Expanding Kabbalah

I’ve been teaching Kabbalah for almost 10 years, I think. It’s a universal system that transcends belief structures, but most of the information out there is based on Abrahamic tradition. I’ve got some Gnostic in me, so that part isn’t completely dissonant, and I still strive to find a way to present the information in…

Separating Fact From Fiction

The most useful thing that meditation gives us is the ability to separate fact from fiction. When we don’t have a regular (read: daily) practice of some sort of mindfulness, we take the stories our mind tells us as fact. I wrote about this extensively at the end of October. There is phrase some people…

Cycles of the Goddess

In 2020, instead of doing a Full Moon Women’s Circle, I will be offering an online subscription program of Goddess-centric devotional material. All live sessions will be available via video conference and phone.

Yes yes, that’s only 12 years off, but still. So, this event is Mercury (conscious thought, communication) stepping between us and…

Let me tell you about the Negative Ego

What some people call brain is more accurately “mind”. In Buddhist terms, it is the monkey mind. In Western Mystery Tradition it frequently gets labeled as the Negative Ego. In Twelve Step programs, they just call it ego, but that term is confusing, because Freud. The Negative Ego is that part of the Self that, when sabre…

Queen of Pentacles from The Starman Tarot by Davide and Esther De Angelis “We are all part of Mother Earth: an indivisible, living community of interconnected systems.

Why is the Internet important for change?

There is no time, no space, and you are not defined by race, heritage, gender, orientation, religion, or socioeconomic status unless you choose to be. This is not to say that you shouldn’t choose to be, only that you have…
