INFO

The topics we will be discussing in solo shows, and with our guests, will be a wide range of philosophies, cosmologies, myths, spiritual practices and storytelling across the globe, medicine cultures, shamanism, transcendental states, the imaginal, transpersonal and archetypal psychology, 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 and dream time, shadow work, body work, animal wisdom, plant healing practices, ancestral lineage healing, archetypal patterns in our lives, paranormal and psychedelic experiences, gift of prophecy, astrology, tarot, various forms of divination, precognition and psychic awareness, psychogeography, wanderlust, and the holy pilgrimage. We will also be touching on the re-emergence of the Goddess archetype, the feminine aspect of the Divine, as a sign of a collective desire for harmonisation between polarities, awakening all our inherent abilities, and deepening our awareness of how environments, thoughts and emotions influence our actions.

The goal is to find enchantment in simple, everyday experiences, follow our hearts and let our minds open to an unusual perspectives, while nourishing a kind of talent for the peculiar, which restores in us the state of childlike awe – and in the process helps clean the daily debris of our mechanical existence.

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.
