Archives Available on VoiceAmerica 7th Wave Channel
The intention of “Spiritually Speaking: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Needs” is to introduce wholistic principles and to explore alternative spiritual perspectives such as Wicca, Paganism and Shamanism. It will educate, inform and enrich you as to the real practical value of Wicca as an earth-based spirituality that helps people with practical tools for introspection, self-cultivation and social action. This show will also debunk the bad press and false negative perspective that Wicca has anything to do with the devil -it does not. In this show Lady Red Hawk will interview Wiccan and Pagan leaders, teachers and writers, take questions from listeners as well as present her personal perspective on this spirituality in its rich diversity and creativity.
Suzy Peltier, also known as Lady Red Hawk
Suzy Peltier aka Lady Red Hawk has served the Goddess and the principle of wholism (holism) for over twenty years as a Third Degree Wiccan Priestess, Reiki Master Teacher, Massage Therapist, and Hypnotherapist. She is also a Reverend with the Universal Life Church. She does Interfaith work, Hospice and full clergy services. With a background in medical anthropology, Suzy has been pursuing a burning question: “How is ritual used for healing?” Nearly twenty years ago she established Dragon Spirit Taoist Wiccan Circle, which continues to grow with practitioners and circles across the U.S and as far as Ireland, France and Peru. From this experience was born the vision and "new tradition" of Taoist Wicca and the upcoming book entitled: "The Wisdom of the Seasons: A Guide to Wicca, the Chakras and the Tao."
Lady Red Hawk has frequently presented her system of Taoist Wicca as a workshop at the annual Pagan and Wiccan Conference called “Pantheacon” Hosted by Ancient Ways. She has also produced a number of informative videos about Wicca that can be seen on her Suzy Peltier YouTube channel and on her Facebook Taoist Wicca Page.
