Ancient Solutions : Cultural Disconnection and Te Ao Māori

When editing this episode, we felt the content was so important and compelling that it needed to be given room to breathe. For this reason we've split this episode into two parts. 

In part one , Scottie & Spanky meet with Jay Ruka (author of Huia Come Home) to talk about cultural disconnection and Jay's homecoming to his Māori identity as a Christian and a New Zealander.

Scottie and Spanky begin their road trip in Wellington talking to Rev. Jean Malcolm about what Contemplative Spirituality might offer to the many of us suffering with Anxiety and mental health trauma. 

Two resources are mentioned in this podcast:

Firstly, this guided  "Centering Prayer" takes about 20 minutes, but is a great way to start out in Contemplative Spirituality: https://theliturgists.bandcamp.com/track/centering-prayer-ii-feat-mike-mchargue.

Below is an attached called 'Five Approaches to Contemplative Prayer' which suggests some ancient traditions you may want to try out at home.
