    Biden's Election + Empathy

    Biden's Election + Empathy

    Today is November 7th, 2020, and I want to talk about the election of President Elect Joe Biden, Jr. and Empathy in society. It's a lot. We're having a lot of feelings and lot of people are yelling about a lot of things out there. So I want to talk too, but less yelling. Also, congratulations everyone, if you haven't been all that functional this week, me neither! We're doing great, though.If you want to support the podcast, you can!

    It's a Trap!

    It's a Trap!

    I was editing that last episode at a WEIRD time! While I was editing it, the announcement that Trump was diagnosed with COVID came out and I either did that podcast a little too early or a little too late. So  now I want to talk about the reaction to people reacting to the Trump-COVID news. We talked about some of this before in previous episodes:

    Black Lives Matter + Social Justice

    Black Lives Matter + Social Justice

    As if a global pandemic wasn't enough to have going on, as if the murder hornets weren't enough, the trend of murders by police have been continuing, escalating, and demanding attention. So let's talk about #BlackLivesMatter, social justice, and how MUCH these conversations and activism really matter in the spiritual and witchcraft communities, what we can do if protesting and demonstrating isn't an option for us personally, and how we can address these issues on a more personal level and more socially. 
    It's SO important that we talk about these things!My website is over here: http://www.CrowSongLodge.comMy Patreon is here: http://www.Patreon.com/CrowSongCoven

    Cleansing Essentials

    Cleansing Essentials

    Howdy, folks! Today I want to talk a bit about cleansing! I know it might seem basic to some folks, but sometimes cleansing is treated like a cure-all and gets over-used or used all on it's own, and I wanted to talk about it a little bit. We'll be discussing when to cleanse and when not to, grounding, elemental properities and activities, different types of cleansings, and a bit more - you know me, I get a bit rambly!
