Our lives in this century are so busy. We have work. We have children. We have parents or people to take care of. We plan elaborate (or simple) rituals and spells, but then life happens and our plans get thrown to the wayside. We have to learn to adapt and change when those wrenches get … Read more
It’s not often that a work of fiction inspires me in my personal practice, but I have been meaning to write about this book series for a long time. The Rituals of Rock Bay is a book series written by author and Druid M.A. Phillips, otherwise known as Ditzy Druid across social media. I have interviewed her … Read more
