In this episode, Laura and Bernhard discuss the relationship that they each have to the Divine/God/Source. They reflect on aspects of the Divine and the deeper surrender to Divine that we all will eventually come across when doing spiritual work. They discuss the religious distortions of seeing God as outside of us, the New Age Ascension movement, how to anchor the Divine in daily life, divine grace,  soul purpose, the importance of establishing the inner witness, outline steps of holistic inner work and meditation practices, and much more.
