  • 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: 5,735   - [ 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: 4,463   - [ 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: 5,133   - [ 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: 5,719   - [ 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: 4,822   - [ 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: 5,914   - [ Full Article ]

  • 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: 7,961   - [ 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: 6,023   - [ 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: 5,491   - [ 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: 11,981   - [ Full Article ]

  • Is Your Sex Life Really Pagan? - Sunfell

  • 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.

  • I Remember My Roots - Morgan Tzaddi [Witchvox Sponsor]

    I tread a fine line I think. Between adulthood and childhood, I mean. I'm 22 years old so I've been an adult for four years by society's standards. I've been a Witch for six years.
