Steve welcomes author and one of the world’s leading authorities on the mystical and esoteric teachings of Western civilization, Richard Smoley, for a captivating conversation about his new book, "Dice Game of Shiva". In the book, Richard examines the roles God has played for us and reconciles them with what we today know through science and reason. In the process, the engagingly down-to-earth Smoley shows that consciousness is the underlying reality beneath everything in the universe. In one of Hinduism’s great myths, Shiva plays a dice game with his consort, Parvati, and loses consistently. If he is the greatest god, why does he lose? Through this story, Smoley explores the interplay between consciousness, represented by Shiva, and experience, exemplified by Parvati. He draws on numerous disciplines to offer an illuminating exploration of mind and matter and a provocative understanding of consciousness, the self, and the world.
