It is the feminine within each of us, male or female, which connects us to all that is living. A balance longs to be re-created. “She Sings to the Stars” is the first film of that cycle. Together with her brother, “She Sings to the Stars” producer, Jonnie Corcoranan entrepreneur who is an ardent cinephile and has launched successful startups – she is currently developing the second film of the cycle set in contemporary Ireland with a working title, “Now and Also Now”.

Just Behind the Surface

an interview with Cidny Bullens

Cidny_BullensIn this week’s episode, Cidny Bullens performs heartfelt songs and speaks with Joanna about: telling the story of being human; a man in a woman’s body; the truth of embodying one’s own story; the process of learning how to live with grief; being part of the mysterious universe; embracing the light and the shadow; two defining moments in her life; songs from a deeper place; the choice to live without bitterness.

 

Cidny Bullens is a two-time Grammy nominee whose 40-year career in the music business began auspiciously working with Elton John, Bob Dylan, Gene Clark, Rod Stewart, The Alpha Band, and Pop producer/writer Bob Crewe. She also sang three lead vocals on the movie soundtrack of “Grease”, then recorded her own critically acclaimed album 1979’s “Desire Wire”, which earned her a Grammy nomination and catapulted Cindy into the international spotlight. In March of 1996, Cindy lost her 11 year-old daughter Jessie to cancer. That tragedy inspired Cindy to write and record her widely acclaimed 1999 CD “Somewhere Between Heaven and Earth”, featuring appearances by Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, Bryan Adams, Beth Neilson Chapman, Rodney Crowell, and a haunting duet with her elder daughter, Reid Crewe. The CD received the Best Rock Album Award in 2000 by the AFIM Independent Music Association. She is also the author of the CDs “Neverland”, “dream #29”, “Howling Trains and Barking Dogs”, and as a member of the uprising super-trio The Refugees, the CDs “Unbound” and  “THREE”. The Refugees recently began work on their third album in Los Angeles, to be released some time in 2016. In 2011, Cindy became Cidny, making the difficult and daunting decision to transition from female to male, not knowing what the personal or professional response would be. Cidny is now writing and performing again – has written and is working on the production of his one wo/man show “Somewhere Between”, which will premier in Santa Fe, New Mexico in February of 2016.

Deep Change

an interview with Susan P. Plummer

Dr. Susan P. Plummer is the director of the Santa Barbara Alliance for Living and Dying Well, a consortium of major end of life care services and providers in the Santa Barbara area. Also a licensed psychotherapist, she has had a part time private practice for over 25 years.
Starting at a very young age, Dr. Plummer had a curiosity about other dimensions. This grew into a passionate lifetime interest in experiences of major life transitions, which she began to investigate under the guidance of leading theorist, Dr. Amadeo Giorgi. Her research yielded encouraging results, which turned out to be navigational—offering ways for individuals to move through very challenging yet promising journeys of deep change.
Her recent book, Deep Change: Befriending the Unknown, grew out of this doctoral research. Her book and presentations address the intricacies of transformation as they apply to individuals as well as the collective. Her popular workshops explore grief, bereavement, and the call to transformation as an avenue for growth in individuals and organizations.

Susan speaks with Joanna about: a walk in the unknown; bringing a new world into being; the process of “deep change”; listening together to the longing for something that wants to emerge; allowing the aliveness; radical relatedness; the shifts of deep change; belonging to the world; a collective change emerging.

Kindness and Dignity are Lovers

an interview with Joanna Harcourt-Smith

Joanna speaks with Cecile Lipworth  about her book “Tripping the Bardo with Timothy Leary”: the historic and politic context; a sinchronistic encounter; the medicines of Gaia; my outlaw philosopher; looking down at the abyss; the solution is dissolution; the soul fancy dress party; recapitulation and healing; responsible expansion of consciousness; facing the personal and cultural shadow; becoming an authentic, empowered woman; the greatest taste on earth.

This show was broadcast live on the “Collected Words” show on 12/18/2013.

