This episode I speak with Victoria who started and maintains Freya Prayer Day. Victoria shares about why she created Freya Prayer Day, her relationship with Freya, and about her practice in general. And we have a nice time as friends chatting about the Goddess Whom we love and Who has called us to her fold.
