    The Whispering Swarm, by Michael Moorcock

    in Radio

    On April 16th, 2015 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will review the new semi-biographical novel by fantasy grandmaster Michael Moorcock "The Whispering Swarm." This remarkable book should be of special interest to magicians and Hermetic students. Moorcock is the modern heir to the mantles of J.R.R. Tolkien, and Robert E.Howard. His fiction is deeply magical and steeped in Hermetic lore. The Whispering Swarm is somewhat experimental. His protagonist is himself and he tells his life story up to his passage from adolesence into adulthood through the entrance into a secret enclave in the multiverse, inhabited by historical and fictional characters he has read about. Raised in London during and after WWll, he discovers an ancient hidden medieval village called the Alsacia, or The Sanctuary, inhabited by magical monks in an old Abbey, a tavern full of swashbuckling cavaliers, including the Musketeers from Dumas and a glamorous Hughwaywoman called Molly Midnight. He also lives in the real world, having a wife and children and a job as an editor, but is driven to escape into The Sanctuary by the tumult of Whispering voices in his head (the Swarm). Most importantly it explores Moorcock's two warring personalities in emotional spiritual and political conflict. He is a romantic at heart and an agnostic socialist in intellect -- so he fights to save King Charles from Cromwell's Ax because his cavalier heroes need his abilities to walk between the worlds. One wonders all through the book, just how much of the fantasy is real, or a metaphor for reality. So, if you want to visit an adult's Land of Oz then follow us through the London fog to the hidden gates of the Sanctuary and we'll find the Swan with Two Necks tavern for a shant of ale and an hour of High Magical Adventure.

    I Dare You To Be Great with guest Earth lawyer and advocate Polly Higgins

    in Self Help

    Why is it important for us to save our environment to save ourselves?


    According to my guest Polly Higgins the extensive damage or loss of the ecosystem of a given territory - be made a legally recognized crime. Polly is a passionate advocate for more comprehensive environmental safeguard. Polly has realized that great change, and thereby the greatness, begins with the individual self, and that before we can break the cycle of environmental harm playing out across the world, each one of us must break our own personal Ecocides. “I Dare you to be great” a book by Polly Higgins signals rousing call to arms for all mankind to join her in one giant leap toward greatness.


    “I Dare you to be great” explores Polly Higgins’ story as an Earth lawyer as she discovers how we can create a legal duty of care for the Earth – a law of Ecocide. We have a choice: break our chains and create a greater freedom, or remain enslaved to an era of Ecocide. Polly invites in a conversation of a different kind; firing up a neural pathway of exploration that takes us into the unknown yet expands our vision of what our legacy could be. Sharing her insights, she sheds a light on what is possible – a vision far greater and more beautiful than we have dared before.

    Indie Books #80 (David Robert)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author David Robert joins me this week to talk about his book: Wanderlush.


    When David, a self-proclaimed anxiety-ridden introvert, convinces himself he’s dying of cancer, he invites his delightfully unpredictable, -popping, chardonnay-swilling mother on a series of international good-bye vacations. By doing so, he unwittingly opens a Pandora’s Box of hilarious and humiliating events that will test just how far they are willing to go to get a laugh.


    David knows the trips will be anything but boring because he and his mom have been causing a scene for as long as he can remember. He describes her as a cross between Bea Arthur and Karen Walker from Will and Grace, and she is notorious for bending the rules.


    But nothing can prepare him for escapades that include digging his mom out of a rain gutter in Costa Rica and being dragged across the Arabian Desert by a psychotic camel named Forrest Hump. As the vacations unfold, David discovers that although he and his mom are having the time of their life, she is ready to share a secret that will change everything.

    Interview with John Fioravanti for Passion & Struggle

    in Books

    Marco Rossini is a historian with no political aspirations, and no desire for power. However, he possesses unique knowledge that is about to change his life: he knows the human history of the planet Earth. 

    The Year is 2796 CE, and on the planet Genesis, human civilization looks very similar to the world it left behind. One difference dominates: a Church, created by the United Nations to compel peace, has ruled for seven centuries. Now, in the wake of a brutal war that aligned humanity with the new rulers of Earth, the old ways have been shattered, and Genesis needs a new, egalitarian government. Marco is the right man to help lead the change, but as the professor soon discovers, the battle between Church and state is far from over, and both sides are willing to spill blood. 

    Struggling to remake his world, to find love, and to survive in troubled political waters, can Marco Rossini change history?

    Deepertruth: Lighthouse Presents Jesse Romero-The Eucharist

    in Religion

    Jesse Romero is a well known Catholic Apologest I had the chance to meet at a Conference in Tyler Texas.  He is a dynamic speaker.


    Pope John Paul II, in his letter, On the mystery and worship of the Holy Eucharist – April 1980: “The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic Adoration. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet him in Adoration, and in contemplation that is full of faith and ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world. May our Adoration never cease”.


    The Angel held a consecrated Host and the chalice, leaving this suspended in the air, the Angel bowed down low before the Eucharist praying these words, “O most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore you profoundly, I offer you the most precious body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifference by which he is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners”.


    How wonderful it is when young people decide to spend time with our Lord and give their lives for Christ at an early age!


    How wonderful it is when a young woman decides to give life to the child resting in the shadow of her wings!


    How wonderful it is when a struggling marriage that was falling apart is renewed by a surge of love of God!


    How wonderful it is when the elderly dedicate time to pray for those lost!


    How wonderful it is when a Prodigal child returns and discovers Jesus in the Eucharist!
