Who is Alythia?

Hi, I’m Alythia. I am a lot of things. I’m an American woman who is also a priestess within the Church of the Knotted Ash, a “wicca-adjacent” tradition of witchcraft. I teach, I blog, I sometimes podcast. Aside from all that, I also do most of the things an ordinary person does — raise a family, hold a job, maintain friendships and support my community.

I do what I do because the Craft is growing very fast, and there are lots of folks out there interested in doing magic. And while there are some great authors and teachers and podcasters and bloggers out there, there are also lots of people who either don’t have much to offer or want to make a buck off of seekers any way they can. I’m just trying to up the signal-to-noise ratio out here and help both new and more experienced witches think a little harder about their craft and their path.

As a pagan, I believe that people have a right to decide their own path in this world, and be exactly who they are. As a witch, I believe I have an obligation to stand up for those who are oppressed, marginalized and otherwise in need of what power I may have. My practice is a melding of celtic and norse influences and I am adamantly inclusive in my paganism. I teach the “Rule of 100” — Nothing is 100 percent true for 100 percent of witches 100 percent of the time.

Why subscribe?

I try to offer good free content for those who are new to the Craft, or who have a passing interest in things magical. But there’s a whole lot more that I have to say about things. Right now all my content is free. That may change eventually, but one thing I want to do is take care of my early subscribers and make sure they never pay for content. Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and website. Never miss an update.
