For many, the word apocalypse brings to mind social or environmental breakdown, collapse, or destruction on a grand scale. The word comes to us from the ancient Greeks, formed of the roots apo, which meant ‘un-‘, and kaluptein, which meant ‘to cover’. Unlike our modern use of apocalypse, apokaluptein did not invoke the notion of collapse or breakdown. Rather, it meant to uncover, to disclose, or to reveal.
The times we live in reveal many truths for those attentive enough to see them. Some of these truths portend significant changes in our lives and our social arrangements. If we embrace these truths they might give us clues for how best to adapt to the changing world we live in and to whatever new world awaits once the proverbial dust settles. Embracing Apocalypse will invite listeners into a space of curiosity, and to embrace the many truths being revealed by our tumultuous times. The first episodes of this podcast will be released on December 21, 2019 (the winter solstice). Sign up for my newsletter below for updates, and become a patron on Patreon to get a sneak peak!

From October 2018 through August of 2019 I released episodes of Healing Culture Podcast.
