    PMP: Shanda Hahn Kinkade - Organizing Pagan Pride Day in a Conservative State

    in Spirituality

    Join RevKess & KaliSara to talk with Shanda Hahn Kinkade about her experience organizing Pagan Pride Days in a conservative area. Shanda has organized PPD in mid-Nebraska for three years and helped organize the PPD in Omaha this year.

    Shanda began her journey on the Pagan Path in 1989, exploring a variety of traditions. She is an eclectic Pagan who waivers between Pantheism & Nontheism. Her practice is Grey Witchcraft with focus on balance, the 4 elements, animism, humanism, and the moon with a pinch of Hedge Witch tossed in for good measure.

    She created the online group Wiccans in Nebraska (WINEB) in 2002. She joined the Rural Nebraska Witches’ Group (RNWG) via meetup.com in Mar 2007, and became co-organizer in Sept of that year. Apr 2013, she became a ritualist with Prairie Star Circle and later became lead ritualist (Jun 2013) before taking over all leading aspects Dec 2013.

    Shanda has conducted workshops and classes, led group rituals, organized adult night-out events, ran a divination study group, presided over weddings, and taught a multiple-day seminar on Ritualist & Leadership training.

    After a move in 2014, Shanda is still co-organizer of RNWG with most work being behind the scenes and she has remained the Local Coordinator for Kearney Area Pagan Pride. She is Secretary for the Black Hat Society of Omaha, a member of the Pagan Pride Day Omaha planning committee, and attends rituals with a local Druid Group, Prairie Shadow Grove.

    Postpartum Depression And Its Treatment

    in Parents

    Do you know that 1 in 8 women suffer from postpartum depression (PPD), according to Postpartum Support International (PSI)?

    "Maternal illness is not new. It was recognized as early as the fifth century B.C., when Hippocrates proposed that fluid from the uterus could flow to the head after childbirth and cause delirium. In the Middle Ages, mothers with such symptoms were viewed as witches or victims of witchcraft. " Belluck, P. (2014, June 15). Thinking of Ways to Harm Her. The New York Times. Retrieved from http://www.nytimes.com

    We've come a long way in understanding postpartum depression but we still need to work on de-stigmatizing the illness, and raise awareness on what PPD is, and most importantly, we need to implement successful tools to identify women mostly vulnerable to PPD, so treatment can start as soon as possible.

    Our guest today is Carly Snyder, M.D. , a psychiatrist in New York City with a focus and expertise in Reproductive Psychiatry.
