    Episode 55: Permission and Spellcasting

    Episode 55: Permission and Spellcasting

    Another grey area episode! Today, we're going to talk about the idea of getting permission before casting spells on or for other people. This is just a basic overview of my thoughts on the matter as well as examples of situations where I find it appropriate to ask permission - or not! 

    What do you think about this topic? Do you approach it with the Wiccan Rede in mind? Is your witchcraft secular? Let me know! Use the hashtag #rtcpodcast wherever you are on social media and let me know!

    I make every attempt to be inclusive and accessible to everyone. If you would prefer to download a PDF copy of this transcript, click here: http://www.roundthecauldron.com/download/round-the-cauldron-ep-55-transcript/

    REMEMBER: Kindness and healthy discussion is tolerated. B******t, bullying, and gatekeeping ARE NOT. I will block anyone who feels that they can't have a healthy, civil discussion.

    Episode 54: Veganism, Witchcraft, and Ethical Choices - It's not what you think!

    Episode 54: Veganism, Witchcraft, and Ethical Choices - It's not what you think!

    There are many differing opinions on this subject. The way you view the world, including your religion or spiritual practice, can definitely color how you behave and the lifestyle you live. But does that mean you have to be vegan to live a spiritually-led life?

    I make every attempt to be inclusive and accessible to everyone. If you would prefer to download a PDF copy of this transcript, click here.

    CLARIFICATION: When I talk about cells being a form of life, I'm talking about self-sustaining cells like single-cell organisms.

    Come find out what I think, and let me know what you think!

    REMEMBER: Kindness and healthy discussion is tolerated. B******t, bullying, and gatekeeping ARE NOT. I will block anyone who feels that they can't have a healthy, civil discussion.

    Episode 53: Safety in the Craft

    Episode 53: Safety in the Craft

    I feel like we don't hear enough about safety within witchcraft, so I'm here to talk about it. This is not just about physical safety, either. Come explore the physical, mental, and spiritual safety concepts that I feel are important in practicing witchcraft! These include fire, crystals, herbs, mental health, and working with higher entities.

    Episode 52: Moving Past Wicca 101

    Episode 52: Moving Past Wicca 101

    Moving past 101 content can be a huge task if you don't know what to do, where to go, and what to study. So, why should you move past 101 content and how do you do it? I use Wicca as a basis for this episode, but this applies to all paths, traditions, and religions.

    Imbolc Video
    Imbolg (or Imbolc) is a time of celebration for the coming of Spring. Imbolg is one of the original Celtic Fire Festivals and holds a special place in the hearts of many. With the sacred fires, planting of seeds, and honoring of Brigid, Imbolg is a time of growth and new beginnings.
