Compassionate Inquiry
Dr. Gabor Maté, renowned addiction expert and international speaker, discusses Compassionate Inquiry, a psycho-therapeutic method for facilitating physical, mental and emotional healing.

Die Wise: Manifesto for Soul and Sanity

“To grieve is part of the human experience. That’s the great dare of being human and being conscious- to be willing to love something that’s not going to last; that’s a grief-endorsed understanding of life.”

Author, teacher, activist, ceremonialist, and founder of Orphan Wisdom School, Stephen Jenkinson muses about life, death, grief, the natural world and the condition of being awake. This profound, provocative, and deeply insightful podcast is an invitation to explore the depths of our existential loneliness and be awake to the inter-connectedness of life so that we can live and die wise and our existence contributes to sustaining life for future generations.

Re-thinking Addiction and the War on Drugs
NY Times bestselling author and award-winning journalist, Johann Hari makes a compelling case that we’ve got it all wrong about addiction and the war on drugs. Travelling all over the world in search of answers to the most basic questions about addiction, Hari finds inspiration and hope in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, and the progressive policies of Portugal and Switzerland. This is a fascinating look at the face of addiction and stories of people whose lives have been transformed by the war on drugs.
