Announcing: Aradia and the Books of the Sacred Marriage

It’s done. After 45 years of working on the materials that went into it, it’s done, published, and let go. Off my conscience. I put out a shorter version of it about 4 years ago; that was Goddess Murder. Recently I put a companion volume, using the rest of the materials, up on Amazon, titled [Read More...]

From the Diary of St. Allogenes

Before anything came into being, the Mother alone existed, before the worlds in the heavens appeared, or the world that is the earth, or principality, or authority, or the powers. She brought forth everything, like a little child, like a drop from a spring, like a blossom from a vine, like a flower, like a plant in need of nourishment and growth and faultlessness.

The Queen Who Is Hidden in the Gospels, Part IV

In Part III of this series, I pointed out that Mk (The Gospel According to Mark) is not a simple reporting of unadorned facts, but is instead a carefully constructed literary masterpiece.

On the Nature of the Gods

A Dialogue of Angels

What existed before the beginning? “Before” and “beginning” are irrelevant. Time is not primordial, nor is space or matter or energy. [Read more...]

“History” — Part III

Canon    15. Innocence: The Sorceress  Blake told you and told you: you never heard. There’s only the single speechless word. It verberates your wordy skies, It multiplies your bawdy ground.

“History” — Part I

In December 1963 I had a spontaneous series of altered states that lasted for about three weeks. In the center of it was an ecstatic conversion experience much like what had happened to me at age 14. Most people have no idea that such an experience is even possible. Those who do know about it [Read More...]

Imagine Jesus Holding Hands with the Goddess

One cannot talk about both Christianity and the Craft in the same breath IF if one defines them in such a way that they share no common ground at all. [Read more...]
