I’m reaching out with an episode that I hope will bring some comfort in these heavy times. Speaking to Risa & Amy of Missing Witches was truly such a joy and a great reminder of how powerful witchcraft is. I hope you’ll enjoy listening as much as I loved asking questions. Here is some of what we talked about:
- How and why the Missing Witches project came to be
- What it means to live in feminist magic
- Witchcraft as a sense of personal power
- How nothing is mundane and everything is sacred
