“The Maiden, The Mother, and Matilda” with Mara & Anna Wilson

1h 27m | Aug 18, 2021

Today on the show, the ladies are joined by everybody’s favorite childhood witch! Mara Wilson, star of Matilda, and her sister Anna Wilson, witch extraordinaire, join the ladies on this episode to chat about all things witchiness and wonder! The ladies chat about some fun facts you’ve probably never heard about the filming of Matilda, the untold dramas of Facebook foraging groups, and what the sisters’ enneagram types are. Plus, they share which Matilda characters they feel most connected to, and discuss what happens when we lose our childhood wonder and why.

  • Rachel’s synchronistic childhood connections to Matilda
  • The ways in which the Wilsons sisters are witchy
  • Foraging, goddess temples, and female archetypes
  • What Mara and Anna’s enneagram types are
