#101 The Astrological Significance of Generations with Jenny Kellogg show art #101 The Astrological Significance of Generations with Jenny Kellogg

A Millennial's Guide to Saving the World

Jenny joins me on the podcast once again, this time to talk about the astrological significance and underpinning of generations. We speak about every generation from the Baby Boomers through to Gen Z, and give some context for how each can be viewed through the lens of astrology, karma and collective purpose. What does the Hero's Journey look like on a generation scale? What can we define as the collective shadow of a generation? How does each generation fit together thematically and what might we glean from their chronology? We also speak about the most recent, as of yet unnamed generation...

A Millennial's Guide to Saving the World

When I launched this podcast 3 years ago, I would have never been able to predict that this monumental 100th episode would be shared with my Mother. In fact, at the time, we weren’t even speaking to one another. This conversation tracks my own ancestral history from the life of my grandmother, to my mother, to me. We speak about family patterns, trauma, the mother wound, codependency, and the excruciatingly painful two years we spent apart from one another in 2017 & 2018. If you have a Mom, or a daughter, or want to reinvigorate your belief in hope, change and forgiveness, this...

Two-thirds of Kosmic Tonic join me on the podcast this week to discuss all things Venus. We unpack the mythology and multivalent archetype associated with this frequently misunderstood and oversimplified planet.

Tao, Chris and Anya have a three-way... conversation. Sitting in Tao's shipping container gallery in Yucca Valley, the three of us speak about the interwoven relationship between life, death, sex, pleasure, pain and creativity, and how the absence of death can directly correlate to an absence of eroticism. We question the hypocrisies of mainstream environmentalism, and whether individual action can influence collective change. We also speak about disagreement, the purpose of podcasts, and the art of conversation.  Find Tao on and listen to his podcast "Being in the World" on Find...

#96 Everything is Beautiful and Dying: A Solo Episode show art #96 Everything is Beautiful and Dying: A Solo Episode

A Millennial's Guide to Saving the World

In this episode, I talk about how I've been feeling and what I've been thinking about over this past summer. Namely, about the intersection of beauty and death. I speak about how as I get older, a lot of my optimism and my desire to find "purpose" and "meaning" has become supplanted with unavoidable grief, death and sorrow. I question whether believing that everything happens for a reason is really just a manic and delusional avoidance of truth, honesty and sadness. I explore whether pessimism equals complacency, and if we're kidding ourselves by thinking any one of us can make a palpable...
