Brainscan #33: DIY Witchery (An Exploration of Secular Witchcraft)
In this issue of Brainscan, Alex Wrekk (Stolen Sharpie Revolution) discusses the individualized witchcraft practice she's pieced together over the past decade. While documenting her journey, she looks at a variety of other witchcraft traditions, why they didn't fully work for her, and why secular witchcraft is just as valid as any other form. She also gives plenty of history and context to help understand terms that often get lumped together (Wicca, Pagan, etc), and critiques the cultural appropriation and consumerism that often arise in modern witchcraft manifestations.
The zine can also serve as a how-to guide to building your own practice. She encourages readers who are interested to figure out their own path, and to simply view her story as inspiration to seek something that works for them.
