Lydia M N Crabtree. Lydia M N Crabtree has studied and lived Family Coven - the idea that a family unit is the first and
primary coven anyone is part of - for over ten years. Her extensive research will culminate in her first book. "Family Coven: Birthing Hereditary Witchcraft" will be released in Spring of 2014 through Immanion Press. Originally, tapped by Llewellyn Worldwide, "Family Coven: Birthing Hereditary Witchcraft" was shelved when Lydia took very ill. Now back from a medical sabbatical, Immanion Press has welcomed her into their portfolio and she looks forward to "Family Coven: Birthing Hereditary Witchcraft to finally see print. With Immanion she is planning a workbook and other offerings on Family Coven. Unlike any other book before, Family Coven calls the reader to establish a practice that is no longer solitary in nature and yet not necessarily ordained by some outside coven or group. It is a radical offering that should give practitioners another structured venue for worship: solitary? coven? or Family Coven? Through her personal blog (Confessions of Being...). She writes on social justice, incest survival, physical and mental trauma as it relates to spiritual development. Her views on disability will be published through Immanion Press in 2013 in the book "Rooted in the Body, Seeking the Soul: Magic Practitioners Living with Disabilities, Addition and Illness" an anthology complied and edited by Tara "Masery" Miller.
