Pip and the Moments in Time.

Meet Pip. So this all started a long time ago, in a land far, far away. A lot of my stories end up this way, bear with me. I might have already talked about this, you should all know that I have a chronically terrible memory. Long term only, my short term is just fine….

Imbolc, Freyr and the Sun Under the World.

It all started at Samhain… Ordinarily, my Samhain experience is a sombre, thoughtful, occasionally sad time when I think back on people who left my life. But it’s also something that I have attended from a distance. This year was different. Meet Freyr. Someone I had never thought of, and now that you ask me,…

The Difference Between Paganism and Spiritualism.

It came to my attention recently that there is a sort of divide that I have been ignoring… maybe not ignoring, maybe just been unaware. When I step into the local crystal shop, or visit somewhere like the Crystal Castles near Byron Bay, where I went recently, I have a habit of sort of assuming…

4 Ways Shapeshifting Can Break the Gender Binary.

I’m always interested to read different perspectives on gender, and particularly on the topic of non-binary people within Paganism as a whole. I recently read this post asking questions about the topic. This is a huge concept, with lots of different opinions and lots of different ways of approaching it, but to me it slots perfectly into…

Coming Home

So it’s been a dozen years of living in the land that as a child I had prescribed some mystical… and there are certainly plenty of things about living in the UK that I will miss. The forests, the castles, the history… It was a place that I sought out throughout my childhood, even before…
