When I was a kid, my grandmother told me that I was her ugliest grandchild. She said it to be funny and I laughed to be polite. I was a very chubby kid growing up in an era where beauty was associated with being skinny. The more space you took, the less you were considered worthy. When I was in ...

Back in 2017, Jovanna and I traveled through Asia, filming a spiritual-travel documentary series called “Paths Up The Mountain.” We were interviewing gurus from various meditative traditions, to find out what Enlightenment and Spiritual Awakening actually ARE, what the feel like, and how normal people can experience them.
