Welcome to my website! I hope you will find it interesting and informative.
I have been a teacher, facilitator and organizer in the Pagan community for 18 years. I instruct workshops in magick and Wicca, organize Sabbat rituals which are open to anyone, speak, present, make music, blog, and write. I often find myself doing Pagan advocacy and outreach work, as well as teaching and leading rituals. You'll find many of my written and musical works here to stream, watch and read.
I make my living through my metaphysical store in Vernon, BC, Canada, The Threads That Bind Us, where I sell Pagan ritual and metaphysical items, host numerous workshops, rituals and practitioners, teach Wicca and magick, practice and teach Reiki, and read Tarot and teacups. But I also travel to teach, and I bring my shop and its Witchy goods and supplies to Pagan festivals and medieval events through BC and Alberta.
I write a few articles for online magazines, and working on my book, "The Witch's Eight Paths of Power" inspired a series of workshops whose research takes me into areas of the Craft and of mysticism that are fascinating to me. I'm always seeking to expand my knowledge - the Craft is a lifelong study - and I find this exciting and I hope you'll share my journey!
I have been a practicing Witch for more than 20 years, and an active organizer and facilitator in the Pagan community since 1993. I am a third degree initiate in the Star Sapphire and Pagans for Peace traditions, and an ordained Priestess and recognized Religious Representative in the Congregationalist Wiccan Association of British Columbia. I was the first Local Coordinator in the Okanagan Valley for the Pagan Pride Project, a position I continue to serve in. I am a practicing herbalist (Dominion Herbal College) and a Reiki Master/Teacher.
I chose the Craft name "Sable Aradia" to honour the Goddess that chose me (Diana, Queen of the Witches,) and to acknowledge the purpose I believe the Goddess has asked of me. Aradia, daughter of Diana, was sent to the world to teach Witchcraft to the masses and liberate the oppressed. Certainly my work has primarily been in teaching and in Pagan advocacy and public speaking. My passion is to share the knowledge of Wicca and magick as a tool of empowerment, and to be a public face for Wicca and Witchcraft in a culture where misunderstanding and fear are still common.
I have been a writer from my childhood, and in addition to my work on magick, I also write science fiction and fantasy. My book "The Witch's Eight Paths of Power: A Complete Course in Magick and Witchcraft" will be published by Weiser Books in October of 2013. Currently I am working on a series of fan-fiction novels based in the Spelljammer® fantasy universe called "The Toy Soldier Saga." I also sing and record original music.
I teach workshops on the Witch's Eight Paths of Power online and in person, and I co-hostess and broadcast the Pagan Pathfinders Podcast with Nisaba Merrieweather, which brings together Pagan leaders, elders and facilitators all over the world to discuss issues that concern the Pagan community.
