EMPA#0047: Yule, Community, and the Death of Baldur

EHail and welcome! It's Yule time on Eat My Pagan Ass. The trees are lit up with lights, gifts strewn below. The longest night approaches, and day is to be reborn. As we gather in with one another, fending off the winter blues and lonely, cold nights, we revel in the light of the human spirit, and find joy in one another's company. Now is the time of song and story telling, of promises and hope. A new day dawns, and we spiral inward to find the spark of light and carry it outward once more. Death of Baldur In this episode, I chat about community and the importance of coming together to honor ourselves and our spiritual path. I also give a reading of the the tale of the Death of Baldur, written by yours truly. In between I play some seasonal ROCKIN PAGAN MUSIC sung by Grailwood high priestess, Selkie Lyrazel ("The Snow Queen"). Brew yourself some mulled wine, or heat your spiked eggnog, pull up a chair by the fire, and let me carry you away back through time to an ancient place where ...

EMPA#0046: Samhain 2012, Hydrofracking, Politics, and Pagan Pride with Courtney Weber

ECourtney Weber, high priestess of the Novices of the Old Ways coven in New York City, a non-tradition based, fellowship-oriented Pagan spiritual community, and co-creator of the Tarot of the Boroughs, a photographic journey through the Tarot using modern New York City settings and notable community personalities, joins Luckylicious for the 2012 Samhain episode of "Eat My Pagan Ass" podcast. Courtney Weber and Luckylicious at NYC Pagan Pride Day 2012 Originally scheduled to be published before October 31, Superstorm Sandy had different ideas. Well, better late than never. This episode is chock full of Samhainy goodness. And coming just ahead of the 2012 U.S. presidential elections, includes quite a bit of politics from a Pagan perspective (well, from a couple of Pagans' perspectives, anyway). Courtney shares her story of how she came to Paganism (or, how Paganism came to her), and describes Progressive Wicca and how this spiritual and religious philosophy informs the activities of th...

Yust, The Faerie King (and regent ofThe Gossamer Court, an affiliation of spiritually inspired artists devoted to healing through art), tells us a little bit about his past, his vision, and the future in this wondrous episode of Eat My Pagan Ass.

EMPA#0044: Gede Parma and Ecstatic Witchcraft: Magick, Philosophy, and Trance in the Shamanic Craft

ESo I'm looking through my Facebook friends' friends and I come across this total hottie witch named Gede Parma. Shameless gay Leo that I am, I immediately reached out and invited Gede (pronounced g'DAY) to be on the show. Much to my delight, he accepted and fast forward several months into the future to July 12, 2012, the date finally arrived! When this magically delicious Aussie sauntered into my lion's den it took all my self restraint not to offer him one of my famous back massages. Instead, I humbly begged his forgiveness for my not being able to find my high-quality audio recorder and instead had to settle for recording this interview on my iPhone. (Siri interrupted one of the questions, and she's been put in time out.) In this interview, Gede shares with us how he came to paganism (well, was born into it by some definitions), how it's shaped his outlook on life, and why he's inspired to share his insights with others through his several published books and workshops. He challe...

EMPA#0043: Bull of Heaven -- the Mythic Life of Eddie Buczynski and the Rise of the New York Pagan

EMost pagans don’t know the name Edmund “Eddie” Buczynski (aka Minos Gwydion-Hyakinthos), but they should. In the span of only a few years in the 1970s, Eddie established three living traditions of modern neopaganism—the New York Welsh Tradition, the Wica Tradition, and the Minoan Tradition, which includes the Minoan Brotherhood, Minoan Sisterhood, and the Cult of Rhea, or the Cult of the Double Axe. This founding elder stood at the convergence of the hippy culture, gay liberation movement, and the rise of neopaganism in New York City, and took aspects of each to create unique and important contributions to neopagan religion and culture. In this episode of Eat My Pagan Ass, Luckylicious interviews special guest Michael G. Lloyd (aka Garan Du), a Minoan high priest, co-founder of the Between the Worlds men’s gathering, and author of Bull of Heaven: The Mythic Life of Eddie Buczynski and the Rise of the New York Pagan, a book that some consider the sequel to Margot Adler's seminal...

