Tegwedd ShadowDancer replied to Lilly's discussion Fight, flight or freeze in the group Mental Health Support group
"Would prefer the discussions in text form, instead of video.  When we are in a stressful or traumatic situation, a hormone called cortisol gets dumped into our systems, enabling the fight, flight, or freeze response.  When you've been…"

"On dealing with the shadow self, if we do not counter the force of the shadow and better understand it, we will continue to diss-associate ourselves from whom “we” really are as a whole. When we fail to admit to our vulnerabilities and…"

Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
I belonged before and really enjoyed being here. I was so sorry and sad when you closed down. Then when I heard you'd started up again, I was very glad. I have been a Pagan for over 40 years, and a Witch for 38, studied Magick for nearly 30 years.
About Myself & My Interests..
I like to write. No, let me put that better. I am a compulsive writer. I MUST write. I also like to read, crochet, embroider, read Tarot, Runes, Ogham, and crystal gaze. I also like to write spells, and create rituals.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
Chandria, Isaac Bonewits, and Shamandot. Chandria introduced me to the Craft of the Wise. Isaac introduced me to Magick, and Shamandot introduced me to shamanism. I have also read the works of Silver RavenWolf, Christopher Penczak, and Dorothy Morrison.

Dorothy Morrison, Silver RavenWolf, Christopher Penczak, Isaac Bonewits, Frank Herbert, Robert A. Heinlein, Konstantinos, Anne McCaffrey, Christine Feehan.

Now That We're In

Posted on June 26, 2017 at 1:09pm 2 Comments

Now that we’re in, I’m opening boxes.  My plan was to open 5 boxes per day, but that has gotten stymied because all I see are book boxes, and bookcases aren’t set up with shelves yet.  My microwave oven, toaster, and slow cooker all arrived on time on Thursday afternoon.  The people whom Len and I eat lunch with over at the clubhouse are congenial and friendly.  The lunches are a little watery, but edible.  There’s one that sticks out in my mind the most and that was the chicken…

Labeling, and Why It's Necessary

Posted on May 8, 2017 at 2:45pm 1 Comment

The past couple weeks we've been packing, mostly my books.  It's a dual person assembly line.  I take the books from the shelves, and hand them 1 at a time to Stephen, who actually does the packing.  He tapes the box closed, and then I do my thing.  My thing, in this case, is labeling the boxes.  It occurred to me how many people of a certain age resist being "labeled."  They believe that this puts them in a certain box, from which they may never escape.  Well, I have news for these people;…
