Moon Skald – Beverley Price

Apr 30th, 2013 | By

Moon and Music It seems fitting that the first article I write for Moon books talks about Moons, but I would like to look at the it from a debated form of poetry, music lyrics. And I would like to start with my personal favourite band, Pulp and their song “Someone Like the Moon”. “She

Just Plain Sitting

Apr 30th, 2013 | By

Sitting in meditation with awareness transcends into every aspect of your life. I know it has done mine.  It’s so hard, and yet so simple – simply to sit for at least 15 mins to half an hour each day, in total awareness. At first it’s really hard not to fidget – trying to get

Recently I have been made aware of how my preconceptions, expectations or existing knowledge of situations, objects or people, can stop me from seeing what is really there. As part of some shamanic work I am doing I was journeying to meet the spirits of the plant and animal that are part of my drum.

Spirits of Place in the Home

Apr 30th, 2013 | By

I often write about the intellectual aspects of my religious practice and spirituality. Partially because these are the things that are easiest to put into words and partially because I think that these are the topics that interest more people. There is another side to things though that makes up the bulk of my day-to-day

Ne’er cast a clout till May be out

Apr 30th, 2013 | By

April has certainly lived up to its reputation as a month of showers, however I don’t remember anyone mentioning howling gales. It brought those one after another, the poor tree’s were shaken and taken aback I think. One moment they were covered in frost and snow the next they were being battered by storm force

Jesus Through Pagan Eyes

Apr 30th, 2013 | By

It was an adventure that brought me to a place I could not have foreseen when I first began it. It’s now almost Spring of 2013 and I first started testing the ground for my book Jesus Through Pagan Eyes in the Spring of 2009. Back then I was working on another book (which has

Figuring out how to kick off a new blog can be hard…like really hard. On the one hand, there’s the question of making some kind of formal introduction vs allowing your readers to get to know you through your posts over time. Introductions made via the internet have always seemed a little…unnatural to me. It’s

Spell Casting/Spell Crafting for Successful Magick

Apr 30th, 2013 | By

“Will you cast a spell for me?”…I can’t tell  you how many times I’ve received this request, and from all sorts of people in all kinds of situations.  I have to tell them all that ‘no’, I don’t cast spells for people; but I always go on to encourage them in personal spell casting, confirming

Magick Is Part of Life

Apr 30th, 2013 | By

Most Pagans would agree that all life is sacred. The animals, the trees, the grass, the clouds, the rocks – everything we see is part of the infinite All That Is. Yes, even the great varied tribe of human beings, and all our inventions (even the destructive ones). Everything that you see around you is,

Introduction

Apr 30th, 2013 | By

At a recent full moon celebration I was a part of, which was open to children with parental consent, one of the participant’s daughters apparently had the epiphany. “Mom, hey, I just noticed we always do ritual on the night of the full moon. Why is that?” It was good she asked the question; as
