This week we speak to anthropologist, writer, teacher and Maya shaman-priestess, Gabriela Jurosz-Landa.
Gabriela is the author of Transcendent Wisdom of the Maya and she joins us today to talk about Maya cosmology, ceremony and understanding of time.
This week, we welcome back to the show one of my favourite guests from last year, Dr Diana Walsh Pasulka.
Diana is chair of the Philosophy and Religion Department at the University of North Carolina Wilmington and joins us today to discuss her recent book, American Cosmic.
We explore interacting with off-planet intelligences and what such practices might actually do to you; as well as meaning and synchronicity; and how contact events become religious over time.
This week, we welcome back to the show Dr Jeffrey Kripal to talk about his latest book, The Flip.
Dr Kripal holds the J. Newton Rayzor Chair in Philosophy and Religious Thought at Rice University and is the associate director of the Center for Theory and Research at Esalen.
The Flip is a fascinating exploration of what happens when hard scientists or medical professionals encounter something anomalous or out of place within their materialist framework and then... flip.
Along the way we talk models of mind, science's impact on mysticism, what the Humanities can do better, and feeling our way toward a much better understanding of the imagination.
This week, we are joined by author, traditional witch and fellow southern Tasmanian, Lee Morgan.
In this free-ranging, in-person discussion, we explore the elusive challenge of definitions, restoring the imaginal to prominence, responding to and with place, self-censorship and UPG, and a whole lot more.
