Please join Tchipakkan and her guest for Otherworldly on Zoom this Wednesday, January 10th, at 8 PM Eastern time.
This week on Otherworldly, Ellen Evert Hopman, Master Herbalist, Druid Priestess and author, is back to talk about herbs for the winter season. Her newest book The Sacred Herbs of the Yule and Christmas: Remedies, Recipes, Magic, and Brews for the Winter Season.
Having just read it, I’m excited to talk about it with her, because I’m a huge fan not only of herbalism, but also holidays and cooking. Her book starts with sections on the mystical figures of winter from St. Nicholas to Krampus, le Befana, to the Nisse and Tompte; rituals and traditions of the season, both Christian and pagan, from all over the world, including many recipes. After that she goes into detail about the medical and magical uses of dozens of herbs, spices and plants, all meticulously footnoted, indexed and (at least in the kindle version), cross referenced. I could probably talk to her for over an hour about all the fascinating magicka and medicinal foods, drinks, and other things in the book, but I will leave time for audience questions (otherwise, why have it be live?).

People are psychic, magick is real, ghosts and other spirits exist, and people can heal with energy. Each culture around the world had come up with ways to explore these realities, and that’s great, we can learn from each other, that’s how we change the world.
The Changing Times-Changing Worlds Conference is a conference for learning about magick, psychic abilities, spiritual practices, divination, healing modalities, folklore, and similar skills; it takes place in early November each year in New England (or the upper east coast). Since we enjoy such topics all year, every Wednesday, we have the Otherworldly show, featuring many of our speakers, and similar topics. We hope you can join us Wednesday at 8. If you miss this show, the recordings are posted on Youtube Thursday or Friday.
