We reconnected with our friend Kevin Sweeney to chat about his new book, The Making of a Mystic: My Journey With Mushrooms, My Life as a Pastor, and Why It’s Okay for Everyone to Relax.
We talked about psychedelics, closing his church, learning to love and lead in the way of contemplation and mysticism. Kevin shares his journey of acceptance and letting go as a pastor, and all the ways God is at work in our reality.
Kevin Sweeney was co-founder and lead pastor of Imagine Church—an urban church in Honolulu. He is the host of podcast The Church Needs Therapy, and he lives In Honolulu with his wife and co-founder of Imagine, Christine, and their two kids, True and Mikayla.
You can connect with Kevin on Instagram.
