A Millennial's Guide to Saving the World

When I launched this podcast a year ago, I knew that eventually, this story would need to be told. Today felt like the right day. I discuss "health" and my journey toward finding it in the most broad and comprehensive way possible. From physical health to emotional well-being to societal and cultural frameworks and the way they all intermingle, my goal with this episode is to create a safe space where we can broaden our understanding of "sickness" and heal together.  Songs featured: "Grillos" by Paco Fernandez & "You Can't Rush Your Healing" by Trevor Hall How to support the show:...

Dylan is a photographer, filmmaker and musician. She also hosts a podcast about sex, feminism and power with her mother (Sonya Lea, who was also on this show) called BITCHCONOCLAST.

A Millennial's Guide to Saving the World

Jason Holley is a psychologist and an astrologer. His approach focuses on the use of mythology, storytelling, art & astro-drama. Jason and I discuss how he uses these techniques in tandem with one another + we explore personality as a process instead of a disorder, discuss the limitations of traditional models of therapy and look at feminine/masculine + guru/disciple psychology through the lens of night/day. In other words, this was by far one of my favorite conversations on the podcast to date.   Jason's book recommendations: The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony by Roberto...
