Psychic Development Course starting soon

Starting Wednesday, 7th September for initially four weeks until 28th September with the possibility of evolving into a regular group, "Sacred Journeying", a course in exploring the psychic centres, will be taking place.
Psychic (sometimes also referred to as "intuitive") development is learning to open yourself up to your guides, the higher Universal energy or even listening to your higher self (or subconscious) and listening to these often subtle messages that come through. In essence we are ALL psychic or at least have the ability - it is just that we have closed off this ability for various reasons.

The Many Sacred Woods

The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.
Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity,
and some scarce see Nature at all.
But to the eyes of the man of imagination,
Nature is Imagination itself.
 
(“The Letters” William Blake, 1799)

Within contemporary Paganism many sacred trees can be found.  Within Wicca, for examples, there are nine such sacred trees mentioned in the “Rede of the Wiccae”[1] whose wood is deemed appropriate for burning in ritual fires.  These trees are:

Submission Call: Bibliotheca Alexandrina devotional to the Dark Gods

Bibliotheca Alexandrina, whose devotional anthologies I have contributed to in the past, are in the process of calling for submissions with respect to an upcoming anthology dedicated to the Dark Gods.  Deities that fall within this category include Hecate, Kali, Loki, Set, Lilith, Ereshkigal, Hel, and Hades, amongst others. Even benevolent deities such as Apollo, Freyja, Isis, and Brigid all have their shadow sides.
 
Dark is often associated with things like death, war, destruction, and violent change. But dark does not equal evil, even if the ways of the dark ones are often sombre, mysterious, and even frightening.
 
Bibliotheca Alexandrina are seeking stories and poems of the Dark Gods and Goddesses of any pantheon or religion.  Make these deities accessible, turn the old stories on their heads, or show the Dark Ones in all their glory (but in a way that makes them more than just a villain or nemesis for some other deity).
