Welcome

All narrative is a lie. The truth can only be heard in the pauses between words. In stillness. When we recognise our own breath.

~ ANIMA MUNDI ~

Welcome to Poets, Mavericks & Prophets, a manufacturer of philosophical mischief, psychological acrobatics, alchemical art projects & esoteric master plans. PMaPs regular offerings are soulful nuggets, ephemeral impressions picked up in moments when the self & the Anima mundi aligned –  gathered as micro blog posts, scribbled & shared throughout the years as I went about the business of being a human. A psychological diary and a spirit to-do list, in one.

If you fancy surfing poetry, digging into phantasmagorical stories, exploring alchemical psychology, choosing your film food wisely, enchanting your time with virtual doodles, or jingling a podcast on the mystical & the mundane while you’re on the road, it’s all here, in the Menu, or linked somewhere – give it a look and a whirl. For anyone searching for a creative boost, in situ, PMaPs is launching creative workshops, coming soon to a reality near you.

With hope that you find what you are looking for, on this site – and in life. Sweet travels.
