New Normal

Discussion of Tribal communities on the New Normal

Posted on

Please join Tchipakkan on the New Normal 8 pm Wednesday, 11-25-15, 8-9 p.m. est.
There’s a joke that it’s good to have an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out. Tonight we’ll be talking about the difference between not refusing to believe the evidence in front of your eyes, and believing everything that supports your argument.spirit photography

We’ll also talk about the way we manage to alienate each other by disparaging other groups and how this “tribal” aspect of various communities has held back progress because you can’t learn useful and valuable information and techniques from someone you’ve disrespected.

Please join this conversation by calling in 619-639-4606  We’d love to hear your experiences.


“I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud.” – C.G.Jung
“A long time ago a bunch of people reached a general consensus as to what’s real and what’s not and most of us have been going along with it ever since.” – Charles de Lint
“In the future, it [will be] deemed a great oddity that 20th-century scientists had discovered elementary physical particles but had failed even to consider the possibility of elementary psychic factors.” – KURT GÖDEL
“There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.― Søren Kierkegaard

Speaker on New Normal: Sheri Ann Cook

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

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?

Listen to our Speakers on the New Normal Wednesday

Posted on Updated on

ISIS I AMPlease join Tchipakkan and her guest Lady AMber Dawn on the New Normal, Wednesday September 23 at 8 pm edt.

Tchipakkan will be talking with Genise White, known in the magickal community as Lady AMber Dawn on many topics- she is a Khemetic practitioner- which is the proper name for the ancient Egyptian traditional religion. She also is a “priestess” in Haitian Voudoun, as well as studying Umbanda and in the Circle Sanctuary Ministry Training. She also is a Reiki Master, does Color therapy, and reads Tarot (among other accomplishments). Since starting on the magickal/spiritual path decades ago, she has not been idle. But Wednesday we will be talking about the Khemetic faith.
Not all neopagan religions are variations on Wicca, some, like Khemeticism are based on the practices of our ancestors- in this case in Ancient Egypt, however modern practitioners have adapted what has been preserved from Ancient texts to modern day.

Please call in with any questions you may have about this: 619-639-4606 between 8:15 and 8:50.
