Lola & The Poets – Show Intro

Lola & The Poets Podcast is a virtual alchemical workshop designed for spiritual detectives, exploring personal and collective magical journeys, the ways the mystical & the mundane are intertwined. 

In Episode 1 I’ll be introducing the series as host, talking about the idea of the magical real, the place of the esoteric 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, how it is connected to what the show will be about. (42 mins)

Lola & The Poets - Show Intro

The topics we’ll be discussing in solo shows, and with our guests, cover the realms of philosophies, cosmologies, myths, spiritual practices & storytelling across the globe, the imaginal realm, shamanic cultures, 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.

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.

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.

Downloads are not yet available, but they will be soon. Please follow this blog for notifications, or visit PMaPs YouTube channel, if it is your preferred way to subscribe. I’ll always be uploading the episodes there, too.

Stay tuned, poets.
