Iím a man of many hats. When people ask me what I do for a living, Iíd like to answer that Iím a witch, because itís really my vocation, but such a provocative answer doesnít really encourage communication. I could answer writer, minister or priest, but my heart lies with education. If I didnít have the vocation of a witch, I think Iíd be teaching high school or college somewhere. My ministry is...

A lot of pagan men find it tough to be a man in Wicca. The popular misconception of Wicca, one among many, is that it is a Goddess religion only for women. Such thoughts are simply untrue. Though there are some traditions that focus on the Goddess ...

Through yoga, I first had exposure to the Eastern traditions of spirituality. At the time though, I didnít think of it as spiritual. I was looking for a form of exercise that didnít involve lifting heavy weights or spending hours on a treadmill. I ...
