My name is Colleen, I live just outside Heidelberg, Germany and am the mother of two grown children. I was born in the USA, but I grew up in various locations in Europe, and feel very European at heart. I graduated from High School in Italy and from University in Ireland, where I studied German, Italian and Linguistics. Later I again attended University, to study Social Science & Psychology; my intention was to become a psychotherapist, but after 3 years, I instead opted to devote myself to spiritual development and transformational healing modalities. I am a Reiki teacher and, additionally, have had the good fortune to have accompanied and assisted a Korean shaman over a two-year period, thereby learning more than any book or weekend-workshop could ever teach about that. In 2006 I founded a spiritual healing practice, which in 2013 I dedicated (in Service) to Hekate. Other than that, I earn my bread by free-lance work in the machine building industry specifically in the field of technical documentation.
Balance is important to me in every area of life and I find it of utmost importance to balance magical practice with a discipline such as the martial arts (as Eirini and Constantinos do) or Yoga (which I have been practising since the mid-1970’s).
As for my specific magical practices: I am and have always been a solitary practitioner. A lot of what I do or know comes from a source inside or beyond myself. I learned very early on (the hard way) how important the will is in magic and how to be careful what you wish for and I steer clear of all manipulative magic. I have never been convinced by any of the established traditions in magic and have always viewed them with a healthy pinch of scepticism. I am supplementing my knowledge and experiences with studies in the Quareia system of magic.
Theurgy and Philosophy are two different methods which lead to the union with God.
