Aging, Dying and Living in the Anthropocene - TruthLover #23 with Joan Tollifson

November 29, 2019

Joining us today is Joan Tollifson, she is a writer and devotee of life. Her latest book, Death: The End of Self-Improvement, celebrates the great stripping process of aging, dying, living, and spiritual awakening. Joan sees awakening as never-ending and always only Now. She has roots in both Buddhism and Advaita, but belongs to no particular tradition.

Joan is all for genuine transformation, and distinguishes in her new book between that and an oppressive obsession with self-improvement rooted in stories of deficiency and lack. Joan celebrates imperfection and brokenness as blessings. She recently survived anal cancer, which she describes as an awakening journey. Joan is the author of four previous books: Bare-Bones Meditation, Awake in the Heartland, Painting the Sidewalk with Water, and Nothing to Grasp. She lives in Oregon, USA.

In today's episode we have Austin Hill Shaw joining us, he is a healer working in the medium of architecture.

As a creativity expert and author of The Shoreline of Wonder: On Being Creative, his mission in life is to empower others as creators.

And as a designer, and the founder of 3 Lights Design in Oakland, California, as well as the creator of the Core Needs Design Method and The Joyful Home Remodel, his intent is to reform architecture as it practiced today from a transactional, material-based, consumer pursuit to one that is transformative, to one that honors and celebrates the intelligence and generosity of the natural world, and to one that is deeply collaborative, co-creative, and fulfilling for everyone involved.
