"The call that inspires the spiritual warrior in her journey is the call to discover authenticity and freedom within herself and to embody that in her life. Answering this call does not demand that we divorce our partners, leave our children or renounce our jobs and aspirations. It does require us to question whether the forms and roles we have chosen communicate the values and wisdom we honour."

Centurion (dir. Neil Marshall, 2010)

Norse shamanism. The name “völva” means simply “woman with a staff”. The staff, in Norse also called “gandur” (refer to the English word “wand”), was a symbol of power and, like in this case, control of the supernatural. The bishop’s crozier, the king’s sceptre and the magician’s magic wand are relics from this special kind of symbolism. The Norse word “gandur” means both wand and magic in modern Faroese and Icelandic.

✯ Aunt Caroline Dye was a famous hoodoo woman or two-headed doctor who lived in Newport, Arkansas. A spiritualist as well as a root worker, for the crudely sketched aura around her head and the winged, dog-headed figure with its hand or paw on her right shoulder-like her name were drawn on the film negative - indicate that she maintained contact with other-worldly spirits. The standing figure may represent a "spirit guide" or the Devil's black dog one meets at the crossroads.✯

Entering the terrain of wisdom occurs at any age. We sometimes step, sometimes stumble, and other times we are pulled into the territory of the Crone when the need for a deeper, larger understanding of our most meaningful path can no longer be denied—when the gifts hidden in our challenges must be brought forth. -Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
