  1. “That’s the one thing we can always guarantee – All Things Will Change.” But not all change is for the better.

  2. Great blog post, Cassandra. Always look forward to reading your offerings andt thoughts. xo

    • I loved the Wise Woman chant, it reminded me of what witch craft really is. It had raw energy and took you to a diffrent place. Unfortunatly the Museum has changed and not always for the better.

  3. The new recording sounds like Jackanory time. A disappointing replacement for what was something quite atmospheric.

  4. I visited the museum again at the end of August, and I must say, I’m not particularly impressed with how things have changed thus far. One of my favourite areas of the museum was dismantled in favour of a bland exhibition space for art that isn’t really related to to the museum’s original purpose. As for Joan, I always thought your recording was fitting for the time period in which the wisewoman lived. It didn’t need to be changed, in my opinion. Thanks for speaking out on this!

  6. I just came across your wonderful chant video on YouTube. How lovely to hear it again as I used to visit quite regularly in the latter 90’s and early 2000’s as we had family living in Cornwall. I have put a link on my blog so my blogging friends can also enjoy revisiting or listening for the first time.

    • Thank you Kat, I recorded Cassandra miming to the original Museum soundtrack as a nostalgic reminder of the ‘good old days’ for many of us when visiting the Museum. I personally prefer this soundtrack as it is ‘dark and edgy’! 😉 x

  7. I remember the recording very well and always liked it. I am glad that it was saved and that there’s now a video. I’m saddened by the misinformation about you having been paid for it. Everyone did everything for free back then — it didn’t really occur to people to ask our fellow Pagans for money.

  8. Thank you for sharing. I shared your bio of this with our group; the wise woman in its best form, thank you Cassandra and Laetitia for capturing and sharing wise woman roots and history of MOW.
