There are times when I feel really connected to my spirituality, and then there are those other times when it feels especially far away. It’s nearly impossible to feel spiritual all the time, but when it all seems so very far away there are a few (mostly) easy things you can do to reconnect. [Read more...]

“The Priestess and the Pen” is one of the most interesting and unique “Pagan History” books to be released in the last ten years.

Because of this “no man is an island” and every man’s death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind. Sadly, there are millions of Americans who either choose to ignore the threads that bind us together or seek to sever them. [Read more...]
