This was one of those “business” books that I got from the good folks at McGraw Hill (I don't recall at this point if I asked for them to send me a review copy or if they queried me to see if I'd be interested in having a go at it), but it's obviously "in my wheelhouse". However, I again find…Continue

Here's another book from the LibraryThing.com “Early Reviewer” program. I was pretty sure that when I put in my requests for the February batch, that I'd end up getting this, having read extensively in both things Occult and things Third Reich. I figured that Arthur J. Magida's…Continue

I believe that I reached out to the good folks at McGraw Hill to get a copy of this one … I'd recently reviewed a similar book on the Pinterest platform and figured, hey … the more the merrier. One of the challenges in putting out books about very new web entities is the speed at which they…Continue

This posting is to clearly reaffirm the close partnership between the Correllian Tradition and Witch School.
Recently, the Elders have seen some disparaging and inflammatory remarks about this situation from a Tradition member who has little knowledge of Witch School’s health.
These remarks are not a reflection of our Tradition and Witch School’s commitment to each other.
We want to make it crystal clear that the Correllian Tradition and Witch School have always and…Continue

This is another book that came my way via the “Early Reviewer” program at LibraryThing.com … in this case from the December 2012 “batch”. As I've noted previously, this lends a certain serendipity to my reading, as I get books from there pretty close to monthly and they typically are…Continue

Often it is our family that can be the hardest on us when it comes to our religious choices. I feel it is not the lack of acceptance, but the abundance of un-acceptance that is the toughest to deal with. We must remember why we chose the path we did, and why it chose us. Find strength in the Mother Goddess and the Father God and knowing you have a greater purpose, and remember to forgive and accept those who do not understand.

We are in the process of moving over the last of the domain names to the new server. This might cause emails sent to us over the next day to bounce back.
There is nothing that can be done about this. We ask that if you need help message me on here or leave a comment below. Ill keep you update on the status of the DNS transfers.
We had a report last nite that the sites hung up. Appears Microsoft has a new feature that turns off IIS if it finds any errors. We set that back to the…Continue

Okay so I have been running a group now for over a year. I am having so much trouble with it. I don't know how to find people in my area whom are serious and grown up enough to be in an occult group like the one I am attempting to run. We are supposed to meet every week and do a lesson and then test on the previous weeks lesson. We do this to increase our knowledge skill and understanding of occult matters. I am trying to form a strong group that a coven could possibly form out of but it…Continue

In an earlier blog I wrote about the generic shamanic view of the cosmos, the lower world, the middle world, and the upper world. If you didn't read that blog don't worry, the upper and lower worlds are not heaven and hell. They are places to which we travel on shamanic journeys to meet with totem animals, guides and teachers. Eventually we will get to world views in this blog, but a few preliminaries first.
Remember that we live in the kawsay pacha, the energy world and part of…Continue

Well things have certainly changed since I was last on here. My path has taken many twists and turns this past year. From living with my parents, to having our own 1 bedroom apartment. From being unemployed, to being employed almost full time. From stepping away from Witchschool for a while, to not being able to to openly be a pagan, to joining a coven, and now I am slowly finding my way back.
I wish I could say its been an easy journey, but that would be a lie.Its been a hard journey…

His Holiness the Dalai Lama refers to compassion as the supreme emotion. In Tibetan the ability to show compassion or to empathize with another is shen dug ngal wa la mi sö pa, or “the inability to bear the sight of another’s suffering”. How many of us have developed that inability, or on the other hand have taken Dionne Warwick’s advice from her 1964 hit song, Walk on By , and just do as the song says and walk on by.
You know the stories as well as I do, they don’t make the…Continue

The Law of Conservation of Energy states that energy can never be created or destroyed only changed from one form to another.
All matter and energy are regarded as equivalent. Therefore all matter cannot be destroyed only transitioned to another form.
All energy is in constant motion, therefore constantly changing. Change is the law of nature. This law of change was wonderfully described by William W. Atkinson in 1911 in the “The Mastery of Being” .He wrote:

Wow … it's been months since I've been able to block the time out to get over to the coffee shop (for some reason, I can't write at home) to knock out some reviews! Frankly, I'm “late” with this one … I won this in the LibraryThing.com “Early Reviewers” program, from the September 2012…Continue

So my very good friend and ex gf wanted me to do a tarot reading for her. I warned her I have never done one before but have always felt a calling from the cards when others have done readings in my presence and almost an interpretation to what the reading they are giving means to what is they are asking or what is going on in their life. So she also knows I will not use or touch my husbands deck. I believe it is his not mine also I don't know why but those cards are not the ones that I want…Continue

I have spent over five years in Peru and Alto Peru (aka Bolivia) and Andean shamanism is probably the closest to what I practice as a shamanic practitioner. I am an American of Irish descent so Celtic blood flows through my veins. However astro-astrology locates all of my planets over South America with Venus (my heart) over the Andean regions of Bolivia and Peru and I feel most alive and most at home on the Altiplano.
In a previous post I wrote a little about Animism, the belief that…Continue
