In this episode I speak with the lovely Adrienne Piggott, lead singer of the band Spiral Dance and event organiser for the English Ale, a Morris Dancing folk festival held in the Adelaide Hills every May. I was lucky enough to stay with Adrienne over the weekend of the festival and we sat down after a very busy time to have a chat about it all, and also about Spiral Dance, her creative process and our love of the integration of Celtic tradition into the Australian landscape.I hope you enjoy it. We had fun.

In this episode I have a chat with Bree who runs the Sydney Northern Beaches Red Tent in Brookvale. We discus what Red Tents are, why you might want to go to one, and why, and how you might want to set up one yourself. We also discus some of the differences between our practices and ways we are each going about discovering new ways of holding circles and creating sacred space.

In this episode I have a chat with my good friend Pip Stoneham. We talk about her new Oracle deck, the Serenity Oracle which is coming soon, as well as delving into self-acceptance, thinking positive, happiness, health, yoga, confidence and alchemy. We both love a good laugh and not taking ourselves so seriously. It was a really fun chat for us. I hope you enjoy it too.

Wow. Guy is a really amazing...(I want to say guy....) um.... human! It was a pleasure to have a chat with him about his experiences, community building, leadership, "substance" - as in having integrity, and what it means to find resilience through authenticity. I've got to say I was a little out of sorts during this interview! I had only found out that day that we are moving house and I was a bit churned up about it. So I think I sound a bit jumpy and silly, lol. Anyway, Guy made me feel really comfortable, and hearing him share his story was insanely powerful and moving. He has an incredible energy about him as I'm sure you'll find out.
If you want to get in contact with Guy, maybe to expand this rad community tribe even further, Facebook might be the best place! Guy Menzies-Saunders.

Sam is just a buddy of mine who I always seem to have amazing chats with. We met at high school, but have only really become friends in the last couple of years. In this chat I just thought we'd have absolutely no plan and just see where it went. And beginning with a simple "how are you?" we went to some pretty amazing places. I was stoked to have an opportunity to share my "relative relativism" idea and to have an opportunity to test it out too!. I hope you like this as much as I loved making it. Sam's off on an adventure for a few months, but I'm sure he'll be back sometime for another podcast one day.

This is a bit of a before and after podcast. I attended a ritual organised by some friends in the Wiccan tradition for the Autumn Equinox. I was crowned Beltaine Queen last year in October so this ritual was another part of that story for the year. It was really moving. I talk about goals and harvests, lessons for the year, about unity and community, loss, the mystery of death, and connectedness. It was a great ritual and I'm feeling well and truly shifted into the dark half of the year. If you'd like to know more about neo-Paganism and the rituals of the wheel of the year, you can find some info on my blog:
or send me a message via my website, www.forestspiritjewelry.com and I'll give you some more personalised info. I'd love to hear from you!

In this episode I am sharing with you a part of my personal journey on healing and forgiveness. Love is the antiseptic that can heal all wounds. I talk about my journey of forgiveness with Christianity and how that in finding a space of mutual understanding I am furthering my path in Druidry and also practicing yoga. I hope this storytelling helps you in your journey too.

Brittany McCowan is creating a documentary about Australian Paganism. We had a chat about the process and what it's been like for her to get into this niche industry. If you'd like to find out more about Brittany's upcoming film and see some behind the scenes videos (including one of me singing!), you can find her on You Tube as "Modern Witches"... which for some reason only seems to come up on my You Tube search it I put in "Modern witches of Aus", so maybe try that!
