About Lisa

I’m a Witch, a Priestess, and a writer living in the Pacific Northwest for more than a 20 years. I am the author of three books: The Virtual Pagan (Red Wheel/Weiser, 2002), CyberCoven.Org (self-published ebook, 2004), and Magickal Connections: Creating a Healthy and Lasting Spiritual Group (New Page, 2007). I have contributed to the Magic on the Edge anthology (Immanion Press, 2006), the Pop Culture Grimoire (Immanion Press, 2008), and the Pagan Leadership Anthology.

I coordinated the Review Circle for The Beltane Papers for seven years which became the model for Facing North: A Community Resource, the web space I founded in 2006. There we offer hundreds of reviews items of interest to the Pagan/New Age/Spiritual community.

Over the years I have contributed articles to several magazines, including Witches & Pagans, SageWoman, PanGaia, newWitch, and The Blessed Bee. I have contributed to several Llewellyn annuals. My work can be found online at BeliefNet, PaganNews, and London Bytes (the journal of the University of Western Ontario).

Since 2000 I have led JaguarMoon coven. together we teach the Art of Ritual class, a year long course of “witchcraft 101”. Together we celebrate the seasons, work magick, and share the Mysteries in a unique, mentor-based setting.

In late 2009 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the first woman in four generations of my family to be afflicted,  and began the most unpredictable Universal Lesson my life has manifested for me. In early 2010 I went through a 12 week course chemotherapy to lessen the odds of breast cancer returning. My blog charts my progress with cancer and chemotherapy (tagged) and is open to all readers. I passed the crucial five year mark and my journey to health has been astonishing and humbling. That said, I’m still learning at the 10 year mark.

I have decades ahead of me and I intend to keep living it as fully as I can manifest.

    Hope you are doing well. Found your editor name in what is now Curlie. (was ODP/ dmoz). Came to visit your site and say hello. The directory is up and running independently now. A lot of sites in the Pagan categories are gone and not found again. I think this is due to marketing and commercialism. There are far fewer sites which don’t try to sell something rather than exist for public information alone.
