Therapy for Witches
Rather than being a podcast about educating you on how to be a witch, Basic Witches is a pod about how to be a person...as told to you by witches. There is shockingly not a lot of content out there for witches that’s just about navigating life and adulthood, which is why I love this pod so much! Witchcraft is all about feeling empowered to change your reality, and this podcast focuses on how you empower and love yourself, not about the spells you use or the books you read. It’s such a joy to tune in every week for this pod and listen to witchy and non-witchy folks talk about how they are learning to connect better with themselves, their partners, the environment, and the universe!
