Do you ever think about why we do what we do? I do, all the time. For example, this morning while putting my altar away I asked myself, “Self, why do you do ritual? Does Deity “need” my rituals?” I sort of doubt it. If Deity is so powerful that She/He could create the world and all that is in it then Deity doesn’t “need” my rituals. So why do ritual?
Deity doesn’t “need” our rituals, we do. We need the rituals. We need our religious practices because they help us remember our place in…Continue
I walked Green Lake in Seattle today, and saw my first baby ducks. I was very happy and loudly said "Baby Ducks!" which clearly shows that my Soul retrieval took since one of the parts to return was my enthusiastic inner child. My next comment was, "We need more ducks." Wasn't sure where that came from, I just loved those little ducks.
As a totem or power animal, Duck represents living in the moment, a focus on relationship and family, and a mystical quality of moving between the…Continue

This will be a short blog post today because I have to get ready to teach my summer school class, non-profit financial management, that starts tomorrow. It is a marathon course. We do an entire semester's work in five long, eight-hour days (Fri-Sat-Fri-Sat-Fri) but it is also a lot of fun. Anyway, why did you get up this morning?
I hope you realize that life isn't designed to be fun and games and its not a life-time pass to an amusement park. Life is designed, and we designed it this…Continue

I was working on one of the questions in Third Degree comprehensive final exam this morning and this got me thinking about the need to practice what we know.
Have you ever seen someone's book collection with shelf after shelf of books that have never been read? The collection might be impressive but it is also useless.
Magical knowledge is not given to us nor do we collect it so that it can gather dust on a shelf in our minds. The key to being a real Wiccan, a witch or a wizard…Continue

Graduation at the university where I'm a professor just ended and I'm sitting three floors above the dell looking down at the graduation crowd and reflecting on the last year.
Early in their senior year many of my students realize that their lives are going to change. They are 22 years old and have been in school since they were 5 and all of the sudden classes, school activities and friends aren't going to be the center of their world. They want to know what's next and what do…Continue

Probably the most common question that I am asked when I teach shamanic journey workshops (I like to call them "playshops") is "What if I am making the whole thing up?" That's a very good question. It is quite common to feel like you are creating your journey with your imagination, because you are. Well sort of.
I expect that when we journey part of our soul travels to the other world and part remains in our body. In essence, our soul bilocates. The part of our soul that has left…Continue

It took me a bit longer than a year and a day - but not by much! I have finished up the First Degree course and also taken several others. Of the required courses for First Degree initiation, I have only the Correllian Ministry class still to take. I feel like I have learned and grown so much in the past year and I am excited to see what the future holds asI continue my studies in this tradition and others.
