Raising Psychic or Magic Children Panel

Little Girl Glitter Trail Magic Summer Enchanting

Is there anything we worry about more than what we’re teaching our children? They are born with so much potential, we want them to be as powerful as they can be, and still not be hurt. How do we help them develop their talents and abilities, to do what we do, or more than what we do, safely and respectfully. How do we protect them from the world that doesn’t want them to be extraordinary- and the dangers of the worlds that are? How do we teach them to keep things we know to be OK secret so they won’t be teased, yet let them know not to be ashamed? Let’s share what we’ve learned, and hope it will make all our children’s lives easier.

Raising Pagan Children (with magick) podcast

Posted on Updated on

va%cc%8arblot_2010_offerga%cc%8avorPlease join Tchipakkan on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, date, 8-9 p.m. est.
I’ve raised four children openly pagan in our small town, and they are now adults with various spiritual paths, and comfortable with magick. The most difficult bit was probably the same as many other people have this time of year- convincing the kids not to spoil the beliefs of other kids about Santa (I’ll talk more about that on the podcast).
When first-generation pagan parents start bringing their kids up, they don’t have the generations of tradition to draw on, it’s hard to go to your parents for advice if they are still dealing with their own discomfort with your choices. And let’s face it, for many on the Wiccan path, this mystery religion wasn’t really designed to work with small children and other aspects of families. So for the last decades neo-pagans have been working on ways of dealing with the challenges. Celebrate Yule at Solstice, but go to Grandma’s for Christmas? How perfect is your trust with covenmates and your kids?
And magick- at what point do you think it’s OK to teach the kids how to cast? When are they ready to use athemes and candles? When should they come to a circle, and if not yet, what do you do with them? How do you teach them to be descrete without making them feel our faith is a dirty secret? How do you help them resist the efforts of school and society to convince them this stuff is all imagination? I can share my perspective and experience, but hope other pagan parents will call in with theirs.
If you can listen live, and want to join the conversation (otherwise it will be a monologe) Please call in with any stories or questions: 619-639-4606
The New Normal “airs” Wednesdays at 8-(nearly) 9 eastern time on www.Liveparanormal.com.

Speaker Spotlight: Catherine Kane

Posted on Updated on

 

catherine du feyThis delightful lady is Catherine Kane, “small medium at large”, who has probably done more classes at CTCW  than anyone else. (To see the full list, go to Catherine Kane’s page.)

She is an amazing palmist, an empath, a psychic, and has become a popular author with her accessible and useful books such as Adventures in Palmistry and The Practical Empath.

This year at Changing Times-Changing Worlds Catherine will be presenting bringing back a Touch of Acupressure, a workshop she’s been giving Sunday mornings for years- showing you how acupressure can take care of those aches from sleeping in a strange bed, or being on your feet or sitting in hard chairs, migraines, flaggin energy, sinus issues from breathing hotel air, and a host of other unwanted baggage that seems to come bundled with the good stuff that we come to the con to get. She’ll also be teaching Kaizen: Baby Steps to Work Wonders, a way to tackle intimidatingly large issues by taking tiny steps toward success. We’ve also asked her to bring back her popular Practical Empath because empaths appreciate learning the techniques she’s discovered to make what can feel like a curse into the blessing it can be.catherine du fay

Cathy is also an incredibly talented palmist, and reader of I Ching (and other techniques). If you can’t wait to meet her (or see her again) you can find her and Starwolf on weekends at the Connecticut Rennaissance Faire through the end of October, or soak up her wisdom and wit at her blog Foresight Your Psychic.
