Getting In Touch With Your Sacred Purpose With Jeff Brown

Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:

Believe it or not, you have a sacred purpose. There’s a reason for you being on earth right now. In fact, we all have a sacred purpose for our lives. In this episode, I brought on Jeff Brown, an author and Enrealment Activist. Jeff and I discuss the idea of spiritual bypassing and how it differs from having a healthy spirituality. He shares his ideas about what a conscious capitalist society would look like and his thoughts on the future of patriarchal constructs. Jeff talks about his book, Grounded Spirituality. He also talks about how to move toward your sacred purpose and how men and women experience spiritual bypassing differently.

About Jeff Brown

A former criminal lawyer and psychotherapist, Jeff Brown is the author of 6 popular books: Soulshaping, Ascending with Both Feet on the Ground, Love It Forward, An Uncommon Bond, Spiritual Graffiti and Grounded Spirituality. He is also the producer and primary journeyer in the award-winning spiritual documentary, Karmageddon, which also stars Ram Dass, Seane Corn, Deva Premal and Miten. After writing a series of inspirations for ABC’S ‘Good Morning America’ in 2010, and appearing on Fox and dozens of radio shows, Brown wrote the viral blog ‘Apologies to the Divine Feminine (from a warrior in transition)’ that autumn, catapulting him to a greater degree of notoriety, particularly in social media. Jeff’s new terms and short writings became a phenomenon some years ago, and continue to be shared by seekers and growers worldwide. In April, 2018, Jeff was invited to Ottawa by Sophie Grégoire Trudeau–gender equality activist and the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau–to film a conversation about emotional healing and inclusivity. She had been sharing Jeff’s words in speeches and social media posts for some time. Excerpts from that powerful dialogue are viewable on Sophie’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Jeff is also the founder of Soulshaping Institute and Enrealment Press.
