Brad Wetzler On the Art and Science of Spiritual Awakenings

Author and journalist Brad Wetzler joins NOL to share his personal inspiration behind writing his upcoming nonfiction book about the art and science of spiritual awakenings. We discuss the interesting phenomenon of Jerusalem Syndrome and the profound effect holy places can have on some people, a few of his stories and experiences with self-proclaimed messiahs in Jerusalem, his research surrounding the connection between faith and mental illness, how the wiring in the brain changes as a result of regular spiritual practice, Brad’s personal shift from neutral journalist to spiritual author, and much more.

About Brad:

Brad is an author and journalist with twenty-plus years working at the highest levels of publishing. He’s written hundreds of articles and essays for top publications including The New York Times Magazine and Book Review, Newsweek, GQ, Wired, National Geographic Adventure, Men’s Journal, George, and Outside, where he remains a contributing editor. His book Real Mosquitoes Don’t Eat Meat (This and Other Inquires About the Oddities of Nature) was published by W.W. Norton’s Countryman Press and answers quirky questions about the natural world.

While working as a freelance writer, Brad traveled across America and around the world, interviewing people from all walks of life, including celebrities, politicians, professional athletes, explorers, spiritual gurus, and anarchists. He’s ridden the campaign bus with presidential candidates, broken bread with cult leaders, played polo with tech billionaires in India and pounded vodka shots with Russian cosmonauts. He’s floated up the Amazon, tailed explorers in Greenland, and surfed with zany fundamentalist Christian surfer missionaries in Indonesia.

Jane Doe On Consanguinamory As An Orientation

As part of NOL’s series coverage on the taboo topic of incest, Jane Doe joins the show to take the conversation a step further.  She explains NON-GSA. This is quite different from Cristina’s experience of incest, when she met her half-brother at age 33. As you learned, GSA couples generally do not grow up together due to adoptions or fostering, and they meet later in life.

Now, Jane explains how her lack of the Westermarck, or the “ew” effect when it comes to your blood relatives, resulted in an 8-year on-again/off-again relationship with her own father, starting at age 19. She debunks the myths associated with consensual, incestuous relationships, explains why the term incest should not be used when referring to consanguinamorous people since it implies abuse or trauma, shares information about how people who lack the Westermarck effect are actually wired differently, why she believes that consanguinamory is an orientation like being gay, how incest fetishists are causing problems for the consang community, why she is one of the leaders of the consang rights movement to begin the fight toward awareness, and ultimately the reversal of laws that currently make incest illegal, and much more.

As with Cristina, Jane’s name and voice have been altered to protect her identity.

Jane has offered additional information about her community and their movement through her website or private consang group.

You can visit her website at https://consanguinamory.wordpress.com or forum Kindred Spirits ks2016.forumactif.fr.  Per Jane, all porn is filtered out and rejected.
