  • The Matter Of Faith - RuneWolf [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Faith, simply put, is trust.Some Pagans have a negative reaction to the entire concept of faith, because it has become synonymous in our culture with one particular brand of faith: Christian. But I submit that, whether one ... Posted: November 11th. 2001   Views: 3,798   - [ Full Article ]

  • Beyond 101 - RuneWolf [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Speaking only for myself, I'm not so sure that there really is anything beyond "Wicca 101." As well as being a Witch, I am in recovery and hold a black belt in ju jitsu. In both recovery and the martial arts, it is a truism ... Posted: October 14th. 2001   Views: 4,614   - [ Full Article ]

  • Kuan Yin And The Year Of The Snake - Sia@FullCircle [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Some Pagans may have seen this coming. Not me. This was already one of the most difficult years of my life; it can't, I thought, get any worse then this. And then, horribly, and for all of us, it did.For me this troubled y ... Posted: September 23rd. 2001   Views: 15,795   - [ Full Article ]

  • Abortion: A Responsible Choice - Maewyn

    I love reading bumper stickers, and they're all over the cars around my college campus. Every car has a university sticker on it somewhere (even if it's only the parking permit), and I exult over the occasional stickers that say " ...

  • Pagans and Abortion - Mino [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Abortion is an issue that challenges the very foundation of most religious belief systems, including Paganism. Since the subject is about Pagans, I will attempt to restrict my comments here to what I consider the 'Pagan' view. I d ... Posted: September 21st. 2001   Views: 4,761   - [ Full Article ]

  • Being Pagan in a 'Mundane' World - Jenett

    For me, the question of how to be a Pagan in a mundane world is really a question of mindset. I have a great deal of control over this. I may not easily be able to control the details of the day or the month or the year, but I def ... Posted: September 21st. 2001   Views: 4,711   - [ Full Article ]

  • Magick Happens - RuneWolf [Witchvox Sponsor]

    In 1993 I got sober. Prior to that event, my spiritual life was vague, to say the least. I left the Methodist Church in my mid-teens, not in anger but rather in frustration at what I would now characterize as a growing secularizat ...

  • Sacred Space - Maewyn

    Well, the sacredness of a space depends on the space itself. If you're out in the woods, you probably don't need to consecrate rocks and trees and the forest floor; Nature has already made it more sacred than you can. If you're mo ...

  • Acceptance: It's Getting Better All the Time - Ginger Strivelli

    Horror tales of Witches coming out of the broom closet to all sorts of rejection, discrimination, and prejudice are sowed and harvested, across the Internet, like the crops that spill from Mother Nature's cornucopia. But they are ... Posted: July 14th. 2001   Views: 5,743   - [ Full Article ]

  • What is an Elder? - Sunfell

    If you look around the stacks of Pagan books available in the bookstores and metaphysical shops, you might rightfully believe that the majority of the Pagan and Wiccan religion consists of newcomers. Books with '101', 'Beginner', ... Posted: July 14th. 2001   Views: 4,468   - [ Full Article ]

  • Trancework and Journeying - RuneWolf [Witchvox Sponsor]

    I came to Paganism directly through the practice of "core shamanism, " so trancework was a foundation stone of my spiritual practice even before I consciously thought of myself as Pagan, and it remains so to this day. It is the th ... Posted: June 9th. 2001   Views: 5,143   - [ Full Article ]

  • Are The Gods Real? - Ginger Strivelli

    Well of course, They are! Though, I realize some people doubt it... so, lets take a walk and discuss it...Let's go outside... and walk, it's a beautiful day, after all.Feel that sunshine on your face! Doesn't it fe ... Posted: May 20th. 2001   Views: 7,038   - [ Full Article ]

  • Books, Books and More Books - Moonspider [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Books, one of my favorite topics, particularly since they're the backbone of how I make my living. I've read wonderful books, I've read ones that weren't worth the paper they were printed on. Unfortunately, the latter seems to be ... Posted: May 20th. 2001   Views: 5,730   - [ Full Article ]

  • Tiamet the Tool-man's Tailor - Mino [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Tools and skills go (literally) hand-in-hand. The myth of Lleu and Gwydion from Welsh Lore shows that skills are not always the product of working with tools. Skills are more often-than-not the prerequisite of obtaining the tools ... Posted: April 14th. 2001   Views: 4,833   - [ Full Article ]

  • To Initiate or Not To Initiate - That Is The Question - RuneWolf [Witchvox Sponsor]

    I'm afraid I must admit that I am a confirmed fence-sitter when it comes to Initiation. When I began my journey, I encountered a lot of "either/or" thinking in the community. If you weren't "properly" Initiated, you just weren't a ... Posted: February 11th. 2001   Views: 5,926   - [ Full Article ]

    Initiation: Latin: Initaire- initial- To begin, get going, start, initialize.Initiation is a subject of deep discussion and occasional confusion in the Pagan community. In this essay, I will compare and contrast the differ ... Posted: February 11th. 2001   Views: 5,009   - [ Full Article ]

  • Enter the Void - Moonspider [Witchvox Sponsor]

  • Once a Witch, Always a Witch - RuneWolf [Witchvox Sponsor]

    I've heard it said "Once a Witch, always a Witch, " meaning that if we were a Witch in a previous life, we are more or less destined to be a Witch in this one. I don't know if that's specifically true in my case, but it might expl ... Posted: January 14th. 2001   Views: 7,971   - [ Full Article ]

  • Through The Back Door - Moonspider [Witchvox Sponsor]

    I came in through the back door. I've never done anything typically, that just isn't my way. I always knew I was a Witch, I knew it was inside me, coursing through my veins. I just didn't know how to release it.Let's start ... Posted: January 14th. 2001   Views: 6,037   - [ Full Article ]

  • Finding The Craft - Sunfell

    The question is innocent enough: "How did you find your Pagan Path?" Sort of like the Christian equivalent, "How did you find Christ?" Both are simple questions, but for me, at least- the explainable answer is not easy. Heck, it w ... Posted: January 14th. 2001   Views: 5,503   - [ Full Article ]

  • Can you be Christian and Pagan? - Sunfell

    Can one be both a Pagan and a Christian? Are the paths mutually exclusive, or can they be recombined in harmony? And what flavor of Christianity is compatible with Paganism? Should this new growth be encouraged? I hope to answer t ... Posted: December 10th. 2000   Views: 11,990   - [ Full Article ]

  • Is Your Sex Life Really Pagan? - Sunfell

    Before I get into the meat of this essay, I want to make sure you're nice and comfy. I am about to shinny up and proudly perch on the highest, most outlying and controversial branch of sexuality there is, and I want you to be prep ...

  • Merging Christianity Into Paganism - Mino [Witchvox Sponsor]

    One can only speak 'the truth' from the perspective of experience. I do not quote anyone in particular, yet I quote the entire world as I know it: it's people, it's gods and everything that defines life. The religious world of tod ...

  • Apples and Oranges - Moonspider [Witchvox Sponsor]

    Christian witch? Christopagan? Episcopagan? In a word, no. It simply does not compute, the two are diametrically opposed. Our American society is not conducive to having these blended. Our nation is just simply too young. In the b ... Posted: December 10th. 2000   Views: 5,488   - [ Full Article ]

  • Never the Twain Shall Meet - Gwen Gardner

    As I read the essay question for this month I was surprised. I had asked this question of my teacher just hours before. As someone new to Montana, I had discovered a peculiar phenomenon among the "Pagans" here, something that I ha ... Posted: December 10th. 2000   Views: 5,473   - [ Full Article ]
