Larry Cornett

Larry Cornett started along his Pagan path as a civil rights activist in the early 1960's. Rejecting the idea of an all knowing, all powerful, all good, one and only God and the simultaneous existence of evil, he went on to study Physics in search of deeper truth. At Purdue University, he practiced a blend of Shamanism, ritual, and counterculture social and anti-war activism -- with a metaphysics blending quantum mechanics, Oriental mysticism, Unitarianism, and love of Mother Earth. He was also initiated into the Reformed Druids of North America.

He went on from his BS in Physics and some Graduate level Astrophysics, to work for the Vietnam Moratorium Committee and to get an MS in Civil and Environmental Engineering in 1972. He worked as a full-time professional in environmental monitoring, risk assessment, regulation, pollution control, and project and program management until recently -- when he was fired from a Department of Energy (DOE) Contractor after he documented the major dangers to public health associated with DOE sites, actions and plans, along with attempts to cover-up.

In the 1970's, he shared water with Church of All Worlds (CAW) at anti-war conferences and helped found the Chameleon Club (which evolved into ACE).

He apprenticed with Circle in the early 1980s and was initiated in Amaranth Energies (a Dayton, Ohio NROOGD Coven that relocated to San Francisco, CA), and later in a New York City NROOGD Coven. While in New York City, he also studied in a Cherokee Medicine Society, was a member of the original ADF Mother Grove, and started publishing his Calendar of Events. The calendar is mentioned in Drawing Down the Moon, To Ride a Silver Broomstick, and numerous other publications.

He moved to Birmingham Alabama in 1985, where he organized Pagan Web (an Earth Religion Rights and networking organization) and a Wiccan Shamanic Coven. In 1986, a new job sent him to the Washington DC area, where he lived in Fairfax Virginia, and later in Vienna, Virginia. In Washington DC area, he founded VisionWeavers Coven in 1986, and later was a founding member of the CAW Triskelion Nest, along with the Coalition for Pagan Religious Rights, the Earth Religions Legal Assistance Network (which has an e-mail list ERAL), the Earth Religions Assistance Association, and Earth Chalice (a Unitarian Pagan group in Arlington VA).

Working with the Nature Spirits

Each plant, animal, rock, and other entity has a spirit (consciousness resonance matrix). These spirits can join together, in a hive-mind, as a spirit of an area. Nature spirits include real biological intelligences, are psychically powerful, and are much less abstract and controllable than the Elementals that many magical people who perform all of their rituals indoors are familiar with. They can be extremely powerful allies. This is a hands-on workshop in which practical techniques for contacting nature spirits, finding power spots, and working with Nature Spirits in magical workings will be taught.
