In this week’s episode Sharon Blackie speaks with Joanna about: falling in love with the world; recovering from the disenchantment that is destroying the planet; the myth of human superiority and the emphasis on the transcendental; the sense of recognition of belonging to a place; Celtic mythology, being in service to the land; creating a new folk culture; how to make relevant the ancestral stories in the plece where we live; the Old Woman, creatrix and fierce protector of the land; the challenge of the loathly lady; wisdom and guidance of the old women; retrieving a vivid sense of belonging to the world; finding the answers outside of ourselves.
