Democrats Go on the Offense With Biden's Agenda

"Christian cinema is the subject of Selena zito's latest column in the New York Post and it's a terrific one. Selena joined me from Pittsburgh also in morning after a football lost this weekend, like the browns. Good morning, Selena, happy November 30th, to 29th to. Good morning, happy November 29th year as well. You know, I am very beleaguered by the browns lost late last night to the ravens the Steelers got blown out. We are both not likely to go to the playoffs, though it's possible for the browns. I don't think it's possible for the Steelers anymore. So you might be depressed, but I like your cinema piece because I read a lot of the build back better Texas this weekend. I'm up to page 800. It's a nightmare for Democrats. Yeah. I mean, I haven't been that diligent in reading it because I've fall asleep. But I completely agree with you. There's so much in there. And, you know, it's really interesting, I think, to me, here in western Pennsylvania, the amount of ads being run by Democrat affiliate organizations that would side with the Democrats pushing them not only to vote for this, but also to make more amendments to add more things. And I'm just sort of stunned. Watching these ads call senators Casey. Make sure he adds this to build that

Jon Gruden Resigns as Raiders Coach Over Decade-Old Offensive Emails

"John Gruden has always been kind of a wild child in the NFL always been a little bit of a loose cannon, if you will. And I believe he was also he was also the coach of the Oakland Raiders in like the 90s. And then he went to the Buccaneers and led them to the Super Bowl very complicated. But then he rejoined the Raiders in 2018 after he was an analyst on Monday Night Football. Do you remember those things he used to sit down with the quarterbacks? And it was like Gruden's corner. I've never been a big fan of Jon Gruden. I'll be very honest. One in 2002, that's right, my memory's not too bad. I'm not going to be an apologist for Jon Gruden. Okay? I'm sure he lives a complicated life like most people in the NFL. But this recent saga involving in his resignation slash termination is disgusting. And the national Football Association is in many different ways. In enterprise that is built on a House of Cards. The entire structure of how many of the teams are filed as nonprofits on how almost every stadium is built thanks to taxpayer dollars. There's a lot of corruption that exists in the national football, the National Football League. And so it came out a couple days ago that John Gruden is going to be fired, or it has to speak out for his racist and homophobic emails over ten years ago. And I shrugged my shoulders and I actually didn't know where this one was going to go. Because John Gruden signed a ten year 100 million dollar deal with the Oakland Raiders. And now so he technically resigned whatever he says, I have resigned as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be distraction. Thank you to all the players coaches and staff and fan fans of raider nation. I'm sorry I never meant to hurt anyone, John Gruden. And so it was revealed in some of these emails. And based from what I've said, seen should have said something's probably not no, was he joking around in private in a context that none of us can understand? Yes. He incited Joe Biden, insulted Joe Biden I can't even say what he called Joe Biden on air. It's kind of hilarious. Called Roger Goodell, a certain name. I'm no fan of Roger Goodell. So if this whole thing is like a Roger Goodell, apology tour, but here's what really matters. Here's the question. In the National Football League, do they ever allow people to do bad things and continue to participate? Like murder. How about rate Ray Lewis and his legacy of the unsolved double murder? Or how about you remember this one? You remember ray rice, who literally punched his fiance in an elevator? It was an elevator, right? Which gained total notoriety following the indictment he was released by the ravens and suspended, and now rice would be reinstated after he successfully appealed the league's decision. And this whole thing with John Gruden is this question of should you be judged by things you have said in private ten years ago to destroy your current

Chiefs vs. Chargers: Kansas City Defense Looking Weak Ahead of Sunday's Game

"All right folks will this next game that we've got Is going to be against our division rivals. The kansas talk Yeah so let's take a look at a couple of games for them. Their first game of the season was against the cleveland browns. That's who they played in the playoffs last year Let's see patrick. Mahomes put up over three hundred and thirty yards three touchdowns in that game Tyreek hill almost got two hundred yards. Goodness gracious On that game with a touchdown. And travis kelsey seventy six yards with two touchdowns so clearly we know who favor targets are guys from that game tyreek hill and travis kelsey They were pretty comparable as far as their stats go. Cleveland was able to put up a four hundred fifty seven yards. That's a big difference I think the big thing here is the rushing yards in this game in the next game. They they've put up very few rushing yards and they put up seventy two their week. One game against the browns. They put up sixty two week. Two against the ravens. So i'll and then the ravens put up to fifty and the browns put up one hundred fifty three so just looking at this and how close these games are this. Kansas city chiefs team is defense. Isn't what he was no. You can clearly see that. And i'm looking at these stance here. It looks like against baltimore. Game tyreek hill only got fourteen yards leagues. What happened here. So they've they've shut them down. While i think that's you know we put this in here to just show the fact that if we can lockdown kelsey and hill and just moderately. Stop the run. I think we're going to have a good chance and we just need to score touchdowns like you're gonna have to score thirty to beat these

That's what they've told people. Nick busy nights on the old twitter for you. Take us through all of this. I mean so the the tweets really dum summit up to for the most part the fact that matters this there were a handful of teams that contacted the nets and take the temperature on whether or not any of the big three particularly career irving were available. Everyone knew that durant not available in hardens. Almost assuredly not available but since they acquired harden and because the net you know have a surplus of scoring and a surplus of ballhandling. There's thought kyrie might be available. And those teams were not told untouchable. No reason to call us back. It's like calling golden state for step. It will never happened. They were led to believe. Well i mean you know. We'll be irresponsible not to listen but now there is nothing to listen to because and this i know for an utter certainty no matter what gifts kyrie sends to me on twitter.

Thank you out of business Her William bought the last stock and and that and then that was. It was disappointing because everybody that was attending if they were able I was never able to get in the class and I know these people and it was it was always so crowded and I figure I can always learn from them at home I was GonNa say she's she's offered to teach me and a few other people in our class. I think she she if she ever offers to teach you anything. Always take her up on it absolutely she. She knows her stuff. Yes but yeah so and then nat had actually taught Something that was related to Terro. I can't remember it was it was a it was a project but she had also taught a class on that.

We do we do So Anyway this is the final one and it's a really sad him. It's also the one year anniversary of the idea. Ravens at the crossroad. Yes it is so it's even though it's not like official one year because that's in July but yeah but this was. This is the time that we came up with the idea. I know this because I got the renewal notice for the domain while I know this because I remember sitting there. Yeah in Arden Haynes booth having that conversation that just went. Hey I have an idea. Well how about this to that idea? Well that sounds cool. What about this and it just blossomed and we move forward when we totally ran with it. So it's kind of ads the bittersweet moment 'cause like this was the event that that was born but you know and and Glenn Who Glenn is the The founder of Pantheon Con Even she said everything has its cycle meaning in life. Everything has a cycle and she said you know. This is just Pantheon Cycle. It was just time and I know. A lot of people are going to be really bummed because a lot of people in the community got something from this miss and I know other people are going to be like well. That's okay And that's fine too So I'm looking forward to seeing what grows from this because a lot of different groups are saying. Hey I want to start this and so it might not be one giant event like Pantheon. It might be seven more smaller events. Then you grow from it but so long as it just keeps blossoming. Exactly that can listen to. The next point was asked about. How would people be able to find these other members in the community? That's a question actually get questioned a lot. People reach out to me on the regular. They're they're in an area where they don't necessarily have a large pagan community that they're aware of You know like southern California who you can find pain in southern California really easily right because there's a lot of supply stores to go to. There's a lot of different events that are public rituals classes All different kinds of things. But we've had a number of people show up to the like. I knew nothing about this. I know we do. You mean like they didn't are saying the ones that didn't know anything about the community. The community specifically right and You know there wasn't much of a community. In in Orange County specifically knitting it existed very like there were little pockets of people that knew each other and gather at each other's houses or they go to some of the local stores but it was still not very obvious right not like now like dragon in the rose which is What city are based in orange? Santa Ana Santa Ana? I believe here in Santa Ana so when they came on the scene they Karen is the owner She did what I think is one of the coolest things. She was very much thinking about how she can connect with the community at large and it wasn't just about drawing people to you know by her wares. It was really about making her store. The hub of the community for people to make connections and and I thought that was fantastic. it's an amazing place to be a make connections absolutely Karen and Atalaya I think are stellar examples of our community for contributing to our community and participating absolutely. I know caring for our class. Our teacher has gone off and let her know what books we need. And so Karen. Stocks are books so absolutely a lot. A lot of those stores will will do that if you talk to them If you already have really connection and I know your teacher has a connection with Karen And but the great thing about being in so callous we have a ton of stores. We do And if for some reason one store doesn't have what you're looking for it very likely drive down the road. That store might have what you're looking for But outside of Southern California your options are not as you know. There isn't as many options. There's not as many and they may not be as obvious they may be listed under other things share Used to suggest. And this is where. It's a little heartbreaking. I used to suggest go onto the witches voice go onto the website and the witches voice because they had an area where you could network and you could find based off of region. You'd look up your state. Then you'd look up your city and you could find if there were groups. Classes stores rituals Workshops events and individuals who were in your area that you could network with in person and But they were they were a worldwide website and unfortunately as of December thirty first this last year two thousand nineteen. They closed their website. Y- they're still available as a informational Facebook page right but it's not not to the level than the original a voice or which box Used to be so now so now it kind of narrows down your options and so I would say start off by looking on meet up dot com meet ups of good one and That's how I built the community in Orange County Helped to build that out was Doing meet ups but also I would suggest that in some areas an in person group may not be possible. And so therefore you might need to start by networking online. Yeah I'm part of a couple groups on facebook that are so there's there's lots and lots of groups on facebook And then you could and you might even find him by region. Because I know that there's at least two specifically for California. Yeah and then. I've seen I know of others that are smaller that are for Los Angeles. La Orange County Southern California So you might WanNa start looking in there and look by region but then There are other. There are other websites one of the things that want to jump right back to facebook is if you find a group and you don't fit in don't be disheartened because there's so many different groups out there and some of those facebook groups especially the smaller ones can be a little cliquey. Yeah Yeah you know what though? Here's the thing in person online. You'RE GONNA find cliquey groups. It's just the way it is and either you'll fit in or you don't but Tyler said don't be disheartened. If this is the path you want to be on. You'll find your people exactly. Just keep trying and put yourself out there to be able to open to you know. Meeting people and the other thing is like I know people are like well. What about finding a teacher or a coven you know? Have to join a coven to practice. Witchcraft it's not a necessity. It's cool if you find a group that you really click with and it they kind of provide family and community sense to and if you're really interested in having somebody teach you. There are so many sites online. Yeah there's actually I have a list on my mistress prime dot com page where I listed a bunch of schools That are available online temple witchcraft. Cherry Hill Seminary. Yep there's there's a bunch of school which there's a bunch and I know that I'm missing some and I should probably actually because I wrote the list a couple of years ago and I should probably just go back through and maybe update it and revise it. I don't have reviews on the schools because frankly that's not the purpose of the list via the list was just strictly informational about what's available and I don't really feel like reviewing because that's not really what I went through in one of the things. My teachers working on is Putting some for lessons out available for others to Kinda see in girling based off of she has look at some of the different websites and she highlighted a couple that were based on you. You so like Cups Cups has some classes and things like that. That's another opportunity right there. Look for your local you you because they often have a cups chapter and Cup stands for. I don't know how my head I don't remember either. I just know that the cups chapter is the Pagans. Yes yes So cups is usually with your you. You groups Yuping UNITARIAN universalist. Yes but there's actually a school based With cups and I'd arm the top of my head But look for those types of things places where you wouldn't necessarily expect to see them so you may not be as alone as you may think definitely not. There's way more of us than people realize in so many different walks of life industries countries where everywhere we are we are and it's kind of funny. You know trying to stamp us out almost hate to use this analogy but we're kind of like Hydra you cut off one head to more popular there. I am unheard yet. Yes did hail Hydra at our wedding. I believe that it was during the bloat session of our wedding. Okay I'm like really dude but with I think yeah so. There's lots of opportunities for networking and connecting. And if you're still stymied you can always email us. Yes and I can point you in the right direction. Usually I can find something in your area in the United States. It's a lot easier in Canada. I still have some resources there. But when you get outside to other continents. It's a little harder but I do have connections in South America and in all over Europe What I usually like to say is. I don't know I probably know somebody that does right. I can connect you. Yeah absolutely and that's that's kind of. I learned a long time ago. I can't know everything but I can know enough people to fill in my gap. So I don't know I always google. Yeah or you've got somebody that can fill in for you so yeah but with I think so I think once again our sponsors absolutely because that you have no idea how much of a boost of confidence to see somebody go off and say I like your stuff enough that I want to see you do more. And I'm going to put my money where they invest. My heart is yeah. I really like that too it. It really It really it just makes us feel like okay. We're on the right track. Exactly so thank you. So much to Simon and NAT and Carol. Yes and we hope to speak with you. Were have another interview here soon for you and thank you for listening bus. Be Less Abi. You enjoyed this episode.

