Contest Time!

•August 28, 2014 • Leave a Comment

So a few days ago a friend of mine informed me that I had a small problem:

Important notice: it appears that there are a few defective copies of my book out there! One of my friends ordered from Amazon, and found that instead of getting pages 85-132 inclusive, he received a book with two sections of pages 133-180. If you are one such unlucky soul, please contact Red Wheel/Weiser customer service at or 1-800-423-7087 with your address and they will be happy to replace your copy. Sorry for the inconvenience!

So I have decided to run a contest! If you find a misprinted copy of the book, take a picture or webcam video of you holding the book, showing me the misprinted pages, and I will send you a code for a free download of the Elemental CD with Isochronic Tones that I composed for use with the book! Link below:

Contact me via this blog (with a link,) my website, my Facebook author page, or my Twitter. Good luck!

Seekers and Guides: How to Deal with Antagonists in Paganism

•October 2, 2015 • Leave a Comment

One thing that I took away from the recent conflict in my own tradition was that a good portion of this article is useless in the Pagan community because of the way we’re structured as opposed to the way Christian church organizations are. In this article I will present solutions of how to deal with Antagonists, and suggest alternatives that may be more effective in Pagan groups. (Part 3 of 4)

The Wild Hunt is Riding

My post from Gods & Radicals the day before the supermoon eclipse

Originally posted on GODS & RADICALS:

“As far as practitioners of nature spiritualities are concerned, the Wild Hunt offers an initiation into the wild and an opening up of the senses; a sense of dissolution of self in confrontation with fear and death, an exposure to a ‘whirlwind pulse that runs through life’. In short, engagement with the Hunt is a bid to restore a reciprocity and harmony between humans and nature.”

The word has spread around the blogosphere; the Wild Hunt is riding.

It’s early.  Really early. For me, they rode in to BC and the Pacific Northwest US on the night of the last full moon, riding with the great storm.

Some say they’re riding against Daesh for their desecration of ancient Pagan religious sites.  Some say they’re riding for something else.  I think there’s a lot…

Hera Gives A Dissertation on Modern Marriage

•September 21, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Sable Aradia:

I saw that peacock and I was thinking, “Holy shit! I better listen!” Hera does not debate. Hera is a Queen and She gives pronouncements. I like Her pronouncements and I am passing them along. I am certain She is speaking primarily to Hellenismos but Pagans who call upon the pantheon at all would do well to take note I think.

Originally posted on Magick From Scratch:

So, Hera knocked today and asked me to take dictation on the subject of marriage ceremonies. Why she is, in particular, coming to me with this, I have no idea. It is very unlikely that I will be asked to officiate a wedding any time soon, and it is furthermore unlikely that I’ll have time to write a marriage ceremony any time before March.

Nevertheless, her ideas are very interesting. She seems to be looking to broaden marriage as it pertains to her office, and generally to be invited to more weddings. Because of course she is. Would you prefer one snacky cake or two snacky cakes?

One minor thing which might need explaining, because it certainly confused me, is why Hera is saying that a lock of hair should no longer be cut. I pressed her for an explanation, and just got a sense of “all those things” as though…

Sorry about the lack of posts this week — the next one in my series is taking longer than I thought it would, and I’ve been busy with Sabbat celebrations.  So I thought I would share a couple of Autumn Equinox related recipes from my personal formulary.
