Valemon The Bear: Myth in the Age of the Anthropocene with Martin Shaw
This Week from the Emergence Magazine Podcast
Emergence Magazine is an online publication with annual print edition exploring the threads connecting ecology, culture, and spirituality. As we experience the desecration of our lands and waters, the extinguishing of species, and a loss of sacred connection to the Earth, we look to emerging stories. Our podcast features exclusive interviews, narrated essays, stories and more.
This week’s episode is an audio adaptation of our multimedia experience Valemon the Bear: Myth in the Age of the Anthropocene, featuring mythologist Martin Shaw. Martin’s vivid telling summons the ancient tale of a wild daughter falling in love with a bear, inviting us into a deep encounter with a living myth that has the potential to remind us of the parts of ourselves we’ve forgotten, if we let it.
