  • The Human Tribe
  • Listen:
  • I want to wish everyone here in the US a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thanksgiving is in a way a time when our various Tribes gather together. Whether it's blook relatives, or a Tribe by Choice, we travel from whereever we're living to whereever our larger family is - it may be over hundreds of miles, or just across town. But it's a time for us to renew our relationships with those who have been in our lives from the very beginning.

    So, what is a TRIBE? Anthropologists don't really have answers, but they have alot of theories, and of course, lots of papers written about those theories.

    This week, let's take a look at some of those theories, and see if we could come to a better understanding of how humans organized themselves in earlier times, and how some humans organize themselves even today.

    And, are we STILL tribal? Some say Yes, and some say that that may be our saving grace in the long run!

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • Eldering
  • Listen:
  • Eldering" isn't really something you are; it's something you DO. The idea around Eldering is how older people can relate and function in the world. But in order to do that at all, there has to be some understanding of how their society looks at them, and chooses to relate to them.

    So, we're going to look at how we relate to the elderly, both around the world and throughout time.
    And we'll find ways for people to live with respect, and self-respect in todays world.

    Be good. Do well. Enjoy the show!

  • Holy Grail / Holy Cauldron
  • Listen:
  • This week we look at the so-called Holy Grail. What is this thing that people are so enamoured of? Did it even exist? People have been searching for it for hundreds of years, and it seems whenever they decide they can't find it, they create stories about it.

    So, let's travel back the the 12th century, where the myth of the Holy Grail seems to have it's beginnings. And we'll take a look at some of the embellishments that have been attached to it over time.

    There does seem to be a link between the Holy Grail of Christian myth and the Celtic tradition of the Cauldron. We'll get into that, and we'll also listen to a kid's story from Disney called The Black Cauldron.

    Be good. Do well. Enjoy the show!

  • Reincarnation; Where Ya Goin? Where Ya Been?
  • Listen:
  • This week here on The Spiral Dance, the topic is Reincarnation.

    Some believe, some don't. Some say that know if for a fact, that they've experienced their past lives.
    I don't make such claims myself, although I've experienced things that have given me pause for thought.

    So I've got a poem on Reincarnation from the pen of Aleister Crowley. And I've got some info on how why and where the concept of Reincarnation developed.

    We think of Reincarnation as an Eastern philosophy. But it can be found here in the West before the followers of the Abrahamic god decided to dictate reality to us. Nonetheless, I want to pay homage to some Eastern belief systems which have worked th concept out rather well.

    Then we'll come back to the West, in the 19th and 20th centuries when Reincarnation started to retake it's hold in this part of the world.
    And finally, some quotes from famous folk about Reincarnation.
    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
