Bernie Taylor – The Hero’s Journey and the Human Race – Part Two

November 26, 2018

Bernie Taylor 4

Bernie Taylor discusses his book Before Orion – Finding the Face of the Hero.

(Stream / download audio at bottom of page)

This is a two part interview. Part one is here.

The myth of the hero’s journey is at the heart of folklore worldwide among the ancients, indigenous peoples past and present, and even in our modern society as metaphors, allegories, archetypes, and symbols in popular culture. Before Orion explores a deeper root for this myth by looking at how hunter-gatherers viewed themselves within the natural and spiritual worlds.

Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us. He addresses a profound elephant in the room by opening up uncharted places in our history, exploring ideas unacceptable to mainstream archaeology and anthropology.

Although we have largely lost our fundamental connections to nature, our past, each other and even ourselves, essentially we are the same as our ancient ancestors. Far from being redundant relics of a bygone age, their stories are vitally important in understanding who we are, where we come from and where we are going.

Gregg Levoy – Vital Signs: The Nature and Nurture of Passion

January 16, 2016

Gregg Levoy

Gregg Levoy discusses his book Vital Signs – The Nature and Nurture of Passion. This exuberant and compelling work explores how you can cultivate not just a specific passion, but passion as a mindset – a stance – that helps bring vitality to all your engagements, from work and relationships to creativity and spiritual life. Vital Signs examines the endless, yet endlessly fruitful, tug-of-war between passion and security in our lives, the wild in us and the tame, our natural selves and our conditioned selves, and shows us how to stay engaged with the world and resist the downward-pulling forces that can drain our aliveness.

Bryan Hubbard – The Untrue Story of You

October 23, 2015

Bryan Hubbard

Bryan Hubbard discusses his book The Untrue Story of You. You are the central player in the drama of your life, and sometimes it all becomes too much and you get angry, depressed, anxious, irritated, or suffer from addictions. And because you’re the central player, you try to do something about these negative behaviour patterns. Maybe you do inner work, or seek therapy or counselling, or even lust after yet more material possessions, in the desperate hope that they will paper over the cracks in your soul. Some attempt to become more ‘spiritual’, to find a guru in a quest to become enlightened. And when you do any or all of these things, everyone else goes along with the idea that you’re the central player who can control or change your behavior. But this is the greatest illusion of all time.

Peter Jones – Wilhelm Reich and Forbidden Science

February 15, 2015

Peter Jones

Peter Jones discusses some of the issues raised in his book Artificers of Fraud. Wilhelm Reich (1897 – 1957) was an Austrian psychoanalyst, a member of the second generation of psychoanalysts after Sigmund Freud, and one of the most radical figures in the history of psychiatry. He was the author of several influential books, most notably Character Analysis (1933) and The Mass Psychology of Fascism (1933). His writing influenced generations of intellectuals and during the 1968 student uprisings in Paris and Berlin, students scrawled his name on walls and threw copies of The Mass Psychology of Fascism at the police.
