    Welsh Goddess Myths & the Modern Woman with Shelli Enteen

    Welsh Goddess Myths & the Modern Woman with Shelli Enteen

    Happy to have Shellie Enteen return to the show to continue our conversation about the treasure trove that mythology of the Welsh Goddesses still holds for today's women.  Shellie, an author, astrologer, interfaith minister, aromatherapist, educator, reiki master and public speaker has extensively researched the Druids for her trilogy, Revealing the Druid Legacy, an inspired memoir of a Dark Age Druid Priestess and she shares the valuable information with myself and listeners.  We'll talk about how Welsh Goddesses fit into Neo-Druidry and how they compare to those in the Celtic Dark Age.  We'll learn when their stories were writen, which are the most familiar Welsh Goddesses and what we can glean from the Neo-Druid Goddess myths useful for women now.

    Artemis, The Goddess Who Changed the World with Dr Carla Ionescu

    I'm thrilled to speak to leading Artemis expert, Dr. Carla Ionescu who has published several papers and authored a recent book titled "She Who Hunts - Artemis, The Goddess Who Changed the World."  Dr. Carla has become a respected authority on the subject and her work has not only advanced our understanding of ancient beliefs and rituals, but has also rekindled interest in the Goddess' role in shaping herstorical events.  We'll delve into Artemis, including the Ephesian Letters, her connection to Mary, Mother of Jesus, connections between ancient beliefs and modern cultural practice, what she means by Artemis as the "wild" Goddess, and how Artemis has changed the world.  Having both traveled to many of these ancient sites of Goddess, Carla and I have much to discuss!  I'm so excited!

Narcissistic abuse episode

Excellent!!! I’m glad that you had someone on to talk about this important and hyper-prevalent topic. Yes…this merely scratched the surface tho, and it’s my hope and prayer that anyone affected by this type of person and energy pursue this more fervently. It’s especially important, as I am very concerned about how this has infiltrated our political sphere, most notably the former President. His pathologies have deeply effected the body politic, and he is extremely dangerous….as many malignant narcissists are.

So grateful she’s back

I listened to Karen Tate’s podcast for many years before she took a break. I did not realize how important it was to me until she was no longer making them. VSF feels like home to me. It’s like spending time with the pagan women who raised me. And it challenges me. Sometimes the things that are said on the podcast are difficult for me sit with. But even when I don’t agree or feel a little skeptical, I’m so grateful for the conversation. And so grateful to be stretched and pushed and gently encouraged by a woman who has worked so hard and so long for a better future for all of us.
