Gay Witchcraft: Empowering the Tribe (New)
by Penczak, Christopher
Publisher: Red Wheel/Weiser
Book ID: 9781578632817, 1578632811
Usually available in 3-5 days
When Christopher Penczak acknowledged that he was Gay, he felt betrayed by the Catholic Church of his childhood and turned away from any religious expression. When he was introduced to Witchcraft, he found a spiritual path that honored and embraced him. Now he has written a book of clearheaded theory and practice that is bound to become a classic. With Gay Witchcraft, Penczak joins the ranks of his forebears in spirit, gay writers who have taken a tradition and made it "home" for queer folk.
Penczak has gathered all he's learned in his studies of Wicca from a homocentric perspective and created Gay Witchcraft, the first complete book of theory and spiritual practices of witchcraft for the gay community. Central to the practice of Witchcraft is the Divine Couple and sex magick. Penczak's writing on this central mystery masterfully informs its true meaning and practice.
Gay Witchcraft will make it much easier for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people interested in practicing any form of witchcraft. The book explores the history of Paganism and offers a compendium of spells, meditations, and affirmations that will enrich both the novice and the experienced practitioner seeking out new views of myth, ritual, and healing for the Gay community.
Chapters include: Good Witch of the West, The Secret History, Queer Myth, Animal Language, Love Magick, Turning the Wheel of the Year, and Rites of Passage.
"Modern witchcraft offers quite a bit to the gay community. I found a sense of belonging, not necessarily to a larger group, a physical community, but a belonging in my own spirit, and an understanding that people like me had a rich spiritual tradition. All I had to do was reclaim it for myself." -- Christopher Penczak
