Speaker Spotlight: Rev. Robert Nolan

Posted on

Rob Nolan in londonThe Reverend Robert Nolan has been a frequent speaker at Changing Times-Changing Worlds since the beginning of the conference. Tchipakkan heard him speaking about both the how and why of studying the old heathen/pagan ways and bringing them into practice in the modern world at A Sacred Place in Canaan, NH and invited him to share his Old Laws series (Guest Right, The Importance of Your Word, and A Modern Code of Honour). Rob understands the difference between simply accepting a practice because it’s old, and using history to see which ways of doing things have stood the test of time, as well as examining which work best under different circumstances. He’s also spoken about the rights and duties of guest and host, and other aspects of honorable living.

Recently, having observed how difficult it is for men to negotiate the changing moods and cultural shifts of modern life, he has been working to develop men’s activities and rites of passage to make the modern world a more comfortable, effective place to live. He knows history, magick and religion through both study and active practice. He’s worked with many groups from A.S.P. to the  Sagefire Fellowship for the last couple decades. This year he’ll be speaking on Midwifing Deity: Origin of God.Rob-Nolan-Deb-Jarvis-wedding1

Posted on Updated on

Sheri Ann Cook You’d better grab yourself a snack for this one… Tchipakkan’s Guest on the New Normal on Wednesday is Sheri Ann Cook, and we “kitchen witches” will be talking about food! There is nothing we all do more often than eat (even more than we sleep), and what we consume makes a sacred connection between humans and the planet.

Sheri will be doing a workshop at Changing Times-Changing Worlds on Ritual Baking, and we’ll be talking about how to make your kitchen a magickal place, how to make your food work for you, what’s she’s been up to recently and what’s on the menu as we move into the cold dark of the year.

I know you cook! Do you cast spells? Do you know that many of the ingredients in your kitchen like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves are powerful magical SAC cookies augingredients? So is your parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme! (and other ingredients from milk to meat to pasta!) We may even share some special recipes!

Speaker on New Normal: Catherine Kane

cathy auraOn November 4th, Catherine Kane will be appearing from 8-9 pm on the New Normal with Tchipakkan on http://liveparanormal.com/

We’re talking about psychic empaths, those of us who are extra tuned in to the feelings and emotional vibes of others. It’s a lovely gift but, while you’re born with the gift, you’re not born with the skills you need to manage it. Without those skills, psychic empathy can be an overwhelming experience.

We’ll be talking about those skills- about how to control how much psychic energy you take in, how to ground out energy you don’t want and what to do with your gift, amongst other things. We’ll also talk about the people who care about empaths and how they can support their psychic.

Want to catch this interview, call in with your own questions or be part of the live chat happening during every show?

If you just want to listen, you can go to the above site, click the “Listen Live and Chat” listing under the “radio-listen/chat room” heading, and click “LISTEN HERE” next to “the New Normal”.
