Brainscan #33 DIY Witchery (an exploration of Secular Witchcraft)

In 20 years of publishing Brainscan zine there is one incredibly important thing in my life that I have not written about, and that is witchcraft. I am a witch and I have been studying and practicing witchcraft for over a decade and it has been a very useful tool in my life and personal growth.
This zine is a not a how-to-witch zine. This zine is an issue of Brainscan that just happens to be about witchcraft told through my personal narrative.
In this zine I explore what witchcraft is, how I became interested in it, how I built my own practice as an agnostic secular witch and how that differs from a lot of contemporary witchcraft. I share a glimpse of what my personal practice as a non-pagan and non-Wiccan witch looks like.
I also examine my personal issues with modern pagan and witchcraft culture addressing things like racism, cultural appropriation, colonialism, capitalism, the excessive gendering of all things. My politics are intersectional - so is my witchcraft.
I also discuss some tips and a few resource for those that might be interested in exploring witchcraft for themselves.

Brainscan #34 a Dabbler's Week of DIY Witchery

In January 2020 there was an article/review of a witchcraft book where the author attempted to become a witch in a week by following the ideas in the book. They came to the conclusion that modern witches were anti-vax climate and change deniers.

The internet witches freaked out! One clever witch asked what someone should actually do to dabble in witchcraft for a week. Some witches set out to answer that question and this is a zine version of my answer.

To me, a big part of studying witchcraft is changing your perspective and seeing the world a little differently. I propose daily activities that starts with cleaning your room, simple energy exercises, what correspondences are how they might work, what animism is, a couple simple spells, and more all told in a conversational non-authoritative tone.
