Episode 16 – Kelly Carlin

My guest today is the delightful, funny and incredibly engaging, Kelly Carlin.

Kelly is the daughter of George Carlin (legendary comedian and counter-culture figure) and she’s also pretty freaking rad. In addition to having just finished her autobiography, “A Carlin Home Companion,” Kelly has a degree in Jungian Depth Psychology. But those are just roles right?

On top of all that (or maybe underneath it all) Kelly is one of the nicest and smartest people I’ve had the pleasure to speak with. Her thoughts on modern culture, being a spiritual seeker, balancing the dark and the light, investigating the shadow and bringing much needed equanimity to an anything but modern world are just a few examples of what Kelly’s about.

Things Kelly and I discuss in this episode:

  • The Shadow
  • Carl Jung
  • Joseph Campbell
  • Twitter
  • Spiritual Awakenings
  • The value of intuition
  • Horizontal connections vs Vertical connections
  • Meditation

NOTE: There is no Soundcloud version of this episode as I’ve ditched it. If you absolutely need to have a Soundcloud version, send me an email at nlampert [at] mindpodnetwork [dot] com and I’ll get you sorted.