"ravens" Discussed on Ravens at the Crossroads

"And then you just get this loud boisterous like explosive energy from some of these people and even when Japanese people are because there there are a few nights we were out late were drinking in Japan. Authored of huge part of their culture It's totally acceptable to go through and like have a beer while you're walking down the street. Really Hey you can go to a public park. In the thing is you would never know it looking at the park. Because everybody's so respectful of the community. They would clean up clean up after themselves. And even if you were able to somebody were to help you. They would then clean up after you. So it's it's such a great sense of community from allows people there's an amazing experience and they were super supportive of me trying trying to speak Japanese when I did so. That was making an effort. I was I was making a legitimate effort. In that was I heard from a lot of got. A lot of friends travel abroad regularly and more often than not. I've heard that wherever it is that you go if you just make genuine effort To try to speak their language. They're usually very accommodating very much so so no that was that was great. I I didn't get any blowback for being American or anything like that so that was actually had people who came up and want to work on their English with me extra so like some of the people that we talked to. They're like Hey Can Speak English with him. Like yeah sure awesome and so I was able to have conversations with them and help them with their pronunciation some of their English. That's good enough about my trip. Lucky lucky I would love to do more traveling. That's like I was there. Guess Fifteen years you're cute when one thousand nine hundred ninety six okay. Yeah things have changed since then. Oh I'm sure even while I was there. They're prepping for the Olympics. Oh that's right so they had a lot of construction. That was. That's another thing that I find interesting in Japan. Is You know how we add things on to try and make things more accessible for differently. Abled people okay. That is a core part of everything they do. It's already it's already in a grassy and everything so like when you're walking down the street there's actually railway for somebody who's using a walking stick to use that walking stick to know where they're at no one the hidden intersection and know which direction they can go. Oh that's cool. Rail is everywhere and every train station. We went to even the one out in a fee had a handicap access for like a ramp or an elevator or something. So it's pretty much just standard. It's standard practice. That's great and it seems to have been standard practice for a very long time so I applaud them for thinking about including their entire population. Not just those who are able bodied so that was something that stood out to me. I was like holy cow because everywhere we went had that railway for somebody using walking sick even out in the middle of nowhere. You had that really cool but we're getting ready to do our own little trip your soon. It's kind of a bittersweet trip. Yeah no I mean Kinda. I'm anxious excited and said all at the same time. Yeah but this is the final year for Pantheon. Yes I've been going for fifteen years. I guess I'm calculate. Yeah I think about fifteen years NOCA- Last year was my first year as you know. And it's an annual. It's like an annual family reunion for me In the sense that I get to visit with friends that I pretty much only get to see at Pantai con because they live out of state. And it's not easy for us to get together any other time and Sometimes I'll see them at another another event that was like my other family reunion but not as often so. I'm looking forward to being able to connect with some of our friends and favorite people that will be in attendance. I know that There's a collection of people who said they aren't able to make it because Finances or just the timing just didn't work out And I'm Kinda bummed that some of our some of our local friends aren't going to be able to make at this time but I'm looking forward to definitely looking forward to seeing Amber and as real so I'm Jay and I don't really know what the schedule looks like. I actually haven't seen it yet and I. It came out posted today. Think today or yesterday one of the two. But he was very recent that they finalized. I saw some highlights. I'm Tommy is actually speaking the star child. He's speaking in the Anderson Ferry. Oh yes yeah so he and Sims are going to be giving a presentation on getting it straight. I think oh I think I saw something about I think he did post that in the unofficial Pampa Group that I'm an Admin for so We'll probably catch that over there and Kinda catch up with him when be bad idea to just speak with him for a little bit. Now we definitely have to say hello yeah And for those of you who don't know who Tommy Star Child is. He is an author and fellow for mistress prime millions of Felli fellow Gary Seear with House abry. Yes which is Iran foxwoods. Go through our list of episodes. You'll find Tommy. He's our first episode. Tom's our first one Ryan's a few months back only a couple episodes back. Yeah so definitely. If you're interested You'll also get see how evolved as far as audio quality. It was it was a learning experience. Yes but Tommy's interview was fantastic. I really enjoyed it was yeah it was great. The content was amazing We learned some extra stuff about the wireless mics using. Yeah then we've learned since then so I'm looking forward to it. I'm not quite sure how how we're going to do. But we're going to try and record. Maybe well I know we have a couple of interviews lined up but We might actually do some on the scene interviews with attendees possibly and do our best look real. We'll see There's a lot of a lot of equipment So we're not super mobile. We're not not mobile. We're just not as mobile. Yeah and But mostly I just WanNa go and experience it. I'm I'm one of a total of four people who are going to be Kind of coordinating hosting the Pagans of Color Caucus. I the that was back on the. Yeah and that'll be Friday night so I'm just excited to see everybody. I've always enjoyed the experience of being the caucus so I'm looking forward to it. We wanted to be able to have it available for anybody who was still planning to attend for the last one because the the people that have organized it in the past are not going to be present so Crystal Blanton Myself And to people that I haven't yet met but are connected to crystal To Nikki wise and shoot weaker. I think that was the name Nica. I don't have. I don't have her name right in front of me And so they are also assisting and awesome helping. Coordinate and you know just pull it together with us and make the space safe and An open space for sharing and connecting networking awesome So I I know there was talk last year about it and I'm looking forward to if there will be. I've heard rumors but I haven't heard anything set yet. But because this is the last one there's a lot of different groups that are going to be popping up and I had heard somewhere that somebody was coordinating to put a pagans of Color Conference on. I've heard something to that effect. I've heard a few different ones. I'm not going to really speak to any of them until I actually see them. Actually produce something. Because I don't have like I don't have that information. I only know of one group that is that is stepping up in having an a talk a open conference like a town hall meeting kind of thing at Pantheon. Okay and they're the ones that are apparently going to try and take over. Where Pantheon leaves off. I know there's been discussion from a few different folks about maybe having some of the book. Publishers potentially help maybe I pick up and run with Pantheon and they would have a little bit of background in the sense of handling larger events. So possibly we don't know I don't know I haven't heard that so for those that don't know if we've talked about Pantheon. I swear I think we have. We've talked about a couple times I think. But maybe in passing. So it's one of my one of my favorite events because it's not camping and Only because for me. Camping is just Not Always Possible. So but what it is. The I think the largest world's largest indoor Pagan Conference and this is the twenty first year. I thought I saw twenty I. I think so. It's old enough to drink. Now that's all that's right yes And what is is it starts usually on The Friday of what's President's Day weekend so like I think what the second weekend of February I think. It's falling on Valentine's Day this year. It's it's been falling on Valentine's Day weekend for the last couple of times and or however often I'm not even sure so it'll be So this Friday this coming Friday until Monday and then it goes it. It typically goes from around one. Pm on Friday until three or five PM. On Monday I can't remember. He gets it last year. End Two three okay. I don't think we stayed around for the now. Every time we packed up and left we had a long drive ahead. Yeah excuse me. So but what? It is is also like ten tracks at simultaneously going of Wicca which craft Buddhu heathen indigenous practices lectures Rituals dances musical performance. Just all kinds of things authors all your favorite authors. Have these been there once. Usually if not multiple times They anybody you've ever heard of in. The Pagan community is usually been there at least once and data presentation of some kind. It's been an incredible experience. Speaking of which didn't Carol give a presentation.

