Episode 41: Nausicaa and Princess Mononoke

The Priestesses go to the movies! Again! In this fresh installment, Amanda and Jacob "Ohm" in on the Studio Ghibli classics, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and Princess Mononoke. What makes these films so powerful, even today? What lessons and perspectives might Paganfolk find within them? And what makes a Princess a Princess?

Wading into the water includes exploring: Thematic similarities, liminal protagonists, complex antagonists, strong female characters, ritual purity, human action and inaction, the power and terror of rage, the might of nature, karma, some Pagan exegesis and eisegesis of the films, and much, much more. Miyazaki-sama, osoreirimasu!

And they have a healthy go at masturbation, while they're at it.How does sex and self-love play along with our mental, emotional, and spiritual health? How do they connect us to ourselves and others? What techniques might... come in handy? And moreover, what does it mean to embrace our own power?Mentions:
