To know...

To will...

To dare...

To be silent.

There is not enough silence in the Craft, in the age of social media and instant information. Thus, I have decided to reclaim the last of the four powers of the sphinx for my own Craft, and remove my articles from this web site. I initially put them here so that potential seekers may read them and get to know us and our approach better, but I feel that the time for silence in my work and Craft has come. For seekers, these writings are still available by request.

The Tao that can be spoken in words is not the eternal Tao. ~Tao Te Ching, verse 1
