Born with “the veil” (a localized term for the second sight) in 1963 in Winchester Virginia, an area located in the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia that is rife with folklore, ghost tales, folk magic and lore. His father was part Lakota Native American and his culture is Southern and Appalachian. His mother was born in a slave quarter on a plantation called “The Hollingsworth Place” in 1934 where a freed slave affectionately known as “Miss Granny” was both her midwife and spiritual God-Mother. All of these distinctive elements formed the foundations of his cultural spirituality and magical practices as a teacher of “veil” practices that focus on spirit work and conjure.
