I’m Shannon and I’m delighted that you have arrived here. I’m a dedicated animist and ritualist and work at the intersection of mythos and lore, dream midwifery, ancestral reverence, and oracular mediumship. You can find out more about me here so I will forego the more detailed introduction and we can dive right into, I am most hopeful, exploring these heart matters in a cultivated space that can nurture our interactions more wholesomely.

Being with one another is vulnerable, allowing ourselves to be seen and valuing connection beyond measure is, I believe, critical if we want to change the paradigm of individuality at the expense of cultural connection. It’s important to me, this grande experiment via Substack, that I’m not just sending my thoughts out into the void but that they are landing in a place that inspires an excavation, deconstruction, and exploratory wonder of all the liminal pathways in which we may connect. I’m quite passionate about collective and personal transformation. So if you are into exploration and insight around the ethos of being and belonging in connection with the seen and unseen realms, reclaiming the ancient ways of animistic, earth-honoring purpose, and living with fully embodied joy for the well-being of the world, we may just belong together.

Supported, Sustaining & Generating

I most heartedly welcome you to join by subscribing to ‘The Honeyed Oracle’. You’ll be among the first to hear about new writings, books, courses, and events. This aims to replace my monthly newsletter, but also offers a more substantial connective weaving if you’d like to go deeper. Much gratitude in advance for your consideration.

  • At the ‘free’ ~ Supported level, you’ll receive an emailed monthly newsletter with news and reflections, a suggested monthly practice & journal prompt, and course discounts that are exclusively for subscribers.

  • Sustaining (Yearly/Monthly Options) ~ If you’d like a peak at exclusive new writing, as well as a live zoom call where we will engage in a monthly New Moon Ritual Experiential Practice, then for $5 a month/ $50 a year, you can have articles sent directly to your email inbox at least twice a month. Here, you will find a portal to the liminal thresholds which weave together practices and ideologies which sustain our relationships with the alchemical ethos of the animate. This is also where by clicking the “leave a comment” button at the bottom of each post, you will be able to participate in subscriber-only conversations with me relating to those potent meanderings I dare endeavor to put into words or relate with currently.

  • Generating (Founding)~ Like a ripple, your support allows folks with lesser financial means to attend programmes that I and others at the Centre for Ritual & Reverence, offer. Your support also will support me personally in eking out the personal space needed to finish the upcoming book on Psychopomps which is enthusiastically appreciated. You, of course, will receive the benefits of the other tiers as well as dedication in the big book.

Stay up to date

You won’t have to worry about missing a thing. Every new edition of the newsletter, or of my blog posts if you’re a paid subscriber, goes directly to your email inbox. Love what you are digesting here, consider sharing with a friend.
