The Spiritual Bypass Trap
When we are faced with the prospect of dealing with our issues, we tend to look for solutions that address the problem as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, this often leads us to address the symptoms only, rather than dealing with the underlying challenges or wounds or traumas that led to the symptoms in the first place. This is a completely understandable approach—after all, revisiting old wounds can seem frightening, and may even be painful. What to do?
The real problem here is that, when we address symptoms only, we often find ourselves relying on religion or spirituality to heal our wounds—this is the essence of Spiritual Bypass. But such approaches don’t really work, at least in the long run. Sure, they may provide temporary relief, but sooner or later we have to address the core issue—at least if we want to achieve true fulfillment in our lives.
In this episode, David brings his friend and colleague Nadia Kim to the show to discuss this issue in detail. Mark your calendar and make a commitment to yourself to join them!

The Great Perfection
We seem to have a love-hate relationship with perfection: it is one of those things that most of us seem to want, while secretly doubting we’ll ever get it. If the subject of perfection comes up in conversation, it’s not unusual to hear people say things similar to the following:
- “Nobody’s perfect”
- “Perfection is a moving target”
- “Perfection seekers are rarely content”
- “The race for perfection ends with disappointment”
But here’s something to consider: what if Perfection is already here? What if we’ve simply missed it, or defined it incorrectly?
In this episode David and his guest Harry Sherwood are going to dive into this topic and have some fun with it. Join them and find out all about The Great Perfection.
