A love poem with a playful title that sounds like an ad from a travel agent unfolds into a poem about choosing to stay at home. Imtiaz Dharker's husband died in the years between this poem's setting and its publishing. The poem, too, moves from long lines across the page into shorter and shorter lines. In sensuality, locality, intimacy, and simplicity, this poem is all about the man she loved, and moves from noise to focus: “You Are / Here” its final lines assert.Imtiaz Dharker is a poet, artist and video film-maker.

Take your awakening to the next level and get ready for a mind blowing journey of red pills as we sit down with Filmmaker, Media Host, Author, Actor, Poet, Speaker, and above all, truth-seeker and spiritual activist Sean Stone. Sean Christopher Ali Stone began his spiritual quest at 10 years old, when his father took him to Tibet, Nepal and India, to illuminate the stark contrast between those worlds, and Hollywood, where he had been a child-actor in Oliver Stone films like JFK, The Doors and Natural Born Killers. Sean took summer jobs for Jim Brown's Amer-I-Can program and Save the Children while still in high school, then studied American History at Princeton University, and Oxford, before writing his Senior Thesis on the modern history of the New World Order, now available from TrineDay and Amazon. Sean began his own filmmaking career by apprenticing under his father on Alexander, shooting the behind-the-scenes documentary Fight Against Time. On the film W., Sean worked as an Editorial Consultant, and on the TV series The Untold History of the United States, as an Associate Editor. Sean Stone starred in and directed his first feature film Greystone Park in 2012, based on his real-life paranormal experiences in a haunted mental hospital. In 2020, he published the cosmic fairy tale, Desiderata by Ali, now available from Blackstone and Audible. His most recent release is the poetry book The Ephemeral Shades of Time. Sean is a graduate of the Baron Brown Studio and has starred in multiple features including Night Walk, Union Bound, and Fury of the Fist and the Golden Fleece, which he also wrote. He has directed the documentaries A Century of War, Hollywood, D.C. and MetaHuman with Deepak Chopra. His short films include Singularity, a dystopian warning about a plague that leads to a totalitarian surveillance state, as well as the short film Anaarkali with Bollywood star Javed Jaffrey, adapted from the fairy tale of a ‘kept woman' seeking her independence in modern Mumbai. Sean has hosted the reality show Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, the interview program Buzzsaw, formerly on Gaia TV, and the RT news show Watching the Hawks.Sean's unique perspective from his life's work and journey, helps to connect the dots for all truth-seekers in his mind-blowing new series "Best Kept Secret". In this episode, we go back to #Homaha, home of the Oracle; Mr. Buffett himself and talk about the Franklin Scandal, the NWO, Deep State, The WEF and the IoT, (basically all your favorite 3 letter organizations) the medical system and sterilization, the Rockefellers, Freemasons and so much more. There was so much more we could have talked about, but it's better off that you watch his series for yourself. DO take note of the extra info Sean includes in the series "Best Kept Secret" to further research for yourself. Tune in and unfuckyourself Best Kept SecretHuman trafficking, pedophilia, 'Satanic' politics... The Jeffrey Epstein scandal was the tip of the iceberg as Sean Stone, the former host of Buzzsaw, lays out the hidden agenda of the dark elite in this six-part documentary series. In this 'red pill' journey, Stone explores famous cases like the Franklin Scandal, MK-Ultra and Monarch programming, the Jon Benet Ramsey murder and even the Son of Sam case, to connect the dots of a dangerous ideology, now driving the philosophy of a 'transhumanist' idea - to remake the human being. As more and more people awaken to this hidden agenda, the more rapidly we can take our power back. The full series is now on Ickonic.com , 107daily.com and Vimeo on Demand
Over-worked or over-entertained? Our humanity gives us the joint gifts of both activity and passivity. We act and we are acted upon. But how do we balance and mediate these states? How do we cultivate long practices and habits that help us to inhabit the space between activity and passivity, bringing them together in a beautiful agency?Poet and linguist Alysia Harris joins Matt Croasmun for a discussion of that space between active and passive in human life—bringing the concepts of wonder, awareness/attention, patient receptivity to the natural world and to God, bearing witness to the autonomy and action of the other, and how she cultivates and meditates on these things in her own life.Show NotesNorman Wirzba, This Sacred Life: Humanity's Place in a Wounded WorldActive life vs passive lifeIntermediate category between activity and passivity: attentive awarenessActive receptivity and bearing witnessHuman beings enacting and reactingWitness as perception and responseCarl Sagan, Robin Kimmerer, Timothy WilburnWonder as a mediating emotion between active and passive"I'm not the entire system."Granting autonomy to a natural systemMaking the right impact through granting the sovereignty of the otherAdam and Eve as gardeners—beauty vs productivityGenesis: "Avad and Shamar"—Till and Keep, Serve and ProtectRestrain, observe, attend, and magnify"Me and God"Capitalism, scarcity mentality, and "enough"Ping-ponging between over-worked and over-entertainment—deficient visions of activity and deficient visions of passivityMark 4: Parable of the Sower.

