S2 Episode 29: What Is A Mystic? An Interview with Simon Drew
Manage episode 351357995 series 3334381
David interviews Simon Drew, Poet, Podcaster, and Founder of The Walled Garden Philosophical Society. In our conversation, we talk about the founding of The Walled Garden, and it's mission of "finding Wisdom, wherever it might be found". How poetry and mysticism contribute to the mission of a philosophical society.
We discuss pathways to initiation, including mythology and philosophy, as ways to understand Wisdom. We discuss our own journeys of coming to understand what we know and what we don't know. Simon also shares one of his poems, The Mystic, to explain "What is a Mystic anyways?"
