Greetings from the SF bay area.

I'm new to the forum and to online discussions like this. For the past 26 years I have been practicing the Hermetic qabalah and up till moving to California I was part of an order (coven) that was very active so the need to share online wasn't needed. Not that it is a bad thing, just different from what I am used to.

Our order was very heavy into the traditions, rituals and magicks and while most would characterize it as a left hand path, it fit very well with what I had needed in my life.

As business prospered, I moved to northern California and found a very large community of wiccan and pagan followers which I thought would be a good thing. Having been in a very structured order I am still getting used to the differences here in the area. I've not followed the wiccan or pagan path so I am not sure if these ways of practicing here in my area are new or normal, they are just a lot different than what I am used to.

When I moved here I sought out like minded people so that I could continue to learn and grow. What I found is that all (the one's that I met) are more into the name than the practice. Hopefully that makes sense and please don't think that I am knocking what they do, just explaining what I have found here in the bay area.

Now I do not claim to know all the rituals or magicks, but here from what I have found is that those here are more symbolic in their practice. Again, I am knocking this practice, just trying to wrap my head around it as it is not what I am used to.

Anyway, since I've not found an order here in my area, I began looking for places where I can continue to learn and grow. I stumbled across this forum and found it to be an open place where people can gather and share. I come with an open mind and look forward to learning new ways.

Moved from the SF Area (San Jose) to Tornado Alley.  I don't miss the 280 at rush hour or earthquakes but the tornado sirens took some getting used to.  Hope to see you on the threads!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have been reading a lot of the older threads and I am sure that I will have plenty of questions.

I've not seen Enki, but not for a lack of looking  ;)
