The Temple of Witchcraft offers:
Spirit, Community, Education
in Salem, NH and online.

Co-founded by Christopher Penczak, Steve Kenson, and Adam Sartwell, the Temple of Witchcraft started in 1998 as a system of magickal training and personal development, and eventually developed into a formal tradition of Witchcraft.

Now, as an outgrowth of the work of students, initiates, and graduates of the programs, the Temple of Witchcraft has evolved into an organization based on traditions of modern magick, Witchcraft, and neopaganism.

Change Without, Change Within

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle Recently I read something whose author was taking a practitioner to task for doing “inner work” when the world so obviously needed “outer work.” The critique was a call against self-development and personal healing in favor of the community and the world. While I understand the sentiment, it also flies in the face of all that I know as an occultist and Witch. The idea was that being self-focused is Read More...


Silver Lyons on Medical Leave

The Temple of Witchcraft community asks for energetic and healing support for High Priestess and Cancer Lead Minister Silver Lyons, who is on a medical leave from her responsibilities from the Temple at this time as she recovers from surgery. Due to Silver’s leave of absence, we will be holding space for the Temple’s Women’s Circle to gather in community on their scheduled dates, with the assistance of a Temple volunteer, but the scheduled Women’s Circle rituals Read More...

We at the Temple of Witchcraft have been looking for ways to do outreach so our distant members can feel connected to the greater work of the Temple.

There are times when it seems like the Universe is conspiring against us. That no matter what we do, the truth seems to stay hidden underground. Right now, the opposite is happening: The Universe seems to be conspiring for the truth to come out, out from the hidden place of shadows for everyone to see and feel. So let's take a deeper look at what is going on right now. The Asteroid Pallas (intelligence, justice, truth) is Read More...

Seeking Mastery

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle "Mastery" is such a tricky word. Does anyone ever truly master anything? Is there not always room for improvement? Is there not always some force beyond your control? While many would define mastery as control over or superiority over another, when we are talking about true mastery, we mean control over the self and superiority to what you once were. Your only rival is the work you did yesterday, as Read More...
