Spring Folk Waters

I love the Spring, equal to all the seasons and the older I get, I find it funny that Spring folklore can sometimes be filled with shadow things equal to autumn or winter. I personally always try to see the corruptions in folktales from my shaman and dreaming perspectives, and to encourage a love of nature, not a place of fear & fright….

Szeptuch Shaman

Grandmothers  return is all about timing and I have found myself not enjoying the Slavic, Balkan and Viking Paganism, because it glorifies the maiden and the male dominance of leadership. I am a great fan of Slavic, Balkan and Viking Folk Healers, Female Shamans, Artists and Rituals that equally includes mothers and grandmothers actually leading ceremonies and leading spiritual teachings for the younger…

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – What is demonology and daemonology? Originally, languages went from only gesturing with the verbal spoken, until the first written languages were created later. Thus the origin of “daemon” in the older context when humans had less karma, meant a higher, supernatural, impersonal force, a power that is usually identified with…

Tigers in Tokyo

I call this 13,000 year old shaman’s effigy, the “Heart of the Ancient Tiger” because it has a special meaning for me. I have a very good buddhist, scientist and professional cellist friend from Tokyo, and although I had never had a dreaming with him before (the past twenty years) while he lived in the US, I…

Spider Totem

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Milena Sidorova, the spider dancer (below) takes great effort to perfect her dance and it shows.
