let me begin by saying that MISTI-Con 2013 was incredible. It was a privilege to attend this convention, and it was the most fun I have ever had at a Harry Potter convention. I was never more relaxed, or happier, during a convention. I am in a good place, spiritually and emotionally, at this point in my life, which no doubt had a lot to do with how joyful I was during MISTI 13, but it was also the kind of event I find particularly appealing.
I am happy to say that there will be another MISTI in 2015, and I shall definitely be returning to New Hampshire then!

Ah yes, my lecture was filmed!
Take a look here to see it: Occlumency, The Art of Meditation.
In other news, Blessed: How to Be a Joyful Mystic will be on amazon soon… There was a small delay due to a minor problem with the cover (the title was too close to the edge). I have alas had to make Ben’s beautiful illustration a little smaller as a result, but I have received a copy of the revised version, and it still looks wonderful.
As soon as it is on amazon, I shall let you know. In the meantime, it is available in my bookstore, should you wish to acquire a copy.
I have other exciting news for you! I have decided to organize my own small convention dedicated to the introverts of the Harry Potter fandom… This event will take place in 2016, and will be called Quietus. I already have a website for it: Quietus 2016. The convention will be very intimate and communal, without too many logistics. There will be plenty of time to eat and chat, no trying to juggle many activities… It will be laid back and mystical. Please visit the website for more information! I shall be sharing all the news concerning this project over there. I shall do my very best to make it a special gathering for quiet fans.
So, in the coming years I shall be publishing more books, preparing for MISTI-Con 2015, and organizing Quietus 2016 -all good things 🙂 Leaky 14 is not in the cards… I shall prefer devoting myself to the projects I have just listed above.
