Christopher Penczak joins us to talk about witchcraft, Magick, spirituality, religion, teaching, and some of his books, including his latest, “The Living Temple of Witchcraft Volume One: The Descent of the Goddess.”
We talk about the way religion and magic fit together. Our conversation then delves into Christopher’s spiritual path, witchcraft, and the Goddess. He describes the attraction of the Sacred Feminine for him and how it led him back to a more spiritual and magical life.
We discuss the syncretic nature of his teaching and praxis that combines witchcraft, ideas from Hermetics, Qabalah, and even Alchemy. Christopher talks about how witchcraft shares ideas in common with Thelema and how Crowley’s work inspired him when he was younger. We touch on the concept of balance in spirituality and life in general. Penczak’s books and classes are very highly regarded, and in this conversation, you’ll hear why.
