Random Acts of Kindness

Just what kind of a world DO we want? I think most of us really do have an answer to that. The bigger question is how do we achieve it. New Age people would tell you that the world IS changing - the paradym is shifting away from violence fear and selfishness and toward caring and something that is more on the Soul level. But, like all upheavals - changes for the better are met with resistance from the other perspective; thus the increase in violence and chaos that we know all too well. And what…See More

A Lammas Celebration

Blessed Lammas, everyone! At this Sabbat many Wiccans and Pagans celebrate the First harvest. This Sabbat is about the cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth -- the grain god dies, but will be reborn again in the spring. Depending on your tradition, you may also observe this Sabbat as the day of the Celtic craftsman god, Lugh. Lugh was known to the Celts as a god of craftsmanship and skill -- in fact, he was known as the Many-Skilled God, because he was good at so many different things. Take…See More

The Sacred Traveler

Here we are, in the middle of summer; it's time to go out and see the world! As the song says, "A week in Paris will ease the bite of it", but the Sacred Traveler tries to go a bit deeper. The Sacred Traveler looks for the transcendental, the numinous, making time off from his day gig a life learning process or even an exercise in self-realization. Well, what is it that attracts people to places on this level? We'll take a look at the connection between Earth Spirituality and the many…See More

A Midsummer Celebration

Happy Midsummer, everyone! The sun is high in the sky, the air is all warm and friendly. Let's stay up real late, then we can build some fires and roll them down the hills!. It's been done forever, it's still being done now and it will always be done. We'll talk about where the word Litha comes from and what the holiday means for modern Pagans. Also, interestingly, Midsummer continues to be very important in mainstream societies in different cultures around the world! There are even some sects…See More

Fruit Magick

Have you ever thought about the role that Fruit plays in myth and magick? Well, this week we'll compare apples to oranges. Fruit appears in myths from around the world. Often it is a symbol of abundance, associated with goddesses of fertility, plenty, and the harvest. And, as you may expect, many of the most significant fruits in world mythology, such as the apple, have different meanings to different cultures. We'll take a short look at many of these. Also, we'll learn how To Use Fruit…See More

Amulets and Talismans

This week's show is dedicated to a specific part of the World of Magick; Amulets and Talismans. What's so great about talismans, or amulets? Simply the fact that they've always been around and we use them to this very day. In fact people in mainstream religions knowingly use them. To start we're going to try to delinate the difference between an amulet and a talisman. Then we'll look at examples of amulets and talismans down the ages. Then, I'll have a story, where objects are doing magickal…See More

Leprechauns and Other Wee Folk

Have you seen them? It's springtime, and Fearies abound. Let's see if we can't catch us one! The Leprechaun is one of the major images that the Mainstream Culture has of what a Feary is, or what a Feary looks like. The other, of course, is Disney's Tinkerbell. Whatever Pagan path you may be following, I'm sure I don't have to tell you that neither of those images fullfills the whole tradition of the Fearie. But anyway, the Leprechaun has a pretty interesting story by itself (or Himself - come…See More

Mystery Cults

This week let's go way back in time to talk about Mystery Cults! Mystery religions were religious cults in Ancient Greece and Rome. Participation was reserved to initiates and secrecy was kept as to the particulars of the initiation and the cult practice in general. But how did these sects function within their societies? Were they accepted? Were there conflicts? Talking just about this one aspect of life in Ancient Greece and Rome can give great insight into how people back then lived their…See More

Music In Ritual

I think a lot about music and the power that music has. So this week, let's talk about the role that music plays in ritual! Music was important to the Chinese philosopher, Confucious, as it has been for shamans around the world and down the ages. In fact I have a little story that tell us just exactly how music came to the earth way back when. And central to music is Rythm, singing and Dance. So we'll talk about all that stuff. And finally, we'll look at ways to write and create effective…See More

Spring Cleaning

It's time for Spring Cleaning! The idea of Spring Cleaning actually goes all the way back to ancient Egypt. We'll take a look at why Spring has become the time when we Clean House.And, while House Cleaning IS TERRIBLY, BORINGLY mundane, it does have magickal implications, and so we'll talk about some ways we can bring our Magick into our chores in some very powerful ways. While we're clearing out our attics, let's look for Crafty Ways to Rummage and Recycle. Afterall, "Repair, Re-fashion and…See More

Inner Child / Outer Child

This week, it's Kids' stuff here on The spiral Dance! Our theme is The Inner Child and the Outer Child. What does the Inner Child mean to you? Do you feel trustful toward your Inner Child?These are the sorts of questions we'll be examining in the first part of the show. And pretty soon we'll listen to a recorded guided meditation from Alan Cohen for connecting with your Inner Child. This is from his album, "Journey to the Center of the Heart", and the meditation is called "Beloved Child". Then,…See More

Spring Visions

I'm dedicating this weeks show to one of the Five Cardinal Elements, the Element of Air. It's a good topic for April because, by many traditions, Air is associated with Springtime and Day's Beginning. Usually associated with Men's Mysteries, Air is most often thought of as on the Mental Plane. The Romans gave the month of April it's name, which they called, Aprilis. For the Romans, it signifies a time of unfolding leaves and flowers. So we'll take a look at the Season of Spring - from the…See More

And in case you didn't know, Easter occurs on April 1st this year. I have a spoken word piece by Matt McCormick,: "The Salem Witchcraft Argument Against The Resurrection Of Jesus". Matt McCormick is a professor of philosophy for California State University, and he lays out…See More

We'll be talking about the history of Spring Equinox - the role that it has played in cultures down the ages: So, we'll talk about the Norse Goddess Eoster.
