Special Episode – Sound Sigils

May 30, 2018

Summary:

This is a (highly experimental) episode that features three audio charms (or “sound sigils” as Cory calls them). They incorporate traditional materials but also some fairly out-there stuff, too. If you have audio sensory issues, we won’t blame you for skipping this one. Otherwise, we hope you enjoy this practical dive into “sensory witchcraft!”

Episode 127 – Witchcraft and the Senses

May 17, 2018

Summary:

Laine and Cory discuss the role of the standard “five senses” within their witchraft, as well as how impairment or differences in those senses can inform or change our magical practice. We talk about incense, rune cookies, sensory deprivation, BDSM (this one may not be one for the youngsters!), and audio spellcasting.

There are a LOT of previous episodes we should mention here that are related to our topic:

 

We mention a couple of Scott Cunningham books during this episode, including Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner (for the “Ritual of Gestures”) and The Complete Book of Incenses, Oils, & Brews (for incense/scent-based magic). Cory also mentions a favorite book that deals with scent and magic (sort of), called Jitterbug Perfume, by Tom Robbins. We also discuss Uncle Bucky’s Big Blue Book and the Witches’ Bible Compleat, by the Farrars.

 

Cory recommend’s listening to Scarlet’s “Sonic Ritual” episode of Lakefront Pagan Voice. You may also want to check out Laura Tempest Zakroff’s site for info on dancing and magic.

Cory briefly mentions an album of Scottish folk charms, which is called “Tales of the Taibhsear.” Checking out the Kickstarter page for that project will tell you more about it.

 

Cory mentions the “honey” ritual in Jewish traditions, which is called “upsherin,” and which he learned about from his colleague Amy Milligan’s article on the ritual in the Children’s Folklore Review.
