In Episode 102 Pro – Elementals of Style, we explore the role of the elements in religious and philosophical traditions from all over the world. From the periodic table of modern science to the three Cauldrons of Poesy in Celtic tradition, the four classic elements of ancient Greece and the innovative 8-circuit model — understanding how we organize the world around us can give us a glimpse into the complexity and subtlety of our own inner worlds. How can we craft a personal approach to the elements that gives us a useful map for the spiritual life and helps us reconnect with the natural world around us? We talk about how others have answered that question and share some of our own insights as well.
Enjoy a sneak peek of our new podcast, Faith, Fern & Compass, as we explore nature spirituality in the digital age in Preseason Episode 1 – The Stories We Live. Tonight, we talk about a new approach to the four elements, we share a glimpse into the connection between ecopsychology and global warming, we share some creative ways to celebrate National Poetry Month, and we delve into the secret lives of bees and how understanding our buzzing friends can help us unlock the mysteries of the human brain and maybe even modern politics! We also have a special treat to wrap up the show — so be sure to stick around.
