In Production: Mike Deschenes

Lotus blossom by Taifighta from next episode will feature a conversation with Mike Deschenes, a member of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Milford, New Hampshire.

Following a path we've heard before, Mike left the religion of his upbringing (Catholicism) when he found that his questioning wasn't encouraged and that he was expected to accept by faith. His sister introduced him to Unitarian Universalism, and his questions led him to study philosophy in college, with an intense and continuing exploration of most every religion.

Still exploring, Mike's spirituality today is largely inspired and informed by nature, Buddhism, other eastern philosophy, and Native American spirituality. All fit under the UU umbrella.

I had hoped to post Mike's interview this weekend, but I was out of town most of last week and didn't have access or time to do any audio production. Watch for the interview by next weekend.

More interviews are recorded and scheduled, and my aim is to produce two programs each month.

I am encouraged by the increasing number of downloads and welcome your feedback. Special thanks to those who have sent e-mail or spoken with me. Please consider leaving comments about the individual conversations on this blog, which is a way to share your own explorations and expand the conversation. If you have ideas for guests or topics, you may leave them as comments or send them by e-mail to comments at bespiritual dot info. Note that we are — not
