July 2017 Episodes:

  • A Lammas Celebation
  • Listen:
  • It's Lammas, or Lughnasadh, the Sabbat where many Wiccans and Pagans celebrate the beginnings of the harvest. This Sabbat is about the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth -- the grain god dies, but will be reborn again in the spring.

    Depending on your tradition, you may also observe this Sabbat as the day of the Celtic craftsman god, Lugh. Lugh was known to the Celts as a god of craftsmanship and skill -- in fact, he was known as the Many-Skilled God, because he was good at so many different things. Take the opportunity this day to celebrate your own skills and abilities, and make an offering to Lugh to honor him, the god of craftsmanship.

    So this week we'll celebrate Lamas as we look at both the tradition of the Harvest Festival and the honoring of Lugh.

  • The Sacred Traveler
  • Listen:
  • Here we are, in the middle of summer; it's time to go out and see the world!

    As the song says, "A week in Paris will ease the bite of it", but the Sacred Traveler tries to go a bit deeper. The Sacred Traveler looks for the transcendental, the numinous, making time off from his day gig a life learning process or even an exercise in self-realization.

    Well, what is it that attracts people to places on this level? We'll take a look at the connection between Earth Spirituality and the many spiritually mysterious places around the world.

    Also, I have a listing of 8 such mysterious places that we could visit anywhere in the world. That's, of course, if you want to. But if you can't or haven't thus far, you might need a spell to help you attract Travel energy into your life.

    Then, once that's achieved, you'll need to protect yourself. Insurance is great, but I've got some Moonstone magick that you might like a bit better.

  • This week, the Spiral Dance is just a Day at the Beach! We'll start with the Charge of the Sea Goddess and we'll explore the role that Water has always had in religion.

    From there we'll look at a few Sea Gods and Goddesses. Then I want to share a story. This is a spoken word peice presented by Mara Freeman. It's called, The Selkie!
