have been a practicing warlock for nearly 30 years. As a child, being raised on the Irish tales of the little
people, I believed in faeries. I knew that beyond what our eyes told
us there was something more... sometimes wonderful, sometimes terrifying,
always powerful. My quest for knowledge most certainly began back
then, as a small boy watching the skies, looking at the stars and
wondering if the forces that drove the wheel of the universe were
In my early teens I found
my first real taste of Witchcraft in the form of books found at my
local library, and at 14 I formally dedicated myself to the Craft in a ritual of my own design. I was drawn to the Craft's wondrous ambiguity that
seemed to be hinting at something that was impossible to describe
with words, something that human understanding could not begin to
articulate, just beyond the periphery of normal consciousness. It
was also at this time that I began to read the Tarot and I began to
achieve a sense of my own true power. The journey had begun...
Finding Witchcraft to
be a system that is very flexible (a great source of its power, I
believe) I began to experiment with different techniques to achieve
deeper states of awareness. Almost immediately I became aware that
human beings could channel forces beyond those of the everyday. I
then was able to remember times when, as a child, I would spontaneously
project my consciousness to other places, or would suddenly find myself
able to peer into realms just beyond our own, and sometimes speak
to the inhabitants there. These experiences, which have continued
seemingly randomly well into adulthood, have shaped who I am and how
I look at the Pattern: the Living Web that is the Universe.
Over 20 years ago I began training
in the F(a)eri(e) Tradition of witchcraft, a tradition that is mainly taught
most other forms of the Craft, Feri does not seek to define experience
in terms of a heterosexual psychological model. It is a path of
ecstasy, in all it's forms, as well as a balanced one; light and
dark are equally embraced which fosters a fierce sense of personal
responsibility that is the beginning of the warrior ethic so important
to our tradition. Through my work in Feri I have seen sights both
joyous and horrific, leading me always to a deeper understanding
of my Self and my relation to the Universe. For this reason the
Feri tradition holds a power unlike anything else I have known.
It is a path that beats in my heart.
After years of intense training I am honored to call myself a F(a)eri(e) initiate, witch, mystic, warlock, and priest. I hold the Black Wand of a Master Sorcerer, an honor that was ritually conferred upon me by several initiates from different lines of the tradition, most notably Feri Grandmaster Cora Anderson. I am also the founder of my own line of Feri, BlueRose. I teach classes and workshops across the US, am the editor of Witch Eye: A Journal of Feri Uprising, and I offer Feri training, both in the Bay Area as well as long distance.
I live with my husband, Chas, and our boyfriend Devin in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. There are others to whom I have opened my heart and who have, in turn, mirrored that love back to me. Some have moved on, and others remain close by. I am truly blessed to have known and loved each of them and am thankful for the gifts that I have received because of it. The BlueGod has smiled upon me. I thank Him everyday for the precious gift of love in my life.
I live with a cat, three dogs, and a few plants. In addition to my personal spiritual pursuits I also own and manage a spiritual supply store in Walnut Creek, CA, The Mystic Dream. I listen to music. I write. I meditate. I make art. I read. I dream. I laugh a lot.
