African American writer Alexis P. Morgan may not carry a
physical sword but her words cut clear into the heart of the matter
and when I realised that the woman behind such powerful words was
founded in the old Northern Folkways of Asetru as well as Vodoo, I
could not help but ask the question how on earth did that
In this episode of The Magdalene Voices Alexis shares openly
with us how the nordic faith of Asetru literally hit her on the
head and then dragged her almost kicking and screaming into it, as
is often the case for many of us when God (or whatever you
want to call it) calls.
I invite you to join us as Alexis graciously shares not only her
journey, but also enormous wealth of knowledge and wisdom about
two, perhaps lesser known, faiths and how she practices these.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU WILL HEAR
ALEXIS AND I TALK ABOUT:
- Why and how, she an African American woman converted to Asetru
- How she world walked within when she was unable to practice
- How the terms God or Goddess as well as the Christian faith did
not vibe with her.
- The resonating answer to the profound question of how her
ancestors survived what was seemingly unsurvivable.
- How christianity is part of whitenesses problem. The
colonialism, protecting and validating colonialism as well as the
spread of Christianity for the protection of the soul of
- What part Vodoo plays in her practice.
- How practicing a faith that at its core practices animal
sacrifice has made Alexis more vegan and conscious about our animal
kingdom, agriculture and planet as a whole.
- How lots gets taken out of context and painted as evil or
heathen largely because of assimilation and because white people
are afraid of black people who have power.
- The function of violence and how we haven’t assigned a healthy
place to it.
- How giving voice to anger creates freedom.
- – and much, much more…
