It may not be as sensational as the Halloween witch stories you’re about to hear all October, but in this episode we tell our down-to-earth tales about the varied paths we took to discovering Pagan spirituality. Catholic school, Wiccan and Druid rituals, mythology, theater, drum circles, witchcraft books, Jewish heritage, Hindu deities, and love spells gone awry each play a part in the journeys we took to where we are today.
In this episode, we wade into the difficult emotions of guilt and shame. What are the differences? Is there ever a redeeming purpose to these feelings? How do they each relate to embarrassment? How do we reconcile the inner sacred with the rest of our messy lives? There may be no easy formula to unravel the pain of loss, body image struggles, and the shadow side of perfectionism, but at least there is the Zen of figure modeling.
