MMM: 011914 Animals & Healing

crayon animalsTo continue with our animal inspired shows this month, thank you Michelle for the musings, we launched into a delightful collection of songs from artists like the Beach Boys, Cornell Kindernecht & Martin McCall, Cynthia McQuillan, the Brave Combo and more. Along the way we introduced some brand new music (to us) from Cornell & McCall and Phoenix Rising.

Dr. E/Hyperion – founder of the Unnamed Path tradition and Santero conjure man

Towards the end of the first hour we paid homage to Dr E, the conjure man and Santero, as well as asked for healing energy to be sent towards Donald Michael Kraig, author and teacher, and Morning Glory Zell, Oberon’s beloved wife. Dr. E died of a heart attack early last week, and both Donald and Morning Glory are in hospital battling complications with cancer.

Dr E, as Hyperion, guested on an episode of the Pagan-Musings Podcast in January of 2011. He joined RevKess and KaliSara to talk about the magick of men who love men and his tradition The Unnamed Path.

Donald Michael Kraig is the author of numerous books and articles, including Modern Magick and Modern Sex Magick. He has been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer.

Morning Glory, the beloved wife of Oberon Zell (founder of the Church of All Worlds) is an avid devotee of the Goddess. She paid KaliSara and RevKess an unexpected visit while they were interviewing Ariel, the editrix of The Green Egg, and Oberon in an episode of Pagan-Musing Podcast in June 2011. She spoke of her Goddess statue collection and Goddess retreats. She entered the ICU with kidney failure and dehydration related to recurring battle with cancer.

PMP: Anything Goes & Anne Hill

To be perfectly honest, less than six hours before the show went live, RevKess and KaliSara had no real idea of what they were going to talk about in this week’s episode. Not because they were lacking for topics or were being lazy. Launching the year on the show can be tiring.  They want to make sure that they kick things off with a bang. So, for lack of being decisive, they were going to a strictly “anything goes” musings show. That all changed when Geoffrey Stewart, the lynch pin for the Pagan Values Blogject, tagged RevKess in a comment to a post in the Pagan Values group on Facebook. Anne Hill, who visited the show on 6 May 2012 to discuss her ebook The Baby and the Bathwater, is an instructor at Cherry Hill Seminary. This winter semester she has been asked to do a non-credited condensed version of her Pagan Ethics masters level class.

Real World Pagan Ethics is the name of the four week class being offered through Cherry Hill. Available to all students of Cherry Hill, first time or master’s program, for only $95. The core reading is from Brendan Myers’ 2008 release The Other Side of Virtue along with articles from various Pagans around the world who have participated in the annual Pagan Values Blogject – including this article from Deborah Lipp.

What does it mean to be an ethical magical practitioner? How can you tell if a teacher or coven leader has good boundaries? When we step into leadership, how can we make sure we are doing right by our communities? This course is designed to help clarify our internal ethical code, and then apply it to the areas of Community, Service, Ritual, and Leadership. The poet and philosopher M.C. Richards wrote, “It takes a golden ear to be empty enough of itself to hear clearly.” We will approach the formation of healthy, rigorous ethics and boundaries in the spirit of deep listening and open conversation, and follow where it leads.

Along the way they talked about ethics, leadership, elder care and more.

After Anne signed off, RevKess mentioned Boudica Foster’s republished article Celebrity Pagans, talking about what are commonly referred to as BNPs (Big Named/Nosed Pagans) and SJ Tucker’s upcoming changes to her music catalog, dropping the use of the word “Gypsy” in at least four songs and her bio. The discussion in comments is really interesting to read. (As well as taking a listen to an episode of Sound & Spirit on WGBH.)
