So much of Heathenry seems focused on Germanic society, what if there was a form of Heathenry that had a broader European outlook? It was a fitting night as snow raged in North America for us to be joined by our guest Snow to talk about Gothic Heathens.
We get are joined by the amazing Risa from the Missing Witches podcast and we talk about feminism in witchcraft, changing the world, animal kinship meditations and the power of keeping your practice private.
We get the opportunity to interview Dr. David Wallace of the University of Pittsburgh
“My original training was in theoretical physics: I took a Physics PhD (also at Oxford) before my interests took me towards more conceptual and foundational questions in physics, and from there into philosophy.
My research interests are mostly in the philosophy of physics. I’ve been particularly active in trying to develop and defend the Everett interpretation of quantum theory (often called the “Many-Worlds Interpretation”); my book on the Everett interpretation, “The Emergent Multiverse”, was published in June 2012. But I also have philosophical and conceptual interests in quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, general relativity, symmetry and gauge theory, and basically pretty much all of contemporary philosophy of physics. Outside philosophy of physics, I’m interested in emergence and reductionism, in structural realism, and in decision theory.”
We are joined by Dr. Kenneth James of the C G Jung Institute of Chicago to talk about Jungian thought and how it influences and is influenced by Spirituality and modern psychology. And we cover individuation, shadow work, the Kabbala and being the facilitator of your own life along the way!