EMPA#0042: Lisa Owen, Soul Portraits, and Poop

EEver wondered what your soul looks like? Just ask Lisa Owen, a talented artist who sketches beautiful original art based on her psychic impressions of people's souls. After a harrowing near-death experience following a car accident at a young age, her psychic awareness intensified with abilities to see auras and talk to spirit guides and ancestor spirits. Her training with midwestern Native American tribes taught her reverence for the circle of life and the sacredness of totems, the medicine wheel, and the spiritual artist's path. Then, while overcoming a cancer diagnosis that resulted in intensive chemotherapy and a double mastectomy, Lisa's artistic powers ignited and she began to shape her visions into drawings, dolls, and altar pieces. "Stage IIIa cancer...gave me my art...art is my juice, my blessing from the gods...I learned how to live through almost dying," Lisa says in this powerful interview, recorded July 17-ish, 2011, at the Sirius Rising Festival at the Brushwood Folklo...

EMPA#0041: Christopher Penczak, Pagan Paths, and Assless Chaps

EOne sweltering early September morning at Gay Witch Camp (aka Between The Worlds queer pagan men's gathering) in southern Ohio, I was lugging my camping gear to and fro when who should happen to wander by and in a grand gesture of chivalry offer me some assistance but none other than the World Famous Pagan Author and Witch, Christopher "Get Off My Robe, Bitch" Penczak?!? It's not every day two of pagandom's most notorious gay witches meet for the first time. The earthworms will sing of our fateful encounter for generations to come. As it so happened, being the informed witch that I am (it pays to have dirt on people) I knew Mr. Penczak was going to be there and I was planning to hunt him down and nag him until he agreed to be interviewed. So imagine my delight when he not only found ME but also practically begged me to let him be on the show. Well, what can I say...they don't call me Lucky for nothing. I played hard to get at first, of course, but I consented. He IS world famous, af...

EMPA#0040: Dragon Ritual Drummers

EThe Dragon Ritual Drummers make a special guest appearance on Eat My Pagan Ass podcast with host Luckylicious. Following the band's powerful performance at the Between The Worlds queer pagan men's gathering in southeastern Ohio in mid-September 2011, Lucky asks members Utu, Adrian, and Flint all about the group and their music. Listen and learn about the group's origins and inspirations (musical, magical, and spiritual), as well as their commitment to strengthening the brotherhood of men in paganism and their vision for a united global pagan community. Lucky's interview with this world-famous, chart-topping musical performance group touches on the need for men's mysteries and rights of passage, the role of voodoo and other Afro-Caribbean religions in the evolution of American music and culture, and the wonder and joy that comes from following your heart, living your rhythm, and dancing your soul. + + + About the Dragon Ritual Drummers (Source: the group's website): The Dragon Ritual...

EMPA#0039: Gay, Gay, Gay!!

EAS GAY AS IT GETS! Gay pagans, gay gods, sex magick, frolicking in the forest, and MORE! Lucky interviews the notoriously fabulous (or is that fabulously notorious?) Ocymvio, a gay pagan who's made his home in NYC and has brought quite a big of magick and fellowship to the gay pagan community there. Founder of the NYC Gay Men's Open Pagan Magick Circle, gypsy born, Minoan Brotherhood member, fashion designer, tarot reader, regular attendee at Between the Worlds and Short Mountain Sanctuary, and all around groovy guy, Ocymvio shares his experiences as a gay pagan and how he puts a little swish into his "Walking the Talk." This episode was recorded at Beltane, so there's a bit of friskiness and quite a lot of vulgarity -- served up just how you badass pagans love to hear it! See Ocymvio's fashion designs on the web at Gypsycamp Clothing.

EMPA#0038: Faeries, Ethics, and Motörhed

EJUDGMENT DAY XXI: The Return of Judgment Day (Sequel to "Judgment Day XX: Here It Is Again (and THIS TIME It's for REAL, We Promise") It's the same old bullshit since the day anyone walked around claiming to be a prophet: follow some jokester, swallow his bull hook, line, and sinker, give him all your money, sell everything you own, leave your families, and tell everyone the world is coming to an end. When will people learn? Is it self-loathing that turns them against this world, their loved ones, and themselves? What kind of escapist fantasy nightmare are they giving themselves over to, and for what? How does this contrast with the pagan worldview? Luckylicious talks about loony fundamentalist fringe-heads and acknowledges there's more to be learned from their behavior than you might realize at first. Also in this very special episode Lucky interviews the very talented artist and witch, Silkie Lyrazel, high priestess of the Grailwood Coven in New York City. Silkie shares her insigh...
