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.

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.
Seasons of Witchery
Date: 2012-06-11   By: Ellen Dugan

Date: 2012-05-28   By: Patricia Monaghan

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.
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.

On Wings Everywhere Ascending: The Relevance of Dragons in the Modern World
Date: 2011-09-26   By: Shawn MacKenzie
In the simpler times of long ago, our ancestors struck flint to tinder and, with deer on the spit and wolf cubs at their feet, watched shadow monsters dance across cave walls. They knew Dragons intimately and held them close. How could they not? With primordial majesty, Dragons ruled earth, sea, and sky. They were reminders of the danger beyond the firelight, the world beyond comprehension. They were Awe personified, revered for their wisdom and at-one-ment with the Universe, dreaded for their strength and elemental energy. But what about the importance of Dragons in today's society? Shawn MacKenzie, author of The Dragon-Keeper's Handbook, explains just how truly relevant Dragons are to us.

Do you recall the first time you cast a solitary spell? A real spell. Do you remember the moment when you took power into your own hands, lit flickering candles, burned tendrils of incense, called to the corners, created sacred space, and invoked your intention to manifest in the universe? It was memorable, wasn't it? Like a teenager fumbling... read this article
