Show 32 – Blue River of Forever


In this show Jeff, Nikiah and John-Luke

Reflect on the notions around Traditional spirit practice as it might relate to the Sagh’ic Tradition and the working with traditional spirituality in a modern world.

How do we balance and should we, ancient practice and theory in a constantly changing world?

Does spiritual practice need to adapt to modern society, or should it remain an anchor for a wayward vessel?


Jeff sings, “Forever you are here”, which is a Sagh’ic tradition song of the constancy of spirit regardless of the diverse paths of the human.
