In this episode I talk about my own magical/spiritual training and how I developed my own path.  Also I begin my series of interviews with people how are forging their own unique Pagan path, a series I call "Pagan Voices".  My friend Golden Bird Rising joins me for this first interview, I did not do a very good job on this interview and constuctive suggestions are welcome.

The music today is from Putumayo Presents Sahara Lounge

The opening song is "Shiraz" by Sharif

    K: Glad you’re back!

    I think you are too hard on yourself. The interview went quite well in my opinion. You seemed a little nervous, but I don’t feel you did a poor job interviewing your subject. I really like hearing about unique or obscure spiritual paths. You covered all the bases: origins, ritual, spiritual connections, etc. You could ask future guests about how they manage a daily spiritual practice (if they do), how they came out of the broom closet (if they have), or if they have any stories of personal enlightenment or discovery they’d like to share concerning their path.

    As for your segment on spiritual training, it was great! Just what I needed to hear. I really appreciate you sharing your experiences with us. It is always helpful to hear what others have done and gone through, to know that I’m not alone in my fumbling, and that I possess great potential. Thank you.

    Looking forward to ‘cast #13 and beyond! Blessings

    I enjoyed this episode, and I don’t think you talked too much. It was a good straightforward interview.

    I enjoy your podcast and your interview with Golden Bird was good. I was hoping for more detail on her beliefs. Is there any way of contacting Golden Bird? I’m trying to find a Goddess for myself from the that ancient time period. I have been researching Innana/Ishtar. But when I saw the Burney Relief on the internet showing Innana/Ishtar with an Owl on either side of the her got my attention. Owls play an important part in my family lore. I have tried to find more about the meaning of the Relief and the owls there-in with little success. I was hoping that Golden Bird could guide me to scholarly papers regarding that Relief.

    I agree with all the responses, I think you did very well especially your first interview and were much too hard on yourself. I was braced for obnoxiousness after your disclaimer, and found you to be straightforward and simply trying to guide things along :)

    I would love to hear more from Golden Bird, the other people who posted covered the topics well. I would also love to see your notes that you passed to her, it was all so intriguing!

    I just started downloading your podcasts and I truely enjoyed your interview. Tell Golden Bird that she isn’t alone, in fact I’ve been on the Sumerian path for 3 years now and the mere mention of An gave me goosebumbs all over. :) It’s strange but even though I’ve been pagan for 14 years, it wasn’t until I came upon the Sumerian path that I truely found what I was looking for. Thanks.
