SERMONS & FEASTS: SPIRIT DOGS, TURTLE MEDICINE, OTTER PELTS, & WOLF WOMEN | Your ONN Host | Philippe

Having no guest for this episode, we spend a rainy, snowy early winter morning reading stories by the fire. First we start locally, with two short folk tales from my mountains about spirit dogs and 'jack-ma-lanterns' read from  Virginia Folk Legends edited by Thomas E. Barden.  Next, I find the answer to my question about otter edibility in Norse mythology through a misadventure of Odin  & Loki who must fill a magician's otter pelt with gold, read from The Norse Myths retold by Kevin Crossley-Holland.  Then we visit the words of a great oracle, Clarissa Pinkola Estés to hear about the powerful feminine archetype of The Bone Collector read from Women Who Run with the Wolves. We wrap up this winter episode with a heartwarming bowl of turtle medicine soup from Wildwoods Wisdom: Encounters with the Natural World by the legendary Appalachian naturalist & folklorist Doug Elliott.  Check out these wonderful reads through the links above.Follow Our Numinous Nature & my naturalist illustrations on InstagramCheck out my shop of shirts, prints, and books featuring my artContact: herbaceoushuman@gmail.com
