Dream Time Pleasures - Becky Starr
Finding Your Inner Wisdom: Creating a Unique Divination Tool - Becky Starr
"I've got your number!" - Brenda Berry
By taking the numerical value of each letter in your name and adding them by a process of easy arithmetic, and then applying the same technique to your birth date, you can pick the right jobs, mates, friends, places and times - you can show yourself how and when to solve each important problem in your life, and when is the best time to implement those decisions. It is also a science of vibration. Everything in the universe moves - up, down, around or across, fast or slow - and it moves at a certain rate - it's own. This rate of movement can be measured numerically. This applies to you, to the world around you, to your personal relation to the world, and to the people in your life.
Numerology is as old as recorded history. It is also as new as the next decision you are going to make. Where friends advise you, Numerology directs you. Join me and I'll show you just how easy it is to get your number.

Becky Starr is an "eclectic Egyptian pagan" and has been playing in the herbs for about four years, primarily with incense blending. She is a teacher by profession and passion, finding herself a now frequent workshop leader for Celebrate the Circle Learning Circles and Quest events. Becky is the Workshop Coordinator for Quest's next spring event in April 2004. Becky is a Priestess of Isis, member and frequent ritual team-member of CTC, and lives in Durham, NC.
Brenda Berry is the Director of Religious Education for the Unitarian Universalist Church of the Shenandoah Valley and the Facilitator for their CUUP's group - EarthWays. She is also the Kitchen Manager in a local health food store called Harvest Moon. A daughter of the natural world, she has been studying and practicing Numerology since 1990. Being a Sag, Brenda dances to her own drum and refers to herself as an "Earth-ee" (rather than pagan) because she celebrates all the ways of the Earth - from natural health care, nutrition, & exercise to heal the body; through the use of magick & Runes, coupled with the use of logic & intuition to guide the heart and head; to fiercely searching for the light of truth - within & without - to bring growth and wholeness to the spirit. She enjoys basket weaving, gardening (organically of course), going for long walks on the beach with her husband John, singing in the shower, and making people laugh.
Tamia has been a student of herbs since childhood. Herb gardens have been a fixture in her life everywhere she has lived - even container grown ones in her apartments at college. She has used herbs in culinary and medicinal modes for many years, including running a small business, Buckingham Grange, that sold fine herbal fare at the Hillsborough Farmers Market in the mid-1990's. Basketry came into Tamia's life in 1994, when she took a course on the subject at the Durham Arts Council. Baskets and their construction quickly became another of her passions, one indulged in, from the creative end of the subject, in the winter - preferably near a fireplace for hours at a time.
Dick Merritt, a retired professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association, led massage workshops for many years. Dick grew into paganism through the influence of eco-feminist spirituality in the 80's. It was a natural fit, given his agrarian background. He is an eclectic neo-pagan and Unitarian Universalist. Dick characterizes himself as a Joseph Campbell pagan because of his conviction that religion is metaphor. Strongly influenced by the Creation Spirituality movement, he describes himself as a panentheist. He enjoys frequent rituals and purification ceremonies. A techno-pagan, he is a UNIX technician.
