Episode description and synopsis
In this episode, my first back for this year, Ash and I dive further into the waters we began wading into in our previous episode. Exploring the intersection of queer ways of being, masculinity, and the mythopoetic orientation, we build on this inquiry based on reflections for our last 5 months of circling with men across many generations.
What does the mythopoetic orientation afford us as we look to restore, and restory ourselves-in-the-world?
How do we relate to ‘masculinity,’ ‘femininity’ and all things between (and beyond) through this lens?
Can we move beyond simply ‘who we love,’ towards orientations of ‘how we love,’ maybe as the great myths were pointing us toward?
We explore the nuances of archetype, identity, and morality as we dance between the self and soul, crafting ourselves into a more enriched and generous expression of wholeness.
