513. Self intimacy : John Prendergast

Spiritual teacher and author John Prendergast joins Mark to talk resonance, therapy vs meditation, shadow and ethics, spiritual embodiment, relational practice, polarisation, grounding, “tribes”, transformation, science fiction, and of course decadence.

A deep ramble.



John Prendergast, Ph.D., is an author, teacher, retired adjunct professor of psychology, and retired psychotherapist. He studied for many years with the European sage, Jean Klein, as well as with the American spiritual teacher Adyashanti, and has been leading retreats and offering online teachings  in the United States for the past decade. His primary focus is on embodying our deepest  understanding in our ordinary life. He brings a unique blend of nondual understanding, subtle body  sensitivity, and depth psychotherapy to his approach.
