Episode 15: Ancestors

Published November 22, 2015 by The Forest's Edge


Hear here!

Spinning off from the last episode, Betwixt and Between discuss the role of ancestors in their Witchcraft.

-What is an ancestor?

-Are we “all related?”

-Must we only relate to ancestors in a construct of linear time?

-What about adoption?

-Can you work with ancestors to resolve troubles you had with them in life? What about to try and heal the systemic problems our ancestors created, such as racism? And if yes, should you?

-Does work with ancestors intersect with work with the energy of a particular place or bioregion?

And, most importantly, have you sent in a question yet to be entered into the drawing for super-fun stuff?!??!?! Email us today! betwixtandbetweenpodcast@gmail.com

We think this is the podcast Betwixt was listening to that proposed one should only work with biological ancestors. But we didn’t link to a specific episode, because Between didn’t have time to go down the rabbit hole and find it. Sorry.

The Jaguar and the Owl is the podcast Between brought up in which they talked about ancestor elevation. We think it’s Episode 24, but there are lots of good episodes here about ancestors.

As always, Peter Paddon. Now a venerable ancestor by any estimation.

Here are some links to get you started if you’re interested in reading about religion in prehistory: this one, this one, this one, and this one!

And finally, just for fun, this.

  • I am going back and listening to your past episodes. In this episode you mention a comment about listener who wanted your podcast to be more “organized.” Not to be putting that listener down in any way, but I love your podcast exactly the way it is! They make me feel like I am hanging out with you in a witchy ladies’ circle. I’m sure I will still be listening no matter what you do with the show but I feel it’s important for me to let you know. 🙂
