    Beauty and Joy as Critical Tools for the Times

    Beauty and Joy as Critical Tools for the Times

    Are you feeling the depth of the pressure?  Are you feeling the magnitude of the invitation of the moment?  If you are feeling it and wondering how to walk through this with grace, this episode is for you.

    These are the hardest times most of us alive today are going to face, and they are asking everything from us.  We have entered into the territory of initiation and we are not going to come out of it until we go all the way through it and either become the greater beauty that is beckoning us forth from within us and within the center of creation, or our endeavor as a species fails and we go fallow while evolution takes its time to envision and birth something new.

    Yes, I do believe that.

    So how do we do this?  How do we walk through this time in a way that leads us towards that greater beauty and actually initiates us?  Two critical tools I have identified are beauty and joy.  "Beauty Feeds the Soul" is a central principle in my own life, and as we have entered into the dark night of a soul as a species, we need that nourishment more than ever.  How can you bring more beauty to life in the moments of your days?  Joy is essential to being able to maintain our presence and sustain the depth of intensity that this time demands of us.  How do we bring more joy to life inside of ourselves regardless of our circumstances?

    These are the questions explored in this episode.  Dive in and let's rock this.

    Features the song Gaia's Child from my album Fertile Darkness, available for purchase and streaming on bandcamp:

    The Art of Grieving

    The Art of Grieving

    Grief.  It is a part of life.  We know of its presence, but do we know how to be with it?  How to dance with it?  How to engage with it in a life-affirming and creative way?  Living in a society that insists upon the facade of breezy "normalcy" grief is often perceived with disdain or discomfort and rushed towards resolution into a "nicer" emotional state, but that robs us of it's incredible bounty of gifts and retards our development as true human beings.

    In this very vulnerable episode I speak from the place of deep grief within myself, encouraging us to open to the uncomfortable companionship of grief so as to avail ourselves of its incredible medicine and as a way to move more deeply into the territory of soul.

    Includes the song "Passage" from my album Fertile Darkness, available now on Bandcamp, Apple Music, and Spotify.

    The Art of Listening

    The Art of Listening

    We live in a world of communication: as humans one of our primary modes of connection is the medium of conversation, which is a dance of giving and receiving, the receiving being based in the art of listening.  Listening is something that we don't think much about, because for the most part people assume that they do it.  I don't agree.  I think listening happens very rarely and if we were to truly listen to each other, to life, and to the world around us, we would enter into a new realm of relating and experiencing life in the world.

    So how does listening happen?  What is it made of?  How is it undone?

    In this journey we will explore a few key concepts including "The Volley of 'I.s'", "Riffing on Keywords", and "The Space of the Conversation," among other things.  We will explore some simple principles for deepening into listening and how that can vastly improve the quality of your conversations, your relationships, and your life.

    Includes the song "Passion" from my new album "Fertile Darkness" which is available on bandcamp, spotify, and apply music.

    Protecting the Imagination

    Protecting the Imagination

    In magical work, the imagination (i-magi-nation) is our central tool for envisioning the possibilities that our practices are meant to bring to life.  Not only that, but it is a realm of deep mystery and power woven into our soul, a way to talk with the creative powers of existence as a collaborator in the experience of Being.  Because of these things, I know that protecting the imagination is of the utmost importance, especially now when we are in the transition between worlds and the outcome of this transition is uncertain and being made by our daily doings.

    Join me in an exploration of the importance and practice of protecting the imagination.  

    Features the song "Holy World" from my album Fertile Darkness now available on bandcamp, spotify, and apple music.

    A Moment of Magnitude

    A Moment of Magnitude

    Here we are!

    We have arrived to the moment of transformation that so many of us have known was coming for so long.  The possibility of a more beautiful world for all Life is immanent, and wether that possibility takes root and flourishes rests in large part in how we show up.

    Let's talk about embodying our power.  Let's talk about curiosity, humility, and clarity of intent.  Let's talk about really showing up for it all.  Let's dive in and get this thing done.

    Features the song "Mama's Song" from my album Fertile Darkness available here;

    Also features the poem "This Time" by me

    This moment... 

    These days...  

    Time will unveil how this dance 

    Carves the story of the soul 

    At its leisure.  

    What are we becoming?  

    The epic that begins with one word 

    Becoming a stanza 

    Becoming a sentence 

    Full of breath and imagination 

    Becoming finally a myth 

    In the body of the world  

    A gift.  

    This is the magical weaving 

    of Destiny and Time  

    When tears and the creases of joy 

    have sculpted the verses in the poem 

    of a Being 

    Into a legacy of beauty 

    That will bathe all that come along 

    In times steady unfolding  

    Then and only then 

    Will the full glory of the offering 

    Be apparent  

    A vast sea in which to immerse 

    In the poetry Of Life.

    Holding the Dream of What's Possible

    Holding the Dream of What's Possible

    This is a strange world, and this is one of the strangest times that many of us have experienced so far.  In this moment it can feel hard, impossible even, to access a sense of possibility in regards to the dream that we hold for a more beautiful world for all Life and Beings.  But I believe this is a moment in which the dream can be most richly forged, and the roots of it made strong in inhospitable soil, giving it extraordinary fortitude, longevity and potency.


    I believe that the dreamer and visionary within us is a living element Life's very own dream to arrange itself into a greater order of beauty, and that our lives are our opportunity to participate in and contribute to the furtherance of that dream for the benefit of all to whatever degree we are inspired and able to do so.


    This is the view that gives me ground and renews my faith when it seems that there's no way to the beauty that I know in my bones is ready to be born.  This and broadening my awareness out into the scope of time and realizing that it's true: I am my ancestors wildest dream.  And I can dream wildly for my descendants and then use my life to make the way for that wild dream to come true for them.

    Join me, and let us together explore the territory of Holding the Dream of What's Possible for the World.

    Features the song Gaias Child from my new album Fertile Darkness, avaiable at https://maitreyawolf.bandcamp.com/
