My Conversation with Glenn Ostlund about Mysticism

I have a chat with Glenn Ostlund about my journey from Mormonism to mysticism, and related mystical metaphysics and spirituality.

This last week I had the opportunity to have a conversation with Glenn Ostlund, host of the Infants on Thrones podcast, about mysticism.

It was a good conversation, the first time I’ve really talked openly about mysticism in a dialogue form, including describing more details of my history and spiritual journey from a very conservative literalist Mormonism, with a deep interest in the LDS temple, to a more progressive and universalist contemplative mysticism.

You can find the podcast at this link, or listen in the player below, or subscribe to the podcast (Apple Podcasts|Android|Google Podcasts|RSS) to listen on your favorite podcast player or app. It is episode #611. I hope you enjoy the conversation, and I look forward to hearing your comments and thoughts.

Thank you, Glenn, for the conversation. I look forward to future chats.


I live in a gift economy, so I give all of my writing freely to you. I depend on your good will and generosity so that my family and I may live, and so that I may continue to write and share insights as we grow together. If you were inspired by this, if it sparked new insight or understanding in you, I invite you to also give, to participate in "the Gift". If every reader gave just $1, it would give life to me and my family. I express my deepest gratitude to you for your Gift!
You may also participate in this community and give in other ways: comment on posts, subscribe to email updates, like the Facebook page, follow my personal Facebook profile, ask to join the community's Facebook group, ask me a question, submit a scripture for me to translate, submit a "First Vision" experience, or contact me to talk about something else, or to offer your gifts in another way. I look forward to getting to know you!
