This week we're talking about cultural appropriation and gate keeping in witchcraft on The How to Be Awesome Podcast. How do you know what's okay for you to do and not to do in your witchcraft practice? Let's get into it.
We proudly host our podcast with Buzzsprout.
It's the first episode of February, which means it's time for our monthly tarot reading. This reading is counselling us to slow down and find the joy in life - a beautiful message to start February off with!
Then we get into our topic for the week - cultural appropriation and gatekeeping in witchcraft and the spiritual community. We talk about what it means to gatekeep information, as well as our thoughts on using traditions and rituals from other cultures.
We finish up with Renee feeling awesome about taking time to rest, and Louise getting super excited about the secret life of plants.
