  • How familiar are you with witchcraft?
    This is hard for me to answer. Both my wife and I have internalized the practice for many years. We were both initially interested in what passes for new age fluff, until we quite unexpectedly had a direct experience with the spirit world. Our practice and outlook changed dramatically after that. One could say that our practice matured.
  • Have you explored other paths?
    Tons. I started with Theosophy and got into Golden Dawn stuff when I was a young teen. I also played around with what I thought was Druidism, Asatru and other reconstructionist belief systems. Religiously, I have considered most of the major religions. I became a Freemason in 2010 to continue the family tradition of my in-laws. I am an active member.
  • Have you ever worked with Traditional Witchcraft?
    By my definition? Yes. I got involved in more traditional folkways when I read Draja Mickaharic's books. While I didn't agree with a lot of his world views, the techniques were priceless for me. That provided a springboard for me to be able to learn by trial and error.
  • What does Traditional Witchcraft mean to you?
    Traditional witchcraft to me is amoral, practical and experiential. It is a craft. It is artisinal, hands-on. It exists independent of religious or social beliefs, much like any other manual skill.
  • How long have you worked with witchcraft in general?
    I have been interested in the occult since I was around 14 ish. I dabbled in many different things and arrived at what I do now in my early 20's. I'm 31 now, so I've either been involved for around 10 years or 17 (ish) years. I'll let others be the judge.
  • What brought you to our site?
    Google! I have been looking for a witchcraft forum that doesn't lose itself in sentimentalism. I'm fairly sure I've found one.
  • What do you expect to get from this site, and what do you expect to contribute to this forum?
    I hope to be able to flesh out my own practice. I also enjoy discussing and challenging my own ideas about certain things. While i tend to get really cerebral, I find that it isn't satisfying to me. I like practical stuff and practical stuff is what I hope to share with others.
  • Do you belong to any other online witchcraft sites?
    Noperoo. I used to belong to Abrahadabra forums and Occultforums when they existed.
  • What are your strongest points in witchcraft?
    I'm amazing at working with the spirits of things (and just spirits in general). I have a serious knack for all kinds of so-called "natural magic" (rootworking, herbs, kitchen witchery... that stuff).
  • What are your weakest points in witchcraft?
    I get super impatient sometimes. I also sometimes obsess over something I've done (magically) and derail it. I suspect these are just part of my personality and will be a lifetime struggle. Who knows... <br /><br />When I was into chaos magic/psionics, I stunk at making constructs and all that junk. I wanted it to be done immediately and would sort of thin out or dilute the effects of my magic.
  1. And http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Q4JoJJCx1k Music made from specially consecrated human bones. Ritual ambient at its least poser-ish.
  2. Did anyone mention Fever Ray? I feel like I should mention them (her?). One of those artists where you wonder where they got their inspiration from, if not from "under the hollow hills." Edit: I listen to Faun a lot as well, though it often doesn't fall under "dark." There are much darker world music groups like Zero Kama. I guess you could call them world music. What would you call music made entirely from human bones?
  3. What about dark, witchy music? I just recently found Wardruna, which is a pretty awesome band.