"ravens" Discussed on Ravens at the Crossroads

"Off with a special. Thank you to some wonderful people. These people have chosen to sponsor ribbons across route by visiting our website and selecting donate those people include Natalie. Carol and Simon. Thank you so much. It really means a lot to us. allows us to do more things in the community actually helped us get an ad. For the last time they con- yes and cover some of those expenses that normally would be coming out of our pocket so we greatly appreciate you guys Providing that support for US and If anybody is curious and wants to support as well you can do that. From our website there is a donate button right there on the website so once again. Thank you Carol. Net and Simon. Thank you so much for supporting us is. That means a lot to us. I means so much choice means you believe in US exactly so. I just got back recently from Japan finally. Yeah that was. It was forever. It was a good trip. I enjoyed myself. It was right around the New Year so For those of you who are not familiar. New Year's actually more of a family holiday for Japanese families. And yes. Yeah I'm like I'm seeing you shake your head but he's your words. Yeah one of the things is the family will get together and actually go to either a community shrine or temple or some families actually have their own shrines temples. I didn't know that so we got to visit. The ten thousand tweets gates very cool very very cool so each one of those Tory Gates actually sponsored so you have different families who have put money in and businesses and depending on how much money they put in Kinda dictates. How big and thick. The TORII gate is so explain to our listeners. What A- Torii Gate is Torii Gate? If you've think classic Japan those Red Gates that you'll see like a structure like a sort. I'm thinking of like when you're walking through a garden gate. The it would be like the door for the Garden Gate. Not necessarily the gate itself Okay. or the outline and there's some famous ones but the ten thousand torch gates. It is very famous. You're literally walking down a path of just tore gay after Tory Gate. And when you're facing walking up you don't see any of the dedications on there but if you walk back you'll actually see the names of the families or the corporations or whoever have paid to support in the concept behind. The Tory is to support the temple or shrine that those targets are for and so they're just really a like a very much. So yeah it's very much Sponsorship or support for that temple or shrine Is there a spiritual significance behind them? It's a physical mathis station of that family or that company or whoever okay supporting that temple. Okay so there is a spiritual element to Some of the families though at the tenth that some families have actual shrines for their family. There and some of those look like they've been there for hundreds if not thousands of years legitimately. Some of these shrines are just covered in Moss. And you don't remove the Moss from your shrine you let it grow by. I was fortunate enough to see a couple of families perform their rituals at the shrine or offerings at the shrine. Specific temple that I went to was a temple and shrine to the Sun. God and the Fox represents the Messenger for that God so you saw a lot of Fox's all over kits in they get soon they're yes so the target does actually have a spiritual representation. Okay which is why I was like. I'm pretty as an opening for you. it what it is is it's a symbolic it's symbolically marks the transition from the mundane to the sacred okay. I was not aware that was not explained to me. I just knew that there was a symbol of support from the people and so that was a big one. We visited through the deer forest deer park deer park. There used to be a deer park. That was based off of the one in Japan. Down the street from knotsberry farm. Okay okay that's interesting because there was also an alligator farm across the street from Knott's Berry Farm. I wonder whatever happened. All those dear. I was just going to say no. I think they were actually distributed to other parks but like the others though are so used to people they just walk right up to just walk right up to you. If you're not careful you'll lose whatever food mom snacking on seagulls here. Yeah yeah they do. Keep the horns trimmed down for people safety. Okay but some of the deer if you bow to them box Liebau back. That's interesting. Yeah so that was. That was an interesting little trip and then I got to visit a shrine in you being a cat lover. You'll appreciate this. The shrine is dedicated to a cat. No yeah and so. There's just tons of Neko's statues all over this shrine and it's meant for good fortune which of course at the neck. Oh has POB is. It's a welcome to welcome but there's also means good fortune one right by my hands that I didn't even noted suddenly something's touching me while you're talking. I'm right so the shrines in question or the strength. I visited the reason why it's dedication to. Cats is because a traveler had decided to rest under a tree at a temple and while he was resting their Hughes woken up by a talking cat. You know because then always happens in Japan so Japan is very has a very big tie to Yokthai still like they still believe in spirits. And it's very animistic. Yes still a strong animistic presence very much. So and just the culture. There is amazing in the sense that people work for better the betterment of the community instead of you know me but back. There's a reason behind with the culture And I I remember reading somewhere longtime ago about how it's a small space share space with a lot of people in a tiny area and the best way to just get along is to be mindful about it yes They have a saying kind of how we have. The saying. Squeaky wheel gets the oil. They have the nail that stands out gets hammered so but back to the shrine. The man was so surprised by the cat and the cat home here not safe unique inside the temple so he goes inside the temple following the advice of the cat in the tree that he had slept under had got struck by lightning and where he would have been laying would have been he would he would have died he would have died so he donated a ton of money to the temple and created that shrine for that CAP. Did you send me this info while you were there I did okay? I'm like this is sounding familiar. Yeah I was GonNa say I explained it to you all it was there because I just I thought it was so cool. Is Such an interesting backstory behind it and I got a bunch of different items from the shrines. I went to probably went to over forty different shrines and temples. That's really cool. Across like thirteen or fourteen different prefectures. It was it was a whirlwind trip. I had an amazing time. There's so much I love about Japan. the convenience stores company seven. Elevens there every corner. You can get food from those places and it's like under five bucks and it's a good quality meal and like here. Yeah I wouldn't totally different thing. Yeah would not eat something that Besides like a hot dog and even kind of question about that seven elevens like. I got some of the some amazing chicken curry there. There's a lot that I I find very fascinating about their Their way of life their culture in Japan how different it is from here in America the Public Transit System. They're better than California. I'm searle much better so much better But when you're traveling during rush hour you get crammed into car like Thirteen Ken. I'm a big guy and it was even more apparent when we were so crammed into. I could not move like I. I don't think I would have handled that very well. You had people on the outside actually shoving people in. So the door's closed. I've seen video of that like that's okay. I'll walk. Yeah so it was definitely experience giving experience what they call the scrambles. So you see you've seen videos or like enemies where people just walk across every which direction air section. Sorry I would they call those scramble food so they call those scrambles. Yeah I it's an interesting experience just saying back in watch I remember. I was talking to your husband when they were expecting a cyclone typhoon. I'm like which region isn't yeah. It's Typhon and there. I found a link to a video for a scramble not far from where he sat or was that probably the Shibuya. I think that's what it was and it's just on twenty four hours and you can just look at it from wherever you are in the world. He sent me that same Lincoln as like. Watch this time when a wave at you. I'm like Oh but I couldn't see him. He's so short he just blended in with the he's like waving. It's like a calcium short but no it was an amazing experience. Amazing time got to see so much experience so much Opening yourself up and feeling the energy flow at the temples shrines their shrines literally everywhere. Just on side of the road. There's a shrine. That's the thing that I would really love to see and experience. I wish there was more of that here. Oh I wish we lose a lot of our history here. Unfortunately and the secret. Yeah AH FOR A LOT OF REASONS. But in Japan in some of the other countries that visited Kind of make it a priority to maintain that history. You can progress without destroying history. And that's one thing I feel like we kinda lack here in the states is well. There's a lot of reasons for that. Also competing religion that tries to crush it in obliterate it wherever very true very true kind of a dominant thing but yeah it was. There was so much I learned in. I love that. There's a spirit for every tree. Animal object you know like I love that. It's love that they recognize that. Yeah it's amazing and one of the things you've been with me like last year. At Pantheon I started having feeling a little bit overloaded from all the residual energy from everybody You how'd you do while you're out? There's a lot of people a ton of people but because of the way that they're brought up and raised They keep their stuff in check. So I didn't have nearly the issue with the number of people they're the ones that set me off in. Like Ping my radar. We're usually foreigners it wasn't necessarily Americans but there were some Australians and some people from the UK that like I knew they were there because all of a sudden the energy shift the huge. Like completely you get this kind of uniform. Mellow.

