Understanding what Racism looks like and its Impact on POC

Understanding what Racism looks like and its Impact on POC

Feb 21, 2015

After the recent issues that came out at this year’s PantheaCon convention, I have seen thread after thread asking the same questions of POC.

My Fourth Initiation: Spiraling Up From Pain to Priestess

My Fourth Initiation: Spiraling Up From Pain to Priestess

Jan 28, 2015

I was initiated into my third degree in 2008. I don’t know if I was more happy to get the initiation or to be able to finally stop going through the trials that a degree systems brings to your front door; or so I thought. Either way, it was a turning point in my life, it was the result of a lot of hard work and one of the first times I chose to study something...

And while I am a supporter of equity in all areas,...

Community Struggle and The Road to Somewhere

Community Struggle and The Road to Somewhere

Mar 30, 2014

After last week’s revelation within the Pagan community, I came home on Thursday with a heavy heart, a headache and a feeling of overwhelm at what I was seeing happen to the community that I love so much. You see, I don’t think it is about the latest issue, it is about us as a community learning to deal with triggering events without tearing everything...
