Live from TWL Mini-Con! After a powerful workshop with Stephanie Rose Bird on DNA Ancestry, we talk about Legacy. What kind of legacy are we leaving behind as Witches? We also explore herbs and rituals for addressing imposter syndrome, healing legacy with problematic ancestors, and focusing on Shadow work to support a future legacy. Plus, relating to our Ancestors across gender lines, doing Magick when living with ADHD, and working with ancestors who were essentially wiped out.