"ravens" Discussed on Ravens at the Crossroads

"Hi Welcome to Ravens at the crossroads. I'm mistress prime. I'm Tyler Matthews and we're here with Jaime Dela author extraordinaire ordinaire. Thank you for having me. We also have another guest. Hi I'm Jamie Small Kathy uh-huh to meet your Kathy. Thank you for joining us today or so excited. This is so fun. I'm glad you're in town. Yeah it's kind of an unexpected wonderful thing. 'cause I knew that you'd moved out of the area and We prefer whenever possible to do in person interviews because they're just a little bit more enjoyable aspect to it because we can see your face when we're talking to you and we have a little bit more control over her audio quality little bit. Yeah Yeah I contact helps. That's like over the little thing I think so talk to us about you. Have quite the long collection of books but talk to it was about your new book. The book of spells the Book of spells. Actually revision of the teen spell book. Okay so Last October my publisher tends to be press contacted me and asked me if I'd like to revise the book which is fantastic. Because I I wrote eight books in ten years while my sons were young and then I had to leave the attention on my authorship to raise them as a single parent and go back into the workforce and I was looking for this opportunity doing my vision in boarding creating my manifesting and didn't know this would happen but this is what happened and so then. I had the opportunity to look at the teen spell book which when I wrote that I was at the end. My Saturn's return and looking to let go of some pain and some old stories particularly about the divine feminine and healing with my mom and letting go of any teenage angst in knowing that we all do the best ask that we can so when I wrote the book the first time I went through my diaries and anything that was about anything that I wrote there wasn't connected to my own divinity my own connection to the goddess and the God to community itself to belonging longing belonging is a big FEM- in my life and so anything where I didn't feel part of and separate from I wrote a spell visualization ah visualization manifestation bring the opposite virtue so if I'm talking about apathy now I'm going to talk about purpose and so then with the book of spells. What we did is eliminated fifty spells? That felt they were superfluous or very focused on team and wasn't as focused based on self empowerment. And then I added Information on the row and herbs and crystals and eight new spells based on the eighteen the year different so it's kind of an ironic twist that it was literally a full adulthood that the book grew up. That's cool yeah. Yeah so this just came out right. Yeah it came out October first One of the things about it is when the cover design was first done they had a single rose with a lot of thorns. And I said you know. I know that that's how some people present magic in Sao Awesome people present witchcraft. But I'm hopeful puff and I don't do that Mama. Don't play that game. So I sent them the quote from Leonard Cohen Ring the bells. That still can ring. Forget your perfect offering. There's a crack in everything that's how the light gets in because to me. That's what this book is is about. This book is about owning our cracks owning where we feel imperfect owning what we feel disconnected and Letting that glue be that Golden Indust. That is our connection kind of like The Japanese Art of cracking the teacup and filling it in with the gold. Filigree you to show that. That's that's what life is and then I sent them a picture. I cannot remember the artist name. I think it's ellen something or another. She's a sculptress and and she did this It's called expansion. And it's a this a sculpture of this woman sitting crosslegged position with her arms open and cracks Of light coming through her. I think I've seen that. Yeah so that's how they did the cover. Oh very cool very cool so so last night you were at an event I was invited to do an invocation also a little bit about that one of the things that was really neat about that is to have my boys with me. You know a lot of times people are asking now like why should I choose your book it with all all the book of spells that are out there all the spell books that are out there. Why should why does yours stand out? Why should we care about yours? I said well first of all it's based on my teenage years in other words it's based on the beginning of anything when it started hurting when you started to. I have your trust broken when you started to. I you know feel maybe not the. I felt depression but the first time you really start to feel that disconnect because you're developing your individuality so that also means you're developing the like some some disconnect as well and learn how to bridge that gap so it's a lot about connecting to the divide connect into original innocence connecting to your ABILITY TO CO create the world with the divine. And so this was I was able to bring my boys with me. That was really the the shining moment for for me. Is My two sons Skyler Kobe. Who are now twenty and twenty two were drumming on either side of me while I was chanting deep deep into the center were touching her deep about our mother about her mother Earth about our own divine nature and that was really very powerful for me and I was born in Saint Joseph's hospital so it was right and he was born in Saint Joe's raised reasons and Anna for the first eight years of my life so I'm returning to this place and calling in I mean I was invoking okay the directions with some and that was that was really fun and You know used my asthma like pulled it way up up and held it up with this big knife and it was just a reclamation of our witchcraft in our craft and our beauty beauty at the lightness of what we do. So that was that was really. That was really something special. Nice very cool now. Do Your boys his practice the craft as waller there just to support you. They have their own ways My youngest they both both do ritual and their own way. The youngest just did one day To heal from a heartbreak and used a lot of The work worked. I've taught him and created his own ritual to help him through. That gave him a a court cutting ritual and then he added to it with other things and other crystals so that was really cool and the young and the older one he lives in in On the islands so he he's living at every day studying in tropical agriculture. They're both they're ones into music and one's into Agriculture and and and mushrooms and and how do we make this connection. So it's it's living in them awesome. That's that's great to hear proud Mama so Since we're talking about family here let's talk about mom tells about your perspective about your daughter and how she's been on this path and do you share this path or do you have a different opinion about it or well just to give some background when I was pregnant with Jamie and I was eight months pregnant. My own mother passed away so her middle name is the same same as my mother della and I didn't realize that the time the Jamie comes from James which means supplant her and she was like the Phoenix child to me. She was the one that my cracks my sadness she could fill the void to a degree and I knew that she was not going to be like any other. She was kind of like a really unique delightful rightful whimsical mischievous child. That I saw these things in her that she was going to always go her own path. And I kinda delighted it in that. She march to the beat of her own drummer which I applauded because I appreciate that it'd be at so I see that in in her and it kind of validates and I see that how wherever she goes she kind of brings. She's kind of like the glitter of the world. She brings that that sparkle to people and lights them up and kind of shows them. I think she has light in her to be able to guide the light and other people and so so I started her paths. And I see her go in many different kind of variations of the path. And she's a searcher and a seeker and wants to affirm from life and just dance that dance of life that I loved about her swimming's got words ahead. That's awesome yeah it for when she writes things I thought. Oh I thought I was right. I it's just amazing. So tell us about amount when you first decided to really start pursuing this path in such a way that this was going to end ended up being more than just a spiritual experience at it was something that you were going to now pursue to share with the rest of the world Well I think you like my mom just laid the foundation there that I My grandmother my mom's mom had crossed before I was born so I always had this connection to the to the spirit world so it was kind of like my grandma cocoa. You know. We're that was always a part of my life so it was very and being. I'm half Mexican. It's just part of the magical realism of life is to be able to connect with the other side so to me that was just as normal as breathing Then I had another grandmother who was a Toronto reader. And that's what she did for a living and she was a character she came from a well to do family in the South and dropped all of that to pursue her crazy dreams and so I always had this Innate knowing that you could speak that you could you could bring in your own tuition that you could learn to listen to. The spirits writes that you could learn to listen to the The guidance that would come from from a from a Kodak. I remember the first time we had a a foreign exchange student from Spain. And my Nana's talking to her about past lives and that affects the relationship. She's today she's a first person who told me about soul families Jason and eleven eleven and I was hearing this all of this as a at a very young age and then it was also raised in Christian science because my mom who had been raised Catholic Her first marriage didn't work out and so when her second husband the man who raised me John came around and he was recent Christian science and that had been a religion that really helped him get through the Vietnam War when he was raising my sister and I we went to school every day. Okay so I was told everything you see. This table is no more real than the idea and the intention that you give it and so I was. I remember at eleven years all thinking of I could really see table as just Idea rather than form I pass my hand through it and the middle of the church. I did that and so I always knew this was all possible. All real and this parallel universe that we are living in you know the spirit and and the elemental beans and all of this was always just part of it. That was always very real. At the moment I decided to stand up for it though. NBA spokesperson for. It was after having bring my son so after giving birth. I thought this is the world I want to create for him. And this is the hill on and so. I didn't know how it was going to happen. You know I just started attending spots and I just started being part of the community and getting more in the formal way versus a solitary he kind of practitioner. And then I worked. I started working for a literary Asian as her assistant and when my son was born bless him. He's a Leo so he did not. He needed his attention to they get along. They have their hair in any case I remember it was one of those spells. Were you don't do that. All the directions just your intention is so pure that you feel it. Bringing out to the universe. I circled this tree holding my son. Praying to the mother Earth mother goddess to all the spirits to bring me a career where I could stay with my children and.

In this like Madonna tradition that way. How how the Indian tradition I came from land. There was brought forward. How in fance the traditions? There that are pre From the Pre Christian worship of us the semi nomadic celts in that region was mixed with this Christianity but also with the the Bible the the first exodus to those shorts. How the expulsion of the Romany in Spain seen in Portugal happened and brought these people venerating to the shores of San Paolo and going foods? You'll head is the third Portugal's fifteen seventy four degree. I can pull these facts up them so much but The parallel of this fifteen seventy four decree which forced to be settlement of these the the people the Calo from Portugal and Spain to Brazil through other colonies in Africa so the African slave trade starts words off there as well and that connection so having the indigenous people Brazil mix with the gas traditions Eh Africa mixing with the traditions of Devonian peoples fleeing these areas areas. They nearly the colonies that they're doing these Plantations on in Brazil. We're leaking their slaves. Their their their their manpower were escaping into the rainforest and a lot law. Adam were not willing to go in there because the digits people Brazilian no the area a little bit more than these Spaniards So so and then them coming out to the combined do bunder traditions and having Sent Assira Kelly's in Ghana not being a Bombardier really like it just Bo- each once strikes in having this information each year giving giving a new aspect to say it's not just one thing Kelly serious. She's worshipped over one hundred thousand Roman inaugural many people wide. And all you need is a sincere heart when asking for a favor whether for candidy or for travel all or watchful protection right so that is the story that we continually dwell on each new aspect. So Oh I'm glad that you saw in Kelly mass back In her and just now the next x when we're going to be handling is the Tara in T- Way of the semiautomatics of that megyn offense before Christian worship dwelled in that area dwelling that together. Then hopefully I'll be going back to black mothers worship in in the Ukraine great and And that area of Central Eastern Europe. And how that comes in there because that has a play but it's it's more difficult story to tell we start with a simple the ones that we can give people people a lot of information in them to look out there than we give them more and more of the mystery repealing more and more of those veils and I am blessed with so many people coming year that keeps growing small still I want I want hundreds of people I want hundreds of people just lining up making people going.

"There was potential for blowback but whatever that person had no business snooping and it gave me peace of mind to know that they weren't going off in trying to dig up dirt from what whatever it was. Yeah we're talking. I've been on facebook for over ten years now. Oh Yeah facebook since seven. Yeah so it's kind of creeped out about how much it's like. Become a part of our daily lives and if you go back to some of the old posts you can tell that they change how they do the post types. Yeah it's like Oh this makes no damn sense no yeah quite a bit changed. Yeah Since since I first started on their back in the mice based as though God my space in making your page play music and all of that stuff's gone if you still have a if you still have a my space page if you didn't delete it after it was relevant. No not after it was irrelevant after was hacked. That's right and there was a big data breach and so when that happened I went in and I had a page for myself. I actually had a page from one of my cats who had had a pretty fair following back then so head go in and retrieve all the photos and whatever else and then I deleted that and then with my page. I think there's still some something's up but everything that was on there before had nothing to do with me. It's when they reformatted the whole website. It's all gone well. The actually had a data loss loss. Yeah the the Crash some stuff and they didn't have backups. Yeah I was just like yeah. I'm sure I lost awesome photos and definitely some Like 'cause they used to have like blogs uh-huh so there was there was some stuff there that I'm kind of at a good riddance phase because it is that was During my party days and I want it to just own it was is a mess back then. Nobody nobody was born. Perfect no okay. Everybody says when you're born oh there are so perfect but in reality liberty nobody starts out in this life as being perfect and we all go through a variety of challenges which then hopefully we learned from and become better people. Ideally in theory and hopefully in practice. Yeah go yeah anyway. So family holidays. Sometimes all you can do is if you're already out and they're already a bit of a problem all you can do take deep breath but remember that it's not necessarily you especially if they're the ones that are at the antique stores and you do not have to. It's not like a mandatory thing you must submit an handle being you know. Harassed abused harangued whatever that goes for in person as well not just online. Oh that's what I was actually in person like if if it's a bad situation Shen in nobody's there to back you up and help you. There's nothing that says you can't stand up walkway right or you know if they're at your house and they're rating you like if they're coming visiting you in there they can visit the door it inside. The there are welcome. Believe Yeah because nobody has that right to belittle you and Falco with the holidays. You should be nice. Yeah but it's the holidays. Give and take their taste. Should be nice to in. I mean if they really WanNa get if you want to shine them on a little bit. Just remind them that you know Chris Mrs Based on you'll and okay now that's just being enter this because even though Christmas as it celebrated in the. US has deep pagan roots. They're not going to listen. No no or you could uh-huh flip on the Adam ruins everything Christmas special episodes he. That's just inviting conflict. I love that episode though I it's a great capacity aggressively. Go off and be like have it playing in the background when they show up. Yeah that'd be cool. That's right up there with the sitting WIFI password. Impeach Forty Five. Oh ooh went there. I saw that for me on Thanksgiving. I'm just like Oh that's right. I forgot about that. It was a mean mean for Thanksgiving and it was like Oh that could be visit the password or was it now WIFI password so they had to type it in on their phones to get on the Wi fi. Okay that's awesome. Yeah so it's just like that's that's that's great that that really is like the you pity me of like passive aggressive. If I view my facebook page a little bit like my home So if you come into my home and you act like a jerk. I'm going to show you the door. If you come come on my page and you act like a jerk you know show you the door right and we gonNA blog about it or podcasts about it. I mean we've had some people who've said some really blasphemous not blessedness incendiary comments on our posts inflammatory inflammatory. There we go. That's had a long day We have I have. I started at six. No no no I mean on the on the page. Yeah I'm like I'm I'm trying to remember. I'm struggling because there's a lot of stuff going on we've had some people that have off. Oh that's right. I forgot about that. We've had some religious people who've often called the Satan worshippers and it's like hockey worship somebody but he doesn't believe in. Yeah I don't really so I mean you Satan. Yeah I I mean we had stuff all over the place and we've had to remove and delete in band people. Yeah there is a handful of people. We had to ban after some random collection of people started showing up. But you know it is what it is. Don't even take a chance to listen to the PODCAST Austin. Learn anything. It's just. That was their attitude. That's fine and that's how you need to handle things too. Who I think is if somebody's going to be toxic and put you down? You don't need them in the aspect of your life. Life doesn't mean that you don't love them if they're your family it could hurt and you hope that eventually you know they Munich. Occasion comes around. There's an understanding and some you know. In in the best circumstances you hope for at least a mutual respect act and understanding and without you actually put a spell on post. Oh I did yeah it. It was something from llewellyn one of their spell a day. things yeah. It was for open communication. If I remember correctly open and honest communication yeah so definitely something to check out normally put a music video and then I was like you know what let's go ahead and put a thing being that I found so what is addressed to your Mistress prime ministers prime dot com. Okay I I didn't know if it was because I know it's hosted on wordpress dot com and eventually I want to move it off to the dot org side but Gotcha Okay Gotcha. It'll eventually Mosey. It's it's it's unwieldy it's very it's there's a lot there. Yeah so I have to figure out what it is. I want to do with that site but and I've only just started writing again for the last two years I've had writer's block I just haven't had the ability or desire to start writing anything. Well we've been in kind of a weird like this whole year has been just a weird on. The Sea has been weird. Yeah just all around and if you look at astrology at all like you start looking through and it's like no wonder I mean all the mercury retrograde that we had this last one we get an average of three to four Mercury Richards a year period. Because it's a smaller route around the orbit around the Sun Roy. So it's more common. It's the it's the big ones like Uranus and Pluto that have the really big long routes and so they're retrograde 's also so take a long time I think we're coming out of one of their retrograde. Forget which one though there was a whole bunch I remember. There was like several planets at one time in retrograde And you know some really I remember. It was like Saturn Jupiter and like all the larger orbit the planets were in retrograde. And I'm like seriously can we. Can we stop please. Well not well can go direct. Can we start moving forward so uh I felt like there was this long period of trudging through mud. It's kind of felt like trudging through like almost knee. Deep mud in a little bit of Mental fog I felt that quite a bit was not that old dude you. You can't be having that well. It was more along the lines of being burned out. Yeah that'll do it here. My my issue was burnt out. Yeah well the both of us are kind of similar personalities in the fact that we will take on a lot and We like to stay pretty busy so now this is true and then when you have unexpected surprise extra work all sudden adds to that but I want to. I think we're ready to wrap things up. I'm noting this time that we can cut. I WANNA yeah I wanNA get these guys calm down before kind of freaking out. Yeah so anyway I I just want to say that everybody. I hope that you have a wonderful holiday season. Whatever whatever you celebrate? Yeah I mean Saturnalia Or you'll winter solstice or whatever you know enjoy your Christmas even if it's a secular killer or Hanukkah or Kwanza Yeah I mean there are a click. Everybody just showed all holidays and one end of the year like spread out about all of that comes from I know why I was GonNa say it comes from the roots right so Yeah just enjoy your holiday today season and I hope that it goes well. We have a lot more coming up for you in the coming weeks and I hope that you enjoy what we are presenting. I would appreciate appreciate any feedback from our listeners. You know if they like what they're hearing if they want to hear specific topics or People like a senator. You let us know excellent. Thank you everybody.

