Pax Vobiscum

In the early 1970s I gave you a cream rose in John's shop, Northampton.
You inscribed a book for me, & although we were of very different Craft backgrounds, we managed to get along.
I'm sure the Goddess has you in her arms, both of you, & is not done with you yet. Floss.


Farewell to a friend I never met
Saturday, February 19, 2000 at 06:23:09 (EST)

The Witches Bible was the first book I read upon beginning my studies of this path, and its lessons and guidance have proved invaluable. Although, as with many here, I never met Mr. Farrar, I know his presence will be sorely missed in the pagan community. My sincerest condolences to Janet and Gavin. My fiance is helping me find my path, but I will always cherish the start the Farrars gave me with their work. Fare Thee Well, may we meet in the next world.

Lost Soul

New to the Craft
Saturday, February 19, 2000 at 03:09:09 (EST)

Although I am new to the craft, through reading Stewert Farrar's obitutary, I am drawn to read more about a man that has been described so vividly.
May his family take strength in the love and admiration that has been afforded him in many articles and emails, web pages and phonecalls. The pagan community has obviously lost an old friend.
Blessed Be


May never his lessons be forgotten.
Saturday, February 19, 2000 at 01:04:57 (EST)

A wonderful way to see a great man off to the next realm. Though sad may we be, Mr. Farrar now dwells in a land much greater than ours. With love, may his soul continue on it's destined path.

Saturday, February 19, 2000 at 00:49:26 (EST)

Forever in our hearts you will be,

Death is not a door that closes, but one that opens...and we walk through. When we Witches stand in the temple between the worlds, that door disappears and the living and the dead commune as the eternal spirits that they are.

"To fufil love, you must return again at the same time and at the same place as the loved ones; and you must meet, and know, and remember, and love them again."

We'll meet again, my friend.

Stewart and Janet Farrar's books on Wicca and paganism in general set me on my correct path for the rest of this mortal life. I want to give you my deep heartfelt condolences Janet, but to let you know it is only in the blink of an eye for the universe that we're on this Earth...all who know and love Stewart will re-join him one day in the Summerland for eternal reunion. Your friends are many and loving admirers are many thousandfold...

His spirit lives on
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 22:21:53 (EST)

Dear Janet and Gavin, I am sorry for your loss, but I know that Stewart will always be with you in spirit. He was a great teacher, and those of us who read his books will miss his guidance. Though I never met him in this life, I feel his words have touched me deeply, and I am sure we will meet someday on the Other Side. I know, as do you, that he is now in the loving arms of the Goddess. I offer my condolences to you and all of Stewart's family and friends.

Blessed Be!

While Stewart has passed to the Summerland, his light will never diminish. The fire of knowledge, reverence to the Gods and Goddesses, and understanding burns brighter from his touch. Magick and compassion were not simply concepts for him; they were a way of life.
One of our communities Dearest Elders, Stewart Farrar, while gone from this plane of existence, will never be forgotten.

My heart and thoughts are with Janet and Gavin. I also wish to send them my heartfelt thanks for having shared this wonderful teacher with us.

Brightest of Blessing,
In love, respect and gratitude,

Thank you for all you have given us and those who will come after us. Thank you for showing us the way and for coming
into our lives when we needed you.

Maybe next time around we will meet, but just because we didn't this time doesn't mean I haven't felt your loving influence.

Hail and Farewell, Beloved Elder!
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 18:54:28 (EST)

I had the privelege of meeting Stewart Farrar on several occasions, and also of hearing lectures that he and Janet presented. My personal impression was of a cordial, very knowledgeable man with a deep commitment to his work and his spirituality (these two things were no doubt one and the same to Stewart). I was saddened by the news of his passing, and I offer sympathy and blessings to Janet, Gavin and all who love and miss this honored Elder of our community.

I may not have known him peronally but I know of him & I know he will truely be missed
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 17:55:02 (EST)

There is so many thing I could say about this great man. But first it is a great losses to me personally to have never met him, What I know of Stewart Farrar came from his work. He was a very influencutal man and had an very influence over my life I and I am sadden to think that future generations my not be able to learn from this great man as I did. But I guess they will have to live with the knowlegde he has already shared. Even though I think he had much more to give.

