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.

Date: 2010-12-13   By: Amber K and Azrael Arynn K
Witches are different, and not just because we celebrate the Goddess and the Horned God under the full moon. The true Witch lives in a world apart from mainstream consciousness, thinks and perceives and feels differently about herself and the universe.

As we seek to understand what lies before us, Amber K and Azrael Arynn K, authors of the new book How to Become a Witch, identify nine major challenges facing those who have chosen the path of Witchcraft.
The Healing of the Celtic Tree Calendar
Date: 2010-11-08   By: Sharlyn Hidalgo
Samhain is a hinge that marks the end of autumn and the beginning of winter. This is a time when the veil between the worlds is most thin, and one can make contact with the spirits of their loved one and their ancestors. The Celts believed that communication with their relatives and friends and animals that had crossed over provided needed love, guidance, and encouragement. For them, this was also a time to give gratitude and count one’s blessings. Sharlyn Hidalgo, author of The Healing Power of Trees, discusses the healing power of the Celtic Tree Calendar, especially at this time when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest.
