In this week’s episode, Stuart Sovatsky speaks with Joanna about: the entheogenic chemistries from the seed of life; the now aiming into the future: the seed-within-seed-within-seed… in all of us; amrita and DNA: the mysterious honey of life; a universe that creates loving relationships; the endless path of longing; pineal puberty at the core of spiritual traditions; towards a more complete map of human maturation; devotional intimacy; the primal religions and the awe before the mystery of life; enlightening inebriation of a soul-centered, embodied culture; the world is a big family; retrieving a worshipful mode in eroticism and lifelong relationships; yoga poses as full-bodied tumescences; the common ecstatic ground of all spiritualities.
