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!

Grandmother of the Revolution

•January 24, 2018 • Leave a Comment


“Because revolutions don’t only spread like wildfire, they spread like forests and especially trees. An old tree puts out many seeds that become saplings that become trees of their own. And then those trees put out more seeds, more saplings, more trees, and next thing you know the world is a forest again.”

A brief tribute to Ursula K. Le Guin, from Rhyd Wildermuth

“To die was merely to go on in another direction.”

Ursula K. Le Guin has died. Or returned.  Or really, she’s merely gone off in another direction.

There will be a thousand tributes and remembrances to her. You should read them all, even if you’ve never read her work. Especially if you’ve never read her work. Because you’ve no doubt noticed all the really cool inspiring mystical/anarcho/revolutionary sorts you know are all in tears right now, like they’re mourning their favorite grandmother.

Because we are.

Diane Morrison

One of my favourite authors, and personal heroines, died on Monday. I am grieving, as I’m sure many of her fans are, and I’d like to send out my deepest condolences to her friends and family.  The world has lost a great light.  But what is remembered, lives, so here’s a tribute I put together for her, and a list of some of my personal favourites of her quotations.  The video features quotes mostly about the nature of life:

On Activism:

On Writing:

On Human Nature:

Why People Are Racist & How Witchcraft Can Help

•November 21, 2017 • Leave a Comment

A caveat: I have mentioned some friends in this article. They have not necessarily been portrayed at their most positive, and this is why I have not named them. We all have faults and we all make mistakes. This does not make us bad people, it makes us human. I have cited these examples because these are the examples I have to cite, and to me, they illustrate my point; how the environment of toxic positivity about which I speak can cause even the nicest, smartest people to be unintentionally mean or foolish. I mean no harm. You are still my friends. I still love you.

Beyond Mere Witchcraft

“Oh, I used to study Wicca,” says the 22-year-old woman with a patronizing smile, “but I’ve gone beyond that now.”

“Have you?” I ask, arching my eyebrow while I sit at the fair table where I’m selling the witchcraft books I wrote.

Realizing she has made an error, she backtracks.  “Oh, well, you know, I think it’s perfectly fine for some.”  She is unaware of her derision, her dismissal.  “But I find I get so much more in the path I’m following now.  And I don’t need all those tools.”  Her tone is smug.  Her implication is clearly that I must be less enlightened than she is, because she thinks I do.

Of course she does.  She’s left witchcraft for the New Age community.  She’s 22 years…
