Breaking Spells:The Interview Series is Now Available!


The beautiful spring issue of the Immanence Journal is out -- and so is our interview series on spells!

In the three programs Hannah Custis and I discuss three questions. What can fairy tales can tell us about how we come under spells in life? How do we become aware that we're under one? And how are spells broken?

To see programs 2 and 3, please subscribe to Immanence. For a nominal fee you can have access to interviews, poetry, art, and jargon-free articles that demonstrate the power of myth in life.
