In this episode of The Healing Journey Web Series, Damien Echols and I discuss Magick, what it is and isn’t; the role Magick played in Damien surviving almost 20 years on death row, 10 of which were spent in solitary confinement; the wisdom traditions that resonate with each of us, including Magick, Zen, Wicca, Vedanta, Taoism; the Rumi quote “Everyone will taste death – but only some will taste life.”; the energetic power of words and intention and explore how The Bible is a great example of this; the difference between hope and faith and what they mean to each of us; what it’s like to be young, feel like an outcast, and how to work through that; and much more!

Damien Echols is a ceremonial magician and artist who lives in NYC with his wife and cats. He spent 18 years on death row for a crime he did not commit and wrote the book “Life after Death” about his experiences.
