The Matristic Culture of Pre-historic Europe

with Mary Mackey, Ph.D.

Program Number: 3607

In her prequel to the Earthsong series of novels that take place in Neolithic times, Mary Mackey envisions when the matristic and patriarchal cultures clashed.

Are We Living in a Video Game?

with Rizwan Virk

Program Number: 3793

Are we living in a material universe or a simulated one? Are we living in a massive, multiplayer, online, role-playing game where our deeds and quests are being kept track of in the “cloud” like an angel recording our lives? If so, who is running the game? And what is the connection between computer science, video game physics, and the great spiritual traditions?

Airing October 18 - October 24

For The Love Of Poetry And Sacred Texts

with Willis Barnstone

Program Number: 3535

If we are to grasp Willis Barnstone’s greatest contribution to culture over the course of his 87 years, we can focus on his role first and foremost as a poet – a lover of words, both his own and those of others, and on what he believes are sacred words from our earliest written records down to present day mystics and poets.

Jane Hirshfield
Airing October 25 - October 31

Poetry: An Embodied Experience

with Jane Hirshfield

Program Number: 3796

Poetry, at its best, takes us beyond our analytical minds and lands us in an embodied experience. It helps us meet the despair which inevitably rises up in the darkest moments. Poetry can cut windows and doors in your despair and give you a way to walk back into the world with others.
