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.

Temple Astrolog: Releasing Energy

Mars has entered the sign of Capricorn and we have some very interesting weeks ahead of us. Mars is connected to the fiery god Ares and brings fire, excitement, energy, and sex to whatever it touches. He also brings challenging things like impatience, irritation, anger, and the potential for violence. Since Mars rules Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, there is also an immature side to him. Why wait on the things that you want? Why Read More...

The Three Shadows

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle When you do the work of the Witch, you take certain things for granted. If something wasn’t spelled out for you, you often didn’t spell it out to those around you, including students and peers. Such understandings can come in the silent knowing. But as we grow as a community, we need to be more skillful in transmitting the mystery techniques. Some things need a little more vocabulary and context Read More...

Temple Astrolog: Karmic Romance

Some relationships get us deeper in the heart than others. That's just the way it is. And it's not necessarily the length of the meeting or the relationship that determines how deep it will affect us. Some wounds of the heart heal and mend over time, others need more help and assistance. Right now the planet Venus (love, relationships) has moved into the sign of Aries (self) right next to both Chiron (healing) and Lilith black moon Read More...


Offering the Sacred to Ourselves

by Renee Bedard As Reiki practitioners, part of our calling is to assist others to begin their healing. We provide comfort and sacred space. We offer support while a client is releasing fear, sorrow, guilt, and pain. We build a healing temple, fortified with love so others can feel safe to venture out of their shadows and feel their light once again. It is in that sacredness where a deep breath in offers rebirth and an exhale Read More...

The Trail of Breadcrumbs

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle I was recently speaking to a high priestess who was a bit bereft. During her years of training, the intensity of the classes helped her keep focus. There were assignments, feedback, and work to be done. Now that the training was over, what next? She compared herself to those around her, who all seemed to have a clear road of mystical work and service before them. She couldn’t help wondering Read More...

The asteroid Pallas Athena has just moved into the sign of Capricorn. There she is helping us to have a strategic plan on how to move forward with our career, work, and how to reach success and fame. Pallas always has a plan, because she is very clever and when she strikes she rarely misses her point. When in Capricorn she can also assist us with protection, boundaries and how to say no to things that are Read More...

The Holy Grail of Nuance

by Christopher Penczak, edited by Tina Whittle I am on a quest for the Holy Grail of nuance in a wasteland of hyperbole and bravado. I seek a holy cup bejeweled with sensitivity and sharing, and I find a cup filled with salt and fire. No, I am not talking about a deep and powerful pathworking through otherworlds, but my experience on social media this week. I have become That Guy, the one who argues with people Read More...
