Pagan Military Woes and Wins: Eric Cooper Interview

Aloha & Happy Leap Year show!

In this show I interview Eric Cooper of Forest Moon Grove on his organisationʻs History, Mission, and Goals. We also take time to really delve into the many incidents of discrimination set against US military troops both deployed and stateside. We touch on the Wild Hunt reported tensions at the Fort Hood Open Circle and the Open Letter by Michelle Morris regarding the many incidents of harassment theyʻre facing.

If youʻre like me and unaware or uninformed about the terms, incidents, or individuals involved in this on-going problem, then youʻll really appreciate this information PACKED show.

Eric and Forest Moon Grove are very open and welcoming to those who want to be supportive towards troops and their needs, so feel free to contact him directly through the mentioned methods in the show!

Lady Bless,

Lamyka

Aloha Everyone!!

Welcome to 2016 and a whole new show. I hope everyone had a great Imbolc, for those who celebrate it. Iʻve got a great show for you. Kicking it old school, pure content no bells and whistles.

On the show is Anna Zollinger and Bree NicGarran, co-authors of The Sistersʻ Grimoire. Iʻve got a great interview for you on the content, inspiration, and hard work that went into the book. Enjoy!

Lady Bless!

Fun with Pohaku Pt. 2! Also fun Sacred Harvest Festival news!

Aloha everyone! Here's the second installment of the fun discussion with Pohaku, better known as Kathleen Borealis of Borealis Meditation. Before the second half of the discussion begins I discuss some ways to spot 'Shady Characters'. Especially important during this festival season. Not only that but great news about my upcoming attendance at Sacred Harvest Festival!

Stay tuned to the Facebook Page for more info on the TWO workshops I'll be doing while at Sacred Harvest Festival.

Mahalo nui loa to those who contributed to this show and helped say goodbye to 2012. Some announcements as well, for example all music clips used will be announced in the audio and not written here anymore. Google/Bing is a beautiful thing that most would use anyway so I'm cutting down on any writing that is unnecessary. Check out the Facebook Fan Pages for more information and how much more we're going to start offering for Pagan Families!

August Pagan Women's Eps: Pagan Values in the Secular World

We've got a range of guests, some wonderful women coming in for the show. We had Star Foster of Patheos.com and Dee of PaganFM. This was a unique opportunity as Dee is a self-published author that's been on the show before (The Pagan in Recover: Twelve Steps from a Pagan Perspective), Star Foster works for a small faith company (Patheos.com), and I own and operate my own small business (Haumea Botanicals). Also just a quick warning there were some strange audio issues but nothing too garbled, just some weird echo and unmuted microphones, so sorry about the coughing/sneezing!

Please remember that right now we have our annual fundraiser going on! So please do check out our IndieGoGo page to donate and support the show--not to mention getting some great perks!

Lady Bless,
Lamyka

This month's main question topic:

How do/can our Pagan values help us succeed in the secular world? (What are practical examples of this?)

Follow-up question:

What expectations do we place on ourselves as Pagans?

July Pagan Women Eps.: Defining and Discussing Syncretism & Eclecticism

This month main hosts Lamyka, Star, and Cara were joined by Anne Hatzakis of GreekReconMommy to define and discuss Syncretism & Eclecticism with the Pagan community. Often times when these two terms have been discussed it usually denegrates to ranting against Eclecticism but I'm happy to say that this brought many fresh ideas and perspectives of the important implications. Also included in this episode is a early bird preview of a new product launching in time for Lammas/Lughnasadh on Mahealani Mahoe Hope 1 (August 1st)!

For June's Episode Cara, Star, and I (Lamyka) discussed the different non-fiction and fiction books that we read, are reading, and would like to read. We had a really great discussion that followed about these books and the importance of literature to us all. In the break I give a few important announcements so please be sure to tune in.
