So, as I’ve mentioned, I’ve been attending church, recently. While I didn’t think I’d actively dislike it, I will admit that I was surprised to find that I actually enjoy it, enough that I’ve gone weekly for the last five weeks.

I would not necessarily call myself any form of Christian, but I did mention that I’m intrigued by the idea of Christian witchcraft. So, I set out to find some research material.

Enter: The Path of a Christian Witch by Adelina St. Clair

The Overall Takaway: I would rate this book a 4/5 and recommend it to those interested in the niche faiths within the niche faiths. Continue reading “Book Review: The Path of a Christian Witch by Adelina St. Clair”

A Witch's Beginnings, part three

Part One.
Part Two.

Wicca has a “harm none” edict which felt stifling to me in my late teens and early twenties. Not that “harm none” isn’t a solid principle to adhere to, but so many of the resources I found at the time promoted a sort of spiritual altruism that I just couldn’t get on board with. I was young and angry and oh-so tired of being told that was wrong. Continue reading “A Witch's Beginnings, part three”

A Witch's Beginnings, part 1

In the past, I’ve spoken vaguely about how I came to Wicca, which shifted to Paganism, which has turned into agnostic witchcraft, which continues to shift as I continue to search. But, I haven’t spoken about where I was prior to that, or really delved into the meat of the journey which brought me to where I am now.

Let’s talk about it. Admittedly, part of my hope in writing this out is to gain some clarity for myself. My spirituality is in a constant state of flux. Looking back at where I’ve been has often helped me figure out where I’m going. Continue reading “A Witch's Beginnings, part 1”

Finding Mentors (in strange places)

This post is inspired by the wonderful Hestia’s Servant and a post she made some time ago about a lack of elders and teachers in the Pagan community. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the people I have learned from and those I’ve been seeking out for assistance, and I’m here today to echo her sentiments.
