The Wizard and The Witch: Vol I
Spiritual Pioneers, Sexual Revolutionaries
This is the stranger-than-fiction story of two soulmates who
rejected the status quo and embraced higher ideals … and had
a whole lot of fun while they were at it. Reclaiming Pagan as a
spiritual identity—and living in an open marriage for over four
decades—Oberon and Morning Glory Zell truly embody the
freedom to think, to love, and to live.
Telling the story of their singular lives in this unique oral history, Oberon and Morning Glory—together with a colorful tribe of friends, lovers, musicians, homesteader, researchers and ritualists—reveal how they established the Church of All Worlds, revitalized Goddess worship, discovered the Gaea Thesis, raised real Unicorns, connected a worldwide community through Green Egg magazine, searched for mermaids in the South Pacific, and founded the influential Grey School of Wizardry.
Join Morning Glory and Oberon as they share the highs and lows of their extraordinary lives, and explore the role they played in shaping the community of Witches and Pagans that thrives in the world today.

True Iconoclasts of the Counterculture
In the ‘60s, there were flower children, there were hippies, and then
there were Oberon Zell and his soulmate, Morning Glory. The first
people to reclaim the word “Pagan” to define the profound spiritual
identity they helped create, Oberon and Morning Glory were true
pioneers whose indelible influence on modern society has only been
understood by those closest to them . . . until now.
In The Wizard and the Witch, the Zell’s close friend and associate
John Sulak shares the amazing stories of two people, along with their
far-reaching community of friends and lovers, who managed to
evolve their spirits and their lives in ways never before imagined.
Without ever compromising their radical ideals, Oberon and Morning
Glory pushed the boundaries of free speech, free religion, and
freedom of sexual choice.
The way this book is written and the way each individual that
participated in this expresses themselves is beyond beautiful. The big
aspect for me in this book was their openness about their sexuality
and the unique connections that they form with those they share their
lives with. I feel that this book expresses Love, Sex, Body Image and
Connection in a great way. It’s not bastardized by a negative religious
view but embraced by this positive inclusive view.
