★ In Episode 1 I’m introducing the series as host, riffing on the idea of the magical real, talking alchemy in psychology, society, culture & the arts, the topics we will be covering on the shows, guests we will have, and a bit about my life & professional background. (42 mins)

Lola & The Poets art material is the vast vault of our planetary heritage of storytelling & healing, the artistic process is one of soul exploration & artistic production is of a personal magical nature, applied in our lives as a tool for being a good human.
The topics we’ll be discussing in solo shows, and with our guests, will cover the realms of philosophies, cosmologies, myths, spiritual practices & storytelling across the globe, the imaginal realm, medicine cultures, shamanism, transcendental states, transpersonal and archetypal psychology, the re-emergence of the Goddess archetype, art psychotherapy, creative exploration of the mystical, use of artistic expression as a therapeutic tool, anthropology of ritual, cinema as modern magic, personal symbolism and temenos – the sacred space, dreams & dream time, shadow work, body language, animal wisdom, plant healing practices, ancestral lineage healing, archetypal patterns in our lives, paranormal & psychedelic experiences, gift of prophecy, astrology, tarot, various forms of divination, precognition & psychic awareness, psychogeography, wanderlust, and the holy pilgrimage. Seeing the world through the eyes of a poet.
I will endeavour to have an episode out every odd Thursday, which means that it will drop when there’s something to say, or a guest to talk to – but the day of the week will always be the same.
