    Magical Thinking 101: What It Really Is And How To Improve Your Life With It

    Magical Thinking 101: What It Really Is And How To Improve Your Life With It

    This week's solo show forms part of a collection of observations lining us up for the beginning of the five-month, gargantuan Time Magic course we're starting in August.
    Here, we explore the quiet politics of magical thinking:
    The origin of the term. How it sort of is and sort of isn't like magical realism. Examples of it in the history of western esotericism. How you can make that inward turn toward magical thinking, and what any blocks in that process might be telling you. Enjoy!

    Magical Egypt and The Legacy of John Anthony West | Chance Gardner and Vanese McNeil

    Magical Egypt and The Legacy of John Anthony West | Chance Gardner and Vanese McNeil

    Chance Gardner and Vanese McNeil, producers of the legendary documentary series Magical Egypt, join the show this week.
    We discuss
    Getting history right and wrong. The legacy of John Anthony West and R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz. Materialism and its impact on studying history. The latest series of Magical Egypt -which Gordon is in! I mention at the outset that this episode was actually recorded six months ago. The plan was to release it at the same time as a video on hermeticism that I was going to shoot at an Ancient Egypt exhibition in Canberra (which is mentioned in my animism series). But that didn't happen, and then I thought I would do it at the Island of the Sun in Bolivia, and so on. Anyway, it's not six months later and I am choosing to blame the curse of the mummy, lol.
    A super fun chat, nonetheless. And a real high point in my own life to actually be in the legendary Magical Egypt series myself.

    Iamblichus, Theurgy and The Body | Professor Gregory Shaw

    Iamblichus, Theurgy and The Body | Professor Gregory Shaw

    Gregory Shaw, Professor of Religious Studies at Stonehill College, joins the show to discuss, theurgy, the work of Iamblichus, and how we have probably got the Neoplatonists' attitude to the body quite wrong.
     
    We discuss
     
    The DESCENT of rather than ASCENT TO the gods. The theurgic imagination and how it relates to the spirit world. The role of divination in the development of the soul. How Imablichus can teach us a better way to compare between cultures. The necessity for ceremony.  
    Professor Shaws joins us to discuss his latest book, Hellenic Tantra, which I am pretty sure is the best book I've read this year. Get it here.

    Adventure As Epistemology | Solo Show

    Let's make the most of my jet lag and jump right back into regular live streams the morning after I arrive back on the farm!

    In this episode, we discuss

    How and why Wade Davis is my hero. The definition of adventure and why that matters for magicians. How adventuring creates reality. Sacred travel, how it is and isn't different from adventure. Tips and advice for your own adventures.
    Then I also share some stories from the High Andes, from Lake Titicaca, from the steamy cities of Paraguay and the mountains of Southern Brazil.
    Note: As this was a live stream episode, and the Q&A starts around the 92 minute mark.
    And it's May, so don't forget to contribute to the Missing Witches fundraising and reparations drive!

Intelligent and stimulating

Just discovered this podcast. In a world of frequent nonsense, this one is a breath of bracing fresh air. Consistently interesting choice of guests from diverse places too.

Not worth it anymore.

I was previously a regular listener, but this podcast’s descent into Covid-denial, conspiracy theories and Putinist propaganda is unbearable.
I’m out.

Ivalore ,

Very in-depth and well researched.

Love podcasts that gives the listener something to ponder and think about. A very educational podcast and well researched. Gives the listener the motivation to find out more on the subjects discussed.
Thank you for the very professional and interesting podcasts.
