Holy shit, I think this is the first time I’ve put up two videos in a 24-hr span…but I’m super stoked to share this second part to my geomancy interview with Sam Block. And this video is a straight up 45-minute tutorial (complete with my, er, oddly corporate-powerpoint looking visual aids) on how to create your very own geomantic chart. Basically, I want all my friends to create a chart and tell me what the Witnesses and Judge says. Enjoy!
