This week we have my friend and fellow priest, Denise Cicuto, who has been running a memorial ritual called Spirit Babies for the last several years. This ritual is for anyone of any gender who has experienced the loss of a child through abortion, still birth, miscarriage, or for any other reason. Denise shares her personal story and why she believes this ceremony is important.
This podcast is in conjunction with the next Spirit Babies ceremony which will be held on December 20, 2014 at City of Refuge UCC in Oakland, CA. For more information, please see the Spirit Babies website.
Denise Cicuto is a Witch and Healer. She is a second degree Priest in the Circle of Cerridwen, a coven in the Open Source Alexandrian tradition. She was raised in the Catholic Church and then went to find her own way for a while. Between the Worlds Church made her realize that she could still have Jesus in her life while being a practicing pagan. Denise is also a Licensed Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist.
NOTE: ANY anti-abortion proselytizing, harassment, or hate speech will NOT be tolerated in the comments. Anyone engaging in this behavior will be banned from the comments section. We at This Week in Heresy are committed to creating a safe, inclusive space, and we will not hesitate to call law enforcement if necessary.
