Courtney 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 2012Originally 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 the Novices of the Old Ways. And just to keep Samhain super-scary, Courtney warns of the dangers of hydrofracking and the attempts of the Spectra Energy Corporation to bring hydrofracked gas into Manhattan via a pipeline that is planned to run under the West Village and other densely populated areas. And it's not just Manhattan -- hydrofracked gas is going to come your way, too, unless you stop it by calling your U.S. senators and congressional representatives and your state governor and demand that they refuse to allow hydrofracking and its products in your state. If you're a New York State resident, call Governor Cuomo TODAY at (518) 474-8390. To learn more about hydrofracking, check out the Sane Energy Project. Oh, and BLESSED SAMHAIN, kiddies!
