Today, we are visiting our guest, Agnes Becker’s world.
This is the world of we are stardust - a place where art and science collide to enrich your experience of and relationship with our messy, beautiful universe.
So what’s this episode really about?
Agnes creates artwork that inspires connection with the more-than-human world and online adventures that encourage you to rewild your soul.
We talk about wonder, and hidden worlds, and finding both by slowing down and really looking. Agnes' invitation is to engage our senses and notice - and we'll be rewarded with the gift of opening our perception of ourselves and the way we experience the world.
There is so much wonder in Agnes’ work. If you feel like you’re rushing around but you’re aware that something else is going on beyond that, in nature and in some deeper part of you, our conversation will help you find your way to your wild and beautiful soul.
We discuss the attention economy, that first spring of COVID-19, how to let go of urgency and the grief that can come up when we reconnect with the natural world. She talks about how she navigated her way to a place where she weaves art and science together, and how We are Stardust is her place to belong in the world.
If you’d like to connect to the more-than-human world, Agnes offers a portal.
