Energy and Astronomy: Working on Many Levels

My book Stand Like a Tree: Mastering the Movement of Energy, has just been published by Dark Moon PressThis book is about learning how to detect the currents of life energy or “chi” within and without and learning simple ways to master them and swim through them as well as about becoming more effective in magick by using energy more effectively. In Asian martial arts and medicine there is an old adage: "Chi follows I" (energy follows intent). This book is about developing a feel for the energy and developing the intent required to master it. Here is the photo of me from the front cover.

Stand Like a Tree continues my Warrior Philosophy series of books including Wiccan Warrior, Full Contact Magick, and Magickal Self Defence.

I'll be at Convocation ( teaching from 18-22 February, 2015. Hope to see some of you there.

I'm happy to announce that in December I got accepted into the faculty of Amber K's Ardantane School of Magick. I'm looking forward to teaching courses in their syllabus.

We've got the Motherhouse finished up here in Sandy Hook with three guest rooms so I'm looking forward to doing some teaching here.

In December I also was elected president of the Sunshine Coast Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada. I serve on their national Publications and Communications Committees and I just finished writing a Small Observatories Handbook for them. Readers are checking it over for me now and I hope that it will be published by the RASC later this year. I'm also producing a weekly astronomy show for the Sunshine Coast Centre on Coast Cable called Night Lights. Our first season was very successful and I'm beginning the process of putting together the second season now. Below is a photo of me up on the roof of the observatory we are building in Sechelt, which we hope to have open at the end of May 2015. You can check out the Sunshine Coast Centre's web site at
