Owner of The Sword and Rose Metaphysical Shop Passes After Christmas Day Fire

January 6, 2014 in Announcements, Pagan Leaders, Uncategorized by bethiejelenvanderyacht

On Christmas night just before 9pm, a fire engulfed a four-story Victorian home on Baker Street in San Francisco. The house was owned by partners of 29 years, Patrick Ferry and Randy David Jeffers (né, Sapp), who had been working on a total restoration of the property. But the fire destroyed more than just a beautiful example of San Francisco architecture – the fire stole from us a cornerstone of the Bay Area Pagan community. Just before midnight on December 26th, Randy David Jeffers passed over.

SF Fire 1SF Fire 2Twenty-eight years ago, Randy and Patrick opened up the Sword and the Rose in San Francisco’s Cole Valley neighborhood. Specializing in incense and oils, the shop soon became known as a metaphysical gem in the city. Many visiting Pagans would make a pilgrimage to the shop over the years, hearing of it through word-of-mouth and recommendations from friends. Even today, the store receives visitors from all over the world – a huge feat considering the store does not maintain an online presence. But Randy and Patrick’s reputation for kindness and true inner magick brought people to the small, hidden shop, leaving a big impression on all who ventured in.

“I remember my first time discovering the store, I felt like I was in an enchanted place far away from the City. I remember all the times I was in deep emotional pain & lost and somehow found my way to the store where Randy helped me make sense of things, taught me things, and helped me grow. I even brought my mom there to meet him. I always, always remember the conversation about Sobek & butterflies. What is remembered, lives.”   – Bella Crow, Writer

“Randy Jeffers was as kind to me the day I showed up at the Sword and the Rose – age 18, fresh to San Francisco – as he was twenty years later, when my first book came out, and as he was years after that, whenever I stopped by.

I didn’t see him as often in the later years as those early ones, but when I did, there was always something of interest to talk about as he carefully packaged blessed oils and fragrant incense. This one to the Faerie Queen. That one to Ganesh. This one to the Djuat. That, to Tetragrammaton.” – T. Thorn Coyle, Priestess, Author, and Activist

“Randy was an embodiment of a very special power. He truly walked between the worlds. In an era where magick is rationalized and explained away by psychology, Randy was unabashedly the real deal. I welcome him any time to the banquet of my Ancestors, and honor the many hours of counsel he gave me over the years.”   – Yeshe Rabbit Matthews, CAYA Coven High Priestess

The Sword and RoseAt this time the shop is closed, with a note on the door thanking the 115 firefighters who fought to contain the fire Christmas night. It is believed that a faulty extension cord is to blame, but the SFFD continues to investigate the matter. In a phone interview conducted from his hospital bed with NBC Bay Area on January 1, Patrick relayed that after hearing a disturbance and a crash, “I raced upstairs, and flames were coming out of the room. I tried to go in but it was way too hot. And then he lurched out and I was able to take him down the stairs.” Patrick suffered severe burns to his hands and his injuries will take some time to heal. But he won’t let his sorrow for the loss of Randy impede his recovery, “The last thing he would want for me is to be curled up in a ball refusing to go on because of my grief.”

Randy David Jeffers was 59-years old and leaves behind his partner of 29 years, Patrick Ferry. A ceremony for Randy is expected in the near future and the Sword and the Rose is likely to remain closed for about a month.

A PayPal account is set up for donations to help Patrick pay for rent, etc. while the store is closed and he recovers. Please send donations via PayPal to theswordandrosealways (at) gmail.com.

We at PNC Bay Area send our love and healing energy to Patrick, and to the entire Sword and the Rose family. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the firefighters and hospital staff at St. Francis Memorial Hospital.

Patrick McCollum at the International Day of Peace

September 19, 2013 in Events, Interfaith, Uncategorized by crystalblanton

patrick mcOn September 21, 2013 is International Day of Peace all over the world, and the Bay Area’s Patrick McCollum is there supporting leadership and interfaith work.

The adoption of this day happened in 1981 when the United Nations General Assembly. The website states that this day is meant “…to devote a specific time to concentrate the efforts of the United Nations and its Member States, as well as the whole of mankind, to promoting the ideals of peace and to giving positive evidence of their commitment to peace in all viable ways.”

The first time Peace Day was celebrated was on the opening day of the General Assembly the following year in 1982, and in 2002 it was officially designated for September 21st to be International Day of Peace.

This year Patrick McCollum flew out to the United Nations on September 18th to participate in this event. According to the Patrick McCollum Foundation website, “Rev. Patrick McCollum in partnership with Children of the Earth, will escort a large group of international youth refugees to the United Nations to participate in the International Day of Peace”.

This year’s theme is “Education for Peace”.

Interview with the Red Queen

August 30, 2013 in Events, Pagan Leaders by jelen

From “Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis Carroll, illustration of  ‘Queen Alice‘ by John Tenniel.

From “Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis Carroll, illustration of ‘Queen Alice‘ by John Tenniel.

