Holding the Center: Privilege, Pain, and Pantheacon

So many have been made aware in the past few days of the actions and controversies present at Pantheacon this year centering around gender exclusion and derogatory speech. For those who are not, I point [...]

Many threads within the Cord

Owning a magical and spiritual supply store has been my dream since I was a little boy. I remember always being fascinated with magic and the occult, and told my mother when I was 2 [...]

New Art!

I am pleased to have returned to working on my art. (Running a store certainly does take one's free-time away...) For the next five weeks I will be unveiling a new piece in the series, [...]

Interviewed by Witches of Salem…

For those who are interested, this past Wednesday night I gave an interview about Feri tradition, secrecy in the Craft, and the use and politics of the word 'warlock' to the hilarious Christian Day for [...]

Rapture of the Star Goddess Ritual: Song, “I Am”

Some asked for the lyrics to the song I wrote for the Rapture of the Star Goddess ritual, performed at Pantheacon this past Sunday, and so I present them below. It was an exhilarating (and terrifying!) [...]

My Response

My apologies to those who are overloaded with Feri drama. If this is you, please feel free to skip this link. I find myself needing to post a rebuttal to some serious allegations that were [...]

Witch Eye returns…

I posted this elsewhere, but then realized I hadn't done it here, so... We are happy to announce that Witch Eye has returned as an annual publication! We have expanded from 48 to 84 pages, [...]

Take four!

Well… if you haven’t read the accusations against me then you wont be able to here. The rebuttal post that I just posted was suspended for violation of copyrights in that I reposted the public posts that the user Elorie posted in accusing me of various absurdities. So… you will all just have to read my response without the benefit of reading her ranting posts unless you want to go to her journal directly and read them yourself. They are still public at the time of this writing. So here is my rebuttal, stripped of quotes and obvious snark (while funny and good-feeling in the moment had lost it’s charm and I just want to be done with it). Let’s see how long this post can stay up. […]

Feri is…

A couple of new websites have sprung up espousing the face of non-public Feri. While I do not agree with everything that they have said, I support the right of everyone to speak from their [...]

The F(a)eri(e) Tradition Nonunion Tour (Now in it’s 40th year!)

I am again hearing about a split in the Feri tradition. "Public" vs. "Mystery Tradition" Feri. Since I am one of those at the forefront of Feri in the public eye I can just imagine [...]

A poem

Opening the Way Sun that shines within my chest illuminates the moon below that calls with lust unto the heavens To seduce the stars and so in rapturous love they fall. Holy star above my [...]

A Witch by any other name…

My article, Crafting the Warlock, is live on the Witches Voice. Check it out and tell a friend! (No, really... I want it to have lots of "hits".)  😉

The F(a)eri(e) “Community” (and why I am against it)

It happens every so often; an issue rises to the attention of some Feri initiates that ruffles their feathers and soon people are grabbing torches and pitchforks. It's a pattern. It's predictable. You can practically [...]

Hoodoo and the Roots of Feri Tradition

I am often telling my students that if they are really interested in the Feri tradition, then they need to expand their magical studies to include hoodoo. When I first came to Feri it was [...]

Post-Pantheacon thoughts (2010)

I sit here this morning in my store, sipping coffee and taking a moment to reflect on all that happened during the convention this year. I was so happy to be able to see so [...]

The Three of Swords, ©2010

Three swords pierce a crimson heart, which bleeds into a river of sorrow. Clouds gather as the sun sets; ending all hope for a bright outcome. The Three of Swords is a [...]

The Fairytale of Equality

From our day at the beach. A couple days later I opened up my laptop and this picture with the caption was set as the desktop.
