Carl Llewellyn Weschcke is Chairman of Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd., one of the oldest and largest independent publishers of New Age, metaphysical, self-help, and spirituality books in the world. He played a seminal role in the rise of Wicca and Neo-Paganism in the 1960s and 1970s and has been called "the father of New Age" for his public sponsorship of occult subjects.

Still actively associated with Llewellyn, he is devoting more time to studies and practical research in parapsychology, quantum theory, Kabbalah, self-hypnosis, psychology, Tantra, Taoism, Tarot, Astrology, Shamanism, Wicca, Magick, and World Spirituality.
