“In the beginning, in a time that was no time, nothing existed but the Womb.

And the Womb was a limitless dark cauldron of all things in potential: a chaotic blood-soup of matter and energy, fluid as water yet mud-solid with salts of the earth, red-hot as fire yet relentlessly churning and bubbling with all the winds. And the Womb was the Mother, before She took form and gave form to Existence.

She was the Deep.”

– Barbara G Walker

 

Hey, I’m Kat! 

I am many things… well, aren’t we all.

But predominantly, today, I am a writer, a mother, a lover, and a witch. Yes, I have a broom. And yes, I fly with it.

I am an initiate into the ancient shamanic traditions of the Lyceum (formerly the Path of Pollen), a living lineage rooted in Europe and the British Isles. Our practices engage deeply with the Spirit of the honeybee, as a living symbol and ally.

The central belief (and living embodiment) is in the womb as first-brain, and the axis of feminine wisdom and power. Through the womb, and the honeybee, we are devoted to the sacredness of Earth.

My life is a lemniscatic dance, between motherhood and autonomy, between roots and flight, between the here and now, and the beyond places.

Between all the things… forever coming and going, reaching and drawing back. Over, and over, and over.

And within this flow, this infinite dance, are the gift of the feminine. They are many and they are sweet!
