About the magazine

Spiral Nature is an online magazine dedicated to alternative spiritualities, practical magick, and exploring occulture.

Established in 2000, Spiral Nature‘s history goes back further than that. It’s the product of several successive websites dealing with similar themes.

While Spiral Nature’s editor-in-chief is headquartered in Toronto, Canada, our writers hail from around the world. In addition to our Canadian contributors, we have regular contributors from England and the United States, and occasional contributors from everywhere from Japan to the Summerlands.

Our readers are by and large American (76%), followed by British (7%), Canadian (2%) and the rest of the world. For more information about our readers, please see our advertising opportunities.

About the content

As of July 2016 the site is host more than 1,100 essays, articles and reviews written by more than 220 authors on a wide range of esoteric subjects, such as ceremonial magick, chaos magick, tarot, Discordianism, Satanism, Wicca and Thelema, with an extensive book and media review section.

Our Review section first began in 2004, and now consists of over 500 reviews of books, videos, CDs, tapes, tarot and oracle decks. It’s become one of our most popular sections as it’s continually expanding — as we receive new material to be reviewed, and as our reviewer staff grows.

About the membership program

While we’re long established (by Internet standards, anyway), Spiral Nature is actually a small operation run by a handful of volunteers out of the founder and editor-in-chief’s home office. As we grow, we find that we’re outstripping our resources, and we rely on your help to continue providing the content that you love.

We have great things planned for the future of Spiral Nature, but we need your help to achieve our goals. For more information about what’s in store, see our milestone goals.

For more information on how you can help, please consider becoming a Spiral Nature Premium Member. There are various perks associated with each membership level, but kicking even five bucks a month our way helps us pay our writers and keep the lights on. Thanks!
