Podcast Episode Released Today!

Dear Friends,

Many years ago I heard of this mysterious thing called the Dark Mountain Project. Some sort of manifesto; a minor keyed jojk over how things got to be the way they are.
I never understood exactly what it was, yet I've been carrying it with me. As a rumour of a possible other world, maybe not so far from ours. A place held by poets, campfires and different meaning-making.

So, when one of the editorial members for our upcoming film A Journey into Transition suggested I interview Dark Mountain co-founder Dougald Hine, I lit up. I hadn’t realised that Dougald was living in Sweden - right here in my jurisdiction. In an old shoe factory, as it turned out.

I hope you'll enjoy this conversation as much as I did.

With love,
Mattias Olsson

Or, as Lizzie Leigh put it:
”I was seduced by nuance. Tears rose. The music is still lapping round my ears. The pace of my today is just a little bit slower.”

Be Stilled by Stephen Jenkinson

”Stillness. Quiet. They are the black of the inner life. Or the white. They are all of its repertoire. All of its colors, all at once. Or they are all of its colors, gone.”

Listen to the full Jenkinson poem here, in the form of a video essay. Five minutes to mess up your inner metronome.
