Episode 1: "The Journey Begins..."
An Introductory Extended Transmission from The Poet's Dreamingbody
Every day is a journey,
and the journey itself is home.
In this debut episode, I talk about my background, some early dreams and memories, aspects of my journey of creativity and spirituality, and the influence that the Japanese sage-poet Matsuo Bashō has had on my path. I also talk about my late teacher, Darion Kuma Gracen, along with the concepts of “art fathers and mothers,” the dreambody/dreamingbody, and the lineage stream of Wayfaring poets.
