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!

A Ritual To Rid A Person Of Toxic Thought Forms

This is a cool and practical idea. Well done. I shall pass it along!

Thought forms are an issue in experiential religious practice.

Plenty of people will tell you that the gods aren’t, and don’t have to be, nice. At some point, however, even these people run up against the report of deities engaging in behaviors which just seem too extreme. Whether this behavior is racist, sexist, sexually violent or evidence of what that person perceives as ignorance, we all hit a point where our ability to believe in the maliciousness of deities is pushed to the limit.

At that point, people begin to ask, “Is it really that deity, or perhaps something wearing the deity’s face?”

Yes. For me, the limits are smaller, and that questioning starts much sooner. I have an idea of what I expect from human spiritual authorities, and I am going to tell you that I expect a hell of a lot more out of deities than humans.

Toxic thought forms are probably…

(“Thinking Like a Mountain” by Robert Bateman)

In this time of accelerating environmental change, many of us feel a sense of urgency to help transform humanity’s relationship with the Earth.  This sense of urgency is what drew together a large group of diverse Pagans, including Pagan leaders, authors, artists, and bloggers from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Australia to draft “A Pagan Community Statement on the Environment.”  The working group included several members of the Humanistic Paganism community.  In honor of Earth Day, the statement has been published at where you can add your signature. The statement represents the beginning of a conversation, not the final word. Join us in our call to all people to rise to this historic moment in order to protect all life on Earth by signing the statement. You can sign on your own behalf or on behalf of a group…

For four years, I have been looking for a cat. I found the eagle, and the turtle. I found a swan, a goose, a duck and a dog that might be a horse. I found all kinds of animals out of the Dreamtime, written in the rock, from Palouse Falls, in the Snake River Watershed, to Grand Coulee in the dry post-glacial bed of the Columbia, to the Wenatchi and the Okanagan in the north of the Columbia Plateau, but the cougar eluded me. Oh, it was plain to see. Up here in the north of the Plateau, there’s a Cougar Point, right next to a Turtle Point, and a Cougar Canyon, but where on earth is the Cougar. I looked and looked. I found a Coyote!

But a cougar? A very elusive cat. I walked along the far shore of Kalamalka Lake. No cat.park1
