Coptic-Hand-Bound Journals for a Cause
Order your coptic-hand-bound journal and have it sent to your door.
You see 9 inch by 6 inch, coptic-hand-bound Journals hand crafted by Jamie Black and friends. The pages on the inside are plain white paper. The unique aspects of these journals is that EVERY PAGE lies flat when opened. These particular journals are covers that were salvaged from old hard-covered books before being sent to the incinerator, where we use the covers for journals, and the pages as art projects or fire-starter for our youth programs.
The black Raven feather drawing comes from a story shared below, and all of the funds go to Wild Craft Play ‘sCool.
Cost: $47 + shipping
Given that each book cover is unique, when one goes, it is sold, as you can see, the red or yellow covers are harder to come by.

- My Journey of Raven Feather and these Journals
I am so excited, to finally be sharing these Raven Feather Journals with you. They come from a long journey, and are meant to inspire you to release through pen to paper in some way.
PTSD started showing it’s head to me in 2015. After an unexpected toxic relationship and stressful time of Masters research, I took myself on what’s called a Spiritual Drum Journey, where I went to Lower World and met the Celtic Goddess Morrigan. The Goddess of Magick and Night. She is said to be guided by 3 familiars, Ravens. When I journeyed to Morrigan, I begged for relief from the night terrors, the vivid day dreams that left me paralyzed in a physical fear that haunted me for months.
In the journey, Morrigan said to me “When you find the black Raven feather, you will let go.”
As you can imagine, I hunted through the forest for months, anxiously seeking a black raven feather.
The black painted feather on the image of the grey journal is what was handed to me one afternoon by 7 year old Brooke. A very magical young person who was wise beyond her years, bold and quite the artist. When she handed me the journal, I was speechless, and nearly quit breathing. I quickly asked her to write a poem to go inside the journal. That poem is on the top of the written text.
As she worked on the poem, I had to step outside and catch my breath, I had to stay strong while hosting the program, and I was… in a daze. Later that night, I cried for hours, and finally let go, and the nightmares stopped, the fear left my body, and I finally began to feel whole.
I have been doing Spiritual Drum Journeys for over 10 years now and has become a regular practice I use for me, and for others to heal. If you want to know more, I am starting a practice in person and online soon… stay tuned.
I am so so grateful for Brooke and her brave and wild spirit. And for these journals that are now coming into completion.

Wild Craft Play The Game, has brought wild wonderment to hundreds of children, youth and adults since 2008. It has been played with groups of 16 or more children, ages 8 and up, designed for at least 8 weeks of engagement or more.
Initially this program was created with children, for children, to re-connect them with the Earth, now it is a multi-disciplinary experience that teaches about anti-bullying, as well as reaches all of the BC core competencies and is a model designed to meet some of the BC curriculum, namely, Grades 3, 4 and 5; physical and health education, math, financial literacy, science, socials, english, drama, environmental education, art and music. For anyone who facilitates the game, one of the core intentions is to help children play more gently on the Earth, making decisions for the Earth, and for our future.
When this book is published, it will become an educational resource to any adult who works with groups of children ages 8 and up. Join the movement. Become a Wild Craft Play Facilitator.
