February 19-22, 2015, DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 5801 Southfield Expressway, Detroit, MI 48228
I will be Guest of Honor at this “gathering of esoteric spiritual paths”, one of the largest such events in the Midwest. I’ll be talking about trance work and we will have an oracular session as well. I am looking forward to seeing Detroit– I was born there, but we moved when I was three– meeting pagans from this area, and winter weather, since we don’t seem to be getting much in California.
Sacred Space and Between the Worlds

This year, two great conventions have joined forces to bring together pagans from the Middle Atlantic region. I have been to both of them before, and am looking forward to seeing old friends. Events will include the Conjure Dance, and I’ll be talking about how to prepare and participate in possessory trancework.

Brushwood Folklore Center, Sherman, NY
The Sirius Rising Festival takes place at the beautiful Brushwood Folklore Center near Lake Erie in New York. Lorrie Wood and I will be doing a seidh session, the Nerthus procession, and an intensive week-long workshop on possessory work and getting closer to the gods.
Parliament of World’s Religions
October 15-19, Salt Lake City, UT
I am happy to announce that both of my proposals for program items at the Parliament have been accepted–an honor, since more than a thousand were submitted. I will be moderating a panel, “Rebuilding the altars: reconstructing indigenous pagan religions today”, with Kirk Thomas, Elisheva Nesher, Rob Schreiwer and Erynn Laurie, and giving a solo talk, “Staving off Ragnarok, a heathen response to Climate Change”. This is the world’s biggest interfaith gathering, and a great opportunity to win some recognition for culture-focused pagan traditions. The last time it was in the U.S. was in 1993. I will post the information when I know on which days my presentations are going to be.
