Be Where How? Show

By Be Where How?
Have you wanted to learn more about philosophy and spirituality but felt intimidated by Ancient Greek or Sanskrit? Is it too embarrassing to admit that we are more than the body? Are you afraid to bring up reincarnation over coffee?

Well we love coffee. And Plato, Buddhism and Sri Ramana Maharshi. And we think these teachers and systems have some use today.

This is the Be Where How? Show: mystic philosophy made practical.

I’m Bob, speaking weekly with Scott and Ryan. We’re conscious creatives, and formerly closeted mystics, trying to unpack the inaccessible.

009: Autobiography of a Yogi
Diving into Paramahansa Yogananda’s spiritual masterpiece, “Autobiography of a Yogi”: we echo his points on spiritual vessel-hood as a deliberate progression, and that contemplative practices are for all, not just sadhus in Himalayan caves. It’s a book that touched Steve Jobs, George Harrison, and basically every spiritual person of the last seventy years, including the three of us. This year is the centennial of Yogananda’s arrival in America (1920), and so as Americans entranced by Eastern philosophy and his life’s work, we are completely indebted.

008: Buddhism 101
We cover a fairly comprehensive introduction to Buddhism — from who the Buddha was, how his psychological system plays so well in modern times, more on Zen, and a few basic FAQs on meditation.

007: Spirituality in Social Action & Allyship
The current racial and cultural climate in America is extremely inspiring, and the Be Where How? collective stands in solidarity with black liberation and equality for all communities of color in America. As three white men, we talk about how other white folks can best understand allyship and social action through a spiritual lens: namely through listening, amplification, and conscious evolution.

006: Death: Dust, Hell, or Reincarnation?
In the "Death" episode, we talk about what we want done with our bodies—tree body urns are the clear winner—as well as reflecting on those we've lost, near-death experiences, and how world cultures deal with death. Do we just become dust, is it heaven vs. hell, or what about reincarnation?   Sponsored by O'Hoolahan's Tree Urns (ohoolahans.com) Be Where How? is Bob Peck and pals: Scott Standley & Ryan Padgett bewherehow.com/podcast Music by Sleep Good open.spotify.com/artist/5Fon6tb20oHkqBcePzyJy3 Coffee is happiness ko-fi.com/bewherehow

005: Defining Nondual
The last of the three definitions episodes: “nondual” is all about One Only, not two. From Advaita Vedanta to A Course in Miracles to glimmers in other systems, we untangle the headiness of the illusion and how to live in it, despite its unreality.

004: Unpacking Christianity
It was the Monday after Easter and we wanted to talk about Jesus—what we liked about our Christian upbringings, and why we’re no longer churchgoers. Includes an intro to Bible scholarship, love for Bart Ehrman and the Gnostics.

003: Defining Metaphysical
Part 2 of the definitions episodes: the “metaphysical” material is focused on concepts, teachers, and systems of thought beyond the physical. We reference Mark Gober’s book "An End to Upside Down Thinking" constantly, and promise we’re not crazy. Yogananda, Hermeticism and astrology get some shoutouts.

002: The Creative Process
We’re three creatives in distinct yet overlapping disciplines, so we talk about our latest projects (including bit.ly/solidarityfilm), philosophies around creativity, and how to make things.

001: Defining Mindful
This project works with three categories of content: mindful, metaphysical, and nondual — all of which have value in their own way. The “mindful” material is based on secular mind-training practices and systems derived from Buddhism and Ancient Greek thought, particularly Zen and Stoicism. Modern teachers are Jon Kabat-Zinn, Sharon Salzberg, and of course the legendary Thich Nhat Hanh.
