#70 Jungian Black Holes

Podcast with

Without form, without figure, without resemblance am I;
Vitality of all senses, in everything I am;
Neither attached, nor released am I;
I am Consciousness, I am Bliss, I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

— Adi Shankara, Nirvana Shatakam, Hymns 3–6[66]

In 2023, he launched an online course integrating insights from Joseph Campbell and Ernest Becker.
