EA Ep.40 - Breaking down your belief system and building up a new one

In this episode, I struggled to introduce my guest...the best I came up with when I sat with Joey Lundgreen is that he does 'life parkour'. Born into Mormonism and even spending a couple of years doing missionary work in Russia, he left the church after realizing he didn't believe in any of its core dogmas. What ensued was a long list of life-enriching and diverse experiences such as traveling in India, hanging out with homeless people in Colorado, trying psychedelics, and even running a cannabis-friendly-yoga practice. In this intimate and refreshing conversation, Joey opens up about growing up in the Mormon church, the difficult process of leaving, his adventures sleeping under a bridge and befriending homeless people, and his fascination with the book A Course in Miracles by Helen Schucman, sharing some of the wisdom contained in it.
