Farming Soul

an interview with Patricia Damery

patricia-dameryPatricia Damery is a Jungian analyst in private practice in Napa, California, where she and her husband also grow grapes, raise goats, and grow and distill lavender and other aromatic plants. They are a Demeter certified Biodynamic organic ranch. Her professional writing often offers a Jungian lens on biodynamics as they practice it on their ranch, bridging the work of Carl Jung and Rudolf Steiner.
Patricia’s writing concerns the lively experience of spirit of place. This involves being more conscious not only of the personal psyche, but of our relationship to the animate and inanimate world as well. It necessitates a shift in consciousness, a “re-membering” of an older, more open-hearted approach to the natural world and to each other, while also valuing intellect.  She believes this shift is critical to the survival of life as we know it. She is the author of “Farming Soul: A Tale of Initiation”, (the second edition with a Foreword by Robert Sardello, has been published in July 2014), and two novels: “Snakes”, chronicles the protagonist’s relationship to family and earth through the folk stories and the mythology of the serpent. “Goatsong”, is the story of a ten year old girl and three goat women and the tragic, transformative year they spent together.

Patricia speaks with Joanna about: her experience of the California earthquake; Lilith and the soul of the Nature; the Serpent energy and the Earth; synchronicity, heart energy and earth energies; communicating with the soul of the world; in relationship with the energy of of the wild; biodynamic farming: cooperating with natural forces; the Earth frequency; a wider experience of community; the unity of the practical and the spiritual; “everything we need is in the present”.
