In this episode I am joined by the distinguished esoteric scholar Tony Mierzwicki for a discussion about exorcism in the ancient world. Our exploration leads to a brainstorming session on the potential to modernize and standardize demonology with clinical laboratory experimentation.

I wish I would have been introduced to these practical instructions much sooner in life, I would have avoided many situations that left me vulnerable to demonic attack.

In this episode I’m joined by MFP, my lead benefactress in my not-for-profit Christian feminist porn production initiative. She holds supportive space for me to tell a heart and gut wrenching story of my abuse and victimization as a survivor, former sex worker, and adult performer. We then explore a long chain of synchronicities leading to our new dharmic path as spiritual pornographers in service to healing the Earth and resurrecting the divine feminine.
This episode contains a true love story dialog between myself and a beloved dakini. It documents excerpts from our first several weeks of cyber courtship and our mutual exploration of tantra, shamanism, and exorcism.
There are more chapters in this true story that will be published later, and more chapters that have yet to be written.
With help, our visions will come true and we’ll be properly funded to investigate “sex files” world wide.
In this episode I’m discussing a natural history of demons with Laura Marjorie Miller. Together we compare notes on our experiential and theoretical knowledge of demons as misunderstood friends, and misdiagnosed foes. We synthesize ecological and esoteric epistemologies and attempt to lay a foundation for a modern medical and psycho-therapeutic approach to these diverse and elusive creatures.

This podcast is a lab report documenting an experimental Goddess Kali worship ritual conducted in January 2014. It was co-designed and advised on by clinical sexologists, tantrikas, shamans, and spirit guides to help me overcome PTSD symptoms resulting from sexual trauma in my adolescence.
Beyond my personal sexual healing, the objective was to collect data that would help build an explanatory model of the “ecology of the soul”.
Awaken the Kali Within
KALI- The Goddess of self Empowerment, of time, change, death/rebirth, fierce rage, annihilator of evil forces, the redeemer of the universe as well as the benevolent mother goddess……
Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”
― Arundhati Roy, War Talk
The time to come into your authentic power as an individual with personal dreams and goals as well as your vision to change the world and live your deepest soul purpose to serve the universe, is not somewhere in the future, it is in the here and NOW.
YES, IT IS TIME TO AWAKEN THE KALI WITHIN
It is time:
– to not just worship the idol, but become HER
– to stop complaining about whats going on in the world; to stop walking around the earth feeling so little, so limited, so disempowered and helpless when we have this dormant forces of raw limitless inner power in the form of Kali residing within each of us
– to stand up for your own being, for your own body, mind and soul that are being polluted, manipulated, abused and devoured by corrupt agencies of power as well as meeting the inner shadow
– to tap into that rage, that has been repressed into our unconscious, because that rage is going to be the key/the doorway to your Divine Infinite untamed inner power and wisdom!
-to stand up and scream and use the power of our voices to prevent our Mother earth from being further abused and polluted
Imagine every so-called ‘ordinary’ person walking the face of the earth becoming a true embodiment of KALI,
Can a handful of corrupt people continue to dominate these empowered embodiments of THE FIERCE GODDESS WITHIN?
WE WILL BE INVOKING THE GODDESS KALI AND LEARNING ABOUT HER THROUGH
VOICE/ SACRED CHANTS
AND MEDITATION/YOGIC BREATHWORK PRACTICES
TO BECOME HER, EMBODY HER!!!
