These are all the same benefits I'm offering at two dollars, but maybe you just like me? I can promise you that all the money I make on Patreon goes back into me writing and research materials aren't cheap, so it's very much appreciated!

About Jason Mankey

Hi! Thanks for coming by. I'm Jason Mankey, I write books about magick and Witchcraft, spit out articles online, and present workshops and rituals all across North America. I am not much of a social media influencer, though I have done a few videos over the years, and post lots of pictures of my garden on Instagram. I also write for Witches and Pagans magazine when they remind me to, and do the occasional podcast ("Witchcraft, Whisky, and Wit," though not necessarily in that order). I like being connected to folks in the greater Pagan and Witchcraft communities, which is why I've created this account.

Away from the public Witchcraft stuff I help run two covens in Northern California. The first of those covens is my eclectic coven and I love it! It's a petri-dish for rituals, and all the weird and different rituals I put in my books are generally tested out in our eclectic group. Most of that coven's liturgy was written by me too, which is either good or bad depending on how you feel about my writing. In addition, my wife and I run a Gardnerian Coven, which taps into the energies of British Traditional Witchcraft. I love ritual! I love writing ritual! And I love sharing ritual! The Craft has blessed me over the years and I strive to give back to it.

Though I like to think my writing is easily digestible, a lot of my books are designed as "Witchcraft 202" books, meaning they aren't necessarily written for beginners. The content I share here will reflect that, so if you are at the very beginning of your journey this may not be a good fit. However, I love questions, and the perspectives of new Witches are often enlightening! I love being around people who are new to the Craft; it helps me look at my Witchcraft activities with fresh eyes. 

My biggest hope with this page is to grow a COMMUNITY. I want to cultivate a space away from the toxicity of social media (especially Facebook) where Witches and Pagans can gather to talk about their magickal path and magickal experiences. This might be "my" page but ideally it will become a place where we can all learn and grow together. This might sound like goobbledygook but I'm really serious about it.

I also want to talk about stuff away from Witchcraft too! I love superhero movies and Sci-Fi tv shows, let's chat about those things! My love of Scotch whisky is no secret, and I want to review whisky here and do some live tastings! Less popular in the magickal world is my love of sports, but for the five of us who care about such stuff, you'll be able to experience the highs and lows of the NFL season with me! I also want to know about your hobbies and passions! There's a world of things to chat about. 

My Patreon will be in "Beta Mode" during May 2021 as I adjust to doing this.  The full launch will be in June, though I'll be sharing stuff this month if someone does sign up!

                                                     HOW THIS WILL WORK

I live a pretty charmed life. I'm not going to starve if I don't have fifty people sign up for my Patreon. I'll also continue to write books and visit festivals no matter what happens here. Because of that, and because community is one of the things I really want to build, I want to keep all of this inexpensive. Memberships start at just two dollars, and for those 200 pennies, you'll get just about everything I want to share here.  

I'm going to share the projects I'm currently working, and you'll be the first to see book excerpts and to know what's coming up next! Every sabbat I'll share a coven ritual with you, along with other assorted rituals too. There will be a book club, where we read, select, and talk about books together! You'll have access to my Discord server where we can chat about random things, and meet up once a month to hang out and talk about Witchcraft! And I'm super-excited about the Discord chats, it'll be a place for long-form answers to Witchcraft questions and concerns. There will also be exclusive articles, and bits from the books that ended up on the cutting room floor.  

And I want to do something I've NEVER done before, share pictures and pages from my personal Books of Shadows! It'll be embarrassing for me, but entertaining for you! The Mankey Witchcraft archives date back to 1994! I've got old 'zine articles that you'll get a chance to look at, plus letters I wrote to Pagan periodicals in the 1990's. I think it's all worth a look, even if it makes people laugh a bit. 

I want to get away from social media and build something special, and I hope you'll be a part of that! And if you don't, you can still see pictures of my sunflowers on Instagram and I'll still love you. No worries about that. If you want to participate but it isn't financially viable right now, I understand that, and we can work on finding a place for you here too!

                                                     WORDS OF WARNING

The magickal community I know is a place of love and acceptance. I've got no bandwidth for racism, transphobia, misogyny, and homophobia. Black Lives Matter! Trans-women are women! Trans-men are men! These things are important to me and these values are built into the system. I love free speech, but I won't tolerate speech that belittles and marginalizes others in this space.  

And be sure you know how Patreon works. If you sign up for this adventure, you'll get charged the first of every month, no matter when you first sign up was. I think it's really great of you if you want to sign up on the 28th, but it's probably better for you if wait until the first of the month.
