My Trad mates have put out a podcast, Betwixt and Between! Totally give it a listen, I love these two. They happen to be my two wonderful and amazing teachers as well! Give it a listen, and hopefully they’ll put out more and more podcasts that share their vast amount of knowledge!
I’ve decided that I’d like to do a bit each week on what I’m currently reading and/or listening to, just a basic recommendation. I read quite a few blogs and I am beginning to pick back up the podcast train, plus my reading list of books is quite large, so I should easily be able to toss up something each week. This first week, I’d like to start with blogs of personal friends and trad-mates!
First is Amarth’s blog, Sacred Grove. Amarth is one of my best friends for a few years now and, if I were to have a partner in magic and witchery, it’d be him. While we butt heads a lot, he’s always there for me and he has wonderfully insightful views. His blog is just a wee one right now, but I bet soon he’ll be kicking my ass (or at least we can motivate one another to post with some frequency). Soon I hope we may start a joint blog focusing on our exploits together, as we tend to make strange things happen when working magic together.
Next, I’d like to introduce you to the wonderful Grace over at The Little Victorian. Grace is my wonderful teacher over at The Forest’s Edge and is both an amazing witch and one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever had the honor of meeting. Her blog isn’t regularly updated, but she posts in spurts and all of her posts are fantastic, and her home is absolutely wonderful.
Following Grace, we have Castiel and her blog, Unfocused. Castiel is a wonderful woman who is also a leader in our tradition and great friend’s with Grace. Her blog as a very wonderful look at her personal life and her spiritual practices. Her daughter is an absolute darling and I’ve met her full household and I may want to kidnap her big beautiful white German Shepard, just saying!
Finally, we have Jessica at WildWood Naturals. Jessica has been with the trad a bit longer than I, and her blog as some lovely perspectives along with some awesome products! I’d definitely recommend heading over there to check it out!
For my listening this week, I’m going back through Standing Stone and Garden Gate and I absolutely love this podcast! I also happen to love listening to the different perspectives, as I’m almost caught between the concepts of ‘thinking pagans and working witches’ and I also love Juniper’s voice!
For reading, I’m about to get into Ogam: Weaving Word Wisdom. I haven’t started yet, that will be happening later tonight, and so I’ll update next Friday on it!
I hope you guys like this type of post, let me know in the comment section!
So my access to the beloved Divinity section of the Vanderbilt Library is restricted until I can get back to Nashville and get an alumni library card. Which won’t be a huge deal except my transmission isn’t playing nice. Sad day. However, I do still have Triumph of the Moon and The Pagan Christ checked out. Sadly, if I don’t renew Triumph by around the 16th or so, I’m going to start accruing fines, so I have to go early next week, Goddess willing my darned little car gets fixed! I don’t have access to The Spiral Dance at the moment, but its on the list of things to check back out 🙂
In other news, I’ve been listening to The Wigglian Way, which is BAD FREAKING PAGAN ASS! Seriously though, these guys are pretty awesome, and their Canadian accents are quite pleasant to listen to (if I listen too long I start to bleed over a bit lol). I am on episode 8 right now, and I’ll listen until I catch up! Mojo from the Wigglian way is also the husband of one of my favorite bloggers, The Witch of Forest Grove, otherwise known as Sarah, and she puts out fabulous material as well as having a shop and a podcast of her own.
I am also trying to contact a few groves and circles in the Clarksville/Nashville area. No response yet, but we shall see! I am also debating trying out The Grey School, although there is a small tuition, it is nonprofit. Needing a job first, obviously. I am nervous, to say the least, about online classes that you have to pay for, but I’ve heard good reviews, AND these guys aren’t teaching anything with divinity, but with the arcane in general, which makes it a bit more acceptable to me, I suppose. Not sure on anything yet!
Hoping to get that article of Pagan/Warcraft spirituality comparison for any pagan gaming nerds out there on Sunday!
