    Adam Sommer – 53 – Breathwork and Astrology

    Adam Sommer – 53 – Breathwork and Astrology

    Adam and I are hosting a workshop on September 16,17 in Boulder CO. We plan to work with astrology and breathwork to get into some new and interesting areas of the inner lives of participants. Here is some info on the event.
     
    As Above, So Below.
    Wiser words have never been spoken.
    This hermetic axiom is hugely important when one approaches both astrology and breathwork.
    Have you ever wondered if there were “external” inflences on your life or on your vision quests? This workshop will help you get a bit closer to understanding how closely related the stars are to your own inner wisdom.
    This workshop features both Astrology and Transpersonal Breathwork (Stan Grof Method).
    Your facilitators will be Adam Sommer of Exploring Astrology with Adam Sommer http://www.holestoheavens.com/ and Joe Moore of Breckenridge Breathwork http://breckbreath.com/ .
    Friday we will have some introductory discussions about how breathwork experiences and astrology relate to each other. Saturday we will do breathwork accompanied by evocative music, expressive drawing and sharing circles for integration. Adam will be providing astrological insights to all related to their experiences during and after the drawing.
    The workshop will run from 6-8p on Friday the 16th and 9-5 on Saturday the 17th.

    Sam Webster – 52 – A.N. Whitehead and magic. Theory informs practice.

    Sam Webster – 52 – A.N. Whitehead and magic. Theory informs practice.

    The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato. – A.N. Whitehead
    The chief danger to philosophy is narrowness in the selection of evidence. – A.N. Whitehead
    In this interview with Sam Webster we discuss the English philosopher and mathematician Alfred North Whitehead. Whitehead’s most famous for his lectures given at Harvard where he lays out process philosophy. This is a fundamentally different way of understanding reality than the standard Newtonian and Aristotelian way of viewing reality. It goes substantially beyond relativity theory and helps us make sense of mystical and magical experiences. It states that substance does not exist, only process exists.
    People currently working in this field are Ervin Laszlo and John Cobb.
    Sam and I discuss Whitehead in the context of Thelema, magic and paganism. It is a world view and philosophy that should help some people understand the work they’re doing in these fields.
    Philosophy is as vitally important as ever.
    Sam was previously a guest on episode 32 discussing his book Tantric Thelema.

    Thad McKraken – Galactic Dialog – 50

    Thad McKraken – Galactic Dialog – 50

    In this super fun interview Thad and I talk about stuff all over the occult and psychedelic rainbow. A self described psychedelic occultist, Thad is a musician, painter, video artist, author, blogger, occultist and now curator of an art gallery. We have truck loads of common interests including Robert Anton Wilson, chaos and sigil magic, evolution of occultism and psychedelic cultures, and much more. Thad had some criticisms of A.Crowley in this podcast and he expands on them in this Disinfo article (Titled – Aleister Crowley was a Total Hack Magickian. Just my Opinion). I enjoyed reading his book The Galactic Dialog and I think many of you would really like it as well. Check it out on Amazon below. I think you will be hard pressed to dislike this episode. Enjoy and let me know what you think!

    OS ep 48 – Maraya Karena – Collapse of the New Age, Cyborg Anthropology and Mystic Permaculture.

    Maraya’s Main site
    We go all over the map with this interview. I loved recording with the fascinating and powerful Maraya and hope to do it again in the near future. Check out the links below for information on what we discussed.
    Sorry for the audio quality. It does get better after a minute or two. The recording device was slamming the limits for the first minute of recording, but I was able to catch it shortly after it kicked off.
    Cyborg Anthropology
    Shit new age girls say – Maraya speaks.
    Student of Process Work.
    We even dig into Soul Retreival and possible dynamics of reincarnation.
