A recurring and polarizing topic in the witchcraft community is the act of incorporating animal bones and remains into ritual. If you've been on Instagram for any length of time, you've probably seen plenty of witchy photos featuring various animal parts like teeth, fur, skulls, feet, and claws alongside other magical items. Including bones in magick is a practice as old as time, but it remains a topic that's largely omitted from books on modern witchcraft. This makes it difficult to find practical information about it. Maybe you yourself are drawn to the mysticism of skulls and bones, but are unsure what role these often misunderstood objects would play in your craft. Here are some ...

While it would be easy for many people to practice yoga for years and miss this incredible part of yoga, ...

Most people describe American culture as a combination of Christianity and secularism, one deeply divided today by the tensions between them. Our choice, as individuals and as a society, seems to be between science and "religion." If polytheism is considered by either group, it is considered a way-station in humanity's journey towards worshiping one God, or none at all. Both perspectives are mistaken. What we loosely call polytheism is the natural experience human beings have always had of the world of spirit, and is a much more accurate understanding of the world within which we live than the secularism usually considered monotheism's alternative. Polytheism is not only more in keeping ...
