Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because it speaks to the best of what we can be. It’s certainly about food and family, but it’s also about coming together despite our differences.

This was the first public ritual (outside of festival) that I wrote and presented for public consumption out here in Northern California.

Yule has long been one of my favorite Pagan high holy days. There’s a festive spirit in the air, and though most people don’t know it, most of them are celebrating right along with us (even if it’s a few days later). On the Winter Solstice we celebrate the return of the Sun and we do so with joy and love and devotion to our gods. [Read more...]

I’ve been running a small circle in my living room since March of this year.
