Today on the A Pinch of Magick podcast I’m joined by Louisa Darling founder of Barefoot Festival and the Witch Festival in Leicester
As we talk about the importance of having a space to explore and return home to yourself,no matter your age.
In this episode we dig deep into using the experiences you’ve had as a way to discover your own magick. Whilst remembering that there is no set path or strict rules you need to follow to get permission to claim and use your power and magick.
Perhaps you’ve been curious about how to step into more of your power and magick. But as you’ve explored this possibility, you’ve felt that you don’t belong or haven’t been welcome in certain groups or situations.
It’s painful for sure.
Well, on today’s episode Louisa shares her experience of finding the perfect community and her experience of embodying her own power and magick, especially as she gets older.
I hope that today’s episode inspires you to embrace where you are and look forward to what’s to come!
In this episode Louisa shares:
How her journey to creating magickal gatherings began with belly dancing
The dissonance she experienced between enjoying belly dancing and watching the bombing of the Gaza Strip
How this led her to explore earth dancing from her own lineage
How her training, teaching and experience of Kundalini Yoga mirrored her experience of magick
The importance of private practice and the importance of coming together with others
How she found some moots to be cliquey, so she decided to create her own gatherings
What it means to be a ‘real’ witch
The reluctance she had to claim the title of ‘witch’
The importance of healing the ‘witch wound’, so women feel brave about speaking out
The importance of reclaiming the power that mid-life brings with it
How it can seem easy to dismiss the activism of mid-life women, but that’s when they have more power
How when we deny our power and repress past events, our bodies can store that information and how it manifests in daily life
How we can be quick to throw away and reject what appears to be ‘rubbish’, when that’s where the gold can be.
The importance of remembering that you’re not alone on this path.
