A bit of ritual, a bit of movement
« on: August 07, 2020, 07:31:09 pm »
Laura Tempest Zakroff (dancer, author, witch, other things) has started doing a series of short (10-15 minute) movement videos she's calling Witchuals.

They're on her YouTube Channel (no handy playlist at the moment).

For people who have movements they can't do (or whose bodies object to trying), most of the movements are gentle, and there's lots of encouragement to do what works for you. She's planning some chair-based ones down the road.

The themes for the day are a mix of things - some days she's pulling a card for inspiration, some days are focused on deities (for inspiration, not direct prayer/worship), etc. I've done four of the five so far, and they're just about in my perfect sweet spot for movement and stretching without too much exertion.

That looks like some good stuff. I have been doing some Tai Chi lately, but have been looking for some more"witchy" stuff to do. I have to get new earphones my old ones are breaking up. So I will watch those videos more when I get the earphones.
