Boysen Hodgson here. While Brandon is taking some time off for paternity leave with his lovely family, I’m filling in. 

This week, I’m pulling out a conversation recorded for the Kosmos Journal earlier this year. 

In this wide-ranging dialog, we talk about rites of passage work, sacred masculinity, the importance of connection, and also about the core role that ritual, music, poetry and creativity can play in creating community and shifting the culture.
