Green Witchcraft 1

By Ann Moura


“Learn the basics of Witchcraft from a third-generation Witch raised in a family tradition. Positive, practical, and easy to use, Green Witchcraft brings together the best of both modern Wicca and the author’s family heritage of herb craft and folk magic.

Green Witchcraft explores the fundamentals of the Wiccan religion, providing magical training for the independent thinker. Step-by-step instructions on a wide variety of magical techniques as well as basic rules of conduct make this the ideal book to get you started. Green rituals for self-initiation, rites of passage, seasonal celebrations and activities provide an excellent foundation for your own magical tradition.

Discover the fine art of spellcasting, the magical uses of herbs, divination with the tarot and more. Explore the Sabbats, Esbats, and other rituals attuned to the cycles of nature and the universal powers. Find out for yourself what this organic approach to Witchcraft is all about.”

This is one of the first books I read that gave me an inkling about the benefits of practicing witchcraft without wiccan undertones, this book is strong in it’s Wicca flavour , that being said, it did offer an alternative path than I had previously been learning. It led me to adopt a green path along the way.

Green Witchcraft is well written, it is interesting and informative, and the author gives personal accounts of her family practice and traditions which is nice. Other reviewers have reamed her out for her apparent ‘anti Christian’ ranting but I don’t think its all that in your face, it’s there but I don’t really think about it as it is a small part of the book and not the whole of the book.

It’s a wonderful book to start you on the path of Green Witchcraft and it allows for leaving out the Wiccan flavour and purely working with the witchcraft part. If this is an area that interests you I would definitely recommend getting the book and having a read!
