Building Empathy in These Tough Times
Date: 2012-02-06   By: Kerri Connor
Life is made up of both the good and the bad; without the bad times, we wouldn't know how to appreciate the good. But when we are experiencing a tough time, it is becoming increasingly rare to find empathy from others. Kerri Connor, author of Spells for Tough Times, explains why we need to experience both the good and the bad, and provide empathy, sympathy, and support to those around us who may be going through the same.
The Economics and Politics of Incense
Date: 2012-03-12   By: Carl F. Neal
When thinking about the world's history, the use of incense is not something that is likely to come to mind. However, incense has had a shaping role in the economies and politics of societies the world over for thousands of years. How can such a small, humble stick hold so much power? Carl F. Neal, author of Incense Magick, explains.
Inviting Fairies Into Your Garden
Date: 2012-05-28   By: Patricia Monaghan
Many people would like to invite fairies into their garden, not knowing that they may well already be there. Patricia Monaghan, a gardener, Pagan, Irish-American, and author of Magical Gardens, discusses ways these mischievous beings can be invited into the garden—or thanked if already there.
The Adventures of a Modern-Day Heretic and the Skyclad Christ
Date: 2012-06-18   By: Rev Mark Townsend
For over a decade, Mark Townsend was a priest in the Church of England. In 2007, his path both literally and figuratively changed, and he found himself a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids. But how to reconcile the Jesus of his old religion with the deities of the new one? Here Mark, author of Jesus Through Pagan Eyes, discusses a new way for Pagans and Christians alike to view Jesus.
The Beauty of Ritual
Date: 2012-10-15   By: Deborah Blake
Ritual. The very word is evocative, conjuring images of everything from mysterious robed figures sketching arcane runes in the air to joyous women dancing skyclad around a bonfire. Ritual comes in many different forms—and that’s good, because ritual is a highly personal thing, and what suits one person perfectly will leave another cold. But done correctly, it’s…well…magickal. Deborah Blake, author of the Everyday Witch series and the new book Everyday Witch Book of Rituals, discusses just why rituals are so important...and magickal.

What Are Dragons?
Date: 2012-11-19   By: Shawn MacKenzie

The Initiate's Path: A Sea of Holes?
Date: 2012-11-26   By: Thuri Calafia
Where are the holes in your Witchcraft training? Whether self-taught or coven-trained, many practitioners of Wicca and Witchcraft may find that they are still missing pieces of study, which prevents them from serving both themselves and their communities. Thuri Calafia, teacher and author of Initiate and Dedicant, explains.
The Lost Magic of Scott Cunningham
Date: 2012-11-05   By: Donald Michael Kraig
Scott Cunningham wrote numerous books sharing his explorations of magic, Wicca, and Paganism, many of which have long been guideposts for others on their journeys. In additional to the books he authored, Scott also contributed articles to Llewellyn's annual Magical Almanac. These decades-old articles have now been collected and published; here, his friend and old roommate Donald Michael Kraig discusses the beauty of Cunningham's Magical Sampler.
Crafting Reality: Using Perception to Create Change
Date: 2012-12-24   By: Michael Furie
A longstanding belief among magical practitioners is that perception creates reality, which is being proven by quantum mechanics and physics. What does that mean for our magic and our magical goals? Michael Furie, author of Spellcasting for Beginners, discusses why your perception of your own reality has a great deal of importance for your magical workings.

It seems strange, doesn't it? A patron saint of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and all other sexually fluid shades in-between. Popular opinion would have us believe that, by default, a saint would be against such liberal sexuality, but then again, just because an opinion is popular doesn't mean that it's true.
