In this weeks show Paul and Davyd are full of the joys of Spring. They dive into the history and culture of Imbolc and what it means to them as they traverse the medicine wheel of the year through their Druidic and animistic understandings of nature and reality. Paul brings forth the energies of St Brigid and contemplates what the rituals around this time of year mean to us and how we can work with the energies of Mother Nature as she once again springs forth with that energy of rebirth. Davyd builds on this theme by bringing in the cleansing plants of Spring and what this means to us energetically in our orientation of our lives and the year ahead, and how we can truly start to live from the Delphic maxim of ‘Know Thyself’
The beautiful Primrose makes a welcome appearance too in this weeks twanging of the web.
