- Whispers on the Wind – because, eventually, everyone always talks to Vinnie. Personal musings on Paganism, Wicca, Italic Craft, and whatever takes my fancy.
- Eight Feasts – I’ve had a pagan spiritual practice since about 1970 and have been studying and teaching ever since. In the early 1990’s, my working partner and I started leading public events (Sabbats, Esbats, and classes) at Arsenic & Old Lace when it was a brick & mortar shop Cambridge and Brookline for a number of years.
One of my passions has always been studying the relationship between our surviving customs & traditions and their roots in the practices that were integral – and necessary – to our ancestors’ everyday lives. Our spiritual interpretations of these practices are profoundly meaningful for us, but I believe that they originated in the practicalities of living in close partnership with the Earth, Her cycles, and Her gifts.
I was finally motivated to round out my experiential knowledge with academic study (I love primary texts!) by earning a BA from Harvard with a concentration in Celtic Studies. I’m always looking for similarities, rather than differences, in all the belief systems that I learn about.

A student of the Craft for more than 25 years, she is an initiate of the Feri Tradition (her religious home), Reclaiming, and the Mevlevi Order of America.

The Society of Elder Faiths (SEF) is a Pagan religious organization incorporated as a church under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The SEF was founded by elders of five Wiccan covens in order to provide services to the local Pagan community which require a larger scale, more formal organizational structure than our individual covens can comfortably offer. The SEF exists to worship the Goddess and the Old Gods, to teach the principles of our faith, to celebrate the rites of our religion, to realize fellowship and unity within our membership and among the elder faiths, to render loving service to the Earth and all Her inhabitants, to train and ordain clergy of our faith, and to promote the understanding of our faith.

Covenant of the Goddess was founded in 1975 to increase cooperation among Witches and to secure for Witches and covens the legal protection enjoyed by members of other religions.

Hudson, who is Archpriestess of the tradition worldwide.
