Brin-Jonathan Butler discusses his journey from his hometown in Vancouver to Cuba in his early twenties to train with Olympic boxers, write their stories, and film a documentary called Split Decision. In today's episode we discuss: finding community, pilgrimage, identity, obsession, and more. We also talk about Brin's new article, Giving Up The Ghost, which will be published in Hazlitt Magazine in February.

Lynne Forrest teaches that people perceive life in one of two ways--we’re either reacting out of the victim mind or we see life through the eyes of the observer mind, which witnesses without judgment. Lynne is devoted to helping people find and clear the painful beliefs and ideas that have caused them distress through a process of accessing the Observer Self.
"As soon as we recognize we’re on the lower (victim consciousness) triangle, we take ownership of it. As soon as we take ownership of it, we’re automatically moved up to the observer. Now, we begin to ask ourselves the question. What can I learn from this. How can I grow from this?" -Lynne Forrest