We will miss Mr Farrar's Knowledge and Wisdom
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 17:51:06 (EST)

I don't know what to say because many of you have already said what should be said...anyway...
We didn't know the personal side about Stewart Farrar although it reading his books...
It's a kind of hipocrisity to say that we miss the personal side of him..those things...the family and close friends will say...we can just say what we are going to miss...what we know about him..and what we could know more..but he didn't have the time to tell us...
We are going to miss his Knowledge, his wisdom, his good sense...everthing of good he could show us through his books...

We are going to miss you Stewart, but we hope to find you somewhere else, and in another time, maybe...who knowS?
I know that what I have just said was kind of annoying but it is what I feel...and I don't know how to express it better...
Janet: We are here for you...and with you!

Farewell to Stewart
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 17:41:36 (EST)

I send love and support to you, Janet and Gavin. I am so glad that Stewart passed softly into the next world.

I feel blessed that we were able to connect so deeply with the three of you in Avalon, Witchconsin in '95 and again in '96. I will not forget the occasion, in ritual, in which Stewart did not want to leave his audience with the Dark Goddess/Crone/Receiver of the Living in the Underworld. He said that he was prepared to stay with Her without fear. This was in 1995. It is my hope that that experience was a comfort for him. We all must feel Her embrace, and I think Stewart knew it would not be far away. "Unto Me all things must return..."

He was remarkable for so many reasons. He taught the Avalon Community in workshops, but the real teaching came through his conversations and his example. Everyone in Avalon fell in love with the three of you.

May Goddess comfort you, Janet and Gavin. Know that the entire Avalon Tribe sends you love. We feel so priviledged to have known Stewart, and we know he is enjoying the greater mysteries on the other side.

Hail and Farewell, dear Stewart. May the Old Ones receive you and celebrate with you in their Halls. I raise a glass to you, dear Elder.

Merry Part until we meet again. With love and blessings,

stewarts' passing
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 16:17:06 (EST)

i died from the mineral and became a plant;
i died from the plant andreappeared in an animal;
i died from the amimal and became a man
wherefore then should i fear?
when did i grow less by dying?
next time i shall die from the man that i may grow the wings of angels.
from the angel, too, i must seek advance;
all things perish save his (her) face.
once more i shall wing my way above the angels;
i shall become that which entereth not the imaginations.
then let me become naught, naught, for the harp string crieth unto me,
verily unto him (her) do we return.......

For Lady Janet

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

My name is J.W. Plogger and on behalf of myself and The Nu-Abbey of Thelema, I would like to express our deep sympathy for the loss of Mr. Farrar.

It was yours and Mr. Farrars writings that started me on the path to spiritual discovery. In a world that is full of pretenders, He stood out well above the rest. I know that I will miss his works greatly.

We here at the Nu-Abbey wish you well dear Lady, and offer ourselves to you should you need anything. You may reach us at

Again, we send our love to you. Take care dear Lady. I will always remember Mr. Farrar as the one who inspired me to become the spiritual being that I am. Although I didnt know him personaly, my heart is still broken.

Love is the law, love under will.

With love and respect,

Farewell to Stewart
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 15:46:29 (EST)

When we got involved with Wicca, about 13 years ago, the first books we read about the subject were "The Witches Way" by Stewart Farrar and "Witchraft for tomorrow" by Doreen Valiente. Both authors have been our guides and mentors throughout the years. No matter how many books we read about Wicca, Doreen, Stewart and Janet were the authors we kept going back to because we respected their views and admired their books.

Both Doreen and Stewart have left this physical sphere now. We never met Doreen, but we were lucky enough to meet Stewart, Janet and Gavin in Amsterdam and participate in the ritual they did. We talked to Stewart and he signed some of his books we had taken with us. We will always remember Stewart as a wise man, with a good sense of humour. These days our thoughts are also with Janet and we wish her all the strength she needs to get through these hard times.

