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.

By Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle  If you are involved with any esoteric movement, the rampant conspiracy theory culture—its worst embodied by QAnon, which is all conspiracy with little esoterics—can’t be ignored. But to neutralize it and heal what it has led to, we must consider its occult significance and how we got to this particular manifestation. I am not against conspiracy theories. I think they are crucial to the greater initiatory process. They are, however Read More...

Mystery School Roundup

With a new year of online Mystery School classes beginning, as well as advanced classes like the Society of the Temple, it seemed a good time as we look forward to the year ahead to take stock of the "in-person" Mystery School courses being offered by Temple teachers as well. That "in-person" is in quotes, of course, because these courses are planned to be held online for now as a covid-19 precaution, but will hopefully transition back Read More...

Temple Astrolog: Seriously, again?

written by Karin Ugander Are people, conflicts and things that you thought you were done with reappearing in your life? Does some parts of your life feel like a soap opera going on repeat? Are you thinking “will this never end”? Well you are not alone. The stars and numbers right now are suggesting that we are in a kind of crossroad where it is important to re-confirm what you stand for, what kind of life that Read More...

written by Karin Ugander Change of events? Unexpected twists and turns? Right now we are in a passage where you might be redirected by Spirit. In different phases and places we are more or less open to take another road. So what can we do to navigate in the best possible way? Let´s take a look at the stars and see what they have to say. A few times a year it looks as if Mercury is Read More...

The Personal Impersonal

By Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle  The occultist knows the fundamental forces of creation, mediated by the gods and spirit entities, are impersonal. They embody impersonal forces, cosmic and terrestrial, but provide a way in which we can interact with them. The priest/ess from the perspective of religion knows these forces are immensely personal and develops relationships with individuals, communities, and the world. They are real, individual beings whom we love, and who can love us Read More...

written by Karin Ugander Are you feeling like everyone needs you and that there is not enough time and energy to go round? Are you mixing up dates and meetings? Is it hard to tell what day of the week it is? Well, you are not alone. We are in a wave of strong emotional hunger and a lot of confusion at the same time as we are in a mist of telepathically openings. Exiting but also Read More...

Putting It Into Practice

By Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle  I wish more occultists, magicians, and witches used a bit more occultism, magick, and witchcraft. Or even some basic understanding of energy dynamics and psychology. I don’t mean lighting candles or reciting spells, but integrating these core concepts into their daily lives and interactions with people. I fear that even with great blessings of communication and connectivity from the internet age, we are training a generation of magicians to disregard Read More...

written by Karin Ugander We are in a time of turbulence and strong energies are moving through us, both on a personal and a collective plane. It may feel like the earth is shaking and yet at the same time a feeling of standing still, not moving fast enough. So how could this be? And is there anything that one can do to find some kind of balance and perhaps peace? Well, I believe there is. Let´s Read More...
