A Discussion with Craig Chalquist

Today we will be chatting with core faculty Craig Chalquist about the development of Terrapsychology and his ideas on hermeticism and gnosticism as an earth honouring path. We also discuss enchantivism, fantasy and the archetypal world of myth, as well as how Craig approaches the intersection of scholarship, activism and his thoughts on the writing process and imaginal scholarship.
