So here is a bit of a puzzle.
I wrote an autobiographical book about finding my place in Czechia through connecting with the magic of the land. It was called Chasing the Shaman and it continues to do rather well for such a book – a sort of magic/Earth energies/autobiography thing. What started everything to kick into place was my discovery of a mysterious shaman operating in plain sight right here down my street. His wonderful stone arrangements lay for months yet no one disturbed them and his continual visits were documented with gifts of tobacco and new stones.
I never did find out who he was and his activities stopped earlier this year. But mine didn’t. He had led me on a journey I had not anticipated nor expected into the Slavic Deities and customs here in Czechia and beyond. I started mapping Earth energy lines with my dowsing rods, visiting magical places with rumors of dragons and imaging myself as Perun – God of Thunder and Veles – God of the Underworld. I made relationships with trees and with the Goddess in nature discovering a whole new world right on my doorstep – and a whole new me to boot. I put this into a new book that I called Chasing Dragons in Moravia. The cover of the book features a Czech stone circle called Karluv Stul (King’s Table). I don’t know if it were my timing but this book officially bombed. I think two people have purchased it. The question is why?
Anyway, I’m now engaged in a furtherance of the activities in that book and working the Winter and Spring with Morana and Vesna – two Slavic Goddesses that represent death and winter, and fertility and spring. I am combining that with working under a Slavic shaman out of the US that I discovered and her moon work. This had me build my Morana effigy on the Winter Solstice, for example. The plan is for a third book called – yes – Chasing the Goddess. Meanwhile, I am documenting some of the work here as well.
Anyway, please do give the books a look. Alan Richardson, who did read Chasing Dragons in Moravia had this to say…
Vasey’s new book continues to bring insights and his personal experience of a whole field of esotericism that is both ancient to the larger world, but completely new to me. I had never heard of Perun and Veles before, yet I was enthralled by his invocations of both, and his honest responses when – as often happens in this kind of Work – nothing seems to happen. When in fact, as time reveals, everything was always happening.

Diane – very welcome!
I watched the video. Thank you for referring it. The male and female lines make complete sense; one cannot survive without the other. This led me to “Ley Lines” by Danny Sullivan, which I’ll pick up in the new year. This is an intriguing subject,, one I’ve indulged in before, but not deeply. Thank you for reintroducing it to me.
Diane – I recommend you look up Hamish Wilson’s books (often with Paul Broadhurst). Also take a look at them at work in this video – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_0l-IXU9S4

Sue – He took the stones away when he finished whatever he was up to. However, I did dowse at the time and although there was energy aligned with the stones, it didn’t extend beyond them. I will go back to where they were and have another go…. Thanks
The stone arrangements made me wonder if there is any relationship between them and the way the energies run straight through the churches and curve around the castle? Might be worth a look,,.

I started reading this earlier today and when I got to “relationships with trees”, I had to stop.
In the past eight hours, I’ve been thinking about this phrase and my relationships with trees. I’ve always had them, but I’ve never called it a relationship before. Yet, when I’ve talked about my garden and the trees and other plants I’ve known, I tell the stories of how we met. A garden is a book of many chapters and many friends.
I came back this evening to finish reading. I’ve heard of lay lines and energy lines, but I’ve never considered dowsing for them. I’ll have to read more about this. There are several lines that run through Nova Scotia.