"So we had to figure out how we we're going to navigate the wedding with the invitations and even wrote a post about it but basically There was a section of the family that did not want to attend our wedding because it was a pagan ceremony and they were very devout Particular I I think a very conservative Christian I don't even know what kind just that they were very conservative and Choosing my words carefully and so they had said that they were. They were afraid that if they attended our wedding ceremony that they were going to be forced into worshiping some random demon Or another God or you know something they would be forced into having this horrible experience and so they didn't want to go and there's a there was a tiny welcome not so tiny. It was a form of manipulation and there were trying to manipulate my husband into putting me in my place which is hilarious right. Because that's not how my husband operates for one and into into he knew he was getting married to When we decided to get married so I wasn't going to happen so I wrote a blog post about it is what's even funnier? I wrote a blog post about this situation how frustrating it was because weddings are stressful enough. You add into it all these other elements of of people with their weird Expectations and issues. That are that surround wedding ceremonies and then throw in completely different religious perspectives to boot. And it just it got crazy. We ended up having to different weddings. I was GonNa say if I remember you ended. Uh having two weddings. Yeah but that there was a couple of reasons for that one. We wanted to get married on our anniversary and our one year anniversary was on a Monday and So we decided we only wanted a small ceremony for that so it was like his parents. His brother our wedding party Freddie his grandfather my dad and my dad's girlfriend and you guys were talking about renting goats for that. Weren't you know that was for the big ceremony. Gotcha where there was is like I think eighty people actually showed up. The invitation was like a hundred twenty people or something and But you know a lot of those folks like lived at state and stuff but That by the time we got to that ceremony that was like the hard core like in your face. Pagan ceremony MHM The first one was illegal. Hand fasting ran. It was still pagan But it was not like doing the full circle circle calling a quarter is calling in. You know we did a bloat to Odin and Freya Freya. Sorry Odin and FRIG and There was a lot going on and there was even some much more lighthearted elements to it to make it but not so tents But that's just me having done so many weddings over the years that I I knew what I wanted to do. So I added in some celebrity With humorous stuff like goats right or not having goats as it ended up being and protesters for that But so anyway before the first ceremony or maybe it was before the first ceremony. Honey I wrote a blog post about the problems with the family. Not you know digging the fact that he was marrying I I don't think they even recognize is the fact that their own son and their nephew. My husband was not Christian. I don't even think that really entered into their brain that maybe does non-christian family member. Probably doesn't WANNA take Christian ceremony so Anyway it got it got to a point where He got. He worked with his family so they pulled him in and had a conversation with him at work so then he had called me from work to tell me okay. It's drama at work and I'm like I'm not the one making the drama at work. I'm just you know the fact that they read my blog kind of freaked me out because I'm like. Why are you reading my blog? You crazy how well no. It's just I. I didn't really think that they paid me any attention. I still don't think that they really paid any attention. But anyway But after we got married that side of the family only kind of just stopped. We faded into the background yet. I'm hurt for my husband. Like I feel really bad. Because he was very very close with that side but he has a much more practical perspective of it. And I'm like that bites. Yeah it really does in to get rejected by your family and I get it. I already get it from my family. So but I've been dealing with it a lot longer than he had. Then I was Kinda like okay. This kind of hurts for me for you. I feel bad even though I'm no I'm not at fault for them. Having their weird feelings right so in the the end would it really comes down to as I've rambled on can't control what anybody else does. In that regard. You can only control how you respond and the situation respond or react and if people are going to be toxic if they're going to be unkind to you if they're going to be bullies harass you salt you put you down. You don't have to put up with it. You can step away from the situation nations and this is where where you were talking. Just because they're blood doesn't make them family. This is where I had some point for many years. Here's hosted a friendsgiving. Instead of having family Thanksgiving and I would take in everybody who didn't have family to go to for whatever reason even if the the family still existed and live down the street right. They knew that they could come to my house and have an enjoyable celebration of a feast with with people who just enjoyed having them there. Right and that's that's an important piece of it. I think is having people who want to be a part of your life and want to see you succeed. There are so many people who I don't have that family support and who have had family actively really the dog Oser they're just playing having some fun who have actively sabotage them on their path for various things? And just because you're family doesn't mean they can't be toxic in fact because is there family that could actually mean it can be a lot more hurtful. Yeah especially when you start seeing people People going off and talking about their family like their biological family or their adopted family. Or what. Have you Going off in. Oh this is so wonderful it kind of feels like rubbing salt on an open wound sometimes Especially for people who Don't have that option. Don't have that support so I think it's awesome. I see posts all the time about this especially around this time of year about family members. Who really well? If you don't have a family you're my family now. Right and part of me is like a heartwarming but another pardon me that just rips my heart out. Because it's telling me that there is so much hurt out there that people feel like they need to open their door like you have a friendsgiving that anybody who doesn't have family that they can go to eight can go to and it's just they are performing acrobatics behind me right now. Silly dog goes. Yeah but yeah I. I am holidays when I was younger. It was a totally different thing When my mom died then everything kind of honestly everything kind of fell to shit us us? We didn't see her side of the family anymore. Non Dad's side of the family was all the way all the way out in like the Mid West area so and then when he started Dating then he would go spend time with her family and her kids and grandkids. And that's totally cool cool for him so then I had to figure out a place for myself and so I just made a place on. That's sometimes that's the answer to is if you you don't have that support there are people out there that will support you. That will be that lifeline for you and I find find that people who are being belittling towards you if you ignore them even if even if it is hurting is getting under skin if you don't give them the satisfaction of seeing that don't give that energy there they show themselves out they slowly cut themselves out of your life not feeding that if you're not feeding into their because they're they're pulling at you yeah trying to get you to react so that maybe there can be some conflict or whatever and if you don't feedback any of that energy they they tend. Dick usually tend to go their own way. And it's it's interesting because some of the tactics that people a us are very similar to those. I've seen at like pride where you have the people who are standing out front again. Getting back into that RELIG- religious aspect. You get people out front. Who are in intentionally trying to do harm by using scripture to attack others and they do they claim they do it out of love? It's not very loving and as somebody who has studied the scripture you ask them. Is this what you're God would do. Is this something and they. I always go back to the Old Testament and I'm like okay cool. That was the Old Testament. Show me something from the New Testament and don't have an answer. They don't have anything. Yeah those two books are very different. Very very different also depends on which version you're looking if you're looking at the King James version or placate COMMU International. Those are. They're just they're very different. They're polar opposites On how to handle things and as somebody who studied at one point to be a pastor yeah there if you can only find references to something in the Old Testament sorry. I think you're making a straw man argument stinking pastor tyler. Yeah well my charisma. I do have some decent charisma that can move people. I could see you. I could not doing that. Ed Get completely different. Yeah but when it comes down to uh-huh handling family if you're not out of closet yet I think in closing we just need to go often say do an audit what it is is something that is for your best good in safe for you right. I mean again. There's nothing that says you have to come out like grandiose statement. I'm out of the broom closet arms. You know spread out like you don't have to You can tell as many or as few people's you like but some people will some people will still experience some blowback back and so then But like I said with my blog post it dealt with what was specifically online harassment And the best ways to kind of circumnavigate MHM navigate them. I- cutting them outs either Cutting them out with giving them less and less access. Yeah you did a really good job with talked about limiting in putting them into a separate group of like a privacy settings Because honestly I've had to do that. You know I've had to do the same There were things that I didn't necessarily want to discuss in front of my cousins. Okay and so I put my cousins in PG thirteen. So I I have a China norm list of friends lists that that kind of I like to put things in two different places I think so I have like a list. That's just everybody so that I can get around facebook's ace books weird choice of how they do. Their home feeds I don't WanNa see this stuff. I WANNA see chronological stuff from my friends like my actual friends is not you know random stuff that you've decided I need to see I But then I also have things that are like all the friends that I went to school with their little they actually have greater access than Like some of my family. They could see more stuff than others and then Each of my family's because awesome adopted I have my biological families mothers and fathers side and then my adopt aside mothers and fathers side and then my husband's side You know so. They're we're all kind of put into their own segments for a couple of reasons one. I could either limit their access or I can give them a limited or we're very particular view that everybody else doesn't get to see it. You can target those targeted There's something that's family related and I want people to know about it and only the family not like my long list of friends and business associates and stuff that don't necessarily need to see these things So yeah and then. Of course there's the the ultimate in the thing is about social media you do not have to have all of your family or co workers. Are Everybody under the Sun. They do not have to be your friend on facebook. I recently Black somebody who is slipping my facebook page is like why is this person showing up as recommended friend and for those of you. You don't know this. If you have somebody who randomly just shows up on your they have like no connections. There is no friends in common. There's there's no reason you should be either. It's usually because they've been snooping your page and so I recognize somebody like Oh yeah As the saying goes not today Satan is like I am not dealing with this so I blocked them and there's.

