Tara Bliss, my guest on The Priestess Podcast today, believes that the ultimate form of spiritual rebellion is being ourselves. And choosing to be ourselves over and over again every day. This may sound easy, but we all live in a world where constructs and systemic oppressions try and mould us to be something we are not - in so many ways. Choosing to go against the grain, leave something behind, outgrow someone - including a spiritual guide or teacher - is not easy. It requires a bold and rebellious spirit driven by curiosity, and fuelled by discernment and sovereignty. Tara shares with us today her life and spiritual journey of conscious rebellion and how important it is to her and her mentoring work today.
The work of Dr Sharon Blackie has been profound in my spiritual journey. In other more simplistic terms - I’m a fan girl - and this episode today is probably going to show that to you quite quickly. Sharon’s work as a Celtic mythologist and author is lyrical, powerful, beautiful and strong. In particular her work has supported me on my own priestess and spiritual journey to feel more deeply into my own cultural background and ancestry as a woman of chiefly Scottish, Irish, Welsh and English make up. It is a dream come true for me to have her as a guest on The Priestess Podcast and I am overjoyed she is our first guest for this new season. Welcome to 2019!
