Initiation In the Western Mystical […]

Winter has started here on the Sea of Trees in Southern California. We’ve had the heaviest rainfall in a decade and it’s been quite cold (for us), dipping down below freezing. So I’ve got the heater on and I’ve been enjoying a lot of great reading with some fairly recent books. I’d like to share […]