To a Teacher
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 14:01:39 (EST)

Merry Meet,
To Janet I share in your sorrow.
I feel I have to say thank you to both you, stewart, and Grant for helping to bring new life into modern witchcraft. Without teachers like you I would never have been able to become the person I m today. Witch craft saved me from myself. Now I'm a better person and I have a happy life and I believe that the teacheings of wicca did that for me. . As history goes Stewart is now and will always be one of the most renoun teachers of the 20h century. And for that I Thank you and wish you and wonderful journey to the Summerland. You will be deeply missed.

In Memory of a Wiccan High Priest
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 11:53:52 (EST)

I wrote this last year when a friend and HP passed the ninth wave.
I think it is fitting to pass it along now.
Stewart Farrar was one of the elders of the Craft, I wish I could have known him

In Memory of a Wiccan High Priest

A Friend, A Witch, A Wiccan Priest
To our sorrow is now deceased.
Our sorrow and sadness, Strikes to the bone.
Though our Gods have taught us, He is now home.

Our Lord has led him, Through the gate of Sea
To the Northern Land of Summer, Where Happy is he.
Embraced by our Lady, With Love in her arms.
In a land of beauty, with no sorrows or harms

There he rests, In peace, Love, and Joy.
Someday to come again, as a little girl or boy
He rests there now, as if on Summer Break.
Deciding next life, what lessons to take.

For death and life, are one and the same.
Opposite players in the exact same game.
Each unto the other, A balance to be
Like the roots and branches of a magnificent tree.

Loved and beloved by his very dear wife.
Who taught him to forget his sorrows and strife.
And the love they shared, was meant to be.
It was as deep and abiding, as the Sea.

Miss him we shall, for a friend was he.
Husband, Lover, Brother, As he intended to be.
A Guide and a Guard, a Sword and a Spear
Protecting those his heart held dear.

But reunion will come, again we will meet.
In the Land of Summer, Where Sorrows are fleet.
In Love shall we gather, and hold each other near.
Till, Someday we return with another body, in another year.

When I first learned of Stewart Farrar's passing, I found it difficult to believe: he had seemed so young and vibrant and alive in his books, I hadn't realised how many years he had been on the Earth. Although I never had the chance to see him in person, the books bearing his and Janet's name, and later Gavin's, had a profound influence on me, and on those in the covens I helped found here in Finland. His work will continue. My deepest sympathies to Janet and Gavin, who will miss him most.
Blessed Be, Kela the Wanderer

Friday, February 18, 2000 at 08:59:40 (EST)

For the past eleven days, thoughts of Stewart and his selfless work, and gentle wisdom have permiated my thoughts and feelings. He has left us so much, and will live on in and through the people who loved him and have grown through reading his words. I have thought long of Janet and Gavin, and what a difficult, sad time this must be for them. My heart and all the supporting energy that I can muster goes out to them. I met you, Janet and Gavin, in October 1997 when you came to Boston (Vinnie Russo's shop) and the following day for your lecture at the UU in West Medford, MA. Your words and strength with stay with me always. Allow me to write these words for Stewart, and also to comfort and guide you Janet and Gavin:

May you always walk in sunshine, and the God/Goddess'love around you flow, for the happiness you gave us, no one will ever know. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, a part of us went with you, the day the God/Goddess called you home. A million times we've needed you, a million times we've cried, if Love could only have saved you, you never would have died.

My thoughts, support and love are with you Janet and Gavin.

When I was little Janet and Stuart came and stayed at my house. It was not until i was older when i started really reading the books and studying closely the religion i was raised in that I fully understood what an honor and privilege it was to have been in the presense of such wonderful people.
Thank you so much. I hope your journey is a safe and pleasant one.

Until we meet again,
all my love.

The Community loses another Great Elder
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 05:16:47 (EST)

My deepest sypathy to Janet for her loss. Although my first knowledge of the Farrars was through their book, A Witches Bible Compleat, and as a Gay man I was concerned & insulted by their stand on Gay men in Witchcraft, still I used the Witches Bible to further my education and continued to read everything the Farrars wrote. I was happy to learn that they were strong enough people to apologize for their words and say they were "wrong". This made me admire these two folks more than I can put in words. The community has lost 3 important people recently, Marion Zimmer-Bradley, Doreen Valiente and now Stewart Farrar...I wonder, will there ever be other respected authors & elders like those we lost? Stewart, may The God & Goddess take care of you until you see fit to join us here in the physical world again!

