New Website, New Blog

Welcome to my newly rebuilt website and blog. I just retired my original sixteen year old dinosaur of a website because in 2016, using the old version is like expecting people to look at smoke signals when all eyes and SEO are only on the latest technological platform. I'm delighted with this fledging site on Shopify and hope you will share it with your friends. I have more to edit and add, so check in frequently. Please excuse any glitches here-- I wanted to get it live asap and still need to fix some things. Please contact me through the Contact page about any mistakes or issues you see. I'd love to hear from you and improve the site for you!

Altars, Shrines, Sacred Spaces

June 23, 2015, updated February 2017 Altars and shrines and puja tables are all part of setting up your home as sacred space. Here are examples from my own home and ones I’ve enjoyed during my travels. I’ve also created a Pinterest board for altars, shrines, blessings rituals; it has over 300 pins (or images) that may inspire you. My home puja table is a contemporary reproduction green low Chinese sideboard. My puja set is the principal resident of the table, in front of a silk- and golden-framed Tradition of Masters photo. Some day I will get the components of this puja set gold-plated. I’ve had it since 1974 and it’s been used not only by me hundreds of times but...
