A savvy book full of optimism and insight into the new The Age of Aquarius has arrived! Learn how to thrive in the Age of Aquarius! Surfing Aquarius is for people who want to make the best of the years just ahead by making brave, optimistic choices in a spirit of community. Every 2100 years, life on Earth comes under the influence of a different astrological sign: each “Great Age” bringing its own ruling symbols and patterns of meaning, technical innovations, political and social currents, organizational structures, and key ideas. Surfing Aquarius shows how 2012 is the beginning of a spiritual transformation when awakened human beings will create new societies based on Aquarian principles of inventive teamwork and empowered service. The book features the 11 Principles of the Aquarian Age: Revolution, Evolution, Unity, Friendship, Transparency, Magic, Comedy, Abundance, Electricity, Brilliance, and Freedom. Furst describes what life can be like in an Aquarian age: an economy based on abundance rather than scarcity, and a spirituality that celebrates union, friendship, and love. The book is, above all, a practical guide for those who see that the better we understand the opportunities and challenges of our time, and the better we know which way the wave of change is breaking, the better a chance we’ll have of getting ourselves and our families safely ashore.

In Faery Seership the truths we seek can only be found within ourselves, within nature, and within our relationships to nature. At the center of the Faery Tradition lies the Tree of Enchantment: the symbol for these relationships and for the threefold life of humanity. At each level of the tree, there are attending spirit forces that vary from beings of light to beings of shadow, from the ancestors of humanity to the architects of form and nature, from the destiny of our planet to the creation forces of the universe. The tree’s roots grow through the lower world, where all life originates and the dead travel, its trunk and lower branches reach out across the middle world, where elemental forces and the four directions guide us, and its highest branches reach the into the upper world and the Star realm. Weaving together folk tradition and extensive academic research, Orion Foxwood has created an accessible, beautifully written pathway into the Old Religion of Faery Seership. Based on Appalachian traditions, Wiccan studies, Celtic oral traditions, and the Craft from Western and Northern Europe, The Tree of Enchantment offers the student of Faery Tradition both introductory and advanced visionary practices and authentic tools to learn to navigate the three realms of humanity. With diligence and an open heart, the reader will learn to cross The River of Blood, pass through The Gate of Awakening, and over The River of Stars.

After the solitary practice of Wicca comes the legacy creation of Family Coven: Birthing Hereditary Witchcraft.

Crabtree draws directly from her own far-reaching experiences, demonstrating how anyone can have a familial spirituality that is inclusive and leaves the pain of indoctrination far behind. For every mother priestess or father priest who wanted to craft a spiritual practice for their family, or for any person wondering what their spiritual legacy might look like, Family Coven: Birthing Hereditary Witchcraft is the road map to finding that practice and crafting that view.
