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. Enjoy!

Talking Supernatural Thailand| Jenx
The one and only Jenx returns to the show to discuss his latest book, Supernatural Thailand. And so of course we discuss graveyards, Naga caves, boy spirits, dying for one’s city and a whole bunch more. Then we end the show looking at some of Adjarn Apichai’s forecasts for the next few years and where they precisely align with our own. Great stuff, as always! Please note I’m still in the Andes so there are a few audio dropouts. Also this was recorded as a live video discussion if you would prefer to watch rather than listen. Enjoy!

Ani.Mystic Abroad! | Solo Show
A solo show this week, in which I explore Ani.Mystic now that it's about two months out from launch, and how it has been immensely helpful in coming to terms with Mexican and explicitly Mayan sense making. As I have basically been travelling since the thing came out, I've been remiss in sharing some of the shows that have kindly had me on to discuss the book. So let that be your show notes for this week. Each episode is remarkably, remarkably different in a way that shows I've done for Star.Ships or The Chaos Protocols or Pieces of Eight weren't. And I genuinely think that's down to the material in the book. Which means, if you are so inclined, you have hours of material to enjoy! (And hopefully that makes up for the travel-based radio silence.) This week's solo show is the audio of my presentation and discussion with the guys from Watkins -the most recent discussion of the book- for reasons spelled out in the opening of the episode. Show Notes Gordon talking Ani.Mystic on The Higherside Chats. Gordon talking Ani.Mystic on Coffee and Divination. Gordon talking Ani.Mystic on Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio.

Talking Ways of Being | James Bridle
I joke at the beginning of the episode that James wrote the best book I read this year that I didn’t write. But actually, it’s true. Ways of Being is an excellent book that toils in many of the same vineyards as Ani.Mystic. So James and I discuss our notions of technology, artificial intelligence, publishing, language and how these all interrelate and are interdependent. We also have an excellent discussion on the true significance of randomness as well as speculating on political and technological futures. Enjoy! Show Notes Get Ways of Being.

Talking Dreams and Time | Gary Lachman

And the topics of the hour are dreams and time: precognition, sacred time, time slips, machine time and what even am dreams in the first place? Definite food for thought here. Always a pleasure!

Advice For Professional Astrologers During An Apocalypse | Solo Show
Wait a minute. Gordon of all people is giving advice about what now? Relax. I truly would never dream of it. Think of it more like Advice To A Young Wife From An Old Mistress. It's a dramatic frame that allows us to explore ways of being with this moment that -oh, just a thought- don't contribute to a field of war that brings everyone closer to nuclear annihilation while somehow assuming doing so gives you the moral high ground. So it's not actually (just?) for professional astrologers and other fortune tellers. It's for any of you looking around at the entire planet losing its mind and working out what role -in your profession, in your family, in your friendship group, in your communities- you are being called to step into. It's my offering to you, delivered in the form of a presentation given to a strictly hypothetical group of professional astrologers. Yeah, it's long. I mention at the beginning that the personal reason for sharing this is a healing one, around finding transformative ways of being with anger and defence. It may be challenging to watch or listen to for some of you. Healthy anger is a useful warning that situations or people are approaching important boundaries (physical or otherwise). And it is not that it means these boundaries must never be crossed or must always be defended. Anger simply calls you to an urgent awareness that boundary business is afoot. For instance, being wrong about something or some position you have taken in which you have invested a lot of emotional energy. When someone points this out or when you begin to realise it yourself, the anger signal is there. But this is probably one instance where you allow that signal to draw your attention to the boundary and, rather than defending it, allow that pent up energy to dissipate across it. I sincerely hope you come to your own understanding of the sentiment in which this presentation is offered, why it is offered at this time, as well as my intention that you find whatever medicine is meant for you in it. Note: This is a video presentation with slides and such. It is only available on Rumble. Though it will still work fine as an audio offering if that is what you prefer.

Talking Pagan Beingness | Rhyd Wildermuth
Everyone's favourite expat druid and substacker, Rhyd Wildermuth, returns to the show this week. His latest book, Being Pagan: A Guide To Re-Enchant Your Life, forms the through-line of a wide ranging discussion on beingness, paganism, embodiment and the general state of the world.

Talking Anton LaVey | Carl Abrahamsson
Everyone's favourite Swedish polymath returns to the show for a discussion about the Black Pope, Anton LaVey, himself. This is on the occasion of the release of Carl's latest book, Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan. It's the biography LaVey boths needs and deserves. So we talk a little bit about his life but mostly we examine his legacy, what he might think of today's cancel culture and whether or not the ol' devil has got his dues yet. It's a great chat and had both Carl and I reminiscing about our own wayward youths. Enjoy! Show Notes Get the book here. (It's also available as an audiobook.) Follow Carl's work here.