"And welcome to another edition of Ravens. The crossroads I- mistress prime. I'm Tyler Matthews and today we're talking with Scorpio and you Are Actually are located what region I am located in Dumb Marva area which is Delaware Maryland. Virginia Area L.. Okay okay okay so I think one of further interviews and the you came up to Mary Meat and Grand Council this year. And I believe it's your I. It is welcome. Thank you says well great. Nice to meet you so Tell us a little bit about yourself. Probably the first thing I should say is that I am a priestess I've been working in the CRAFF Jeff to some degree for the past twenty some odd years and I kinda got started started. You know like a lot of I think teenagers do in the eighties and nineties. Ouija boards and terror here cards but I also saw an apparition when I was very young and and I had some other supernatural for experiences. That didn't didn't quite understand at the time and I wanted to understand them and that's what put me on the path that sounds. It's kind of familiar. You have a similar story. Yeah When I was a kid a isolating apparition ED scared loon but Jesus yes yes yes In my particular instance it was my great grandmother who has just passed and into. I was heading up the stairs to bed and towards the end she lived with us and we were taking care of her and right after she died her bedrooms. It's top of the stairs. I saw her full apparition like a billy ephemeral smoke smoke but I could see her face clearly. There was no color just white but somehow is able to see her face and she had her arms spread out and it seemed as issue is slowly drifting down the stairs and and I shut my eyes because I just knew that I was imagining things but when I opened my eyes is I noticed that not only is she still there but she was a few steps closer. I did not know so at the time whether it was my grandmother. Not so I turn on the lights in Iran How old were you about ten ten? So yeah that was my initiation. That's what got you started. Yes and so. Did you look for books or teacher or players friends that were also interested or all that stuff Like I said when we were younger we played with the and that was another reason why I was kind of skeptical but that was actually her because I was discouraged from Using such donations fools of the quote Unquote Devil. But I also watched bewitched switched in I dream of Jeannie and magic. Couldn't possibly be bad right so I continued and continued and finally. When I got old enough I found a local bookstore that was called Bell Book and candle and I walked in? That store absolutely fell in love. The lady behind the counter was so super witchy. She was so nice and and she wanted to help me and I was so overwhelmed by I think at that point I kind of felt like I knew I was on the the right path so of course you know you do the thing where you know. You're looking through all the books in your feverishly searching for or answers and it took me a long time to realize that at least for me that search never ends. That's true that's a I think that's Most which is will say that you know we're always learning it's a constantly evolving. You're constantly evolving in your practices constantly evolving absolutely and so lou curious when you went into the books. Did you get that sense of. I've come home yet. Yeah that's that's a common thing to like I I felt I think volunteering at some point when she first started on the. Uh It's a it's a heartening feeling when you get a really really is and it leaves such an impression on you for the rest of your life and it's something that I feel like people need to carry with them so they can always remember so currently currently What is your position and Are you with a group. And what can you tell us about that. I am I'm I'm with a an practicing. Currently was a carbon On the East Coast. I am an elder priestess within the group I've I've been with him for approximately thirteen years and I quite enjoy them They helped me meet my husband husband. With in a moons. Turner of getting wrapped up in May Maple belting. I had met him and it was a very fast relationship and it was right from the beginning. Nothing Mike I had ever experienced so I feel like I owe everything to my. HP because he is my everything and and for those who don't know what HP means doesn't mean Harry Potter Priestess and for the record I am not really a Harry Potter Fan. I recognize that it's a fabulously written book and everyone loves it. but I I need a little bit more grit. Well actually let me clarify something. HP traditionally usually means high priest HPS usually means high priestess. Yes I'm sorry. I was being a little lazy there but my understanding. Mr Yes ask clarification upon the cliff. Thank you and so Being with this group something uh-huh something drew you to come to marry neat. Yes okay. Could you tell us a little bit about that Well where do I start That sounds like such a simple question. Part of the role of a second degree elder priestess in our tradition is to reach outside of the circle and make connections I had a deep yearning desire to make connections with other witches across the country. Because I feel like because we were like minded. We are the antibodies to the earth. And that we must stick together and we must grow stronger so colleague seem.

"And that works for many people but I mean I guess that's what makes us different is like I. I was raised in a very public pagan space. Rose and I don't think I was ever solitary and so that's a very different experience for a lot of people and so I really enjoy it. I really enjoy working with people in meeting people and all that and a lot of public circles you. The rituals can be lake. Nick pretty basic a very generic very but you were there to learn and to use get people educated and if you WANNA connect deeper is when you start making those face to face connections like perhaps with covens and things like that and so that's where I kind of see it as like if you wanna get deeper you can. You can get deeper options and and so. I just wanted to say that that we have to start to get organized and we have to bring people together and to to get the word out out and that way there's not so much fear right and celebrate our differences between each group. Sometimes I feel like I hear people talking in was it was I asked you about the correct order for the elements to the directions because book says reading had What was it east and South Flett? So instead of of the normal way that I had learned it they had a fire to east and air to south. It's all different and you can go to any ritual and quarter will be set up completely different. I think that's so I mean. We all have the elements balanced life. But how we do that is. I know it's different for Buddhists to the direct learning opportunity. I believe yeah going off in accepting that okay ethic courts. The same thing but they're doing differently is in celebrating. Those differences is a big thing that I think outreach will help Interfaith worker we spoke with market a little bit about that and She was talking about being able to talk with people of other faiths and things like that but at the core a lot books I've read. I'm seeing similarities between so many different religions because when I was younger I did studied a bunch of different religions and a lot more similarities than differences. People would just take that step back. There's a reason that things such there there are so many various interfaith organizations And the likes to participate in those for that reason but like the parliament of the world's religions is one of the biggest ones and it's amazing go and show share like you know here's who we are and they're like well here's who we are and then you can kind of go. We're like we do stuff like that We share things like that or okay. We do something similar to this and and connect with each other on those similarities. It's wonderful experience so I I hope you have more experience than I love doing. Interfaith work 'cause I always see whenever I don't see you know wherever I see other religious groups doing and then there's no paganism representative. I see a missed opportunity and for gay pride for example all the other churches are marching. It's called there. No no in. And they're already couple of reasons and so there's their ways ways to get out there and there's opportunities and we gotta just let People Maui. We're here in it. That's interesting to me because Sumio. LGBT people find ways into paganism exactly a law. Allow that someday at least for me. Because I didn't feel accepted by the Church for being gay and from your perspective and your parents were probably. My parents are great lake. It's and that's another whole side story but you know it's it's hard to have super super super supportive parents which is not echoed in a lot of royal bt circles and even pagan circles of course either. So that's it's good to have a support group of friends family. Anybody that is there to support you for who you are and where he believe. Let's let's definitely awesome to see more outreach to those communities from as well so I think about it and it's like what does seriously slimmest opportunity that we are in the like pride Parades Rainbow Pentecostals and snake a have a list of event and vase on local handed out the wires in I. I know that members do march but they don't march on behalf the half cock so I'm like Why is that happened a been dishonesty prides where you have different churches going off and trying to say hey? We're not like those other churches that scorned you that that hurt you and ray there. And that's great that they're there and they're getting people That's wonderful but just to let people know that this has always been an option. We've always been supportive work hog and the other element is there are obt deities. Oh yeah and so many people growing up LGBT don't realize that there are indeed he's like that that's what I love about. Paganism is diversity of Didi. There's all there's a Da for you. And I mean uh first year at Penn account was this year too and there are some groups that are just like your worshipping. The Deity created graded by his ex boyfriend. Who is the Faira that's awesome? It was just stuff like that. I'm like because Pharaohs could elevate people to eighty says and his boyfriend had been killed. I believe rounder once things and so they worshipped this deity and it was. It's one of those tax. Have my things like beautiful boy Supporter or something like that. Iraq did his temple or something like Oh aw again. You guys haven't been gone. It's definitely experience on the list on the list for a while. Yeah Oh yeah we're GONNA go back again The give these tags ago era ribbons go underneath your tags and so different rooms. You go into hospitality. Rooms different workshops you go to vendors just random people hand you these tags put ribbons him. They go underneath. Yeah Take Yeah. Have you been it exactly but I mean these things get so long that people have to wrap them around them. Said like bandelier see now you got them wrapped around again a lot of fun so if you guys do decide to go or whatever combination or whatever her let us know we'll definitely keep in touch But I just that came to mind when we were talking about. LGBT the in paganism and things like you know definitely very Pride friendly at P.. Con Radical Ferry. Yeah Well Pagan Line. It's definitely very very positive experience. In my opinion those arts in it's one of the few the pagan communities been one of the few groups that I felt safe being around and being myself growing up in a very religious area a very Christian religious area. It was troubling at times. So it's you've got some good ideas I think you'll do. Well definitely definitely thank you guys for the love and support. Of course I wanNA thank you guys for taking the time to speak with save. Save really appreciated. You guys agreeing to come speak with us. I know popped it on last minute. Like Hey I want to be in our the PUCK and I was like well. I can't say no. It's kind of my job. Should be honest. You could have said no you have the right to you know. Select as you choose but we appreciate so much. Evil took time to speak with us. Thank you know.

