Overview

Walk your personal Pagan path with grace and wisdom, integrating a spiritual practice into your life in just a few minutes per week. Simple, fun, and easy to follow, Everyday Witchcraft shows that, no matter how busy or hectic life is, even small acts can add meaning and depth to your life.

This remarkable book is filled with creative ideas and a variety of quick yet significant ways to connect with the rhythms of nature each day, not just on sabbats or the full moon. Make your home into a magickal place, work with the God and Goddess on a regular basis, and discover the magickal power of animals. From five-minute rituals and "hibernation vacations" to mini daily divinations, you can easily make the wisdom and practice of Witchcraft an enriching part of everyday life.

Praise:

"A must-have for any Witch looking to evolve their practice from a mere study of the Craft into a fully fledged lifestyle."—Melanie Marquis, author of A Witch's World of Magick and The Witch's Bag of Tricks
