Sophie Strand - Where the World Gets In

About this Episode

I’m back with another dose of the enchanting Sophie Strand. Listen in as we dance in the magic of storytelling, ecology, revelation, and contemplation.

Sophie is someone who understands the power of myth-making and storytelling. She honed her abilities when she learned she had a life-threatening disease and began to write as if her life depended on it. What she came to realize is that all of our lives depend on it. Unless we generate new myths to live into, we will surely stay fast asleep in the culture of make-believe, where we consume everything without implication or consequence.

In this episode, Sophie and I continue where we left off. We meander into the wilderness where we make new connections, access revelations, and enchantment abounds- Join us! You won’t be bored!

  • Why should we compost old stories?
  • How can we understand disability, illness, and PTSD as a portal into greater ecological sensitivity?
  • What is ecological storytelling, and how can we begin to weave more awareness into our stories and our lives?
  • How does the story of Rabbi Yeshua teach us about ecological storytelling?
  • How can we become more ecologically embodied?
  • What does myth have to teach us about our specific locales?
