Two Torches

One of the things I’ve found most fascinating in preparing for this week’s event is the sheer number of epithets that are associated with Hecate. Earthly One, Key-Bearer, Savior, Three Bodied, Of The Three Ways, Companion, Before The Gate…and that just barely scratches the surface! You get the idea – lots of titles, lots of […]

“Spring” cleaning

I‘ve been working through a very slow bit of spring cleaning recently (yes, I’m aware that it’s now August). This has never come easily to me – it’s not so much that I want to keep a bunch of things, exactly, but the process of deciding which things to keep is frustratingly difficult. After getting […]

Using the tools

A couple weeks ago, I had the opportunity to help facilitate the 9th (seriously, the 9th? I’m not really sure how that happened) Expanding Inward event.

That said, […]

It’s not a complicated thing (well, it’s not complicated for me, since I neither host nor organize the event) – it’s simply an opportunity to get together with friends […]

The journey to the Underworld (still) must be made alone

The journey to the Underworld must be made alone. In the last blog entry, River explored this truth of the Underworld in a really beautiful way. As I consider the truths that form the foundation of this place that we will visit, I find myself drawn to the same one, though with a different bent. […]

Gratitude and intention

                A friend of mine recently celebrated his birthday, and had a small group of folks over on the 1st for a combination birthday/Beltane gathering. He offered this really lovely ritual idea, where each of us brought some fruit and we prepared a fruit salad together. We took […]