Playing with my daughter, I notice she is much more “girly” than I was at her age. I never wanted to be a princess, waiting for some prince to rescue me. When I was a kid, the only role models I had — which even remotely reflected what I aspired to be — were more like She-Ra (a tough-and-tumble feminist), Rainbow Brite (who was really more like Strawberry Shortcake meets thoughtless little girl), and Barbie (ruining girls’ self-images since before my mother was born). We were playing in my daughter’s princess dresses (she settled on Merida) when she told me “Mommy, I am the princess and you’re the Queen, okay?” I asked her, “Why do I have to be the Queen? Why can’t I be the witch in the dungeon?” And she reminded me: “Mommy, Queens can be witches TOO!” She made a good point.

This reminds me of the “sovereignty” which has been a theme in the Pagan community lately. Here in the Bay Area, I feel it is fair to say that I am blessed with seeing the microcosm reflecting the greater magickal population. It started flowing through with the work of T. Thorne Coyle with Morpheus Ravenna and the Priests of the Coru Cathubodua at Pantheacon last year: a blood ritual to the Morrigan. It was through this “donated” blood that participants became part of the same tribe, under the leadership of this Queen. And what does this mean, “sovereignty” — for the Pagan community in general, not just devotees of the Morrigan? Why would a bloody war Goddess be interested in modern Pagans embracing their own power and independent nature? Does being a Queen mean authority over others as well? Is it a superiority complex or Satanic focus of self-fulfilling prophecies? Perhaps it’s not so much this particular deity/entity/being which is requiring it, or should I say commanding us all to look at self rule.

The sorority of feminine sovereignty is pretty big: ancient Ishtar/Inanna, Babalon of the New Aeon, blood thirsty Queens such as Morrigan and Kali; red dakinis are reaching out in Her name as Lilith and Tara/Kurukulla. Heeding the call are priestesses, witches, energy workers, and many others who are attuned with the currents our planet passes through. This wave of new generation community leaders reflects how our Paganism is evolving and changing with the times. They are initiating and ushering new ways of thinking and practicing ancient concepts. I was deeply reminded of this during conversation with another initiator in this sovereign wave, Lasara Firefox Allen; Priestess, International Author, Educator, and Activist for sexual liberation and revolution. Allen published Sexy Witch (2005, Llewellyn Worldwide) and is currently preparing to facilitate a weekend workshop she has titled “Embracing the Red Queen: Women, Competition, Cooperation and Co-Creation.” She reminded me that the actual etymological root for the word Queen is actually wife… “a sovereign woman as in one who does not need a King… (symbolic of ) the evolution of consciousness.” This is interesting in that lineages were at one point carried through the royal lines of women; a King was made by the Queen he married, not the other way around. Women are learning to have worth, not in comparison to her consort, but in standing in her own community of women.

For Lasara Allen, the Red Queen is not just the Sacred Whore but a kind of “egregore” which has evolved from the consciousness of all the ones who connect with this red current, something beyond the simple Archetype. “For now just think of it as RED; power, sex, love, anger, passion, desire, strength, blood, wounds, healing, birth, death. QUEEN” (Lasara Firefox Allen). Something I have known for a long time, and that is also a factor for many other women, is that ladies have a tendency to “tear each other down.” Sure we might be supportive face-to-face, but even at rituals or other public events I have overheard the cattiness which still lingers, usually spurned by envy or cowardice. Allen explained to me how “Women do not have a language for competition… this is about stepping into full power, full actualization.” She describes an idea that many feminists promise, but eventually fail to deliver: a real sharing of power. In her 30-something years of training and service (which consists of several formal titles along with applied practice), Allen draws from her experience in reviewing patterns and seeing what stages of development worked in success situations:

COMPETITION: Learning how to claim our power in an authentic, straight-forward, honest way. Owning the edges that we stand at and sometimes step over. Admitting we are powerful. Admitting that we are vulnerable. Entering into a willingness to become naked in our RED QUEEN energy.

COOPERATION: When we come together in our truth, we learn to become true allies to one another. We learn how to support one another in full expression and creative action. We learn how to hold one another up while staying strong in our core.

CO-CREATION: Building from cooperation, we move into the ability to trust ourselves and one another enough to give ourselves over to the process of creating a whole that is more beautiful, powerful, complex, healing and healed than we may have ever thought possible.” (Lasara Firefox Allen)

As a Queen, Allen also holds a title I find many leaders in the Pagan community lacking: Mother. Allen does what she calls “Transparent Parenting” — not hiding the services she provides or teachings from her family. Surrounded by a supportive network of family and friends, Allen, like many Priestesses, lives her life “walking with the entity.” “Our life is the biggest prayer we can offer,” she tells me. The openness shared with her children and spouse gives me something I can realistically envision for myself: the Queen rules the house, with one hand on a child and another on a scepter.

 

***Embracing the Red Queen Retreat will take place on privately-owned, beautiful, Goddess-blessed land in the Willits area. It’s out Pine Mountain way, Southeast of the valley. Spending the weekend in the great outdoors, we will ground our practice and process in the Earth Itself. Sleep under the stars, bring a tent, or sleep in the large, common-room tent space. There may be space inside the house to sleep on the floor by prior request, and there are a couple of beds that will be available by prior arrangement. There is a jacuzzi (bathing suits optional!), a beautiful fire circle, a lovely little garden, and a beautiful home in which meals will be prepared and served. Directions to the location will be made available with your other registration information before the event.