The one(s) and only(s) Miguel Conner of Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio and Chris Knowles of The Secret Sun join the show this week for a discussion of all things astro-gnostic. We discuss the true antiquity and use of star lore, stars in the Bible, gnostics in history as well as a gnostic study of history as well as which components of gnosticism may or may not be universal. This chat was arranged in honour of a conference that Miguel is arranging that Chris and I will both be speaking at next month (March 20 - 22) in Playa del Carmen called the Astro Gnostic Conference.

Talking The Shamanic Origins of Astrology | Michael Ofek
This week, we welcome to the show astrologer, philosopher and shamanic practitioner, Michael Ofek. Michael and I have a great chat about topics very near and dear to our hearts: star lore, star magic, and the true antiquity of what we can broadly call astrology, or perhaps coming into relation with Sky Country. Along the way, we also talk about the metaphysics of light, the shamanic origins of Greek and European civilisation, hag attacks and spontaneous OBEs. Good times! (Note: This is a repost as there was an error with the file. This is another live video episode so if you would prefer to watch it rather than listen, jump over to YouTube or Odysee.)

Revisiting Apocalypse Pharmaka | Solo Show
This week we complete our revisitation of classic blog post series from back in the day. And we have saved my favourite for last: Apocalypse Pharmaka. It’s my favourite for a bunch of reasons that I explain in the episode. But, basically, the contested landscape of medicine and power and the body is where the witch and the cunning person has always lived. (Not that you’d know it from looking around in the past couple of years, although the shrillness is mercifully receding.) So if you want to say you are a participant in the ‘western’ understanding of magic or witchcraft in any capacity and have the people around you keep a straight face, one way or the other you need to ‘come to terms’ -in the animist sense- with this contested landscape that is our homeland. It really is as simple as that. Of course -and this is pretty much the whole point- we have all been pushed off these homelands over the past two years and into both literal and metaphoric quarantine camps. Which is to say these discussions are even more fraught than at the time I wrote the series. So you won’t find this episode on YouTube. You can listen to the audio version as per usual, or you can watch along on Odysee or Rumble. Enjoy! Show Notes The Apocalypse Pharmaka series.

Talking Energy Medicine and the Field with Peter Mark Adams
Researcher, energy healer and fellow Scarlet Imprint author, Peter Mark Adams, returns to the show this week. We discuss his book, The Power of the Healing Field. We also have a fantastic chat about what the field even am, and why it is an idea and framework whose time has come. We explore various energy-based healing modalities and pause to consider that we should not even be using the word 'alternative' for such disciplines, as the majority of the population of the planet incorporates them into standard medical practice. It is us in the west who are the 'alternative'. Excellent stuff, and a great discussion to for the first month of the year! (Note: This episode was first livestreamed on YouTube, should you wish to watch it instead.) Show Notes Get The Power of the Healing Field. Peter's website. Mind Connection Healing.

Blood, Prophecy and Forgiveness: New Year Special with Conner Habib
We begin the new year with the traditional podcast catch-up with Conner Habib. This time around we explore the full cosmic significance of the heart, the metaphysics of blood and blood sacrifice and then spend a lot of time with the notion of prophecy: What it is, what it isn’t, which medicines it holds, what it says about time and what it can say about our moment. Then we turn to 2022 and thrash out some frameworks for sin, trauma and forgiveness. A splendid start to the year! Show Notes Conner on Patreon. Conner on Twitter.

Revisiting Archonology: Understanding Power and Conspiracy
Continuing our revisitations this week, we turn to the archonology series -a long running exploration of power and conspiracy. And you know what? A lot of these have held up pretty well. I especially like how so many of the videos shared in the posts are now gone from YouTube, and how many links have died. It’s like burning the edges of a pirate map. Adds character. Enjoy!

Talking Deck Creation and Fortune Telling | Colin Alexander
A bumper episode this week and a veritable romp through the Fortune's Fools project as the finish line appears over the horizon. I was told going into a project like this that it would show up in your life in strange ways: seeing a cardiologist the week of the Heart card, having a friend lose is eyebrow ring at your house the week of the Ring card, taking ayahuasca the week of the Tree card. None of these things were planned out beforehand but if you read cards, you know these things tend to happen. They just seem a little extra when you're creating a deck. So artist extraordinaire Colin Alexander returns to the show in order to reminisce and commiserate on this wacky journey so far. This episode will probably work better as a video, but it still works audio only, especially if you want to download this large image of all the cards we discuss in the episode. Otherwise you can jump over to YouTube and watch it there. Enjoy! Show Notes Watch the episode on YouTube. Pre-order the cards and the book. Join the Fortune's Fools Telegram group.
