We are a group of esoteric explorers coming from different philosophical backgrounds and "magickal" perspectives -- Namely from Tantric, Wicca, Hermetic and Atheistic backgrounds. At TantricPagans, it is not our goal to preach any particular philosophy, but to remain open minded and exploratory.
Our goal here is to help our readers transform their reality and life experience by utilizing tools from esoteric practices to maximize the effects of their will on the cosmos.
It doesn’t matter if you are a Hermeticist, Hindu, Tantric, Chaos magician, a Druid, a Wiccan or a Witch of any order or even an Atheist. We think you’ll be right at home here -- we believe they have all evolved out of the human psyche, varying only in the exterior manifestation. We look for the essence and the "meta" behind every philosophy and practice out there.
