OLD MAGIC + A MYSTICAL ABBESS + INTERDIMENSIONAL TRAVELERS | Occult Author | Rebecca Beyer Our Numinous Nature

    • Nature

Rebecca Beyer, aka "Blood & Spicebush," is a tattoo artist, hedgecraft practitioner, & occult author on witchcraft & folk magic, currently wild tending in the southern Appalachians of North Carolina. In this fun, sample platter episode we hear about broadleaf plantain folkways; ancestral roots; the ancient Gauls & the Celtic cult of the head; long hair; water witching; John Dee; witchcraft's beginnings; sympathy for the devil; and the life of a 12th-century German mystic & abbess named St. Hildegard von Bingen. For her story, Rebecca shares a deeply unnerving paranormal encounter with what she was told were interdimensional travelers... We end on sassafras folk magic & history, reminding us that every glass of saloop tea is filled with a whole universe of story!

Check out Rebecca's Blood & Spicebush Instagram & website. And order a copy of her new book Wild Witchcraft: Folk Herbalism,  Garden Magic, and Foraging for Spells, Rituals, and Remedies
