The Sacred Other
Magick is living, life is relational, all practice can be deepened, including Witchcraft, and become the beautiful soul-centered piece we desire. The Sacred Other is a dedication to the all the magickal we Other. It is re-centering in the sacred that is off center from the cultural normative standard, and a beautiful strangeness in us all, and so The Sacred Other can be found in all of us, and all things. When we look beyond the expected we find change. When we choose change, we transform.
Let's dialogue, explore magick, practice craft, gather, learn, circle and change.
Let's heal, and mend, and open wounds and find our way through, and transform.
Let's be love, will, and wisdom, and find your center in changing times.
