110: Finding our Home

In this episode, the wonderful mentor, coach, and educator, Melanee Evans, joins LDF host Dan Wotherspoon for a deep dive into our spiritual core (our “home”), the creative nature of thought, “living from inside-out,” and other profound concepts and their connections to our real, lived-lives, and especially how they offer us a way to finding true joy and peace.

The conversation begins with Melanee sharing about her unique upbringing and life since that ultimately led her to find and study the ideas she shares here. All along, Dan shares his excitement for these concepts and the many new ways to expound on the key idea at the foundation of most contemplative, eastern, and many other traditions–and here at Latter-day Faith. And for fans of Elder Marlin Jensen, you’ll get to know him a bit better as Melanee shares about the very important role he has played in her life.

You won’t want to miss this conversation. It’s a long one and can be listened to in chunks, but most likely you will be sucked right in and find yourself listening to all of it in one sitting!

Quotations from this episode:

G. K. Chesterson:
Your religion is not the church you belong to, but the cosmos you live inside of. Once we know that the entire physical world all around us, all of creation, is both the hiding place and the revelation place for God, this world becomes home, safe, enchanted, offering grace to any who look deeply. I call that kind of deep and calm seeing, “contemplation.” 

Maria von Franz:
“It’s easy to be a naive idealist.
It’s easy to be a cynical realist.
It’s quite another thing to have no illusions
and still hold the inner flame.”
