      Reservation Dogs     A wonderful new indigenous comedy is making waves on Hulu. Starring such veteran actors as Zahn McClarnon and Gary Farmer, this refreshing show is about a group of Native American teens and their days and nights at home on their reservation in Oklahoma. Bored, tired of the bad things that go on there, and to some extent, ready to get the hell away for good, the kids stick together, making the best of the worst, and making the viewers die laughing, begging for more. Here is a trailer for the show:     The magic of this film comes from the fact that it’s an…

    Peeking in the Shadows: Crafting a Book of Shadows and Light

      This month begins a series of exploration about Our Relationship to the Divine…. Our Relationship to the Divine Part One: In Search of the Divine   …. The Divine flows within me.

      Review of My 600 Pound Life Bright Blessings! The show I am reviewing addresses sensitive topics: body image, health, and the identity all of this creates. Magically, it addresses transformation, and the fact magic is a process that takes time. It’s not flinging one spell, uttering a few words, or “putting the energy out to the Universe” and then going off and forgetting about it. My 600 Pound Life streams on Hulu, and my husband and I have watched several episodes. Multiple individuals open up to share their struggles, and successes with the public. Some allow people to see them nude. They allow camera crews into their everyday personal…

    A Druid’s Garden, Edible Forestry, Year Two A year ago, I wrote an article on putting in an edible forest garden when I was so excited to finally have enough outdoor space to plant one after waiting lots of years for it. And someone requested a follow-up on that first article, so here it is. Just to recap the basics: an edible forest garden is made up of three layers, trees, shrubs, and ground covers, all perennial and all edible in some way. Most of the examples of EFGs I’ve seen look a lot like a jungle, masses of plants scrambling all over each other. But I’m a druid and…

    Spiritual Gaslighting: Structures that Prevent It (Part 2)

    (art by Kathleen Dalrymple)     In…2020, we may feel as if the world comes to a halt. This huge global crossroad polarizes the forces of humanitarian consciousness and goodwill, for one, versus ancient and outdated forces of control, manipulation, and abuse of power, on the other hand. The fight can be fierce! One of the most noticeable changes we may observe is that in the coming few years, we’ll see more and more individuals taking full responsibility for their role within the society, living in harmony with one another and with the environment. This is how globally humankind will graduate from the state of teenager/young adult to a fully…

      Review of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Bright Blessings, film lovers! This time I am reviewing a series Netflix has done three seasons of, and I have been told, are at least doing a fourth- The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. It’s supernatural fiction about Sabrina, a half human who has to come to terms with her powers, and decide how, or IF she will use them. She gets a lot of pressure from family and mentors, all of whom seek to mold her THEIR way. Sabrina is not having it. Surprisingly mature and responsible for a teenager, she, along with family and friends, navigates the treacherous, and blissful world…

    Book Review – Taurus: A Hearse of a Different Color by Aephera Giron

    Book Review Taurus A Hearse of a Different Color by Sèphera Giron 296 Pages     This book review is for Taurus A Hearse of a Different Color by Sèphera Giron.  It is from the Witch upon A Star series. There are 5 books to this series and this is book 5. Don’t worry you don’t have to read them in order. Each series is written about a coven member so it really doesn’t have to be read in order. I’ll list the serious below with her other books, too. This is a very well written witchy romance about a witch named Dorothy. It takes place in a magickal fictional…
