Peter is invited by Kiana Love to a gathering called ‘Starwood’. He has never encountered anything like this before, and it triggers a remembrance ….
2002 – The Call to Adventure
Guardian of the Goddesses
The Faerytale Brigade
Location – New York City
Peter and James are in New York City. They have shared many adventures, yet Peter must leave. It is a life-or-death situation for him, as he must follow the Call to Adventure or be lost in the madness of his being. He promises James he will find and return with the deeper magics.
Narrative (1st person, Peter-as-memoir) – ‘Leaving NYC was difficult for me only because of James. Finding a being that could actually relate to my universe was a pearl in the desert. We shared a special bond, a brotherhood of Light which defined the space between.
In the jungles of Costa Rica, the Mother Vine Ayahuasca comes to Peter, initiating and remembering him with the wisdom of the plant deva. Such is a deeply cooling influence, in which he tastes the edges of the Homelands once more.
Peter is led to Kauai, where he receives deep initiations from the Goddess, most notably the incentive to track his journey across the realms, using his photos as a means of anchoring his shape into the Worlds.
2003 – Return to the Mother
This is Peter’s first encounter with the magician’s of the Worlds who are to be witnessed in his journey deeper into the Mythica. It is the first appearance of Carl Bridge, Jeff & Abby McBride, Oberon and Morning-Glory Ravenheart, Robin, and many others.
Here, Peter goes through multiple transformations involving the Pan archetype and makes alliance with Carl Bridge and the Gorilla King, both of whom are strong with the element of Earth.
Peter finds his way to the City of Dreams once more, here to re-encounter Vogel and the magicians of the Fire Circle in the shifting realms of the dreamsand. The phoenix glyph is symbolic everywhere, as Peter feels it’s totemic energy moving through him through the underlands of the Mythica.
In whic Peter meets the ally in the form of Debi LeFaye, a fellow avatar of faerie in which he finds kinship and resonance, a sense of harmony amongst the shifting tones of the Incarnate. Here, he gets down on one knee and asks to be trained in the ancient ways. She accepts, and opens the Academy of the Ancient Arts.
