Need to know

I keep hearing that he passed and when I tried to find info online about it... I found this posting...which only confirms the rumor. No one has told me what happened though. Perhaps you could email me and let me know? I am awaiting to hear back from my people as well. He was a very good, amazing man. My heart is hurting.

This is Jack's wife, Linda Darkhand. (I changed my name on Beltaine of 2007.) Yes, unfortunately, the rumors are true. He had what we think was a massive heart attack in the shower last night. We will know for sure tomorrow. Celia will be here tomorrow. She is currently en route.

He was deeply loved by his family and will be greatly missed. The void in our lives is immeasurable.

My email is Linda_D47@yahoo.com

Fwd: Jack Darkhand, viva July 24, 1956 to March 22, 2009. May his magic live on!

(Permanent Link)

It is with deep sadness that I have to share that Pagan priest Jack Darkhand passed away early this morning, March 22, 2009 of a heart attack. He has been living in Seattle with his wife Linda Young and their two children. Many of you may remember Jack from his days at Ancient Ways - strutting around in the sun, peddling his Sweet Liquid Trouble damiana cordial, and teaching Magick classes with his friend Daniel Alvin.

As you can imagine, his wife and family is in shock. I'm good friends with Jack's sister Celia and she's on her way to Seattle now. Jack and Linda have two young children, Gabby age 3 and Sarah age 5. Celia is arranging a support fund for their immediate needs, and if you would like to contribute any amount or learn about the memorial service in Seattle, please contact Celia at:


I'm attaching a photo of Jack, please keep him in your prayers that he has a swift, smooth and safe transition through the Bardo on to his next adventure. May he be guided and guarded by his allies and spirit helpers. And may his karma be complete so he can learn new things in his next incarnation.

Please share and distribute widely to your Pagan communities so Jack's life and spirit can live on.

Blessed Be,

Laurie, thank you for jarring my memory of the exciting journey through the bardo. I am a friend of Celia in her Beloved Moab, Ut and have offered this to her community here in Moab and at large and offer the same for Jack's communities.

Tuesday March 24th at 7pm join me in a shared practice for Jack and his family. Lets all get together & generate some energy to help Jack on his journey!

In the Tibetan tradition there is an initial 3 day period followed by a 49 day period of prayers whilst the departed navigates the Bardo before rebirth. My intention is to spend time each day being present to Jack and also for Linda, Gabby & Sarah. The family. More on the Bardo....http://www.spiritualtravel.org/OBE/afterdeath.html

For those unfamiliar of metta, it is prayer, it is sending Loving kindness to Jack. It is good medicine.
Saying in whatever way feels to be your truth
may you be joyful
may you be well
may you peaceful
may you be free...sending this prayer to Jack & his girls.

49 days from Tuesday is Tuesday May 12th, on the coat tails of a waning full moon.(check my work but I think I'm correct)
We are all over this sacred earth and the times are to.

I chose 7am and 7pm in US (mtn time/Moab time).

Many blessings and love,

I too am a friend of Jack's. I will be joining you in the seven pm prayer & will pass it along.

Also, for those of you who are not aware, Linda has set up a blog for people to comment on: http://jackdarkhand.blogspot.com

I encourage everyone to use it, as, sadly, with the girls being so young, there will come a time they will not remember much of their father. If nothing else, it is my wish for them that they truly understand what an amazing man their father was.

I am deeply, deeply saddened by his loss, and feel as if someone has ripped out my core. It is hard to believe the world is right without Jack in it.

Hey folks! Celia here, Jack's biological youngest sister. Thanks for all the well wishes and words and stories, keep them coming! I am excited to share stories with you in the coming days and weeks, here, on jackdarkhand.blogspot.com and there will be a guest book soon via the funeral home. There will be a memorial in the near future in the Santa Cruz, CA area as you may know. There is also a memorial scheduled for WA state on 04/04/09. More details to follow on that.

Finally I will post more info tomorrow on two options of donations in lieu of flowers.

For those who knew my brother's power, intensity, joy, wonder and immense love, you know that he was quite a being. I ask you now to help me in summoning all the support and love you have available to shower on Linda his wife and his two girls, Sarah and Gabby.

Many blessings,

Very sad news. I didn't work with Jack directly while he was here at AOL, but he always had a very positive outlook and very good energy, and was always good for an interesting and energetic conversation. He will be missed. :( That Hawaiian shirt story so totally sounds like something he'd do. RIP Jack.

I, too, worked with Jack at AOL and I loved how he was always game for a drink, a conversation or a laugh. And so dedicated in everything that he did. My thoughts are with you!

information on Jack's memorial services

(Permanent Link)

Here is the information on Jack's passing and the two services that are scheduled. Also below is information on how to help Jack's wife Linda and little girls Sarah and Gabby, who are in need of support at this time.

I encourage you all to celebrate Jack's life in all the delightfully juicy ways he would have wanted us to, and to please forward this to any and all who might want to know this information. I am here in WA and hope to also make the Santa Cruz ritual if possible.

I also ask you to pray (as Jack would say) "to the deity of your liking" for my sister in law. She needs your love and prayers and thoughts right now. Personally my prayer is a prayer of METTA, and for her to stay grounded and patient as well as safe, healthy, peaceful and happy.

In addition to Linda, Sarah and Gabby, Jack's biological family includes my older sisters Miriam and Toni and our father Joe Alario, and Miriam's daughter Nova. My dad will be celebrating his 83rd birthday the day after Jack's memorial. Please keep us in your thoughts as well.

I'm here with Linda now, please feel free to contact me if you would like to!

Jack's youngest sister Celia

He was a well known & proud Pagan and astrologer, especially in the Santa Cruz, CA area. He is survived by his loving wife, Linda Darkhand, and his children, Sarah Darkhand, age 5 and Gabby Darkhand, age 3.

Нужен дельный совет

Здравствуйте дорогие господа

Если до перестройки не болтали,что есть [url=http://www.superrike.ru]проститутки[/url] и информация была не сильно распространена, но все равно имела место, то в 90-е годы уровень услуги [url=http://www.superrike.ru/devochki/statya-5]sex[/url] резко начал расти. По многим источникам только в одной Москве количество предложений [url=http://www.superrike.ru/devochki/statya-1]знакомства[/url] увелчилось до 30 тысяч, а во всей России число этих представительниц достигло 180 тысяч. По данным других источников 130 тысяч проституток насчитывали только в Москве. Если сравнить с Бельгией,то это достаточно большие цифры, даже если не брать во внимание размеры территории. В Великобритании, например,услуги [url=http://www.superrike.ru/devochki/statya-6]досуг[/url] насчитывали всего 90 тысяч, во Франции чуть больше – 95 тысяч, в Германии – 80 тысяч.

Если раньше практически ничего не слышали о мужской проституции, это было вообще неприемлемо, то в 1990-е годы уже появляются не только слухи об этом, но и стало нормальным,что [url=http://www.superrike.ru/devochki/statya-4]транссексуалы москвы[/url] предлагают свои услуги [url=http://www.superrike.ru]русдосуг[/url],ну и вообще начинает развиваться данное направление.

С уважением ваш друг Матвей