Of Seeds and Dignity

an interview with Martín Prechtel

A master of eloquence and innovative language, Martín Prechtel is a leading thinker, writer and teacher whose work, both written and oral, hopes to promote the subtlety, irony and pre-modern vitality hidden in any living language. As a half blood Native American with a Pueblo Indian upbringing, his life took him from New Mexico to the village of Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala. There becoming a full village member of the Tzutujil Mayan population, he eventually served as a principal in that body of village leaders responsible for instructing the young people in the meanings of their ancient stories through the rituals of adult rights of passage. Once again residing in his native New Mexico, Martín teaches at his international school Bolad’s Kitchen. Through story, music, ritual and writing, Martín helps people in many lands to retain their diversity while remembering their own sense of place in the daily sacred through the search for the Indigenous Soul.

Martín speaks with Joanna about: the mind you never imagined you have; of seeds and dignity; becoming a more beautiful culture; re-membering the ancestral ground; metabolizing grief into beauty

Sanctuary Anywhere

David and Judy Pierce created “Friends Along the Road” after the death of Lilli, their only child and best friend. With Lilli gone, Dave and Judy no longer wanted to live. Nevertheless, they managed to hang on. In May of 2000 they quit their jobs and embarked on a two-year journey through the back roads of the U.S. and Canada to see if they could find reasons to keep living. After visiting with family members, meeting many friends old and new, and doing much soul-searching, Dave and Judy came to realize that they had learned a few things about grief. Knowing that everybody dies, and that all us suffer the loss of loved ones, the couple finally found something worth living for: helping others in deep grief. The story of their journey is chronicled in David’s book, “Looking for Lilli: Living With the Death of Our Only Child”

In 2002, Dave and Judy embraced the philosophy of caring support. Finding that there are many misconceptions about grieving, they came to understand that grief is an entirely personal experience, and that no one has the right to suggest how another ought to experience it. That’s why they created “Friends Along the Road:” to make such places available, and to be able to recommend similar places created by others.

www.friendsalongtheroad.org

David and Judy speak with Joanna about their life journey and the insights, grief and Nature, being present to the grief, “sanctuary anywhere,” forthcoming projects, “we are all in this together”…

Sobonfu has written two books, The Spirit of Intimacy, and Welcoming Spirit Home, her newest offering which draws on rituals and practices involving community, birth miscarriage and children.

Richard Doyle and the Ecstasy of Language

an interview with Richard Doyle

Richard Doyle earned his Ph.D. in Rhetoric at UC Berkeley. He was the Mellon Post Doctoral Fellow in History and Social Science of the Life Sciences at MIT in 1993. Professor of Rhetoric, Doyle holds appointments in English, Science Technology & Society and the College of Information Science and Technology at Penn State University and was Visiting Associate Professor at UC Berkeley, Department of Rhetoric in 2003.

Doyle teaches courses in the history and rhetoric of emerging technosciences – sustainability, space colonization, biotechnology, nanotechnology, psychedelic science, information technologies, biometrics – and the cultural and literary contexts from which they sprout. Professor Doyle has published two books: On Beyond Living: Rhetorical Transformations of the Life Sciences (Stanford, 1997) and Wetwares:Experiments in PostVital Living( Minnesota, 2003) – in a putative trilogy about emerging transhuman knowledges. These knowledges and practices, linked to molecular biology, artificial life, nanotechnology, psychedelic and information technologies render the experiential distinctions between living systems and machines frequently dubious and often indiscernible. This excited and confused rhetorical membrane between humans and an informational universe nonetheless broadcasts a clear message: humans, in co-evolution with the technical matrices transforming the planet, find themselves in an evolutionary ecology that is as urgent as it is experimental.

Continuing his collaborative work on the “transhuman imperative”, Doyle ( aka mobius) has now completed the trilogy with a scholarly book about archaic and contemporary psychedelic media technologies and the evolution of mind: The Ecodelic Hypothesis: Plants, Rhetoric and the Evolution of The Noösphere, currently in press with University of Washington. Other current projects include a book, Admixtures: Dialogues After Genomics with Anthropologist Mark Shriver. The Admixtures Project has grown The Penn State Center for Altered Consciousness, currently investigating the genetics and phenomenology of legally altered consciousness with the help of a flotation tank.

Doyle directed the Penn State Composition Program from 2004-2006, and serves as Expert, Wetwares and Human/Machine interaction for international organizations and a volunteer to the Penn State Center for Sustainability. More about mobius’ work and teaching can be found by browsing his web site.

Richard speaks with Joanna about language and the ecstasy of creativity, ego-death as a revelatory practice, eco-humility, Timothy Leary, freedom & Imagination…
