Wheel of Wonder June 28 2009

This week's Wheel of Wonder will focus on Shamanism, with new music from John Huling, Native American Flutist and even some tracks from Faun Fables. I'll also introduce concepts from Articles by Shamanic Healer Alberto Villoldo, and developer of the Core Shamanism school of thought Michael Harner. I will also try to collect information from the Book Animal-Speak by Ted Andrews.

Wheel of Wonder for Litha 2009 or, Never mind what I said before.....

Well it appears that someone heard me speak of my occasional dissapointment for having the radio show on so late (see the new timeslot in the header above). I am happy to be beginning to broadcast the show after sunrise on the Solstice! Come dance with me, Damh, and Chris Bingham, Moving Breath and Denean! We will celebrate the change in the Wheel of Wonder timeslot with a great Solstice show, in which I intend to include live (pre-recorded) interviews from the Fremont Solstice Parade, an annual Seattle tradition organized by the Fremont Arts Council (which occurs on Saturday, the 2oth of June, starting at 12pm)! There are many places on the net to find pictures from the Fremont Solstice Parade, even pictures of the Solstice Cyclists. I will also share information on the holiday from Pagan educational writer Patti Wiggington

Wheel Of Wonder June 16 2009

June 16th Wheel of Wonder will focus on the triple goddess in all her aspects as maiden, mother and crone and the symbolism of these three phases of the divine feminine. The content will include entries from Book of Shadows online and new music by Kellianna and Wendy Rule. This will be the last late Tuesday night Wheel of Wonder for a while, so listen for Wheel of Wonder at its new time 6am-9am Sunday morning just before New Dimensions, on KAOS 89.3 FM!

The experience of doing the Radio Show.

I've done nine Wheel of Wonder shows now, including the three one-hour Rookie Radio slots on KAOS 89.3 FM Olympia Community Radio. Each show is its own microcosm of musical outreach and education. It's high time to be able to clarify the real perspective of the witch, druid, bard, shaman or sustainable community builder. I've had the opportunity to speak of the Celtic year, the symbolism and meaning of the cauldron, the crone, the pentagram, some of the New Age Movement, and the importance of the sacred, historic and mythic stories and how they incarnate in our real lives. I have even been able to share works of journalism focused on modern witch hunts. (Yes, they do still happen.)

I am so thankful that KAOS is around; everyone here is part of a very supportive community. KAOS's mission is to make available a medium of expression for marginalized and minority voices (like Pagans and other earth spiritualists), issues of social justice, and promoting the work of independent artists. I occasionally regret that the show is on at such late an hour (1-3pm Pacific Standard Time, although you can stream it on the Web. It is worth listening to if you're one of those late night people, or you work a graveyard shift and have access to a radio. But, overall I'm thankful to both the human and the divine for having this opportunity.

As I learn more about blogging, I look forward to posting to the site more links to blogs of note, artists, writers, and activists. I look forward to posting pictures, playlists, and of course past scripts from Wheel of Wonder. Follow the journey. You'll find it worthwhile.

A Warrior's Path


"Warrior Story"
This week on Wheel of Wonder, we'll discuss the path of the pagan warrior. Whether Asatru (norse pagan), Druidic, or a person walking the path of the peaceful warrior, there will stories, explanations, and of course music, by or about earth spiritualists on the warrior path.
