I'm already breaking the rules in this second episode. I'm supposed to stick to the "30 minute" format (blah blah blah) but I already got bored with that idea. I have 30 minute episodes planned with guests for future shows but for now, it's just you, me, and Dupree.

I figure that you want to know a little bit about me...since I am your host. So, in this episode, I share a story about me and a stranger. I may or may not say the word "erectus." You'll have to listen to find out. 

And then...I describe what this podcast series is about...humanity and the awakening of human consciousness. Consciousness helps us to awaken and expand to our human desires. It makes you open to the totality of receiving. And all that good stuff.

My hope is that my guests inspire you to Awaken, to find balance, and to seek consciousness and creativity in the face of change.
