Gods and Goddesses
Lunisolar Mind IX: Wolf Moon #27
We are still in the grip of winter, the sky is occluded by grey fur, and the tough love of the Wolf Moon grabs us by the scruff of our necks. Reminding us to wake up from our slumber, to contain our own power, and make our own luck.
Lunisolar Mind IV: Fruit Moon #17
The fourth episode of our podcast within the podcast – a series of full moon specials, released on every full moon – where we turn our attention to the glowing celestial body that has inspired artists and mystics for millenia.
Dominic Kelly: The Hero Light – Irish Myth and Epic #8
Dominic Kelly is a performance storyteller who has ventured deep into the vast landscape of stories that surround the Irish mythological hero Cú Chulainn – so much so that he cycled around Ireland to see all the mythical places found in the Táin, sometimes called Ireland’s National Epic or the Irish Iliad.
Rune Hjarnø Rasmussen: How to build a god – Immanence and Symbolism #6
Our guest Rune Hjarnø Rasmussen is a historian of religion and founder of the project Nordic Animism. His PhD "The Stick and the Calabash“ is a result of extensive anthropological research of the Brazilian Candomblé tradition and of how the archetypal energies of gods are manifested there. We talk about trance and possession, conspiracy theories, and modern society’s loss of a subjective relationship with the forces of the world. And underneath it all we ask the question - what exactly is a god and how do you build it?
Maria Kvilhaug: The Maiden with the Mead #5
Descriptions of rituals in the Poetic Edda meet mediterranean mystery religions and Carlos Castañeda!
Christmas Yuletide Special: The Pig #4
At this time of year, when pork will be served on many a holiday plate, we turn our attention to the pig - an animal both loved and loathed since ancient times. What are its mythological connections?
Join us in the divine muck, where we encounter kings and goddesses from Greek and Norse Mythology, as well as Celtic Druids and a fearsome ghost pig from the Swedish midwinter forests.
Inanna: Warrior, Trickster, Lover #2
A deep dive into the story of the extraordinarily powerful and multifaceted Mesopotamian goddess Inanna, prompted by the recent online release of Mikael Öberg's experimental collaboration with soundmaker Lee Berwick. Prepare for the underworld!
