#106 Rebuilding Tribe and Tribal Mythologies for the Modern World with Timo Killian

Timo and I have too many things in common to list. From an obsession with Tony Kushner’s Angels in America, to the importance of recognizing and building personal mythologies, to neo-tribalism and the importance of community, we spent two months in Antigua, Guatemala philosophizing late into the night about all our favorite subjects. Timo was raised in Mormonism and had a successful career in political consulting before focusing on a project around a return to tribal living, where small groups of people live in committed community that gives equal weight to both the individual and the community. If you’re interested in spirituality, mythology, tribe, community and belonging, this episode is not to missed.

Whitney Will is a psychological astrologer and writer. She has a B.A. in the History of Math and completed her M.A. in Counseling Psychology with a focus on Jungian and Archetypal Studies at Pacifica. Whitney returns to the podcast, this time to chat with me about planetary retrogrades. We discuss what’s really happening in the sky when a planet “goes retrograde”, dispel false narratives about what retrogrades mean and delve into the archetype and mythology behind Mercury, Mars and Venus. We also expand on what it means to be born during a planetary retrograde and to have a retrograde planet in your natal chart. Lastly, we discuss our upcoming course “Retrograde with Intention” where we will be helping participants track the upcoming Venus retrograde in Capricorn through their charts and creating community and ritual around the transit, honoring Venus the best way we know how.

Chris is a Spiritual Mentor and Master Energy Worker. He has extensive education in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Medical QiGong, Reiki, Pranic Healing, & Sexual Alchemy. We discuss our shared experience of identifying as spiritual and yet feeling alienated by most spiritual communities and unpack why that is. We also do a deep dive into Feminine and Masculine Polarity, how they exist within each of our us and how we enact this energy balance and exchange within relationships. We talk about the physical and psychological effects of trying to neutralize and deny the natural flow of energy in our bodies, and how when yin & yang are in disharmony, true vitality and health can never be fully established. We also speak about the ways both men and women can step up to the plate support each other in this process.
