Imbolc – Rejuventation!

Imbolc – Rejuventation!

The chilling cold air and frost-laden ground of early spring herald the revival of life and with it, our own lives are becoming richer, fuller…

Witchfest…

Witchfest…

Witchfest – 26th November 2016, Brighton. Leaving work at noon and having to quickly dye my hair before setting off for Brighton at two left me feeling rather rushed but thankfully my driver, the ever-obliging Mr H, was happy to take charge of the journey so I could relax for the next couple of hours. I also spent some time fretting, if I’m honest. I’ve been doing talks, large-scale rituals and workshops on witchy subjects for around twenty years across…

In days to come there will be foraging trips for making wines, cordials, jams and chutneys while my friend’s front garden is full of chammomile flowers and her greenhouse plants are thriving from the sunshine…

With this increase in the numbers of people organising and attending events, there are usually at least a few who are very new to it all and taking their first steps on…
