This year my coven has decided to quietly embark on a couple of intermediate lessons for ourselves. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to do more than just teach the class, and it feels really good to get into new things.¬†Daystar is making salves for the wheel of the year; Cynnamon is […]

Jolabokaflod
