Hello! I've been studying the Craft for quite some time now, since the early 90s, but was locked up tight in the broom closet due to my fundamentalist family and disapproving significant others. Very long dramatic story short, after an intense spiritual awakening in June of last year, I've separated myself from my family and from romantic relationships. I'm finally, at the age of 46, living as authentic as possible. It's quite an amazing feeling to be able to actually read, study, and practice in my own home without fear of repercussions, and boy, have I experienced some in the past. I'm excited to learn more and chat with others that share the same love! Blessed Be!
