“Cantaloupes” and Little Witches, The Best is Yet to Come!

Happy Samhain and New Year!!!

For those of my readers who keep up on me via social media may have seen the ton of projects and events I have been organizing and participating in. I finally have some time to sit down and write a blog post. As you can see, along with my new and magickal adventures, I decided it was time for a new look to the website. So, with this new look comes so many exciting things that are in the works for 2020. A few months ago, I didn’t think half of what is to come would even happen. I was forced into a depressive state that sent me into a place haven’t been in years. Although, I know that It has always been an ongoing battle, I didn’t see this coming, nor did I see the outcomes that came from it either. Its crazy how one “stupid thing” can create a personal Armageddon. Thanks to some amazing people in my life who stood behind me, I have been able to keep a good head on things and continue on my guided path. Yet despite all the amazing things that have been presented to me on this path, it has been hard to feel the joy and excitement as I work through this bat of depression and hollowness. Self-empowerment and shadow work are what is on the menu for this coming year. That and removing the hurtful and negative “cantaloupes” out of my life. Yes, I did say cantaloupes, I hate them, they ruin fruit salads with their overriding selfish flavor. There aren’t many things I hate in this world but they are number one on my list, next to cucumbers. Yuck!!

Despite all this my fruit salad has seen some great fruition and promise. Especially in the success and overwhelming response to the Pocono Witches Festival & Ball. When my guides said I was going to throw a ball I didn’t expect it to become one of the biggest Witch Gatherings in Eastern Pennsylvania. The support of the community has been beyond modest. The turn out saw over 1200 people over the weekend and despite being protested for being “evil”, we were able to help many children in need receive a warm coat this winter. Where is the evil in that? Not bad for its inauguration, and 2020 will see a bigger and better PWF. From holding this event, I have seen an influx of promotion and support in the Pocono area. In fact, this is how I got tagged in an article as the “Pocono Witch”, Which I still laugh at but I am rolling with it. Which brings me to my newest and next project, happening as we speak. I am days away from signing a lease on a storefront for The Hierophant, which will now become “The Pocono Witch Shoppe”. The Hierophant will remain the name for the online store, but thanks to this silly tittle I thought it would be a great way to tie it all together.

2020 Will also finally see my third book, “THE LITTLE WITCHES CURRICULUM: A parent’s guide to teaching witchcraft, magick, and Pagan spirituality”. Although, this was actually the first book I began writing four years ago, I have been holding off releasing it due to wanting it to be fully organized and reflective of the ever-changing ECE theories and practices.  I finally feel confident in the content that I knew that if it was ever going to happen, it would have to be now. So, for all those people who have asked me over the last 2 years of its release, it will happen this year. And for those who haven’t yet heard about it……

“The Little Witches Curriculum” is a resource for those parents that would like a comprehensive guide to raising their children in a magickal environment. It combines spiritual and magickal education with early childhood development practices and theories that make up one of the most comprehensive curriculums for their “Little Witches”. The curriculum provides hands-on magickal and spiritual activities and experiences that create “teachable moments” for parents rather than the traditional “forced” approach in education. Although, the chapters are broken up into a lesson format the activities are inclusive to the child’s own developmental stage and interests. This is done by allowing the child to dictate how the parents encourage spiritual education through their own interests rather than a direct approach. “The Little Witches Curriculum” explores the topics of meditation, magick, and the common lore found in many Pagan and Witchcraft traditions.

Best of all, the information and lessons in this book are built on the most up to date practices that are commonly used in early childhood education settings and classrooms around the world. Most importantly, the information is communicated in an easy to understand, fun and relaxed language and is relevant to anyone of any magickal tradition or spiritual background. Whereas, other books may only teach the “one-way approach”, “The Little Witches Curriculum” can be an open-ended resource for all Pagan tradition parents. Similar to my second book, “The Modern Witches Curriculum”, the Curriculum and layout can be started at any time of the year and on any day of the week. There is no beginning or ending to this book. It can be used over and over again. This is done by allowing the parent to choose how far and how much they want to explore in the topics. The lessons and activities have been publicly tested with both parents and children and have been well received by members of the Pagan community, known and unknown.

Just to give an idea of some of the activities you will find in the curriculum here is a sneak peek at part of the “Table of Contents”

Annotation 2019-11-03 143848

 

I am also in the process of the possibility of releasing two other books within the year. This will also see me doing multiple book tours and Pagan community events, which is my favorite part because I enjoy meeting and talking with all the amazing people of the community.

This is only a taste of what is happening and planned for 2020. With all this I will have no other choice then to have the most amazing fruit salad and what’s best of all is that I get to share it with the community.

Thank you all for your support and kindness.

Location Information:

Three Birds Coffee House

Bull Mansion with white space.jpg

 

Bull Mansion, built in 1862, is most famously known as the home of James Bull, co-owner of the Bush & Bull department store, and his family. Originally consisting of a simple stone building dating to the early 19th century, and later expanded into a tenement house, Bull bought the property in 1878 and vastly expanded the structure into a luxurious home by 1886. The exquisite interior details reflect James and his wife Mary’s considerable wealth and taste for the arts. Lovers of Victorian architecture and design will notice many Eastlake, Queen Anne, and Aesthetic touches in the mansion, including graceful wooden arches, delicate stained glass windows, and ornate cast metal fixtures, the vast majority of which are original and survive in excellent condition. The Bush & Bull department store was a fixture in downtown Easton until the 1930s, and at its peak contained over 35 departments and employed up to 300 people. The mansion stayed in the Bull family until 1943, after which it passed through several phases, including a long tenure as a funeral home, a very brief tenure as a movie set, an eloquent turn as a piano concert hall, and as a witness to many births as well as deaths. After an extensive renovation and restoration project, it is now the home of ThreeBirds Coffee House.

 

The State Theater Center for the Arts

See the source image

 Originally opened as a bank, and then reopened as Neumeyers Vaudeville House in 1910, the building dates back to 1873. In 1926, the building was renovated into The State Theater. Since the 1960s and 70s, as the theater was on the decline, workers and patrons began to spot a mysterious figure wandering about the property. “Fred’s” first appearances caused quite a stir. Staff complained of seeing a strange man loitering in the theater and disappearing through doors. Concerned employees called the police several times. Each time the police found nothing, although the police dogs appeared agitated when in the theater. A local theater historian identified the figure as the ghost of J. Fred Ostertock, the man who managed the theater from 1936 until his death 1957. It’s believed that he reappeared in the 1970s to oversee renovation efforts and to watch over the staff.
