#11_The Future is Behind Us_Get Your Dragons On_with Shonagh Home

00:0000:00

If you feel like you've been dumped out of the boat into some class 3 rapids, you are not alone. The practice is to put yourself into position to enjoy the ride. In this class 3 rapid of a conversation, Shamanic therapist Shonagh Home shows you how to manifest your own badass protection against those who are threatened by your light, and manifests for me - my very own fabulous spiritual manager, Lance, who loves to shop, pack, and get me free upgrades on airlines. Sarah wonders if - in the same way we couldn't have imagined how the eclipse would make us feel, could a coup just feel like an oozing normalization of bad behavior? 

The Earth has joined in the class action crazy, and there's never been a worse time to be all aw shucks about your gifts. This is IT. Call your dragons and limber up for the black humor Olympics.  Time to go big AND go home.

#8_Not Your Mother’s Synchronicity

00:0000:00

For the Mayans, Native Americans, and Aborigines, synchronicity was a food group. They were beyond mindful of the moments. They understood that the combination of an internal readiness to act, or to be moved to a richer place - and an external sign ( what Jung dubbed Synchronicity,) and the resulting breakthrough in consciousness and explosion of deep meaning infused their lives with direction and made their days more meaningful, richer, and freer.  The Holy Web has got our back.  Even as the national smoke and mirrors show swings into cartoon head shaking form, In this IV drip of Ancient Wisdom with Shonagh Home, Shamanic Therapist, Author, and poet, we explore packing our go bag for crazy town with ancient, ancestral and flat-out practical mindsets, rituals, and regimens to offset the national crazy.  July is in the rear view mirror.  Whether you went for it, or it went for you -  today we reset for August and remember how to unhook from broken things, from the narrative meth lab in the sky - and how tune into the time of Late Summer like our Grandparent's and their parents did.  Practice looking up from the screens and into the faces of our children and friends, and elders.  Let's  fill ourselves up to the brim with as much good food, good friends, laughter, and the beauty of late summer as possible in preparation for a Fall to remember.

 

Welcome to the backstage pass that is the clown car pileup of America. 

We've got this.

#4_The Willie Wonka of Table Top Gaming Packs his Go Bag_Part 1 of 2

00:0000:00

The ability to lean into the unknown and make it your home is at the heart of the first of two episodes wtih Andy "Roo" Forrest, my first boss out of college, vocalist for the underground Bay Area improv band, "Chained Down Cheese," and co-founder of the hottest board game design company on the planet.

Andy gets into how being the descendant of Holocaust Survivors is informing how he packs his GO BAG for Crazy Town (super charged Winnebago's, Guns, Gold in the walls of his Grandfather's booby-trapped Palo Alto Home,) and how to stay out of the national crazy by focusing on doing good work. We get into why practicing NEGATIVE CAPABILITY in uncertain times feels right right about now, and why the J curve is a good jumping off point for a musical about Overpopulation and consumption. 

Also, ignore it when I say, "I hate Bob Dylan." I just find his son, Jacob, way more listenable. 

The Wall Street Journal called the  interactive playpen/nightclub ENTROS that Andy and his partner, Stephen Brown founded in Seattle in the 90's: "The Future of Entertainment." Like most mid 90's prognostications, they were totally wrong, but unless you were across town discovering Nirvana, it was the most fun you could have with your clothes on in those days. Andy is a songwriter, a taiji practitioner, and a serial entrepreneur. He was all of 23 when he hatched Pearl's Oyster Bar in his home town.  Now, Forrest Pruzan Creative, the board game design company he started with Alan Pruzan spawns 50 games a year, invented most of the early Cranium games, and is responsible for many of the games on the shelves at Target, Wal-Mart, and your favorite game store. 

I think this conversation, above all, will remind you about those friends that you have in your life that maybe you don’t see very often, but when you do – it’s a soul connection of love and respect run through a $h!t flipping machine nestled in a holy web.*
