Many members of the Pr Ntr Kmt religion are Witches. The most famous kind of Witchcraft is Wicca, but there are many other kinds of Witchcraft both modern and ancient from cultures all over the world.
Witchcraft is the oldest known religion (based on archaeological evidence, including small Goddess figurines, burial rituals, ivory witchcraft tools, and botanical plant remains) and witchcraft is the fastest growing religion in the United States.
Reliable archaeological and historical evidence on traditional witchcraft is limited and consists mostly of accounts of Christians falsely accusing other Christians, Jews, and women of being witches during the Burning Times. Most modern witchcraft is based on some combination of archaeology, family oral traditions, modern reconstructions and interpretations, and such activities as dreams, visions, divination, and other subjective sources.
Witchcraft is the fastest growing religion in the United States and Great Britain and has surpassed (or will soon surpass, depending on who does the polling) Judaism as the third most populous religion in the U.S. (Christianity is the most populous religion in the U.S. and Islam is second). Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world (primarily because of high birth rates, not because of new conversions). Buddhism is the fastest growing religion in Australia. The Falun Dafa or Falun Gong religion is the fastest growing religion in China.
The leading voice among world Witches is witchvox.org [external link]. Witchvox is a great web site with listings for a wide variety of witchcraft practices and beliefs.
- A witch is a female shaman, typically including divination (astrology, palmistry, Tarot, I Ching, etc.), healing (herbal medications, aromatherapy, massage, sacred sexuality, etc.), and magick. (see note below about male witches)
- The practice of any of the arts of a witch or the religion of a witch.
- Wizard; traitor. From Old English wær covenant + -loga one who denies (related to leogan to lie), literally meaning oath-breaker. This term reflects medieval Christian propaganda and does not accurately describe a male witch.
Pr Ntr Kmt offers an official certificate that authorizes Witches to perform processions, circles, holy days, Sabbats, Esbats, ceremonies, celebrations, fire jumpings, commitments, weddings, handfastings, renewals, annulments, separations, divorces, funerals, blessings, namings, welcomings, baptisms, comings of age, rites of passage, affirmations, dedications, readings, and/or other rituals.
This official certificate is a beautiful work of art by the artist MichaelM (most famous for his artwork for the Marley family and his banners for hemp/cannabis relegalization) that you can frame and display proudly to your family and friends.
In the United States this official certificate authorizes you to perform any ceremonies that the government recognizes other religions to perform (such as marriages or handfastings). There may be many additional requirements imposed by state governments that apply equally to all religions. Sometimes you may face active discrimination by Christians, Jews, or Muslims in government positions and may need to hire a lawyer to assert your Constitutional rights.

There is a lot of confusion over exactly what witchcraft is. Part of this confusion is because witch has a lot of different meanings, and the number of meanings is expanding rapidly. The preceeding definition is a root definition, from which the many modern defintions are derived. Obviously there will be a lot of modern witches who dont match the root definition. Pr Ntr Kmt is not trying to exclude them. Once you understand the root definition, it becomes easier to understand how the many modern varieties came into existence.
In particular, Pr Ntr Kmt is not trying to discriminate against guys. Of course men can be witches. Traditionally, witches are women, but there have always been a small number of male witches. In modern times it is much more common for males to become witches.
The origins of witchcraft were early human efforts to deal with womens mysteries, particularly the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and childbirth. Nobody is certain when witchcraft first started, although it probably started around the same time that pre-humans mastered fire (around 400,000 years ago). The oldest evidence of witchcraft is a piece of whalebone from 106,000 years ago that has a crude calendar marking the phases of the moon and a womans menstrual cycle.
Early witchcraft combined magick ritual with herbal preparations, built on millenia of lore passed down through generations of wise women.
As one example, consider the use of the rose. Modern science has revealed that the rose hip (the sweet part at the center of a rose) has the highest concentration of iron of any plant (it is also an excellent source of vitamin C). A woman loses a lot of iron during her period, and a natural supplement of iron has obvious positive benefits. Additionally, there are a few dozen minor trace ingredients in rose hips, many of which help stabilize a womans emotions and moods while on her period.
Obviously early witches didnt know the scientific details, but they did know that eating rose hips (either fresh, or dried rose hips used to make rose hip tea) helped during menstruation. So, taking rose hips during menstruation became a fairly standard part of witchcraft.
In fact, it is this witchcraft practice that led to the association of roses with romance. Before Christianity, the use of rose hips or rose hip tea during a womans period was fairly common knowledge. The men who were close to a woman (particularly her husband or mate) would make sure that they brought their lover plenty of roses during her period. And obviously a man would have to be on intimate terms with a woman to know the right timing for when to bring roses.
Several Christian popes attempted to eliminate the practice of witchcraft, including outlawing growing or possessing flowers with the death penalty (because witchcraft made so much use of various flowers for herbal preparations). This harsh penalty caused a lot of the common knowledge about the herbal effects of various flowers to be lost in Western civilization, but the association of roses with romance and love remained long after the actual witchcraft meaning was lost.
Witchcraft, like any living religion, has blossomed and grown and changed through the millenia, and now has lots of different forms. But all of those new forms can be traced back to early female shamanism.
kinds of witchcraft
Just about every culture in the world had at least one form of witchcraft. There are several hundred common forms of witchcraft practiced in the United States, Great Britain, and around the world, the two most common being eclectic withcraft and Wicca.
Eclectic Witchcraft is an individual approach in which a witch picks and chooses from many different traditions and creates a personalized form of witchcraft that meets her needs and abilities.
Wicca is a loosely connected group of about 150 modern Western witchcraft religions.