"To bring it back to the floor of the covenant of the membership during Grand Council and discussed the issue and then we head to bring into vote so during it went very well but if it goes to vote this is a matter of process process if it goes to vote. Does that blocking member loops like as in if they're blogging based on the overall percentages as of the voting membership that is quorum of the grand council and those who are carrying proxies for. You're the blogger Jane Block. That was funny. Well then why would it go to vote. If they weren't blocking. I'm so confused. That's how it was the surprising factor one. The one individual who had the greatest concern was brought back react to the to the fronts of you know where the first officer was in the recorder wise and they were able to review the whole new statement the proposal and the changes that have been made to it and she had a greater understanding she was not one of the people that then voted to block it. So that A. K.. So really what it was. She completely misunderstood what the proposal was. She had a at the at the original onset when when they were expressing their concerns and they felt that it was more than what they could handle and they didn't understand you know they felt that it might be a burden financially to them. You know there was just too many misunderstandings. And they feel that they're in a region of the United States where things are just difficult right now and and it's because they're that's their perception and we have to take them at their word check but it's still has to be the overall intention of the Covenant to grow members even in their local council. So one of the things I will do when I go and visit is asked. How are we going to grow our numbers and this region you know? You're in a a large metropolitan area. There's got to be far more. which isn't wiccans in this region that would be interested in the covenant of the Goddess? How do we? How do we get outreach to those folks how do we bring them in? And how can we help empower you and your region to feel more secure more part of the common everyday world where you don't feel that there's negativity fifty towards us in some form or fashion. I agree just that's can't wait till you come out over the phone L.. Says there's five five local councils in California yes yes so that's like almost half of all the LC's yes the majority of LC's are in the state of California. That is correct. Are there still too in Texas. No there's only one local council in Texas okay Florida has one local council. Okay hills and rivers is in the lowest midden Pennsylvania Ohio West Virginia Regis Fars Understand. Yeah it it covers multiple state right right which is that's a large chunk of territory for council and that's it that's all we had? We've lost so many of vocal council so one of my other books is is actually to have some outreach. To former members of those other local councils that are no longer affiliated early aided with the covenant of the Goddess and they asked them how can we either bring you back in as members at an individual level. Or how can we re-stimulate and help you. Reestablish your local council and get it thriving again and bring new members in some of the can the national board award dude help Sula Tate. Those things to happen. Some of those are national numbers to they. Were in local. Councils moved to National Sean. Right so I know like Dogwood just recently went out in Georgia and it'd be nice to which was a Very old local council One that everglades moon was originally part of them. Hide off because the two states are so large especially overdone the majority of the which is in Wiccans and Florida live in the Tri County areas. That are all in the very south part of Florida so it made more sense for for Florida to have local council. I would like to see Florida. Have more than one. Local Council just like the state of California so space for them absolutely absolutely. There are lots of large cities the Orlando region could have a central local council. We could have a West local council in the Tampa Area Jacksonville's and large city again. There are witches wiccans throughout the Florida that We're not being able able to reach out to and tell them about the coming out of the car. This and maybe bring new members in. That's another concern that I have that I will reach out to the cups Organization with the Church in Fort Lauderdale. They have recently changed. Changed the name of the Pagan Pride. Event to the maybe Bonn harvestfestival. Let's say you're telling us and this was a little concerning. They did this last year and the numbers that Pagan Pride or horrible. And I think that if you're not really promoting something thank specifically Pagan Pride to encourage many people come out that you start to lose your viability in in the community overall. I think that it's important that I know the one of the gentlemen within that organization within the church a facilitates cops there is also a member of MLC. The and so I'll reach out to him and say what can we do to bring back the name Pagan Pride so that we can encourage more people to come because whereas if or the coming in the goddess is going to host booth there. It would be nice to be able to do enough outreach and meet new people and talk about what the coming out of. The Countess has offers in terms of membership so that we can hopefully bring on New People. I've got my job. Cut Out for me Teflon sells you have Tiffany any events that are coming up. Yes actually I have been asked by COPS to For My coven to be efficient of the bolt celebration in February. So we're looking forward to that. It's even nicer or more fulfilling. Now that I will also be the National First Officer of the Covenant of the Goddess to be able to do some outreach during that particular period of time and maybe encourage people to seek us out for membership in the covenant of the Goddess. It sounds great. I wanted to thank you again again for taking the time to speak with us. Do you have any social media or any sense that you'd like to help you just a yeah. We don't hear any particular. Social social media have created like facebook page at this point but you can find us at. WWW DOT lavender dragons dot com or you. You can look up.

"Open to membership ACOG. This is a small step toward. I think lowering the barriers for membership and hopefully eliminating some of the perception of membership in cog is just kind of an elitist club and the it's easy to be not qualified. You know ways that didn't have a real specific Grounding in what do we tell somebody I mean eligible for priests decrease piece credentials or elder credentials. Still mostly within caught up to your covent vouch for or your local council out for so you know. There wasn't an single objective standard that we could say to somebody outside. WHO's interested in an individual membership? CONCOC- here's what you gotta do. Right right was confounding and elitist certainly perceived that way. Even if it wasn't intended to be that way uh-huh I think originally congregated as a way to help ensure that the people in cog would know enough of one another to know that we could be safe together mm-hmm because it was formed at a time when the community was not predominantly out or even that it was very safe to be so an initial oh networking between coincides members often done through kind of high priests and high priestesses and so kind of were taken a long road to changing some of the original model of cogs organization and some of the practices of how you communicate keep between covens and how you know with one another because for anybody that's come up in particular. How many particular Wiccan Practices Trans? It's very clear that you don't just reach out to other covens stocks and the or make arrangements of whether or not someone visit for ritual nod or things and our community has grown beyond some of the conventions of how do we explored. Sheriff Practices Kisses There's a lot of open festivals. A lot of enter coven contact them. Ability between covens practices now and so we're slowly trying to see find ways in which could you help open up to the productivity. We think we need to. I think it's I think it's a wonderful change. I think a lot of the things that were discussed in. What little I was in Green Council. This time Was it was really good. So I'm looking forward to seeing how things develop over the next year. Thanks me too. And I'm I'm very hopeful for the future. I think I think it could go.

"Contact seems to present As the slightly female side of Androgynous nut no But different people go contactor partnership in different ways now for summit something they might hear some they can. At least a meditative. Practice may see Some people just feel energy some people you know literally have a variety of ways in which contact presents so for me in a meditative state. I can kind of see figure. I can feel energy of my contact and my contact act as a particular method times of What I call colocation because the first at the time I encountered her during training didn't seem like the first time I'd encountered necessarily I I don't know that I understand the history of that real well yet but there was an immediate familiarity and she came right up to me really close look me in the eyes and then turn around and I was sitting turnaround that sat down in me and was like looking out through my eyes and feel and how my fingers week old and make yourself at home but not surprising but it didn't feel intrusive. Okay fortunately I didn't learn how to different relationship but it was interesting because she does that at different times to To went on working in the bone here Did that at one point when I was at a A hearing for my work doing trial and so I think it's a way you for a partnership to develop That she can see things through my eyes a bit and feel things the way I would feel them and for me I can. In some level the way she would see things what occurs to her at that time and what it feels like like so my very contact. I haven't heard a lot of other searcy that that's part of their interaction with their contact us on the only way they might contact and I interact but at the same initial exposure. There's an opportunity during research training for Potentially contact to come forward doesn't always happen for people right down right but When that happened with me This some of that context started happening ahead of the descriptive narrative that was going on and So for me I felt familiar. Not Intrusive again. You know something that I welcomed. And as I talked to other people to seem to be a little distinctive 'cause other fury sears ship apprentices of explored with you talk about how they perceived their contact. This hasn't been kind of one of the things So I don't know whether it's good or bad or just different or you know I just take it as indicative because of one of the ways that but my inner city you mentioned that she made her presence known you while you were in the middle of a Business situation actual work since you. How did that go did did raw? She's looking at the process and looking at the materials Israel's in front of me and Kind of hurting her narrative of it was. Oh this is kind of how it works because I think she seemed to wear that I potentially enforcing laws and why was there was to try and explain to judge what went wrong kind of violated the law. what obligations. The other party should have to make it right. Hello what kinds of action should be taken to clean up pollution to stop powerful practices and until she was like. Wow Okay so yeah now seems a little odd you. There's a lot of books involved you but but I think what she was getting out of it. She was seeing that. I was trying to take the principle of what things should be like that. It didn't get represented. Okay that got harmed the the the the way in which this part of the world should walk into creation was getting interfered with it. Maybe That I was trying to show someone who would make a decision. Here it is. Here's the view of what we're wrong here. And here's what's needed to restore at least the compliance with the law which is not a complete restoration by most of her magical perspectives but could be an important instep To produce harm or to clean up problems and help make things right but she was curious piece from this book over here and this comes from this thing over here and then you talk about it you try and convince them right so just curiously. But she didn't necessarily stop your flow. Hello while you're doing what you're doing or did it. Well she didn't mean to stop my flow being aware of her presence was distracting. Okay all right. Luckily it was for trying to do a good job to I don't know that I'll take it took away from my to to conduct a hearing It also just was a I think she she was looking talking to see. So what's this part of your your stuff about right and this is a big part of how you spend your time and for me I connected to My values of of my spiritual life That I have an opportunity to try and help Shape shape people's behaviour sometimes using Force sometimes using persuasion Most of the cases I have settled and I continually surprised at how many people shake my hand on the way out of a settlement conference when they came in just knowing that that we've alleged that they violated the law and and they're still probably violation of the law now until they resolve with us right. So it's prising to be stolen. People Shake Mahathir under leaving. They say thank you and I think it's because of shown them why we thought something went wrong and the opportunity to so basically not have to see me again a situation but also the opportunity to say you. Can you can fix this right at least in some way. And there's a a lot of people that actually like the opportunity to do better to do better or to some people come and really sheepishly people coming early angry right but however they come in I try to show them an opportunity to at least resolve this with my agency and I to understand why we're saying things went wrong And to to acknowledge the that we value their ability to resolve with us right. We'd rather do that than go to hearing. We'd rather do that than being in the position. Arguing to a third party about about what went wrong or went to girl home even though it has to be clear. We're willing to do that if if need be champion. Chat resolve another west. But it's a little indication or view to me even before very contact or other stuff like that that in letting my own values informed my work can have ways in which there's a real positive impact and it isn't just they. Yeah Wow that guy is just kinda walking out there and you know 'cause I don't introduce myself in that context of course as a Sierra which or a wiccan. I just the lawyer involved in and maybe some more subtle ways encourage positive outcomes and if I can't greet them than I the issue Because I think also there's a brightness to trying to work on People might violate the law and environmental laws to see if we can get correct people responsible for causing problems To be responsible for fixing issues should not fall on the rest of us to clean up behind folks so you know my context been. There hasn't early interfered with the work. I think helped inform it so I think some of the process process preceded contact as well. But it's been interesting. What is something that you would like to see changing in the greater raider painting community there? Is there anything I mean. Maybe there was a lot of aspects of the pagan community. I think we're You know we've got challenges of communicating to I think the growing aspects.

