Podcast Episode 8: Interfaith Prayer with Joshua Berkowitz

In this week's interview, Anna Joy interviews Joshua Berkowitz, a psychic reader, astrologer and spiritual healer who, in Anna's words, is the most theologically-minded millennial she's met! In this in-depth interview, Joshua is kind enough to share alot about:

 

-being magickal as a Jewish man

 

-the limitations of the theory of the law of attraction within the mundane world and how each person has their own experience with it

 

-the subtleties of gender identity as someone who has lived as a woman and is now called to explore a non-toxic masculinity

 

-the tomboy/sissy dynamic and how our society rewards maleness and punishes femaleness

 

-how religion has historically created a caste system that queer witches must thoughtfully rise up against it without demonizing the people who suffer because of it

 

and finally, Anna Joy's fave subject:

 

-SHAME and whether or not our trauma has meaning!

 

Joshua can be reached at @jwmberkowitz on instagram or find his website www.jwmberkowitz.com

Special Addendum: After Joshua and I recorded this episode, we both had some questions about the statement that white spiritual practitioners should make their services more accessible to people of color. After some more discussion and research, we realized there is a lot more complexity to this issue than we addressed in our discussion. Specifically, it is important to understand that people of color have their own cultural spiritual practices that we as white practitioners should never attempt to overshadow. Rather than offering unrequested reduced rates for people of color, we feel it is more important for white practitioners to incorporate financial reparations to communities of color. Giving back financially and energetically to communities who’s spiritual practices have been marginalized and appropriated by white spirituality is far more important than advertising  services to people of color. If anyone has questions or suggestions about this topic that they would like addressed on the Queer Witch podcast, please send them to annajoy@annajoyhealing.com. We thank you for your attention!

Podcast Episode 4: Iyawo Oyá (Geovanny Manrique Interiano)

Today, I bring you a super valuable episode of the Queer Witch Podcast with Geovanny Manrique Interiano, who I will refer to as Iyawo because he recently was initiated into his religion, Santería!

What’s super unique about Iyawo is that his predominant spiritual contact is through dead people! He is a medium and espiritista who has had contact with the other side since he was a little baby, which he tells you all about. Iyawo was also gracious enough to give us a personal narrative of his path to discovering the right mentors and connecting with the ile (or house) that he was initiated into! He also describes the cultural diffusion of Santería as it was brought in slave ships and then dispersed across the new world. Then, we get into the connection between coming out as queer and coming out as a witch, how all religions are steeped in the dynamics of the dominant culture, and our thoughts on how and why the millennial generation is having a spiritual awakening.

Also, Iyawo has suggested a very special segment for upcoming episodes of The Queer Witch Podcast where you, the listener, can ask a question and have it answered by us! So stay tuned to the end of the episode to find out how you can participate.

To contact Iyawo for questions, tarot readings or guidance, you can find him on Facebook (Geovanny Manrique Interiano) or on Instagram @brujxs_cauldron

To submit a question for me & Iyawo to answer on the podcast, email annajoy@annajoyhealing.com or dm (and follow!) the podcast's instagram @thequeerwitch

Podcast Episode 3: Healing From Shame

One of the most common techniques I use in my personal healing practice and with my clients is shame reduction. Anyone with a marginalized identity, such as a queer one, will understand this. Shame is often something that we learned to feel about our authentic expressions from a very young age. In this solo episode, I share my understanding of shame as it manifests in an energetic context and some techniques for addressing it head on.
