Regenerative Living: The magic of Paganism, Wicca & Druidism, with Witch, Artist, Community Holder and Engineer, Raevyn Arwen (aka Ketsia Elizabeth)
Hello and welcome to episode 5 of season 3 — our 18th episode of the WitchHunt podcast!
What are some of the first words you associate with the word witch? If the words pagan or wicca or maybe even druidism come up for you, and you want to dive more into these as concepts and practices, then this episode is for you. Because in this episode we speak, for the first time, with a Witch who lives the Wicca and Pagan traditions.
Raeven Arwen, also known as Ketsia Elizabeth, shares how she began her journey of putting words to her witchy experience at the age of 13. She talks about the being and doing dance of Pagan and Wicca tradition, more recently exploring a more artistic approach to her witchcraft, through Druidism.
Raeven is a multi-passionate witch, who also happens to be an engineer. She talks about embracing her Celtic roots and we have a fascinating chat about the links between paganism, developing a reverent relationship with the Earth, environmentalism, food justice and agriculture. And how all of this feels like a new regenerative way forward for our species.
This is a fascinating episode with another fascinating woman.
