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.

Being In Love with Our Wounds

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle Sometimes we are not ready to change. We think we are. We say we are. But when the opportunity comes, we either recoil from true change or play along and get mad when it doesn’t work perfectly and then double down on whatever we are seeking to change, becoming even more intractable. We have all done it. The trick is in not doing it again. While there are the certain Read More...

Witchcraft I Online Registration to Close Early

Due to the unusually high volume of applications for the March 2021 session, exceeding the number of positions in the class, we are planning to close registration for the online session of Witchcraft I: The Inner Temple earlier this year, by the end of November 2020, to give us time to process all of the applications. We limit the number of people in this already very large class because there is required monthly homework where each student Read More...

The Bends

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle “I’m pretty advanced magickally. I don’t need to do that anymore.” Oh really? I get it. I’ve been there before myself, but there is a reason why certain techniques remain, why certain core practices are, well, core. But in the days of quick fixes and shortcuts, we can be oblivious to both why this is true and what the consequences are when we forget. And then we wonder why we Read More...

Right now we have a big trine in fire that can create a guiding light. This light can take you down memory lane to forgotten important keys and portals of understanding. The trine of fire is created by Vesta (devotion, priest, priestess) in Leo, the south node (karma, the past) in Sagittarius and Mars (drive, will) and Lilith Black Moon in Aries.

What Is Your Witchcraft Budget?

At one of the reiki shares we were sharing what was going on a bit in our lives. One share stuck out to me the next day. It was of a parent who was putting two kids through college and how as parents they had to go over what their budget was so they could afford to send both progeny to college. One thing that had to be factored into their budget was witchcraft and what they Read More...

The Pact, Contract, and Agreement Here and There 

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle Witches are known for making the pact, the contract, with otherworldly powers. It is described in both the Medieval Christian world and today’s popular horror and fiction as an infernal pact between the Witch and the Devil, where the soul is exchanged for a familiar spirit, magickal knowledge, and power. Today’s Witches, however, see it a distortion of traditional shamanic and magickal practices—agreement and relationship. Magickal workers across the world Read More...
