Is Witchcraft a Religion? Episode 27

March 11, 2018

(We sing a lot in this episode. Forewarned is fore armed!)

 

Rocking a wimple.

 

 

 

 

 

After having a “conversation” with Cory of New World Witchery via the magic of podcast editing about our new favorite topic—Community!—Betwixt and Between ask the question, is Witchcraft a religion? And then, what is religion? And then, can we sing this entire episode in the style of Gregorian chant? It gets pretty deep pretty fast. Enjoy!

 

Cory thoughts and responses: I’m sure you all know how to find https://newworldwitchery.com/

 

 

 

 

 

 

So it turns out there really aren’t women or musicians in the Bayeux Tapestry (there are three!) —it mostly just depicts people becoming King and killing each other. Between was thinking of the Bayeux Tapestry-inspired artwork from the opening credits of Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

Have a (hilarious) tour of the real Bayeux Tapestry HERE.

 

If you haven’t read Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett, you should. And you should also watch this delightful animated version of it:

Since we talked about Sufism, here is some Sufi info:

Here is both a link to the Christian miracle school in CA we referenced, and to the very well written article through which we discovered it:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grain Goddess from the Kiddo Imbolc ritual.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a link to the page where we found the song “New Life’s Coming,” which is what we sang while we danced in circles around our seed Goddesses.
