Second Edition of Dancing the Sacred Wheel is almost available

Cover to the second edition of
Dancing the Sacred Wheel
It has been a rather interesting journey over the last six months.  Towards the end of last year I was under the impression that a local publishing company was interested in picking up the manuscript for Dancing the Sacred Wheel: A Journey through the Southern Sabbats.  However, they changed their direction to one where they "assisted" upcoming authors to get published which was not what I was after. 
Having already self-published the first edition, I was actually looking for a publisher to take over the publishing of my nearly sold out book.  With Australian-based publishers few and far between, I decided to take matters into my own hands again and venture into the world of Print-on-Demand (an area of book printing that is quickly gaining popularity).

Exploring the Mystical Matters of the Ancients

On Sunday, 25 May 2014, participants will be invited to "step into the realm of the mystic and discover simply techniques to help improve your life". There is also the opportunity to "create your own talisman adorned with sacred symbols, empower crystals, and undertake a candle protection blessing" or so goes the description of my Mystical Matters workshop that I will be running through the WEA South Australia.  It was difficult for me to attempt to describe all the things that will be covered throughout the day in this very interactive workshop in only 25 words, especially as an increasing number of new ideas have come to mind since I first submitted the description.
So what will actually be happening in this workshop will more than likely depend on the openness and enthusiasm to experiment of the participants.
