This week we will begin something of a sporadic miniseries on energy.
A number of premium members have remarked that I’m typically pretty down on energy models. And I suppose I am, but with the qualification that I am pretty down on the prevailing energy models we have inherited from the 19th century with very little subsequent criticism. Freed from these unexamined assumptions, 'energy' in the broadest sense is an inarguable component of worldwide magical systems.
In many ways, this may be the final shoe to drop in this current magical revival. Restoration of context is well on its away. The decolonising turn is a bit behind that but also on its way.
So to kick it all off, we are speaking with Phil Watt. Phil is a writer, podcaster, self-described neoshaman working exclusively with an energy model and -living my actual dream- a market gardener in the delightful New South Wales town of Bellingen.
