Rev. Bruce Richards, Priest and Mentor of the Correllian Tradition
I remember as a small boy working folk magic with my Grandmother in the garden or in her kitchen. She seemed to have a ritual for everything! Life was indeed full of magic and wonder.
She was my first mentor, my inspiration through hard times. After her passing I wandered for a while, looking for the missing element of life.
It was not until 1971 that I started study of the Wiccan way, from Celtic ritual Magic to Huna spiritualism combined with two years of graduate studies in Psychology (applied states of mental consciousness) at the University of New Mexico. I also had some association and opportunity to work with various South Western Native American Peoples with some degree of acceptance.
In 2003 I found the Correllian Nativist Tradition and started studies of Correllian Wicca. I finally had found what I had been looking for, an organized, structured form of study that made perfect sense! I have dedicated myself to Mentoring, Teaching, and Clerical Service. It is by helping others that we most learn about ourselves.
I am now a Priest and Mentor of the Correllian Tradition.

If a relationship has to be secret, you shouldn't be in it.
Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
Don't compare your life to others. You don't really know what their journey is all about.
Life is too short for long pity parties. Get busy living....or get… Continue

I wanted to plant some white sage this spring and figured it was about time to start seeds inside. The problem is where to find them. My search lead me to a wonderful "Seed Man". In fact i was so impressed that I thought i would share this with you all.
