Using spirituality

Many werewolves have found that spirituality has helped them on their path of self-discovery as werewolves.  Now, I know the word “spirituality” can sometimes be a sensitive thing to say as many have the common misconception that spirituality is and must involve religion – and this is simply not true.   Yes, religion can – and often does – include spirituality, but spirituality does not always have to include religion – and for many werewolves they are completely separate. Spirituality is at its core about discovering and finding peace with your inner self.  It’s about coming to terms with who...

The concept behind this is similar...

Word is out that the movie American Werewolf in London is definitely going to be remade.  No ifs, ands, or buts – an AWIL remake is on the way!  This is good and bad.  Good because of course, any movie that is centered around werewolves – especially one as good as American Werewolf in London – deserves to be seen by new audiences.  I know alot of times, I hate seeing movies that are old just because they seem so…well,…old!  So, it will be nice to see a modern retelling.  Also, I think this movie is a better “werewolf...

New Werewolves – werewolf evolution

The werewolves that are being depicted in modern media is what many would call “new werewolves“. They are not the werewolves of yesterday with hair all over their bodies and an uncontrollable urge to attack people. The new werewolves are werewolves that resemble humans. This is what the media depicts, and alot of this has to do with what people are interested in in pop-culture today. But, if you leave media behind, a new question poses itself - are there really “new werewolves”? In other words, have werewolves been evolving the way that humans have evolved? The study of...

Can werewolves be trusted?

For some reason, there is the perception among humans that werewolves cannot be trusted. This rumor may have originated from a few different sources – the most likely source of this rumor is probably from the actions of werewolves themselves.  Werewolves harbor a secret which they do not share freely with everyone, and so they themselves to do not trust people easily. Because they themselves have a very hard time with trust, the perception that they  cannot be trusted likely started to grow and spread. Another possible origination of this rumor is from the misinterpretation of what a werewolf...
