COMING IN LATE SUMMER. SOMETHING NEW FROM DOLORES.
PUBLISHED BY SOUNDS TRUE INC.
YOUR UNSEEN POWERS" by Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki
"Your Unseen Powers" will be a complete
home-study course in the practice of Western magic. The audio
portion will be from 9 to 10 CDs of teaching, in which I speak
directly to my listening apprentice to guide him or her through
each step of the process. It starts with the basics —
why you want to practice magic, what it will ask of you, what
you can expect to get back in return — and moves on to
more advanced elements, like building your own Temple, performing
rituals, and using Pathworking to commune with your most important
spirit guides. In addition to the audio, the course will have
an in-depth workbook with diagrams and illustrations, as well
as about thirty reference cards. If you do the full course,
over a period of months it should give you a solid foundation
in your own practice of magic. Please keep your eyes on the
True website, as well as this site.
Please also see the new section
of the SOL web page for new releases from Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki
and other SOL-related authors. You can find that page here.
Jodi Monogue (Lady Galadriel)
It is with great sadness that we record the passing of Lady
Galadriel, a lovely , gentle and much loved soul. She leaves
the occult world darker for her leaving. With her much loved
partner she led The Grove of the Unicorn in Atlanta for many
years and was a brilliant teacher of the Craft. Her many students,
friends and close family will miss her presence in their lives
as will we all. We can ill afford to lose such people but when
the call comes it is one we must obey. We ask all SOL Students
and Affiliates to light their Passing Candles and send Jodi
onwards into the arms of The Great Mother.
I had the privilege of spending some days
with her last year and will always treasure that time together.
To all her family and the Grove of the Unicorn we extend our
love, our sorrow at their loss and ours, and our prayer that
Anubis will guide her gently into the Halls of Osiris. This
is one soul who need never fear the weighing of her heart.

This january I had a wonderful time in Boulder
with Sounds True Inc.
We recorded 9 discs between Monday and Friday amid laughter,
stories, chinese lunches and great company. Tami Simon has created
a tightly knit group with a single goal in mind and the atmosphere
I had a wonderful crew to work with and look
forward to working with
them again. By the Wednesday it has been decided that the whole
thing would be upgraded to a Home Study Course with books, Flash
Cards, illustrations etc. So I came home to a whole new load
of work to do.
Called "Your Unseen Power" we hope
to have the course out by
September. In the mean time keep watching the Sounds
True home page, they have a great selection of
material and a lot of it would be of
interest to people in SOL. I will keep you updated on the progress.
This is a new venture for SOL and for me personally
and opens a whole
new area of teaching.
This year will be a busy one, with workshops
and lectures in London,
Ireland, Scotland, North of England, Holland, Germany, and of
the USA. Many thanks to everyone who sponsored and helped in
looking forward to seeing most of you in 2006.
