Charlye -- Healer, Baby Pagan, Eclectic Witch
After a lifetime of not knowing how to classify herself, or what she believed, Charlye finally felt a sense of coming home when she observed her first solitary Samhain ritual in 2017. Since then, she has been devouring every bit of information, and misinformation, she could get her hands on. Often asking herself, “why is being true to yourself so fucking hard”?
Macy -- Empath, Health Enthusiast, Earth Witch
After practicing her first smudge ritual in 2017 and feeling an overwhelming sense of belonging and power pulse through her body. Macy, like Charlye, is on a path of exploration. Interested in energies of flora and fauna, Macy feels very tied to the woods and animals that live within them. Macy thrives on procrastination and improvisation, so her segments on the show are typically on the spot. Which she hopes is a good thing?
