forgiveness as Christianity. As a listener, he felt compelled to confront the confusion and offered space to be a guest and discuss. (Listeners, I love when this happens!)

He shares what he has learned of Islam, and then we dig into forgiveness, politics, and censorship. He also flexes his Arabic skills. He drops a few verses from Matthew 23, shows how Jesus is regarded within Islam, and parallels the similarities of Christianity and Islam. Allah is a God of mercy, love, and forgiveness, expecting the same of his followers.

Is it a good thing for Islam to be entangled in politics, should it influence political policies and measures, or should it be separate? Matthew articulates that, like Christianity, there is a spectrum of entanglement similar to what we have in the United States.

Then, we dig into social problems and our responsibility as a collective. I share a little bit about my concern for eroticizing politics, how feminism lost its power by seeking all the power, and why I want to keep eroticism separate from politics.

Matthew raises a good point that politics and religion are helpful for us to organize and operate within the society we live in.

We cover a variety of topics. Settle in and get cozy, and compassionately consider the perspective of Matthew Abdulhaqq Niemi. Enjoy the episode.

March to Save America

Scott Tedrick joins the conversation. 
Scott is the editor for the Renville County Register in Olivia, MN. He is a community activist, artist, and organizer. Scott attended the January 6 March to Save America protest in Washington D.C. 

He shares his story and experience of the rally and helps reveal a deeper layer behind the mind of a protest participant. 

We talk more in-depth about what he observed, what other participants shared with him, and why he believes that our right to protest is important. 

We discuss truth, how to heal and connect in smaller communities, and hope for the future of harmony and healing. With a hat tip to Andrew Volstead and the Volstead act, he shares why the Medicine Wheel matters and what we can do to fold the Native story into our history to include everyone.
