Episode 16: Sleeping At Last, Grace Requires Nothing of You
I think there are truths which reveal the limitations of human language. And when this happens we have to rely on artists to express these great spiritual insights through an alternative language--like music or film or the visual arts or dance--to say clearly what the rest of us only feel vaguely.
So, when I heard Ryan O’Neal, otherwise known as Sleeping At Last, was writing songs from the perspective of each of the Nine Enneagram types, well as you can imagine, I was pretty intrigued.
And on today’s show, Ryan joins us to talk about this intriguing and wonderful series of new music and shares his song titled, “ONE” from the project, ATLAS: Year Two. You’ll love hearing not only his music but also hearing his heart which I think is, well, evidently magnificent.
Sleeping At Last is the moniker of Chicago-based singer-songwriter, producer and composer, Ryan O’Neal. In 2013, Sleeping At Last began the long-form concept project, Atlas, which is an ongoing series of new music (EPs, Singles, etc) to be released over the course of several years. Atlas: Year One (30 songs) was completed in early 2014. Sleeping At Last is currently working on Atlas: Year Two which can be found at www.sleepingatlast.com.
