ABOUT THE FOUNDER
I’ve been on a recent journey of personal growth and discovery that started in college. Learning about other cultures and questioning the path I wanted to walk in life raised deep questions I hadn’t pondered before. As my religious perception of the world transformed into a spiritual perception, I embraced my lifelong love of plants and awe of the moon to fill the void left behind where the religious teachings I’d been indoctrinated with as a child used to be. I’ve always had a thirst for knowledge. This is a place for me to share what I’ve learned and document the journey, and also for me to connect with like-minded people. I want the knowledge I’ve collected to be accessible for anyone who, like me, is searching for something.
The articles on this website take an atheistic approach to green and holistic living. By that, I don’t mean that I am pushing atheism or alienating religious visitors by attempting to dissuade them of their beliefs. I believe spiritual practices can be observed by anyone regardless of the deity/deities you worship, if you choose to worship one at all. You can arrange an altar and pray to the pagan gods, the Wiccan God and Goddess, Yahweh, Allah, Odin, Zeus, or any other deity when celebrating the seasonal changes and lunar cycles. Or, if you do not worship a particular deity, you can simply honor the earth and the cycles of the universe as you focus inward on your personal spirituality. Any of the practices here can be adapted to fit your religious or spiritual needs.
THE GREEN WITCH
I’ve always found comfort and satisfaction in caring for houseplants, but I’m expanding my knowledge by learning more about them. Propagation techniques, health benefits, alternative uses besides just looking pretty in a windowsill. I’m here to share what I’ve learned, and to continue learning and growing and appreciating Nature.
THE LUNAR WITCH
I first found solace in celebrating Yule, honoring the winter solstice, and finding the light in the dead of winter, and then later, celebrating Imbolc. I started setting aside time on the night of the new moon and the full moon to arrange a candlelit alter, ceremoniously smudge my home, and meditate. Sometimes I performed a simple candle spell.
Taking the time out of the nonstop rush to sit, and clear my thoughts, and simply appreciate the shifting moon and the comfort of her repetitive cycle even during the chaos of the world brought me immeasurable peace, even more so than prayer ever had. I’m still learning so much about the various practices, and once again, I’m here to share what I’ve learned, from crystal properties, to candle spells, to smudging, to pagan holidays, and everything in between.
If you’re like me and you feel like you’ve been missing something, I hope you find it here. Or, if you’re simply looking to expand your knowledge about plants and simple, wholesome witchcraft practices, you’ll find that here, too. If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to answer.
All the best,
