This website is a result of my studies on the subjects of witchcraft, Wicca, the occult, the Goddess, and the modern neo-Pagan movement.
There's a nuts-and-bolts overview of witchcraft here.
It was written by Gerina Dunwich (and is used by permission), and it's the best down-to-earth explanation of the "basics" that I've ever seen. A dissertation on basic Wiccan beliefs is here.

There aren't any spells (except the

And there's an outline of a brief
ritual for Samhain.
Links to other pages in this site are direct links; links to outside places (off-site pages) will open up a new window. This means that a link to an outside webpage will activate your pop-up blocker; you can get around this by holding the "Ctrl" key when you click on the link.
Some of the things I say here are controversial. Please understand that I'm not trying to start any debates, although you may feel free to
email me with your comments and views.
And by the way, I do NOT insist that you be open-minded when you visit my site (as some Pagan webmasters do)! It's a free country.
There is some
"But You Didn't"
"A True Story"
may bring a tear to your eye. But there are no virtual snowflakes flying around on the pages, and you aren't going to be invited to adopt a virtual pet, and your cursor won't turn into a fairy.
I'll occasionally recommend a book, or a store, or a CD, or an occult supplier. There's only one reason that I'll ever recommend that you spend money somewhere, and that's because I believe in that merchant or product. I don't get monetary kickbacks from anybody. There are no "paid endorsements." And I don't sell anything on my website; it is completely non-commercial (not that I have anything against commerce).
Any link on my site that takes you to a page that has "embedded music" will warn you about it ("Warning: This page plays music"). I hate surprises, and I assume you do too. Especially if you're sitting at your desk, and you want people to think you're working.
I've paid money to Yahoo (my web host) so that you don't get those annoying pop-up ads.
The opinions expressed on this website are not necessarily those of the Pagan community in general.
NOTE (June 2018): After many years and after much reflection, and having participated in Wicca and other religions, I am now a confirmed atheist. I do not believe in gods, goddesses, demons, magic spells, an afterlife, Bigfoot, leprechauns, fairies, or the Loch Ness monster. I will continue to maintain this website because it is the result of countless hours of work and research into the phenomenon of Wicca and Neopaganism. For those of you who consider yourselves to be witches, I hope you find it to be an inspiration.
