S2 E 11 | Pisces Season: Wild Poetics
The last week of Pisces season; the last week of Winter.
In this episode Cory details the last week of Pisces season with its remarkable emphasis on Mercury and Neptune, and suggests that one of the best ways to be in relationship with the current quality of time is to fictionalize, poeticize, and imagine.
This episode’s featured guest is poet & founder of The Poetry Barn, Lissa Kiernan. They talk about the importance of poetry, Lissa's new book, and the transmutation of intense feelings. The Poetry Barn is hosting a book launch and open mic where Cory will be reading poems from her new chapbook. Event will be held Sunday, March 19th at 2pm.
