The Spiritual Wisdom of Harry Potter?
Date: 2007-07-16   By: Christopher Penczak
With the seventh and final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling, being released soon, much interest is growing in the media and public concerning magick, witchcraft and wizardry. With the huge buzz brewing, one has to wonder: how real, how accurate, is the magick being presented in the Harry Potter series?
The Top Three Beltane Maypole Problems...And How to Fix Them
Date: 2008-05-26   By: Bronwen Forbes
It’s Beltane! Raise the maypole! Well, the maypole is effective and fun, but apparently it’s not so simple. Bronwen Forbes suggests the three biggest problems--and their solutions--with the maypole.
The Urban Pagan
Date: 2005-01-24   By: Thomas Polkinghorne
There is a tendency among modern Pagans - many of whom live in cities - to revere the wilderness as a source of magical power and dismiss the cities in which they live as spiritually dead places. The city is simply a place where they live and work, ...
The Wiccan Rede and the Art of Persuasion
Date: 2007-03-26   By: Arcane Static
The Wiccan Rede has the distinction of being a core tenet of the faith. The origin of this creed and its rhetorical influence are explored in an academic capacity by Arcane Static, which can help you to better understand the fundamentals of this spiritual movement.
The Witch and the Wand: Dryads and Gesture in Magic
Date: 2015-12-07   By: Alferian Gwydion MacLir
The wand is one of the witch's most versatile tools, adding great power to any magic. Why are wands so powerful? How can we make them more powerful? Professional wandmaker and author of The Witch's Wand and Wandlore, Alferian Gwydion MacLir, explains.
The Witch Mania of King James I
Date: 2011-04-25   By: Donald Tyson
King James I of England came to be one of the more prominent prosecutors of "witch mania" beginning in Scotland and Denmark in 1590. Believing that persecuting witches under the law would grant him protection from their "black magick," James took on a great role in the interrogations and prosecution. His book, Demonology, was written with the aim to "educate" others on the evils of witchcraft and the supernatural. While being a difficult subject matter for many to broach, Donald Tyson has revisited this important work and made it approachable and understandable as The Demonology of King James I.
The Witch's Broom: Magic for Everyone
Date: 2014-04-07   By: Deborah Blake
Everyone knows that brooms and witches go together. And while not every witch has a cat (or a funny-looking hat, for that matter), most of us own a broom. But how many of us actually use them for our magical work? Deborah Blake, author of The Witch's Broom, explains a few of the many magical uses for the humble broom.

Traditional Lughnasadh with a Modern Twist
Date: 2015-06-22   By: Melanie Marquis
As one of three annual harvest celebrations marked in the Witch's sabbat cycle, Lughnasadh doesn't seem like much of a stand-out. Unless you're tending crops on a daily basis, you're not very likely to be especially filled with excitement over the thought of the first harvest, as opposed to the second or third harvest. Melanie Marquis, author of the new Lughnasadh in Llewellyn's Sabbat Series, offers fun ways to make your Lughnasadh celebrations more modern.
Traveling Deeper with the Wheel of the Year
Date: 2013-07-08   By: Jane Meredith
We are all familiar with the Wheel of the Year and its celebrations. But what if we take a deeper look at the Wheel and the lessons it offers, seeing not just eight festivals of celebration, but a parallel of the waxing and waning of our lives? Jane Meredith, author of Rituals of Celebration, discusses what happens when we venture into the lessons of the Wheel of the Year and embrace the importance of loss as much as we do the importance of success.

Today's world offers us many opportunities to create and live in stress; even though it has been many thousands of years since we have had to fear attack from wild animals, modern man has his fight-or-flight system turned on most days, and with no idea how to turn it off. Work, relationships, schedules, kids, media, and much more assist in... read this article
