An Esoteric Christian and a Former Scientologist

An Esoteric Christian and a Former Scientologist Have a Conversation

I recently had a fun, engaging, meeting-of-the-minds conversation with former Scientologist Chris Shelton for his Sensibly Speaking show. In our conversation we discussed struggling with atheism, deconstruction of faith, inner truth vs. outer truth, speaking in tongues, yoga, and much more. I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation, and I hope you enjoy listening to it.

I am also very thankful to Chris for being willing to have these odd conversations about difficult subjects, and being willing to extend hospitality to those like me who don’t feel comfortable in the atheism community or in religious circles. I hope to see – and have – many more conversations like the one Chris and I had.

You can look forward to Chris Shelton sharing his story on my own podcast this coming August.

Correction: I mischaracterized the author of Meditation on the Tarot as a former member of the occult group The Golden Dawn. As several commenters on the youtube video pointed out, he was not in the Golden Dawn, but instead a member of Rudulf Steiner’s Anthoposophy.
