Only a small amount of this special incense was ritually crafted and charged here at the Temple and, when it’s gone, it’s gone, until the next blood moon offers us the opportunity to make more. Click the link to visit the Temple’s online store to place your order while our limited supply lasts!

All profits from the sale go to support the Temple of Witchcraft, a 501(c)3 religious nonprofit.

New Masculine Mysteries Class

The Temple’s Capricorn Ministry is pleased to announce that the class Exploring Four Archetypes of Mature Masculinity is open for registration and will begin this September.

In this monthly series of six classes, we will explore four archetypes of mature masculinity. We will delve into the concepts of the King, the Warrior, the Magician, and the Lover as four elements that, when combined in due measure, produce mature men of great value. Men who can effectively serve a community. Men who can effectively serve the world.

All genders are equally welcome to join us in this exploration, as are distance students who can attend the class via Zoom online videoconferencing rather than in-person.

Please visit the class page for details and a link to the online application form.

Litha Sabbat Stone: Bumblebee Jasper

Throughout 2019, the Temple is charging different stone and crystal allies within our sabbat circles here in New Hampshire, and making them available as fundraisers for the community, along with charged crystal essences made here at the Temple’s home in Salem, NH.

Our sabbat stone for Litha is bumblebee jasper. It nurtures our creativity, motivation and confidence. It is a strong earthy stone to help clear and cleanse the way to manifestation. Here is our crystal grid charging up the crystal essence in the indirect method.

You can find all of the sabbat stones and crystal essences on the Temple Online Store and email virgo@templeofwitchcraft.org with questions.

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 will not be offered. Silver’s other scheduled classes, including Witchcraft IV and Gateway to the Goddess, have been removed from the schedule until such a time as she returns and they can be rescheduled.

Cancer Ministry matters can still be referred to cancer@templeofwitchcraft.org while general Temple matters can be addressed to info@templeofwitchcraft.org or (for administration, scheduling, or technical matters) admin@templeofwitchcraft.org.

We wish to offer our thanks and blessings to Silver for a swift and complete recovery!
