This episode we take a break from our regular format to bring you a recording of the Fire in the Hearth Conference!
Brendan and Juniper eat lots of rabbit stew, get drunk, and then decide to record a podcast!
This episode does not feature Bren’s squeaky chair, instead we have a special guest: Bren’s ticking clock.
We also introduce our always present but usually silent third host: Crash the dog.
The wine for this episode is a Jackson-Triggs Merlot, from the Niagara region of Ontario and the Vancouver 2010 official Olympics official wine.
The incense for this episode is Juniper’s 2009 blend of Flying Incense. While we do joke about using this incense in the episode we do caution people to treat such things with respect and to KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. This is a blend of mainly mugwort, a dash of wormwood, a few juniper berries, a pinch of mistletoe, some lavender flowers and a few yew leaves. Make and use at your own risk folks.
For those who are interested, the rabbit stew recipe will be posted on Juniper’s blog and on Walking the Hedge … when Juni gets around to it.
In the Middle:
The "Fire in the Hearth" conference took place in the Bronson Centre, Ottawa, Ontario, in July of 2009, and was organised by Red Maple Grove ADF.
The voices that you hear on the recording are:
Daniel Lemarche (moderator) - member of Thornhaven Grove ADF and regional co-ordinator for eastern Canada.
Isaac Bonewits, founder and past Archdruid of ADF, author of "Real Magic", and "Real Energy", and "Neopagan Rites", etc. etc. etc.
Dr. Shelley Rabinovitch, professor of anthropology, religious studies, and women's studies at the University of Ottawa, author of "An Ye Harm None", and "The Encyclopaedia of Modern Witchcraft and Neo-Paganism".
Linda Demissy, a Reiki practitioner and NLP councillor from Montreal.
Dr. Brendan Myers who just happened to be walking outside the venue just before it began, so Dan grabbed him by the collar and put him on the stage. Luckily he had a speech already prepared. And a few books to plug too.
In the closing segment Bren and Juni are even more drunk.
Bren tells us who the mysterious philosopher was from episode two and discusses some of his works, you’ll have to have a listen to find out who that is.
Juniper can’t pronounce Imbolg correctly and we generally make asses of ourselves.
