The Sabbatic Dance, at the New Orleans Witches Ball 2015

Here's a short clip of me leading the ancestral ritual at this year's New Orleans Witches Ball. Here we are invoking "the Magister"; a tutelary spirit of the Old Craft and patron of Black Rose Witchcraft. "Magister, the Man in Black, Horned Devil, silver tongued, Man to Stag to [...]

Earth Warriors Festival 2015: Evolve

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the 8th annual Earth Warriors Festival in Clarksville, Ohio.

Redefining ‘Huckabee’

Initiation announcement: Lynx

This is beginning to be a theme! But then again, who *doesn't* love a June wedding? Today, with "Night Shade", Chas, and Heather assisting, I had the honor of initiating Lynx into the inner circle of the Faery, and she is now a fully consecrated witch and priest in the [...]
