Episode 5 – Samhain and Ancestors

We’re back! In this cast we discuss how we celebrate and observe Samhain, the witchiest time of year. We touch on ANZAC Day, and what that might mean for Samhain and for pagans. We also discuss Ancestor work in relation to our spiritual practice, and go into depth on what incorporating veneration of the Beloved Dead and our Ancestors involves. We hope you enjoy listening to what we think is probably our best episode so far!

Episode 4 – Solitary and Group Practice

In this episode, we attempt to cover the wide topic of solitary vs. group practice. What are the differences, benefits and advantages of working alone versus finding like-minded souls to share your experiences with? We talk about our ideas on finding a group, different group structures, and carving out a solitary practice.

It was HOT in the studio when we recorded this! So apologies for that, it melted our brains somewhat at times.

Episode 3 – Spiritual Burnout

Happy New Year! This episode we tackle the tricky and slightly heavy subject of burnout – in particular, spiritual burnout. What is burnout? What can cause it?

We recount moments of doubt, cracks in self-esteem and ego, times when we’ve been burning the candle too brightly or have been overcome by cynicism, and times when extrinsic forces have sought to thwart our spiritual journey as witches and pagans. How did we tackle it, and what are some strategies to get re-energised? How do we exit witchy ruts and return more sparkly than before? We answer all these questions and more.

In this episode, we are back to discuss ‘that wonderful time of year’ – Christmas! What does it mean to be pagan, and to live in the Southern Hemisphere around Christmas time? How do we observe the Summer Solstice and deal with the craziness that is the silly season? We also chat about dealing with family, honouring our elders, and we talk about the topic of death.
