Building Empathy in
These Tough Times
by Kerri Connor
Life is made up of both the good and the bad; without the bad times, we

a tough time, it is becoming increasingly rare to find empathy from
others. Kerri Connor, author of Spells for Tough Times, explains why we need to

1. Your new book is Spells for Tough Times. What types of spells are included in the
for Tough Times includes all kinds of spells. There are

by Mambo Chita Tann
At the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere,
plants and trees awaken from dormancy, animals awaken from hibernation,
and human thoughts turn to cleaning, cherry blossoms, and young love.
At the same time, the Roman Catholic Church and a significant portion
of the world’s Christians engage in Lent. What is Lent, anyway, and is
it relevant for those who practice more than one religion, or
religion(s) that aren’t Christian? Mambo Chita Tann, author of Haitian Vodou, describes the Haitian Vodou
practices for Lent—and how we all, regardless of religious belief or
affiliation, can benefit from a brief period of quiet and cleansing.
