This week’s episode of Zoom Town is a conversation with author and podcaster, Jasun Horsley. We talk about his latest book, 16 Maps of Hell, and other topics, like Synchromysticism. It’s a fascinating conversation.
Before moving to Spain to study with Dave Oshana, Horsley was living in Hope, British Columbia, where he turned a former crack house into a thrift store (the renovation process became a part of his book, Prisoner of Infinity), so he’s no stranger to the bio-region known as Cascadia.
What does this guy have to do with our little Zoom Town, you might be wondering? Why talk about synchronicities and spiritual matters when our physical landscape continues to transform into a gentrified, elitist playground for wealth?
I think there is a spiritual aspect to the process of gentrification, and that process relates to how artists are often involved in making physical spaces hip and cool, priming them for capital investment. I’ll be writing more about this in the months to come.
Until then, enjoy the podcast!