"And I told her I had an stuff she she never followed up herself so it was interesting. Getting kind of like roundabout intro to the craft community but down the basically gave me Russell's a history of witchcraft drawing down the moon and spiralling dance So I took him home and the week later came back with them and they said okay so has gone on and I said well of read them what. They're really interesting and they go okay. Another set of books three because I think they're trying to determine like some many people might you know I kinda seems a little interested are illegal but you know we we. We want to make sure that there's a chance for him to do some independent. You know reading up on it and see and be able to gauge gateway interest over the time so it was fun but by belting they were going to do camping gathering a group just outside of town do a ceremony there over the weekend to celebrate Bill Tamed. And I get invited along and became a member of what was called the tendon navigators lodge a group of people. Some of Georgian training Georgian tradition training of through second degree that had formed a group and were relatively early stages. I met them during the first year on there they were starting out To basically former on group and the one of the really interesting I would say benefits for me of being there early on as as they were starting to do that. Even though they're much more experienced send me one of the group meetings that we have was they wanted to go over what they learned in training about the basic ceremonial steps of a ritual. Because a lot of them are relatively standardized many traditions because they wanted to to determine woman what did they understand those steps to mean. Why did we do them? and to formulate basically a kind of core ritual format for the group okay. So one of my earliest experiences in the craft was sitting down with people who are significantly more experience than I was Going over ritual and detail tale. Why do we do that? What is it mean? What do you see when that happens or feel? That happens What does this represent when we say these words and so you had a really kind of I open? Experience went well beyond any books and really in some ways beyond a lot of early training to to dig into ritual tack back and kind of get a good view of how ritual works in some forms of the craft. So it was kind of my basic introduction A little bit of the event because they were turning me saying well. What are you gonna ask sure what to think? But I've done originals with him so I tried to participate it was a non hierarchical group that really relied on participation. And it's one of the best group formats for me ever since Beat Fair coven. To the extent it can be operates a non hierarchical manner with its members But after we started that way I remember asked My my spouse idea to formerly be high priest and Priestess Coven to help resolve problems that might come up or to provide so at some other forms of leadership so We're a little bit of a hybrid in that regard now but we still relied deeply on having a very calm known Americal cooperative model of how to run the coven and make decisions for what we're going to try to well. That was very interesting. You're starting your path. I had realized realized that. Have some similarities on some aspects Not Wanting to now you mentioned that you and your spouse are both breath high priest priestess so we'd have breakfast a little while ago and I asked about if your spouse else's also pagan I didn't realize that she was high priestess senior account as well. So that's that's interesting. She was one of the two people initially met in that hat and counter. I just described. Oh US onto a Hannifin. Okay okay. That's very cool Moving even Ford You also had mentioned that early on you chose your name KANU and We heard a little a bit of your description during breakfast. Curious share the history of the name with our listeners as well you know draining the navigators lodge The indicate that wanted to do some training that they would share that with me most of it be based on the church and chat a a little more open in terms of The their approach to it since they weren't strictly organized as George Coven one of the things that they expressed to me was. That could be very important to choose a magical name Gave me some of the rationales about why and I kind of went off to think about it. A little bit And my my mundane life. My surname is very walsh and so As I was starting to say what would kind of speak to me or represent median but magical way mm-hmm voice had a deep interest in family and someone genealogy and things like that so that was at least one of the do things over mind and I went over to library and was kind of hunting around and thinking what you know. Maybe I can find something interesting here and I found on the shelf An English Welsh Welsh English dictionary and actually just was looking through Welsh words seeing if there was something that might kind of come out to me. that I could check on uncontactable and as a Zippo through for whatever reason This jumped out at me and well. I think the western and she should be different. I'm I'm seeing the word KANU new on the page and met sing thing and while I don't do that frequently or I'm not performer in in any sense Singing his part of one of my ritual skills and one of the things that I enjoy being able to offer from time to time In my magical life and I also I thought was representative of an expressive energy. That I was real comfortable with as a magical name so Breath trialed it out in one of the next gatherings and in going through the The early processes with the navigators lodge that there was an opportunity to basically choose a magical name in ritual And I was comfortable enough with it. Cheated them than this really stuck with me. Over the years I think that's probably the way Predominantly known and the Pagan community. So curious which came first betrayer coven or membership of cock well. A member of COG before betray Coven was formed. Formed a calm when I was doing some Grad school up in the northeast. The I was Charleena Connecticut to participate in a coven there known as aura. Boris Isis that coven was formed out of to study. Eddie groups one knows named Laura. Boris the other invasiveness. That have been started by. Beth bone blossom when she came over from California and lived in the northeast from it and the the kind of carrying on people from this study groups formed a coven and it had joined cog The had had a member who was the primary contact and did almost all the interaction with cog and about three months before I joined. I think recall correctly. I was told that she moved down to Maryland around. And so the coven was just doing their own. Coven things and almost a year later when we were together. One time somebody said and I didn't I didn't know anything about this until this point we remember cog or something right something she did and she moved. I guess we never really asked her. What is there something something we're supposed to do? That's members cog and so You Know Puerto Rico and I said well we'll see if we can find out and at the time there was a north local council of COG So we found out about it. We found out about an upcoming meeting and we decided to go so we drove over to the meeting And the the folks there were like wow great to see you. We didn't know what happened. We haven't heard from you know while you're provisional as terms of membership status because you missed some stuff but if you WANNA keep participating it's good to see right and we said Yeah Okay and an interesting.

"Interfaith work and they and these people people interface as the other religions they will come to bat for you if you need it and we should come to bat for them when they needed and COBB should issue a statement every time. A mosque is bobbed or anything. Like that particularly in the United States and some people say let's political that's what crop was four right right. It's so confusing to me when I hear people complain that it's too political and it's like even understand if it's too political when maybe not the place for you Hauer Hauer people's lives to political. Not Safe you know to not say something. Well those two things one thing being. Excuse me wet being of religious attacks so minority religions. Because that's what we're about is our rights as argument. So what and now that. We're real prison. An actor presents awesome interfaith even more reason to be issue super savings of support and policies about religious things and Dan as far as the kids. Being put in cages. Let's purely humanitarian thing is transcends politics agreed families these are meant to kids are meant to be their parents. That's sort of the way the species evolved. Thank you very much so I think it's obscene and I know that a lot of people think it's obscene and I don't think it's political to say that it's obscene to separate them from the parents so those two things in particular. There may be others that you could. You could quarrel about you. Know taken aside or the two for those people that don't like it. There are two left at the to progressive or whatever but uh those two things as far as I'm concerned mugs worthless if they can't say about most things well so so the topic with regards to cog so the membership has seen a bit of a decline for it. I'm being really nice. You're the hemorrhage and there could be reasons. I don't know how much follow up. There's been with regards to that because I've been staying out of the grand in council but what is if somebody who has not a lot of people I don't really know about cock not really and Because there's new generations coming up in the community Pagans which is a lot of them have absolutely no idea what cog is yes. We have a website. Yes we have a facebook page back in the day. We had a my space age but people don't necessarily know who we are as an organization and when they have heard of us it hasn't always been positive. We have a lot of negative things to kind of so so we want to. So if Carl interested in reclaiming You know memberships or or getting people to start the process What's one thing you think? Think that maybe call. It should consider doing to make that happen. Very much of the meeting was about exactly what you're talking about okay. So I don't have a pat answered still under but we're we're talking about restructuring and have the ministration separate from the governing word so so to speak and having representatives to that board from each local councils and so it's really coming from the ground up which is what it should in my opinion so I think it's it's undergoing changes And we're even talking about having a i. I don't want what they've surname. I think was like a recruitment officer something like that. I think there was something of that nature and they were talking about brushing said they retired. All these places I could could talk. I would love to around the covers for Kong but you go get your act together before I feel like I wanNA squander Mike Goodwill these people and plus that's the only thing and this is a kinda universal not just pagan related. But when somebody screws up and it's a real those big blow ups about it in his horrible horrible which just happened with one particular recently and that's what people remember no matter how many things should try to do to make up for its they. The reputation is you've made the statement stupid. Save black lives matter we lost a lot of covenant and have we lost a lot of members because of that and I hit I and I was the most obnoxious put over interfaith rips ceiling about that with the falling meeting we. This is so hard to undo. Guys have no idea how much trouble he was making a lot of really good us a lot of the actors and we're trying to win the back that one of the things that I did that year because I was carrying a Lotta proxies and one of the one of the covenants up in the Seattle Seattle area but happened with that. I didn't even hear about that. That's the whole. Will you mean their local council last years ago in a different. I think this is one of the comments. That was a member of that right now. Listening to make remain to answer but this now has remained a member of the Covenant Large but I have to have a proxy so they take the so they wanted. I said well what we're GONNA do. Is I'm going to propose that. We have social justice committee right well the way they accepted that but the way it was implemented was not really practical to have social justice blog. And I feel like you. That's not really it. And and poor Magana Zan that ended up doing everything that was done. Didn't get any other contributions and I had said riot friend. I'm not putting for blogger where you have to write for the interfaith but I did still want to be involved and I promise these people in this common and others that I would would it systems on that at the next meeting. Promise it'll happen but it's a promise that will address it and we did and we did make a nice is better statement. But that's not what people are GonNa remember the revised one. They're gonNA remember the old one. The old one is itchy race you know. I don't think saw the website anywhere anything but there's a policy section but anything was posted on the Internet is forever. Let's let's just four wasn't anything that was negative. That group or individual did is forever it's forever connected with. They're the ones that well. Yeah we are the wants that and it was a screw up but we also XYZ during and we also learned from that and have room beyond that try to remedy that and now so far has not proved very effective. But I hope it will at some point and that's another reason why keep carrying on about mount. We gotta make statements when kids are taken away when not skip mopped It's it's disheartening. To see.
