Laura Perry, Pagan author and artist, fascinated by ancient cultures and spirituality has immersed herself in reconstructing Minoan Paganism by way of a Minoan Tarot deck, a Minoan-themed adult coloring book and she teaches online courses in Modern Minoan Paganism, which her group practices. Tune in to find out why Minoal Paganism is relevant now, if its mostly for lesbians, if its female-centric and why heterosexual men would be interested in the spirituality. Laura will explain what we know about what Minoans believed and practiced and how she and her group have extrapolated that into a contemporary practice as close to the original as possible. We'll also talk about how the ancient religion and society became skewed by later Greek writers from patriarchal societies. Laura is the author of Labrys and Horns: An Introduction to Modern Minoan Paganism, her most recent book. Should be very interesting!
Second guest tonight, returning to the show, we have beloved foremother and social justice activist, Starhawk, discussing the Fall release of her new audio book The Fifth Sacred Thing.
