My guest today is Béa Gonzalez, an author, podcaster, lecturer, educator, and one of my favorite social media follows. I’m a fan of Béa because of her passion for teaching people about the importance of a metaphorical approach to life. As an author, Béa’s novels have been published in seven countries. Her titles include The Bitter Taste of Time, The Mapmaker’s Opera, and the recently published Invocation, which is available now. Béa recently launched a podcast called Gatherings, with her friend and musician Jay Redelsperger, in which they sit down to discuss subjects they are both passionate about—books and music. Whether reading her books, watching her lectures, or listening to her podcast, Béa always has something deep, relevant, and interesting to say. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversation and hope you do as well.
In our conversation we discussed storytelling, active imagination, the benefits of pushing known boundaries, human evolution, history, psychology, Carl Jung, creativity, writing, individuality and our inner need for connection.
