#88 How to Responsibly Navigate a Spiritual “Awakening” with Jenny Kellogg

Anya Kaats Jenny Kellogg

Anya Kaats Jenny Kellogg

Jenny is a certified Astrologer, has a B.A. in Classical Philology, a PhD in Modern languages and has studied ancient civilizations and languages for over 25 years. Jenny returns to MGSW, this time to expand on the topic of spiritual awakenings. Jenny and I chat about our personal journeys, and what we’ve experienced within (and without) various spiritual communities. We address what happens when consumerism and capitalism meet spirituality, and how our individual trauma always plays a role in our spiritual awakening. We also discuss the differences between discernment and skepticism, why having a spiritual container is so imperative to navigating the entire process, and so much more.

#87 Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself: A Solo Episode

Anya Kaats Crestone

Anya Kaats CrestoneI decided to record a short reintroduction to myself and to this podcast. From honoring the space between personal experience and objective “truth”, finding a community that can mirror us and help us grow, and taking responsibility for the stories we tell, I speak a little bit about why I created this project in the first place and where I think it’s going. Thank you, as always, for listening, supporting, and for being here with me on this journey.

#86 Learning to Think for Ourselves and Healing Trauma Holistically with Lindsey Lockett

Lindsey Lockett Anya Kaats podcast

Lindsey Lockett Anya Kaats podcast

Lindsey is a writer and podcaster, helping others to heal trauma holistically and consciously create a reality that isn’t ruled by the past. Lindsey was raised in Evangelical Christianity, and at 35, after watching a pro-gay rights Christian documentary, Lindsey had an identity crisis which lead to a nervous breakdown & suicide attempt. Eventually, she rejected her religious upbringing and restructured her life and values from the ground up. Lindsey and I speak about the danger of toxic, cult-like movements, from religion, to wellness culture and woke politics. We also touch on what it means to take a holistic approach to healing trauma, and how learning to think for ourselves & healing our trauma are two of the strongest antidotes against fundamentalist ideologies of all kinds that prey on fearful, dysregulated humans.
