I've decided to set Dead Man's Forest down for a while to focus on some business goals I set for myself. Give a listen for more details, and for some parting thoughts. I'll still be around, so you are more than welcome to contact me at https://www.deadmansforest.org/ Mentions Daily LSAT Problems: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCleL7JjTogC_dFq ...…
 
I hope that you're having a meaningful week.
 
The conclusion of my conversation with Colleen (and of the interwoven conversations with Colleen and Tbird). She shares how she learned to listen to her inner "yes" and "no," and how living her life aligned with "yes" has allowed her to feel alive in each moment. Of course, if you have any questions for Colleen, or Tbird, feel free to reach out ...…
 
Tbird and I finish our conversation. He wraps up his story on re-gathering the parts of himself he left behind as a child and in his 20s, and how his worldview has changed because of those experiences. He finishes with some powerful thoughts on living with--and sharing--grief. Mentions Shambhala Meditation: In many Hindu and Buddhist traditions ...…
 
T-bird is an incredibly passionate and caring man who has some remarkable experiences to share with you--and reflections on the lessons he's learned from those experiences. This week's episode is a bit of an interruption of my conversation with Colleen. This is an experiment; I wanted to introduce T-bird and his story so that I can make some co ...…
 
My good friend Colleen shares some of her experiences in facing the choice that she had between the life she was "supposed" to live based on how she was raised and a life that aligned more closely with her inner spirit. Mentions: Steven Levine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Levine_(author) Naropa University: https://www.naropa.edu/ Tran ...…
 
The things we learn over the course of our lives are largely determined by where and when we were born. Given the huge amount of potential knowledge, and the tiny slice of it any one of us happens to possess, it seems the things any one of us believes we know are more likely to be untrue than true. I think all our worldviews are probably false ...…
 
What can people do when there's a conflict between what you believe you should do and what someone else believes you should do? And when, from each person's perspective, they're right?
 
I hope you have enjoyed the past couple episodes' conversation with Joyce. Today we wrap it up with a few personal examples. I think we all have something to learn from people who live with authenticity, such as Joyce. No mentions that need links.
 
Joyce talks about her love for spring, and about how mindfulness of our mortality can help us be more present and more authentic. Mentions: Death Cafes
 
This is the first part of my conversation with Joyce, who has some wisdom to share about why connection--to all things--is important, and how the disconnection our Western civilization teaches us is harming so many things. Some mentions: Grandmother's Counsel the World, a book Joyce is reading. MK Nature Center, a branch of Idaho Fish & Game th ...…
 
I recently changed some of my ideas about science based on reading an important book called "The Beginning of Infinity," by David Deutsch. (Well worth the read, by the way.) I had what I now think are some misconceptions. I attempt to describe them in this episode. I also connect my new concepts to the idea I shared in a recent episode: that of ...…
 
Jared Jacobs, perhaps better known on the internet as Gold Yeller, makes stop-motion videos of sports highlights using Lego. Take a few minutes to listen to him talk about some of the lessons he's learned from his work and life. If you want to see more of Gold Yeller's work, you can check him out on: Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5 ...…
 
I couldn't record a full episode this week, but I've still been working on some thoughts. This episode will keep you abreast of two of them: first, that in the vision of the Dead Man's Forest that we are both the person AND the dead landscape--that we feed one another and are fed in turn; second, that our perceptual awareness relationship with ...…
 
The conclusion of my conversation with Emily Marvosh, where she talks about what classical music is and what continues to interest and excite her about it. You can read about and hear Emily's work on her website, http://www.emilymarvosh.com/
 
This week I speak with Emily Marvosh about her experiences and what she's learned from them. She shares several lessons that have been important to her throughout her education and career as a classically-trained singer. You can learn more about Emily on her website, http://www.emilymarvosh.com/
 
I suspect that love and its fruit--life--are the core goals of all religions. I find it sad that in religion we often lose sight of that, instead making our faith more about being right than being loving.
 
From the perspective of your relationship to the universe and to civilization, and from the universe's perspective of its relationship to life--including human life--it seems possible that love could be the thing that makes all this go. Let's discuss.
 
Last week we talked about how Michael sometimes gets emotional about his death as the ultimate goodbye. This week brings some ideas about how we can live in response to the fact that someday we will die.
 
An emotional episode today, recorded on a walk over very crunchy snow--an experiment that turned out a little noisier than I hoped it would. But, I'll get better at it. I hope you get something out of it.
 
In this episode, I wrote a short fable to illustrate the lesson I wanted to share. I hope, should you choose to incorporate the lesson into your life, that my story helps you remember it.
 
After getting up to the mountain today I found myself unable to collect my thoughts due to some external circumstances. Rather than fumble my way through a full episode in which I wouldn't be able to be fully present, I decided to keep it short and simple.
 