My Mentor and Friend
Friday, February 18, 2000 at 02:16:47 (EST)


Thank you for your gift of mentorship via your pen. My HPS sent a copy of What Witches Do 15 yr. ago. Your book inspired me and kept the fire alive until I became of age to study with my coven. It now sits tattered and held together with ribbon. We meet in Maryland years ago and you were kind enough to sign a first edition copy of WWD for me. All of your writings sit on my shelf and are now required reading for a new generation of students.
Thank you Stewart for offering your mentorship to those who could not physically be in your presence. Your wisdom lives on.

A pleasant journey to the Summerland. Your book OMEGA shall always be my favorite. I read it nearly 17 years ago and it impressed me more than any other book I ever read.
Janet, I feel for your loss, it must be great. I shed tears when I read your tribute to your husband. The love that jumped out at me from those lines was tremendous.

Farewell and thank-you

Thank-you Stewart and Janet too for the best and truest boks and education about witchcraft and paganism since "The Alex Sanders Lectures". With all of the "fluff" and "New Age" garbage that coming out these days, I personally am grateful for your sticking to the genuiness of your works. I have learned a lot from you books, not only about Witchcraft as a practice and religion, but about pre-Christian history as well! Thank-you again. Janet and Gavin, please continue the wonderful work. To Janet: I don't know how to offer words comfort for you loss, but I hope that as time passes, your sadness will fade and the happy memories will linger. To Stewart: Good luck on your journey!

Peace be with those left behind
Thursday, February 17, 2000 at 17:01:24 (EST)

I never had the opportunity to meet this great Priest, but I found myself deeply moved by his passing. When I read the news my eyes misted, my body tingled. Later that night I lit a candle, and offered him a place to rest in his journey to the Summerland. All throuhout last week, whenever I saw the huge trees of the Pacific Northwest I was oddly reminded of him. Though his body could no longer do his work, remembering Stewart Farrar's spirit somehow made me feel like I did about those big trees. It sounds odd to say about trees, but they are like wise old grandfathers, comforting and solid. We've lost a Priest who comes along rarely, in any faith. It is strange to think of this man as mortal, but also good to be reminded. I believe Mr. Farrar is happily sitting in the lap of the Goddess, so my prayers and offerings are for Mrs.Farrar and Mr. Bone. I cannot comprehend your loss. Although it probably doesn't help much, please know that many of us are asking the Lord and Lady to look to you and bring you comfort.

It has been said that the greatest of us are those who have had an impact on other's lives. Stewart will be remembered by all who have seriously studied the Craft. By some with a sigh, a smile, and a memory. By others as a brother, a friend, a colleague. However we remember Stewart, it is a MUST that we DO remember him. I will remember him as truly a great man.

Fond Memories and Deepest Gratitude
Thursday, February 17, 2000 at 10:29:34 (EST)

Stewart had a profound influence on my life as a Witch, and on the direction that my life in the Craft has taken. Meeting him, and Janet and Gavin in Calgary, and then visiting them in Ireland was truly a turning point in my personal evolution. Stewart's wisdom, his scholarly regard for the history of Wicca and Magick, his sense of humor, his ability to play, and his willingness to fully enter into the Spirit of the Craft was truly inspirational. We have lost a treasure - and the Craft Community will not see his like for a very long time. An Elder has gone on to Summerland, and we must grieve our loss even as we must celebrate his transition ... and rejoice in the knowledge of reunion when it is our time. Blessed be, Janet and Gavin ... you are in my prayers. May the Goddess give you the strength and wisdom to carry on Stewart's work. Blessed be, Stewart, and thank you - for showing the way so clearly, and for all of your gifts of words and ideas ... they live on, and ensure the future of the Craft, for those whom the Goddess and the God have called to be their own again in this time. We will always remember you.
