#6 New Gods at the End of the World

Podcast with ,

Today we’re super excited to share an organic and wild conversation between two poets, writers, philosophers and theobiologians (that’s Bayo’s term) Bayo Akomalofe and Sophie Strand.

This conversation was hosted by Science and Nonduality’s Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo. To hear the full conversation with Q&A from the live webinar you can view it here.

Also if you want to go deeper with Bayo and Sophie as well as Tyson Yunkaporta and Vanessa Andreotti and if you’re listening to this before the workshop starts on Oct 19 2022, please go to the website science and nonduality.com and consider registering for their three-day workshop.

This workshop is entitled The Wandering, Winding Way of the Wound and it’s a chance to explore our shared global trauma as the modern grammar of loss.

Today’s discourse between Bayo and Sophie is a wild exploration of words, ideas, memes, biology, and ecology. Their dialog touches and weaves into so many territories.
