Wild Witches Episode 1: Drawing Down the Moon

Wild Witches Episode 1: Drawing Down the Moon

I wanted to post this conversation between myself and two of my favorite witches, Moondancer and Enku from our Wild Witches Year and a Day class as a bit of lagniappe for y’all listeners. In this discussion we talk about several topics around witchcraft traditions discussed in the book Drawing Down the Moon by Margot Adler and go on to discuss other topics such as witchcraft traditions, and even talk about QAnon and the Tarot is a closed practice debacle.

Black Lives Matter

It is important that we acknowledge the fact that Portland, Oregon is located in the traditional homelands of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Watlala Bands of Chinook, Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other indigenous nations who made their homes along the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. It is our intention in recognizing these communities to honor their lives, their legacies, their elders, their descendants, and the vibrancy and importance of their ongoing work—and to stand in solidarity with them at every opportunity.
