Shell Divination on the New Normal

Posted on Updated on

Podcast- December 30, 8 pm est shell divination

This week Tchipakkan will be talking to Charles Butler Neto. Charles is an esoteric teacher trained in Christianity, Wicca, Santeria, and Umbanda.
“I read dillogun (Santeria), Tarot, and some palms. I am a theologian and writer by trade. I am attending school at Howard University School of Divinity and work with Rising Sun Outreach Ministry. a chaplaincy corps reaching out to caregivers. I have been a chaplain working with the Federal prison system, working as a religious services contractor with FCI Cumberland, FP Hazelton, and the Secure Female Facility at Hazelton. I sing with the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington. I am a composer, a playwright, an author, a storyteller, a critic, a proofreader, an editor, a mystic, a poet, and a few other things.”
While usually it is women who do the shell reading, Baba Charles has shown a surprising facility in this practice and will be coming on to talk about it to us. Umbanda and Candomble recognize that gay men and trans-people have a special gift for working with shells and welcome them into their circles.

Originally scheduled for Wednesday the 23rd this conversation has been continued to December 30th, so wCharles-Butler2007e can go more deeply into this fascinating system. I’d also like to talk to Charles more about his work with pagans in Prisons. (He was able to give us an overview for 20 minutes, you can listen to here.)

Each Day has its own unique energy, color, planetary alignment, and folklore. In the Magick of Days, We will discuss the energy alignments with the selected day of the week. How the alignments change through the moon phases and seasonal changes; how you can attune yourself to these energies to incorporate them into your spiritual practice. We will finish 2015 with new knowledge that will help us manifest our bliss in 2016!   Attend all 7 in the series, or just the day that most interests you!
