You’ve heard Joy and me mention this book numerous times. Its latest cover is green, and it’s available at most good booksellers, online and off. The sheer volume of information it contains, relevant to pagans and preppers alike, makes it a worthwhile book for any shelf.
Just a selection of items that we will be doing shows on in the future, but not sure when.
- Rituals and covens in virtual space (with Ma’at)
- Pagan Parenting
- Pantheons of deities (as in commonalities and “jobs”)
- Everyday objects as divination and omens (featuring the paperclip bones)
