His most recent book A Candle and the Crossroads: A Book of Appalachian Conjure and Southern-Rootwork will be published in Nov’ 12.
Orion speaks with Matthew about “re-naturing” ourselves; the web that shapes us; the intelligent rhythms of life….
Moss Magill is an award winning playwright and poet, as well as an Ovate student in the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids. He is also the co-founder of the Circle of Coll Druidic Seed Group in Seattle. Moss spends his time between Seattle and Port Townsend, Washington where he is a professional trainer, writer, and artist.
Moss speaks with Matthew about the “tree walks”: practical inspirations for peace; “slow down, we can’t hear you;” finding peace inside the conflict; the heart connection…
Morgan Brent (MT Xen) has a PhD in anthropology, however he left academia after engagements with herbal healing traditions clued him into a vast Gaian intelligence, with which he became conversant, and soon allied with its purposes. He now specializes in the prescriptive teachings (Gaian dharma) of medicinal plants, aka ‘Nature’s plan to save the humans’. In service to this guidance, he writes articles and essays, births, collects, and strings together songs into malas of embodied story telling, and makes medicines of all kinds, among them events both large (Singing Alive Gatherings, now in their 6th year), and small (Creation-Song circles). These events are all about sharing songs (and prayers, chants, blessings, and song om) of personal and planetary renewal ~ which he considers food for a spiritually hungry world.
Morgan speaks with Matthew about entheogens; the “Gaian immune system;” ayahuasca and planetary awakening; cultural midwifes and the deeper, transpersonal levels of imagination…
