    Labyrinth Lore I’ve built quite few labyrinths and used to walk one every day, for years. This is the season for labyrinths and mazes, so I’ll share my thoughts on the two major types that have been found in history. First is the Minoan, 7-circuit one. This was built as a place for initiates to meet their darkest fears, and it is said there was a Minotaur in the center. But I am guessing it was shaman in disguise, helping move his tribe through their initiations, instead. These ancient mazes were not easy places, though, for many who entered did not come out alive. The seven-circuit labyrinth was used in…

    Celebrating the Old Ways in New Times Second Edition

    Celebrating the Old Ways in New Times for December 2020 Bright Blessings! We have had an unusually warm November this year, and I have taken full advantage of it to sit and visit outdoors as much as possible with people who I know I am not going to see again until March or April. Covid-19 has hit us hard this month. I am in Franklin County, Ohio, and our county hit purple warning level of public emergency in regards to the levels of Covid19. For the first time, shops and even our Metro Parks are enforcing mask use, and we are back on a curfew again. Next, they may shut…

    My Ogham Journey to the Beach

    This journeying experience was from a lesson in Lora O’Brien’s Ogham Journeys class at the Irish Pagan School. I can’t recommend their courses highly enough, and have found some genuine authentic connections to various important aspects of my Irish Celtic spirituality through both their free and paid courses.   The space behind my eyelids was red, not black. I expected a darkness, black and soft like velvet, but instead I was in a swirling maelstrom of blood-red chaos. This space had been easy to access but I bounced around alarmingly rather than floating easily; my movements were frenetic and uncontrollable as I first tried to get to grips with this…

    Book Review The Magic of Pathworking A Meditation Guide for Your Inner Vision by Simon Court Llewellyn 288 Pages     When I saw that this title was available for review, I admit to being rather excited. Pathworkings are my favorite tools of use for teaching, reflection and personal growth.

So, add to this already impassioned perspective and author’s work background and training is derived from some of the best esotericists, magicians and teachers of Hermetic knowledge and you have all of the ingredients…

    Book Review – The Wonder of Unicorns: Ascending with the Higher Angelic Realms by Diana Cooper

    Book Review The Wonder of Unicorns Ascending with the Higher Angelic Realms by Diana Cooper 240 Pages     The first two pictures in this book have an eagle and a unicorn in them. To me, this was a universal signal that I was meant to review this book. Because these two symbols, the eagle and the unicorn represent the business that me and my husband run. Ms. Cooper works a lot of with Angels and Mother Mary or the Christ Consciousness. I do not work with any of those energies, I do appreciate that there are those out there that do. If you are a person who works with…
