Druids In Cars, Going To Festivals
Episode 80 - Travel Spirits, Stopovers, and the Spirit of Couch Surfing

Episode 80 - Travel Spirits, Stopovers, and the Spirit of Couch Surfing

July 21, 2021

We sit down to discuss the sorts of things we seek out when we travel: the weird religious sites, the haunted tunnels, and the wonderful hospitality of our friends.

And, of course, there's an off-the-cuff prayer to the Spirit of Couch Surfing, a solid contestant for patron of this podcast.

We recorded this not in cars, but during a local, non-Pagan travel event we were both involved in. But there's way more to come.

So, find us on Facebook, check us out at Threecranes.org, and learn more about Druidry at adf.org.

For those curious, Rev. Avende's prayer, "Upon Encountering the Murder Ghost" from the #PrayerADay Project, Nov. 9, 2018:

Hermes Diactorus, Guide of Souls,
As we traveled tonight through the dark,
Sleet bouncing off the windshield, 
Reflectors marking the road few and far between,
I thank you for traveling alongside us. 

Hermes Diactorus, Guide of Souls,
For holding the ghosts at bay as the fog rose about us,
For keeping the shades back as we sped beneath the underpass,
For maintaining the boundary and keeping us safe from those spirits who wish us harm,
I thank you for traveling alongside us. 

Hermes Diactorus, Guide of Souls,
Carry those spirits onward to peace,
Remove them and their malevolent intentions from this world. 
Hermes, I thank you for your important work. 

Episode 79 - Spirituality and Religion

Episode 79 - Spirituality and Religion

July 15, 2021

Today, we took a listener question from an OBOD listener who wanted to know our take on the differences between spirituality and religion. We start with some dictionary definitions and work our way through our own experiences.

This discussion sort of takes off from some of the ideas about orthopraxy in our previous episode, so you might be interested to tune in there as well, though this episode certainly stands alone.

If you want to hear more about this idea that "Practice Begets Belief," you can find a 2012 podcast MJD did with BT Newberg over at Naturalistic Paganism. (Fun historical note: this was MJD's first experience on a podcast.)

Episode 78 - Orthodoxy, Orthopraxy, and Orthoskhesis

Episode 78 - Orthodoxy, Orthopraxy, and Orthoskhesis

July 1, 2021

Today, we get a new vocabulary word in "orthoskhesis," a word meaning "right relationship" (versus "right belief" with orthodoxy, or "right practice" with orthopraxy). We talk a bit about how we might use this in the way we think about Druidry and Paganism in general, and about how we can be not only in a right relationship, but also in a wrong relationship (spoiler alert: it's mostly "can I set healthy boundaries?").

If you're interested in the Greekies mentioned toward the end of the discussion, you can get a look at them at The Magical Druid.
