Once again, a long silent spell. So sorry. I really am interested in writing here. I just haven’t had words lately.
I was going through my blog roll and read a long and wise post about skepticism and doing one’s homework when it comes to choosing teachers. This is true in pagan circles (as she points out) as well as other circles. There are many people who are cults of personality just waiting for someone to fall for their story hook, line and sinker.
So take a read of Sarah Anne Lawless’s post. It’s a good reminder that we must maintain a healthy dose of critical thinking when we are choosing teachers.
