Bookings & Appearances

General Information

I love to teach and I love to travel, but I also have significant responsibilities to my loved ones, my spiritual community, and to my store so I have a very full schedule. If you would like me to come to your area to teach or to offer rituals, I need significant notice. 

I am available to do book signings with brief lectures, short workshops of 1 - 4 hours, full day or weekend long intensives, and multi day appearances for conferences and gatherings. I am also available to offer or to coordinate rituals and ceremonies.


A list of some of the workshops I am willing to offer are available here.  


My fees will vary greatly depending upon the nature of what is requested, the nature of the group or business making the request, the venue, and whether it is a fundraiser for a cause, etc. This needs to be worked out on a case by case basis though I do have general guidelines. My one hard and fast rule is that it should not cost me money to teach in your area. That means that at the minimum my costs for travel and housing will be covered as well as a complimentary registration if it is at an event. 

Contact me with what you are proposing and I’ll let you know what I think is a reasonable fee. 

If I am making more than one appearance in a region or I am setting up a tour, I will let you know so that travel costs can be divided amongst the parties in question.

Confirmation And Contracts

I believe in clear communication to avoid confusion or disappointment so I  prefer a written and signed agreement. If you have a contract that you normally us we can use that or I can draft something for us to use. I will be a bit anxious if I don’t get an email or a call confirming all details no later than 3 weeks out from an event. This doesn't mean contacting me 3 weeks out from your event, it means nailing down any last details no later than that.

A Note On Food And Housing

I am a vegetarian and if it is a lengthy appearance I hope to be fed or to be taken to places where I can get proper food. This means more than salad, as without protein I will fade and not be much of a speaker. I will eat eggs and dairy but I eat no fish, poultry, or any sort of animal flesh. Some people call themselves vegetarian and bend the rules, I don’t. I have been a vegetarian for over 25 years. I do have a deep and abiding love of coffee.

If I am being booked for a camping event I expect that you’ll provide me with food, a warm dry place to sleep, and whatever gear I’ll need as only so much fits in my luggage on a plane.

If I am booked for other sorts of events I prefer a hotel room. If you are trying to save money because it is a nonprofit event or small business, I may be willing to stay at a private home. Contact me and we’ll see if the arrangements you are offering seem reasonable to me.

Why All These Details?

I have been at this for many years and could fill a few pages with horror stories and cautionary tales.
