A weekly podcast about magic, culture and the paranormal. Coming to you from Tasmania
Talking Devotional Astro Magic and The Decans | Brian Wilkins
Poet, author, taiji instructor and intentionist (this will make sense shortly), Brian Wilkins joins the show this week, on the occasion of the publication of his book, A Wheel of Small Gods.
We discuss how poetry can be a container or place for spirits, different methods of experiencing and understanding energy, healing magic, magic-as-time-travel as well as the how's and why's of coming into relation with star spirits.
Super fun discussion. Enjoy!

Reiki with Lance Baker - Rune Soup Healing Dialogues
The Q3 premium member course beginning shortly is on energy healing and -to go alongside it- we'll be doing a series of dialogues with practitioners from various energy modalities.
First cab off the rank is fellow Newcastle boy, Lance Baker, to talk about certainly the most well-known (and perhaps the least understood?) modality, Reiki. Lance is a Reiki Master, hypnotherapist, author and teacher.
Definitely the right person to talk me through it!

Talking Ancestral Living and Sacred Landscapes | Matawhero Lloyd
The one and only Matawhero Lloyd returns to the show this week. More specifically, while I am in New Zealand, I returned to Whetu Ariki to spend some time with Matawhero and to see what’s been happening with his pā project over the past couple of years. This is a project many of you will be familiar with from Ani.Mystic, where it gets a whole chapter of its own.
I’m releasing this one as an audio version as well as the video tour because -while I definitely think you should actually watch it so you can put images to the words- Matawhero goes really deep on Maori metaphysics, indigenous philosophy and all kinds of powerful topics. So there’s still a lot to pick up just in the conversation.
But if you do want to watch it, jump over to YouTube and watch it there.
H2 2022 Astrological Forecast | Austin Coppock

You know you want it. Get in.
Note: This was a video show so you can watch along on YouTube if you prefer.
Thoughts On Shamanic Healing From The Middle Of The Amazon | Solo Show
An Amazonian solo show this week, exploring the one-year anniversary of providing shamanic energy healings.
One of the things I mention during the episode is how I consider some of the seemingly bolder claims of shamanic healing from a different perspective having been in the jungle a number of times now. There’s certainly a shared underlying metaphysics there.
Note: As mentioned at the top of the episode, this is a video one. So you may want to jump over to YouTube instead.

Visiting Pablo Amaringo's Amazonian Art School in Peru | Solo Show
Something different -and personally very exciting- this week. In the few days in between my Ecuadorian ayahuasca retreat and a return to my Peruvian jungle dieta, I got to visit the art school founded by my favourite artist, Pablo Amargino. Even better… I got given the tour by Pablo’s son, Juan!
Juan is himself an artist, so I also got to see some of his work, and some of the work of Pablo’s students. Plus I got the opportunity to ask some questions about Peruvian shamanism and curanderismo, and have some of the amazing concepts depicted in the painting spelled out.
This is very much a video episode, rather than an audio on, so be sure to head over to YouTube and check it out.
One the great esoteric philosophy podcasts
My grandparents lived near an occult shop called the Brass Unicorn. As a teen I used to sneak off to visit the shop. The smell of incense, the bizarre ritual devices, herbs and grimoires took me to another world. The fellow running the store was a scary looking old hippie with long scraggily beard and hair (a bit like Alan Moore) but he was a nice enough shopkeep. Thirty years on it's interesting how much occult philosophy has become mainstream. Rune Soup delves into a lot of these esoteric concepts to help make sense of them. Yes, he can get political at times but who doesn't these days. Some topics are unavoidable. Everything is fair game in philosophy and metaphysics.
New Listener Critique
I am a relatively new listener and I love the idea of the show - the esoteric, magical topics and discussion. I just wrapped up the January 13, 2016 Christopher Knowles episode. He rambled and I feel this episode was a complete loss of my time. No substance, he seemed to lack focus, and it felt like he was completely scattered. I think Gordon stepped in to essentially aid the audience.
Love your stuff
