Indoctrination is the greatest binding spell of all time and knowledge the purest form of spiritual liberation.

Hello! I'm Vanessa Rose, a historical scholar and Christian witch with a passion for learning...

More specifically, a passion for unlearning all the bullshit we've been conditioned to believe as absolute fact regarding witches, witchcraft and the Bible. Why? Well, let's just say that growing up Roman Catholic, I know what it's like to be torn between intuition (what we feel) and indoctrination (what we're taught to be true). But even more, I found it difficult to find people I could have these conversations with. So after graduating with double bachelors in History and Religious Studies from Arizona State University, I set off to find my people and the Secret Garden was born.
