It’s a potent week for podcasts! Gordon White and I had our third and perhaps most compelling and exploratory conversation yet on his podcast Rune Soup. We discussed J.R.R. Tolkien’s notion of Faërie, fantasy, and imagination, connecting the principles outlined in his groundbreaking essay “On Fairy-Stories” with his creation myth the Ainulindalë: theory and practice of the sub-creative imagination. In our discussion of my new book, Journey to the Imaginal Realm, we also spoke of how The Lord of the Rings provides a powerful mythos for facing the great challenges in our current era, which are reaching a new peak in 2020. The podcast is available for download or can be listened to directly below.
In preparation for being a lunar guide in the Astrology Hub’s Inner Circle Membership program for this upcoming Sagittarius lunation, I joined Amanda Pua Walsh in conversation on the Astrology Hub’s podcast to discuss the archetypal perspective in astrology, the connections between ecology and an astrological world view, and the significance of some of the upcoming transits in 2020. As always, it is such a pleasure to speak with Amanda, and I deeply enjoyed our rich and evocative conversation. To listen, here is the episode: “The Link Between Archetypal Astrology, Healing Our Ecological Crisis, and Embodying Your Chart.”