Patrick and wrap up our conversation with ideas about fear, binary thinking, and a couple sports analogies.
 
Patrick and I continue our discussion. This week we cover dogma and guiding principles, fear and selfishness, iteration and innovation, and being true to the person you want to be.
 
My friend Patrick and I discuss language, ideological lenses and unconscious bias, and a couple of his experiences with these things.More from Patrick in coming weeks.
 
Coming out of his conversations with Jason and sharing the Thanksgiving holiday with his family, Michael reflects on some important ideas about a couple of the modes of moving through the world available to us, that we might not always examine so closely because they are so ingrained in our cultural norms: true gratitude (and how it relates to ...…
 
My conversation with Jason took an unexpected turn in its second half. The conversation turns from worlds and worldviews to religion. Give the episode a listen to find out what he asked me and how I responded.If you have any thoughts about this episode, or would like to ask Jason a question or read his thesis, please reach out to me at deadmans ...…
 
Jason Young, author of Maturation and Transformation Through Vision Fasting (an abbreviated title for this description), shares with us what he's learned about how worldviews shape worlds, and how we can use that knowledge to, each in our own small ways, restore our relationship to the world--both as individuals, as a culture, and perhaps even ...…
 
It's been a few weeks since I've visited the mountain to record, so today I made time to drive up there and reflect on the last few episodes. I weave the threads of conversation from DMFs 19-22 together, reflecting on how these conversations have fed me over the last month. I wonder if as we grow up we don't change as much as we expand to encom ...…
 
The conclusion of my conversation with Nancy Buffington. Thank you, Nancy, for sharing your story with us!If you would like to keep up with what Nancy is doing, check out her website, https://www.nancybuffington.net/, her band's website, https://www.thesoulmatesboise.com/, or Boise's annual TEDx conference at http://tedxboise.org/…
 
Nancy Buffington is a wonderful and generous woman who I am privileged to know. She spoke with me about her experiences as a introverted girl and the effect they had on her life as a woman and an academic. She has put in a tremendous amount of work over the past dozen years to re-orient her personal and professional life around what is importan ...…
 
This week Michael talks to Stephen Warley, a wonderful human being and the man behind the podcast, website, and coaching business he calls Life Skills That Matter. Stephen talks about how he has spent many years aligning himself with himself, making his behaviors fit the person he would like to be. You can hear in his story how hard he has work ...…
 
Ruminations on the beauty of fall colors, their relationship to transience and mortality, and on how letting go is part of living fully.
 
After a few weeks off (car troubles, and recording and editing my first guest conversation), Michael returns with some more thoughts from the Dead Man's Forest about the different paths we all take to truth, and how the characters we play in the stories we tell ourselves are who we become.
 
A conversation with John Poelstra of johnpoelstra.com
 
Struggles in conflict situations, the complexity of multiple perspectives, and the stories we tell ourselves about the things that happen to us.
 
Back after a short hiatus, Michael reiterates the story behind Dead Man's Forest and shares some thoughts on belonging.

Vision and emotions could be similar: it feels like they are experiences that are derived from our environment, but several scientific subjects and experiments suggest they are not. Rather, they seem to be experiences that are entirely constructed in our minds.This idea is both interesting and disturbing to me.If this is true, does it suggest t ...…
 
The world we live in limits what we can think. Is enlightenment just contentment and the absence of self-sabotage? And is it something we have access to?We will all die; we have been given a death. Even the forest changes.
 
Followup thoughts on the creation and destruction that are in us (and all things), and how these two things tend to stay in balance. How does memory work? What is the past? Is it connected to imagination? And what, if anything, does that have to say about reality in the present moment?...and does it even matter?It seems so. The world we live in ...…
 
We are beings who wield both creation and destruction, and both of these are a part of all existence. We know practically nothing. But if we wish to become wise, we must work towards that goal, knowing that perhaps it is an impossible one. And we learn that the choice to do so is meaningful, and gives our life direction and purpose. As do all c ...…
 
Thoughts on our vulnerability as mortal beings. Considering how a deconstructive mindset (which we use to understand the inner workings of things)--which can be very useful--nevertheless has diminishing returns and cannot help us with meaning and purpose. But if we can use it to help us appreciate the things we have in our lives, it can help us ...…
 
Followup from episode 3 on how the goal is not the point, on why to practice perspective-taking, and the importance of honest conversation. New topics on how science's attempt at objectivity (on obtaining a "universal" perspective, so to speak) can potentially devalue your individual perspective, and cannot yet explain the ineffable experience ...…
 
Reflecting on existence and nonexistence (both our own and that of other things), how such reflection could make the world a better place; the value of truth (whether or not it's real), and a perspective on different perspectives.
 
Is truth real? Or is it something humans invented? DMF 2 wrestles with this question and its implications, and what we can do to use our fear of meaninglessness to better ourselves and our lives.
