The Pat Flynn Show

Oct 14, 2020

Many people think asceticism is an outdated or exclusively religious practice. Dr. Brian Besong disagrees. Properly understood, ascetic practices form us in good habits, enculturate virtue, and make doing hard things easy (or at least easier). Join us for a fascinating discussion on the history of ascetic thought, and learn how ascetic practices -- from not scratching itches to taking cold showers, and more -- can help us to live a freer, better life in our contemporary culture.
