1. Combat Zones to Spirituality with John Lawyer Boom With A Bang! 41:48

From desert combat zones to a battle within, John Lawyer transformed from soldier to spiritual seeker. John’s military service took him to Afghanistan, Kuwait and Iraq. 

John is candid about living in war zones with his wife, his culture shock in returning to civilian life, and the VA therapist who may have saved his life.

He explains:

  • What is dharma, why is it important?
  • How do we navigate the spiritual path in the modern age?
  • What is being open to the universe about?
  • What is the Stream of Unconsciousness?
  • What’s the difference between Spirituality, Art, Science, Philosophy, Religion and Self-Help?

And finally: finding Joy, at any age.

I’ve probably done most of the things you expect a woman my age to have done: married and divorced; three children; variety of jobs over the years including a couple of home-based businesses and, finally, a pretty good career; gave up that career (and home and life) to move and take care of a dementing mother; adult daughter moved back home with a baby; financial struggles; sucker-punched by the post-2007 economy. You tell a similar story.

My podcast is for Boomer Women. A variety of subjects, a variety of viewpoints... and open to suggestions if I'm not covering a topic you want to hear about.
