Our collective podcast audible journey collides head on with the dharmic brilliance of Christine Mason. She is a force of nature who dances her away through the multi-verse with ease, grace, wisdom and a whole lot of creation. Our conversation traversed many landscapes including technology, running companies and business, spiritual practice, refining ones dharma, how to create more compassionate working environments and a look at the state of yoga in the west. YES, we really did cover that much ground. Additionally, Christine shared with us her experience of how she re-adapted her lifes work based on a psychedelic spiritual experience that changed her life instantly.
Christine’s state of being in the world is truly remarkable and being with her can hover between inspiration and intimidation. She’s extremely accomplished and constantly flowing with new ideas and energy. In my opinion, Christine is the model for the 21st Century woman. Enjoy the episode!

“There’s nowhere to get to, there’s nothing to do, there’s just your participation in life.”
You’re sure this is true? Is there a right way to participate?

I loved hearing about Christine’s life and perspectives; she was funny, warm, informative, poised, and super down to earth while talking about huge philosophical and cultural concepts. Wonderful episode!
