A few years ago, when I still owned a metaphysical shop, we used to have an open event once a month that we called “The Medium, the Witch and the Shaman.” My friends Lois Gueret (the Medium) and Victoria Willard (the Shaman) and I would propose a topic and invite people to come and discuss it, from our various perspectives. Then we would record it, do some minor editing and air it as a podcast.
We were approached by CBC to do a slot on us as part of their faith series “More Than One Way Home.” Lois recently reposted this link and so I had it in mind, and thought I would share.
“So a medium, a witch and a shaman walk into a church…”
It’s a new-age take on an old joke. But nobody is the butt of the punch-line, because for the three women in the third of Madonna Hamel’s faith series, “‘we’re all in this together.”
In this edition of our series More Than One Way Home, we check out that box marked “other” on Census Canada’s religion survey.
The episode looks at the ways people are incorporating elements of alternative spiritual and healing practices into their lives.
Madonna spoke with Lois Gueret, Diane Morrison and Victoria Willard to find out how and why they left the church to get back to God.”
