SSG003 Poet as Revolutionary and Sacred Whore-With Eve Bradford

In this episode we are joined by one of our most beloved ongoing collaborators, Eve Bradford, culture maker, oracle, and author of one of my favorite books of poetry: Instructions to a Young Magician (from herself).  As a long-time student of shaman and author Martín Prechtel, Eve is often called upon by the extended community to offer counsel and guidance to individuals, couples and groups, and to create and facilitate ceremonies of all kinds, from weddings to rites of passage to memorials. At the heart of the matter is Eve’s innately ecstatic nature, her great love for the web of life, and her hopeful diligence applied to creating a myriad of experiences coaxing others to fall equally in love with the world. In this episode, we explore:

• The overlap in Goddess Myths of Ancient India and Eastern Europe

• Word magic and some specific ways that the words we use to express our experience of who we are either limit or expand our reality

• Subtle dynamics of energy exchange and The poet as both the Revolutionary and the Sacred Whore
