A podcast about divination, magic, and planning paths ahead in an inspirited world. Coffee and Divination started four summers ago, during North Wyldewood Coven's annual retreat. As we relaxed in the sunshine with our coffee and tea, we brought our cards and runes out to the table, and started reading for one another. We've kept up the tradition in person and online, and now we're inviting you to join us! Divination is the art of obtaining knowledge through hidden means, and has been a part of civilizations around the world - likely for tens of thousands of years. Divination can help us understand situations, answer questions and give us insight on the threads that weave our lives together. While our world undergoes this time of upheaval, studying and practicing the arts of divination can help us navigate and plan for the roads ahead.

    Episode #19: Politics and the King in Orange with John Michael Greer

    On this episode of Coffee & Divination, we welcome back author and magician John Michael Greer. He's written numerous works on a variety of topics, including ecology, politics, appropriate technology, oil depletion, Druidry, divination, and magic. (He has written over 50 titles so far.) In this discussion, we delve into some of the magical underpinnings of politics today, as well as in the more distant past. His recent thought-provoking book, "The King in Orange: The Magical and Occult Roots of Political Power," was our jumping off point, and I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation.

    Episode #18: Mysteries of Dionysus with Peter Mark Adams

    Episode #18: Mysteries of Dionysus with Peter Mark Adams

    On this episode of Coffee & Divination, we welcome back author Peter Mark Adams. Peter is the author of “The Game of Saturn: Decoding the Sola-Busca Tarocchi” and "Dancing out the Mysteries of Dionysus."  This was a fantastic discussion of the Dionysian themed frescos of Pompeii’s Villa of the Mysteries, which are not only incredibly beautiful works of art, they constitute the single most important theurgical narrative to have survived in the Western esoteric tradition. It was a great conversation that delved into some beautiful territory, and I hope you enjoy it!

    PLEASE NOTE: In the video version of this episode, found on Vimeo and linked here in the show notes, I include images of some of the frescos as we discuss them, so I recommend watching the video version if you have the chance.

    Coffee & Divination - Episode #17: Health, Magic, and the Cancer Grimoire with Ivy Bromius

    On this episode of Coffee & Divination, we welcome author and magician Ivy Bromius, to talk about her most recent release, the Cancer Grimoire.  This work, offered for free on her website, was written after her recent experience with breast cancer. She is thankfully now cancer-free, and has written the Cancer Grimoire to hopefully help others who are going through health crises, as well as to open up important conversations around magic, wellness, and healthcare in our culture.  

    Please note that we discuss some intense subjects during this episode, and, as neither Ivy nor myself are doctors, our conversation does not constitute medical advice.

    Coffee & Divination - Episode #15: Grammatomancy and Hermeticism with Sam Block

    Coffee & Divination - Episode #15: Grammatomancy and Hermeticism with Sam Block

    The return of this podcast's very first guest, Sam Block! This was another wonderful conversation, this time discussing grammatomancy (the art of divination using letters of an alphabet - in this case the ancient Greek alphabet and the oracle that uses those letters) as well as hermeticism, magic, and more. It was a fascinating conversation, and I hope to have Sam on again for more another time!

    Coffee & Divination - Episode #14: The Sola-Busca Tarocchi and Renaissance Magic with Peter Mark Adams

    Coffee & Divination - Episode #14: The Sola-Busca Tarocchi and Renaissance Magic with Peter Mark Adams

    A wonderful conversation with author Peter Mark Adams - a specialist in the ethnography of ritual, sacred landscapes, esotericism and healing.  His works have been published by Inner Traditions and Scarlet Imprint; and include “The Game of Saturn: Decoding the Sola-Busca Tarocchi” and “Mystai: Dancing out the Mysteries of Dionysus”  The Game of Saturn is a work which leads the reader through a fascinating journey, exploring the 15th cent. Sola Busca tarocchi, which is a work of stunning beauty and complexity, as well as containing tantalizing clues regarding Renassance practices of ritual magic. It was a fascinating chat, and one that I hope will lead to other conversations in the future!  

    This episode was done as a video interview, and in our Vimeo version, you can see slides of various cards as we discuss them. You can check that out at: https://vimeo.com/manage/videos/543447012

Interesting conversations

This is such an interesting podcast. I have listened to most episodes and all of them have great guests with lots of wisdom. JoAnna is a beautiful interviewer pulling out so much from each guest. I hope this podcast continues. I have found myself watching it on Vimeo
