Shelli H. English's Profile...
Greetings! My name is Shelli Hudson English, but usually simply sign my initials, so many now know me as just SHE.
It began with a Presbyterian Sunday School teacher when I was about five. I had made a donkey sitting on its haunches made of clay. She declared it an evil jackal (I didn't even know what a jackal was) and humiliated me in front of the entire class. The resultant fall-out ended with my grandfather in a rare act of putting his foot down, and taking charge of my Sundays instead. He was half Maori from New Zealand, and I learned practical things and gardening, I also learned something of the spirit of the world and the concept of mana, As a youngster, I never went back to a formal church, except for events such as weddings. I met people from different faiths over the years, and realized teachings from jackal demonizing biddies was not the path for me. As I grew older, various friends found spiritual paths, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism and a few became part of the Reborn movement. Nothing felt right to me, only the ancient nature concepts I learned as a kid made sense, especially when held up to ideas of science, math, and astronomy. I found myself inordinately effected by art, music, and exhibitions I had privilege to see, and these also informed my budding spirituality.
I was lead to my personal spiritual awakening in this lifetime in 1974, and though I was young, was accepted into a group - yet only stayed for a short time, just slightly longer than my "year and a day", as the circumstances and I did not meld well. However, looking back, I can now see the others as likewise young and fairly naive, much as I was, and feel better about the experience. Events are often viewed so very differently through the filters of age and the benefit of additional experience!
In late 1975 I began what has turned into a lifelong and wonder-filled quest of discovery for the essence of the Divine. And although my path has been mainly of a solitary nature, over the years I have made many friends, shared many rituals, had both raucous debates and riotous laughter; have heard master storytellers and guardians of oral histories, have even managed to tell a tale or two myself on occasion, as well as share whatever wisdom I may have to give.
In early 1982, I became an ULC ordained minister in order to be able to perform rites of passage and provide other clerical services. I have had the honor and privilege of participating in some of life's most precious and poignant moments with people, and have many treasured memories - plus a lot of great stories!
In brief, and skipping over a couple of decades, I am simply an eclectic, Goddess-loving, folk witch and if you have questions, or feel the need to get in touch, you are welcome to do so. Of course, I could - and keep saying I someday will - write my entire autobiography, but think it best to leave you here, dear reader, with a little left to mystery...
