Tchipakkan is an artist, writer, healer, and eclectic pagan-heathen-rustic. I have been worshipping the old gods openly since my teens (I had very open-minded parents). I have a small farm in NH aimed at self sufficiency and sustainability, which I share with 3 of my children, and a varying assortment of animals (sheep, goats, rabbits, chicken, ducks, geese, peafowl, and cats of course). Author of Divine Cookies- a cookbook with recipes about gods and magic, and the Rune article series in the Blessed Bee Pagan Family Magazine. I practice and teach RuneValdr and Reiki, huna healing, herbalism, and soothsaying with runes, palmistry, tarot, numerology, and other systems. Over 30 years in the Society for Creative Anachronism have brought me many friends, and many historically oriented skills, as well as more knowledge of early Anglo-Saxon culture than is conceivably useful. I love to teach useful skills like from cooking, sewing, and herb use, to divination and other more esoteric activities to participating in endless discussions of everything from healing to folklore. When we are living consciously- every act is a prayer.

For many of us pagans who relate to the Earth as a living being as well as environment, he’s ‘living the dream’, having bought acres of land on which he farms and raises animals, as well as running classes and religious rituals. He’ll be … Continue reading →
When the holidays come around I like to remember that mostly our ancestors celebrated when they were able to get together. “Maypoles” were erected and danced around from early May through the Summer Solstice. I also prefer when people take the time, care (and practice when needed) to do the ribbon weaving … Continue reading →
