Two Conversations with Orland Bishop: Part 1 (E26) & Part 2 (E27)

Orland Bishop does peace work and mentoring with gang members and others in Watts, Los Angeles. He is also a mystic and philosopher with deep knowledge of African and Western esoteric traditions. In this first of two conversations, we talk about the development of consciousness, inner life and social breakdown, initiation, the death process, and more. In Part Two of this conversation, we discuss the reanimation of materiality, ritual and attention, the nature of the ancestors, and the stage of life we call middle age. And also Orland's extraordinary book, The Seventh Shrine. Listen deeply to Orland -- his words will alter you on many levels.

  1. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No way to say thank you enough!

  2. Wonderful interviews… listening to them all over again.
    Thanks so much for making all of this possible!!!

  3. My soul is touched. Thank you. Sharing your time, insights and transformations
    is essential and important. Thank you.

  4. This has changed my life
    I simply can not listen to this enough. I must have listened to it 50 times since it was posted on the iTunes podcast, as I move through my daily chores, so it may permeate even deeper into my being.
    I wish there were volumes of talks available between Orland and Charles..
    every time I re-rlisten to the talks between these two, I uncover more awarenesses that I hadn’t before..
    Thank you both Orland and Charles.. I passed the book on to my step daughter and even her at 19yrs old, said the 7th shrine in beyond anything she ever read in her life, and she loved it so much that she’s passing it along to her college friends.
    What a gift

  5. I have dreamt of flying castles and skeletons… and dying to remember all I have forgotten. This conversation speaks to me on so many levels my thoughts cannot contain them. Thank you, I am grateful beyond words.

  6. Careful and deep analyses that are rarely discussed by others. It is soothing to know that people like Charles and Orlando know what is happening in our world. Thank you
