I have practiced magick and worked with spirits for nearly 25 years. Having been first diagnosed and medicated for depression at age 12, which coincides with the beginning of my magickal path, I've been mindful all along the way of the need to balance magickal exploration with good mental hygeine. I spent a few years as a member and national speaker for The Theosophical Society in America, where I first discovered a passion for writing and speaking about spirituality and occultism. During that time, I became a Master Co-Mason in the Eastern Order of International Co-Freemasonry, an order that admits both men and women and emphasizes the esoteric side of Freemasonry. Since then, I've cultivated a relationship with Hekate, returning to my more witchy roots, and have embraced Left Hand Path practice as a path of self-development. I am currently studying Counseling Psychology at North Park University in Chicago, and dreaming of ways to merge my spirituality with this vocation. In addition to writing here at Way of Witch, I maintain my blog, Hermekate, at Hermekate.com. I have also been published in Isis-Seshat (international journal of the Fellowship of Isis) and the anthology Questing SET.
