Ever 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 Folklore Center in Sherman, New York.

I have had the pleasure of receiving two soul readings from Lisa during two separate trips to the Sirius Rising Festival, and both have been powerfully moving experiences of healing and transformation for me. She travels the country attending pagan festivals, so be on the lookout for her at your next festival. You can also check her itinerary and view her art on her website at http://www.bearsoulstudio.com. She is also available for readings and consultations.

One 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, after all.

Luckylicious and Christopher Penczak

Christopher "Get Off My Robe, Bitch" Penczak gets a smooch from Luckylicious.

In this episode of Eat My Pagan Ass podcast, Christopher Penczak dishes ALL to Lucky -- starting from his childhood Catholic porn fantasies wending all the way through his meteoric rise to grand poobah (well, 1/3rd poobah) of a pretty awesome school of witchcraft (but not wizardry...no, including the wizardry curriculum would have opened the school up to threats of copyright infringement from the folks at Hogwarts). Assless chaps are involved, as is much flirting and general silliness, all of which spice up what is a very interesting and informative glimpse into the life of one of modern paganism's most prolific witches and occultists, and explores the Temple of Witchcraft he created with his life partners Steve Kenson and Adam Sartwell.

The 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.

Dragon Ritual Drummers

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 Drummers [celebrated] their 10 year anniversary [in] 2010.  Based out of the Niagara Region, they began their journey as favorites in the pagan festival circuit in Ontario Canada.  They have since moved on to play at pagan festivals and large mainstream events all over North America.

The troupe is comprised of 6 members; Utu, Flint, Adrian, Drago, Naresh and Eion.  All members play a variety of instruments including tribal drums, string instruments, as well as brass and archaic reed instruments heard in the ancient hills and valleys of Europe, the Middle East and North Africa.  Their music and performances are creative, intense and powerful.  They bring the audience to their feet dancing as they are swept away in the intense beat of music, inspired from around the world and through the ages.

The lore of the Dragon Ritual Drummers is attached to the entity from which they take their name, the mythical dragon spirit that resides in an ethereal cave at the brink of Niagara Falls.  The ancient serpent spirit was once revered by aboriginal inhabitants of the region but was eventually cast into a negative legacy by the conquering Iroquois nation.  The serpents legacy was one of obscurity for generations.  From the beginning the the Dragon Ritual Drummers reached out to awaken the ancient water dragon spirit, and the rest as they say is history in the making.  The Dragon Ritual Drummers attribute much of their success to the dragon spirit, achieving unprecedented success for their musical genres world wide.  Their interactive and critically acclaimed CD "The Epic: A Drum Opera" tells the story of the Niagara dragon from the ice age to modern times, all with drums and percussion along with beautiful illustrations.  They  currently are promoting their newest release "Temple of the Drum"

They have been featured in numerous mainstream and pagan media, have owned the #1 ranking on the Canadian MySpace music charts for the genres of "Afro-beat" and "Tropical", and are currently in the top 20 in the U.S. MySpace music charts, and ranked #1 for their genre of  World Music on Reverb Nation!

AS GAY AS IT GETS!

Gay pagans, gay gods, sex magick, frolicking in the forest, and MORE!

ocymvio

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.

JUDGMENT 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")

May 21, 2011 Judgment Day

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 insights into the Faerie Tradition, bardic work, ritual drama, living with familiars, staying attuned to nature and the realm of Faerie, and even dishes on True Blood and her vampire/goth fascination. Silkie and Lucky talk about ethical living and how pagans can walk the talk a bit more, as well as take pride in our convictions and stand up for ourselves in the face of persecution, discrimination, and threats of physical violence.