Pagan Organization Works to Support Oklahoma Relief

May 27, 2013 in Uncategorized by crystalblanton

solar cross logoSolar Cross Temple, a service based Pagan organization, has been collecting donations to support relief efforts in Oklahoma after the damage of an EF-5 tornado. Solar Cross has been working closely with Oklahoma local Pagan, Marcia Carter Tillson, and with OpOK to coordinate supplies for those who are on the ground in Moore, OK. Marcia Carter Tillson has been known for her work in Haiti relief efforts.

solar cross disaster relief OK

Solar Cross Temple announced the fundraising efforts last week, and has already reported an update. As of this Saturday, Solar Cross announced the purchase of 400 N95 rated particulate respirators, 48 pair large work gloves, 10 pair medium work gloves, 50 safety goggles, 20 tarps, and 10 shovels. At the time of this order, Solar Cross had collected a total of $545 dollars.

Updates and information have been posted on T. Thorn Coyle’s website, including a response quote from Marcia Carter Tillman about the supplies that have been ordered.

“Thank you thank you thank you! Your donations will be distributed within 24 hours of the time they arrive and sent out to Little Axe, Newcastle and the outlying areas that are not receiving the outpouring the greater area of Moore is.”

Marcia Carter Tillson

The devastation in Oklahoma from the powerful and destructive tornado has left a lot of need for volunteerism and support. Solar Cross Temple will continue to take donations for this endeavor. Thorn’s website states that donations as low as $10.00 to $15.00 could purchase shovels, work gloves, goggles, or storage bin.

Solar Cross has continued to show an investment in Pagans supporting disaster relief. In a recent post, Thorn wrote about Solar Cross commitment to service.

 “Solar Cross Temple helped raise close to $3000 for the initial round of Sandy Relief. I just did two more benefits while in NYC last week, which raised another $400 to send to Staten Island Relief who are still working hard to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. With your help, we have also sent money to buy winter fuel for elders at Pine Ridge and Rosebud. Together, we funded porta potties, socks, and scarves for Occupy Oakland. As a Pagan organization committed to education, worship, justice and service, these are all in line with our mandate. Solar Cross thanks you.

Thorn concludes her blog post with the following quote, “Let’s build the world we want by helping Oklahoma. Let’s spread the word that love in action is real, on the ground, effective magic.” A noble and worthy fundraiser for a magical and worthwhile cause.

Donations can be sent to Solar Cross via Paypal to solarcrosstemple@gmail.com. Make sure to indicate “Tornado Relief” in the subject line. For more information you can go to the following link for the blog post, http://www.thorncoyle.com/blog/2013/05/23/love-in-action-for-oklahoma/

Memorial Day Event Honoring Pagan Soldiers on 5/26/13

May 25, 2013 in Uncategorized by crystalblanton

pentacle flagTomorrow, May 26th, 2013, there will be a Memorial Day event honoring Pagans at the war memorial, across from the Lafayette Bart Station at 12:00pm.  This yearly event is being supported by the Bay Area Pagan Alliance, supporting local Pagans with an event to honor those Pagans who have died in service.

The Bay Area Pagan Alliance posted an event page on Facebook with specific details about the event. This Facebook event page states,

Yes, it’s the Memorial Day weekend coming up and as usual, we will be placing flowers at the markers for the Pagan soldiers at the war memorial at the Lafayette BART station. This year we are doing in on Sunday, May 26.

Brighde and Victoria really do need help as neither of these wonderful crones are nimble enough to clamber up and down that steep hill and place the bouquets. So we hope a number of you can come. Per tradition we will repair to Bo’s Barbeque in Lafayette afterward for some of the best ‘cue in the universe.

We will meet at noon. We usually park in the uppermost parking lot at Lafayette BART because there’s a crosswalk from that corner.

To find more information about this event, please visit the link included below.

Money Magic Class TONIGHT 5/23/13

May 23, 2013 in Uncategorized by crystalblanton

If you are like most people, you have a very complicated relationship with money. Emotional baggage passed down by parents, bad habits learned over the years, and sometimes just terrible luck can make us despise dealing with, or even talking about, money and finances.

But I recently took a Money Magic class at The Sacred Well in Oakland and I was not only surprised that I was not the only one who felt petrified by money, but also that after the class, I felt like money was no longer that monster hiding under the bed, waiting for completely the wrong moment to grab pull me into it treacherous claws.

Briana Cavanaugh, a financial coach and bookkeeper by trade, is presenting classes on Thursday nights at Terra’s Temple in Oakland that combine her analytical gifts with magic and each night will offer a different guest from the Pagan community that will lend their wisdom and energies to the workings at hand. So if you have a desire to change your perceptions of money, or simply could use a little more good money energy in your life, I highly recommend checking out Briana’s classes.
