Abysmal Witch (1) - Healing Spell

Merry meet to one and all,

And welcome to the inaugural show stealing segment: The Abysmal Witch. It is all ritual, all the time, with a bit of explanation thrown in for fun, okay, for clarity. In the intro I quote the first verse of the Witches Creed by Doreen Valiente. With a little garageband effect over top which really was just for fun.

During the show I play The Celts by Enya in the background, read the Witches Rune by Doreen Valiente and Gerald Gardner together (though the Eko Eko Azarak part at the end is considered typically part of a different chant).

I discuss the ritual very briefly at the end so please ask me questions if I didn't explain or say enough about what I was doing! Actually, any feedback on it would be greatly appreciated given that this was rather a departure from 'typical' podcasting.

Finally, I mention my blog: The Abysmal Witch.

And that, as they say, is that.

Blessing of the deep and wild upon you.

Saturn, The Abysmal Witch

    LOVED this episode. Thank you for sharing your spell with us. I hope you do more episodes like this one! I learned so much from listening to the spell itself along with your commentary. It was the commentary that really completed the picture for me. Thanks again!

    Hey, Katherine, that’s great to hear! I just finished recording episode 10 and you’ll notice I mention only a single response to this episode (and it wasn’t yours) but that’s because the normal email notification failed me! otherwise I would have thanked you on the show. What were the odds?

    Regardless, I really appreciate the feedback, thank you! And happy solstice,
