#174 Memorial Day Musings with the Words of Marion Woodman

Hello and Happy Memorial Day! Today I spend some time honoring those who’ve served and set the stage for thinking of a better way of resolving conflict. First part is really stepping into the Chrysalis so that we can re-emerge as something new, a society with a greater balance between the feminine and the masculine, but first I offer some thoughts on the patriarchal nature of war and the military including an analysis of the language used that is unsurprisingly phallic in nature. In honor of the Chrysalis and the feminine, I read from Marion Woodman’s The Pregnant Virgin and also little snippets from Dancing in the Flames. I’d love to hear your thoughts about all of this!

Today’s show was engineered by Ian Seda of Radio Kingston.

#157 Edie Pijpers “We Are the Ones”

Edie Pijpers is a self-taught artist who picked up her first guitar at 20 in L.A. to learn a couple of chords so she could start expressing and writing. She learned to record and produce her own music and the year 2020 gave rise to a brand new album We Are The Ones. Edie is also a painter who started painting in her late twenties in Nashville which led her to creating and publishing several children’s books. She also plays around with animation, see her short film “Day” and music videos. Her process of painting as with music is about flow. Of not believing that mistakes exist. Any move is part of the whole and the creation. It requires a great amount of trust. And diligent work/practice! 

Today we talk about her start in music and how it has progressed over the years to her most recent album, “We Are the Ones.” We listen to several songs, talk about the meanings of them which takes us into conversations about the shadow, our selves, presence and intention. Of course we also talk about her whimsical art, being in the flow, meditating and self care.

From We Are the Ones, we listen to:

“In the Shadows,” “We Are the Ones,” “Nature Knows,” “Poets of the New World”

Today’s show was engineered by Nick Panken of Freedom Highway on Radio Kingston.
