MPP103 Soul Medicine: Healing Through Dreams, Visions & Pilgrimage with Edward Tick PhD

Ep. 103
On this episode, it’s my great pleasure to welcome back psychotherapist, educator and author Edward Tick to talk about his latest book Soul Medicine: Healing Through Dream Incubation, Visions, Oracles and Pilgrimage. If you’re interested in hearing more about Ed’s personal journey, I recommend also checking out episode 80 of the podcast.For many decades, Ed has devoted himself to studying and practicing depth psychology and the ancient Greek healing arts, and has led pilgrimages to Greece and Vietnam as a guide for those seeking a form of holistic healing beyond the limits of what modern medicine and psychology can offer.In his new book, Ed delves deeply into the philosophical, mythological and cultural origins of modern medicine and psychology in an attempt to recover their archetypal roots. Drawing on both ancient wisdom and modern depth psychology as well as stories of healings from his more than 25 years of guiding Vietnam veterans and others on pilgrimages, Soul Medicine offers a vision of how we can all use ancient healing philosophies and practices to achieve holistic healing today.As I mentioned in the intro to the last episode, I’m hoping to have more conversations with less well-known folks who have found soul recovery and healing through the creative arts.

MPP102 Stonework as Soulwork: Recovery, Apprenticeship & Healing with Sean Auld

Ep. 102
On this episode I speak with Sean Alec Auld from Newcastle-Upon-Tyne about how his apprenticeship as a stone worker was integral to his recovery from substance abuse and how it had the unexpected side-effect of connecting him to soul, land and the ancient folklore of his Anglo Saxon ancestors.Sean's Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/the.name.of.stone Sean’s story is a perfect example of what I mean when I talk about how your medicine path is your own unique process of soul recovery, healing and growth. It’s a path that is laid out just for you, and if we listen to the prompts and urgings from our guiding spirit or daimon, it will lead us on our journey toward wholeness and reveal to us what is the medicine we have to offer the world.It was a lovely chat and I hope that it inspires and encourages you to follow your medicine path. I’d like to have more conversations with regular folks like Sean who may not be well known outside their local community. If you know someone who has an inspiring story to tell, feel free to reach out to me on Instagram @revealingthesoul or send an email to hello@brianjames.ca+++Join the conversation by becoming a member of the Medicine Path online community and school of soul studies: http://patreon.com/medicinepath1-on-1 Soul Recovery resources and coaching with Brian James: http://medicinepath.meSound collage: "Invocation" by Brian James+++Donate to support this work!Bitcoin: 18GN22NsbzA8cXdioabNPWfmX6t6Yj7gcjPayPal: http://PayPal.me/medicinepathyoga

MPP101 Hagitude with Sharon Blackie & Debbie Stapleton

Ep. 101
Writer, teacher and psychologist Dr. Sharon Blackie talks with guest host Debbie Stapleton about her latest book Hagitude: Reimagining the Second Half of Life.Deftly interweaving myth, psychology and memoir, Sharon Blackie argues that menopause ushers in a rich and vibrant new phase of life, and explores the many different ways in which women can flourish during what is so often portrayed as a time of decline.Hagitude unearths the stories of the little-known but powerful elder women in European myth and folklore, inspiring readers to imagine that the last decades of our lives might be the most dynamic of all. This moving and uplifting book will inspire a new generation of female elders: women who have reclaimed their Inner Hag, matured into their own unique brand of hagitude and who are ready to pass down their deep feminine wisdom for the benefit of the wider Earth community.+++Sharon Blackie, PhD, is an award-winning writer of fiction and nonfiction and a psychologist who has specialized in neuroscience, narrative, mythology, and Celtic studies. Her work has been published extensively in professional journals and consumer media, and she offers workshops and seminars worldwide and online. She lives in Wales, UK. https://sharonblackie.netDebra Stapleton is a Canadian artist, singer, herbalist, and twice-certified astrologer.
