Llewellyn Worldwide (formerly Llewellyn Publications) is a New Age publisher, currently based in Woodbury, Minnesota, a suburb of St. Paul.

"As the world's oldest and largest independent publisher of books for body, mind, and spirit, Llewellyn is dedicated to bringing our readers the very best in metaphysical books and resources. Since 1901, we've been at the forefront of holistic and metaphysical publishing and thought... Llewellyn has grown to include two critically acclaimed and award-winning imprints; Midnight Ink mystery titles and Flux novels for young adults. Flux is proud to have launched the careers of three New York Times bestselling authors: Laurie Faria Stolarz, Maggie Stiefvater, and Simone Elkeles. Elkeles's Flux title Return to Paradise made its debut on the New York Times bestseller list in September, 2010. Llewellyn has also partnered with Italian publisher Lo Scarabeo, and is the exclusive US and Canadian distributor of Lo Scarabeo's beautiful tarot and oracle decks."[1] A new era at Llewellyn Publications commenced in 1961, the year Carl L. Weschcke of St. Paul, Minnesota purchased the company and relocated it to the Midwest. [1]

"In 1974, Carl Weschcke’s “Principles of Wiccan Belief” was adopted by the U.S. Army Chaplains. In addition to publishing or re-issuing influential works by Raymond Buckland, Dion Fortune, Aleister Crowley, Lady Sheba, Melita Denning, and Osborne Phillips. Llewellyn published Israel Regardie’s The Golden Dawn, A Garden of Pomegranates, The Middle Pillar and The Tree of Life—four books forming a complete library of esoteric knowledge and practice. " [2]

"Llewellyn also expanded into magazine publishing with the purchase in 1988 of FATE Magazine. First published in 1948 by the legendary Ray Palmer and Curtis B. Fuller, FATE was the world’s first magazine devoted to exploring paranormal phenomenon and is the longest running periodical of its genre. " [3]
