    #83 Exploring living funeral ceremonies with Emily Cross

    #83 Exploring living funeral ceremonies with Emily Cross

    Hey everyone,

    I hope this episode with the wonderful Emily Cross finds you well and safe. I really, really loved talking to Emily about her work as an end of life doula and a facilitator of living funeral ceremonies. Our conversation covers things like fear of death, natural burials, living with embodied death awareness and what it's like to participate in one of her living funeral ceremonies. If you feel curious and open to thinking about your own mortality and are in the right place to engage with thoughts around death I think you might really enjoy listening to this episode. If you like you can also consider joining the next virtual ceremony on June 5th, the link is below and here is a video that will give you a better idea of what to expect: https://youtu.be/da_NJjqwGtw

    Emily Cross is an end-of-life doula, musician, and artist living in Austin, TX. After graduating from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where her visual artwork centered around mortality and loss, she moved to Austin and quickly became integrated within the arts and music scene. In 2015 she decided to pursue a career serving the dying, and earned professional certifications from the University of Vermont and from Quality of Life Care. She established Steady Waves End of Life Services in 2017 and brings her unique set of skills to her work with the dying and their families.

    #82 Intersectional herbalism for difficult times with Alexis J. Cunningfolk

    #82 Intersectional herbalism for difficult times with Alexis J. Cunningfolk

    Hey friends,

    I hope you are safe and doing as okay as you can 3 I loved listening back to this episode with Alexis J. Cunningfolk - their work is so comforting to be around and continues to inspires my own practices. We recorded this last year, which now feels forever ago, and so much of what Alexis shared feels extremely  immediate and important today. Here is some of what we talked about: 

    - Centring re-enchantment in our work and our lives
    - Remembering ourselves back home
    - Working with plant allies and tarot archetypes
    - Self-care practices for difficult times
    - Embodying interconnectedness 

    Alexis J. Cunningfolk (she/they) is the intersectional herbalist and witch behind Worts + Cunning Apothecary. She is dedicated to the re-enchantment of the world and helps folks to re-member themselves back home to their magick through herbal healing, magickal arts, and sound therapies both ancestral and modern. Her work is informed by her queerness, mxd ancestry, and the fact that they’re a young hag just waiting for time to catch up. They host online and in-person courses for starry-hearted healers as well as offering in-person services grounded in building communities of inclusivity and justice.

    Podcast #81 Exploring myth as healer and life in ceremony with Lara Veleda Vesta

    Happy Beltane & May Day sweet listeners! 

    I recorded this episode with the wonderful Lara Veleda Vesta quite some time ago and felt bad for publishing it so late, but listening back to our conversation just now made me realise that the timing is just perfect - Lara has so much wisdom and beauty to share around rites of passage and working through really difficult times. I love her work and am honoured to be one of her student and to share her message. Here is some of what we talked about: 

    - What it means to be a Dís-ability Witch living with chronic illness 
    - Myth as healer
    - Living in ceremony in big and small ways 
    - Leaning into ancestral support and creative practices through difficult times
    - The magic of naming yourself 
    - Rites of passage as death transformations 

    Lara Veleda Vesta is an artist, author and educator transforming chronic illness into a path of healing and reclaiming. She is the author of The Moon Divas Guidebook and The Moon Divas Oracle Book, illustrator of The Moon Divas Oracle Cards and The Runes Revealed, and is currently working on two books exploring death transitions: Dark Goddess, a handwritten, interactive rite of passage guide, and Coven Invisible, a memoir in myth. She has a patron community supporting this work, and to thank them she offers rituals, circles, mentoring and other gifts. Lara also teaches classes by donation at The Wild Soul School, where explorations include folk magic, ancestral connection, self-initiation and ritual practice.

    #78 Exploring tarot for self-reflection and creativity with Kathleen Callahan

    #78 Exploring tarot for self-reflection and creativity with Kathleen Callahan

    Hey everyone,

    I hope you are safe and able to stay home. As promised I am sending more podcast episodes your way so that we can least connect through the cosmic internet vibes. This Sunday I am also hosting a donation based grief circle - we'll do some gentle breathwork, meditate together, journal and do some self-massage to ease the lack of touch. You can learn more, sign up and invite your friends here: https://www.yarrowmagdalena.com/grief-tending/

    I really loved talking to Kathleen for this episode and have received several tarot readings from her that I still treasure and listen to lots (they are currently on sale for $25). Kathleen is truly magical, very real, very creative and very wonderful. Here is what we talked about: 

    - Tracing our journey through life with tarot journals 
    - Transforming harmful patterns in our lives 
    - Creating a tarot deck and being in creative flow
    - The reality of building a small business under capitalism and worrying about money
    - Working with the memories we carry in our bodies

    Although she thinks of herself as an eternal student, Kathleen has been working with the tarot for the past 19 years. Her father was a tarot reader in the 1970s but kept it secret from her until she bought her first set of cards at the initiatory age of 13. He refused to teach her the language of the cards, so she spent many years finding her own way with them. She has taught herself plant medicine and astrology over the course of the last 7 years, and now weaves her love for tarot, astrology, and plant medicine together in her work to support transformation in herself and clients. She is also trained in IET (Integrated Energy Therapy) and Reiki to nourish the space she holds for others. By learning to find the voice within after all these years, she now teaches others how to find their own inner wisdom and that we can be our own healer.
