    Explaining Crystals to Muggles

      When electricity was first experimented with, imagine how people reacted. “I walked by Tesla’s place again today. Still playing with those wires and metal bits to get his invisible energy to work.” No one understood electricity, or tried to, until finally someone did.

    Book Review Red Tents Unravelling Our Past and Weaving a Shared Future by Maryann Clements and Aisha Hannibal Publisher: Womancraft Publishing 298 Pages Publication Date: March 23, 2021   What is a Red Tent? Red Tents are spaces intentionally co-created for women to share, connect and authentically be. They are spaces for women to share their stories, rest and gain strength from being together and supporting one another.     As someone who has led and priestessed Red Tents, I have always still been stymied and tongue-tied when trying to describe exactly what a Red Tent is.
