Feb 28, 2017

This week we welcome back one of our most popular guests, Dr Jeff Kripal.

Dr Kripal last joined us to talk about his book, The Super Natural. Today we are speaking on the value of comparison, the role of the supernatural in culture, the rise of Esalen and the perennial need for art and creativity.

A fantastic chat.

This week, we welcome Dr Ian Evans, architectural historian, author and conservationist. Dr Evans’ 2010 thesis, ‘Touching Magic’, was the first ever academic examination of the historic use of witches marks, bottles and other apotropaic magic in Australia.

It's an absolutely fantastic chat. There are photos from Dr Evans' research available at runesoup.com, along with his entire thesis, some additional reporting on the topic and a video on the Tasmanian Magic Project.

This week we speak to writer and metaphysician, Benebell Wen. Benebell is the author of Holistic Tarot and The Tao of Craft.

It's a great chat, covering the history of Taoism and Taoist magic, differences in western and eastern sigil construction, Chinese diaspora lifeways, families hauntings and -inevitably- a little tarot too.

Enjoy.
