TWIH Episode 66: Wholeness and Humanness with Laine DeLaney #pantheacon

by

Laine DeLaney joins us in this episode to talk about her journey from her childhood religion of Islam to her current Heathen and magickal traditions.  What does it mean to be a Heathen? Do you have to be of Northern European descent to be a “proper Heathen”? Is there really such a thing as an “unbroken” tradition? Why is hospitality important? We also talk about how accepting people as they identify themselves and accepting their humanness is important in accepting the “Other.”

This is part of a series of interviews with people who will be presenting at Pantheacon 2016.

Laine DeLaney was born in Western New York and has spent much of her life trying to escape its pull, but recently has made a new home in San Diego, California. She has been a member of several traditions and has acted as a clergyperson, spiritual guide, and seeress for various groups and communities. Laine writes for pleasure (science fiction on her Empyrean Dreams blog and other random fiction), for profit (as a custom content creator), for activism (in her columns in various LGBT publications), to discuss Pagan issues (on The Lady’s Quill on Patheos Pagan and Pagan Church Lady on WordPress), and because she has difficulty stopping.

TWIH Episode 63: Druidism, Accessibility, and Music with Elly Hadaway

by

In this episode we talk to Elly Hadaway who is a musician, Druid, and Quaker, who is disabled. We talk about the intersections between Druidism and Quakerism, accessibility and sometimes lack thereof, in the pagan community, and her recently released EP “Tell Me Where the Ocean Went” (which you can buy through the BandCamp link below). The song at the end of the show is “I Am The Mountain” from her new album.

Elly Hadaway is an English folk singer, ukulele player and songwriter, who’s also been a jazz bass player, classical soprano and choral composer. They are a Christo-Pagan Druid, and their work draws on a deep love of nature and a fascination with the stories that lie in landscapes. They spend rather too much time being stuck inside due to their disabilities, and far too little time yomping up mountains and engaging with the Gods.”

TWIH Episode 44: The Power of the Mustard Seed with Fred-Allen Self

by

In this episode, we talk to Rev.Fred-Allen Self, who tells his story about realizing his true self, leaving his fundamentalist Christian background, and how he got to where he is in his ministry today. We also talk about how representation is not only important but can literally save lives, how “Fundamentalism” transcends religious or political tradition, and the promise of youth and the internet. 

Note: The prisoner on death row who writes about the prison system is Mumia Abu-Jamal. (Apologies for not remembering his name in the interview.) 

Fred-Allen Self is a minister of the Progressive Christian Alliance. A one time fundamentalist Christian, he is now passionate about a more inclusive view of the Gospel. He is currently a MDiv Student at Chicago Theological Seminary. In his downtime he loves nothing more than to spend time with his husband and three beautiful daughters.
