I am grateful for the tremendous amount of support I have received in the wake of the release of my new book, Betwixt and Between: Exploring the Faery Tradition of Witchcraft. It has been such a tremendous honor to be able to present what I think is valuable and beautiful [...]

Open Letter to Uline: A Parting of the Ways

I just wrote this email to Uline, a popular shipping and office supply company which has provided 100% of our bags, boxes, paper, and other retail and shipping supplies since we began our business in 2004. I couldn't find an email address for their corporate office, so I sent it [...]

Book Update: It’s Between the Worlds…

The official release date is this coming Sunday: Jan. 8. But that hasn't stopped people from getting their hands on it, anyway. About a week before it was "supposed" to release, I started getting reports from people on or near the east coast who had just randomly picked it up [...]

The Curse of Witchcraft

"One hand to heal, one hand to hex. One heart, one mind to know what's best."    I've been thinking a lot about Aradia, lately. She has always been a potent figure of the personal empowerment of the witch, in my eyes, and features in the mythos of the Black Rose Witchcraft school; [...]

Refusing to Normalize Hate

I. Just. Can't. Even. This is nothing less than a NATIONAL EMERGENCY. With the help of a foreign power, we elected an *actual fascist*. He has *proven* that he will not help all Americans by his appointments alone. White nationalism cannot be allowed to take control of our country. This [...]

Election Magic 2016 Pt. 2: The Real Work

So what now? For many of us it feels as if the very values of truth and decency have been trampled and we find ourselves bruised and bloodied, fearful for what the future may hold for us. But this is not the end of the world. It is a call [...]

A Post-Election Vision for America

  The vision I have for America is larger than this election. It's larger than just the rhetoric and the venom, and politics, and the lies. I envision an America in which all her people are equal and free. In which we care for our sick and our poor, rather [...]

Election Magic 2016: Truth, Democracy, and Wonder Woman

Today marks Election Day in the US where we have the civic duty of choosing who will steer our country for the next four years. There has been so much in the way of orchestrated lies (a common occurrence in American politics, to be certain) that I wanted my spellwork [...]

Book Update: Betwixt & Between

My author proof came today! (Well... the digital PDF version, anyway; the paper version is en route.) I'm so excited to be watching these little milestones as the book moves through the stages of manifestation. This book has been a labor of love. I have taken the material that I was [...]

Dedication announcement: David Salisbury

I am very pleased to announce that yesterday, in the presence of the Old Ones, I passed the Taibhsearachd to my student, David Salisbury. He is now a formal Dedicant of the BlueRose lineage of the Faery tradition, as well as my apprentice. Congratulations, David! I know we can all expect good [...]

Becoming a Warlock: Silence, Oaths, and My Life in the F(a)eri(e) Tradition

Though I have always loved the term, I did not always use the word "warlock" to describe myself. While an outdated etymon persists in dominating the conversation about the viability of that terms’ use in modern parlance, it was not until I came to the Faery/Faerie/Feri tradition that I realized [...]
