yep. if you're hesitating to listen to this one, don't. it's a classic; beautifully written; it reeks of plants and mushrooms and remembrance.

So many of us in western civilization have been robbed of the sense of AWE -- robbed by a simplistic,.incomplete, misleading vacuum of cosmology propounded by scientific materialist reductionism. the result? a titanically pathological war on nature and, for the human, a deadening of the soul.

we need to.be activated again, to awaken to the truth of what we are, for the sake of all life on this miraculous planet.

This book / lecture series is a step in the right direction. jump in and reclaim the scientific language for the blooming of the whole!

we need more stories like this in our troubled times; more stories with soul and a feeling for the overstory ... of which we are desperate, confused, holy threads

every white person needs to take this in. I'm ashamed it took me this long to begin to educate myself.

this was a good way to get into some key ideas presented by Hillman, to help you decide if he is "of your tree" or not. really enjoyable for the most part, and important ideas discussed, particularly the re-imagining of therapy to include eccentricity, beauty and a recognition that the problems we face cannot be personalised away (that is we must meet the world, get political, realise we are in community always).

this is essential material that every man should take in and metabolize. my only complaint with this is that it's way too short. I will need to find something more substantial. a good starting place, but a starting place only.

shame is such an important thing to work with, I cannot express this strongly enough, in order to belong to the world again we must meet our shame (some of which is conditioned and a lot of which is inherited). this talk is a punchy reminder. the poetry and story of the frog bride touched me deeply.
