Ep. #71: Poet, Founder of Luna Luna Magazine, and Author of Light Magic for Dark Times Lisa Marie Basile on Darkness as a Way to Explore What It Means to Be Alive

“I wanted to use the darkness as a way to explore what it means to be alive.”

Founder of Luna Luna Magazine Lisa Marie Basile and Author of Light Magic for Dark Times Lisa Marie Basile

In this episode poet, founder of Luna Luna Magazine, and author of the new book Light Magic for Dark Times Lisa Marie Basile joins Living Open for a conversation about darkness as a way to explore what it means to be alive.

“Finding ways to get in touch with your vulnerability and nature and your authenticity is pretty much the only way to find joy. Listening and learning and connecting…for me it’s just about rooting myself in the world around me and in myself as well.”

We talk about:

  • Telling stories as a homecoming

  • Being vulnerable & being seen

  • Making magick your own and integrating it into your life

  • Honoring light and dark and everything in between

  • Exploring darkness

  • Scorpio energy and what it means to her as a Scorpio sun

  • Self care and magick with a chronic illness

  • A self-love spell from her book for those with chronic illness (amazing for any kind of trauma and body love) and more

“Light and dark…are friends. They’re one half of the other.”
