The Crossroads of the Unexpected

an interview with Michael Garfield

michael_garfieldIn this week’s episode Michael Garfied and Joanna in an exquisite conversation about paradox, intensity, casuality and the art of fun.

 

Paleontologist turned performance philosopher, Michael Garfield‘s ecodelic explorations map the evolutionary landscape and our place in it. A contributor to Reality Sandwich & H+ Magazine, a speaker at Burning Man and innumerable other festivals events, and an internet video evangelist for planetary civilization, Michael walks the tightrope between the New Age and the Academe with grace and jazzy sophistication – reminding us that everything is equally art, science, and spiritual practice. De facto cyber-troubadour at the 2010 and 2012 MAPS conferences, he currently writes on human-technology co-evolution and tours the United States marrying acoustic-electronic music, fractal art, and public speaking into mind-opening transmedia performances.

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.

Singing Into Freedom

an interview with Rachel Bagby

Rachel BagbyIn this week’s interview, Joanna speaks with Rachel Bagby. She works all over the world with thousands of people devoted to bringing their voices to life. Rachel talks with us about the double gift of relationship we can have with the Earth and all our relations. How we can re-plant ourselves; retrieving the blessing of our voice; the renewing, freeing energy of air and the nourishing hum of aliveness. She also introduces us to a simple, deep practice of singing with Nature and shares with us a personal experience which gave birth to a special song.
Please post any questions or comments you have about the interview on our facebook page where we look forward to hearing from you.

If Rachel were to create a résumé, it would be scrawled on a piece of sheet music with a swooping treble clef next to her name: Rachel Bagby, J.D. It would include a number of positions, titles & roles: Graduate of Stanford Law School, poetic innovator & creator of Dekaaz Facilitation™, international speaker & author of Divine Daughters: Liberating the Power and Passion of Women’s Voices. Award-winning composer, social artist, and Founder of Singing Farm, she was a soprano in Bobby McFerrin’s original international touring ensemble, Voicestra.
Rachel is also a daughter of the earth and herbalist; a sonorous medicine woman healed by a mountain. She served on the founding board of Green for All, has spoken regularly at Bioneers, and founded an initiative called Choral Earth to inspire everyone to sing with and for the earth. Whether immersed in the harmonic joy of blessing leaders’ voices or honing the powers of a community into ten perfect syllables, the thread of commonality is the same: Rachel coaches individuals and communities to turn experiences into WISDOM & to cultivate our VOICES into instruments of change.

an interview with Deborah Koff Chapin & Michael Dunning

The Fairy & Human Relations Congress is an annual event in the North Central Cascades in Washington State, dedicated to promoting communication and co-creation with the Intelligence of Nature.
www.fairycongress.com

Matthew Sherrill was our special correspondant at the 2012 Fairy & Human Relations Congress. Matthew is a transpersonal spiritual guide and Energy healer.

Deborah Koff-Chapin is an artist, vocalist, author, teacher, independent publisher. She is the originator of the process of Touch Drawing and the author of “Drawing Out Your Soul” and “The Touch Drawing Facilitator Workbook”. She has produced multi-media educational media including a video, audio CD’s and Touch Drawing materials kits. Each summer since 1997, she has convened the Annual Touch Drawing Gathering, which attracts an international community of Touch Drawing practitioners and facilitators. Deborah lives with her husband, architect Ross Chapin, on an island in Puget Sound. Together they co-founded a multi-modal sacred arts circle, which has been ongoing since its inception in 1983.

http://www.touchdrawing.com/

Deborah speaks with Matthew about the imaginal journey with touchdrawing; bridging the past and the future through art; and Gaian inspiration of this art approach…

Michael Dunning was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He experienced a ten-year period of healing and a shamanic initiation through Nature, that took place under the vast enclosure of a yew tree. Michael believes that the yew tree was once regarded by the indigenous and pre-Celtic shaman-healers (Druids) as a great source of occult knowledge holding the keys to an an ancient and embryonic language of healing and rejuvenation. Michael teaches in US and UK. In 2009 he founded the Sacred Yew Institute. The institute offers a two-year professional training in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy as well as workshops and lectures on the history of the yew tree, Yewshamanism and Occult -Embryology. In 2012 Michael will be introducing The Essence of the Five Trees Teachings. These teachings will bring all the elements of his work with the yew and the Elemental beings in Scotland together for the first time.

www.yewshamanism.com

Michael speaks with Matthew about his initiatic experience with the yew tree; “the embryonic Tree of Life;” filogenetic recapitulation; “the mother of all trees;” and “the chambers of the unborn”…

The Pattern That Connects

an interview with Nora Bateson

Nora speaks with Joanna about the process of making the film , the concept of beauty for Gregory Bateson, story as a co-evolving relationship, art and beauty as ways of intimacy with Nature, the perception of life as a “dynamic web of interrelationships”, paradox, play, double bind, the ecological imperative of changing our way of thinking about the world…
