Come Home to the Faerie Queen
A Seven-Week Faerie Shamanism Training
The Faerie Queen tells us, “I’m Mother of the Faerie Nation. And more of you are awake to your magic now—lovers, warriors, children and elders, changelings, cats in disguise, bards, wolves, gardeners, corporate executives, tricksters, star-children, and many others. Come to me, come home, I will protect you and tutor you until our starlit cells flow back and forth between us like the milky way in all its immense luminosity. You’re awake now, my Faerie children. The new global Fey village has begun.”
This class responds to the Faerie Queen’s call. You’ll create previously impossible possibilities for you, Gaia, and all beings. Honest. The curriculum is the culmination of decades’ work. Rewrite your DNA and break through to the stars.
The Fey-spark in humans re-ignited. Ancient starlit blood came forward till it finally hit critical mass; Faerie magic’s thoroughly awake in many people. This leaves us with new questions and new approaches needed to answer them:
* Can you have self-healing, prosperity, and great sex during present times?
* How can we better use our new/old/undiscovered/shifted powers, both magical and mundane?
* How can mystics—ranging from activists to quiet magicians—come together to love, celebrate, and protect Gaia? Can Gaia—and ourselves—be happy, or even survive, without such a tribe happening globally?
This class addresses these issues with innovative magic and fresh ideas.
You also receive lessons to be your style Faerie shaman. There are different places in Faerie, each special. One is your home. This class helps you go home. If you’re already home, you’ll learn (more) about its unique magic and spirituality, and use them practically to empower your mundane life.
This teleseminar is multi-leveled, suitable to entry-level beginners and adepts.
Come Home to the Faerie Queen qualifies as one of the two electives needed before advanced Third Road training.

If you see someone else’s class that sounds the same, this class is original material. No one teaches it but me.
Faerie holds daily miracles. I trust that.
A mystical event is no substitute for medical care by a trained physician, psychiatric counseling, or other therapeutic treatments. Participants are personally responsible for the consequences of their voluntary participation.
The Ecstatic Path, Serving Community, and False Ego
A few thoughts, May Day, 2012
The occult shop I worked in during the 80s had lockers out back, behind the building. Our customers would buy candles, which we would dress (for example, anoint with magical oils), bless, and then burn in the lockers. Some customers requested prosperity blessings, some asked for healing, some for other things.
It was such an odd priesthood by some standards, if not utterly dismissed and invalidated. The bunch of grungy lockers with wax dripping all over them was part of something many would consider hokey, outright ridiculous. But it was the real deal—powerful magic, and of service to community.
Priesthood (ministry, call it what you will) takes many sincere forms. Some have more prestige than others. But whether one receives a lot of acclaim or none at all, the Gods know when the heart is filled with juicy desire to serve. And this desire fuels our joy constantly. And the Gods bless such a heart. And the Gods know when, instead, the heart is heavily burdened, made sad by a self-deceiving ego-drive to be at the top of the heap. And the Gods bless this heart, too.
There is no heap. There is only the joyous dance of life and the chance to serve within it. May all we humans learn at deeper and deeper levels to dive into life fully, not mistaking titles and pomp for ecstasy and caring. And may we always know that ecstasy and caring go hand in hand, like lovers.
With its recent relaunch, this site is now split between three servers. (I know there are other options, it’s a long and grassroots story.)
http://www.stardrenched.com is mostly for the site’s blog, events announcements, and new additions to the site’s Grimoire.
Clicking anywhere on the above nav bar, except blog, brings you to the site’s original domain. Among other things, it has all Grimoire entries prior to 2012.
Way back, there wasn’t space for everything (this site is ancient), so some side pages got put on feri.com
I recently announced the “revitalized site” as “launched” but it’ll take months, maybe years, to polish the new look, finish updating text, etc.
I continue to blog at my other site. Two blogs with two separate RRS feeds. Welcome, old visitors and new!
