Heron Michelle lives in Greenville, North Carolina and is a graduate of East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Science degree. Being the mother of two children and three highly-suspicious cats keeps her pretty busy. Otherwise, she enjoys writing, making art, cooking, crafting, and throwing fabulous parties.

However, her Sacred Mission is as a Witch and Priestess in service to her patrons Aphrodite and Hermes. She is a Reiki Master in Lotus Blossom Usui Reiki Ryoho, and a clairvoyant specializing in past-life retrievals and tarot.

In 2009, Heron opened her witchy shop The Sojourner Whole Earth Provisions. There they engender progressive ideals through a diverse acceptance of all people, transcending race, age, gender, background, sexual preference, culture, and spiritual path.

Beginning in 2010, Heron developed her unique thealogy of Modern Witchcraft into a 48-lesson “Year and a Day” training program teaching a syncretic form of Hermetic Witchcraft as a religion, a magickal art, and a science, and it’s practice as an occupation. Her program prepares witches for self-initiation through a direct connection to Spirit. That thealogy and practice is featured in Heron’s first book in The Pentacle Path series as: Elemental Witchcraft: A Guide to Living a Magickal Life Through the Elements (Llewellyn Publishing 2021)

The Sojourner Tradition of Modern Witchcraft emerged from that training program, and continues to evolve through the dedicated service of it’s initiates who now mentor new seekers and engage in The Great Work of Magick through group celebration. The Sojourner tradition is a synchretism of Hermetic Occult Sciences, Wicca and American Modern Witchcraft; both ceremonial and folk magick, and neo-paganism from around the world.

Heron currently serves as High Priestess of The Sojo Circle Coven, which has been temporarily closed to public instruction since the beginning of the Covid Pandemic. As the pandemic allows, she is available to travel for speaking engagements at pagan festivals and conferences, and to lecture in academic settings.
