It is with great regret that we announce the passing of Raymond Buckland, an elder of the craft who will be sorely missed. His importance to the growth of both Wicca and Paganism cannot be overstated as he introduced Wicca into America in 1964, ultimately leading to the massive growth in the community there and elsewhere. He went on to write around sixty books that have been translated into seventeen languages, further extending his influence around the world. He has been a spokesperson for the craft in America for over five decades. Our sympathy and best wishes go to his family and friends at this difficult time.

Blessings from everyone at Children of Artemis,
may his spirit find it’s way into the Summerlands

  • Initiated: An Interview With Amanda Yates Garcia
    Magic is the act of bringing what is in your imagination into material reality. It’s a co-creative act. It’s about collaboration with the numinous powers of the universe. It’s important we don’t forget that. When you’re doing a magical act, it has to feel creative. You can’t just go through the motions. You have to take pleasure in it. Be fully present for it.
