This gorgeous episode has our hearts singing. Dr. Maria DeBlassie joins us to discuss Brujeria, what it is and what it is not, as well as the Magick of New Mexico and healing ancestral trauma through both Magick and fiction. Digressions include Breaking Bad and why Kanani should never watch it, the return of the screaming goat, Shadow and Bone, and what we loved and hated about Game of Thrones. Plus, Courtney’s big scare. A listener came across an old binding spell to someone who is no longer alive. What is the best way to set it, and him, free? On Patreon: How Brujeria has influenced Magickal practices among people who aren’t of a Latinix background, and what Witches who aren’t from a Brujeria background can learn from it.
