The Freedom Place Podcast: Interviews on esoteric spirituality, Gnosis, Dzogchen, Vjarayana, Alchemy and more with the adept t.k.

Welcome to the The Freedom Place podcast! This is a platform for distributing interviews with and teachings of Traktung Khepa.

Spiritual adept, visionary, poet, farmer, Traktung Khepa is an American-born sage who has taught students in America, Europe, and Cuba since 1990. For 30 years he has guided Tsogyelgar, a contemplative community outside Ann Arbor, Michigan. Equally able to explore the most esoteric aspects and methods of the Tantric path or discuss Existentialism, Santeria, Alchemy, Political Philosophy, or Art History, t.k.’s style of teaching is immediate and relevant.

t.k’s lifelong passion for exploring spiritual traditions and life’s meaning has seamlessly melded with his profound realization accomplished through the non-monastic Tantric path. The Adept Thinley Norbu Rinpoche repeatedly encouraged him to share his wisdom and realization to, “Help Westerners clarify the inner meanings of Tantra without distortions.”

Welcome to the eleventh episode of The Freedom Place podcast featuring interviews with American-born sage, Traktung Khepa. For more information about t.k. and his work, visit https://www.TraktungKhepa.com.

In this interview, t.k. discusses Socrates' ancient aphorism, "Know Thyself." He describes the way in which delusion arises as a process structure and how this process structure, mistakenly perceived as an individual (a subjective self in a world of objects) engages in unconscious lying in order to armor and protect itself. This self-lying is the pivot point for one who is on a spiritual path as the place where one can engage in the work of knowing thyself.

The intro music is "Devotion" by David Modica and the outro music is "Land of Unmaking" by Just a Tourist from their album, Narrow Canyons.
