Facilitating Authenticity

There is no reality except the one contained within us. That is why so many people live such an unreal life. They take the images outside of them for reality and never allow the world within to assert itself. ~Hermann Hesse For more years than […]

Samhain 2018

This past weekend I got to attend and participate in Circle Sanctuary’s 2018 Samhain festival. It was cold and muddy with an intermittent drizzle, but at least it wasn’t snowing! Many people tent camped, including us, but our friend has a large canvas tent with […]

Samhain Sweeping: Cleaning up for the New Year
