Modern witchcraft combines feminism, self-help, and wellness. But is there more to it than pretty crystals, stunning Instagram pictures, and lucrative business opportunities?

I think that’s called “fake news.”

    In regard to the Daily Beast article–How it describes witchcraft seems quite different from my own experience as a participant in and practitioner of Neopagan witchcraft. Magic (as revealed by my various teachers and my own doings) does not revolve around empowerment, self-betterment, and not-too-mooney spirituality. It orbits transformation and adaptation that often has little to do with any personal dimension, as well as deities and energies that sometimes make any notion of selfhood seem almost irrelevant.
