Dorothy Louise Abrams
Dorothy Abrams, known as Anemone Webweaver in the magickal community has practiced and taught Witchcraft, paganism, and core shamanism since 1984. Co-founder of the Web PATH Center, a pagan church and teaching center near her home in Clyde, New York USA, Dorothy has served as priestess and teacher weaving the Web of community among local pagans as they celebrate the solar and lunar sabbats. Material for Identity and the Quartered Circle and her other non-fiction titles on pagan thought and practice are complied from her original seminar materials in eclectic Wicca I-IV, healing, tarot and shamanic intensives. The Wiccan seminars guide students from the introductory level through initiations as healer, storyteller and sage. The shamanic intensives guide students through the practice of drum trance journeys all the way to soul retrievals. With her partner Merlin and other members of the Web PATH she practices Reiki and chakra healing. She taught an introductory course on A-mazing Tarot at the local community college.
â€œGrounding and ethics are the basis of everything,â€ She insists. Magic, encounters with the Gods and Goddesses, ritual and meditation grow from that. Her approach is from an inclusive cultural base and a feminist theology, both of which are her hallmarks. Dorothyâ€™s essays have been published in Sage Woman and PagaNet News. She has two blogs. Anemoneâ€™s Assays focuses on pagan essays. Writing in the New York Lake District focuses on topics of writing and publishing.
Dorothy is a member of Rochester Writers Association, in Rochester NY, the Pagan Writers Community on line, holds a BA in literature with graduate studies in literature at the State University of New York at Cortland. She taught secondary-school language and literature in the early part of her career. Later, as a community activist in Auburn NY, she was co-founder of S.A.V.A.R. the sexual assault crisis center. She established the area Battered Womenâ€™s Shelter through the Cayuga County Action Program. Following that she worked for the State of New York as a human rights specialist (investigator).
