The Numinous Podcast 89: The Journey of the Psychopomp with Cat Webb

TNP89-Cat-Webb-2.jpg

"Classically speaking, a psychopomp is a deity or supernatural being who would guide the souls of the dead to their resting place in the afterlife. In modern parlance, a psychopomp acts as “an energetic Soul Midwife to the dead or dying“.

Cat Webb is a psychopomp, oracle, creatrix, mystic and teacher. So naturally, this was a fabulous conversation!

We talk about patriarchy, good spiritual hygiene, dealing with a death-phobic society – specifically how to care for the dying when there are family members resisting – and so, so, so much more.

Cat's 2 cents: This was a super fun and interesting interview to do and touched upon many aspects of the mystical and deathy processes we will all face at some point.

Upon listening to the download I realized *Carmen introduces me as a Shaman. 
I would like to note I am not a Shaman and have never claimed to be such. In respecting traditions and terminology, and in a sincere desire to avoid cultural appropriation, any use of the word shaman is strictly a reference to a way of working with energy, and not a mis-appropriated title. 

Also upon listening, as a non-binary person, I recognise my error in referring to females as folks who are born with a uterus, I did correct myself further along in the interview but I would like to apologize to any folks I may have offended. Walking the path of healing means honouring our mistakes as learning opportunities. 

Thank you for listening. Big Love.

Paranormal Palliative Perspectives

Recently I got to spend some quality time with my awesome deathy colleagues at the Surrey Hospice Society's : The Beginning of a Conversation Event.

I was honoured to speak publically on the themes of Paranormal Palliative Perspectives and Psychopomp Workings... clickie the video... its about 27 min long ;)


This is the original presentation guideline for those who want to get fancy with it... 

We currently facing a mental health epidemic in our society. As a result many end of life caregivers live in fear of speaking about extra sensory experiences. 
Taking into account the generous spiritual teachings across cultures and throughout time we witness a sacred tapestry of DNA and story-lines carried through the generations. We witness that caretakers have always been the highly intuitive and compassionate threads that hold it all together.  
We witness the normal interwoven with the paranormal.
By acknowledging the wisdom of the ages we can re-create healthy spaces for ourselves, our clients, and their families to feel safe, heard and understood.
