Book Review: Esoteric Empathy by Raven Digitalis

Today we find ourselves in a world fraught with tension and misunderstanding. Communication is changing rapidly. It’s the age of “alternative facts” and twitter shame.  But it’s always the case that the world seems to be on the cusp of great change, isn’t it? The reality is probably that our moment of great change, our…

An Earth Centered Practice with Allergies

March is the one month when my mother gives up on our entire family. She threatens, yearly, to leave the county and us behind until the terror of Maple tree pollen is gone. All my siblings, my father, and I have strong allergic reactions to tree pollen. Of course, our allergies aren’t limited to a species…

Called to Leadership

I have served as a “leader” since I was a small child. My first memory of leading anything was in first grade. The Elementary School was undergoing construction. The tree that grew outside of the first grade classrooms was scheduled for removal. My friends and I were heartbroken and vowed to save the tree. We…

Ain’t No Satisfaction

Again, I come crawling back to this blog after an absence I had no intention of taking. I really, really want to be posting once a week. I love the outlet, and I love the people I connect with here on the blog and on youtube. It just ends up being the thing that is…

Wedding Reception Details

In this post I want to share some of the details of our wedding reception. I hope that this will give people ideas that can make wedding planning simple and fun.

Book Review: A Romantic Guide to Handfasting

As some of you who follow me on instagram, youtube, or this blog know Brad and I got engaged at the beginning of December. Neither of us wanted to have a long, drawn out engagement. Winter is my favorite season; Winter is also a convenient season to host a wedding and reduce the cost of…

2017 Planner and Core Desired Feelings

Happy New Year! I know that most people do their new year post at the beginning of January. I was just too busy at that time dreaming up exactly how I wanted to curate a fantastic 2017 for myself to post all the details at that point. I think that it’s going to be a…

Book Review: Pagan Dreaming by Nimue Brown

The most important magic is what happens in my mind; in the leaps of connection and insight and often quite random things can spark that. The important bit is the way our wiser, unconscious minds can be triggered into recognition by the introduction of some random element. – Nimue Brown For too long the world…

Creating My Book of Awen

The magical arts are often associated with aging books of wisdom filled with spells, rituals, and arcane knowledge. Modern media sources like Charmed or BBC’s Merlin show big, chunky books of magic that house botanical prints and all sorts of magical incantations and crystals. It is no surprise that these ideas and images influence Pagans…
