S9 Ep19 – Debunking Modern Witchcraft And Other New Age Practices With Don Martin

The past few years there’s been a focus on individuals, being called to start to recognise and unpack our privilege, and look at behaviours or actions that might be harmful to others. The new age world has come under fire for things like cultural appropriation, toxic positivity and victim blaming. But is it all bad?

Does that mean we need to walk away from these new age spiritual practices altogether? Or is there a way we can do them that is in integrity and causes no harm?

In this episode, we are joined by the incredible Don Martin. Don is the host of the Head on Fire podcast, and author of the book The Dabblers Guide to Witchcraft – a book that I’m really loving right now.

He’s also published two collections of poetry – the first is called “The Playground” and the most recent is called “While I wait to be a god again

Don is here to do a big debunking of modern witchcraft and share with us how to create spiritual practices and rituals that work for us, and cause no harm.


In this episode, you’ll learn about the following topics related to witchcraft:

  • Debunking the modern witchcraft
  • Wicca vs. Witchcraft vs. Paganism
  • Cultural appropriation vs. Cultural appreciation
  • Calling positivity, a “toxic positivity”
  • Exploring spirituality without harming anyone
