Human history has created some wild ideas that still persist about witchcraft and witches, in general. One extreme imagines dark, secret rituals with sinister intent, curses being cast on the unwary designed to bring about their undoing. The opposite extreme draws witches as caricatures, with images of children dressed in their pointed hats enjoying candy; of cutouts of witches surrounded by broomsticks, pumpkins, and dry leaves. This creates a problem in trying to understand witchcraft as a spiritual path. The subject is either too frightening or too silly to consider. You may be surprised to discover that witchcraft is often quite a bit more sophisticated and thoughtful than expected.[i]
