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.

Magick in the Mundane: Mothering immortals

by Erica Sittler We were sitting there, enjoying our midday meal together. Suddenly, my daughter pulls out a sheet of folded notebook paper and asks, “May I ask you seven questions?” That is music to any parent’s ears: a teenager wanting to ask questions? Seven questions to be precise! We go through her thoughtful list, each geared about me and her from the perspective of memory. Questions like: “What’s your favorite memory that has me in it Read More...

Temple Astrolog: With a Little Help From My Little Friends

We are moving into a time with outer planets in retrograde and for some that can create a feeling of being stuck or that things are moving exceptionally slow. But, we still have friends in the personal planets that are free to help us. We just have to change perspective and perhaps work in a different way with our magick and how we work with our projects. So, let's grab a cup of coffee or tea and Read More...

Darker than Most

by Christopher Penczak, Edited by Tina Whittle “My draw to the occult is darker than most,” was recently said to me by someone trying to explain their plan to seek magickal vengeance on someone they believed had wronged them. They had sought me out either to confirm their righteousness or perhaps be talked out of it, as they seemed to really need someone to listen and help them process it. I don’t know if they went through Read More...

Magick in the Mundane: The Wisps of Magickal Power

by Erica Sittler Storms are rolling through our neck of the woods these days. Full of mighty strength unleashed. It was during such a storm that our neurotic, elderly dog escaped while my husband slept and while I slowly, yet doggedly, made my way home via delayed flight after delayed flight. When I finally arrived at my doorstep at 1 am, the other pets cheerily came to greet me. No Molly dog. A slight alarm bell in Read More...

The Challenge

by Christopher Penczak, Edited by Tina Whittle Should Witchcraft, magick, and in fact, any spiritual pursuit be challenging, or should it be easy and accepting? Yes. I think the answer to that depends on where you are and what you are interfacing with in terms of a teaching, a tradition, and a community. Like all relationships, we can go through a phase of first excitement and intrigue—a courtship! We can also go through a honeymoon phase where Read More...

Voices of the Temple: Sellena, part 2

Adam concludes his conversation with Temple High Priestess Sellena, Aquarius lead minister, teacher, podcaster, and community organizer and leader in Mississippi Read More...

When I was a little girl, I thought that cornucopias were the coolest things, but as I had never seen one in “real life”, I wasn’t quite sure they existed. I had only seen them in pictures, drawings and cartoons. I learned otherwise as a grownup, and when I happened to find them for sale in an Arts & Crafts store, I had to buy one! Welcome back, Broom Closet Witches, to the eleventh article in our Read More...
