The Saturday 15 June 2013 edition of Pagan-Musings Podcast features segments of the 2013 Heartland Speakers’ Panel. The featured guests for Heartland this year were Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone, Mike Nichols, and Ed “the Pagan” Hubbard. Barbara Criswell of Aquarius Books in Kansas City acted as moderator. The topic for the panel was “Where do you envision Paganism, Wicca, etc going from here?”
The topic was paired well with the focus of many of the workshops and presentations from the honored guests. Janet and Gavin have decades of experience between them that they shared with the audience of the panel and with the participants of their workshops. Mike Nichols has been teaching about witchcraft since the 1970’s and is the author of The Witches’ Sabbats. Ed Hubbard has over 20 years experience as a priest and is co-manager of Pagans Tonight Radio Network.
The panel discussion was recorded in an open air auditorium, so there is some sound distortion. For that we apologize. Other than the wind and some audience noises, the only real sound issue was that some of the participants from the audience were hesitant on the microphone or even too shy to approach the microphone. Over all, the sound is decent enough to be able to hear everything being said. If you miss something and cannot figure it out, let us know and we would be happy to clarify things for you.

- Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone: Janet Farrar is probably one of the best known names in witchcraft, especially when addressing witchcraft in the UK. She and her first husband, Stewart, wrote many books that are still be referenced today by Elders and novices alike. Gavin Bone, Janet’s second husband (hand picked by Stewart and the Goddess Freya), has over two decades of experience in witchcraft and other forms of mysticism. Together they present workshops, classes, and write. At Heartland they present workshops on energy work and a look at the evolution of wtichcraft in the 21st century.
- Ed “the Pagan” Hubbard: Is the former CEO of Witch School International, recently retired First Elder of the Correllian Nativist Tradition and the CEO of Paganics. Most of us at PMPChannel know him as one of the hosts of Pagans Tonight, a nightly Pagan podcast on BlogTalkRadio. This was our second time seeing Ed at Heartland. Always a good time to sit and visit with him. Ed did several worshops on Pagan Leadership: How Pagan Are You?, The Path to Pagan Prosperity, Growing a Pagan Village, Pagan Leadership Training Raw and Conquering Your World.
- Mike Nichols is the author The Witches’ Sabbats. He is an author, musician and former radio personality in the KC area. Mike’s worshop was called Wicca’s Blackcloth: The Occult in American History. In this workshop he covered the early influences on occultism in the Americas and how those influences helped shape modern Wicca, at least from an American perspective.
- Tuatha Dea: Not only did this fabulous Pagan/Blues/Country/Folk band perform for the main concert of the weekend, but they taught a couple of worshops. Both aimed at the younger members of the Pagan community. Teen Team Building for Unity was an interactive rhythm event structured around the use of rhythm as a developmental tool and catalyst for building community through the power of the drum. Child’s Play introduced the truly young (and young at heart) to the basics of drumming for music and ritual use.
- other honored guests and musicians:
- Brian Henke, musician
- Joshua Messick, hammered dulcimer
- The Vine Brothers, featuring Joe Credit, Jr
- Viridis, featuring Beltana Spellsinger
- Finally, but no least: Food in the dining hall was prepared by Food on Wheels from Minnesota. Fabulous food. The chili feed Thursday night was provided free of charge to all attendees and was delicious. Their breakfast buffet was scrumptuous. We provided the rest of our own meals, so we cannot speak to their lunch and dinner menu. After tasting what they had to offer we wish we had purchased the meal plan. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to find a web address for these wonderful cooks and their kitchen crew.