Farid Matuk's poetry, essays, and translations from Spanish appear in a wide range of publications and anthologies. He is the author of the poetry collection, This Isa Nice Neighborhood (Letter Machine), several chapbooks including My Daughter La Chola (Ahsahta), and The Real Horse (2018). He teaches in the MFA program at University of Arizona, where he is poetry editor for Fence, and serves on the editorial board for the book series Research in Creative Writing at Bloomsbury. In this episode, we talk about Matuk's newest collection of poetry, The Real Horse, and his intention behind not using punctuation throughout the book. Matuk passes on life-changing writing advice that he received about filling the negative space of a page and writing into the “weaving of self and other that's always around us.” During his time as a professor at the University of Arizona, he was able to publish his poetry with the university press there. That's also where he experienced, for the first time, the helpful process of the blind peer review. As we spoke about Matuk's work at Fence, the phrase “mutual entanglement” came up to describe the work being done there. Matuk leaves us with the question, “Which phrases and ways of naming the world that feel really powerful today will end up with quotation marks around them?”Honorable Mentions:University of Arizona PressFenceFence founder and editor, Rebecca WolffVisual Artist, Nancy Friedemann-Sanchez and her paintings of lace.Poet, Jorie GrahamPoet, John Ashbery

“For many people, they feel I give them permission to tell their truth.” Poet, photographer, and artist Alexis Rhone Fancher returns to In the Balance to discuss her unapologetic and exquisitely done poetry. She tells us that her work stems from two different perspectives of the life force: eroticism and grief, evoking images and experiences from true life, a way of “trying to figure things out and laying it out on the page.” She and Susan discuss how to be creative while in quarantine, why writing erotica is not the same as writing pornography, and why we all should read poetry.

The beast of fraud has breached. And Virgil's got some negotiating to do. So he sends Dante the pilgrim alone along the edge of the cliff to see the sinners sitting "over there." Wait! Classical poetry has to convince fraud to do something? How? And why does classical poetry suddenly tell the "modern" pilgrim to walk on by himself? And how come we can't hear those negotiations between Virgil and fraud? Join me, Mark Scarbrough, as we look at this strange passage in what's often seen as a mere "waiting room" of a canto, a transitional space between the circles of hell, but which might well be more filled with meaning than so many have allowed it in the past. Here are the segments of this podcast episode of WALKING WITH DANTE: [01:12] My English translation of the passage: INFERNO, Canto XVII, Lines 28 - 45. If you want to read along, you can find this translation on my website, markscarbrough.com. [02:29] Virgil and the pilgrim move on down, but do they turn to the right? I think so, but many big-time Dantistas think not. What would that right turn mean? [06:21] They take ten steps. Ten? Is that symbolic? Or does it tell us something about the growing sense of the poem's technique? [08:32] Lie--run--sit: the three positions of those in the third rung of the circle of violent, those violent against God. Those sitting are on the edge of violence, right at the lip of fraud--because their sin is a piece of both. [10:55] Virgil's conversation with the beast of fraud is dropped from the text. What's up with that? [13:37] Dante the pilgrim goes it alone along the edge. Surely, given all that's happened, there's a thematic value in this moment when our pilgrim sets out by himself to see some sinners. Support this podcast

