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.

People don’t want to be labeled a “nut”, so they keep their experiences to themselves. Admittedly, it’s easier when it’s anonymous, but … Continue reading →
After seeds are planted, we are at the mercy of whether the season brings rain or drought, heat or cold. But often the success or failure of our harvest depends on our daily care, whether we weed and water, whether we watch for insects and other things that can harm what we’ve … Continue reading →
