Samhain 2018, October 31st

Hello, friends and listeners of the Thoth-Hermes Podcast,

Blessed Samhain to all of you out there! I would like to use the opportunity of this very special day to send greetings to you and to also give you a few updates.
You might have been wondering what has been going on with Thoth-Hermes and why there have not been new episodes in the last few weeks. Well, at least I do hope you have been wondering!
Indeed, I had thought and told you that by now Thoth Hermes would be back to its regular bi-weekly schedule. But I am sure some of you know the feeling when life takes over and things happen differently from what you would have thought or wished.
After my big professional change, I just needed more time to settle back in again, to gain a new rhythm in my life. Part of this was also to establish a new spiritual evolution and to get back to regular and more intense personal practice in my “new life”. All of this was – and partly still is – taking much more time and especially energy than I had expected. Visibly, my previous professional situation had been much more stressful than for a long time I had felt myself and had brought me to some kind of psychological edge and exhaustion where I needed to get away from: through rest, exercise and the re-establishment of deeper awareness and insight.
I am glad that this introspective period now finally seems to bear its fruits and that I not only feel much better in general, but also clearly sense my usual energy and sensitivity returning, and somehow even better than ever before.
Creating the episodes takes a lot of time and energy, not so much doing the interviews, but editing, creating the website etc., all that all those podcasters out there know very well. So, I just need to get my act together and get the cart rolling again!
I don’t want to bother you any further with all this, but I thought I owed you this explanation. Thanks to those who inquired, to those who told me that they were missing new episodes, and thanks to all those who have shown continued interest by downloading the existing episodes.
I still don’t want to give you an exact date for the next episode, but I promise it will be coming soon, and of course then Thoth Hermes will slowly return to its regular rhythm. Also, I have been telling you previously that I am planning to expand the show in certain ways, and those plans will also materialize in the near future.
So, please, once again, bear with me and stay tuned. I will do my best not to disappoint you!
In the meantime, and rather appropriate for the season, if you have not yet done so, please go and listen to the latest episode, where I present a very interesting interview with Tracey Rollin about “Santa Muerte”, or enjoy last year’s special episode for Samhain! And of course, all the other episodes…
Once again, blessed Samhain!
Rudolf aka Gnothi

The current podcast episode

This episode presents an interview with Tracey Rollin about her book and work on “Santa Muerte”, the famous folk saint widely associated with the Day of the Dead.

Your Thoth-Hermes host, Rudolf aka Gnothi Seauton, to be heard on “Occult of Personality”

It has been an enormous pleasure and honor to me to be Greg Kaminsky’s guest on Episode 193 (yes!) of his legendary podcast. True, I have been his co-host there for almost two years now, but it is quite different to be “on the other side”. Hope you will enjoy!

Here is the link!

The second part of this interview can be found on Greg’s membership page, “Chamber of Reflection”, click here! Do not miss that either!

Upcoming episodes

Soon to come: Episode 6 of Season 2 will feature Swedish writer and researcher Carl Abrahamsson

And in Episode 7 this will be the long-awaited return of Thomas Karlsson!

A few words about this page

Thoth-Hermes has been a plan I have been cherishing for a while: a website treating different subjects from the world of the Western Esoteric Tradition  … At the centre of the activity there is a podcast, presenting mainly high quality interviews with important authors, thinkers and and experts, but also other aspects of the field.

I am European. Over the centuries Europe has given birth to most of the currents of what we call the Western Tradition. Over the last century or so there has been a shift towards North America, where many of the leading experts are now located. Also what we find on the internet comes often out of North America and the Anglo-Saxon world. Thoth-Hermes will try to give a strong European accent to our field, but is of course at any time open to esotericists from the whole planet.

I am an Artist. This is why I have also a special interest in artists who are working with influences and impressions from the Esoteric realm in their art, be it performing arts, music or visual art. The podcast and the website will therefore regularly feature artists and their work.