Host, Adam Sommer, is joined by Steven Reigns, a poet & author to discuss Steven's latest project "A Quilt For David" - a sincere attempt to tell the full story surrounding David Acer, a dentist in Florida accused of infecting his patients with HIV in the early 1990's, the first allegation coming while David lay dying of his own AIDS related illness. As a gay man at the time, David's illness made him an obvious target for blame. David didn't get a chance to complete his own defense, to tell his own story. Steven's decade of work attempts to do just that.

Writer and poet Rachel Hunt Steenblik joins Sara and Jess from the other side of the globe to discuss her journey seeking the feminine divine. Rachel relates her experience doing research for the BYU Studies article "A Mother There: A Survey of Historical Teachings about Mother in Heaven". She describes how she became a poet and came to write the books Mother's Milk: Poems in search of Heavenly Mother and I Gave Her a Name, how she managed to write in the midst of raising tiny children, and what her hopes for the continued unveiling of the divine Mother look like. The introduction of Mother's Milk articulates her desire for all of us to add our voices, stating, "These are the poems that I could write with my questions, my hurt, my hope, and my reaching. Others could write other poems with theirs. I hope that they will. We need them all." Rachel's books can be purchased at https://qnoor.com/collections/books-and-art. She is on Twitter as @rachelsteenblik and Instagram as @rachelelizahunt. Podcast co-host Sara is on Instagram as @my.mother.is.the.queen, and Jess can be found at @her.scriptures. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/inherimage/support

Poet, artist and bestselling author Jackie Hill Perry is our guest on Chris Fabry Live. She’s been thinking a lot lately about the holiness of God and how it can help us trust Him more. She says our struggle with trusting Him fully can be traced to a misunderstanding of His holiness. “Holier Than Thou” is the topic coming up on Chris Fabry Live.
In this episode, Thormod Kolbrun's-Poet sets out to avenge his sworn brother Thorgeir. But Thormod's in no hurry. First, he stops in Norway to bond with King Olaf. Then he travels to Greenland with a mysterious man called Gest to track down Thorgrim the Troll, one of Thorgeir's killers. Along the way, Thormod gets distracted by an attractive woman and things get a little messy. Eventually things get back on track and Thormod gets down to business in a most fantastic way. This one may start a little slow but it finishes really strong with a dramatic fight on a cliff and one of the more hilarious poems we've seen since Egil's Saga. You won't want to miss it. For the runesack, we share a comment about angelica (wild celery) and its role in the life of King Olaf Tryggvason (not the same King Olaf from The Saga of the Sworn Brothers). We also respond to a question from Sam about the recent film adaptation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Thanks to @skarphedin_illustrator on Instagram for capturing the final scene of this episode so brilliantly for us. This one was a special request made right after recording and Jacob came through!

What does “holding space” mean to you? We have been witnessing a huge shift in the dynamics between the masculine and the feminine in our generation. Over time, we are coming to the realization that a lot of our concepts of what it means to be man or woman, in life or in relationships, have been deeply affected by ideas that don't necessarily hold value to the world we live in today. We continue to love, we still pursue relationships and connection, and we still seek understanding in what it means to be in our power and balance within the masculine and feminine within us. But, should we be more committed and aware of the change that needs to happen? On this week's episode of The Deep Dive I chat with Sheleana Aiyana, founder of The Rising Woman which boasts over 2.4 million followers on Instagram alone, and has created a platform where she coaches and encourages women to become more empowered and aware of their strength and power in relationships and life. For any of you who may be looking to understand more about what it means to be divinely feminine and an empowered woman; this is a special episode that I don't want you to miss.
