In today's episode, I recall my trip over to this year's Gulf Coast Gathering. Put together by Highland Oak Nemeton, the gathering was a fantastic time! I met a ton of new family members, was initiated in the Bardic Grade, and even handled the role of Herald in the Alban Eilir ritual. I managed to get two very fun interviews - one with fellow Bardic initiate Malbren, and another with fellow attendee Cyn. The musical feature is a song written by one of the attendees - Bran Cerddorion - called "Awen Flows Free (Not in Kansas Anymore), which is about the Gulf Coast Gathering itself. Along with all of that is the debut of a new segment: The Book Corner, which is my take on a book that I recently have read. This debut segment, I talk about Nimue Brown's "Druidry and Meditation".  The spoken word segment is a my reading of a Robert Frost classic...


Bran's awesome music can be found at his Soundcloud page:  https://soundcloud.com/brancerddorion

Nimue's books can be found at Amazon - http://www.amazon.com/Nimue-Brown/e/B00AZM663S/

Apologies for the episode 009 upload that was previously up.  Apparently there was a copy of the previous podcast that was in the queue, and that was utilized instead of the file it should have selected. The corrected copy is being uploaded at this moment - and a new upload for that will be sent out shortly.

We also talk for a short bit about her involvement with The Druid College, how she started on her Spiritual Path, and what's on her digital music player.  :)  We also have Omnia's "Love in the Forest" from their "Wolf Love" album, and I spend some time with you on the Spoken Word segment with my own poem "Ready to Start It All Again".  Come on in and take a short stroll upon a Pagan Path!

I spend some time discussing why I choose to be a Pagan, and why I use the framework of Druidry to hang my coat of Paganism, and hat of Polytheism on. I wax somewhat in-eloquently (what's different about that than usual?) on my perspective of the Gods...along with a few left-turns into gender issues (not that far - I took one step in that direction), and a few other topical dead-ends.  "If I Could Only Speak Crow..." is featured in the Spoken Word segment, and Wendy Rule's "Dance of the Wild Faeries" from her 2011 album 'Live at the Castle on the Hill' is the featured music segment.  You can find Wendy's music at http://www.wendyrule.com/.  Please support your Pagan musicians by buying their albums, so that they can continue to bring their magick to our ears!!

I also spend a little bit of time going over some changes I have had in my mind concerning the title of "Priest". I also spend a bit of time talking about the upcoming changes to the podcast as well.  This episode’s music is from the lovely Kellianna and is her song "She Moved Through the Faire" from her album "Traditions". Such awesome stuff!!  The Spoken Word segment is my rendition of "Spring Pools" by Robert Frost.

In this episode, I have a lengthy conversation with Troy Young, one of the co-Chairs for DFW Pagan Pride Day. We discuss Pagan Pride Day 2013, as well as tackle many issues related to personal Spirituality. I do believe we talked about nearly every topic under the sun, except how to split the atom - and I believe if we had let the conversation continue, we might have done just that too!

DFW Pagan Pride Day's web site is located at:  http://dfwpaganpride.org/

Our Pantheons Way's web site is located at: http://ourpantheons.org/

The musical feature is 'Alive!" by Omnia. Their music can be found at http://www.worldofomnia.com/. Please remember to support your independent Pagan musicians and BUY their music!!
