“I’ve dreamt in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas: they’ve gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.”
My blog functions as Biography, Dream Journal and Random Musings archive.
Charity, a.k.a. “Sister Charity”
I call myself a “mystical humanist.” I walk the line between the scientific proof, reason, and logic; and the unknown, mysterious, and mystical. I am comfortable with ambiguity because we’re all in it, whether we like it or not. No one has all the answers, and if they claim to, I have found it best to run the other way. My personal motto is “Know Thyself.”
As I have come to believe, the Divine is the archetypal parts of ourselves. It is not some conscious being “out there;” rather it is anexpression of ourselves.
“Magick” as we know and practice it is a metaphor, a microcosm of the Universe. It is the direction of intent and the movement of energy.
I’m an INFJ exploring the vastness of human consciousness. I’m a Victorian at heart and a bookish, librarian wannabe. I love knitting and crafting, pomegranates and honey bees, Neil Gaiman and Joseph Campbell. Formerly a manager of the beloved Magical Journey, I have a broad background in metaphysics, including tarot, astrology, meditation, and chant work.
I believe that all work is holy work if it is approached in the right consciousness. I became an Ordained Minister in 1996, and since that time, I have provided end-of-life and medical care to my vulnerable brothers and sisters in all walks of life, served as a spiritual counselor, worked in retail, and homeschool my daughter. I have worked with people at all points on their paths, and it has all been sacred work.
I am a certified Hypnotherapist and Reiki Master Teacher.
As we are a web, not a ladder or pyramid, I believe in learning and teaching in The Circle and reject hierarchical structures. This is especially true in spiritual matters, and why I don’t profess to have “the answers,” but prefer to help you discover (and be true to) your own. Thus, I teach classes at the GNOSIS Emporium in Nashville on topics such as dream interpretation, tea, dowsing, tarot, and Qabbalah.
