Priestessing


Art of Ritual is Accepting Applications

Hi all:   I know that many people I know are interested in learning more about magic and how to wield it. For those of you interested in a different magickal system, I offer a year long course in Witchcraft, The Art of Ritual.

Current and Future Goals and Dreams (2018-19)

Each year I like to look back over the previous year, and then set goals for the coming year. Many people do this on Jan 1st; I prefer to do it on my birthday. I often refine the accomplishments and goals until my new year, Samhain, but the bulk of the work is done on or around my birthday. These …Continue reading →

Reviewing the Year (2017-18)

Each year I like to look back over the previous year, and then set goals for the coming year. Many people do this on Jan 1st; I prefer to do it on my birthday. I often refine the accomplishments and goals until my new year, Samhain, but the bulk of the work is done on or around my birthday.

Statement of Inclusion

We need standards we can point to, that our students can look at, and we all need to hold one another accountable.I think that all students will be good with …Continue reading →

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 teaching some of the live …Continue reading →

Coming Out

(I’ve never shared this story publicly.)

Mabon Musings

I’m spending Mabon literally in the middle of an orchard. I’m in Italy and all around me they are harvesting apples and pears (the peaches were last week, melons the week before). The house we are staying in is 100s of years old and has been in the same family all of that time. There is a pomegranate tree in …Continue reading →

What Do You Value?: Oath-bound and Trickery

Last night I had the pleasure of acting as a priestess-counselor for another priestess. (For the sake of narrative, I will call her M.) She was concerned that her speaking would involve the revelation of oath-bound information and that had prevented her from reaching out for quite some time. M, however, felt that there were current events occurring based on …Continue reading →

Being Hungry

(I almost can’t write this, I still feel intense shame.) There were two times in my my life when I was poor enough to feel actual physical hunger. The first was when my parents first separated and I was living with my mother in a commune in Berkeley (CA).* I’d been wrested from a typical middle-class (white) suburban lifestyle full …Continue reading →
