We are accepting requests to have the updated Student Handbook and Application to be emailed to anyone interested starting Tuesday, January 6th. Please put Potential Student in email subject line.

Since I work 7 days a week and usually 5 to 7 hours almost every day, not including extra hours for Heart’s Spirit Online Coven gatherings, Open Chats and beginning of the month website maintenance and posts, extra weekly posts which has led to me being overly stressed causing other medical problems. I am no longer putting my health at risk and taking a chance of not seen my grandchildren grow up. So I am setting “Office” Hours for when I will be available for one on one talks, help with lessons, answering emails, doing regular posts, etc because it is that I either cut back on hours of availability and take a full day off every week or close down the school, coven, and both websites. Which I think many of you know all that I went through to keep Lady Abyss’ legacy and WOTC going so I really do not want to close any of it down.

These Hours Go Into Effect Wednesday, January 1, 2020 Emails can be sent anytime and will be answered during the following hours. These hours do not necessarily reflect the time I put in doing research and/or posting to both websites.

Sunday 10:00 AM TO 2:00 PM CT

Monday through Friday 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM CT

Saturday unless there is an open chat or gathering I will not be available at all. It is time for me to set aside special time for my family.

Then only exception to get in touch with me outside of my “Office” hours is an emergency of some kind. All my electronic devices are shut of every night between 7 and 8 PM CT. So it might not be until the next day that I get back to you.

The Open Chats will be at a new time starting at 1:00 PM CT ending at 3:00 PM CT on the 2nd Sunday of every month only, remember if you are a student you are required to attend except if you or a family member has an emergency.

Except for January the Open Chat will be on Sunday, January 19, 2020

Esbat gatherings time and day are also changing they will be held on the Sunday closest to the new or full Moon date starting with a social hour at 1:00 PM CT. The circle will be cast at 2:00 PM CT.

I ask you all to please respect my cutting back on the hours I spend doing website, school, coven, and 1 on 1 time with people so I can get myself distressed allowing my other medical conditions to get under control again also. Thank you in advance for your understanding, consideration of my requests, and as always your support.

Between Two Worlds: Gender Dysphoria, Death and Samhain

You might be asking yourself: what do gender dysphoria, death and Samhain have in common? For a lot of my readers, nothing. But for those of us who are transgender it can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. Especially at this time of year when we observe Samhain in the pagan community.

first time i have done this so cross your fingers

Between Two Worlds: Gender Dysphoria, Death and Samhain

It’s Still Cold But…

I greatly appreciate the men and women who work fixing outside problems with my internet that got me back online this morning.

While it is finally above 0 here it is still in single digits F. Which is to be expected for the region of the USA I live in but Mother Earth is resting, I hope, peacefully under a beautiful fluffy white blanket of snow.

Please remember we have an open Imbolc/Lammas Sabbat gathering in the Coven Life chatroom tomorrow starting with a social hour from 6:00 to 6:59 PM CT. The circle will be cast at 7:00 PM CT. Please do not enter the chatroom after 6:59 PM CT so the circle is not broken possibly allowing something nasty to creep in with you. Thank you.

We also have an Open Chat on Saturday, February 9th from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM CT that is open to anyone wanting to join us who knows you may even make a new friend or two. Come visit for as long as you like.
