|L to R: Rob, David, Crimson|
On Aug. 4, Saturday, I was privileged to be one of the speakers and met some other very interesting speakers, one of "witch" was David Salisbury who is, in fact, a witch and an herbalist and much more. I also met another witch named Crimson who was helping David out.
I learned a lot about Wicca, the religion of witches (and witches can be male or female) and they're nothing like the fake "satanic" stuff that society has been fed by mis-information. David's talk was eye opening and refreshing I learned a lot! In this blog you'll learn about David, what is Wicca and David's herbalism.
David said: "Magic infuses every area of my life. I write about the ways in which the magical arts transform the soul and move us into states of beauty and power. My work focuses on abandoning dogma and daring to step into a current of experiential witchcraft that's focused on "doing" rather than "believing."
|David talking about what being a Wiccan really means|
NOT SATANIC - It's a religion about worshipping nature! The Old Religion" is a diverse and decentralized religion that is part of contemporary Paganism/Nature Spirituality.
WICCAN'S DON'T PUT CURSES ON PEOPLE - That's more made up stuff.
DAVID THE HERBALIST:
the most ancient of all arts associated with the magic-workers of old is held within the art of wortcunning, what we would today call herbalism. Pharmakeia is the name given in ancient Greece to identify sorcery, the knowledge of plants, and their medicines together; two things nearly indistinguishable from each other.

I was first introduced to the Craft at the age of 11 by my stepmother, and then on a deeper more intentional level by a childhood friend at the age of 12. That same year, I began training with a friend's family coven and initiated a year later. I teach around the country and have presented at Pagan Pride Days, Pagan Spirit Gathering, Sacred Harvest Festival, Pantheacon, Firefly Housewarming Conference, TempleFest and at shops around the nation. My workshops place a strong focus on deepening one's personal connection to the Craft through daily practice, heartfelt ritual, and spirit alliances.
