In this episode of Align podcast, JP Sears tells us all about his thoughts on gender ideology and feelings of identity. Why is this generation more inclined to express themselves? Is it because the world is a safer place to do so or because we’re indoctrinated to do it? We also start a debate around truth, freedom of speech and the value of censorship. We then go on to discuss the extent to which our actions are a reflection of our childhood learnings and whether we can identify the real heroes and villains in our lives.

We talk about what it actually means to have an autoimmune disease, how they happen and what factors may affect it. We also discuss the definition of pain, how we can regulate it, the evolution of our dietary habits, and how humans thrive with diverse food diets. Everyone has a different version of their ideal diet, and there is no such thing as wrong.

Have you ever questioned your purpose in life?
In this episode of Align podcast, I speak with one of the brightest minds on the planet, Jonathan Pageau. We talk all about the deeper sense of purpose in this life and how to feel more fulfiled, the meaning of religion and why it matters and whether we really need a God.
We also discuss the difference between Christianity and spirituality, all the ways in which we practice self-sacrifice and worship and the dangers of relying on psychedelics. Ultimately, we seek to uncover how much control we actually have in our lives.
Jonathan Pageau is a professional artist, public speaker and writer. He carves Eastern Orthodox icons and designs other traditional images and products. He is also a teacher, with an online course on icon carving and he has written extensively on religious symbolism. His YouTube channel has 160k subscribers and an accompanying podcast called 'The Symbolic World' explores how ancient symbolic patterns underlie our experiences of the world and can re-enchant contemporary life.
