Dr. Raymond Buckland

Raina and I are thrilled to be joined by the Father of American Wicca! Personally, I couldn't be happier that he will be with us on my Birthday and a week before his Birthday.

Dr. Buckland has written over Sixty books on Witchcraft and the Occult, one of which was most of the Pagan communities first book when starting on this path, The Complete Book of Witchcraft. He was born in London to an English Mother and a Father that was of Roma decent (Gypsy), but it wasn't until he moved to the United States that he started his study of witchcraft, corresponding with the late Gerald Gardner. Buckland became the American voice for Gardner, whom he had become good friends with but only met in person once at Buckland's initiation ceremony.

On top of the numerous books on magick and fiction works, like The Golden Illuminati and Chronicles of Kernow, he has created a few tarot decks. The Romani Deck and our favorite, the Domino Divination Deck! There is also the Buckland Spirit Board to be had for those that like to be connected to the other side.

Dr. Buckland spends a lot of time in Lily Dale, NY and can be seen in the HBO documentary, No One Dies in Lily Dale. Here is a short clip of him in Lily Dale.

Again, we are thrilled that he is joining us and you can find more information by going to his website or his Facebook fan page. If you are lucky enough to be close to Camp Chesterfield in IN, stop in to take one of his workshops....Sept. 28th, Sept 29th, and Sept 30th!

Please join us at 9PM EST this Friday for the Birthday Bash!
