Shawn Nevins Interview – Honesty, Focus, Intuition, and the Natural Koan

This episode is from an interview titled “Satsang with Shawn Nevins” conducted by Reverend Saina Fernandez from the Awakening Together group. It took a few minutes to find our groove, but thanks to the Reverend’s great questions, this interview hit several key topics and moments of inspiration including discussions on honesty, focus, intuition, and the natural Koan.

I appreciated the opportunity to connect with the Awakening Together organization and am continually amazed and thankful to encounter groups of truth seekers helping one another in this most profound of endeavors.
