Musitations™ - Episode 6 - The Alchemy of Awakening the Soul - A Soulversation with McCall Erickson

In episode 6 I have the wonderful opportunity to have a deep soulversation with musician and author McCall Erickson.  I first read a quote 4 years ago by McCall that touched me deeply, “Soul work is not a high road. It's a deep fall into an unforgiving darkness that won't let you go until you find the song that sings you home.”  It was a beautiful distillation of what I have found to be true on my own journey.  We explore her journey and her book The Second Half of the Mountain: A guide to Personal Alchemy After Awakening and many shared interests in the overlap between the soul's journey and the creative process - in particular music - and the importance of honoring decent, growing down and darkness as sacred and critical in finding an authentic life grounded in the wholeness of being, including the times we must embrace the sacred dimensions of emptiness and not-knowing.    For me a soulversation is two souls encountering each other in the present moment tracking the music that arises between there own rhythms, melodies and see what third element arises - like the harmonics that arise spontaneously and seemingly out of nowhere in music.  I hope you'll enjoy ours, I sure did!
