Lola & The Poets podcast is a virtual alchemical workshop exploring personal and collective magical journeys, the ways the mystical & the mundane are intertwined. Psychology, culture, art, alchemy. Solo shows & interviews. Out every odd Thursday. Hosted by Milana Vujkov.
★ In Episode 4 we’re revisiting our recent yet distant past for a chat recorded end of February this year, with the lovely artist & storyteller, and my dear friend Divyam Chaya Bernstein, from London, UK. We talk about childhood philosophies, mystical Ireland, origins and practices of storytelling, magical atmosphere & the potency of enhanced reality, inner critics & inner worlds, trusting your own creative powers, importance of vibes & tribes, art as ornament vs. art as essence, virtual reality vs. imaginal space, poetry as soul solution, art journaling as therapy, nourishing art communities, zen annihilations, the value of what we choose to lose, lived experience & grounding, creative inquiry, personal myths, soft spaces for hard truths, archetypal phases of a woman’s journey, downloading the imaginal in nature & all manner of portals. Join us for a wise, joyful ride. (87 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.
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.
