is an ancient religion which predates recorded history.
Since man witnessed his first lightning bolt, drop of rain,
and spark of fire, he has sought to petition and appease
those elemental forces through sacred rites. Nature is God's
blueprint, and since time immemorial humanity has sought
union with God and Goddess through the God and Goddess'
Witchcraft is an animistic religion, meaning, we believe
that all of nature has a consciousness and contains a spirit.
We believe in one Eternal Spirit that first manifested itself
in two polarities expressed in our God and Goddess, reflected
in the heavens as the sun and the moon, and here on earth
in humanity, created both male and female, in their perfect
There is a Witch's maxim which states "As above, So below,"
explained in theory of the macrocosm and the microcosm.
We see the Macrocosm as being our solar system, Macrocosm
meaning large cosmos, and we see the microcosm, or the little
cosmos, as man, meaning that we are of small universe within
a greater universe linked by the same pattern of creation.
Aleister Crowley defined Magick as "the science and art
of causing change to occur in conformity with Will." Magick
is the highest, most absolute and divine knowledge of natural
philosophy, advanced in its works and wonderful operations
by the right understanding of the inward and occult virtue
There is no suggestion that Magick acts by anything other
than the forces of Nature, being understood and used by
one whose knowledge penetrates to the hidden side of nature,
and to the working of those powers commonly called occult.
What, however, is the true object of Magick? Is it to foretell
the future, to gain power over others, to make talismans
to work one's will for various ends, to communicate with
spirits, and so on? No. To the true magician these things
are incidentals. They can be done, but to pursue them as
ends in themselves is to fall into the trap of black magic.
They should be regarded rather as means to an end. By developing
their powers, the magician or witch develop themselves.
They aid in their own evolution, their growth as a human
being, and in so far as they truly do this, they aid in
the evolution of the human race.
However, there is a sinister side to Magick as well. Those
who wish to pursue such a path, to wreak havoc, control,
destroy or to interfere with the free will of another, shall
receive a serious penalty for such negative work.
As Witches, we are responsible for our actions and are bound
by the Wiccan Rede to work toward beneficial ends by doing
all we do with love.
thy Wiccan Law ye must
With Perfect Love and Perfect Trust
Eight words of Wiccan Rede fulfill,
And ye harm none, do what thy will.
Lest in thy self defense it be,
Ever, mind the Rule of Three.
Follow this with thy mind and heart,
Merry we meet and Merry we part.
raising of the Universal Life Energy is an awe inspiring
sensation. The instant we use it in a negative manner, divinity
is immediately lost. When magick is used in a positive manner
our lives become richer, happier and more productive.
For these reasons, we do not support negative magick. To
those desirous to help better themselves and others through
the ancient workings of our ancestors, we welcome you one
