As always, a profound thanks to our sponsors! See below for listener specials! What is Shadow work? Why is it helpful for Witches? Kate Freuler, author of Of Blood and Bones Magick joins us to discuss the power in stepping outside the “love and light only” framework. We discuss working with the dark moon, common misconceptions about cursing, and the use of blood or bodily fluids in spellwork. We also explore the ethical use of animal components in Magick, along with modern day sacrifices (they aren’t what you might think they are!). Kanani’s husband reviews “The Craft” for us. Listen out for the new word Kanani claims she made up: “Witch-ism!” A listener is struggling with imposter syndrome with regard to their spirituality. How can they feel more comfortable with embracing the title of Witch? Audio transcript to follow.
