    Interview – Cat Gina Cole, Author of “Psychic Skills for Magic and Witchcraft”

    Interview — David Shi, Author of The Mysteries and Magic of North Asian Shamanism

    Linda Bischoff (PaganPages.Org): In your book “Spirit Voices” you talk about your background and your path to where you are today – is there anything else that you’d like to add? What do you see your future path looking like? David Shi: Yes – thank you. I grew up in what I would term an Atheist family meaning that I was raised by parents with a mindset of believing in hard science; somewhat of a STEM perspective.
